Style of Play:
I play for fun but like to be competitive. I don’t like being very aggressive unless it’s necessary, so I let the AI get aggressive then counter what they do.”

Favorite Aspect of The Contest:
“There is a good social aspect to Marvel and I have been blessed to have played with some amazing people since I started the game.” “Meeting people that I would have never met if it wasn’t for The Contest.”



Player Bio: Ms. Insomnia
“I play strictly for fun even though it feels like a full-time job…”
Ms. Insomnia says. “I don’t read nodes, I run through quests with whatever Champions I feel like using that day, I take my top Champions to harder quests, or I just listen to the advice of others.”

Top 3 Champions:
Domino
Doctor Voodoo
Hyperion

The social component is clearly what keeps me active and involved. I thrive on helping alliances and individual members of the community.”

Favorite Aspect of The Contest:
MCoC has a large ecosystem of players who chat on various forums…it’s enjoyable to share experiences with others from all over the world.”
