God tier 4* vs Dog tier 6* shows really bad game design

That really makes me wonder how we just keep looking the other way...

    Yea. Most 6* are terrible and need a redesign or buff.

    If there weren't terrible champs, we'd have no incentive to keep running on the hamster wheel. You'd get a set of badasses and pretty much ignore everything else. *cough* 12.0 *cough*

    it doesn't matter if it Thor or Karnak any player can take out a 6star champ if they have the skill in playing the game. Hill a top tier elite player can do it with a 3star because they has the skill.

    I would like to thank Kabam for giving me such an awesome game. Sometimes the champs aren’t what I’ve mentally pictured them to be, from comics I’ve read or movies I’ve seen. However, this has been BY FAR. The best. App. Ever. Thanks for the good times and keep up the good work!

    you realize karnaks not meant for dmg output but to shut down evade and autoblock right?

    Looks like Karnack won the fight, at full health. What's the complaint?

    Karnak doesn't start getting large damage crits until he's focused. Did you pair him with the Medusa and BB? Karnak would probably do better over time than Thor.

    All we have to do is take armor break away from all 4* champs and we can fix this "bad game design" problem.

    A 1/25 6* is in ranking tiers only approximately one tier higher than a 5/50 4*, and thus any high damage 5/50 is going to outdamage in many circumstances lower damage 1/25s. Karnak might be one of the more extreme examples of this, but this isn't intrinsically bad game design.

    To the extent that there's any game design error shown here, it has nothing to do with Karnak. It has to do with the larger overlap between 4* and 5* champs than desirable. If 5* champs overlapped 4* champs as 6* overlaps 5*, then a 6* 1/25 would be roughly comparable to a 5/65 5* today and there would be far less overlap in damage between 5/50s and 1/25s. But it would still exist for the most extreme damage dealing cases, and that still wouldn't be bad game design. To force all 6* champs to be better than all 5* champs and all 5* champs to be better than all 4* champs would require all champs in the same tier to have very similar stats and capabilities. It would homogenize the champions into boring versions of themselves where nothing would excel, because excelling is numerically identical to impinging on higher rank tiers.
