Obviously in the meta of the game both are important, but which would you say gets the slight edge when considering ranking up a champion?

    I suspect this is as much based on your current skill level as your personal preference.

    Higher skill level - more effective evading, baiting and intercepting, so less need for power control. These players can take the risks involved with glass cannon champs like Wasp, Sparky and Rocket.

    Being a low-to-medium skill player I still value power control as my get-out-of-jail-free card.

    Ideally you want to have both. That's why my first two 5* r5 were Voodoo and Sparkey :smile:

    All day baby

    Baiting specials is annoying af

    Sometimes AI is in a bad mood and ive to spend like 40 seconds baiting in order to the enemy not reach Sp3, thats rly boring if u ask me. If Hyperion does that.. RIP

    I'm a raw damage kind of guy. Probably why I enjoy Iron Fist more than Magik.

    My inability to bait specials well leads me to say power control as my magic is probably my favourite

    BOTH! Dr. Vodoo keeps his pimp hand strong cause he likes pimp slapping the power snot out of opponents, with massive poision damage, power burn/drain, and regen FTW.

    Can’t go wrong by throwing in Life Steal to the mix. Awakened MS with 5 souls, bling-BLANG. Dorm too. Why not.

    I love to use control champs, but find it easier to use some heavy hitters vs stronger opponents, so fight won't last forever. also the one champ I associate with high dmg is sl

    These are all great arguments for each option.
