Posted July 16th, 2018 at 05:11 AM by HS Codex

C3G Strategy Guide

Uniqueness – Unique Hero.
Class – Rookie (this synergy is still new and developing, and somewhat on the weak side, but it does exist in the shape of Speed, Vision (Jonas), and Patriot).
Personality – Sarcastic (instantly causes me to warm to the character, but has no mechanical effect).
Size/Height – Medium

Who are you really?
John. Not “Johnny” anymore, except to family—that’s what you get for signing up to a website when you’re 13 years old! I go as “jph139” on other forums, because I’m one of those weird people that still posts on forums.

25 years old. Next September, I’ll have spent 50% of my life posting on this website.

What is your occupation?
Bank stuff. Fraud, mostly. It’s boring, next question.
