Contest History[]

Win-Loss Record: 0-3

Summer 2007 Contest - Division 6 - Second Group

Frank's first appearance went as expected, finishing in no-man's land between second and fourth places.

Summer 2008 Contest - Division 4 - First Group

Frank West returned to action and once again came in third, thanks to sharing the poll with another fodder character. He still didn't do very well, though, and with Dead Rising 2 featuring a new main character, things aren't looking too good for him.

Frank made the Winter 2010 Vote-In Polls, but he did poorly enough that he was unable to make the main bracket.

Summer 2013 Contest - Division 2 - 24 Seed

  • Division 2 Round 1 --- 3rd place, 3015 [10.86%] - (15) Sub-Zero, 13612 [49.02%] - (4) Garrus Vakarian, 11143 [40.13%]

This is what happens to a weak character when their game becomes forgotten. Frank never had much strength, but easily getting quadrupled by Sub-Zero makes him even more pathetic. Unless he is present in a new game if he never shows up for a contest it will be too soon.
