So this past week was the 2nd session in the 4th season of Wednesday Night Fights, a tournament series for a couple of games. Although I try to balance out the information in this blog equally around fighting games, this is totally going to be another Marvel vs Capcom 3 post. What was so special about this Wednesday Night Fights (going to refer to it as WNF from this point on) is that Mike Ross made it to winner's finals playing Thor the entire way. Considering that Thor is typically thought of as a low tier character, this was a real accomplishment. He pulled wins over impressive names such as Clakey D and LLND and even gave Viscant (the tournament winner) a run for his money. Could this win bring about a new surge of Thor players? He's already a likable character and this isn't the first time a player has done really well with him. Justin Wong won an entire tournament before with a Thor/Hsien-ko/Chris team before. But that's not very important. This post is to give props to someone who definitely deserves it.
Mike Ross, you did good. Keep it up and we hope to see more of you!
For those who want to see exactly how he was beasting, you can look up his videos here: http://frame-advantage.com/event/wednesday-night-fights-4-2-mvc3-singles/281 or if you simply want to keep up with him, you can check out his youtube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/user/crosscountertv . I'm personally a Mike Ross fan now.
