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 3!
Captainbayeee of Sacramento, California likes to play aggressively and with big damage dealing characters. He once played for 15 hours straight while doing an arena grind for the 4-star exclusive Deadpool character. But it looks like his real mission is for redemption after losing at last year’s Content Creator Showdown Tournament at NYCC! His most used champions are Corvus Glaive, Void, and Blade. He says he's so tough to beat “Because I have Loki, the God of Mischief, on my side!”
AtreiuMontoya from Terre Haute, Indiana streams almost every weeknight but plays for the fun of the game. His style is "passively-aggressive," often taking the fight to the enemy rather than being patient. He loves a good challenge, including boss rushes and monthly events on epic. His most used champions are Blade, Ghost Rider, and Void. But while he's a warrior gamer, AtreiuMontoya is best known for Storytime. “Every month I read the story for the viewers – [with] sad attempts at voicing them.” [We’re sure it’s great!]
DTMelodicMetal hails from Las Vegas, Nevada and is a resilient player who goes into fights with a strategy -- but he's ready to adapt that strategy when necessary. His favorite achievement is live-streaming the Maze event exploration without using units. His most used champions are Omega Red, Doctor Voodoo, and Proxima Midnight. He says: “I want to win because competing against other players makes Marvel Contest of Champions fun. When I'm the winner, I'll say this is for T-Rex (4LOki joke).”
And those are your plucky players for Week 3 of the Marvel Contest of Champions: Summoner Showdown! Which one will join chunkyb and BigBlue807 at New York Comic Con? You’ll find out tomorrow!
