Thought this could be a fun topic with the year change coming up. Are there any major changes you’d like to make to your game or characters that you haven’t due to simply being a bit lazy or due to bad habits? Are there any specific bits of tech you’ve shied away from learning so far? Do you need to learn to stop ragequitting? What are some of your New Year’s resolutions that will pertain to UMVC3? Topic’s a bit blog-like rather than discussion-centric, I know, but let’s see. They say it helps to write down your resolutions, so maybe this will help us level up our games.
For me, I really can’t wait for this upcoming week and a half off for xmas and new years. I’ll be at my folks who don’t have high speed internet, but I’ll be bringing this game along so that I can finally hit training room for an extended period of time (I like playing against people too much to go into training room more than a couple minutes at a time when I play it normally). .
I’ve been able to get by and do decently just based on a fundamentals and decent combo/reset ability, but I’m definitely not using/abusing any advanced tech for my characters, and I aim to change that.
Top priorities for the New Year:
Wesker H/gun loop reset/mixup
Better Spencer mid screen combo (I’m still just doing air series into grapple into bionic arm, so lazy)
Master Spencer’s super jump cancel cancel vertical grapple
Better Spencer mixups using his upwards diagonal ziplines, and getting better at using his overhead (I always have a problem accidentally doing piercer when trying to move from crouched normals to forward-H)
Nova javelin resets and javelin tag out combos
Finally get down Nova’s H loop
Get solid with Wesker’s extended combos in case he winds up alone (I’ve been a bit lazy using assists to extend at the cost of being less than perfect when I need to pull off some solo stuff)
Stop playing this game while drunk (haha, yeah right)
Get over being embarrassed about losing in public and get to some tournaments if I’m still living in the LA area, even if it means getting embarrassed about losing in public.
The idea of doing “work” for a video game in order to play it stills feels wrong to my brain, but I really need to do it if I’m going to get anywhere in this game. I ceilinged out at 4th lord in Vanilla, since I couldn’t beat the barrage of cosmic and master lords you get paired with at that point, so I’d really like to change that.
This will also be the first time I actually have a an answer for when people ask me what my new year’s resolutions are, with the added bonus of people not knowing what the fuck I’m talking about.
