It’s been awhile since our last segment on Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 suggested balance changes, but we’re back! This time we have balance changes for fan-favorite characters including Dante, Magneto, and Firebrand. Special thanks to ApologyMan for coming by and giving us some input on changes for Firebrand, Skrull, and Frank West! Tweet me and let me know what you guys think of our changes @shady_k!
Don’t forget: When’s Marvel Weekly tomorrow! As an incentive to get a bigger UMvC3 player turnout, FGTVLive will give away a Madcatz Arcade Fightstick Pro (Xbox 360) to the highest placing non-FGTV member if we can get at least 30 entries into the tournament! Come out and stop FGTV from winning another When’s Marvel Weekly!
We’ll be hosting a special When’s Marvel Weekly, pre-NCR edition this Thursday at 8:00 PM PST and will feature many NCR-attending top players, including EG. Justin Wong, MCZ. Xian, Neo, omgitzandre, XRay, Kbeast, Rattana, Noel Brown, and Darryn! This event is sponsored by: FGTVLive, Soundblaster, Capsule Entertainment, Console Combat, and TwitchTV.
This is a public event, so everyone is welcome! We’ll be setting up early, so if you’re in the area and would like to get some practice in for NCR, we’ll be there at around 5:30 PM.
I have some time on my hands and just wanted to help fill up our blog content a bit, so in this piece I’ll be answering a couple questions I get asked a lot by our stream viewers at www.twitch.tv/fgtvlive. This was a lot longer than I expected, so sorry in advance! Feel free to leave a comment (or berate my opinions) below or tweet me at www.twitter.com/shady_k!
For part 3 of our suggested balance changes to Capcom’s Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, we had a lengthy debate about a few of the dominant characters (Doctor Doom, Zero, Spencer) as well as strengthened a few of the underused characters. Special thanks to jason “GCYoshi” Wang for his contribution to the Chris Redfield segment!

As usual, the two events will be streamed at http://www.twitch.tv/fgtvlive.
For part 2 of our UMvC3 balance suggestions, we went over some universal system changes that would eliminate some bugs that cause unintended gameplay mechanics as well as make the game more enjoyable at high level. We also went over several fan-favorite characters and gave them buffs that would make them a little more playable, while trying not to make them over-powered.
So we invited Andry “Magus1234″ Kane over to discuss with Filipino Champ and ShadyK what balance changes we could come up with that would make Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 a bit more balanced while remaining entertaining. This is part 1 of an on-going series that will continue throughout this month. Here are the first 10 characters and a YouTube video to go with it.
