The two of them finally meet in person during an official tournament, where they bond and become friends.

However, things take a turn when Quincy accidentally wins the tournament, and as a result, he becomes the face of the game's new company, CUBE. Chris, Quincy's new friend, gets jealous of him since she believes he is hogging the attention and recognition of her favorite game. In an attempt to take him down, Chris begins to compete against him so that she could become the new face of the company.

She secretly hacks into his account and changes his character's appearance, leading to his significant loss of followers and fans. She challenges him to a new match so that the winner gets to keep the company contract, and Quincy and Chris are forced to work together to defeat another expert gamer, Dmitri (Amir Talai), who has been hired by CUBE to take down Quincy.
