Going into EVO 2014’s Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMVC3) grand finals, the biggest question on everyone’s mind was likely whether Justin Wong would be able to join the multi-game EVO championship club. Not only did he join the ultra-exclusive club, but he did so in masterful fashion.
Wong used his “Wong Factor” to eliminate two previous — Filipino Champ and Flocker — EVO Champions and then ChrisG in the grand finals to take the UMVC3 Championship! Now he can added UMVC3 to his multiple UMVC2 first-place EVO titles.
1. Justin Wong (Wolverine, Storm, Akuma; $6,084)
2. ChrisG (Morrigan, Dr. Doom, Vergil | Others; $2,028)
3. Filipino Champ (Magneto, Dormammu, Dr. Doom | Others; $1,014)
4. RayRay (Magneto, Dr. Doom, Sentinel; $405.60)
5. Flocker (Zero, Vergil, Hawkeye | Others; $202.80)
5. Jan (Hulk, Shuma-Gorath, Haggar | Others; $202.80)
7. Marn (Zero, Vergil, Strider; $101.40)
7. Insaynne (Nova, Spencer, Dr. Doom; $101.40)
So in the end, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 did not see the dawn of a new champion, as many had expected, but rather the return of a king. Watch the grand finals between Justin Wong and ChrisG in the video above and let us know who you wanted to win, if not between these two then in the entire tournament.
