Another big list of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 changes We've ran quite a number of stories on change lists in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but Dahbomb on NeoGAF has put together the biggest list of changes I've seen so far for the game. It covers most of the cast and has a really nice breakdown of the balance tweaks Capcom has done.

Here's a snip.
+ Recovery on air and ground Hopscotches reduced
+ Recovery on air and ground Peakaboo reduced
+ Peakaboo assist comes out faster
+ Low Voltage projectiles have faster start ups

While Trish was considered by many to be a very strong character in MVC3, she was not very popular in tournaments due to dominance of rushdown style of play. With general nerfs to many rushdown characters and style of play, zoning seems to be stronger in UMVC3 And with that Trish appears to be an extremely powerful character in the new meta-game. With buffs to her specials, she should be very close to a dominant character in the game. Expect her to move up a few spots.

Tron Bonne
- Tron Gustaff Fire assist has been nerfed, a bigger hittable box
- Tron's j.H knocks away making it difficult to hit confirm into a combo
+ Trons Bonne Strike has quicker recovery
+ Servebot projectiles come out faster (?)

Some of the most questionable changes in the game regarding nerfs were made to Tron. Already in the Middle tier as far as point ability was concerned, Tron was competitive mostly due to her godly assist. Now it's nerfed and punishable, causing Tron to drop in usability. Much like Haggar, there are no substantial buffs to her point game meaning she has essentially dropped a tier at least. Much like Haggar, most people are a bit disappointed by this unless more info pops up about her point game.
