Sensible Rank 2, 6-Star Options! - My Own Opinion

Going to quickly note that this is my personal opinion and you don't have to like the same Champions that I do or dislike the Champions that I dislike. Just tell me your opinion on a certain Champion that makes you think it's worthy of rank 2 as a 6-Star!
I also hope that the image below isn't too big and blurry OR too small and not visible, crossing my fingers though!



I know what some of you are thinking. Why has he said that he wouldn't rank 2 Emma Frost, Ice Man or Elsa? And why has he said he would rank 2 Phoenix, Guillotine, Storm, Doctor Octopus and Old Man Logan??

Well it's simple really? I don't really like Emma Frost or Elsa, and Ice Man isn't needed as a 6-Star if you have a 5-Star maxed out.
ALSO, Phoenix is fun to play with, Guillotine has some really nice damage, Storm has always been one of my favorite X-Men and i don't think Kabam failed as badly with her as everyone might think, Doctor Octopus is so much fun to play with in general questing like EQ and sometime even AQ. Ah and Yes, Old Man Logan, well Old Man Logan is very solid with his damage, regen and his unblockable sp1.

Tell me who you think i'm wrong about and why!
Thanks!

    Carnage and VTD are in the same league, so if either one of them is R2 worthy...
    Cull Obsidian could be R2 worthy. The hype died but he's still a very solid champion.
    Elsa and Emma are very solid champions, definitely R2 worthy. Elsa was my MVP for so many fights.
    Hela depends really. Hela can do some heavy damage and Heimdall synergy makes unawakened NF playable.
    Ghulk is good for passive DoT. Wouldn't pick him as a first R2, but I wouldn't ignore him either.
    Iceman is very solid champion, he´s certainly R2 worthy.
    Killmonger and Masacre are a maybe. Really depends on your roster and needs.
    Night Trasher isn´t bad, he´s misunderstood.
    Phoenix is a big no for me.
    Psylocke is great now.
    Punisher 2099 is a R2 for me since the buff.
    She-Hulk and Spider-Gwen are great champions, R2 worthy for developed rosters.
    Silver Surfer has unique utility and great prestige. He's this month's MVP.
    Not a believer in Squirrel Girl.
    Star-Lord is finished. Definitely R1 stayer.
    Vision Aarkus is very underrated, he got so many base abilities that solve so many problems.
    Wasp is R2 worthy if you've Ghost.

    Why is namor there and with a blank star?

    Man-thing is the mystic equivalent of Korg.. so he can be annoying to fight in AW.. his hp is pretty beefy, if his attack was slightly higher he would be a good mystic.

    There is a lot on this list I disagree with.

    I have Elsa @ R3 and she’s fantastic.

    At R2 I also have Mr Fantastic, IMIW with zero regrets.

    And agree with above, Emma & KM definitely worth it. You could almost make the arguement for Sabretooth and NightTrasher too (he’s really good for map 7). Ive even seen quite a few R3 king groots recently.

    Good thread to throw out reasonable options for 6* rankups to R2 and potentially beyond.

    Based on champs readily available in 6* basic, here’s a list of champs worthy of consideration with a focus on those not necessarily needing to be awakened...

    Tech: Ghost, Warlock, G99, Sentinel, HB
    Mutant: Domino, Havok, Red Mags, Colossus, AA, Emma, Sunspot
    Skill: Ronin, Fury, KM, Stealth Spidey, Hit Monkey
    Science: CapIW, Thing, Torch
    Cosmic: CMM, Corvus, Prox, Venom
    Mystic: CV, Doom, LS, SymSup, Sorceror Supreme

    May have missed a couple. But I wouldn’t flinch at taking any of those champs to R2, most without the dupe.

    Why would you take Korg to rank 2? Geniunely curious here. Also TM kinda needs his dupe, and NT as well really needs his dupe. The rest I agree with

    The only I strongly disagree with is wasp. But that’s because I play ghost and run wasp for synergies. But because of that I love wasp herself too
  • YENANSASHESYENANSASHES Posts: 238 ★★
    most of this just depends on ur own roster, there are a lot that are worth rank up no matter what but for a lot of the cases it just depends on the person. there is no fixed list of r2 options.

    if ya dupe em, then the answer is clear. rank em up! ofc some on my list were options if I didn't have a Doom or Ghost, I'd be happy to go with them.

    For Korg, his damage output is really nice, just get an sp3, and start smashing. He's an autoblock counter since his unblockable last for a long enough time. He's not the flashiest champ, but he can put in work. I would mainly rank up for defense tho

    Cull IMIW are easy r2 worthy, and Falcon and Gambit will probably be.

    Korg with mojo and hulk rags is a really hard hitter that is tanky

    100% your opinion and to be honest, i'd take up a few of them too :)
  • StevieManWonderStevieManWonder Posts: 3,085 ★★★★★
    Punisher 2099 and Psylocke are both worth r3, let alone r2. So is Ronin. In fact, you have a lot of really solid champs marked as not worth r2.
  • PastorAmericaPastorAmerica Posts: 233 ★★
    Has anyone made an r3 list? That would be interesting to me.

    I personally think Namor is fine as a 5/65 5*. Doesn't need to be ranked as a 6*. Imo

    I see. But again, Korg really needs to be duped for that defense and even then unless you are playing pretty high tier war he doesn't deserve the r2 for defense. For attack, maybe if you really like him but I hate how he needs his synergies for the stacked armor break and his kit only offers a really small armor break for his damage
  • SungjSungj Posts: 1,865 ★★★★
    I'd completely understand if someone took;

    Annihilus
    Cable
    Carnage
    Cull
    Elsa
    Emma
    Hela
    Gladiator Hulk
    Iceman
    Invisible woman
    Iron man IW
    Killmonger
    King Groot
    Luke Cage
    Mags marvel now
    Massacre
    Mr. Fantastic
    Mysterio
    Night thrasher
    Punisher 2099
    Ronin
    Sabretooth
    She hulk
    Silver surfer
    Spidergwen
    Task master
    Vision Aarkus
    Wasp

    to rank 2 as a six star. Materials to take champs up to rank 2 aren't even particularly rare anymore. Lot's of people have 12+ rank 5 five stars or rank 2 six stars. As long as a champ has solid uses and is fun to play they are a sensible rank 2 option as a six star.

    Fair enough. Im biased towards the character because there is something about him. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    I hope the others on the list are good tho

    Ronin isn't worth ranking up? Are you kidding me?

    Man, you deserve a LOL at the very least for all the effort that you placed into doing up this chart.

    So a LOL it is.
  • DannyB01DannyB01 Posts: 327 ★★★
    I almost entirely agree with the chart. I would say Elsa, Killmonger, OG Vision and Sabretooth all deserve R2 (I would actually R3 all of them, already did Elsa and ST is next).

    Storm and Star-Lord are outdated and I'd leave at R1 though, they have almost no utility besides damage and are totally outclassed by many of the newer champs.

    Nice list!
