It's Mahvel time thanks to Twitch, as the company partnered with fighting game community streamer and content creator Maximilian Christiansen, famously known as Maximilian Dood, to create a special Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 tournament.
UMvC3 has seen some of the most memorable moments in FGC history and is in the middle of a resurgence thanks to Parsec, a software that shares your PC display through the cloud, letting you play games as if you were offline.
To celebrate such a moment, and thanks to the enthusiasm of the Marvel loyalists, let's take a look at everything you need to know about the Twitch Rivals UMvC3 Live tournament.

The event will take place 23rd November at 4 pm PST/12 am GMT, featuring a 32 man bracket with a pool of players mixing veterans from the scene and new blood that's been supporting the game for the past few months.
According to Max during one of his most recent Twitch broadcasts, here's a preliminary list of competitors:
- Dual Kevin
- Frank Lotion
- Coach Steve
- Kevin Ha
- Killer Kai
- Kyle P
UMvC3 Lives: Prize Pool
Once again, thanks to Maximilian Dood we know the prize pool of the tournament will consist of $4,000.
No information regarding how the event will split the money was given.
UMvC3 Lives: Where to watch
Unlike previous Twitch Rivals events, this one will be streamed at Maximilian Dood's Twitch channel. Be sure to keep an eye out on the directory as we're sure players will broadcast their tournament runs.
Who are you rooting for? Will Capcom take a hint and start working on a proper Marvel vs Capcom 4? Will Dr. Doom take over Max's stream? Time to find out, it's Mahvel time!
