Need some newb tips for mvc3/using and modding a stick


#1

Hi, my entire fighting game career is about two weeks old, minus a few 3d fighters on the ps2.
I am trying to learn marvel vs capcom 3, and I’m using a Hori Fighting Stick V3.

I have a bunch of questions for you.

First off, how do I do dragon punches properly with a square gate? Is there a shortcut like in SSF4? If so, how do I do that properly?
Should I get a octagonal gate if I don’t plan to use charge characters in other games?
Does the V3 have those quick disconnect buttons? Do I have to learn to solder wires should I ever ruin one?
My right wrist hurts, is my finger positioning bad? Do I play it like a piano, or rest my hand on the box thing?

What are things to look for when making a team? I understand the concept of point, assist, and anchor. And also battery characters and hyper meter users. But what characters fit those roles?

Same was as on any other stick/pad: :dp: + button.

Is there a shortcut like in SSF4?
no
Should I get a octagonal gate if I don’t plan to use charge characters in other games?
Short answer, no. Long answer, read the stickies before asking questions:

Does the V3 have those quick disconnect buttons? Do I have to learn to solder wires should I ever ruin one?
Again, stickies:

My right wrist hurts, is my finger positioning bad?
probably

Do I play it like a piano, or rest my hand on the box thing?
stickies, read them

A lot of characters fit several roles, but a few only fit one (or barely at that).

Instead of listing through the whole game, check out the marvel guide and marvel section:
