Hes ass and free @ every other FG, Feels himself at an all scrubs only tournament meanwhile hes placed top 3 in other tournaments before, this brag is so disgusting and an embarrassment to top players all across.
And that guy Dice will see you in the finals and body your business
Why so salty? The rules state that “Players cannot be considered a top player/OG player”. People have mixed feeling whether I am a top player or not and I am definitely not an OG unlike yourself. I asked the organizers and they gave me the green light. MVC3 was my first fighting game and I was never talented but I put my time into the game. Went to almost every tournament and casual so I can play the best players. Thats what new players don’t understand nowadays, to be the best you have to train with the best.
Hopefully there will be a rising star next season but I am taking the title this season, so COME AT ME BRO!
While calling them “scrub” tournaments provides no benefit, implying that they are inherently a “joke” or of lesser value because they cater to new players, Scott makes a salient point. Jing’s statement, “Thats what new players don’t understand nowadays, to be the best you have to train with the best.” clearly indicates he does not consider himself a new or inexperienced player. By his own admission he has traveled to a wide variety of tournaments and events; clearly a player who belongs in an event that is “Open to anyone wanting to learn UMVC3”. There is an incredible lack of distinction between the spirit and the letter of the rules pertaining to these events. These events will continue to to be mired with controversy until players understand they do nothing but look foolish by joining events they are well above. It benefits no one and does nothing to aid the community; presumably the goal of these events.
I dont understand how they are a joke? Yes they are for “scrubs” and don’t benefit the top players in the community, but in the long run, the more people who are joining tounaments, the more competition the og players get, the more money there is in the pot and the community as a whole will grow. Players (like me) find it hard to commit a lot of time off work and school to go to tournaments when they know the competition is way ahead of them. Thats why tournaments like this get people out to try out the whole tournament experience and hopefully get players wanting to level up. Its like, if you wanted to learn how to play soccer, you wouldn’t go on to challange the likes of ronaldo or messi, just to get embarassed and lose your spirit, you would want to begin playing with other amatueres, build morale, and work your way up if you enjoyed the experience.
