2017 Champions

Anybody else feel a few of the champ's abilities in 2017 were rushed? For example, Dormammu, Hood, Punisher 2099, Vulture, Howard the Duck, and Cable. Each of these champs should've had way better abilities imo. They just do not feel like their comic book counterparts at all. It felt like they slapped on a few dubuffs and regens here and there and called it a day. Remember this was the same year that Hyperion, Iceman, AA, Starky, Medusa and Blade came out on. Even Taskmaster and Modok were well thought out.

    I can agree that they may not seem like their comic book selves but I disagree that that were rushed. I feel like Kabam does a fantastic job with most of the champions they introduce to the game and the good thing about this game is that any champion is always subject to reworks. We can only hope that they change some of the champions that we feel lack in certain areas where others exceed and make champions a little more balanced.

    Not really. There's always a range of Champs released. Different strengths, different uses. They're not all "God Tier". The comparison game is always a losing one.

    Some champs are good and others are duds. Not every champ can be top tier.

    Keep in mind I never said I dont like that they aren't god tier. That's why I said Modok and Taskmaster were well thought out. I said I dont like their abilities because they all have few abilities or abilities that are questionable based on their comic book abilities. Cable for instance has no telepathic abilities and Dormammu doesn't really have his comic book powers, he just power controls. Compare that to starky who's main ability is to evade or blade's which is a reliance on blood.

    Dormammu has his own mechanic involving dark energy and his L3 gives him a dimensional link buff that continually gives him dark energy. Vulture harnesses the power of his suit to do various things like harness energy. I’ll admit that HtD isn’t all that impressive. He’s just a weird Ultron with a different model but I think him and Hyperion were 2016 weren’t they?

    You are correct. They were both December 2016 champs

    I feel like Dorm and Hood were both really well done and have some pretty in-depth abilities. But I can kinda see where you’re getting at with the others, balance I guess...

    Quite the opposite really.

    Howard the Duck should never of been in any mechanical suit. He is the master of Quack-Fu
