Filipino Champ starting his EVO training June 1st, 12-16 hours per day - plans to play Dormammu 99% of the time In the hopes of retaining his Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 championship from Evolution 2012, coL|Filipino Champ has stated on Twitter that he will start his official EVO training on June 1, 2013.

For the record I do actually LIKE @InjusticeGame but for now I am focusing on Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3! Evo Training starts June 1st! Dat 12-16 hr training day!

Back in April we did a quick interview with him, where FChamp noted that he will be playing Dormammu 99% of the time at this year's Evolution. Also he specifically mentioned that he does not care about anything but winning again as he's the defending champion.

Lastly, during the interview he gave a quick rundown of what his training regimen will be.

I'll resume my "EVO training" 6 weeks before EVO that consists of 10-12 hours of gameplay and 2-4 hours of watching videos of my mistakes or losses.

You can check out the full interview here, if you missed it.

Capcom's Christian Svensson stepped in to address this matter and stated that there are no plans to update UMvC3 in any way at this time. Sven goes on to say that he was unaware of the SSF4 AE v2012 slowdown but will try to have the team look into it.

Bs957: I know you guys must likley are not going to patch Umvc3. But will you patch the slowdown that apparently happens in SSF4 AE v2012 or UMvC3.

Svensson: Sorry guys but there are no plans for updates of any kind to UMvC3 at this time. As for SSF4 AE v2012, I'm not aware of any slowdown issues on any platform but I'll share the request with the team. Not sure if there's something that can be done for the next product update.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Combo Roundup featuring Nemesis, Wesker, Deadpool and Phoenix

We have some new combo videos from Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 featuring some slightly uncommon picks. While Wesker didn't use to be uncommon, he isn't seen much nowadays, and I think it would be hard to make an argument that Nemesis and Deadpool show up often in tournaments. As for Phoenix, we have a quick 100% combo against Thor with her — And no, while it does spend as much meter, that's not Dark Phoenix.

We'll start you off with the Nemesis combo video, courtesy of residentevilrulz.

Justin Wong's Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tier list - part 1

Justin Wong's Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tier list - part 1 EG|Justin Wong has put together a new tier list for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and we've posted part 1 of it, covering the Capcom side of the cast, here on EventHubs.

Unlike more traditional tier lists, Justin takes things a few steps further, offering pros and cons for each fighter in addition to a letter grade. He also discusses partners and which positions on a team he feels each fighter is strong at. Here's a little blurb to get you started.

Hey guys, this time this tier list will consist of the cast in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Now before I start I just want to say this is my opinion on all these characters and anyone can disagree or agree.

In the partner section, the people listed there can be an assist that would be helpful or they can use the assist to help their game. For example: Wolverine loves Tatsu assist but Akuma loves Dr. Doom assist. You might see a lot of Doctor Dooms, Vergils in those sections, just a heads up. =p

I will have a grade system running from S+, S, S-, A+, A, A- B+, B, B-, C+ C, C- and D with S+ being highest and D being lowest.

You can check out, part 1 here and stay tuned to the front page for part 2, which will cover the entire Marvel side of the cast.

You can find a full archive of EG|Justin Wong's columns here on EventHubs, and you can view his Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 tier list that was posted a little ways back.
