Class Matchups

Hey all, I have seen some discussions about hybrid class champs, hybrid champs, and even should x champ be y class, but I haven’t seen any discussion on the matchups themselves. It seems like an interesting discussion to have. Only the seasoned summoner will probably remember the original matchups which was skill>tech>mutant>science>mystic>cosmic>skill. I’m pretty sure everyone knows the current matchup of skill>science>mystic>cosmic>tech>mutant>skill.

Do you think the original matchups look more accurate? Do you think the current matchups sound better? Or do you think that they should be changed? I’m interested to hear what matchups you think make more sense and why. For example I think science and skill should be reversed. I think science should have an advantage over skill because science champs are typically modified and enhanced beyond the power of a typical skill champ. As a lot of people have mentioned on forums it would be laughable to think Hawkeye or BW would take down Hulk.

    woah woah wait why did the matchups used to look like that? i cant make sense of the logic behind the old matchups? also on your science/skill thing i would have to agree but think it should stay the same because having mutant weak to skill wouldnt make much more sense and the only other class i think might make sense is if skill beat tech.

    I think the current class advantage is "easier" to understand if viewed generally. Science owns Mystic. How? Sorcerer's Apprentice ;)

    That leaves by default Skill owns Science. :#

    I have always thought the new set made more sense: if you take a human at face value, their capabilities are what give you skill class; mutants have better "natural" abilities. On the other hand, tech can pretty much do anything so mutants are still at a genetic disadvantage because their abilities dont really have an off switch. But if modern technology can do cool stuff, extraterrestrial technology must be even better. But nothing can beat mystical abilities... except the explanation of magic by science.

    I am still stuck on the logic behind skill beats science though...

    As far as the old system goes, I can see how mutant would beat science: as much as we know about science, some things just escape us even today, and mutants would be one of them if they were real. Cosmic beating skill is almost cheating. Of course cosmic is better. But skill beats tech???
  • I always thought some champs ought to be of a different class:

    gamora ought to be skill (TRAINED assassin), goblin science (fancy badass science gas) and, considering what you have to do to get a 4/5* version, Unst. Col. ought to be both mutant and mystic. Still not sure i like blade as a skill... he IS a vampire.
  • This is a cool philosophical discussion. Dont find much of that these days. Thx for posing the question!

    I would point out that if you look at BWs second special, the laws of physics are not enforced. Taking down hulk is the least of our "crooked pictureframes".

    I guess you could argue that the Skill people don't waste time figuring out the equations like scientists do. Instead they just whack you and move on...?
