I’ve been into gaming for a very long time, never really got in to the whole 2d fighting game genre though. I decided I wanted to change that, so I recently decided to pick up UMvC3.
First day playing (about a week ago), I decided to jump into online mode immediately. I got my ass handed to me several times which I expected for the most part due to the fact that I didn’t know any combos, team setups, strategy, etc.
I went to training mode and started gradually learning the basics, went back online. Got raped once again. Then decided I needed to go on the internet and learn the characters, terminology, setups, etc. Started trying out tonnes of different team setups, assists, positioning, etc.
Went back to training mode, practiced a lot more, began to grasp the concept. Started actually winning some online matches, still had a fair share of losing.
I’m now at the point where I have decided who I want as my “main team”, this includes:
Point: Deadpool, assist=quick work.
Second: Dante, assist=jam session.
Anchor: Doctor Doom, assist=plasma beam.
So now I have a few questions for you guys…
Thoughts on my team and tips on how to improve it? I really do enjoy using deadpool even though he isn’t the greatest.
When doing things such as “Mission Mode”, I can never seem to string the combos fast enough, even though I swear I am pressing the buttons as fast as humanly possible. What’s up with that, am I missing something?
Does Doctor Doom have an OTG, if so what is it?
Lasty, and this may just be due to lack of practice. But when doing attacks such as “Katana-Rama”, the stick motions seem to be very time consuming and awkward to do. It usually only works 50% of the time as well. Lack of practice, or am I just missing something?
Thanks to all who respond, very much appreciated.
