It just goes to show how much of a joke MvC3. That series has always been unbalanced.

Or maybe the kid was a decent player?

The kid has talent.

it's a spectical fighter...There is no skill just flashy lights and big sounds
radphil  +   1358d ago
Apparently jozzah or madusha didn't see the Mike Ross fight...

He lost because Deadpool basically suicided.

I mean people were booing Chris G for winning a match against Noah.

The Mike Ross match, where a player blew himself up playing Deadpool, was a sign of a person being caught up in the action not realizing that Deadpool has that gag move in there, it didn't do it accidnetly.

And people were booing Chris G cause come on, you have to cheer for the kid and boo on anyone beating on the kid.

But yeah, the kid is talented. Saying anything less diminishes everything he did because you suck at game.

Flush wasn't playing for real guys. Flush didn't even made a single reset or OTG during the entire match and he was wasting bars doing random Team Hyper combos. =/

I was saying the same thing as I watched this. It was still pretty hype though.
kornbeaner  +   1358d ago
This is EVO, if he wasn't playing for "real" than he has done himself and this kid a dishonor. Noah has beat top community players before so I am not going to downplay his victory at this grand event. If Flush didn't take this serious than its his loss, I don't care if your 8 or 80, if we're at a tournament I don't wanna lose and you're age will not determine If I take you serious or not.

I always love hearing people attempt to stick up for so-called "pros" whenever they lose.

The guy lost fare and square, don't make excuses for him. Horrible ones at that.

The kid could kick my butt at it as well, I'm sure.
T3mpr1x  +   1358d ago
Lol the commentators were speaking another language. I don't understand fighting games at all.
SITH  +   1358d ago
I got nothing to say about that kid. I can't play that game for crap.

Lose lose here. if you beat a kid, you're branded a douche. if you lose to a kid, you're branded as a wuss.

Yep lol when the kid finally lost everyone was booing the guy who beat him. Everyone knew the kid wasn't gonna make it. He made top 40 so he should be proud of himself. These guys play for money and not even a 8 yr old gonna stop them.
Lord_Sloth  +   1357d ago
Indeed but I think this dude threw the match to the kid.
HurstDarkStar  +   1358d ago
umm this kids actually considered a prodigy by Shryuken member's so i wouldn't be trash talking him at all, he could very well perfect anyone one of us on this forum!
Lyr1c  +   1358d ago
I don't mean to sound like a douche and to take an 8yr old's glory, but I'm more than positive that his age helped him throughout the tournament. I don't consider myself one of the best players in the world, or even tournament quality, but I know for a fact that I could put up a better show than what was shown here.

The kid has skill, but he's not all that he's being made out to be.

Either way, I'm happy for the kid.
Boletarian  +   1358d ago
I don't know about MvC games, but I once played a match of Super Street Fighter 4 against an experienced friend and I beat him just by violently smashing the buttons as fast as I could. I didn't even know what I was pressing but I managed some special moves very quickly.

That just tells me that with some fighting games it's not really about skill or timing it's just about button mashing.
Lyr1c  +   1358d ago
In this specific video, I could tell that the kid wasn't mashing buttons. What WAS displayed however, is that the kid only knew basic combos.

He won, but I don't think it was purely on skill.
RockmanII7  +   1358d ago
Your comparing your friend to some of the best players in the world.
Boletarian  +   1358d ago
No, I'm not. I forget to mention that I had never played Street Figther 4 before and suck at fighting games in general. My friend was very experienced in the game and series and had been playing it for about a year. He's also good at Mortal Kombat. The Point is, he's a much better player than me but I still beat him just by mashing buttons whereas he knew all the moves including Haidouken.

This backs my original claim that some fighting games don't require skill.

If the game is a test of skill, then why was a noob like myself able to beat an experienced player who was definitely trying his hardest against me?
RockmanII7  +   1358d ago
I'm not a big SF player, but it sounds like your friend either sucks or let you win.
FriedGoat  +   1358d ago
Your friend may have played for a year but he must be terrible. Nobody could beat a decent player from button mashing on streetfighter 4. "he knew all the moves including haidouken" well, if your good you'll be doing alot more than that you wouldnt even get a move in.

I bet you're one of those guys that think poker is all about luck too?
Boletarian  +   1358d ago
Nothing is about luck. It's called chance.

The element of bluffing plays a major factor in poker.

However, since bluffing cannot be used to beat an opponent in a fighter video game, your comment is completely irrelevant. I bet you're one of those guys that doesn't think before he speaks.
FriedGoat  +   1358d ago
Are you kidding, Bluffing is used in Streetfighter loads.... walking towards a downed character to make it look like your going for a grab ect. there are loads of bluffing tactics. You have no idea what your talking about.
harlem_v1  +   1357d ago

Again you show your ignorance on everything. Bluffing is HUGE in fighting games. Mind games themselves are a big factor just like they are in poker.

And your usage of "chance" instead of "luck" is another sign of your ignorance. Chance is nothing but another term for luck. Chance = a : something that happens unpredictably without discernible human intention or observable cause

What you were thinking of, IF you knew about poker, was probability. Probability is about factoring your percentage of getting the cards you need or the cards you avoid.

So yeah, how about you admit that you don't know anything about poker and fighting games already, you've already made your opinion null and void with your ignorance.
Kran  +   1358d ago
He's great at the game.

OK now where's his parents? Why? WHAT IS AN 8 YEAR OLD DOING PLAYING A 12/TEEN GAME?!?!?!
RockmanII7  +   1358d ago
Ah, he was using that cheap Hulk tactic. H/S/SJ/M/M/H/S cmon anyone can do that. Just do overheads, it's a flawed strategy. Props on the kid going to Evo, but he made it to the top 48 and he definitely shouldn't be in the top 50.
Pozzle  +   1358d ago
I wish I was that good at games when I was 8.

I wish I was that good at games now.

EVO-OM3GA  +   1358d ago
Very good match but the Noah had a very cheap team
Mike_Tha_Hero  +   1358d ago

Well it is MvC3 afterall.
madara0sama  +   1358d ago
I tried playing this game but I suck badly at it. Too me it's just another button smashing fighting game. Also if you plan to buy MvC soon I suggest you wait for the Super Ultra Marvel VS Capcom Special Final Complete Arcade Edition.
