'Boss at all cost' Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Thor gimmick video

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 27, 2011 at 7:11 p.m. PDT
Covering one of the rarest characters you'll see in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, TENINCHLUVABOY did a gimmick video for Thor, titled 'Boss at all cost.'

This covers a variety of Thor setups from command grabs to high/low mix ups.

@#2

My teams so far are Wolverine/Thor/Hulk and Wolverine/Storm/Thor.

With that last team i can pretty much setup the reset glitch with Storm regardless of who is next in line.

@ It's a combo vid. Nobody uses him seriously!

Like Spiderman, MODOK, HSIENKO, Capt. America, S. Skrull, Viper. Iron-Man, Dead-Pool, Morrigan, and Arthur.

When's the last time you saw 2 people fighting each other with those characters in a Top 8?

This whole mighty spark --> mighty punish cancel thing feels like something that'll get fixed.
Am I the only one?

As a Thor user myself, to be honest, Hyper Mighty Hurricane is not all that. It's all about Mighty Tornado.

regular Mighty Hurricane is actually better because you can extend combos after it and eventually into Mighty Tornado. Give Thor a good OTG assist to extend his combos and a good projectile assist character and he'll be killing whole teams in no time.

People just ain't using Thor right, they revolve his game all around his Mighty Hurricane, just focus on damage and the rest will follow.

Mighty Hurricane is mainly for very passive defensive characters who like to block a lot, once you establish reliable pressure then you can threaten with his grabs. Revolving his game on trying to grab is gonna make Thor way too predictable.

@Mr_Clack you clearly don't watch enough matches do you? I've seen plenty of tourney players use Arthur

I use Viper. I just won a tournament with her actually. She's very very strong IMO. Curious to see how I do with her at Evo.

Thor is terrible even with the glitch, doubt Capcom cares at all.

I've seen those characters used frequently. Not a WHOLE lot, but you know. Morrigan is often used to aid Phoenix's bar (wouldn't it be hilarious if they used Thor's super taunt thing? ha!)

MODOK, Spider-man, Hsien-Ko, and Iron-Man I have not seen in the top 8s of much. I am a fan of Hsien-Ko and Spider-man though. I don't see much Chun-Li either. (Then again, I might have been out of the loop recently).

Anywhozlebees, it's always nice to see some other characters get exposure, no?

@#4 Mr_Clack Dude just watch:
"Mix Up Mondays" by Option-SelectDotCom (here's the link) http://www.option-select.com/news/?id=48
And also:
"Wednesday Night Fights" by Offcasts (here's the link) http://www.justin.tv/search?q=Wednesd...

Ryan Hunter uses Hsien-Ko, Flash Metroid uses Morrigan, so on and so forth...

@ #17 & #18 the Optionselect link clearly says "You can find the embedded stream in our menu. Or, you can view the stream directly on Justin.tv." Also on the right hand side of the site it says "Updates/Videos/Matches" you can find the archives of previous fights there. Read ppl read...

I like how half the tactics in this "Thor is awesome" video is to DHC away from Thor.

#19
hamster said on March 28, 2011 at 8:05 a.m.

A lot of the stuff in the video is not character specific to Thor. Interupting an opponent out of a non-invincible super is not something I would consider impressive.

It's like making a video of Thor and going, "Hey look Thor is awesome, he can chain normals together!"

It probably would have been smarter to just post the actual link if you were going to go through all the trouble in the first place.

WNF: http://www.justin.tv/offcast/videos

Also all those characters mentioned as "Not Used" is pretty faulty. Only characters I rarely see is only Thor and MODOK. People just don't want to take the time to learn them in my opinion.

MODOK is a cool keep away character if you can learn him. He's just extremely awkward to me. And I use DeadPool. Deadpool is a beast close up and has great keep away. He has a move that hits just about every part of the screen. Plus its DEADPOOL. He's worth using just to hear him speak lol

Not picking beef and definately not butt hurt... rather the opposite. I think it's frikkin hilarious. I got a good chuckle out of the video that's for sure.

It's odd that DHC's to counter supers are put in here which, though as illustrated might be a part of Thor's gameplan, are more about the DHC'ed character's counter super as opposed to anything Thor himself did directly.

I would have at least expected on the topic of DHC to have Thor paired with She Hulk so that Thor comes in with a super grab setup, if the opponent jumps away from it beforehand, DHC to She Hulk's anti-air grab super.

This is something more pertinent to Thor since it is something he specifically has a great effect on (i.e. you have to jump or you will get grabbed).
