Flying While Intoxicated: The MvC3 Iron Man thread

Iron Man players need to make more use of:

Smart Bombs (L and M mostly)
Kara Canceling

That’s precisely what I’m gonna start doing. I tend to lean on repulsor blast for random damage especially when I have xf3 left.

You mean like in the video you posted?

You should post up matches off yourself ve.

i use smartbombs all day every day… they are GOOD. i use L when poking but mostly when i want to follow with addf… i use h when i just want to poke then fly/dash away.

45 degree angled fireballs are the best zoning techniques in the game besides pillars… so if you got 'em… use 'em.


Which karas are you talking about Flying?

Anyone manage to convert consistently from Jam Session Assist?

Mostly just Kara off the jC. j2C>Smartbombs is particularly good in the corner.

Jam Session links into S. I use it to relaunch fairly often.

In the interest of having the UMvC3 character threads be as awesome as possible, I am posting here to offer up my current Ultimate Dormammu Thread as a base skeleton to anyone who intends to manage a character thread, or something similar, in Ultimate. It is currently stripped of information, and will remain so until about a week before release. I am not attempting to toot my own horn, but rather offer to others what took me quite a bit of work to do, so that those who would rather not spend the time on such things do not have to.

I have received a lot of compliments to-date about the structure, and a few people have requested permission to use its structure for UMvC3, so I thought I would go around and make the offer to others who might not be aware that someone out there has already done the grunt work for them (haha). Because I am posting this in all the character forums, and this is time consuming on its own, I have not taken the time to check for how developed the thread I am posting on current is. Thus, I ask that no one be offended at my suggestion if your character forum is well constituted already - I mean no intrusion upon your methodologies!

Here is a link to the thread blueprint:

You can get an example of what it looks like when filled out here:

You are of course entirely welcome to change whatever you like if you want to incorporate this structure into your own thread. I have all of my posts saved as Word documents on my computer. If you would like these documents instead of having to copy/paste from the main threads, please feel free to PM me your email address, along with the character thread they will be used for, and I will gladly send them.

Highest Regards to All,

I nominate FlyingVe for handling the “Dat Arc-Reactor Technology” UMVC3 Iron Man thread, without his consent :slight_smile:

I can do threads, make videos and whatnot. But I won’t accept the nomination until I actually get UMvC3. I don’t want to have a thread about a character I don’t like, and I don’t believe in letting threads die. Keep them updated as long as it’s relevant.

I’ll help as much as I can :slight_smile:

I’m not sure I’ll be playing him either. He will be a completely different character in Ultimate and so far I’m not thrilled with what I’m hearing.

Yeah, that’s where I’m at too. I really don’t think he’ll “feel” like Iron Man anymore. The question is whether I like the new character or not. I am addicted to unibeam assist…

It’ll be between IM and hawkeye for me!

I have 100% character loyalty to Stark. He’s the main reason I even play this game.

I’ll still be here

Have been and still will be playing Iron Man since day 1, even if I still can’t do any relaunch or flight combos.

Don’t worry, I’ll have stuff for all ya’llz soon. probably start with trials though…

Iron Man scales down to 10% instead of 20% now. He will probably end up doing way less damage in his combos despite things like repulsor spread causing a hard knockdown.

Yeah, but don’t his specials scale better? Plus he has new links and combo routes (thanks to faster fly and the AD cancelable jNormals) that could still have his overall damage where it was before or better.

His abare will be better that’s for sure, and that was one of his biggest problems in Vanilla.

The brunt of his damage came from the normals. I’m pretty sure his damage will be the same (only because of the mashable supers) or worse.

That change alone is huge, Tasky seems to have lost about 200k damage on his combos because of the same thing.

I will agree that hit confirming will be easier though.

So I got the game and Iron Man seems really obtuse. He definitely has better wall carries, but they’re really weird compared to Magneto’s.

After about a half hour with him I managed to break 800k, so maybe I was a little hasty in saying that the scaling nerf would hurt him.

He’s definitely not a rushdown character now though.
