After the (chaotic) release of the Standard mode and the first feedbacks, we have taken decisions on several things we want to let your know. We think you will be satisfied with the future improvements we will add first.
• Improvement of the quickbattle system in DTs.
We already made corrections, it seems that the small decks vs big decks problem is far less met. We will keep on working on it until the partition T1/T2 is not a problem any more.
• Penalties on some characters in DTs.
The first 2 points penalties per character are already operational and you can find the list here: http://www.urban-rivals.com/help/?category=9-0
Except for Leader, for the moment there are no penalized Standard characters. It may change, we give ourselves time to analyse DTs.
• DTs divided in two.
Finally we won’t alternate DT’s. We will let you have two DTs at the same time, 1 Standard, 1 Extended. With two different rankings.
• Length of a DT shorten but increase of its frequency.
DTs length will decrease from 1 hour to 45 minutes with a 15 minutes break between each tournament and then you can play again. It means there will be 24 Standard DTs and 24 Extended DTs per day.
To prevent abuses, a limitation of 8 DT credits per day and player will be added (you will receive all other rewards if you play more than 8 DTs).
• Survivor Standard and Deathmatch Standard rooms.
They will be open soon, we are working on an update of the flash game.
Questions you may want to ask:
• The number of CR remain at 5. It might change in the future.
• A PM will be sent to you each evening if you made a top 150 during the day so as to inform you if you have won a collector (or not).
• The timer will be reduced from 60 to 50 seconds again.
I just lost twice in a row because of lag during the daily tournament and my fair play rating is down to 99%..Not to mention that i lost 40 pts already,so there's no point to play the rest of dt,i won't be able to catch up and place in top 150 and we all know how hard it is to score 250 pts and more with this new dt system,so this lag is something you'll have to deal with UR staff...My internet connection is quite solid btw,so it's not my mistake.And I think I am not the only one who had experience with this problem and went crazy...
It sucks that if you want to play Survivor T2, you HAVE to have 40* deck if you want to have ANY chance of reaching high score... I reached 5 (which is not much, but still), and then run into opponent with 5 more stars than me... At least tell us in the game rules that you HAVE to have 40* deck because otherwise you have no chance of doing anything significant...
