u Gus

Released on Friday 20/05/11

When Gus turned up at the Red One Motel on that fatal night, he had no idea someone was lurking in the shadows for him, all set to steal his equipment and pass themselves off as him so they could release a poisonous gas throughout the hotel. When he finally came round, he found himself immersed in thick, red smoke and was one of the first people to be transformed. One day he’ll track down whoever it was who took advantage of him and he knows exactly what he'll do with them when he finds them...

:-d Review of Gus :-d

Stats: 6/5
Ability: courage: +3 power

Overview: Everyone in the game when they first set eyes on this card immediately said to themselves: "This card reminds me Burger". This is very true as they have the exact same stats, the exact same ability, and to an extent the exact same bonus. Gus is the second 4* release to the clan but there is a high level of "Deja Vu" surronding this cards release.

In testing: I maybe going against the current here but I love this card :love: . Not overly surprising as I also like Burger for some reason... Gus with courage gives him an incredibly good 9 power. Mixed with superb damage (with bonus) this card gets even more brownie points from me.

However let's not get ahead of ourselves as this card is very flawed. The courage is clearly not set in stone because of SOA. The card is also very inflexible as you will only be able to play it 2/4 rounds in the match where counters can be readily available for him during the 2 rounds. This means the card will get shut down in any form of competitive ELO ;__; .

The problems continue with the heavy backlash in the clan. The sadness is backlash requires SOA to release the scary cards from their curses for winning. By leading with this card you are drawing the SOA from those cards.

Despite his problems this card has one really good thing about him. Gus is the only card (apart from kawamashi) who can open properly because of his power unlike the rest of the clan who are suited for late game activity.

Playstyle: Very easy to play with this card. Play on his courage turns. If your opponent has SOA in his hand approach with caution and avoid facing it at all costs. If hard to play due to SOA then use him as a throwaway card or as a bluff.

In Conclusion: So is he like Burger? Yes. Is he fun to play with? Of course! Gus has his own niche in the opening. Will he be replaced any time soon? Most likely but for now he is definitely better than the backlashing Beef. However as I always say courage is never a bad thing, your opponent just has to be ready for it.

3/5 stars

@ moe2000
Oh really? Have you never seen a new card being expencive before? Because there is almost none of it then, the price becomes higher. You are level 43 and haven´t understanded the system of supply and demand yet? Give me a break.

Berzerk Review #8


+ His nice ability pumps him up to 9 power
+ Good 5 dmg with bonus sets up 2hitkos

- Courage based abilities have 2 flaws: Can only be used in 50% of the rounds and can be countered easily.
- Without his ability he only has 6 power which is low for 4 stars

Gus´ ability puts him at 9 power thus allowing you to bluff, attack, and keep up with power +2 clans and his 5 dmg plus bonus allows a lot of other Berzerk to close in for the kill. but his ability can be easily predicted and sadly, Gus is not good without it.

Usefulness: 75%
Price/Quality: 80%

Gus 6/5 ability:courage +3 power bonus: -2 opp life min 2

a decent 6 power and with his ability becomes 9 power that's awesome
5 damage is decent and with their bonus he becomes a monsterous 9/7 and that is amazing cause that stats are for 5 stars
a 9/7 coming at you is very threatening
and if by chance your opponent has no dr or soa then he might be in trouble

the presence of soa is common in elo in the form of Roots and GHEIST and to sum things up he is courageously played making the opponent play a soa against him
the Berzerk is a bit made to counter soa (Beef,Norman,Melanie,Taylor) and he does not fit for that criteria.
sphiagi and Uranus still effectively reduces his damage

overall: 8/10 He is better than Beef for me, it is true that his performance is bad with soa but a good player can play unpredictably no matter what happens so given the situation you encounter soa the opponent may think he's just for bluff and then when the fight starts the opponent is suprised as you put a few pillz on Beef and you win and dealt that 7 damage.Great card!!

Gus......the 'yes he's bloody similar to Burger' card

Well as i have said, and every man and his dog on the game has said, this card is similar to Burger, both stat wise and useage wise...but what does that mean?

Well like Burger he can be very strong, standing at a possible 9/7 Gus can power his way through alot of cards, problem is that 9 power is only possible in 2 rounds, and playing with him 'unpredictabely' at no courage is very risky due to hs sort-of weak- 6 power, which is going to fail to alot of calns.

A BIGGGG problem is his predictability, now the enemy can see him coming and either position an SOA to attack him (he aint doin crap against Quibik/ Bryan etc) or just position a DR to block him. GHEIST and Roots are another story, not actually as bad as you can play unpredictabely and get away with it.

Look in the end, like Burger he has the potential to be good, like Burger he's predictable and like Burger he will definately be replaced in the future (so far by Revok but hopefully we'll get better 4*)
