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 8!

BrutalDLX from Chicago, Illinois describes his style of play as “safe.” He likes Marvel Contest of Champions because it’s the perfect mix of skill, strategy, collecting, and nostalgia – all qualities he enjoys in a game! His most used champions are Corvus Glaive, Ghost, and Void. This gamer from the windy city has a simple but profound motto: “Have fun!”

Yeet of Milwaukee, Wisconsin says his favorite part of Marvel Contest of Champions is a well-designed fight that pushes the experience of the game using Marvel characters to create memorable fights for players and viewers to enjoy. He describes his play style as “adaptable and safe because there are only a few factors to worry about in a fight. As long as you have your bases covered you'll win.” Yeet also has a taste for revenge – gamer Lagacy beat him at NYCC 2017 – is this a chance for redemption? His most used champions are Magik, Spider-Man (Stark-Enhanced), and Hyperion. On why he’s so hard to beat: “Because I want to win more than you.”

Another midwesterner Turbo Tim from Green Bay, Wisconsin describes his style of play as “tactical,” and his favorite quest was Realm of Legends. Turbo Tim also boasts a 650,000 total base hero rating. His most used champions are Captain America (Infinity War), OG Thor, and Nick Fury. On his competition: “They are all a great group of people and have helped this game grow tremendously! Going to be a lot of fun that for sure and very challenging!”

And those are your plucky players for Week 8 of the Marvel Contest of Champions: Summoner Showdown! Which one will win their ticket to New York Comic Con? You’ll find out tomorrow!
