Wow she looks great, I guess they showed off bit more gameplay on Capcom-Unity stream last night as well and great sword attacks have infinite armor versus just against light attacks like Nemesis?

No info on release dates still correct? Still assuming Sigma/Panther next month, MH/Venom November and Winter/Widow December, though if they're showing MH now maybe she's October as well? I dunno.

In other news latest patch (1.07/Version N) for T7 just came out for consoles which has some Xiaoyu and Kazumi nerfs, some buffs for Lee, and whole bunch of big fixes.

ArcSys also came out and said BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle will be at NY Comic Con in about 3 weeks, so expect more gameplay footage then along with hopefully breakdown on mechanics. I've never been able to get into BB but between Marvel and DBFZ I'm cautiously excited for another tag/team game.

Huh interesting. Guess I'll go back through the Caps this weekend and see if I really can't get anything off a regular throw or I'm just missing something (probably the latter...).

Edit: He can't do anything off forward throw, can off back throw since that tosses up. Marvel can get stuff in corner but mid screen it tosses them full screen so maybe if your movement is good you can grab but mine ain't.

@hippie_genocide: Ah guess that makes sense. After throw doesn't seem like cr.LK works to pick people up like after a jHK spike so I assumed you couldn't, but seems like some moves are still specifically OTG moves and those work? Dunno what others are since Cap lost his, maybe Thanos HK since that's kind of like Doom sH from 3?

Back to research! Being able to do throwxxOTG tag for combo seems good.

@hippie_genocide: Yep it seems good, tried walking up and doing F+HP command normal few times in training and kept getting throw. That said I'm bad at F+Button versus LP+LK in any fighting game (definitely cursed a lot in Xrd early on trying to do throw and getting Faust overhead instead...) so dunno how often I'll actually get to use it in a real match.

I don't think you can combo off most throws normally but I saw on I think early Justin stream if you plink it with Tag you'll tag in then throw and can combo from that (depending on animation); I've been able to do it with command throws like Captain Marvel but not regular throws.

@hippie_genocide: I get same issue but on other hand trying to do LK HK with Cap I get LK+HK a lot so definitely doesn't require everything to be frame perfect, maybe tag has higher priority than storm for inputs? I think there's an option to map to 1 button but having 1 for flip/Cap Marvel special and 1 for dash is nice.

Whoops by sleep I meant play for an hour, seems like some of the stuff I was hoping would work does (Cap LP ShieldxxSwap, I press buttons or dash or command grab and if it doesn't work oh well Shield hits on way back hold that. Probably works better with Dante/Ultron who have better box jump H I think that Cap Marvel but Marvel has command grab and I'm bad so I dunno. Can't cancel flip into time stone unfortunately, that'd b fun) but didn't try if you could just press buttons for happy birthday instead, WHO KNOWS! Test for tomorrow, then figure out actual combos, then get wrecked online then story. Being able to swap stones without needing to back all the way out is really great as well.

I'm very happy right now. Now just need Viscant 2017 MvC:I champion and I'll be over the moon.

...huh. $30K prize pool with gimmicks? I... hmmm, OK sure. That's one way to squeeze something in for the year and prize pool is small enough not to get too annoyed by it, then I'd assume it gets proper integration with CPT next year.

Also AAHHHH MARVELS OUT! NEW MARVEL'S OUT! And time for bed for me then work THEN NEW MARVEL TEAM CAP/CAP LET GO!

PUT THEM IN THE BOX! Really hope that's not gear ability but likely will be. Like Sub looks like he has bit from all his MKX variations, Black Lightning coming free with Ultimate edition is nice as well. That super is pretty great.

And ChrisG takes it over RyanLV 3-1, hard to argue he's not the greatest UMvC3 over the years. EVO winner, multiple time Top 8 finalist, dominant for most of the game's lifespan. Hell of a way to close the book on it, I've never been a big Marvel player (bad online didn't help) but it's something I've looked forward to watching at almost every tournament it's been at since I started following the FGC in 2012ish; sad to see it go but excited to see what Infinite brings. One of the things I've loved about the game is the community around it, they've always felt the most dedicated and prideful and... rambunctious and exciting and were a huge reason why I fell in love with the game and fighting games in general. Seeing SF5 and Injustice 2 going to eSports route and losing some of that, I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm a bit worried for the Marvel community but we'll see how it goes.

This was written shortly before EVO 2017 but http://www.rigofu.com/hyperpedia/ is a great LONG write-up on history of MvC3 over the years. Looking forward to what Infinite brings and hope it can live up to the legacy!

RIP Marvel Vs Capcom 3 2011-2017.

Curleh Circuit Top 8 starting soon on https://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky and Injustice 2 Top 4 happening right now.

Brackets for Curleh has a few expected people (ChrisG trying to cement himself as the best Marvel 3 player of all time and RyanLV showing why he's in the conversation, Terry Bogard repping the online warriors and JoeyD for the midwest) and some more unexpected people (2013 EVO champ Flocker who's done not much since then, Priest rocking Modok, Angelic with Shuma, IHeartJustice with hypest team of Phoenix Wright/Captain America/Dr Strange). Should be a great sendoff!
