(Magneto/Strider/Doom) aka MagnetiCLock team combo tutorial

The following video clip is an excerpt from a MvC2 online match. On display is the raw offensive prowess of Team MagnetiCLock (Magneto/Strider/Doom). The team is a hybrid of the power of Magneto and the proven dominance of the Strider/Doom trap. Through the use of DHCs (delayed hyper combos) and timed tag outs, there are many impressive combos with this relatively unexplored team.

MvC2 Trivia # 1 and #2

These are the first two installment of a brand new series created by Romneto. The purpose of this series is to present MvC2 enthusiasts with an array of interesting/comical/bizarre match situations and discover what people expect to happen in those situations.

In this video, the question is: Will maximum spider safely pass through both Charlie's sonic break (multiple sonic boom super)and Thanos's power ball? Will it hit Thanos?

In the second video, Cable's defense is pitted against a relentless rushdown assault from MSP (Magneto/Storm/Psylocke). Who will prevail?

Rom Tutorial Series: Romneto's hands doing the Rom

Over the years many people have requested videos of someone's hands executing Magneto's Rom Infinite. While there have been other videos that show a person's finger/hand movements that perform the Rom, none have had both an optimal camera angle (for viewing button/joystick inputs)and a picture-in-picture displaying the actual gameplay synched with the joystick/button inputs.

As part of the upcoming 'Rom Tutorial Series' Romneto created a superb visual example of how to do the Rom Infinite. This video is meant to help those who want to learn the Rom, so if anyone has any questions about a part of the video or the Rom Infinite in general, then feel free to ask.

Romneto Interview

Just this past weekend, Romneto was interviewed by youtube user 'Darth48076'for a show called Fighter's Fury. Topics of interest include: How MvC2 stands apart from other fighting games, the ways online play changes the MvC2 experience, the tier system of ranking teams and characters, and reflections on The Danger Room. There are some great comedic moments and the questions were insightful and provided ample opportunity for Romneto to display his personality and perspectives on MvC2 as well as other relevant topics.

Make sure to check out Darth48076's other videos, and have a great night!

MvC2 Online: Death is not the end

This is an excerpt from a match between Romneto (MSP) and Taiji (MSP) played about two weeks ago. This is not an illusion or a video splice to give the effect of a K.O. on Psylocke. She actually was killed and that is why you can see the K.O. show up onscreen. In this case, the game adjusted itself inexplicably and provided the opportunity for one of the most impressive Psylocke comebacks ever witnessed. Taiji must have had a phoenix down stashed in his MAS stick to recover from the psyshot of death. With the advent of Online play, MvC2 has experienced a sligtht genre shift.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 Online is both a fighting game and an role playing game (RPG).

MvC2 Money Match: Romneto vs Phocus *The Rematch*

About a month after the initial money match (Romneto won 7-3), these two competitors faced off again. This time the format was first to ten wins for $50. Although there were less people in the crowd at Syn's place, they did a great job of creating that Marvel hype that we all know and love. This time all matches were recorded, and there were some highly entertaining moments. Don't forget to stay tuned at the conclusion of the matches. There is an Aftermath video that displays the post-match reactions of the players and the crowd. This is what Marvel drama is all about!

Both players are ready to go for part 3 at the next Syn session.

The counter-trijump is an advanced MvC2 technique that can give you a fighting chance after flying screen and wake up situations. It's not something you can depend upon all the time but it is very useful. Going from a defensive position to an offensive one, this technique (when used properly) can have a major impact on the battle.

It seems that a regular jump is less than a frame in MvC2. If someone can find me data on this, that would be helpful. At match start, if both players do the switch trick glitch, and Magneto starts with a c lk and you hold up, you can effectively evade the c lk. Magneto's c lk is one frame.

Refer to this frame data chart for more technical information.

On wake up, if you hold up you then you usually can evade low attacks. While you are in the air then immediately input an airdash downwards with an attack and you will surprise your opponent with a quick attack to the head. This is not a sure fire technique and your opponent can counter it. When used with discretion, it's godlike. I especially like using this technique against MSS (Magneto/Storm/Sent) because the team doesn't have an anti-air to discourage you from jumping on wake up. Be aware, if your opponent does a meaty attack, you will probably get hit.

Check out how Both Josh 360 and Sanford use the technique in the edited video below. This is pulled from the Josh360 (4W MIMS) vs Sanford (5W MSP)- Season Beatings III match from Preppy's website.

In MvC2 all you need is one hit to turn everything around.

Special thanks to Preppy, Romneto, and Joo.

New Year Hype in Long Island

Money matches are always exciting. When players know money is on the line, the intensity of the matches skyrocket. This past weekend, there was a money match between Romneto and Phocus. Both players fought well but Romneto came out on top due to his experience and composure. The video below shows some of the hype. Unfortunately the camcorder died, so only the first three matches were captured. This is not intended to display the best MvC2 players in the world, but it does show how much fun we all have at Long Island MvC2 sessions.

There will be a rematch at Syn's next MvC2 Session.
