    First MultiVersus tournament ends in $10k upset as underdogs break Bugs/Velma meta

    Sweeping the best of five finals 3-0, players NAKAT and VoiD have upset the expectations of everyone by winning MultiVersus’ first big tournament at EVO 2022. Why was it such an upset? The duo did so by employing characters that are off-meta, ones rarely listed as high-tier on common character rankings. 

    Six of the teams in the top eight had Velma, while three had Bugs Bunny. Everyone agreed that it was one of the top combos available, with statistics saying that Bugs was far and away a favorite among the top competitors in the game. (opens in new tab) Velma is the ideal support, with heat-seeking word bubbles and a megaphone attack with near-unlimited range. Bugs, meanwhile, has superb zoning to edge out opponents. 

    NAKAT and VoiD knew that, as their grand finals opponents RoseJ and mirrorman had knocked them down into the losers’ bracket in a 1-3 round earlier that day. “I’m not surprised,” said mirrorman in a bit of (to be clear, friendly (opens in new tab)) smack talk after the round.

    “It’s easy to say that when you main Bugs and Velma. Don’t worry, runback incoming,” tweeted (opens in new tab) NAKAT in response.
