To summarise: the best melee/DMG class is the Swordsman; the best mid-range/DMG class is the Witch; the best ranged DMG class is the Rogue; the best support class is the Engineer; the best tank class is the Destroyer.

The choice of which character players choose depends entirely on what type of gameplay they prefer. Players who enjoy close combat or enjoy being right in the heat of battle would suit Swordsman, or even Destroyer. A player who enjoys dealing damage but staying back from the main action, the Rogue would be best. A mid-range DMG dealing player would suit the Witch the best. Of course a player who prefers to support the team with buffs and heals is suited to Engineer.

It is now entirely up to you! Good luck.
