Experimental UMvC3 event: Ratio competition feat Filipino Champ, CJ Showstopper, GC Yoshi, Taekua & more

FGTVLive is hosting an experimental event for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 today, for their When's Marvel Weekly.

This is a ratio event, and all of the characters have an assigned value, and your team cannot exceed a max of 10. Here's the chart they're working off of.

For example, a team of Morrigan (6), Dr. Doom (6), Strider (5) wouldn't be acceptable, as the total points would come out to 17, but a team composed of Haggar (4), Arthur (2), Rocket Raccoon (4) would be OK, because it equals out to ten.

You can find the live stream below featuring RG|Filipino Champ, CJ Showstopper, GC Yoshi, EM|Taekua and more, and make sure you hop in and let us know what you think of the format in the comments.

Get fingered! High level Phoenix Wright players square off in long set, Uglywhen vs. WolfStreet

Phoenix Wright is widely regarded as one of the worst characters in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, so it's not every day you get to see two of the best players with him put the character to use.

Uglywhen and WolfStreet squared off in a long set of matches, with the former player using Spencer, Phoenix Wright, Wesker and the latter gamer using a squad of Trish, Phoenix Wright, Rocket Raccoon.

There's quite a bit of crazy here featuring the Ace Attorney, so if you want to get your Phoenix fix, and watch him throw his finger around, hit the jump to check out the videos.

Moons: People aren't playing UMvC3 as much because the game has no future, and its age is a contributing factor

EventHubs correspondent, Jason24cf, recently had the chance to speak with a big fan favorite in the community, Angel Gonzalez, better known as TA|Moons.

Gonzalez was asked what he thought the factors were for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's decline in popularity, as it's not doing as well as it once did at weeklies, and other events.

"The game is old, a lot of people still think of it as a relatively new game, but it's already three-years-old," said Gonzalez.

Age wasn't the only thing though that's a contributing factor to Marvel's decline, according to Moons.

"There's no future, I think is the reason a lot people don't play it," Gonzalez continued, "It's not like SSF4 AE v2012, where you have Ultra Street Fighter 4 coming out, that's a reason to play that game."

As far as why the scene has dropped at Next Level Battle Circuit, Moons felt that travel time was also a contributor.

"A lot of the main UMvC3 players [live far away]," said Gonzalez, noting he lives an hour and a half away from The Next Level in Brooklyn, NY.

You can find the full interview with TA|Moons after the jump, where he also comments on the New York scene after ChrisG's departure, what the community could do to build UMvC3 back up and more.

Full-screen, touch of death, and one fireball is all it takes to start: NYChrisG shows 1.1 million damage combo using Morrigan's Soul Fist loop

GG|NYChrisG recently uploaded an Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 combo clip that features Morrigan dealing a ton of damage with one fairly simple combo.

Using a five reps of her fly/unfly Soul Fist projectile loop, Morrigan can continuously juggle an opponent in the air, if they get caught with the fireball while jumping. This can lead to a full-screen combo that deals 1.1 million damage and uses 4 stocks of meter.

Because of the damage output of this particular combo, it can fully K.O. everyone on the roster except for She-Hulk, Nemesis, Haggar, Hulk, Tron, and Thor. Word to the wise: Do not jump in front of Morrigan when she's sitting on a few bars of meter.

Check out NYChrisG's full-screen Morrigan combo after the break.

Tiers for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 launched, uses brand new scoring system

We've launched the long-awaited tiers for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 today on EventHubs.

This uses a completely different scoring system than our users might be used to, as assists play such a heavy factor in match ups — we're not using the match up system for tiers for UMvC3.

To explain a little further, a character like Frank West's match ups can change dramatically depending on which assist he has backing him, and with 3 assists per character, the complexity of a match up system for games with assists would quickly grow into something very unwieldy.

Instead, we have four ways you can score the characters. To see the rundown, continue reading by clicking the Read more link below.

Capcom's Dawgtanian: There's no reason why Disney's disinterest would mean the end of all Marvel games with Capcom

While this is definitely not a guarantee that we'll ever see the Marvel vs. Capcom series resurface, Capcom's David "Dawgtanian" Hinds was asked by Metro if Disney's current disinterest in home console games would mean the end of the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise.

"I don't want to say no, definitely not," said Hinds, "but there's no reason as to why that's the end of all Marvel games with Capcom."

Before people get their hopes up too much, Hinds added that he's currently not involved in those meetings and "we'll just have to wait and see I guess," in regards to what turns up in the future.

Hinds was also asked about Ultra Street Fighter 4, specifically if this is the last title update that we'll see for this entry in the series.

"All I can do is say, as myself and not officially as Capcom, 'Never say never'. I know that sounds really annoying to say that, but I'm not the decision maker on this," he noted.

"I think it's just one of those things where we’ll adapt to what the fans want," said Hinds.

Story continues after the break.
