List: Most Common Characters Online


#1

**MAJOR EDIT: **I’ve started dividing the list based on player rank. The overall list has been removed, and will make a return once I do a little Visual Basic so that Excel does all the organization for me.

I recently picked up UMvC3, and in order to get a head-start on training, I’ve begun making this list as an attempt to find out who the most commonly used characters in Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3’s ranked matchmaking are. The list exists to be used as a training tool, showing which characters are used most often gives a good idea of what to expect and train for first.

This data was collected with an equal combination of Same and Any rank searches on the Xbox360 version of the game, and will be updated here whenever possible/convenient.


The rules for this list

  1. The player must be 7th rank or higher at the start and end of the match.

  2. Only one entry per player. If a player changes their team, the team that the player did better with is recorded. This is determined by winner and average health remaining for each team at match end.

  3. This list does not include my team, nor any teams I simply know of. It is comprised of teams that I have fought online in ranked matches only.

Ken


#3

Poor Hsien-Ko…Didn’t even make the cut…


#4

why does it seem like captain america has more ranked appearances than tournament ones? Rarely ever see one in a tourney, but can’t go four games without running into a Cap online.


#5

Same. If I had to guess, I’d say that combined with the right assists, Cap’s air Shield Slash is almost like an “easy button” way to start a combo ending in Hyper Charging Star against a lot of characters. Add input delay into that and he can easily hold down a large portion of the screen vs. characters that lack a fast teleport while his assists keep him safe.


#6

i never see vipers which iz good, cuz I use her

least used iz megaman


#7

Captain America is an online friendly character, you can get away with a ton of scrubby online tactics.


#8

List updated. I’m actually kind of shocked how low Zero is, since half of everyone I know locally uses him.


#9

i guess it’s becasuse people online are too busy mashing on buttons to keep one held down…

ps: do me a favor and adjust your spelling of Vergil this hurts my eyes!


#10

Interesting idea - I’d be more interested in seeing separate lists as you go up in rank. Maybe zero’s under-represented in your experience because everyone playing Zero has already outranked you, lol.


#11

Huh, so I’m not the only Chris player online.


#12

live results prob has a good bit of diff to the psn


#13

I guess that’s a good point.


#14

Felicia didn’t make it in :frowning:


#15

This is something I will start doing today.


#16

I mostly see wesker and Frank west Team Setups online all the time


#17

I second this. I have been noticing an influx in Frank West teams lately as well. Played a few games against you the other day pavy. (Servebots)

Also I think Zero is not as high on the list just because he isn’t easy mode top tier. I am looking at you Wesker/Doom.


#18

List updated, 4th rank added. Overall list will return in the next list update, as well as a list of team compositions.

Been spending most of my time in player matches and the training room as of late trying some new characters and team ideas, updates to the list are slowing way the hell down as a result.


#19

3rd lord reporting, Dormammu/Wesker/Doom ftw.
