This isn't a complaint topic per say but I'm just curious as to the mindset of the more experienced players. Why is it that most successful players online and offline decide to stick to characters like vergil, zero, spencer, doom, etc rather than characters they actually like? Is the need to win that much more important than the drive to win with characters they enjoy more?
I wish top players at evo level would play more low tier characters but I can understand how everything changes while playing for money.. but why online then? There's nothing to be gained but a record which I believe can be reset anyway. Before I piss anyone off and I get flamed, I'll just admit off the bat that I'm terrible at this game but I absolutely LOVE to watch veterans go at it and it'd just be much nicer to see more variety in characters. --- We can live like Jack and Sally if we want
Because people want to win and who is to say they don't like Zero,Vergil,Spencer and the other top tiers.
Plenty of those people liked those characters before we even had a coherent tier list for this game or for Vanilla. --- In America businesses don't need profits to survive. - llaW_Enots The SFxT boards in a nutshell: http://i.imgur.com/9ECXm.gif
I can't speak for everyone else, but I actually do like Zero and Vergil.
I've been using him since Tatsunoko vs Capcom, used him about 95% of the time in MMX4 and 5. Vergil's just an all around badass,and yes, I have played DMC3.
It just so happens that the characters I like are top tier. Fortunately I also play Hulk, Spidey, and a few others too because I like them. --- Official Zero of the UMvC3 boards. PSN: ichikoga UMvC3: Hulk/Strange/Ammy(in training), P4A: Akihiko/Narukami Pokemon Black 2 FC: 2495-1944-9028
