You're missing Carry, or sustained high-damage glass cannon type (who usually center on their autoattack rather than ability damage). Nuker makes me think of burst-style damage dealers who are vulnerable during their cooldowns, or an ability-focused mage. Poke, on the other hand, is extreme range attrition-style play that wears down team comps that lack sustain.

Also, Tanks and Bruisers tend to have divergent gameplay objectives, so bundling them together is a tad off. Tanks emphasize fight initiation, absorbing punishment, and protecting allies (support); while Bruisers are burly damage-dealers who look to put threat on enemy squishies.

The only moba that I play is hots and it doesn't really have carrys so I forgot about that, and other things I forget other mobas have :p also poke heroes in hots are like super sustained damage glass cannons (lunara, li-ming)

also warriors in it are basically bruisers, except for stitches or ETC

In League, tanks emphasis single-handedly murdering carries on contact. It's actually really silly.

I can play anything but I am only any good at carries. Specific kinds of carries, at that.

depends on the game TBH, in league i gravitate towards fat tanky dudes because i always yolo my way into every fight anyway, i figure i should at least be able to take a few hits for the team

in wow i love healing as my resto druid. I'm not fond of tracking aggro or pressing the same rotation over and over again

in hots I like specialists for some reason, sylvanas and that tanklady are kinda fun, but sona sticks with my league mentality of just going in for blood and glory

in single player things i much prefer to play squishies, in d2 id play sorc or necro or summoner druid, d3 i favour wizard, in fallout i like making super low hp builds. usually makes the game more of a challenge, which is nice to over come when you dont have 4 other people relying on you to do your job right and can take your time with each situation. In fact in most RPGS ill try to put my stats into lockpicking/speech/hacking type skills, so that i need to rely more on figuring out ways around conflicts, or at least to get the upper hand on them, and you can usually get good loot and lore this way.

idk, what game were you asking about?

been playing tonnes of RekSai and Kindred lately, probably my best 2 atm and I build both fairly greedy for dps/sustained damage. Shyvana is another favourite of mine. But my role usually varies when I play league, since i'm either top or jungle, so sometimes i'm frontline initiation (nautilus) other times I'm bruiser/offtank with damage (reksai/shyv) and even other times I'm just a squishy damage dealer (quinn/kindred).

He just got buffed this patch, consider picking him up again, really strong in the jungle if you go warrior -> titanic (or cinder -> titanic) and then bruiser/fulltank depending on the enemy team. Really good in coordinated 5v5 as well, maybe a bit weaker in soloq due to farm junglers

I frequently play Support and Tanks. I am very bad at killing other players.

Urgot is stupid toxic in lane with Thunderlords, and they just keep buffing him. And Voli is overpowered with Rageblade. So...
