Weakened Charge Attacks

In theory, Survivors'/Heroes' Charge Attacks are more powerful than their regular attack counterparts. Why do "Crowd Control" Survivors/Heroes (Warrior, Assault, Bruiser) seem to have weaker Charge Attacks? It's almost better to use their regular attacks. Bruiser and Assault can at least Stun their enemies and avoid damage but Warrior has two use both of their attacks on the same opponent when regularly they could do the same damage with just one attack.

As I type this out i have decided that Warriors got jipped the most in the Charge Attack department. Please improve their Charge Attack.

    I've never noticed that Bruisers and Assaults did less damage in their charge attack. The Warrior charge attack has been discussed before here (including a response from @Shteevie): http://forums.nextgames.com/walkingdead/discussion/14233/warrior-bonus-attack

    I agree - Warriors' charge attacks are virtually useless against higher level walkers.

    Same happened to me today with Rosita in the s7 mission. Killing level 17 walkers left and right no problem, had abt seven of them in front of me and decided to use the stun just bc and completely expecting them to go down. Nada. Stunned. Was shocked.
    One time occurence? I don't know bc I hadn't paid much attention to levels thus far since upgrading.

    My 6 star strong warrior can't even one shot level 23 zombies with regularity anymore, something has happened in the last couple months to warrior damage overall .. the weakened first attack from charge, I knew about a while back . Sucks too because I used to always have a warrior in my A team

    Noticing same as @Aeshur005 and @bsgper4 . Normal attack kills 4/5 lvl22, charged one 1/5. Experienced already on Alexandria challenge(was pretty awesome for good team of assaults).

    Was never sure about assualt. It does seem to do a little bit less damage maybe.

    Sigh,I remember when I first unlocked warrior class,several months ago,but now seems like an eternity since!They were way better then,saved that granny from those uglies in Woodbury!She became a regular on hard missions despite her arthritis and unpleasant appearance,yep,even worked her way up to legendary as well!Sadly,now she along with my other warriors ride the pine since their charge attacks were basically taken from them.NG,please fix our warriors!Do it for Granny!She may not last much longer jus settin on the bench all the live long!

    Hey, at least we're seeing an effort to make bruisers more relevant. Once everything is nerfed, er, balanced down to their level, they get to come out of the outhouses.

    When I was tracking these things a few months ago, there were a couple things I noticed about charge attacks:
    1. Assault Charge doesn't body shot
    2.Hunters charged critical attack does less damage than a normal critical attack
    3. Didn't notice anything about Shooter Crit Charge attack and damage values; I wasn't playing with them at the time.
