Pensacola, FL – Recently a ground-breaking discovery in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was made by long-time marvel player ContinuerOfConflict. His latest video demonstrates that holding the back direction while an attack connects with your fighter will “block” the attack, greatly reducing its damage and followup potential. Many believe the full impact of this technique is yet to be seen.
“This changes everything,” said a local player known as Switchup. “It’s amazing that even 8 years later, people are still finding new tech that drastically changes how we can play the game. It really goes to show how deep the Marvel vs Capcom games can be.”
Meanwhile, other players aren’t sold on the new blocking technique.
“Once again people are over-hyping every little new discovery,” said another local player NovaMasher420. “It looks neat in training mode, but we need to look at its use in a real match. Sure, you’re able to stop the full effects of an attack but you still take a small percentage of the damage. Meanwhile blocking has no hitbox and deals no damage to your opponent, all while still being vulnerable to grabs. Sounds pretty useless when you could be pressing forward and heavy.”
While it’s unclear how much blocking will change the game, it’s nice to see Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 continuing to evolve. We look forward to what new discoveries will be uncovered in the future to push the game even further. And if we’re really lucky, maybe Capcom will notice this passionate scene still playing Marvel 3 and finally decide to release a sequel.
