Summoners!

Here’s your Marvel Contest of Champions news brief for Thursday, April 14, 2022.

Schedule Notes: Round 1 of the Ghost Rider Basic Arena and Black Cat Featured Arena begin at 1pm EST.










Per the Kabam Foums, please note the following Alliance War issue: “There is currently an issue in Alliance War where the Challenger Map is using the Tactics for the Expert Map, making Unstoppable Armor the only selectable Tactic. The team is working on a fix but, since some Alliances have already placed their Defenders, we will be leaving the Map as is for the time being.”
