The Marvel-dedicated Curleh Circuit has wrapped up, and with Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite coming out this week, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3‘s tenure in a lot of FGC events wraps up along with it. However, before everyone migrates to the newest game, the final Curleh champion must be crowned. Many dominant, high-level players showed up, including past and present Evo champions. Who will be the one to lay the game to rest? Let’s find out.

Streaming was handled by Team Spooky on Twitch. As usual, players will be listed in “[sponsor/team name] | [player name] [[characters used]]” format. If you’d like to see the event’s brackets, you can do so here, on

Surprising no one, the grand finals came down to rematch between this year’s Evo champion, RyanLV, and runner-up, ChrisG (who was last year’s Evo champion). This time, however, ChrisG was able to turn things around completely, first sending RyanLV to losers finals from winners finals, then closing it all off in one set in grand. It’s a fitting end for Marvel vs. Capcom 3‘s brand in Curleh, to be put to rest by possibly the most consistent player of the game.

With this year’s Curleh concluded, and a new game soon to be in everyone’s hands, many players and events will be moving on from Marvel 3 as the weeks pass. Some will be begrudging about it, some won’t, and others will be happy to finally stop seeing Vergil and Dr. Doom everywhere. Either way, it’s all Mahvel.

I've been playing video games since 4 years of age, and finally began to deeply invest myself into the world of fighting games in 2015 after many off-and-on encounters with games inside the genre. I have a preference for 3D fighters, but also enjoy Street Fighter, King of Fighters, and some airdashers. I'm also a big fan of RPGs and shmups.
