I'm Genuinely Curious

I'm making this post because I legitimately want to know what people value more in a champion.

Would you rather have a champion with great damage but bad utility, or a champion with great utility but bad damage?

    What would be a champ you would consider “all damage no utility”


    If I had a champ that had zero description of how to play him. No special abilities at all. But hit 30,000-40,000 basic hits as a six star rank 1 I’d easily take that champ.

    It really depends more on the individual.

    But champions need a balance of both.
    Damage, no Utility, you're looking at someone like Domino.
    Utility, No Damage, you're looking at.... maybe Iceman?
    I'd say a great example of both Damage and Utility is Stealthy.
    I'd personally prefer Utility over Damage.

    No utility but great damage you get cull obsidian
    No damage but decent utility you get maw or king groot

    I have a 6* KG. His damage in 3+ fury phase is quite nice. His sp2 poison hits quite hard aswell. But yeah, you're right

    Star Lord is all damage and no utility. I still like him tbh but he could definitely use a buff.

    That's a bad question, as both in the extremes are horrid champs. A pure damage champ would be someone like Symbiote Spidey, and a pure utility Champ would be someone like Hood, but neither are used extensively in content. A balance of both is needed.

    If we’re talking threshold, Quake is it for Utility, while CGR is it for practical damage
  • Rouger4Rouger4 Posts: 615 ★★★
    A balanced champ is always best but I would say utility would help me more and would clear more content but I would prefer damage for the fun factor and satisfaction.

    Utility
    Many different factors comes into play. There r champs like CGR whose damage is so high that u wont need a utility to finish a fight. And there is also dormammu who have a lot of utility but still no one like him . And there is also voyant who have better damage but the same utility. So i think damage can work alone to finish a fight. In my opinion high damage itself is a utility. No one prefers a utility only champ but there r many champs everyone considers to be good just becuz of the damage. I actually thought abt it after voting utility. Now i want to go for damage.

    Utility
    Although I like to play those champs with high damage, the game design makes utility champs shine most of the time.

    One simple thing, your team is limited by 3 (AQ/AW) or 5 (SQs,EQ). Only duel or arena allows you to ignore utility.

    I prefer ending a fight in 30 seconds before any utility is needed, than take 5 minutes to do it properly.

    Also, both. A champion with only one of the 2 is seriously disadvantaged in the current state of the game. Just damage is rarely enough anymore, and just utility was never enough to begin with

    Also, important to note: Quake is the utility goddess of the game. Whatever fight a champion can do, quake can likely do it as well. So if that champ takes longer than quake, barely anybody's gonna use them, because they could just quake it. All utility champions need to have at least as much DPS as Quake, or they're gonna be close to irrelevant

    (This is obviously a generalization, there may be a few exceptions. But it's generally true)

    He still has SOME utility. Not none.
