Champs we can all agree will never make it to 6*..and you should therefore R5

Due to expiring resources I was looking at champs I might take to R5 which i wouldn't do under normal circumstances. I then got to thinking..what champs will NEVER be released as 6 stars are therefore worthy of being taken to R5 on that merit alone. The following champs came to mind:

Magick
Ghost Rider
Dr Voodoo
Thor OG
Medusa (Although many would R5 anyway)
Archangel
Iceman
Was also thinking Rogue? (Although I think she might get a six star release)

What other champs do you think will never be made as 6 star and are now worth R5 as a result.

    Magik is rank 5 worthy regardless of her being released as a 6* or not.

    Are these the champs you have? Do you have quake?

    I find aa and magik very useful for end game content. Depending on nodes, paths, and gate requirements etc...

    Magik is rank 5 worthy regardless of her being released as a 6* or not.

    I would say shes borderline. The fact that shes never going to be a 6* certainly makes it more attractive now

    Quake and Hyperion

    I'd argue they were always worthy. So long as you can 'quake and bake'

    I hope they just release them all but quake seems least likely to me, she’s be sooooo strong as a 6 star and has 0 reliance on the dupe

    I hope so too but i think 6 stars and gates are kabams way of wiping the slate clean and 'nerfing' those champs for future content. There's no doubt in my mind they regret releasing champs like Blade an Quake. I'm amazed they actually released Ghost, Corvus and Domino as six stars. @TheKiryu made a great video on this.

    I think there's no reason kabam will not release any champs as 6* (except maybe Quake).

    Blade, Magik, Hyperion, AA, Iceman etc while powerful would not break the game or anything when you already have Corvus, Aegon, Ghost, Doom etc available as 6*

    None of them have potential to dominate like Scarlet as a 4 star can. I'm hoping she will one day. She will be a huge arena score if she ever comes in arena.
    I tend to be one of the people that think current champions would outdo her. Definitely better than the ones I mentioned previously, but I see some champs as better than her already.

    The ones that suck. I have a suspicion that the featured addition policy will change once all the garbage champs are in and all that’s left are the studs.

    Don’t count your chickens. I doubt they release her or wolverine as 6 stars.

    I think the reason is they can’t because then they would become too powerful

    Quake, Hype and Magik sadly

    Why exactly won’t these champs be released as 6 stars? Because they’re older champs or because be game breaking to a extent?

    I’m not counting on Sparky being added any time soon.
  • spaceoctopusspaceoctopus Posts: 1,093 ★★★
    I’ll end up taking Crossbones to r5 for this reason also, even though I could see him becoming a 6*

    Sorry I couldn’t think to put it all in one post, also Voodoo, and I might be mistaken on this, Black Widow.

    Blade.

    I could see all of these become 6*s when 7*s come out. I could even see a Ice Man and Doctor Voodoo become 6*s soon as they aren't broken like Cull and Corvus who are 6*s. I could even see Blade and Stark Spidey becoming one soon.
