Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will feature 'disconnecter hell' feature

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • January 11, 2011 at 10:33 a.m. PST
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will feature 'disconnecter hell' feature Like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will feature a 'disconnecter hell' feature which will attempt to match up people who rage quit with one another, according to a GamesRadar story.

The game will keep an invisible stat which monitors your connection habits. If it notices you pulling the plug during online games, it will start marking your reputation down. No-one else will see it, but the utterly amazing outcome is this: Rage quitters will be matched up with other rage quitters, allowing everyone else to enjoy the game in peace. Amazing.

Although a similar system was implemented into Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, there were some complaints that it wasn't completely effective, although it's possible Capcom has improved this feature to make it work better in the upcoming title.

Tip from Yasir.

Aww =( But its fun to talk to ragequitters =(

They leave your game, and then you send them a lyric from a sentimental 80's love ballad. They get so angry!

"Never wanna give you up, I wanna hold you in my arms forever"
"YA CUZ YOU THROW AND THATS ALL YOU DO FAG"

Mrb20028 said on January 11, 2011 at 11 a.m.

I love and hate rage quitters. I love them, because there frustration and anger is my joy. I hate them, because...well they're quitters. I have never in my life ever quit a match because I was getting my ass kicked. I accept defeat and just train more.

JMac said on January 11, 2011 at 11:01 a.m.

what? i don't get it how is this suppose to work? I mean say you have a bad connection with a few people and you were drop how are you suppose to know that the plug was pull or that the connection just drop? farther more most people wouldn't pull the plug they just go back to the dashbord.

zombieknob said on January 11, 2011 at 11:06 a.m.

for vanilla i was called a ragequitter everytime i lost connection with the server. I hope they have a great online system to lessen lag and to get rid of connection problems. But now i have a better router so connection is smooth sailing

Occasionally my internet plays up and I happen to disconnect unintentionally. Sad day if I get pitted up with all the quitters because of it

The_Killah29 said on January 11, 2011 at 11:14 a.m.

@JMac

i think cvs is partially right. if it was a hardware or intenet connection reason that you have become disconnected, i don't think it will count, but if you quit during the fight and not let the fight finish, that adds to the 'ragequitter' score.

that's how i'd program it anyway.

Mrb20028 said on January 11, 2011 at 11:26 a.m.

Well in SSFIV, you can tell whether someone lost connection or quit. You just have to pay attention. It will either say "The player has lost connection" or it'll say "The player has left the session". The 2nd phrase are rage quitters.

Raven said on January 11, 2011 at 11:43 a.m.

"The player has left the session"

I leave games when lag is spiking like a snow storm....does that make me a ragequitter?

This would be better in Japan, not US. The lag here is terrible online for fighting games. Not everyone will wait to get disconnected if they're getting pissed of by lag that's making them move in slow motion (it's happened to me a lot and I have cable internet). It's more sensible to leave the game if you're going to lose because of lag and you can't do anything about it.

The lag is the sole reason why this cannot be as effective as it would be in a lag free environment. I can see the holes already. If I end up fighting people who ragequit, I'll be selling my copy.

Kidjeronimo said on January 11, 2011 at 11:43 a.m.

MadnessFamilyguile said on January 11, 2011 at 11:46 a.m.

Yea i don't play mvc2 online but my friends strategy was to quit everytime someone picked the magneto sentinel storm team as a way of boycotting it.

Made sense to me. I find whiners are alot more annoying than ragequitters, but i don't meet many rage quitters. If only there was a feature to put all the whiners together.

"omg u only won cos x is overpowered in this game and i'm too dumb to counter it!"

"Omg you're character is so overpowered because i can't jump in like an idiot!"

"I am paper. Rock is working as intended, scissors needs nerf!!"

Yea those idiots should be put in a corner all by themselves

Hey, there's that infamous comic book scan that everyone went nuts over. Y'know, the one with Galactus and Taskmaster. I guess it really is official...

tokyobassist said on January 11, 2011 at 12:15 p.m.

Whatever...totally raging if I'm forced to counter god tier with god tier again as a means to win. I hated that about MvC2. I pretty much asked to lose by not picking Storm, Sentinel and Magneto and I HATE those characters.

#39
Mrb20028 said on January 11, 2011 at 12:20 p.m.

Well okay with the exception of lag, quitting because your losing is just lame. I hate the lag as well, because it ruins the flow of battles online.

#40
xShonuffx said on January 11, 2011 at 12:25 p.m.

I do quit if the lag is extreamly unbarable and the number of points they have is like freakin 0. But what gets me is how well some players play under lag, they never drop combos and are the most aggressive. And what do I hate more than Ragequitters? Lagswitchers. I swear it never fails, your winning and the flow of battle is in your favor and just before you do a specific move it stops, Then for some reason the other player is allowed to trounce on you. That right thur makes me want to rage quit man.

#41
Clyde_Wuts said on January 11, 2011 at 12:26 p.m.

So... for the front cover of their comic book, they used an artwork featuring Frank West's shadow.
Yet, it appears he's not in the game, according to Lupinko's list.

That's just great.

#42
xShonuffx said on January 11, 2011 at 12:29 p.m.

I also wanted to note something, I spoke about before regarding infinites, I can understand performing long hard to do combos but if you perform an obvious infinite and they ragequit you kind of don't deserve to send hate mail. Anyone who does an infinite is asking for it, it does'nt matter how you defend it, infinites are bad and to casual players it's worst. It might be ok on seasoned Tourney players who are use to it but don't expect some guy who is just having fun to just sit back and take it.

Infinite AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!

#43
The_Killah29 said on January 11, 2011 at 12:35 p.m.

@44
lupinko has most things right through lucky guesses and some common sence. but his frank west thing is obviously wrong. why would they even make a sihluette of him if he wasn't even in the game at all? i don't think lupinko is right about west at all.

Just cus it was said by kilian that you shouldn't believe anything you read or see online, is just common sence.

#44
The_Killah29 said on January 11, 2011 at 12:40 p.m.

@45

i only tend to use infinites for 3-4 seconds at a time periodically. 5-6 seconds if the guy is tougher.

so do i deserve the opponent to rage quit me at all?

thanks for the amen, DeathQuote44. :)
Frank west would be an interesting character to the game, and since jils moves were changed so she doesn't use zombies (i heard about that anyway, take it with salt), frank's RAM related ommision is BS, sice data goes on HDD now.

and the only reason they aren't showing him (or megaman) yet is because they are saving some of the most popular characters (that they believe) that are the most popular here in the good ol' North America. Logical no?

#47
The_Killah29 said on January 11, 2011 at 12:47 p.m.

(cont.) and to add them at the latest time possible before the game would build so much hype. Ingenious? Devious? a little of both? I believe the latter of the three.

Mrb20028 said on January 11, 2011 at 12:54 p.m.

Okay sorry for sounding noobish and all, but exactly how does lagswitching work? I've heard about it and I can kinda distinguish when it is happening, but how does a player do that? Because it is another really lame thing about playing others online.

NEWkidCJ said on January 11, 2011 at 12:55 p.m.

#50
Clyde_Wuts said on January 11, 2011 at 12:55 p.m.

@46
Common sense, lucky guesses, yeah, but I think guessing Jill and Shuma as DLC is something else. I mean, damn, I don't like believing in this guy, but everything he said was right.

And I seriously hope you're right about that idea of keeping the best for the last, even if it's for DLC... but these characters deserved a slot in the disc from the very beginning, IMO.

#51
J said on January 11, 2011 at 12:58 p.m.

I hope it makes a distinction between ragequitting and dropping connection unintentionally, because the latter happens to me sometime and it sucks if it makes somebody think you did it on purpose.

#52
ChunLi said on January 11, 2011 at 1:02 p.m.

@ J

A dropped connection is a dropped connection. If it was unintentional or forced, there is no possible way for a system to determine the "cause"...unfortunately.

#53
The_Killah29 said on January 11, 2011 at 1:03 p.m.

@53
i won't mind if the characters on lupinko's list weren't the only ones on the disk, if it is, i am dissapoint.

and since frank west is in the sihluette artwork, he is def in the game, playable or not. Hopefully playable.

CharlieKenSon said on January 11, 2011 at 1:09 p.m.

Well I'm sure there's a way to observe WHEN the disconnections occur. If you are always losing when this suddenly happens, 99 times out of a 100, you're a raged quitter.

For those of you saying they are noobs, not entirely. Some I were really good but I have beaten them with low tier to their TOP tier chars until they quit, trying to save their record. And those ppl STILL never reach the top BECUZ they lack TOP player skill.

It would definitely help to pick... (drum roll) connection with GREEN barred opponents. Duh

BlankaBeast said on January 11, 2011 at 1:13 p.m.

#57
Clyde_Wuts said on January 11, 2011 at 1:24 p.m.

@56 He better be. Only time will tell.
But still, if he's not in the game, even though they clearly intended to put him in at the beginning, then why, in the name of all that is sacred, they decided to put him out.
I just seriously hope that they didn't think of something like "Oh yeah, Jill has zombies too, let's put her instead."

The world needs Frank West.

#58
MadnessFamilyguile said on January 11, 2011 at 1:25 p.m.

Àlot of green bar connections mysteriously lag alot actually. There are plenty of decent reasons to quit in MVC2 being that it's a badly balanced game, but thats why i dont play it online.

SSF4 however, not a good reason to quit unless some scrub is causing lag to give himself the advantage

#59
Kratos94 said on January 11, 2011 at 1:30 p.m.

In SSF4 Rage quitters lose PP, isnt it?

#60
downruplyb said on January 11, 2011 at 1:34 p.m.

Capcom should make a special category in the Replay Channel just for ragequitters so they can be shamefully put on display for all to see.

#61
The_Killah29 said on January 11, 2011 at 1:37 p.m.

@60

i'm sure he is for 5 reasons
1) capcom thinks everyone loves him, so they will add him to MvC3 and, in their own words, 'to every game they can'
2) the artwork
3) if not capcom would lose fans, and therefore money
4) last minute reveals mean's last minute 'super-hype'
5) since when can his zombie moves cause RAM issuses on a game that you load to your hard drive?

#62
Mrb20028 said on January 11, 2011 at 1:37 p.m.

@57 Thanks for the video! But that is soooo lame to have one. Nothing will ever be fair when it comes to online play as long as you got lagswitchers, rage quitters, and boosters.

#63
shadow050 said on January 11, 2011 at 1:39 p.m.

thank god!
although, i hope it doesn't penalize things like the internet connection itself messing up. when i first moved into my apartment, i had timewarner cable and it would mess up sometimes, causing me to lose massive points... even when i was completely dominating lol.

#64
Clyde_Wuts said on January 11, 2011 at 1:50 p.m.

@64

-Of course, Capcom said the wanted to put him in every game they could, but they also said that they would try to not add anymore shotos, or darkstalkers characters, and also to not make too much quick assumptions from the character's shadows.
-The artworks date from the beginning, before he was, supposedly, taken out.
-Many fans would be disappointed, indeed, but I don't think those fans wouldn't buy the game just for one character.
-I can't disagree with that, but there are other very popular characters that could bring much hype, too. So idk.
-The RAM issues was BS from the start, and I don't even think this one's from Lupinko.

They could also thought that bringing Chuck Greene as DLC and thus, taking out Frank West would be more interesting because more people played Dead Rising 2.
I hope they didn't.

#65
The_Killah29 said on January 11, 2011 at 1:50 p.m.

@67

he never said anything about the shilluettes entirely, just not to trust everything on the internet, that is just common sense to anything online.

only the newbs who loved to spam magneto, storm and sentinal will be hyped.

P.S. and since when was Capcom's mascot a stupid character that nobody likes? or are you just a megaman-hater?

and i'm not confusing anyone, klennox was fake, we all know that. but i was saying that you, Cornwad, and lupinko are the same guy.

#66
Tankverso said on January 11, 2011 at 1:53 p.m.

yea, i hope they can distinguish between internet problems and plug pull

#67
The_Killah29 said on January 11, 2011 at 2 p.m.

@68

technically west isn't a shoto, since they changed jill's moveset (i think?)

ppl not buying a game cuz of one caracter is a strech, i know, but i exaggerated a little for my reasons (who doesn't from time to time?)

The Chuck greene theory is a welcome possibility, or him as an alternate costume for frank is welcome too.

anyway, i was just trying to give some logical reasons for him to be in the game, no harm, no foul, right? i just don't like to belive a 'leaked' list from some dude on a twitter account. and a lot of evidence points to west's inclusion in the game, i never really said he's playable, just that he's in, one way or another.

#68
MadnessFamilyguile said on January 11, 2011 at 2:01 p.m.

I dont see why people complain about boosting...who cares?

#69
Clyde_Wuts said on January 11, 2011 at 2:06 p.m.

Of course West isn't a shoto, but I just said that Capcom said this and that to show that they don't always seem to say the truth. The no more shotos for Akuma, and no more Darkstalkers for Hsien-Ko.
On the other hand, they said to not make assumptions from the shadows, especially when they were asked about the Frank West's one, on the same artwork they're using for the comic book.

Well, yeah, there are plenty of reasons to include Frank West in the game (playable, DLC, on the disc, I don't care, I just hope), but I just can't find a real good reason to take him out... I mean, I heard he was like, almost finished, so, why?

#70
The_Killah29 said on January 11, 2011 at 2:13 p.m.

@74
shoto is a term used for a clone or a person with a moveset that is almost the same but with subtle differences, such as ryu/ken/akuma/dan, cap. falcon/ganondorf, fox/falco/wolf, etc.

and taking a shot at my intelligence isn't nice, i don't go after yours, so why would you go after mine. i've tryed to be civil in our argument, but that just seemed a bit too uncivilised.

if the final roster is as what lupinko says, i'll admit i was wrong, if not, oh well.

ok ok, i took a shot at the dark on that one Cornwad, i'll admit i didn't know what shoto was, but i know now, and since i now know the actual definition, how is west or greene a shoto? none of them shoot fire balls or projectiles as far as i know, they were mugiver(?)-like, build-it-yourself melee fighters.

and now you have resorted to the 'no you' meme? ???

@75
yes i agree with you, if he was almost finished, why stop? if they just started then that's different.

#73
Zarudin said on January 11, 2011 at 3:30 p.m.

isn't the best solution just to give a loss to disconnector and a win to the other?

I guess it would be unfair for legit disconnects but the odds of that happening are really low anyways.

Well to be fair... You can still send them those beautiful videos and songs that add insult to them leaving... Just now you wont have to deal with them anymore..

It would be even worse if it somehow tracks your character usage and makes it to where whomever has the higher usages, they are disabled for online play.

#80
Zarathos said on January 11, 2011 at 5:01 p.m.

@#84

Why do you even assume you'd be lumped with rage quitters anyway ?

Like said above ssf4 made the distinction somehow between connection failures and ragequits .

If not anyway , you have no business playing mvc3 competitively if you get constant power outages .

I also bet the invisible nature of the feature got another purpose than still keeping rage quitters playing . I'm guessing after a while without abuse of that kind , you are back to your regular status

Even better, a detector on Guile players that detects how many seconds a Guile player presses back throughout the game and if he does it more than 80 percent of the time he loses BP and PP and the other player earns them, no matter who won :D That would teach the noobs a lesson :D
