Hey guys, I was bored so I decided to calculate how much % of each clan is currently permanently banned in ELO.
(please note this was made on December 3, 2013)
All Stars: 6.5%
Fang Pi Clang: 0%
La Junta: 4.1%
Leader: 60% (isn't really a "clan" )
Ulu Watu: 4.1%
Hope it helps and good luck in ELO people!
FPC has indeed been my reliable go-to half deck for ELO.
Fang pi has a solid 3 star all rounder deck ( i put it on half's if I'm bored or drop one to make a strong 11 half)
ill put these all with bonus
Zhu Tang 8/4 with +1 life per damage. Lol what 8 point swing on a 8 power card. (without fury)
Kamekun 7/5 + 1 attack per life. First round +14 2nd round after Zhu Tang +18 T_T
Shifou 8/5 sob. You dirty old man
Ralph 7/5 with -2 pow. Easy damage (12*half)
Kusuri 7/4 defeat +2 life. Works great with Kamekun to keep his ability up. Or as a blocker (11* half)
the only other clam Imo with a more powerful half is Freaks
Or Junkz dam that is a sick clan
(Ps i like min 3star decks unless the 2 is really good)
FPC is not that good in an elo half...
It's slightly better in an elo full, but too outdated and the decks aren't as stable in winning compared to other clans.
It's really cause they have no power or attack manipulation.
Meanwhile, Vortex is decent, but they aren't good at dealing damage since they are vulnerable to attack manipulation and soa.
Dregn meets SOA clan, auto deals 4 damage and takes a whopping 5 stars.
I'm curious as to why you think FPC is not a good half.
Shifou, Kamekun and Zhu Tang are a nice core, and you'd usually AT LEAST 2 of the 3. Shifou and Kamekun are still quite useful in a 3/1 split, and Zhu Tang is just very threatening unopposed for only 3*.
Kusuri fills a 2* slot more often than not, and Futoshi Ld or Kerozinn Cr (or Yoshida) make up whatever else is needed. They're a more solid ELO half than you realise.
Also, most Vortex halves wouldn't even use Dregn (I only point that out because he's your main example). A combination of Dagg, T Gaank, X-0DUS, Deea, Cyb Lhia and C Wing is what you're most likely to see. The 2* don't fare well against SOA, but the 4* (T Gaank and X-0DUS particularly) still function very well.
That is all.
I think neo_08ms just isn't a very good ninja
according to the permaban listings there are no cards from Fang Pi
FPC has quite a few rock solid cards without even having to dip into their 5 stars. Basically the characters that others have already brought up, plus I have found Fei to be a real lifesaver many times now. He is very versatile and can be deployed against the lights of common threats like Eddie, Sandro, Coleridge, Puff, Tyd, Diana, and the entire Frozn clan.
