Adepticon 2019 Recap Pt. 1

Image result for adepticon 2019

Hey everyone, I linked up with my buddy Jason Thompson who participated in the Batman Tournament at Adepticon this year and he was cool enough to share some info with us. I would have loved to attend myself, but being in California I can really only afford to make it out that way once a year for Tournament purposes, and for 2019 I’ll be using that time to make it out to Renegade. Let’s see what Jason had to show us from the tournament.

Jason came in 4th with his Ivy crew, stating that it “was a 2-list event with 28 players”. Though Jason had mentioned to me that a good portion of the players were newer to the game, 4th in a tournament of this size is a significant victory, and for that I’m clapping my hand on my chest right now #SelfClap. Awesome job Jason! He was also kind enough to provide us with a pie chart of the represented crews at Adepticon; in addition we also have every list, but we’ll dive into the top 4.

As you can see above, Brave and the Bold was the most represented at the tournament. With Penguin, Court of Owls and Bane tied up for the next most represented crews. You’ll also notice from the chart that there a few crews not represented at Adepticon. Those crews are: Militia, Suicide Squad, Society, Bat-Family and The Amazons.
