This mode is now available! Choose your side and fight!
This is a new separate mode that has been added as** FREE** DLC to UMvC3. It’s similar to the SFxT gem system, where you use cards in specific decks to adjust your team with abilities and buffs.
Each week you will chose your side, Heroes or Heralds, and fight it out online to save or defend the earth with your deck of cards you have created. At the end of each week, earth’s fate will be decided.
The offline play is what earns you cards, and is guided by a territory control system. There is a hit-list for targeting specific characters, and if you can line the X’s on the hit-list up in a line (ala bingo) you will open an opportunity to unlock rarer cards.
Here is a complete list of the cards available
Since this is an entirely separate mode, I think this sounds like a really fun and interesting addition. The ability to join clans and collect tons of cards (over 100, with I’m sure more to come) makes this pretty much a completely different way to play the game, and could be very interesting in it’s own right.
Plus it will most certainly appeal to casual players which is good for this game, because they can easily be turned off by getting bodied by huge combos. Especially since this version will already have many players with a lot of experience with MvC3.
Seth Killian has said that this mode will not be balanced, and is more for pure fun.
Here you can talk about cards, strategies, form clans, and other general discussions about H&H mode.
I’ll update this thread with more info as it comes in.
