So, who are these gallant gamers going for the gold? Here’s a rundown of the three Marvel gamers you’ll see in the Marvel Contest of Champions: Summoner Showdown in Week 2!
CΛDE from Altanta, Georgia is not just a gamer, but a musician, guitar instructor, and streamer who loves to plan for his battles. His strategy is to play it safe in game modes where giving up deaths matters. His favorite challenges are competitive war, content like Variant 2, boss rush and celebrity challenges. CΛDE‘s most used champions are Omega Red, Corvus Glaive, and Ghost, and when he wins, he vows to thank the academy.
Next up is FroJo34 from Houston, Texas! His style of play is parry and destroy – but will he be able to destroy the competition? His most used champions are Rogue, Arch Angel, and Red Hulk, but you’ll have to tune in tomorrow to see who FroJo34 brings to this rodeo! His motto: “Never quit, never give up.”
Finally, we’ve got BigBlue807 on the roster. Hailing from Mahopac, New York, BigBlue807 does “whatever it takes to get the job done” while trying to reach his highest potential. He has a 1.4M roster with nearly 300K arena wins and he says he plays MCoC “whenever he’s awake.” His most used champions are Corvus Glaive, Void, and Hyperion. His most used mantra? “Keep on grinding!”
And those are your plucky players for Week 2 of the Marvel Contest of Champions: Summoner Showdown! Which one will join chunkyb at New York Comic Con? You’ll find out tomorrow!
