After an infinite involving the Reality Stone’s Infinity Surge and Spider-Man’s HP Web Ball was recently discovered in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, many players were concerned about it’s potential negative impact on the game’s overall competitive longevity. Misfit Gaming’s Angelic began immediately calling for a ban on the loop, going so far as to preemptively ban it from next year’s Undefeated if it wasn’t removed by then. Fortunately, the Capcom Fighters Twitter account has been quick to respond, noting that the developers are currently aware of the loop and are in the midst of looking into some possible solutions on how to remove it, likely without having to weaken the Reality Stone or Spider-Man too significantly.

Some players, like James Chen, have suggested a fix of capping the Reality Stone’s Infinity Surge to only be able to be used twice in a single combo — after which the opponent will flip out, ending the combo, similarly to the Power Surge.

This is definitely good news for the MvC:I community, and hopefully Capcom will respond with more information soon. You can see the tweets below.
