As the crème-de-la-crème of the jet-set, the Uppers rule the night. They’ve got it all, and money, champagne and titles are certainly not in short supply. They generally dislike everyone but they particularly despise “the poor who just aren’t the teeniest bit funky”. The Uppers hope that the government will finally take steps to banish ugly people once and for all.

"The Uppers hope that the government will finally take steps to banish ugly people once and for all."

Herman - Lard and in Charge.

Herman, since his arival, has drawn a large number of mixed opinions.
Is he good? Is he bad? Is he T2 material, or is he T2 only? Is he for Elo? How much does he weigh? Can those little robo-lets realisticly support him??

-Massive 8 damage, allows him to 2HKO with many of the clan's less infamous members. Harold, Frankie Hi, and even a furious Wendel are all amongs the mix of characters. Outside of Elo, theres the lethal combination of Zatman to consider.
-Mass power reduction means your opponent will need a stagering 3 pills to climb past his Uppers bonus (if reduced to 4)
-Due to his bonus, and his damage, he CAN situationaly (SITUATIONALY) function, to an extent, without his ability.

-His star count is a chunky as he is..., which is pretttyy damn chunky
-He takes quite a bashing from SoA
-Sob hurts, although, not as much as SoA
-All stops murder him, however, they do so to most cards.
-Attack manipulators hurt quite a bit

My biggest problem with Herman is that he doesen't quite seem to fit in anywhere, other than T2 survivor ofcorse. In T2 dailys, the clasic 6-damage 2HKO Uppers/Montana deck doesen't need his beefy 8 damage to kill. In Elo, however, he could possible make a difference (i'll continue this in another post).

All in all, i'll give him a 7.5/10. Could be a 8.5, or even a 9, but Herman is far too boxed out by his clan. Who knows though, someone might break new water with mono-Uppers

@i da top beast
Flavio Cr gave your hair split ends.
the General Cr gives you the look of death while smoking his Cuban (he might take a side trip to over through the gov).
Kolos looks at you funny before shrugging and eating the city.
Angie looks like she gona slap you off side the head with her sticks
nehema breaks a string thinking that Greow might think so 2.
Lao Cr and Lost Hog just sit and stare at you.
Sigmund Cr starts throwing bread at you while looking at his seagull expectantly.
Fuzz spiked your drink.
Charlie puts her clothes back on.
Cliff grins like a maniac.
Caeleus Cr looks down at his feeble frame and shakes his head kids these days.
Sum Sam Cr ... thinks you might be right.

rate green if you believe not all 8 damage cards are fat

People need to stop saying "SOA kills this card" on every single character that comes out. If an ability is good then taking away that ability is the way you deal with it. This is the basic idea behind what an ability is. It should be noted that Uppers are lacking good 5 stars other than Dorian, and Herman beats 8 power opponents much better than Dorian in addition to doing more damage. He two hit KO's with virtually any upper, or one hits with C Wing, and Dorian does niether. So okay SOA is is kryptonite, but even against Roots or GHEIST he does so much damage that you can't just assume someone won't spend a lot of pills to him.

People seem to have mixed feelings about Herman, and for some reason, are comparing him to cards that are completely in a different clan. Truth of the matter is, Herman is an exceptional card, and, most importantly, he's not overly broken.
Yes, he's weak to SOA, as are most other cards out there. Yes, he relies heavily on his bonus to be viciously effective. Basically, Herman has the same weaknesses as most other cards out there. Yet there's good reason for it. For a card that can rip an 8 powered card down to his level, and then proceed to negate two of it's pillz with just his bonus, these weaknesses justify the power of the card. We've seen such destructive force in the the 4* princess, Nellie, who has been a longtime staple in the clan, being favored over cards that many would consider more stable, like Beetenka and Wayne Stark. If people favored stability over the risks of losing to SOA or SOB, then Nellie wouldn't even be a contender for the 4* slot, but we can obviously see this isn't the case. Herman is no different, being the exact same in every way as Nellie, except adding a bit more punch when he gets through. Herman is a card to be feared, and while he's not as stable as Dorian, he has much more capacity to pull out wins, given the tried and true combination of power cutting and attack manipulation. Uppers needed a 5* beast to replace Dorian on his weeks off, and Herman fills that role well, if not exceeding it.

Uppers' Member Review #003
Herman ::

Herman... that fat good for nothing. I actually first made my fortunes through Herman, so you're probably thinking why I despise that greasy totty. Well.. I first founded the Uppers whilst I was working at Herman's hugely money-making food businesses. And the obvious thing to do was invite my boss to the clan.. no problems! But I felt inspired one day to go out and make my fortunes through my own efforts, so I sent a resignation letter to Herman... what do you mean why didn't I tell him myself? That pudding would have sat on me! And ever since then I have been too scared to approach Herman and tell him to leave the clan.. I guess I'll just have to put up with it.

Elo - I think he'll see mixed use in Elo, depending on the bans. If another no-SoA week comes along, this guy might just take Uppers into the big leagues. That said, he doesen't work well with the fabled magic 6 2HKO half deck we are all used to seeing. He does, however, bring the less-used cards, such as Frankie Hi, into the game. I foresee quite a few quite a few potent mono-Uppers decks will show themselves in the comming weeks, especialy with the new themed-elo bans.

All in all, a good card, but Uppers simply doesen't have the structure to support him. Ruby and Oxen both fill the 3* slots, which his 2HKO counterparts, such as Frankie Hi, and Harold, would need. Unless people are willing to step into uncharted teritory, Herman simply doesen't seem to have a home.

No doubt he'll see use in the ocational 'try-something-new' deck, but if he'll ever make it, is down to the meta-game.
That said, mono-Uppers Death Match. Herman + Zatman. Only time will tell smiley

Backstage with Dorian: Post-interview Diaries

Entry 1: Herman Gristle

I've decided to write an evaluation (and by that I mean vent anger behind the backs of) eveyrone I interview! Today's guest on my show, "Daily Dorian" was Herman. Eurgh. Herman. We Uppers believe everyone should be beautiful, and what do we get? Herman. Herman!! I couldn't list everything that's gross about him if you gave me two thousand A4 pages! He's ugly, arrogant (not that I can put him down for that, but I'm me, so it's okay) and kinda creepy. Once, at one of our parties he got really drunk and groped Nellie. Then he gave her one thousand Clintz and said they were "on the house". Oh, and then there's his hatred for Zlatar. There are times when Herman gets really drunk and tries to smash our diamond wine glasses across Zlatar's head! I don't care for Zlatar much myself, but I'll never be able to drink from those glasses knowing it had his freaking blood on it!

Eurgh, I can't write anymore about Herman without throwing up. Hopefully I get to interview someone interesting for my next episode, like Wendel or Maurice. Actually, anyone aside from Herman would do fine. Even Mickey T or Bob freaking Joby would be better.

@ i da top beast
Vicki Cr resents that she'll have you swimming with the fishes of clint river in cement shoes.
Chloe will let her

rate green if not all 8 damages are fat.

Zlatar has 8 damage and all I see is a large bald head, pasty skin and a bony physique.

Jeeves has 8 damage and I don't see him getting any flabbier soon.

Wednesday 08/02/2012, 17:21

@ dark knight cr and @ The_Guy LoA

da top beast said that all the fat people have 8 damage, not that all 8 damage cards are fat. This is a big difference.
You are naming 8 damage people.

To everyone that says Herman should get kicked out cuz he is ugly, why do you think they let him join ? Cuz he has MONEY !!!! If you have money, you can get everywhere....
