Yep, I can hear the naysayers already. Didn’t you do some shit like this for SF4 with Justin? Yes, and until he stopped showing up, it was getting very positive reviews. Even after I discontinued the service, some people told me that they hoped to see something similar in the future.
Well, it just happens that SooMighty is interested (and committed) to teaching people Marvel. Again, this isn’t for people who are flat out new at the game. This is for people who understand the mechanics of the game. Neither is it for people who need to ask the question “If I beat him, do I get a refund”? This isn’t for people who already good. This isn’t for people who already have a good scene that can help sharpen their skills. However, if none of the above apply to you, this can definitely help you out. Do not expect (nor is it advertised) that SooMighty will turn you into a champion. But, not everyone learns the same way. Some can learn from just playing the game with others competitively, and figure out for themselves what to do. Some can learn by reading a strategy guide/tutorial. But some (like me) learn by people showing them what they’re doing right, what they’re doing wrong, and most importantly, what to do next.
The instructions on how to sign up are here (registration required). The fee is $10 for 10 matches; Soo will give you advice/tips/observations live during the matches. He will also answer any questions you might have about the game.
Of course, I’ll answer any questions you might have.
P.S. If you don’t know who SooMighty is, he’s considered one of the best OG players in Marvel vs Capcom 2. He took 5th (out of 240+ entries) at this year’s Evolution World Tournament.
Edit: 8.26.09 - Soo had some real life issues that came up, so he’s unable to do the tutoring service for the time being. I might have a replacement that’s equally as talented, so I keep you guys informed.
