Is cap IW top 5 in mcoc?

People always talk about ghost, omega and namor, but I rarely see them talking about Cap IW. He’s my candidate for 2nd 5* rank 5 and he’s so amazingly versatile and durable. If you play perfectly, he can take zero damage during a fight, dish out massive damage, apply petrify and armor breaks, and can also purify debuffs (high signature level). Is he worth it? Definitely considering him as number 1 since he’s helped me with 6.2 so much

    I would say he is certainly one of the best. As you point out, he is arguably the most versatile (maybe Warlock comes close) amd has use in just about every mode of the game. I have him at 5/65 sig 200 and he is used all over the place for me.

    Between him and Corvus, who would you R4 as a 5 star? Both unawakened

    I was just asking my alliance today who I should r5 next Ghost, CapIW, Havok, Hyperion or VTD and I’m leaning more towards CapIW because he just so good.

    @Manup456 ghost is probably still number one in the game, but I feel burdened bringing synergies for her. Cap IW just needs a specific class teammate and he’s good to go. Cap IW is more versatile and durable in my opinion. However for variant 3, ghost is definitely the better option

    @INTEGRAL care to explain? There’s no champ that comes close in terms of versatility. The damage is high, but not as high as some of the tops

    I would say at least top 10. And he is the best for the final champion boss

    If you have all the 5* synergies for Ghost.... rank her over CapIW. I have them both at R5 and Ghost is an absolute monster.

    Top 10, not top 5 though.

    My criteria is AW. Almost noone in top alliances uses Cap IW on attack. Nobody is using him in AQ.

    He is a very useful champ but you barely see people use him in hardest contents.

    Omega, Corvus, Ghost, Domino, Havok, Blade, Stark Spiderman, Quake, Thing, Namor, Magik are the first names I remember that are better in usefulness than Cap IW. If I check all champs I am sure I will find 3-5 more champs.
    Ghost, Quake, Omega, Corvus, Namor, and Thing are better. Magik only does one thing, Starky's flimsy and is getting left behind in the meta (I see Beardo used more than him), Havok isn't even on his level utility-wise, and Blade has too many champs immune to him. I don't see him used at the top of the meta much anymore. Beardo has perfect parry, the heal reversal in game, counters unstoppable, and has lots of other bits and bobs of utility. He's also a top 2 options for the Champion fight in 6.2. He still gets used a fair bit.

    I have Ghost, Corvus, Cap IW, Domino, Omega Red, Blade, Sparky, Ghulk, and Thing at 5/65, and I use Cap IW as much or more than just about all of them. Like any "best champ" question, the answer will vary on the matchup, but there is not much that Cap IW cannot do.
  • Spoonmanaron2Spoonmanaron2 Posts: 32
    I think he's top 5 for sure. If you go for quantity of use, I use him and Corvus more than Sparky, Blade, and OR. However Blade still puts in a lot of fights because of the regen. CapIW may be the best blend of utility for problem fights in addition to quantity of use. Not one champ is a clear #1 but I personally put him top 5.

    @INTEGRAL literally everyone is disagreeing with you. It doesn’t matter what your opinion is, only how much a champions use matters. How does magik have more utility or damage than cap? And immunities? Nope. Havok only has incinerate immunity, Cap can be immune to anything with kinetic charges. Havok has no form of high durability or utility. Sparky has utility and damage but no immunities and terrible block proficiency and durability for longer quests. Corvus needs many fights to ramp up before he can start hitting hard enough. Ghost needs her synergies to get her max potential. You’re providing very little fact and just saying your opinion is right

    Cap has a 100% chance to shrug off debuffs, reverse healing and armor break on parry at max sig. perfect block on parry, insane damage output and some of the best synergies in the game. what top alliance is not using cap iw? None of the champs you listed are better than cap. I’ll do you one better. If you can do any of one of these fights with the champs you listed better than cap you win the video game

    MY Top 10 in no particular order:

    Corvus
    Ghost
    Cap IW
    Void
    Archangel
    Domino
    Stark spidey
    Aegon
    Venom the Duck
    Darkhawk

    No experience with Omega Red or Namor yet. Nick Fury would be an honorable top ten mention. Blade as well. Captain Marvel Movie top 15.

    I have every single one of those champs as an R4 or R5 5* or a duped 6* (with the exception of Archangel who I have had at Rank 3 forever). Brie Larsen is easily top 10 and possibly Top 5.

    My ten (no order): CapIW
    Void
    Domino
    Ghost
    Aegon
    Brie Larsen
    Omega
    Namor
    Cull (prefer him over Corvus for use against massive health pool champs)

    I still use my 4 star in variant over other 5 star champs due to his perfect block and amazing heavy(the more you play him, the more intervals you have of weaving in those heavies without parrying which is one of his biggest drawbacks imo)

    I use blade and stark spider for everything. Stark clears out fight so easy. I don’t know how you think he’s flimsy. And blade is still awesome.
