I've been working on this guide off and on ever since June. After writing out a Chris character guide for Marvel vs Capcom 3, I thought to myself "wouldn't it be awesome to have character guides for Mercs!?" I've mentioned before that a writer could probably write a whole entire FAQ dedicated to Wesker with how deep he is. I really don't care enough about Wesker to try though. I must admit a damage listing for him would be extremely valuable for making up your own dash melee kills with him.
Anyway, this Chris guide could be the starting of fully redoing my Mercs guide. The only problem is that I probably won't go near as deep with other Mercs characters. I'm the type of person that sets my sights on one character to where I will block out all others.
This guide will eventually cover everything that a beginning player that wants to use Chris seriously could ever need. I need more time to make the stage section better - it's very half-assed at the moment. I'm going to use the stage strategies posted on my blog to help out on this and I'll need to play Mercs a bit more seriously once again to make sure I can stand behind what I write.
A lot of love and attention to detail went into this guide. That's the reason why I've delayed it so much. It's still far from perfect, but I will spend the rest of this year on it. I have a goal to try to make it as big as my original Mercs guide - yeah, you just read that correctly (700K). It's already almost as big as my Reunion guide. Once I'm finished with this guide I don't want my readers to say a simple "Wow!"
I want them to say...
BLEW ME AWAY!
BLEW ME AWAY!
^ That's the type of power I want to unleash with this guide. I listened to that song a bunch while writing it. Halo 2, ftw! Funny, that I've never even played it.
Also, after reading the guide and practicing with Chris, you can finally say this to players that kick you out of a duo game for choosing Chris:
Yeah, that's right, Chris all up in yo' face openin' up a can of thanks on that ass!
Also, here is the most up-to-date example of my gameplay:
I will not fall. I will not fade. I will take your breath away!
And I'll survive, paranoid. I have lost the will to change.
UPDATES to Chris guide
- Added a mention of a head shot melee combination for STARS Chris
