Another year of Origins Game Fair has come and gone. The competitive metagame has been established and all of the top players prepared to travel to the convention and put their skills and wits to the test. At the end of the day, one victor emerged. Congratulations to the 2020 Heroclix National Champion — Coronavirus!
Beginning play only as recently as December of 2019, Corona grew quickly and began traveling around the world making stops in South Korea and Italy before making the trip over to the United States for Origins Game Fair.
Coronavirus decimated all competition along the path to victory with a SARS-CoV-2 one-many army team. The team made use of a strong lock-down mechanic that slows down the opponent while also powerfully decreasing their stats. It was a metagame shift that many players didn’t see coming and were ill-prepared as a result.
Coronavirus is set on attending the World Championship later this year. Time will tell if the other top-level players are able to develop a counter-measure to stop the disruption and end the hot streak.
