So, yeah, I used to play UR a lot when I was at University, but I sort of tapered off when I had to buckle down my senior year. Last time I logged in, they were just introducing the Frozn clan.

Now I'm kind of curious: what's been going on, in terms of major changes, since I left? How much of my collection is likely useless now?

I just have to share this and let out a huge whoop of: "F**k yeah! It's done! It's finally done! The godawful worst mission in the whole game is done and I'll never ever have to put that card in my deck! Whoooo! I got rid of Marzo!"

Cassandra is at 243 out of 250. Marzo is DONE! FINSIHED! Over! After god knows how long!

Contemplate this for a bit.

Should winning more rounds and/or having a lower star count still be a draw?

If the deck I draw is 10* and my opponent draws a 12* deck and we both tie, should it actually be a draw or should the person with the lesser deck win?

Also, and this one may be easier to change than the star count method:

If I win 3 rounds and my opponent wins 1 and we end up with the same amount of life should it still be a draw? Obviously the person can create their deck so they only need to win one round, but that's not only a lazy way of winning the match, but it defeats the purpose of trying to win in general. Technically I won more than my opponent, why should I be penalized with a "draw" if I was able to win 3 rounds to his/her 1?

I've noticed that at the start of a match, the number of Pillz and Life of a player seem to vary but will always add to 25.
For example, I might start with 13 Pillz and 12 Life, but my opponent might start with 12 Pillz and 13 Life.
In one instance, I've noticed my opponent starting with 10 Pillz and 15 Life.
What determines this?

The title says it all. Personally, my favorite is Deea + Naele. The attack manipulation plus the insane power is more than a little fun. Also if you lose a round, you get pills back too!

I'm almost done collecting the Montana deck (I won't be going for Lyse Teria Cr or Vickie Cr as they are crazy prices)
What clan should I move on to next? I want one which I can have fun playing with.

I just notice that Kenjy's description says that there is an university in Riotspolis but in the clan's description it says that Riotsville was drilled apart.. So is this the same place/city? Or is like a City and a Village? Or did I missed something? I'm not an fluent english speaker so I maybe it's just an translating error by me!

Just a thought. New ability/bonus that boosts the next card played.

Defeat: Assist: +2 Damage/Power. When you lose with this card, the next card you use is assisted with +2 damage/power.
Defeat: Assist: Protection: Power/Damage. When you lose with this card, the next card you use gains Protection: Power/Damage

Can make + Life per Damage cards even more deadly if you have + damage, can make some 1HKOs for La Junta/Fang Pi Clang (even in ELO), can make All Stars create nice power gaps if + power, etc.

Can also make your opponent think about putting an extra SoA into the deck (could bring Stop: Ability cards into play?)

I'm sure there could be some sort of balance by looking through the cards, but the idea is lose with 1 card, then the next card becomes stronger (or maybe make opponent's card weaker).

Or, maybe even change the ability to Cripple (probably not Bonus, since they'd probably all be splash cards).
Cripple: -2 Damage/Power. If you win with a card, your next card gets -2 damage/power, min 1.
Cripple: SoA. If you win, your next card doesn't have an ability (In this case, you can't just win with 1 card, then throw out a DR or Defeat: + Life card for life gaps).

These card will have slightly higher base Power/Damage than normal, but winning with them will result in a negative effect for your next card.

Just a question. I rarely see backlash cards used. If backlash- own life could trigger revenge would it become a viable option?

Same with Defeat: -life abilities to trigger confidence.

Would the mechanic be better if it was based on causing damage rather than winning or losing rounds?

I've been thinking with standard gone UR returns to the problem of new cards either being next gen ridic (Mokra, Lear Barduh etc) or total trash that just churns through new blood and is spat in the bin at the end (Most commons etc)

Now standard didnt work because of these next gen ridic cards ruling the format but we still need a new format to play with these new cards in!!! As much as I love Lee Moon, it'd be cool to have to use the guy in a deck somewhere and not for him to just be gangnam styling by himself in my collection

What are your thoughts? Should a new mode be created to cater for this?
Perhaps a new ELO standard be introduced that eliminates ALL RARES (the general problems in releases) from the format
Maybe a format with only common cards being allowed, with certain appropriate bans (i doubt wed need to use them though)
Maybe a format for cards under 5k only, mono only, half deck only?
The possibilities are endless
Id love to hear your ideas of a new mode to cater for the growing trash heap of cards, and even those underused Bob Joby's that everyones dying to use

How about a +2 or +3 Attack per Opponent Life Missing... but I think +3 is OP. XD

So ive been crunching the numbers and worked out the optimal 4 clans to choose for the Titanium pack can be narrowed down to a few combinations and ill explain why in the next few posts
The core 3 clans will be Huracan, Berzerk, GHEIST
With La Junta, Fang Pi and Vortex as your best options for the fourth contendor

Note: That as of tomorrow that new clan will definitely take the fourth spot over the other 3

I think an ability that could add an interesting dynamic to the game would be Defeat, but it punishes the player who was defeated. For example, you add a powerful card (8 and 5, 3 stars) to a powerful clan such as Junkz. You then give the card the ability Defeat: -3 pillz, min 2. So if you lose with that card, you also lose 3 pillz. I think this could make for some interesting play.

Hey everyone, I just started playing again after a very long time away.
I'm a little rusty now, and I want to improve my deck.

What do you think of it, and what changes would you make?
