After a Xantiax gas leak in the air ducts of the Red One Motel, all the staff and hotel guests were transformed into fearsome beings, possessed by a fury that can only be appeased by intense fighting. In fact, they would have ripped each other to pieces for time immortal if Cortez hadn't united them under a common cause: to find those responsible for their situation and make them pay!

How do all of you posters not understand what this clan is going to be an do, first off, you cannot write a clan after their initial 4 cards, second do you not understand what these guys can and will do? Assuming they are going to get a lot more backlash cards, they are immune, to SoA, Soa clans which run rampant, will be making cards like Norman and Beef better. The -2 life min 2 is great, I mean what do you guys want -5 life min 0? Yes, SoB shut them done, blah, blah, blah, of course, that is what SoB clans do, however, SoB clans generally have lowered powered cards. The fact of the matter is, they guys negate some clans, minmize, others and are weak to still others. That's the point, this clan fixes two issues in Urban Rivals. Damage Reduction and Stop opponent ability. Assuming more backlash is coming our way, this guys will be smasing GHEIST and Roots, while at the same time getting around Damage Reduction. Ask your self how many times you are like, man if they didn't have SoA I would have smoked them, or man if only I could have done 2 more damage against Uranus, well now you can. You'll be saying bring it on when you have backlash to GHEIST and Roots and Qubik and Bogdan, etc, and you'll be saying, so sorry Uranus I just did 3 off your life total instead of 1. In addition, these guys seem to pair well with some clans, like Pussycats and Vortex, you charge in with Berzerk and sit back with your Vortex and Pussycats to recoup.

In short, don't trash the clan and the abilities and the bonus until you actually play with them, but at least until they have about 12 clan members. Also, think about their impact on the whole, ELO, Deathmatch, T2, Survivor, and not how they do against a few clans, but how they impact the game, example, GHEIST is running rampant, (more a reality than example) you use Berzerk to combat them because their bonus is not affected and Berzerk get better by having their abilties shut off. They are a high risk, high reward clan that you won't be saying suck when you are getting trounced by them. Great job UR keep them coming.

Welcome to retirement Kawamashi smiley

Thursday 28/07/2011, 12:55

Etymology- Kawamashi is named after Ryuta Kawashima, a professor who studies the mind. Dr Kawashima is well known for having released many brain-training games for DS consoles.
If you're interested in finding out more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryuta_Kawashima

Kawamashi is quite obviously a scientist or professor of some sort, and the "massive blows of fire extinguishers to the head" is a reference to Dr Kawashima studying the mind.

Well Berzerker clans first Cr is KAWAMASHI smiley. Did anyone really think Cortez was going to become Cr? I remember when Cortez first came out everyone kept saying he is going Cr soon LoL. Well don't hold your breath because he still has a lot of years left before he gets to retire.
Good bye Kawamashi Cr I hardly knew you.

Kawamashi Cr
7/3 | Ability: +9 attack | Bonus: -2 opp. life, min. 2

He has the always useful attack manipulation at an amount of 9. Wait...what the heck! 9!?!?!? Get this awkward number out of my face!!!! Ahhh, but now I have come to realize that I quite like it. Not only does this make him unique (well now he's a cr), but it is ever useful in battle. What makes a card like Tuck so much better than a Rico? It certainly isn't the +1 damage that makes Tuck cost an extra star, and a but load of clintz. It's the fact that Rico manipulates 6 and Tuck manipulates 8. Hold on there Buddy? You're telling me that it's all about 2 measly points? Yes, sir that is what I'm saying... and the reason is simple: it doesn't matter by how many points you win, as long as you have more than your opposing card. Against any equally powered card, (and 7 is a very common, if not the most common, power to have) opponents will need 2 more pills to beat you while against Rico they will need only 1 more (which if they are higher starred, won't even matter because you'll win a tie anyway). Ultimately, it's about 1upping the opponent.

And that ladies and gents is where mr. kawamashi comes in. So take that Tuck vs. Rico and 1up it again. Kawamashi Cr in fact does this to a plethora of cards: Raeth, all Junkz, all Sakrohm, all Sentinel (essentially it's better than having SoB). The ability to guarantee that you will be up in pills if you do not win the battle is incredibly useful. 1 attack point is all the difference...if you're on the right side of it that is. Just ask Stompah, 11 instead of kawamashi's 9 basically doesn't matter much. He still loses to Montana, Rescue, and cards like dagg.

So should Kawamashi Cr make your deck over the likes of Roger, Kostner, or Lola? Meh, it's really up to you, but I value attack manipulation a lot and (like i just took 2 paragraphs to explain) that number 9 is magical. When deciding between Roger and kamawashi, think of it this way: most clans are 8 so he'll beat while Roger matches anything. For Roger, he relies heavily on being a low star count to win those ties. Basically, you trade that risk for 1 damage, so it's a toss up. Kostner I'm quite fond of, but he has no help at getting his great life gap through. And then Lola is great for mind games, so again it's up to your preference. I just think that kamawashi cr is, was, and has been always kind of an overlooked and underrated card. People forgot about him...and then he went cr..lol.

The news that announced his Cr status said he left behind an empty flask.

... I bet he finally managed to cure himself.

It's pointless for anymore cards to come out and become cr. So what? I have 13 off rip and as you can see on the market people have 1234 total and there are surely collectors out there HOARDING way more than that. Everyone has gotten into the habit of hoarding cards in hopes that they will become cr and sure enough they do. Kawamashi may go up a few thousand clintz but that will be it. You can thank the 1234 idiots who flooded the market with him.

Thursday 18/08/2011, 23:04

This card is alot more useful then most people are giving him credit for.

He even forces your opponent to pill at least 1 if not 2 pills just to beat his ability! smiley

Monday 04/03/2013, 16:11

I wouldn't mind him going cr.

Lola,Roger,Kostner will leave him no place in my deck. So better sell him when his price is highest.

Its Drummond with:
1 more power
1 more damage
1 more Attack manip.
1 more star

Berzerk Reviews #11


+ Atk+9 is very nice. Also one of the few Atk+ abilities that you cant divide by 2(just a curiousity).
+ Standard stats for a 3 star

- Without his ability he becomes just another 3 star Berzerk, since many of them have 7/3

Kawamashi is good at low pill battles and countering attack manipulation. It depends on your playstyle if Kawamashi sucks or is staple in your deck.

Usefulness: 80%
Price/quality: 75%
