Online Changes in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3

Courtesy of Capcom-Unity comes a short list of changes and improvements being made to Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3’s online. Better retry functions sound good, but if the netcode isn’t improved, I can’t see myself playing the game online.

You can see pictures of the new online features, including a new stage, on the Capcom UMvC3 website.

Wondering about how they’ve improved the online experience for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

#1 Spectator Mode added!

Up to 6 players can watch battles while 2 battle.

#2 Before having a match, you can check out your opponent’s information and decide whether you would like to battle against him/her or not for Player Match and Ranked Match.

#3 In the last game, it was difficult to tell who had bad network manners, but in UMVC3 skull, silver, gold icons will be shown.

#4 Looked over the retry features for matching and made matching better than the last game.

#5 In the last game, if matching was unsuccessful, you were brought back to the top menu screen, but in this game, it will bring you back to the screen where you can search again.

#6 In the leaderboards, there’s a new button/feature which will take you to the rank at which you are positioned, and a cursor to make viewing easier.

Aaaand some other small fixes here and there to improve the online experience.
