listening to alphaism and ski is talking about what to do at the face off, and you know what, its so boring to just hear mags vs storm, sent vs storm, cable vs sent. i think new players are still learning a lot, but i would like to send a request to new players to master more than msp, mss, cccs, etc… bring some more new life to the game. i understand what is viable in tournament play for the most part, but lets not forget the joy of just playing games. dont get so caught up in, well i cant even think to beat a player like yipes unless i use these tier of characters. who cares. be the best with your respective team. i had much fun last night in the room we were playin. this dude was gettin off with amingo. he had a japanese first and last name, but i dont know if he was. just judging off his good play of lower tier characters and his name, i assumed he was japanese.
mix it up a bit. yeah, you can have cable on your team, why not, but style that shit up. work on that new shit. i dont know, im just not impressed by msp’s, mss, etc… im impressed by how people can execute so excellently but im not impressed that you can rush someone down with msp and regardless of their skill level, you can basically random them the fuck out with reset bullshit. id rather see someone doing wild shit with amingo, blackheart, spiral or something. that shits entertaining to me.
so i say, new players, i understand how you feel when your coming against people raping your team with beast characters, but dont let that discourage you, and dont just follow the leader. i think this is an excellent opportunity to bring marvel back around to something new again. after years of basically being caught in playing the same characters, maybe we can have hundreds of new players with a low/mid tier dedication, and hell, i would like to see evo even have a low/mid tier tourney too. get something new on the big screen.
i dont know, its just me. anyone feel that way? like i understand people been mastering their respective high tier teams for years now, and they want that type of comp also, but i would like to something new develop from this, and not another 200 sentinel/cable/ commando players. excuse the thread, i just felt that this is something someone starting out can see, and it may encourage them to be like, yeah, fuck that, im gonna stick with spiral/blackheart/guile or whatever.
im not saying its bad if you have cable on your team, or mags. i play cable and i enjoy it, but i mix it up too. i just dont want 5 months from now for online to just turn into top 8 at evo teams.
