Some "NEED TO KNOWS" in Brief
Force Majeure - Moderator - Open CasketEnglish - Wednesday 27/05/2009, 07:57

Please read the GAME'S RULES..it will answer most of your questions and will help you in the game..
http://www.urban-rivals.com/game/rules.php

Where can I get my free Leaders?
-when you reach certain levels, you get free Leader/s, you can check the link in your homepage to get them

Can I create a dual-account or a multi-account?
-that's a big "NO"..duals and multis are not allowed here, we will deal with them as appropriate..using duals and multis for cheating purposes will likely get the duals banned and for repeat offenders, banning of all the accounts will be an option

What are blacklists and how do I avoid them?
-blacklist is a form of sanction you'll be getting when you cross some lines..(you will not be able to send messages, post messages, talk to friends, communication with you will be blocked)
-the most common forms of blacklistable offenses are: direct insults, DT cheating, ELO cheating, scamming, card theft, fixing fights, multi-account usage and others more (basically, the usual negative things that people do, for more info regarding blacklists, contact one of the Mods)..depending on your number of offenses or how big the issue is..we can move further by banning the account..but..as much as possible, we don't want to go there

What is Customer Support and where do I find it?
-suggestions, technical problems, SMS codes, Alopass codes, credit code and card theft problems, are to be directed here

DT Cheating, ELO Cheating, Survivor Cheating
-anyone caught cheating will get a blacklist, and a ban in the said format..a ban meaning, if you cheat in ELO, we will ban you from playing ELO, if you cheat in Survivor, you will get a ban from playing Survivor, etc..repeat offenders will likely get their account/s banned

How do I get to the French Forums? Spanish Forums? etc?
-just go to UR homepage and click the desired "Flag" located just above the Clint City News

When I Create a Guild, how long does it take for it to get approved?
-as soon as you create one, it gets forwarded to us for approval / rejection..when you can create a guild again, that just simply means your previous guild submission has been rejected, otherwise, you will be notified by Kate that your guild has been approved

How do I trade cards?
-You just sell the card/s privately to each other at the agreed amount of card/s and clintz

What is a Moderator trade and how do we do it?
-when you have doubts about a trade or you just want to do it safely, a Mod can watch over your trade..you just have to make an agreement with the other player that you want to do the Mod trade and then you just contact an available and willing Mod and ask if the said Mod can hold all the cards in the deal, then the Moderator will distribute the card/s to the appropriate player to complete the deal

- Attack, - Power, - Damage abilities and bonuses explained
In cases of - attack, - power, and - damage abilities and bonuses, the higher "minimum applies first"
examples:
Zatman: bonus of -10 attack min. 3 will be applied first, then -4 attack min. 1 next.
Ella: ability of -2 damage min. 4 will be applied first, then -2 damage min. 1 next.
Robb: ability of -3 power min. 4 will aply first, then -2 power min. 1 next.

Can I stack Poison Abilities?
No, if you successfully use another Poison Ability, it will replace the currently activated Poison, regardless of what that may be.

In cases of +/- Power or +/- Attack abilities and bonuses against each other, which goes first?
example: The -power of Robb or the +power of Juicy Lord?
Example:
Robb 5/4
ability -3 opponent power min.4
bonus -2 opponent power min.1
Juicy Lord 6/4
ability -2 opponent damage min.2
bonus +2 power
ANSWER: + POWER/attack always applies first before an opposing - POWER/attack gets applied.
Juicy Lord's power becomes 8 first, then reduced to 5 because of Robb's ability, then reduced to 3 because of Robb's bonus.

How does Courage really work?
Courage abilities always work when a card is played "FIRST IN THE ROUND"
but not always if played "IN THE FIRST ROUND" which is different.
There are four rounds in a match
round1
round2
round3
round4
During those 4 rounds you will get to choose your character first in the round for two times same as with your opponent and you will take alternating turns in doing so. i.e. When you choose a card first in round1, your opponent will play first in round2, then you again in round3 and your opponent in round4.
Again, when you choose a card first in the round, that's when Courage is activated.
In a match, you can only activate courage twice, same as with your opponent.
Courage can never be activated by you or your opponent at the same round.

Why is it when I play ELO, my score doesn't go up or down?
There is a rest time in ELO, during that span of time, when the ELO tourney for the week ends, scores do not add up anymore until the ELO tourney restarts again (same day/new ELO tourney)

When I play in daily tourneys, what are the rules in terms of battles included/recorded/counted as a DT battle? In other words must a battle start and/or finish during the hour to count?
To be taken into account, a match must begin DURING the Daily Tournament. It will still be taken into account if your last match ends after the end of the DT.
Example:
The DT begins at 8:00
You start your first match at 7:58 and it ends ar 8:04 = this match won't be taken into account.
You start your last match at 8:57 and it ends at 9:05 = this match will be taken into account.

How do I become a Moderator and what are the benefits of being one?
1.Asking us won't do you any good, you don't come to us and ask to be a Mod, we will come to you.
2.No, you will not become a Mod by saying you are nice and full of spice.
3.There is no set criteria.
4.There are no benefits in being a Mod, you will work for free and you won't get inside information regarding anything.

Sometimes I get messages from people asking why they don't receive newsletters in their e-mail.

E-mails aside, one way to check it here in Urban Rivals without resorting to mail is by going to the UR homepage.
Then you look at the news regarding the newly released cards (any of them, even past ones), from there you will see red highlighted words/phrase which are not card names, packs, or shop. They are just words which are a part of the paragraph but highlighted in red. Click it. It will direct you to the newsletter and from there there are instructions regarding the deck of the week.

example:
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. Meanwhile, the Freaks present Piotr and the Fang Pi Clang see the arrival of Sayura. Get these characters in the shop’s New Blood, Action, Danger and Cool Attitude packs.

click the "NEW RECRUITS" which is highlighted in red.

In a non-random room, who wins if the two attacks are the same?

In the event of equal attacks in a non random room, the player controlling the lower level character wins the round. If both the characters are at the same level, then the player controlling the attacking character wins.
