Are you attending EVO this year again and will you be doing a panel? — Toshin

Svensson: I'm looking forward to EVO again this year. I've already booked a flight and a room. We'll have some things there to talk about and we had some meetings a couple weeks ago on what we'd be doing as far as activities go. I hesitate to share as I'm not sure they're fully baked/finalized with the EVO management yet, so I'm going to have to keep you in suspense for now.

Tiers for King of Fighters 13 by the EventHubs community

Tiers for King of Fighters 13 by the EventHubs community We have finished up the King of Fighters 13 tiers poll project here on EventHubs. This poll was conducted like the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 list we did in the past, as we asked voters to assign each character a letter grade ranging from A+ to D instead of voting on specific match ups.

The results have been tallied and we generated a list showing which letter grade each character falls under. There were some obvious troll votes that were not included in the final tally to keep the data as accurate as possible.

Please keep in mind that tier lists are mutable and characters can easily increase or drop in rank as time goes on. This list reflects the opinions of the community so do not take this as a final word over who is the best in the game.

Also keep in mind the fighters are sorted alphabetically in their respective letter grades. Hit the jump the check out the tier list.

Seth Killian: I've always felt character rankings in Marvel vs. Capcom games mostly miss the point

Seth Killian: I've always felt character rankings in Marvel vs. Capcom games mostly miss the point As of late there have been quite a few tier lists from various top players coming out for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Seth Killian, Capcom's Special Combat Advisor, posted his thoughts about these on his Twitter.

He brings up the idea of doing tier lists based on teams instead of a single character. Here is what he had to say.

Anyone want to do a credible Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 *team* rankings? I've always felt character rankings in Marvel vs. Capcom games mostly miss the point.

Top Marvel vs. Capcom 2 teams often had low-tier characters as necessary parts, and everyone got blown up by a tricky low tier team (with a great gameplan) at Final Round.

I agree that ranking EVERY team would be nuts, but ranking a few top ones would still say a LOT more than ranking characters in my opinion.

FGC ranked Marvel vs. Capcom 2 teams pretty effectively, and Capcom itself thinks a LOT about this question in the balancing process. I think the FGC can do it

Post a comment below and let us know your thoughts on the top tier teams.

Ricky Ortiz: I personally do NOT like 2v2. I don’t like to depend on a partner. I never been one for team tourneys in general

Ricky Ortiz: I personally do NOT like 2v2. I don’t like to depend on a partner. I never been one for team tourneys in general Andre Butler over at Evil Geniuses sat down with EG|Ricky Ortiz for a post Seasons Beatings interview. Various topics are covered in this article including his performance at Seasons Beatings Summer Slam, his thoughts on 2v2 being the Evo standard, his current training regimen and more.

Here is a bit from the article.

ATB_FTW: How do you honestly feel about 2v2 being the EVO standard for 2v2? Is it going to make it hard to practice for it as opposed to a 1v1 format?

RickyO: I personally do NOT like 2v2. I don’t like to depend on a partner. I never been one for team tourneys in general. To me, they feel like something more carefree and fun. They should never take the place as main event tho. I like the good old fashion 1v1. 1v1 displays a players skill more. Not to mention, it’s extremely hard to find/practice with a partner consistantly. I think that alone, discouraged people from giving the game a chance.

ATB_FTW: Is 2v2 truly the only way to make SFxT hype, or is there just something we’re missing about it being played in a 1v1 format?

RickyO: I say they should just let the game be played 1v1 to it’s full potential. With gems and all! HaHa! Only real way to see the game in it’s full glory.
