Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Kingpin is the third best skill champion in the game and it isn’t even close

New buffs notes look sick. MASSIVE damage in overpower mode coupled with the heavy fury will make for BIG yellow numbers and will reduce any opponent to dust. Possible debuff IMMUNITY with the Hood synergy is even a greater boost to his already STACKED utility. Kingpin is about to be the TRUE successor to Nick and Ægon, mark my words. I don’t even need more paragraphs because his power speaks for itself.

    At the very least, he is leagues more playable than pre-buff. I'm pretty excited to see his actual performance so I can rank this dude up:



    Always wanted a high performance skill champ that's suicide-friendly, and I have played around with Kingpin's power lock synergy before.

    While his buff won’t make him better than skill corvus, he will definitely be better than Elsa.

    He'll definitely be

    How is she top 5 with Nick Aegon Killmonger Stealthy Falcon Hit Monkey and Night thrasher? I agree with KD she's scratching top 15
    She's better or equal to all those champs you listed except falcon she is worse then falcon.

    Legit is a worse night thrasher, similar kit but he has AA reduction and incinerate immunity while she helps people with intercepting ig
    She has high dps, evade counter shrugs off non dot. High crit chance

    Elsa is better than Killmonger, stealth, hit monkey, and night thrasher?

    Killmonger explanation hotline: @Rockypantherx
    Hit Monkey explanation hotline: @DannyB01
    Stealthy explanation hotline: @KDSuperFlash10
    Night Thrasher explanation hotline: @TheManMythLegend
    I know the hotlines and I said better or equal. I ain't having this disrespect on elsa.
    Not disrespectful if it’s facts


    #GamersAgainstElsa
    Killmonger is overrated
    Not disrespectful if its facts
    #GamersAgainstKillmonger
    That’s just wrong

    #GamersAgainstGamers
    So is elsa being overrated but here we are.
    #GamersAgainstGamers
    I dont think she is overrated necessarily, but she definitely isnt top 5. And FYI, after messing with my Moleman tomorrow i might declare him a stronger champion than Ronin🙊.(And thus, better than Elsa)
    Does that mean a pfp change? Lol

    I'll be honest
    I forgot gewnpool was even a skill champion...

    1. Nick
    2. Ægon
    3. Kingpin (maybe)
    4. Falcon
    5. Elsa

    Remove kingpin from that list till we can see the numbers. Elsa>Killmonger . Elsa>Bwdo,Taskmaster,Night trasher

    Elsa=Ronin.

    In all honesty, you guys cant truly think that right? Ill admit despite my doofy arguing Ronin probably isnt top 5, and i know that.
    I never said top 5 :)
  • FaseehFaseeh Posts: 2,686 ★★★★★
    But top 15? Keep dreaming. Definitely top 7-8

    Going from Karatemiike's review of the Kingpin buff... his words have me convinced he's approaching top 5 skill. He said that Kingpin hits very hard and from the looks of his abilities, as long as Hood is on the team Kingpin can most likely shrug any debuff every .5 secs (which is a very short duration) and still gain rage during overpower. I believe his overpower actually shrugs 8 debuffs on him not just the rage debuffs anymore so that might be interesting as well. But comparing him to Nick Fury... I'm definitely leaning more towards Kingpin because of the willpower healing and debuff shrugging although Nick Fury does counter miss and autoblock.

    Edit: I have a 5/65 Kingpin so I can be one of the first to test which I'm hyped about

    I agree with Parts of this. Elsa and Ronin are around the same level but of course i choose Ronin. Killmonger has way more utility than Elsa. BWDO has higher damage but almost no utility. Tasky i agree, and. NT noooo way. He is a beast and a half.

    Yeah he regenerates from his own rage debuffs like DDHK except he shrugs any debuffs or poisons inflicted on him.
