    Are you a fan of the Marvel movies? Comics? Cartoons? What made you pick up Marvel Contest of Champions?
    Marvel’s Multiverse is what I love to watch and read, especially as I am a fan of the MCU and connected TV series (loved to watch every Netflix and ABC productions). I am also collecting comics, but need to limit it due to their size. I started to play Marvel Contest of Champions a few years ago – saw gameplay in advertising.

    What is one of your favorite in-game moments? (Specific fight, war matchup, one shot, etc)
    Believe or not, but my favorite fights were the best attempts on Silver Surfer and Infinity War Iron Man on Showdown. I am happy that I could record them and keep on my YT channel. Will go back to watching for sure!

    What alliance are you in (if any!) and why do you love it?
    Nex Level is my game’s home from the beginning. Alliance with story and tradition. I was the second and fourth leader, but management is not for me – I prefer smashing. Huge respect to Vixus Vengeance, GrimReaper-70 and Okizze – leaders of Nex Level!

    What’s the history behind your in-game name?
    It was my nickname I received in junior secondary school. It refers to Special Weapons And Tactics. The letter U, I added for fun!

    What character would you love to see join Marvel Contest of Champions?
    Captain Mar-Vell

    What keeps you hooked on the game and coming back for more?
    My alliance friends mostly. The game itself is amazing and I love that it is very complicated, but even the best game would be boring without people you can share your achievements with. Important reason is also that I can talk in English language with them often, so my English is continuing to improve.

    What is your favorite game mode (AQ, AW, Arena, Incursions, etc), and why?
    Alliance Wars because this is a true test for the alliance. However it is tough to organize all things connected with wars properly, so huge respect to those who are doing it (yes Dark Soul-07, it includes you as well).

    What moment are you most proud of in the game, outside of qualifying for the semi-finals?
    The moment of full exploration of Abyss without Ægon and Nick Fury. It was super satisfactory.

    Have you done the Abyss? If so, favorite and least favorite fights? Any tips for those yet to complete it?
    My favorite fight was against Masacre, really enjoyed the idea behind that fight. Least favorite fight was against Green Goblin. I had really bad time and got stuck there, with no way to back after without wasting resources. When it comes to tips for others, I made a video where I explained specifically whom I used against whom and how many revives I used in certain fights. You can find it on my Youtube.

    What motivates you to do challenges like this one? Any highlights from this one that you want to call out?
    Well, for sure well-designed fights. I enjoyed the 1st and 3rd round of qualifiers the most. If I wouldn’t, then I would skip it.

    Everyone loves advice from an expert - what advice would you give new players, and on the same hand, what advice would you give to a new Cavalier player looking to advance their account?
    The best advice I can give is patience. This is key to becoming an end game player one day. Thanks to patience I grew up as a player individually and with my alliance. The moment when you learn how to Parry is crucial. Add to it the moment, when you learn how to use Dexterity, the game is slowly becoming yours. And then there are tougher things – learning ability names, all term nomenclature, Champions’ abilities and specific specials’ timing to avoid (like the Special 2 of Captain Marvel Movie in the second round of qualifiers, ouch), node interactions, the best mastery setup, etc. But it is satisfactory once you do.

    Most unusual place for a crystal pull? Was it lucky?
    To be honest – I can’t recall. Personally I am opening mostly in a normal way. But of course it is fun to do rituals with openings, it can add some entertainment to it.

    Last but not least - if you could ask for one thing in The Contest, what would it be?
    I would ask for 100 additional wishes! But now, to be absolutely serious – I wish that alliances could be expanded by few people (I have 5 in my mind). Often when alliances play three battlegroups and one member can’t play due to personal justified reasons, alliances take harm in Alliance War.

    Additionally, there are some people in alliances who do not like Alliance War, and if your alliance is war focused, there are two options – 1) The player is playing it just to stay with friends, or 2) The player is leaving, just to not hold back his friends. I believe that expanding spaces in alliance would help solve this problem.

    Are you a fan of the Marvel movies? Comics? Cartoons? What made you pick up Marvel Contest of Champions?
    Yes, I'm a huge fan of the franchise since the first X-Men movie in 2000! A friend of mine introduced me to the game back in 2015.

    What is one of your favorite in-game moments? (Specific fight, war matchup, one shot, etc)

    One of my favourite in-game moments is probably the first time I took down Maestro in the Labyrinth of Legends. I did it in 6 revives with my first rank 5 5-Star Stark Enhanced Spider-Man.

    What alliance are you in (if any!) and why do you love it?
    I'm in the alliance Artillery X-Men. I love it because we all share the same love for the game, whilst helping each other out and working together as a team.

    What’s the history behind your in-game name?
    It's the name of a side character in one of my favorite book series called "Skulduggery Pleasant".

    What character would you love to see join Marvel Contest of Champions?
    I´d love to see Quicksilver join the Contest. The slow motion scene in X-Men Days of the Future Past is one of the funniest and coolest scenes in the whole movies series.

    What keeps you hooked on the game and coming back for more?
    I love to do new content and be able to bring different Champions into upcoming challenges and never seen before game modes.

    What is your favorite game mode (AQ, AW, Arena, Incursions, etc), and why?
    I really like the Boss Rush challenges and side event quests like the current Convention Clash.

    What moment are you most proud of in the game, outside of qualifying for the semi-finals?
    The first time I beat the Grandmaster in 6.4 and the original Champion boss in 6.2, as I think these fights were, and are very challenging.

    Have you done the Abyss? If so, favorite and least favorite fights? Any tips for those yet to complete it?
    I haven't had the time to hop into the Abyss as of now, but I'm looking to do an initial run later this year or early next year.

    What motivates you to do challenges like this one? Any highlights from this one that you want to call out?
    I really like to test myself in these kinds of challenges as I'm having fun testing out Champions and interactions as well as being a very competitive person in general.

    Everyone loves advice from an expert - what advice would you give new players, and on the same hand, what advice would you give to a new Cavalier player looking to advance their account?
    For new players: Don't sweat about being behind in the Contest and not being able to complete all the challenges right away. If you have every character and done every single challenge there is nothing to look forward to. Get your masteries unlocked ASAP! Before you look up videos from content creators on how to play a match up or overcome a certain challenge think for yourself and try things out. That in my opinion is how you learn and improve most in this game. Also don't underestimate the smaller channels on youtube, they put out a lot of great content!

    For Cavalier players: Take a look at your existing roster and your challenges ahead. Which content is doable for you? What characters are you missing to complete a specific challenge? Don't rush into difficult fights that will cost you a lot of units if you come unprepared.

    Most unusual place for a crystal pull? Was it lucky?
    I can't remember an unusual place to open up a crystal, but I remember buying 5-star Ægon Cavalier crystals and getting him as a 5* Champion, bringing me one step closer to running the Abyss for the first time.

    Last but not least - if you could ask for one thing in The Contest, what would it be?
    Having more challenges like the Nameless Thanos fight or the Grandmaster in 6.4!
