Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tier list by IFC Yipes

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • May 27, 2012 at 6:36 p.m. PDT
Continuing with the top players' Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tier lists, BT|IFC Yipes has created his own. Yipes appears to have Zero, Spencer, Vergil and Phoenix as the top 4 characters and Hsien-Ko, Iron Man, Ghost Rider and Phoenix Wright seem to be among the lowest.

You can see how Yipes' opinions on character ranking compare to those of EG|Justin Wong, coL.cc|Filipino Champ and UVG|Noel Brown by checking out their tier lists here.

FIRST!
I agree with this tier list however phoenix needs to be pushed all the way on the left as she clearly has faults. Zero and Wesker should change places as should Viper and Spencer.

This is a decent tier list. The placement of Zero and Wesker are proper though-- the belief that Wesker is the most powerful character in the game is just a bandwagon belief from what I've seen and the changing results of tournaments.

finally someone uses both axis correctly, sentinel way too low imo

This is the first time I've seen Frank West that low.

why sent so low...

Lainensis said on May 27, 2012 at 6:51 p.m.

Hooolllllyyyy sheeet

did not expect to see jill placed so high.

xBMxSage said on May 27, 2012 at 6:57 p.m.

Finally a top player who places Chun-Li over Ryu.

Other than that, I think Nemesis, Frank West, MODOK, and Sentinel should be higher. While Sentinel is easy to read, he doesn't fit in the bottom 5 or 10 even.

never thought I'd see the day Hulk is almost as "well rounded" as Ammy

#8
BumblebeeCody said on May 27, 2012 at 7:07 p.m.

Sentinel being low is odd.
Also I think Ghost Rider is unexplored. Zero is really that good? Other than that, it's pretty good.

No phoenix is fine where she is her health is a big flaw but really its her only flaw and proper use of healing field and xfactor help.

#11
OhYouDontSayThat said on May 27, 2012 at 7:09 p.m.

get started on that TEAM tier list, and a TEAM match-up thread. lol that will be an epic undertaking.

#12
Reizo said on May 27, 2012 at 7:10 p.m.

This is just getting stupid now, everyone has different lists and none of them include team synergy while marvel is build around it...

#13
reyray0709 said on May 27, 2012 at 7:18 p.m.

Morrigan - "IMDABES"

#14
OniBlanka said on May 27, 2012 at 7:20 p.m.

move phoenix way more to the left. switch c.viper with spencer and move zero below phoenix. perfect.

#15
iMTopTier said on May 27, 2012 at 7:21 p.m.

Hsien-Ko always at the bottom because nobody knows how to use her

#16
rogueish1 said on May 27, 2012 at 7:24 p.m.

I think its too close to call in a lot of places but

I think the following should be higher
-morrigan (think shes being underrated)
-spiderman (more potential)
-ammy
-rr
-phoenix wright

and the following should be lower
-skrull
-x23
-felicia

#17
UnTi said on May 27, 2012 at 7:26 p.m.

This is a "point" tierchart, not the Ten Commandments Stone of Marvel, in all its depth! (yeah, I'm being ironic)

To me it's really fun to see the top players’ opinions and how they differ from mine and, gentlemen, this is the goal of every tierlist/tierchart.

Complains without reasons are stupid, and nowadays they're getting more and more recurring.

#18
Anim8td_fan said on May 27, 2012 at 7:29 p.m.

What a disorganized mess.

#19
rogueish1 said on May 27, 2012 at 7:39 p.m.

@19 I agree with everything you said except it being a point tierchart I think what makes vergil so high is level 3 XF

#20
rogueish1 said on May 27, 2012 at 7:40 p.m.

and you cant even put phoenix on point or else shes doodoo tier

#21
Dragoomba said on May 27, 2012 at 7:43 p.m.

Finally a tier list where Skrull kind of makes sense.

#22
Arma said on May 27, 2012 at 7:44 p.m.

I barely play this game but keep considering starting; Skrull seems pretty cool but I never knew he was considering high or even high-ish. Can anyone fill me in why? I rarely see him used..

#23
Firebrand said on May 27, 2012 at 8:32 p.m.

>implying Chun-Li is better than me

#24
Ketchup17 said on May 27, 2012 at 8:37 p.m.

why do people put Arthur so low? He's better than people think he is

#25
Rahavic said on May 27, 2012 at 9:30 p.m.

I dont even play the character but its not possible for Frank West to be that low, sorry he's top 20 all day. In level 4 or higher he's top 10, so yeah that doesn't make much sense. Besides that I like what Yipes got here.

#26
Krownclown said on May 27, 2012 at 9:56 p.m.

Again, who cares? Every top player has posted one on Twitter.

Sentinel below Thor? That has to be a mistake.

#29
Shin_Akira said on May 27, 2012 at 10:22 p.m.

i think Frank west should be in like 3 different spots on this tier list. like lv 1 C lv 2-3 B and 4-5 like A

#30
gam3fr33k said on May 27, 2012 at 10:24 p.m.

Did he just pick a top 10 then randomize everyone else?

#31
KingAdon said on May 27, 2012 at 10:29 p.m.

Yipes even said that he's waiting on a team tier list. Not sure if this means he's working on one or not.

#32
MadnessFamilyguile said on May 27, 2012 at 10:44 p.m.

This is really close.I don't see how ghostrider is really that bad...i really don't. And i don't see how ammy is so high...she's only good on paper and someone NOT getting destroyed for picking her is like 1-100, better chance of winning with people far below her.

Trish is REALLY well rounded imo, should be farther right.Zero is definitely best character in the game, bang on.hsienko is definitely the worse, bang on. List is damn close

#33
Brotagonist said on May 27, 2012 at 10:52 p.m.

I think this is probably the most accurate tier list I've seen for this game aside from two things; I think Frank should be much higher, but further toward the has faults side and I also believe that Phoenix should be much more toward the has faults side, but her placement in the tiers is pretty spot-on.

#34
FADCTAUNT said on May 27, 2012 at 11:04 p.m.

Yipes already said this is a solo list, so that's why Sent is so low. Come on he's a pretty bad character on his own, he is rated highly because of his assist and not a whole lot else.

#35
FADCTAUNT said on May 27, 2012 at 11:05 p.m.

and agree Frank should be higher, maybe people should start noting if the Frank they are talking about is level 1 or when levelled up to 4?

#36
HyperViperNZ said on May 27, 2012 at 11:16 p.m.

Is this list based on solo without assists? If so then zero and vergil are too high since they depend on assists to do any major damage.

#37
hellno650 said on May 27, 2012 at 11:33 p.m.

Probably the most accurate tier list so far. just a little confused with sent being so low. he at least has a great assist.

#38
Rahavic said on May 28, 2012 at 12:19 a.m.

This can't be based on solo, if you believe that your nuts. Phoenix top 5 and Haggar up there too? Haggar without assists has more 10-0 matchups than any character in fighting game history.

#39
Fraudcityhero said on May 28, 2012 at 1:38 a.m.

Rahavic get out of here, Zero NUMBER 1!!!!!!!!! Hagger is a boss

JiCi said on May 28, 2012 at 6:50 a.m.

I'm sorry, but after seeing matches from Japanese pro players who picked the most random teams ever, I'm calling tier lists pointless, and not just for UMvC3.

For instance, Justin Wong literally turned Makoto in SSFIV from a low-tier into a hier-tier character.

Look, if someone comes out and beat everyone with a Darkstalkers team, using Hsien-Ko as the lead, then I'm not calling her low-tier. Same goes for having an Avengers team and having Iron Man as the lead.

#45
rvnender said on May 28, 2012 at 7:29 a.m.

Jwong has done nothing for makoto other than go to evo and use all of vryu's tech.

#46
Azuregum said on May 28, 2012 at 9:38 a.m.

Makoto was never low tier. She's always had too much damage potential to be low tier.

#47
pandaman64 said on May 28, 2012 at 9:49 a.m.

Frank west isn't really that good, even after leveled.

Level 1 frank is bottom 5 in the game.

level 2 is bottom 10.

Level 3, even tho he gets better, is WAY too fair to be any good. Not as good as stuff like magnus or nova.

Level 4, is where frank BEGINS to become really playable. However, he's still not really any better than any of the high tier characters.

One point of annoyance, frank's combos with meter aren't really that damaging, because of how many hits his combos are before landing super. It's a shame, because the guy does 600k+ without meter effortlessly, but then can't manage to break 750k midscreen. ugh.

Another issue is how easy the guy is to pushblock out. The roll helps, but it's not enough.

#48
TheGuardian07 said on May 28, 2012 at 9:52 a.m.

Serious question: Could someone explain why Iron Fist is considered well-rounded? Justin is the only one who has him on the left side at all. I never really see him played, and when I do, he always gets bodied.

@48 The two do not play the same in no way shape or form and Wong. Vryu is good with mak, wong was good with mak DONE.
@49 Yeah Vanilla mak was low tier focus attack negated a ton of her offense without option selects if you dont know that then its because you never mained her because winning with vanilla mak.
@51 LOL

Props to Yipes for actually understanding how the axes work (finally), and not lying about his main being top tier like Noel Brown did.

Kid_Kuma said on May 28, 2012 at 1:48 p.m.

I completely agree with this list, except task I think should be higher. Besides Task, I think this list might actually be the first perfect tiers list for UMvC3.

#54
MadnessFamilyguile said on May 28, 2012 at 1:48 p.m.

actually,modok should be around s-tier but far on the left

#55
THE_GODDAMN_MASTER said on May 28, 2012 at 4:54 p.m.

Chun-Li better than Spiderman.
Yup. Nothing to do here...

#57
MetroCityPub said on May 28, 2012 at 7:12 p.m.

@47

And here comes the obligatory "tiers are pointless" statement which has got to be the most tired argument ever. Tiers map out the picture of how easy it is to win with a character given similar-skilled players. Just because someone beasted with a low-tier character does not mean tiers are pointless and every character has an equal chance because they don't.

That still doesn't change the fact that the character used has worse tools, damage output, mix-up potential etc. This just means the person was able to win with a blunt knife instead of a sharp one (That Justin Wong example is garbage by the way, in what way did he )

#58
MetroCityPub said on May 28, 2012 at 7:22 p.m.

I doubt Justin Wong was able to make Makoto into a decent character just by winning with her. Did he change her normals and her hitbox just by beating a couple of people? Makoto was still garbage before AE and it took a couple of changes to make her deadly.

A crappy character is a crappy character unless someone finds that the character has an advantage in one aspect over many others. Tiers say something. If someone wins with a crappy team, that just means they more skilled...but that doesn't change their relative tier standing.

#59
TheGuardian07 said on May 28, 2012 at 8:15 p.m.

Those TACs were too awesome. I'd be honored if I got OCV'd by a MODOK like that.

Its a Marvel gay list??

#61
TheDemoman said on November 28, 2012 at 8:03 p.m.

Dang those white boys are high tier.

But really, people think Dante is still A-S Tier. His damage is mediocre at best even with combo extension assists and bold cancels out the butt.

Someone like Magneto has better mobility and more damaging bnb's without assists. Especially with the S-Rom.
