What UMvC3 team is Flash using these days? Last I saw on OptionSelect's stream (and this was a few months ago) he was trolling people left and right with Jamming Bomb set-ups on a solid point-MODOK team. I wanted him to take that places.

They really seem to be pushing SC5 a lot, with the pot bonus and the free trip to Final Round. Hopefully there will be lots of hype KoF XIII matches.

Also remember that WGC is also running this weekend, though starting and finishing early in the day. OzHadou Nationals X (OHNX) in Australia, which is also a Road to EVO 2012 tournament, is currently running. When I tuned in, they screwed on the first several matches though, because they weren't running Ver.2012, haha.

I'm not even sure any more, all I know is that Flash really doesn't care for UMvC3 at all. I expect he to at least do decent though, he is still good.

Looking forward to some of that Morrigan action from Chris G.

Also really excited to see some SCV action since I haven't picked up the game yet. Looks like there should be a lot of good matches.

Wee, get hype! Are the team tournaments going to be any good? Or is it kind of a side thing? Also has anyone been watching WGC or OHNX OzHadou?
 
#24
Winterbrawl has been cancelled in favor of a final fantasy vii speed run. Better luck next time stream monsters.

I'll be missing Winter Brawl but I expect good things.
Marvel teams are single elim. Marvel singles apparently don't even start until tomorrow.
