you know someone suggested a hybrid fighter rogue... maybe this is the answer for now... I will add it to pitch
Yeah we let someone play a gestalt. She dominated every combat damage wise but still was hit or miss on every other type of encounter.

I would suggest take the bard, remove spell casting THEN gestalt that with fighter.

This makes sense. ALL the classes are very good (in different ways) in combat, so a gestalt non-caster would be even better (only limited by action economy). But outside combat the weak points remain.

Yeah giving 1d6 sneak attack per 2 levels AND extra attack seems might be too much.

I sent a text to the group and a gestalt set of noncasters mixed with non gestalt casters may be the middle ground but they want to do a short playtest before a full campaign.

in my worlds for a while I have allowed for 2 subclasses (warlock only gets 2 pact or 2 patreons not both) but only for 1 class. (so a fighter/wizard can be an eldrich knight and battle master and warmage, or can be an eldrich knight and warmage and spell singer, but not 2 subclasses for both) so allowing both to get 1 subclass instead on a gestalt is something we are talking about.

We also are talking about making the casters take the 2014 backgrounds but letting the non casters take the new playtest ones.

All of that sounds great.
