During the EdmontonGamers stream, AGE|Chris G and Moons did a few matches against each other in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that has now been uploaded onto YouTube.

Up first is a match where Chris G uses his Hawkeye, Firebrand and Ryu team facing off against Moons' team of Shuma-Gorath, Spencer and Dr. Doom. After the jump is another set of matches where Chris G goes back to his Morrigan, Vergil, Doom team.

PR Balrog discusses adjustments he made against ChrisG at SCR, anti-Phoenix strategies

PR Balrog discusses adjustments he made against ChrisG at SCR, anti-Phoenix strategies Recapping the events at SoCal Regionals 2013, Evil Geniuses' Eduardo "PR Balrog" Perez went into detail about the exhibition and grand finals match up he had against AGE's ChrisG in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Perez discusses the adjustments he made in that set, and also talks about some anti-Phoenix approaches he's using. Here's a snip from the write up.

Vandole: After your close first to 10 with Chris G exhibition match you proceeded to beat him 3-1 in grand finals. What mental changes did you make that night allowing you to net such a decisive win?

PR Balrog: I knew that my problem against Chris was my execution so fixing that was the key. I think that my play style is really hard for him to deal with because of the fact that Dr. Dooms beam assist lets me do whatever I want with wolverine, also I know how to deal against the bullet hell that he throws at his opponents so I think he was a little bit surprised on how patient I was since I’m known to be a player with no patience player.

Vandole: You did very well against your ex roommate coL|Filipino Champ! Your anti-phoenix tech seems to be just snap Jean in until she is dead. Why isn’t snapping in a strong anchor such as Vergil and strider more prevalent in Marvel? What situations do you personally feel it should be used in?

PR Balrog: I think because the fact that blocking Phoenix is actually ten times harder than blocking Vergil in the incoming mix up is what makes me snap her in more than anyone in the game. I feel that I can deal with Vergil since my other ex roommate Shady K uses him and he was the one that taught me Vergil and his randomness so I know what Vergil can or cannot do and Strider is just situational because it depends if I have X-Factor or not.

Justin Wong: X-23, Hawkeye, V. Joe & Skrull being slept on in UMvC3 - so much tech coming out for high tier, you're going to see best characters more

Justin Wong: X-23, Hawkeye, V. Joe & Skrull being slept on in UMvC3 - so much tech coming out for high tier, you're going to see best characters more Evil Geniuses' Justin Wong did a very insightful interview with his sponsor, where he talked about which characters he thinks are being slept on in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, specifically naming X-23, Hawkeye, Viewtiful Joe and Super-Skrull, among others.

Wong added that there's so much new technology coming out for the S-ranked fighters that it makes other characters not worth looking into, unless your a character loyalist. He added that he feels slowly but surely there will be more Vergils, Dooms, Zeros, Striders, Magnetos, and Morrigans coming up now.

Other topics covered include countering/avoiding Dr. Doom's Hidden Missile assist, TAC infinites and more. This is a really terrific interview, and if you're interested in high level UMvC3 play, I'd highly recommend checking it out. Here's a snip from the page.

Slackaholicus: Zero and Vergil have also been gaining popularity lately for character picks. Do you think we’ll continue to see them picked on so many teams? What other characters will we see as common picks?

JWong: I personally think Zero and Vergil are the top two characters in the game. Everyone will always have Vergil on the team just because he can always kill a team just like an X-Factor 3 Dark Phoenix. People are picking up Zero more now and being more consistent with lightning loops and mixups, so that’s something to be scared of in the future. Another common character that I can see people playing is definitely Doom. He is the king of TACS and building meter. The number one thing about Doom is that all three of his assists are pretty much top tier.

Usefulness of Crossover Counter, MrFlubbs' new Thor combo video, Magneto midscreen TAC infinite and more - Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

ReNiC has posted a quick video showing the usefulness of Crossover Counters in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

In the video, he states that he doesn't really know combos for the characters he shows. Someone who knows combos should be able to convert for some pretty high damage in most of the situations shown.

Connecting Spider-Man's Maximum Spider during a multi-hitting assist at the same time causes damage scaling and hit stun to be reset. The first part of the video shows how the basic combo works and the second part shows the actual glitch.
