Everyone here is tsundere for mahvel.

y'all talk shit and put down the regular streams all year.

yet every EVO you're right there at the edge of your seat wailing like a DOA-Fan-Whose-$300-Maria-Rose-Figurine-is-being-brought-in-by-UPS-this-very-moment giving it the top views for the night and once again hoping, crossing your fingers that Chris "always a bridesmaid" G finally pops that Evo cherry.

- Waited until Marvel was over to return to the ball-room from Guilty Gear +R casuals at Evo 2014
- Still haven't watched a replay of it

I'm good, thanks

LMFAO

At the same time, I'm the guy who just wanted to watch the world burn aka see Smash get the highest numbers/put up the record viewerships first just for all the reactions in the EVO threads. :p

You're something special.

....you should watch it though

All 2nd Impact OST

I should have tried to set some stipulations like 1 track per game, etc x.x that being said, holy shit I forgot how good 2I's ost is... Alex's theme there is even better than his 3s one.

So not at all seeing how most DOA fans like the girls with more assets :p

Wonder why Melee competitors don't like to go to FGC events, while Smash 4 people do.

i assume there's just less overlap in terms of players as melee is a long established thing so less fg dudes would be competing in that vs. smash 4's newness bringing in more dudes

I'd probably post them anyway to make a point ;P but yeah 2I ost blows 3s out of the water, with the exception of Ibuki's track which I like better, and Akuma's track which is bad in 2I. That said there's way too many in capcom fighters alone. Making top 20, let alone ranked would be hard

Lol yeah I still haven't watched all of Marvel top 8 from Evo 2014. I caught bits and pieces but wasn't that interested.

No. The story of Marvel 3 at Evo is Justin Wong saving it.

top 5 marvel at evo 2014 was pretty good, but mostly because fchamp and justin were super on point and you could clearly see how the high level game actually functioned instead of a vomit stew of slop, shitty mashing and lame xf comebacks

honestly at this point i've stopped watching marvel too despite loving it to death simply because of how absolutely fucking boring it is to see dudes just go through the motions at mid/high level play when top level play has some seriously interesting aspects to it
but you basically never get to see it until the parade of real majors because the only dudes who really play at that level are miniscule

edit:
more important than all of this stupid shit about how marvel sucks or whatever is that opm is getting an anime

I would say greater overlap with the rest of the FGC for Smash 4 due to being new, which is definitely part of it, but...tournaments like CEO that actually reach out to the community draw big numbers too.

Edit: real question is why are GGXrd and Marvel so close

Some combination of this is where I'm at with Marvel. Not really a Wong fanboy so I can't even really take comfort in knowing it let Wong run through to the top easier.

Yeah same here.

People say ChrisG killed marvel at next level and all that but he honestly kept it alive. As soon as he left, no one had a reason to go anymore.

There was nothing "easy" about Justin's run to the top. Justin saved up a strategy for 10 months just so he can beat ChrisG at EVO in a clutch situation. That is dedication.

nah man, it was easy for justin to just pull wins straight out of the deepest, darkest regions of his ass against fchamp
especially that last game, oh boy was it ez pz

I left the ballroom when Marvel Top 8 started last year. I have zero regrets about that.

Anybody else not feeling WNF anymore if at all? Miss the old WNF. Watson needs to hurry up and get himself a venue and bring back the glory.

I mean, it's not easy, but it's easier when your hitting your stride as the best player stopped caring about the game months upon months ago.

Seeing Chris G go in and out of being motivated and then petering off permanently was depressing to watch in general TBH.

A player who is not motivated to win probably shouldn't be winning over someone who is actually motivated to win.

Besides Justin already won over "motivated" ChrisG at EVO 2013 in that epic game.

Marvel doesn't begin and end with ChrisG. There will be someone else who dominates and is in the running for EVO. Maybe Kosmos is the new ChrisG, he is on a tear lately.
 
Watching Chris G pretty much dominate a game for nearly 2 years straight was really exciting to watch for me because the last time something like that happened was mvc2 with Justin. Justin did dominate for much longer but that was a different time, a time where games evolved much slower and even big Justin fans(like james chen) compared Chris G's dominance to Justin's mvc2 run. Seeing him lose interest and not caring anymore was sad to see.

Chris G is more than just Marvel. He just makes Marvel bigger than it really is. Plays and is good at a lot of games while saying and doing things to entertain the masses.

Too few give Chris G credit for being a multi game player. He's like Tokido and Justin and Ryan Hart. Not a single game specialist. A true multi game master.

What's the score of Chris vs Justin in UMvC3? I remember Justin being Chris's demon up until Chris's early Morridoom days. Actually, what the scores of Chris/Champ/Justin playing each others, because we know that's all that matter in UMvC competitive scene.

WNF is dunzo... and that's from someone living miles from the old WNF. Maybe they'll partner up again when Watson has a new space :\ maybe.

Working on some of Shadow Naoto right now. Some of the shadow combos Denpa does is crazy. I've got a few of them down, but there are some hard ones.

My hands are still trying to get used to 214CDing after each 236A/B. I'm generally fine when there's like 2 or so, but some have a lot. lol

I don't know the exact score but ChrisG definitely has way more matches over Justin even including pre-MorriDoom days. ChrisG has more matches over FChamp as well but not as many. The gap has shrunk over time but ChrisG still has more. That 2013 era of ChrisG was just ridiculous.

Since EVO 2014 though Justin has had ChrisG's number as well as the number of pretty much every other top player Nemo included.

Between FChamp and Justin it's Justin who is on top but not by much.


Wouldn't be surprised that PRRog has best record against ChrisG among the top 5 players. After that would probably be Yipes of all people, he recently 3-0'd ChrisG at Winter Brawl.

What about just plain overall tournament wins, though? ChrisG probably has that?

Ok, this probably won't get traction since it's a Friday night, but top 5 fighting game BGMs ever, go:

1. CVS2 - Fight With the Wind
2. CVS1 - Stage of Nakoruru
3. ST - Cammy's Theme
4. 3S - Jazzy NYC '99
5. Tekken 5 - Moonlight Wilderness

...ohgodtherestoomanytolist

Yo, mad respect for putting Fight With the Wind. I feel like Kinderdijk is overshadowed by London for CvS2 but it's definitely my favorite stage.

Narrowing it down to 5 is hard enough so mine will be in no particular order.

1. Capcom vs SNK2 - Fight with the Wind
2. Darkstalkers 3 - Tower of Arrogance
3. MvSF - Captain America Theme
4. Soul Calibur 2 - Hubris
5. The Last Blade 2 OST It's cheating but I really feel like if you don't listen to The Last Blade 2 as entirety it doesn't do the game's soundtrack justice.

Can't remember if it was a-cho footage or not but tizoc probably linked it. Watching footage of that game is too good.
