Hey, I had an idea. Most games don’t really need a thread for this, but Marvel has a few things going for it here:
-Really open game engine. You can never say never in this game, because there is an exception to every rule, intentional or not.
-Dominating Tactics: In a game as open as this, there are so many tactics that can come out of no where and destroy even the best players. We’ve already seen ChrisG win nearly every major he attends, and sometimes people like Kusoru (remember him?) and Frusty come out of the woodwork and amaze us with crazy things that we never really see. Sometimes this kind of thing gets a bandwagon following, and it is interesting to see how people jump to any character that shows promise, only to drop them because they aren’t the crazy sleeper god tier they were expecting.
-Drama: Ah yes, the Marvel scene and our drama. If we aren’t starting wars between each other (NorCal vs SoCal, East vs West, America vs The World), we are popping off on each other on stage (PR Rog) and behind the scenes. Shit gets hype, yo. This is mostly a place to discuss the former, but there is room to weigh in on the influence of the latter upon the former as well.
So, because of all this, I felt that Marvel needed a thread to actively discuss the meta, locally and overall, so I made one. Here are a few questions to get things started:
-What characters are most common per each scene? (I’ve seen a fair amount of Haggar out of the East and South, but West Coast seems to ignore the guy.)
-Is MorriDoom and/or TACs killing this game?
-What players are best equipped to take out ChrisG? Even the best players can only scrape a few rounds from him.
