New York Comic Con 2018

Marvel Contest of Champions will be at New York Comic Con 2018! NYCC runs from October 4 to 7 at the Javitz Center in New York City. The MCoC booth number is #1466 (same location as last year, right next to the main Marvel booth).

We’ve got an exciting event, Summoners! We hope that you can take part! We’ll be bringing back our NYCC Ultimate Champion Tournament from last year so get ready to compete! We’ll also have great swag and in-game prizes for you!

Can’t make it to New York Comic Con? We’ve got you covered! You can follow our activities on our Facebook page where we’ll be live streaming some of our events and holding contests to win MCoC NYCC Swag Bags! For more details on our social giveaways, check out our blog post! Be on the lookout for Marvel’s live stream too as they’ll be revealing a new original Champion to The Contest on October 4th at 2:00 PM ET. They will also have coverage of our MCoC Ultimate NYCC Championship Finals that will be live streamed on October 6th at 6:00 PM ET!


Can LAGACY defend his title? Do you think you have what it takes? Test your skills with our MCoC Ultimate NYCC Champion Tournament! Here’s how it’ll work:

  • Beat the boss at the Pre-Qualifiers and move on to the Qualifiers
  • Beat the boss at the Qualifiers and climb to the top of the leaderboard
  • On Thursday, Friday and Saturday the top 3 players on the leaderboard will compete at our booth to become the Daily Champion. You can check these out live on our Facebook page where we’ll be live streaming these events! See schedule below.
  • On Saturday, we will have the Thursday, Friday and Saturday winners compete against each other to become the 2018 MCoC Ultimate NYCC Champion on the main Marvel Stage
    • Note – if you are a finalist for the Ultimate Champion title and don’t have a pass for Saturday, don’t worry, we’ll make sure you can get into NYCC to compete!
  • On Sunday, we will have a tournament as well and award a Daily Champion, however this day does not qualify for the Ultimate Championship

Tournament Rules:


  • All entrants must show the MCoC booth team their roster to enter the tournament or learn the basics at our demo station
  • If you beat the Pre-Qualifier boss, you will be given one ticket to proceed to the Qualifiers and one ticket to spin the Prize Wheel
  • You can attempt this as many times as you like, however, after each turn you will need to return to the back of the line (hold onto your ticket!)


  • To gain entry you must successfully beat the boss in the Pre-Qualifiers, and show your Pre-Qualifier ticket to the MCoC booth staff
  • You can attempt this as many times as you like, however after each turn you will need to return to the back of the Qualifier line. Just make sure you hang on to your Pre-Qualifier ticket to show the MCoC booth staff.
  • If you successfully beat the boss, you must notify the booth staff who will then record your name and stats on the leaderboard (only the top 5 will be shown). Winners are determined by:
    • Successfully beating the boss
    • Time spent to beat the boss
    • Remaining health percentage on your Champion
  • Each day, the top 3 players must come back to the MCoC booth to get ready for the Daily Championship. You will encounter a different boss to beat for this, so be prepared to alter your strategy! (Players must show up 15 min prior to Daily Championships start)
  • The winner of each Daily Championship will be expected to attend on the Saturday for the final tournament to become the 2018 MCoC Ultimate NYCC Champion. If needed, MCoC staff will ensure that you can gain entry to NYCC for this (ie: you only have a pass for one of the four days)

*Kabam reserves the right to change the bosses in these challenges to ensure a fair and exciting competition. We expect you to behave with respect and courtesy towards your fellow competitors and our staff.*
