Happy birthday? Nope! Merry Christmas! - one combo wipes out an entire team of three in this UMvC3 tournament clip

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • August 19, 2014 at 8:33 p.m. PDT

In a recent event streamed on the Air Juggle Twitch channel, an awesome moment was captured during the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament.

DCB|4th Star went up against Chris D in what appeared to be a one sided fight in favor of the latter. Chris D's Chris Redfield knocked out 4th Star's Dormammu, and things were looking just as bleak for his Dr. Doom. That's when Vergil appeared...

Feeling himself just a little too much, Chris D went for a Team Hyper Combo, and instead of dealing massive damage on 4th Star's Vergil, got caught in the Spiral Swords.

It looks like Christmas came early for the this Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 player.

Check out the footage below.

Talk about a huge choke. Proper SS defense is jumping. The fear of XF2 Vergil is real in this vid. That's the only reason I can imagine the guy tried to counter SS in this way.

Team Hyper Combos. It's a mechanic where each of your team simultaneously uses a Hyper(determined by assist).

Was more impressed with the Chris play. Not to be a negative Nancy but nowadays anything involving Vergil and Doom is starting to become too common and boring.

This is why I stopped playing Marvel permanently. Same generic teams online with little to no creativity.

And when you do see an underused character like Jill or Wright, Doom and/or Vergil is slapped on the team for assist/anchor.

It's a shame really. I had so many nice times playing Marvel.

HyperViperNZ said on August 20, 2014 at 12:29 a.m.

Yep, agreed.
The game was at it's most fun back when it first came out.
Back when people experimented with characters and used a variety.
Now all wee see are foot dives and rapid swords.

Do you guys SERIOUSLY have to steal EVERYTHING from Kappa?

Jumping is the WORST way to block spiral swords, the SS' autoblock doesn't work when you're jumping. Either crouch block or super jump and take your time high in the air, since Chris can't do this last one he should've just blocked.

I agree. His Chris was amazing. The whole combo finishing off the team, cool, but the taunt and dance after was not necessary. Showing your underwear after a win like that... troll.

I think the guy eating fries on the side agrees...

I have to agree with everyone, the Chris combo was great but its spoiled by the...surprise Vergildoom Merry Christmas. It was great but we've seen so much Top Tier characters.

Lets mix it up, Look up some odd ball characters online and post your discoveries EH. That is one great way to bring Marvel back to life. If you keep showcasing the same teams over and over, it gets boring. I don't care If its competitive. Its gotta be fun too. Just saying.
