Question about the Cvs2 playtesters scandal


#1

I wasn’t really paying attention when it was mentioned here (if ever), but is it true that the playtesters for cvs2 purposefully didn’t inform Capcom of the roll-cancel glitch just so they could use it as a secret weapon against their opponents in an upcoming tourney? If true, what actions were taken on Capcom’s part when their omission was discovered?


#2

Capcom didn’t care when Bas reported Bison CC bug to them. One of the beta testers did discover RC and held onto that secret until EVO. I forget who it was, but it was a Boxer player.


#3

:wtf:


#4

Yeah… not quite.

The part about Bison CC is true (except the part about it being a glitch… it’s just a normal combo, fully allowed by the intended A-Groove system).

RC wasn’t discovered in play testing. I believe it was some random boxer player that figured it out, and showed everyone at the first Japanese nationals (the one Nuki won).


#5

I heard a rumor that CvS2 had Ex-specials for P-groove but removed them after Bas felt that it made P-groove too powerful?

Anybody know anything about this?


#6

Yeah, I also heard the prototypes had EX moves for P-groove. I wonder if anybody has one of these?

I’d just like to see a video of it.


#7

Never heard about EX specials in P-Groove… that would have been hella sweet.


#8

Whats the deal with sak a-groove? why is her Srk the only 1 able to repeat over and over but every1 else Srk whiff after a couple hits? :confused:


#9

lol “Scandal”? Hilarious. Evil playtesters, developer conspiracies; c’mon people. Not saying its not true, but still… lol.


#10

She doesn’t leave the ground as quick as the other characters because she does the little run up first.


#11

Little known fact: Marvel play testers found the AHVB a few days into testing and even informed the peeps in charge.

Needless to say they did approximately dick.


#12

All I know is Spider-Dan was owning everyone with Shuma Gorath… regardless of other people using AHVB. Probably the reason why Capcom toned down Shuma and left Cable alone.


#13

Are there ANY videos from the tests of either Marvel or CvS2?


#14

Not true, people would have started using that shit much sooner in tournys if they would have known about it.


#15

when did people start using it? i think people would have easily discovered that one quick. i remember when i first started playing mvc2, i discovered that cable could do two consecutive AHVBs with regular jump. when my friend showed me how to actually use the ahvb i felt stupid…


#16

people didn’t use ahvbz in tournys until a long time after mvc2 came out.


#17

There was a thread like this a while back. I remember a post saying that RC was in CVS1 but rolls didn’t have invincibility in that game so it didn’t matter.


#18

Duc Do found AHVB three days after MVC2 came out/played it for the first time.


#19

ok vids please of earliest seen footage of ahvb.


#20

im pretty sure duc won (edit: might have come second) the first SHGL tourney using cable/OR/gief, using mech gief lariat assist to set up AHVB
