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 7!
Ex Machina of South San Francisco, California has been playing video games since he was a kid. He plays for fun but has a competitive streak and is ready to play anywhere he can get wifi. His fighting style is like a counter puncher in boxing, and he doesn’t like being very aggressive unless it's necessary. Ex Machina is currently in the number 1 AW alliance for Season 10 and hopes to win! His most used champions are Ghost, Wasp, and Havok. His mantra? “Get Gud.”
Ms.Insomnia is a Jersey Girl living in South Florida and a full-time mother, full-time teacher, and full-time leader, recruiter, psychiatrist, Moderator, and friend of the Marvel Contest of Champions line community. She thrives on helping alliances and individual members of the community and takes pride in being an example for non-traditional gamers competing at this level. Her style of fight is good ol’ fashion button mashing and she’s always ready to revive and dive back into the fray. Her most used champions are Domino, Voodoo, and Hyperion.
Stat bot from Vancouver, British Columbia likes to play Marvel Contest of Champions for fun and relive the comics of his youth. He likes running the blind path in the AW so he’s ready for any unexpected challenges. His favorite quest was “The Collector” simply because once you’ve beaten him, you never have to face him again. His most used champions are OgV, Void, and Blade. His motto is: “It’s a game – if you aren’t having fun, you’re doing something wrong.”
And those are your plucky players for Week 7 of the Marvel Contest of Champions: Summoner Showdown! Which one will win their ticket to New York Comic Con? You’ll find out tomorrow!
