is killer instinct about to become a major game within the FGC?

#1NightMareBunnyPosted 12/19/2013 10:15:26 PM
Since Capcom's license with marvel has expired and there are concerns that this might affect the streamed tournaments hosting of UMVC3

would this boost Killer Instinct up the board? USF4 will have it's time in the sun but I'm not sure if it can last that long and Injustice has already faded from the minds of fighting game players apparently

Other Fighting Games Like The New Blazblue don't have a concrete release date so with no real competition against it...whose to say Killer Instinct won't become the FGC's Stream Darling overnight?

Watching KI on leveluplive as I type this lol!

Irregardless, for all intensive purposes I could care less if you take me for granite. If given free reign, I'll continue to tow the line so it's a mute point.

it came to my mind after seeing the video made by maximillion where he said this cause problems for the fighting game community if this prevents UMVC3 from being streamed anymore

2013 was a crappy year for fighting games but if this does kill off UMVC3 in streams then Killer Instinct will pick up the slack and take advantage

Nah, if Marvel really gets into some trouble then USF4 will just dominate the FGC, SF4 is the game that attracts the international players after all. KI will get played, but I don't see it taking over or becoming a truly major game.

Blazblue is going to godstomp Killed Instinct.

Why can't UMvC3 tournaments be streamed?

Also everything is really cheap on the digital end right now.

UMvC3 is $5.
Shuman and Jill $1.50 each.
Every Costume Complete Value Pack is $4.

MvC2 is $3.75.

Everything gets taken down on Dec 26.

It's not from Capcom, Namco, or SNK so probably not. I'm upset that Virtua Fighter being the most technical fighter out there don't get any love.

Atleast KoF 13 is there.

i don't really hear much hype for the game and SSF4's Stream Presence has dwindled lately

it's still there but I'm not sure if it still draws a big crowd at places like Wednesday Night Fights

I can't imagine anything replacing UMvC3. At every major tournament its second only to SF4.

No way will KI or something take it's place. Non-Capcom Tournaments will stream it no problem like they did/do MvC2 and CvS2.

And Nothing but Capcom fighters will be at Capcom only tournaments.
