Australian Character Prefrences?
« on: May 22, 2013, 10:41:02 AM »
I'm new to the Australian Marvel scene, I was just curious if any trends have appeared in the Australian Marvel scene character wise that is, I have watched my fair share of the US FGC and see they value Doom assist a lot etc what characters or strategies have we adopted.

-Do Australians have their own kind of Marvel play style? or do we simply recycle the current meta from overseas sources?

One main difference I noticed while watching the past OHN broadcasts is that we like to use Team Supers a lot more than the Americans do why is that? can anyone explain?

Back in the old days (Buttonsmash/BAM 2012) I was the one who first made the saying about the 3 states signature char:

NSW: Wolverine
VIC: Vergil
QLD: Magneto

To which Fish said:

"Melbourne doesn't have that many Vergils." (Me:  ???)

This is still somewhat true nowadays, but by now everyone goes Doom Vergil + one other. Fuck character diversity.

Since BAM is still fresh on my mind, I'll list out the main teams of some of the good Marvel players.

Note: bold indicates the strongest character that I think of the person's team.

NSW
Arnold: Morrigan/Storm/Trish
bksama: Magneto/Doom/Vergil
Afterdeath: Vergil/Wesker/Strider

VIC
ToXY: Magneto/Doom/Vergil
Somniac: Nova/Dormammu/Strange
Antman: Wesker/Vergil/Strider
Solid Stef: Joe/Frank/Raccoon
Daichi: Magneto/Doom/Vergil
Burnout: Morrigan/Spencer/Doom
Fish: Zero/Doom/Nova

QLD
Baxter: Magneto/Spencer/Doom
Hai: Wesker/Dormammu/Magneto
Low Blow: Zero/Doom/Magneto
Deathwish: Viper/Doom(?)/Strider

Apologies to Tom/Tyrone cos I honestly don't know what team you use nowadays.

I noticed they spoke about Arnold's "Signature"  team combo which I find interesting as I haven't seen anything like it in other Marvel pro matches.

Also thanks for the run down on the players in the scene at the moment. it helps to know who to follow and who is in what state.

Cheers for that.

For the most part Australia uses American or Japanese teams, we have a small amount of unique teams, but for the most part it's just a top tier shell with a different char in the middle.

Arnold's team is the only truly unique team that Austrlaia has that does well imo.
Stop sandbagging.

As for why Australians (or why Arnold does anyway) use THCs more: The Arnold Special THC (Morrigan Uppercut Assist + Storms Hailstorm) is a totally invincible 2 bar assist punish/GTFO me/fuck you button... since Morrigan's Hyper is invincible on start up, and Storm's Hyper doesnt have its startup when THCed into.

Then Morrigan recovers in time to do stuff while hailstorm is still happening, because why not.

Ah okay, that is some technology he has there, I just found it interesting how he runs his team.

In some cases as well, THCs actually do more damage then DHCs from one char into another and even Lv 3s depending on certain/specific team compositions. Not to mention the ability to add onto the combo which is impossible by performing a Lv 3 on a char you know that won't kill e.g. Thor
