I am not letting psionics in any form lose to the champion that is just insulting.

Just so you know: I only include the most recent UA in these threads. If an UA subclass was later published in an official book, I will cite the book version. I do this to avoid confusion since almost all of the non-PHB subclasses were UA playtests at one point.
2016 is not "recent". If it hasn't made it into an official book within around a year, it's officially axed. You might as well include every 3PP subclass. I have seen far more of those (we have a cobalt soul monk for example) in use than 8-year-old failed experiments.

And as pointed out the Cavalier is a more recent version of the Knight. It's just that the name was one of those things that was changed.

Unearthed Arcana, for better or worse, is not third-party. They are written and published by Wizards of the Coast.

I didn't mean to imply that these UA are "recent" chronologically-speaking. I was trying to say that they are "the most recent version available by that name." Sorry for the lack of clarity.

Look for more Unearthed Arcana options in the next thread! The monk had several.

Since I only know three of these, and only played one, guess I don't have many options.

Arcane Archer 15
Battle Master 23 - not sure I want to deal with extra dice (plus it's currently the highest)
Brute 17
Cavalier 19
Champion 15 - simple can be good
Echo Knight 16
Eldritch Knight 23
Knight 20
Monster Hunter 20
Psi Warrior 13
Purple Dragon Knight 16
Rune Knight 21
Samurai 20
Scout 15
Sharpshooter 20

Knight 20
Monster Hunter 20
Psi Warrior 13
Purple Dragon Knight 16
Rune Knight 21 + 1 = 22 It pains me to upvote a magical Fighter...but this one is actually neat.

You could always just downvote the UA ones first :p
I'll probably just stick to whatever is currently highest (as long as it isn't Champion), rolling randomly in there is a tie. :D

Good for me. Given all the others, I know it won't last because of attitudes like yours. I find it funny how people down vote the easy choices instead of eliminating the others which might actually be competition at the end.

I could see a nice Eldritch Knight/ Rune Knight war.

And this is why we get so many mediocre survivor winners. People so afraid of competition for their personal favorite that all the good choices get knocked out early.

I looked at the other winners. I don't think Totem Warrior or Lore Bard is mediocre. I mean I don't have many books for 5E so I don't know much about a lot of the options, but I always thought both of those subclasses were pretty good. Tempest is okay, but I like Knowledge and War more.

In my defense, up until literally the last day of the Druid competition, Land was barely holding on and Stars was killing it, right up at the top. I had hoped for Wildfire but was cool with Stars. Then, in the span of like three hours, Land went from "almost dead" to "currently winning," while Stars got an almost unmitigated stream of downvotes taking it from leader of the pack to dead.

So like...I was doing exactly what you said, shooting down the ones I didn't want to see and propping up the one I did. It didn't end up mattering, because people dogpiled my backup preference extremely suddenly and then gunned for my main preference immediately thereafter, while making a rapid and dramatic reversal of fortune for one I had opposed from the very beginning. Hard to see how I, or anyone else, could have meaningfully done things differently when Stars had such a precipitous fall and Land such a narrow recovery.

And I'm doing now what I did then. Opposing the bland, dull choices and building up the ones I find at least moderately interesting. I would love to be able to vote for a non-magical Fighter, but all the options either suck to some degree or are dropped Next playtest material, so...yeah. I wouldn't be totally upset if Battle Master won, but I wouldn't be happy either.

Because a lot of people wanted Land and not Stars (or Wildfire)? Or I imagine Land might have been a second or third choice for many (like Stars was for you).

Despite what people claim, the old and "boring" subclasses are still enjoyed. I only have the PHB, and I haven't been playing long, so they are "new" to me, but I imagine when other people first started playing they played the PHB and enjoyed them.

It seems like votes, like myself, will try to keep those choices going as long as possible, while trying to take down all the others. Like I said, I am going to downvote whatever is leading to keep it as close as possible.

Rune Knight 22-2 = 20 not just a magic fighter subclass, but a magic fighter subclass that has nothing to do with knightood, almost nothing to do with runes, a messy hodge-podge of vaguely gianty abilities that are so poorly conceived that the Hill Gianty one is the most powerful, and besides, D&Ds take on giants is rubbish anyway and shouldn't be encouraged. I can't vote this one down hard enough.
