First impression: They clearly play different from the US players so far. US players seems to be aiming for unblockables and triangle jumps. These Korean seem more to be into how to frame trap, and supers to counter supers. Korean also seems to use a lot less the X-factor. I can't believe I am watching this. I should stop. I would probably never play this game but damn it is entertaining to watch.

What? You mean Koreans are playing a game that ISN'T Starcraft 2?

Be afraid... Be very afraid!

How do you do that mag loop?

#5 It's good because it builds crazy amounts of meter on top of the damage. Also it's a guaranteed level 3 setup (considering with a certain amount of meter already the combo easily gets you to that level 3.) Also the air throw reset was working wonders in there, Infiltrations Magneto is really looking solid.

I love seeing Sentinel lose in tournaments. That being said, nice matches.

Seems a bit slow paced compared to US players.

@4 agreed, they're is a clear difference in playing style

i think it'll be great seeing asian players come over to the US and watching how the dynamic between the two playing styles unfolds

Crazy wolverine and magneto

Dare I say it, Infitration's Wolverine looks more deadly than Justin's

#16
Oroku_Saki said on March 11, 2011 at 12:45 a.m.

Those were entertaining matches. Infiltration was great with the Wolverine rushdown.
I hope to see more from Poongko later on.

looks like they actually play the game and not spam and turtle like lil b1tches

thank you number 21 :]

Poongko seems like he's handicapping himself by using Ryu... and then trying to be offensive with him.

I wish Poongko would change Ryu to Wesker. Dante/Wesker/Sentinel = best team evar! ;)

Infiltration is craaaaaazy.

Seems like the Korean players are picking up the game quicker than the japanese players, and with all the frantic action going on they seem to be keeping track of it pretty well (not too surprising looking at all the stuff to keep track of in StarCraft 2). Nice to see some Ryu usage, espicially using the wall bouce kick in combos which I think is something hasn't been used well by alot of people yet and basically gives you a free super opportunity when hit.

#26
orderofmerlin said on March 11, 2011 at 4:49 a.m.

Korean players are suited for this games pace. StarCraft2 they reach up to 200(i forget the exact pls correct me if im wrong)actions per minute or more I don't know what the highest is lately. good stuff

#27
orderofmerlin said on March 11, 2011 at 4:53 a.m.

also, if someone speaks Korean I bet that somewhere along all that commentating the announcers are saying something about Sent's cheapness.

These guys need to stick to sf4, ive seen higher level play in online ranked matches

abramdarnutzer said on March 11, 2011 at 7:04 a.m.

They look solid. There is no doubt of that. But as good as Infiltration's Magneto looked, I still think Floe's looks better.

I'm not trying to be regionally biased. It's just my opinion. I do hope this turns into a world wide game. (But I still want the US to be the best at it. Who's with me!? USA! USA! USA!.....joke)

#33
SoundwaveButcher said on March 11, 2011 at 7:23 a.m.

American top players seem to use more assists to rush down and protect recovery.Maybe Koreans wont risk their assist being killed off.

Very good play.

#34
Cammystrike said on March 11, 2011 at 7:53 a.m.

Why do people think our way of playing is the only way to play? We play more flashy and risky with all the assist calling and heavy combos. Which might blow up in our face when faced against a more conservative style like this.

#35
Combo_Knight said on March 11, 2011 at 8:09 a.m.

@ #8

Well It's just about the same meter being built for mine+ relaunch but It does look very well done, and it was well executed.

#36
HypahVypah said on March 11, 2011 at 8:16 a.m.

These guys are pretty good, but what their metagame strategy looks like compared to ours is what MvC2's metagame strategy looked like in 2003 compared to post-2006. We've moved on from this style of play and gone straight for the maximization of damage off of punishes as a mathematical calculation of skill. Let's see if the others can catch up.

#37
Bibuki said on March 11, 2011 at 8:37 a.m.

Infiltration is pure rush.

#38
BurningVigor said on March 11, 2011 at 9:08 a.m.

Man Koreans are always more entertaining to watch. Always going for rushdown, resets, and flash at the same time.

Too bad doing that isn't the way MvC3 is designed :(

#39
SeriphAngel said on March 11, 2011 at 9:18 a.m.

If only they knew how much scaling hyakurestu did per hit...

#40
cloudstrife360 said on March 11, 2011 at 9:40 a.m.

This is why I love MvC3. Characters like Tronne are used in tourneys, and Sentinel doesn't always win. I don't think he's broken at all!

#41
Akro said on March 11, 2011 at 10:28 a.m.

Infiltration is the Justin Wong of Korea but better. He's way ahead of the competition in both SSF4 and MVC3. Poongko gets pooped on by him in both. lul poor poongko, he thought he was good til' Infiltration showed up.

I believe Infiltration is Justin Wong's only competition as of now in MVC3. Atleast for now.

sojiki said on March 11, 2011 at 10:46 a.m.

@7 i thought you quit marvel ;d

#43
Deadds said on March 11, 2011 at 1:17 p.m.

@HypahVypah

stop trying to sound smart.

The only difference is that they don't spam assist like retards.

in about every us mvc3 match, assists are always getting caught in random hypers.

yes, let hope they catch up.

#44
crispylinks77 said on March 11, 2011 at 1:59 p.m.

@ 42

Wow, you're calling Infiltration being better than Justin Wong? I seriously doubt it. All I saw in these matches was that Poongko and Singkoa didn't know how to block, especially during the transition between one char being killed and the other entering. Slso, Poongko snapped in Phoenix (why?) and chose the wrong assists (using Sentinel's bombs).

Justin Wong has way better defense and he blocked way crazier mixups than what Infiltration was doing.

No offense to anyone, but I feel as if most of the people here are overhyping Infiltration. Floe, Richard Ngyuen, RyRy, Josh Wong, and most of the American pros would beat him easily at the level he's at now.

it's just the begining!!!

umad said on March 11, 2011 at 10:34 p.m.

wait, people are thinking infil's wolverine is better than wong's? bahahaha, k. wong's wolverine looks a lot better. better resets (that's some SFIV crap resets he's using), better spacing, better blocking. floe's mag movement is also better than infil. lots of other country nuthuggers ITT.
