EventHubs lists top 50 current Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players, #20 - #11 - voice your opinions on Twitter: #UMvC3rank

Posted by DreamKing23

The tournament circuit is currently littered with amazing players from all walks of life, spanning from one fighting game to another. We decided to take a closer look at the incredible talent that is the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 scene.

The EventHubs team came together and voted on each player based on tournament results, and player skill across the globe. The players listed here have performed at big events consistently, and players who haven't traveled much outside of their region were not included because it's a bit too difficult to judge them based on their performances only in the local area.

We gave each player a score between 1 - 10, then averaged all of the numbers together. Today we have player #20 - player #11 listed. Be sure to check out which players ranked #50 - 41, #40 - #31, and #30 - #21.

If you'd like to join the discussion, or want to tear our heads off for our choices, you can voice your opinions about our list on Twitter using the hashtag "#UMvC3rank." You can also share your thoughts in our comments section, as usual.

The top 10 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players will be revealed this Friday.

Hit the jump to check it out.

Gotomaster said on November 6, 2013 at 4:04 p.m.

This is making me think, will Eventhubs do a similar list, but with the top 50 Ae players instead?

#11
ExecutiveDave said on November 6, 2013 at 4:05 p.m.

Kusoru shouldn't be anywhere near top 50

#18
Simeon said on November 6, 2013 at 4:21 p.m.

Fanatiq shouldn't be there.

#19
ShadowGeno said on November 6, 2013 at 4:24 p.m.

MarlinPie looks so damn happy.

Excellent track record in exhibitions and money matches.

This list is probably the biggest heap of cow manure I have ever read like..ever. And that's me putting it nicely.

#29
perfume said on November 6, 2013 at 4:54 p.m.

How is Kane better than MARLINPIE????!!

#30
subjectivve said on November 6, 2013 at 5:02 p.m.

Based on pure major tournament results from the entire game's lifespan, Tokido is the highest ranked Japanese UMVC3 player.

#31
dOugiieOVRKLL said on November 6, 2013 at 5:04 p.m.

Zak Bennett vs Cloud 805
-Zak has 4 top 3 placings in his accomplishments
-Cloud didn't break 4th outside of a local
-Zak got 3rd AT SHADOWLOO SHOWDOWN
-Cloud got 7th at a QUALIFIER for Shadowloo Shoudown
..but Cloud is better LMFAOOOOOOOOO
you right.

#32
FlexingBum said on November 6, 2013 at 5:04 p.m.

Making a top 50 of UMVC3 players doesn't make any sense at all really. The game is random enough that almost anyone can take anyone out. AE i can see, but UMVC3 is just a big no.

#33
XxkakashixX53 said on November 6, 2013 at 5:09 p.m.

You have no idea what you're talking about.

#34
kappademon said on November 6, 2013 at 5:17 p.m.

EH you failed! You're supposed to spread out your trolls, not put them all into 11-20 lol.

But seriously though, I was excited for this list and the next one at first but at this point, this is way too trolly. I don't even care anymore lol.

#35
NoizyChild said on November 6, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.

Spoken like someone that has never played the game.

#36
Coocoopaper said on November 6, 2013 at 5:40 p.m.

LMAO MarlinPie

Stay free Eventscrubs

#37
Clamper said on November 6, 2013 at 5:47 p.m.

Kane Blue River 11º best Marvel player in the world, above Marlin Pie ...

IM OUT.

#38
Strider_Hien said on November 6, 2013 at 6:18 p.m.

Based Kusoru.Kreygasm....

Seriously,though.....Nice freaking pic! And people really need to stop saying this game is random.Have you looked at tourney results?!?!?!?

Jesus....X_X

Just like this:

Kusuro hit and run. We have no chance for revenge.

#41
Ryujin said on November 6, 2013 at 6:24 p.m.

Actually, KBR can defeat Marlin:

#42
Clamper said on November 6, 2013 at 6:36 p.m.

Yes, i saw this match at the time. However a single ft3 tournament match doesn't mean anything regarding who's the best player. Marlin Pie has a much much better history in UMVC3 than KBR. And also i'd bet every cent on him in a ft50.

#43
Dbarcelona said on November 6, 2013 at 6:45 p.m.

So can CJ whats your point

#44
BlackMasamune said on November 6, 2013 at 7:50 p.m.

Complain all you want, y'all will keep clicking on the troll bait.

#45
canofsteel said on November 6, 2013 at 8:06 p.m.

Fanatiq at #17 when Bee is #42 after Fanatiq DODGED money matches with Bee to play more LEAGUE OF LEGENDS

yeah lets REWARD A LEAGUE OF LEGENDS player over a BETTER, more dedicated marvel player like Bee.

This list is trash and it's hard to take eventhubs seriously.

Especially after you guys ran TWO articles about Fanatiq saying he was gonna quit League of Legends and that we would see the best Fanatiq EVER at evo 2013. Then he got eliminated early lololol

Eventhubs = Fanatiq butt kissers, but too bad Fanatiq is now the MOST ACTIVE ZED player in the world.

Wanna get on eventhubs top 20 list? Do some trash interviews where you lie your way out, then go play more league of legends.

#46
EnsignHiro said on November 6, 2013 at 9:39 p.m.

Why is fanatiq higher then ray ray? Im not hating im being serious isnt ray ray stronger now?

#47
DimmuMaiden said on November 6, 2013 at 9:51 p.m.

LOL Kusoru that high?

#48
DimmuMaiden said on November 6, 2013 at 9:52 p.m.

Don't worry, ray ray hasn't been revealed in this list yet, he is probably gonna be on top 10.

#49
Stef_Science said on November 6, 2013 at 10:45 p.m.

So,EH's doesn't know Cloud or Kusoru's real names then? Mysterious......

#50
MCHAWKING said on November 6, 2013 at 11:01 p.m.

lol Cloud 805 isn't a top 50 marvel player, let alone a top 20. That's like saying flash metroid is a top 20 SF4 player cuz he got top 8 at evo once.

#51
Jalenp69 said on November 6, 2013 at 11:51 p.m.

The entire list to me has been pretty meh. I agree that'll probably be the top 10 and will be the only ones that are accurate to me.

Imo it should be

1. ChrisG
2. Flocker
3. FChamp
4. Justin Wong
5. PR Balrog
6. Neo
7. Angelic
8. Nemo
9. Ray Ray
10. Yipes

Also what's really messed up is this list clearly forgetting people like CJ Showstopper. He's not on 50-11 and we know he won't make it in top 10 over these guys even though with confidence I'd say he's better than 15-20 of the people currently on this list. And another point I don't like is placing players high based on their past skill. Players like Kusoru, Combofiend, MarlinPie, Fanatiq. At one point yeah they were really good players but they ventured off into life and other things and they definitely aren't at the level they once were.

#52
datagram said on November 7, 2013 at 2:25 a.m.

Edit: Nevermind

#53
xBMxSage said on November 7, 2013 at 3:31 a.m.

The only thing I'd really disagree with on this portion is Fanatiq. Top 30 makes sense but not top 20.

#54
SsjBizzle said on November 7, 2013 at 4:09 a.m.

Fanatiq and KBR need to be a bit lower. The rest is somewhat legit. Marlin hasn't been really doing/playing much lately either.

I would have put Ram at the 11th spot or something

#55
kirijoestar said on November 7, 2013 at 4:39 a.m.

And Masta CJ?

#56
NyuBomber said on November 7, 2013 at 4:45 a.m.

I love KBR but I don't know about 11th place.

BUT, this ultimately isn't *that* big a deal, so it's cool.

#57
orphen446 said on November 7, 2013 at 5:49 a.m.

Cloud respectfully... is way too high on this list.

#58
ShakeTheWorm said on November 7, 2013 at 7:06 a.m.

You're wrong on Zak Bennett accomplishments, it's something more like :
-Styled on Angelic at Curleh Mustash West Coast Edition #1
-One of the only Firebrand player
-Seen on FGTV
-Did a combo or two on Broken Tier YouTube channel

#59
BossDynamite said on November 7, 2013 at 8:10 a.m.

this list is so flawed. smh.

#60
bahamutknightzero said on November 7, 2013 at 8:51 a.m.

Makes me wonder what was the ranking rules here. Zak, Cloud, Kusoru, Xian all ranked way too high.

#61
vicko said on November 7, 2013 at 8:53 a.m.

Marlinpie also got 1st at Curley Mustache 2.

#62
Madmax77 said on November 7, 2013 at 10:14 a.m.

MarlinPie on this page ? why not in the next one ?
he deserves completely to be in #10 to #1 right ?

#63
EnsignHiro said on November 7, 2013 at 12:57 p.m.

Oh ok. Coulda sworn they listed ray ray already

#64
BaroqueObama said on November 7, 2013 at 1:15 p.m.

Y'all should actually play against Cloud before saying he's not top 50 or not even top 20. He's very seriously one of the best players of this game, just only got into the limelight recently.

#65
mugeninfinity said on November 7, 2013 at 1:42 p.m.

LOL this list....oy... '-______-

#66
DevilMaySpy said on November 8, 2013 at 6:15 a.m.

People saying MarllinPie is washed up; are you forgetting he just placed Top 8 at TFC 2 months ago with little to no practice?

#67
SendTriumph2Evo said on November 8, 2013 at 4:08 p.m.

Sorry, but this list is foolish and flawed based on its own criteria. if you discounting "local players" how is GreenAce on this list. there are ppl in th e top 20 who have fewer accolades than some players 20-11. a lot of this is opinion. just admit it.

#68
SendTriumph2Evo said on November 8, 2013 at 4:26 p.m.

Kosuro....maybe, but cloud 805 and fanatiq should not be in top 20. Cloud is having a good SEASON. if this was taken last year, Infrit would be top 5. he had the most #1's most runback points and lets not forget we went all the way to grand finals in evo IN WINNERS. yet somehow he's not top 20????

#69
SendTriumph2Evo said on November 8, 2013 at 4:28 p.m.

the list clearly says "CURRENT" so how does this criteria justify Fanatiq being top 20?

#70
