Suppose the community was to take a rom (for the sake of the rules let’s say a legitimate one) and/or copy of mvc2 and hack it- or a dumped copy from said legit rom- to buff up certain lower tiers back to their pre nerf strength (think X vs. SF). This isn’t “under mss/msp” low tier, more like below average low tiers like the shotos- outside of their nice assists of course… Back in the day, these guys had ridiculous things like infinites with just fw mk and were legitimate choices for teams. We could also take ideas from the later (and earlier, like I said before) vs games (mvc3), such as akuma’s demon flip otg’ing and giving chun back her level 3 from marvel 1.
Anyone like the sound of this?
I know this game has a modicum of balance already with certain low tiers, but some are just inadequate unless paired with the best assists, and even then they are sometimes only kind of good. This community has done a ROM hack before with “4th strike”, although the quality of it is arguable.
