We’ve also got three new players, Dragonfei, Pandaman Pete, and Royal.Marshall, who have at least one (very BIG) thing in common: they love a good (exhausting, unconventional, magnificent) challenge!

Style of Play:
“I play very offensively and aggressively. I typically prefer to attack more than defend, opting to take risks in favor of doing more damage.”

Favorite Aspect of The Contest:
“I like challenges that make me think. Puzzles with unconventional solutions are my favorite… and whenever there’s some sort of problem that makes me take a step back and plan for it, I know I’m in for a good time.”


Royal.Marshall
Royal.Marshall: “I’m always in the game.”


Player Bio: Royal.Marshall
A huge “video game nerd who loves all types of games,” Royal.Marshall credits The Contest for improving his social skills. The “idea of being able to use so many of Marvel’s iconic heroes and villains in the palm of my hand” was something he enjoyed right away. A world where he felt comfortable talking with other players, “…about who would beat up whom.” “Such a simple yet relatable situation.”

Top 3 Champions:
Void

Style of Play:
“I enjoy every character, so it’s hard to pin down any one specific style of play. I look at the game as a strategy fighter; looking at what’s required to pass certain obstacles, while also keeping the characters I use diverse.”

Favorite Aspect of The Contest:
The Contest’s amazing community and because he’s always like more direct competitive games, “…the chance to be able to compete with other people head to head is a win enough in my book. If I do win, I’ll take the opportunity to thank Kabam for creating such an amazing world for us to explore.”
