I am a 15 year old British student, who has just signed up, so don’t troll on me :3
Basically, the meaning of this thread is for me to introduce myself a little, and hopefully get to know a couple of you
I’m 15. Live in London, have a Youtube channel, first fighting game was/is MvC3, LOVE IT, absolute nub though
I also am not sure if I have posted in the right place… took a look at the forums but still not sure, but hey. I’ll learn
I was wondering if you guys could direct me to someone/some videos/something willing to educate me in the ways of fighting games; indeed, I do not have an Arcade Fight Stick or whatever you call them, so I use my normal controller. I understand basic terminology to do with the game… OTGs, QCF, QCB, etc, but still have a LOT to learn. So, if there is anyone out there willing to educate me, or if you know of a great set of videos for me to get used to Wall Bouncing, Extended Combos, and more, then let me know
Looks like a great forum and I can’t wait to get down to the nitty gritty of MvC3! I only have it on Xbox, although I do own a PS3 as well :}
lemme get this straight ??? you ask for help then dog on the help someone suggests lol ? I dont mean to bust your balls dude its just your off to a great start. Anyways welcome to SRK. If you ever wanna play ST I’ll show you around GGPO/Supercade
You can use either site as a resource for information (SRK is probably better but I’m sure everything here ends up over there eventually), but if you’re looking for local players to play with offline or info on tournaments over there then you may want to have an account at Neo Empire.
I’m sorry, didn’t mean to make a bad first impression. I’ve been up for ages, doing a 24 hour gaming stream on J.TV to fundraise for Japan, and my head is killing me. Will go get some sleep I guess… Sorry
yo the first thing you need to check out is the hyper guide here on srk. it’s on the top of the page, the link says mcv3 guide. watch all the tutorial videos, you’ll get better instantly just by understanding what’s going on in the game.
and just putting this out there, unless you really really want to play on a regular pad, invest in a fight stick. it’s worth it, because its awesome. even if you think you’ll eventually get one, just get one now. it’ll be a pain in the ass to learn on pad and then switch to stick
Nice to meet you :). It may be hard to explain certain mechanics of MVC3 if this is your first time playing a fighting game, but everyone here would agree that getting the Official Bradygames MVC3 strategy guide is a great tool for learning the game specifically. There is also the SRK MVC3 hyper guide which covers some important stuff too. Marvel vs Capcom 3 - Shoryuken Wiki, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Strategy and More!
Whichever team you choose to practice the most with, I recommend actively discussing them with other users in their respective sub-forums.
I suggest you read the Street Fighter footsies handbook in it’s entirety. Although footsies aren’t much of a part in MVC3, it explains how you should perceive each match and carefully interact with your opponent.
Afterwards you can focus on defense and tactics that will trick your opponent. Combos are essential to your offense but you will feel dumb for not knowing how to set them up on your opponent.
Remember that if you block low you can get hit by high attacks like overheads. If you block high you are vulnerable to low attacks. This is the foundation for mix ups.
Finally, if you are looking to level up your game rather quickly, try meeting with some locals in UK. Watch any major tournaments coming up (like PowerUp 2011 in April), or go to a UK one yourself! Do you know who Ryan Hart is? He is regarded as the best player from the UK!
I agree that you should check out Neo Empire. SRK is mainly from the US perspective or culture in a way. You probably want to root for UK players to win tourneys right? lol.
The London forum is here: http://neoempire.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=48
I could say a million things honestly. Try to make your questions less general. Whatever you do
though, don’t give up!
