Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 5: Charles Cornick vs. Vlad

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 5: Charles Cornick vs. Vlad It’s all about the veterans in Round 5 of the Alpha Showdown.

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 3: Kate Daniels vs. Bones

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 3: Kate Daniels vs. Bones We told you from the start that the Alpha Showdown would be brutal. We’re only three matches in, and we’ve already had to make tough choices. Round 2 is still open, and it’s very close between Jane and Barrons. Kate Daniels isn’t scared of a vampire, but we doubt Bones is scared of anything. He’s battled some heavy hitters before. In an alternate universe, these two would...
