This news archive lists Staff mb (Message Board) posts & events that have appeared on the public UR news feed

User Guidelines:
- Each event is listed in chronolgical order, descending from the past to most recent.
- Multiple events that happened on the same day are separated by number
- The first line shows the title of the event.
- The next lines show a summary. (The 1st few lines of the event)
- The last line is a link/URL to the full story. (IF a URL exists)
- The URL gives additional insight because the info in the discussions usually clarify anything seemingly unclear by the staff.
- Unfortunately, the Staff mb doesn't have an archive of everything that happened on the public news feed
(I.E. Some character & CR release stories are missing)
- I only included events that affected UR internationally, hence "UR International News"
(I.E. Character stories, new features, CR stories, comic releases, etc)
- I did not include: technical bugs/upgrades, new payment options, staff promotions, scam warnings, country exclusive events, etc

I used my best judgement on what to publicly reveal. But worry not! I keep a personal copy of the RAW, uneditted archive from the EN staff board & public news just in case major edits/additions are needed for future UR Int'l News Archive drafts.

Charm Offensive
The Pussycats up the anti and launch a mass offensive against machismo in Clint City. To carry out the attack, they’re counting on the help of their two new recruits, Ditha and Brittany. Meanwhile, the Piranas welcome Ulrich and the Jungo make room for Buba...

Conflict of Style
To strengthen her clan, Ielena didn’t think twice about turning Oshitsune, one of the city’s most legendary heroes, into a zombie. Confronted with this new threat, the Sentinels turn to Owen, while the Skeelz welcome Praxie and Dwan to their numbers...

A Quiet Strength
To get your ideas heard in Clint City, you need to be able to bang your fist on the table (or failing that, on your opponent's head). The Rescue and the Ulu Watu are all too well aware of this, so this week they welcome new recruits, Krash and Zack, who they hope will give more weight...

No Pity
The streets of Clint City are not exactly known for their peace and quiet but the confusion might just go up a notch or two in the coming days thanks (or due to) this week’s new recruits. The GHEIST welcomes Astrid and her acid-spitting worms, while the Junkz can now count on the fearsome Haze...

Brain and Brawn
While some of the clans rely on muscles to make a difference, others look to the power of the intellect. It’s hard to say which will be the winning strategy but the fight should be something else. While the All Stars welcome athletic Essie to their numbers, the Jungo turn to Ronald and his powers...

Visions from beyond
To strengthen their numbers and outdo their opponents, the Clint City clans are in no way opposed to scanning the four corners of the globe, or further still, to unearth new talent. And so the Sentinel welcome Zhang, fresh from Hong Kong, to their ranks, while the Sakrohm make room for Sigma...

New game mode : Deathmatch
You must have noticed a big change it the battle room list... A new game mode has appeared in Urban Rivals: Deathmatch mode. We wanted to offer you a kind of super fast mini DT with a limited number of players. The DM points rules are different with several tricks inspired by...

We hope you'll like them

We've changed the phase time for the last fight : now you have five minutes extratime to end your match properly at the end of the 20 minutes timer when you can challenge your opponents. Kate will tell you how many time is left to end your match during this extratime period...

The «DM» points Don’t exist any more. From now on the points you’ll get are normal battle points which count in your levelling...

1. Discretion and Efficiency
To come out on top in Clint City, discretion and efficiency sometimes need to be favored over brute force. And the Junta’s new recruit, Nahomi is all too aware of this. Meanwhile the Jungo welcome Wendy while Gertjan joins forces with the Roots and Pesth finds his place on the decks...

2. Change your deck!
More improvements :
On top of the Battle rooms page you’ll see a new tool. Now you can directly change your deck from there. If you have some saved presets, no need to go on your collection or your deck: you can change faster. When you’ll change of game mode, two clicks later your deck will be changed too.

2. Black Magic
To send the city into further disarray and to strengthen their influence, the Nightmare clan has had the fiendish idea of bringing back from the dead, serial killer Vince. Faced with this prospect the other clans do their best to respond. The Freaks welcome Baldovino to their ranks, while Stacey...

First Encounters
They’ve traveled a very long way from the Future and are certainly not there for sightseeing! Under the orders of their tyrannical emperor, the members of the Vortex Clan have come to Clint City to eradicate, at its very Roots, the trouble that will be caused by the Clint City Clans in the future...

Make Room for the Elite
Now that the Vortex has set up their first base in Clint City, it's time to get down to more serious business and with this week's impressive reinforcements things should really start hotting up.
