    The champion design process takes a fairly long time, and a not small part of it is the pacing of roles and team composition options. Blue Beetle was slated to be a Marksman quite a ways back, and as his design came together we decided it was both time for a full "dual form" champion, and that his dual nature (Jaime / Khaji-da) would work great for it. At around this same time, the Scarab artifact was finding it's niche and home. Changing BB to a Hybrid damage Marksman could have been done, but we actually felt like our number of pure Attack Damage Marksman was a little low, and completely changing the Scarab to be an AD artifact would leave a big hole in our list.

    In short, it was going to be disruptive to change, either on the champion or artifact side. Future champions will take this more into account, as we have a stable artifact listing to design around.
    But since he is a dual role champion wouldn't it have been possible to make him an Attack damage Marksmen and a Power damage assassin? That way his Marksmen role can benefit from the power damage he builds for the assassin role by making Scarab be an good artifact choice for him? It would also make his role swap ult a little more usefull than just a role swap because he could swap between with role counters the champion you are targeting best. It also could've allowed you to add an on activation effect to the swap in the form of "Swapping from Marksmen to Assassin grants +100% attack damage on your next hit, Swapping from Assassin to Marksmen grants +80% power damage on your next hit". It could've been a great idea and if any Marksmen/Assassin should be PD/AD lore wise it would be Jaime. He has both conflicting personalities and two different fighting styles.

    Hybrid just never works. You can never get the most when you're supposed to deal AD/AP and vice versa. Swapping forms just means you only deal half damage while better marksmen/assassins can burst targets quicker with full AD/AP builds. I understand hybrid sounds cool on paper but the execution is dissatisfying.

    Gasbat and Aquaman beg to differ. Aquaman of course usually builds power damage but same difference. The hybrid however would work on a hero like Blue Beetle that has two roles if one was attack and one was power. That would allow you to essentially build for whatever suits the other team's weakness.
