    But then again people took up Falcon and Hulkbuster and are now happy with it or at least satisfied

    I’d say rank 3 him now, then make the jump to rank 4/rank 5 after you’ve seen the buff and done some testing with it

    Your choice, I’m gonna R5 kingpin before his buff since he’s alright already.

    Keep in mind that sentry, ebony maw, juggernaut, rhino, and black bolt have all been buffed.

    That's a little harsh. Of those, only Maw has been through a recent, proper 'buff' process.

    Sentry, Juggs, Rhino and B Bolt had small changes made more than three years ago; before they started to get the process right with the Red Hulk/Luke Cage reworks.

    Still, unless you've literally got T5B expiring in your stash, I'd wait to see the buffs in February, myself. Or follow @Scopeotoe987's advice; as Kingpin is already useable (if a bit over-situational), and it wouldn't take that much to make him a really decent champ.

    I don’t think you should ever prematurely rank up a champion because they’re getting a tune up. Just wait and see what happens first

    Otherwise you'll be here in Feb going "Can I have rankdown tickets for my r5 Yellowjacket bc I don't like his buff"

    Take him to r4 but then only level him up halfway to r5 with iso.

    Use basic iso too while r4.

    I personally don’t understand ranking up champions BEFORE their buff,but you do you

    If you enjoy playing with him, then yes.
    A buff won’t make him worse.

    Please take him up. And then, when the buff is terrible come back here and blame Kabam.
    What I will gain from this? Entertainment

    But Why, @But_why
    You don't know how happy I was when the Daredevil buff came out. People had taken him to rank 5, and then they asked from Kabam for rank down tickets. I hope this happens again with Yellowjacket

    I have the 6* science awakening gem and the 6* version, praying he's good. I hope he ends up being a mix of Spider-Ham and Wasp

    Don’t make the same mistake I did with Daredevil. Just go r3 first

    Seriously, have people not learned the lesson yet? If you like the champ, then rank them UT if you are wanting to rank because a buff is on the way, ALWAYS wait for the buff to drop.

    This is dumb, who said he's gonna be good just stated his kit had to be completely redone... I was watching Seatins V6 live run and Kabam John didn't state anything significant toward any champ except one, and I quote "I think alot of people will be surprised by his damage" that was about Terrax. He maybe the only one who interest me even if a flop he's annoying defender.

    The answer is always wait until the buff to rank someone up

    My 6* unawakened YJ will be the proof of that pudding.

    Yet nothing can beat buff update of Magneto. That guy is a blast

    I have pushed my Yellow to R4 (with RankUp Gems rotting in my inventory anyway).

    But your decision ... depends on your roster and ressources.
