I liked how it gives a losing player a chance to make a comeback until…I have encountered this highly cheap Japanese player who has found a good way to exploit the level 3 x-factor with Arthur.
I play on PS3, and this Japanese player has about 1300 wins
He was using Deadpool, Dr.Doom and Arthur
He kept tagging between Deadpool and Dr.Doom but not Arthur, he saved it for last
He was owning me at the beginning, but I still managed to kill both his Deadpool and Dr.Doom while I had one character down on my team
Then finally came his Arthur, once he touched the ground, he turned his armor into gold, x-factor level 3, then spammed with his spears (down to forward + M button)
That’s all he had to do, just kept spamming spears. Once I blocked the 1st spear which he threw at me, I couldn’t escape at all, I couldn’t even jump or super jump because he had already thrown the next spear at me (thanks to level 3 x-factor speed) while I was still in block posture. Advancing guard couldn’t even help to give me enough space to escape or counter-attack. And I guarantee you that you can’t even do a teleport move fast enough to escape.
It is said that Level 3 x-factor gives a duration of 20 seconds, but each time his spears hit me, it only extends the duration even further. And here’s another bad news, the spear does a great chip damage on level 3! So, he can kill a full health blocking opponent in 10 seconds.
Ok, I’m gonna stop here. I don’t think I can really convince other people how serious that exploit with typing text only. I wished I could have recorded that match to show it. I’m sorry, I love the game, but that exploit just ruined it. I just hope that more players will be aware of it and use it too, then maybe Capcom will notice and do something about it
