A good friend of mine was asking me why I like to play my champ so much i simply stated "well, I like to hit stuff, and make things died" and he asked me why I like to play the melee classes more than tacticle classes I said "well, i like to smackey smackey instead of zappy zappy" now, im curious do you, my fellow champions, like to play the champ for the "smackey smackey i like to hit stuff" effect or something else?

I like the sound effects. How can SCHWING-SCHWING possibly be beat?
Also, I think my champ must have majored in theatre before he became an adventurer. The other day, I was killing wargs 25 levels below me to get some hides. The wargs died in an average of about 1.2 seconds each. One of them managed to sneak in an attack in those microseconds, and did about 12 points of damage. My champ screamed like he'd had his spleen ripped out through his navel.
The champ: The sounds. The drama. And as close to badass as I'll ever get. I heartily approve.
I've always found dead to be the best form of CC and a champ is best at that for me.
yes i agree, me and a few LM's got into an argument the other day, they were saying that when they are doing crowd control that they are taking an enemy out of battle for a short time and sayign that a champion is in no way a crowd control class
so i posed the question "well, as you say, when you are controlling a crowd of mobs are you not taking them out of battle? well how can that mob(s) fight back if they are dead?"
they havn't gotton back to me yet
Champ is the character in LOTRO who when everything goes south yells ''YOU ARE NEVER GOING TO TAKE ME ALIVE M%#$%#%!!!'' and kills everything before they get to the healer and to the other squishy-whiny members of the fellowship.
Besides: champs do everything better. DPS? Yes please. Tanking? How many guards/wardens do you know who constantly complains about us taking their aggro? cc? Dead mob wont fight back and wont command extra attension. Healing? Whats that? We have bubbles!
I just have to play my other classes to see what is so great about the champ. The no-holds-barred, no-caveats-involved playstyle is just nice. For some reason its just more fun to go out killing with my champ than any other class. Tanking/soloing challenges are a nice option as well.

You could realize by now that your Strong Belwas - Liver and onions schtick isnt all that funny. Find a new one.
You don't really have to worry about power management compared to other classes and the Flurry change they did with Fervour + the attack speed runes I have from Moria turns my two handed sword into SCHING SCHING machine. Champ is one of the few MMO melee classes that hasn't got old for me. I guess it's because you get to focus on all the action instead of having to worry about resources or petty buffs and all that.
Why Champs are the best:
1. Dead is the best form of CC
2. Who needs heals when everything is dead
3. "Whats power?" "That blue bar that sais 1,753!!" "Well never have problems with it running out"
4. SHING SHING
5. I didn't challenge him I just rock...or the tank sucks
6. 1 minute cooldown 5k bubble is ALL POWERFULL
