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 4!
JJW from Spring, Texas says that his method of play is “try, try again.” In addition to being the Alliance Leader of the Simian Defense Force, he’s also the producer of the UMCoC Podcast. Part of his player strength is his intimidating internet presence. His most used champions are Ghost, Corvus Glaive, and Spider-Man (Stark-Enhanced), which is also his highest-ranked character. But this cloistered champ is a loner, Dottie. A rebel. Says JJW: “New phone, who dis? Also, don't DM me.”
Roastedbagel of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida calls Marvel Contest of Champions both his digital hobby and guilty pleasure because it combines competition, Marvel, and nostalgia from his fighting game days as a kid. He’s been playing the game since the day it came out and describes his approach to battle as “aggressive.” His most used champions are Ghost, Killmonger, and Void. His mantra? “Anything but arena.”
Deacon OTR from Benton, Kentucky is a father of five who has been a radio DJ for 24 years and a Marvel fan since childhood. His favorite character is Cable, which has earned him the moniker “The Cable Guy.” The game’s amazing animations are what initially hooked him, but the community is what keeps him coming back. His play style is “smart and conservative.” His most used champions are Venom, Archangel and Ghost Rider. “Games are for enjoyment. If they start to anger you, put it down and do something else."
And those are your plucky players for Week 4 of the Marvel Contest of Champions: Summoner Showdown! Which one will win their ticket to New York Comic Con? You’ll find out tomorrow!
