EventHubs 2015 top 50 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players 1-10 - photo finish at the end for the Marvel gods

We're closing out our 2015 top 50 list for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tonight.


It's been a fun year for UMvC3, with some surprises in the scene and exceptional matches, but as the curtain falls on the calendar year, we asked top players and pundits to weigh in on who the best of the best were.

The resulted in a photo finish — as there was a .05 difference between our first and second place spots — which is the closest finish we've ever had for the top spot in our history of doing player lists.

The top 10 is packed with EVO winners and tournament champions. You can find the entire breakdown below, along with links to our previous entries.

Rules and notes for panel members


We sent panel members an initial list of players, and they could nominate three additional people. Players who received two nominations were added to the final ballots.

We told the panel that their scores should take into account their opinion of each player's overall skill and their performance in 2015.

The panel was not allowed to vote for the following:
- Themselves.
- Close relatives.
- Players on their direct team/sponsor.
