Tiers for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 by the EventHubs community

Back in January of 2012, we asked the EventHubs community to assign a letter grade to each of the fighters in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Hundreds of votes were factored in to the rankings below, but some of the end tallies for letter grades people thought a character should be assigned were very close.

Tiers have been and will likely always be a hotly debated topic. Just because a character is a higher tier does not mean you should play them. You're best off picking characters you like because of how they play.

Also, new technology and team setups for characters are discovered all of the time, as such a character's letter grade could very well change in the future as more people learn the additional things they're capable of.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tiers
Dr. Doom, Spencer, Wesker, Zero
Akuma, C. Viper, Dante, Dormammu, Frank West, Hawkeye, Magneto, Phoenix, Strider, Taskmaster, Vergil, Wolverine
Amaterasu, Captain America, Deadpool, Felicia, Morrigan, Nova, Sentinel, Spider-Man, Storm, Super-Skrull, Trish, X-23
Chris Redfield, Dr. Strange, Firebrand, Haggar, Hulk, Jill, MODOK, Nemesis, Rocket Raccoon, Ryu, Viewtiful Joe
Arthur, Iron Man, She-Hulk, Thor
Chun-Li, Ghost Rider, Iron Fist, Tron Bonne, Shuma-Gorath
Hsien-Ko, Phoenix Wright

I go to check the stamina rating and see you guys added this already. Pretty cool. Obviously my opinion differs from the result of this public vote (though it would be rather self indulgent to run down the differences character by character), but it seems fairly accurate to the way I see it.

I do wonder if another poll will be help in the future; 6-8 months down the road or so.

Morrigan is A tier easily. Her keepaway game with the fly/unfly fireballs plus the ability that she can gain meter during the shadow super make her A tier. Otherwise I really like the fact that we actually have a somewhat accurate tier list now!

I'm not really a B, I just float between tiers.

Morrigan is B+ to me. Her keepaway game is only good with the right assists. Herself as a character isnt A tier.

Woooo Viper baby you way up there.

"Only good with the right assists" is irrelevant. The only assist she really needs is Doom's Hidden Missiles, which just puts another A+ character on your team. She's A+ because she's a bad matchup for basically everyone.

Viper's A+ too.

Tier list from the pros. Thought this might be useful to have here as well.

Chun is higher than a C! Same as Iron Fist?!?! NO! She-Hulk should be higher, maybe Tron And Viper is most definetly A+. My personal opinion.

i4ni_Reaver said on March 25, 2013 at 2:36 a.m.

Dormammu said on April 22, 2013 at 12:10 a.m.

I feel so bad for wesker. He's been kicked to like... B tier since his debut.

8589brian said on February 9, 2014 at 11:12 p.m.

I feel if Arthur had a dash move he would be much further up the list than he currently is.

Why is Vergil not S Tier?

This is very outdated.
