After a Xantiax gas leak in the air ducts of the Red One Motel, all the staff and hotel guests were transformed into fearsome beings, possessed by a fury that can only be appeased by intense fighting. In fact, they would have ripped each other to pieces for time immortal if Cortez hadn't united them under a common cause: to find those responsible for their situation and make them pay!

smiley Review of Gus smiley

Stats: 6/5
Ability: courage: +3 power

Overview: Everyone in the game when they first set eyes on this card immediately said to themselves: "This card reminds me Burger". This is very true as they have the exact same stats, the exact same ability, and to an extent the exact same bonus. Gus is the second 4* release to the clan but there is a high level of "Deja Vu" surronding this cards release.

In testing: I maybe going against the current here but I love this card smiley . Not overly surprising as I also like Burger for some reason... Gus with courage gives him an incredibly good 9 power. Mixed with superb damage (with bonus) this card gets even more brownie points from me.

However let's not get ahead of ourselves as this card is very flawed. The courage is clearly not set in stone because of SOA. The card is also very inflexible as you will only be able to play it 2/4 rounds in the match where counters can be readily available for him during the 2 rounds. This means the card will get shut down in any form of competitive ELO smiley .

The problems continue with the heavy backlash in the clan. The sadness is backlash requires SOA to release the scary cards from their curses for winning. By leading with this card you are drawing the SOA from those cards.

Despite his problems this card has one really good thing about him. Gus is the only card (apart from kawamashi) who can open properly because of his power unlike the rest of the clan who are suited for late game activity.

Playstyle: Very easy to play with this card. Play on his courage turns. If your opponent has SOA in his hand approach with caution and avoid facing it at all costs. If hard to play due to SOA then use him as a throwaway card or as a bluff.

In Conclusion: So is he like Burger? Yes. Is he fun to play with? Of course! Gus has his own niche in the opening. Will he be replaced any time soon? Most likely but for now he is definitely better than the backlashing Beef. However as I always say courage is never a bad thing, your opponent just has to be ready for it.

3/5 stars

Berzerk Review #8

Gus

smiley
+ His nice ability pumps him up to 9 power
+ Good 5 dmg with bonus sets up 2hitkos

smiley
- Courage based abilities have 2 flaws: Can only be used in 50% of the rounds and can be countered easily.
- Without his ability he only has 6 power which is low for 4 stars

Summary:
Gus´ ability puts him at 9 power thus allowing you to bluff, attack, and keep up with power +2 clans and his 5 dmg plus bonus allows a lot of other Berzerk to close in for the kill. but his ability can be easily predicted and sadly, Gus is not good without it.

Usefulness: 75%
Price/Quality: 80%

Gus 6/5 ability:courage +3 power bonus: -2 opp life min 2

pros:
a decent 6 power and with his ability becomes 9 power that's awesome
5 damage is decent and with their bonus he becomes a monsterous 9/7 and that is amazing cause that stats are for 5 stars
a 9/7 coming at you is very threatening
and if by chance your opponent has no dr or soa then he might be in trouble

cons:
the presence of soa is common in elo in the form of Roots and GHEIST and to sum things up he is courageously played making the opponent play a soa against him
the Berzerk is a bit made to counter soa (Beef,Norman,Melanie,Taylor) and he does not fit for that criteria.
sphiagi and Uranus still effectively reduces his damage

overall: 8/10 He is better than Beef for me, it is true that his performance is bad with soa but a good player can play unpredictably no matter what happens so given the situation you encounter soa the opponent may think he's just for bluff and then when the fight starts the opponent is suprised as you put a few pillz on Beef and you win and dealt that 7 damage.Great card!!

Gus......the 'yes he's bloody similar to Burger' card

Well as i have said, and every man and his dog on the game has said, this card is similar to Burger, both stat wise and useage wise...but what does that mean?

Well like Burger he can be very strong, standing at a possible 9/7 Gus can power his way through alot of cards, problem is that 9 power is only possible in 2 rounds, and playing with him 'unpredictabely' at no courage is very risky due to hs sort-of weak- 6 power, which is going to fail to alot of calns.

A BIGGGG problem is his predictability, now the enemy can see him coming and either position an SOA to attack him (he aint doin crap against Quibik/ Bryan etc) or just position a DR to block him. GHEIST and Roots are another story, not actually as bad as you can play unpredictabely and get away with it.

Look in the end, like Burger he has the potential to be good, like Burger he's predictable and like Burger he will definately be replaced in the future (so far by Revok but hopefully we'll get better 4*)
7/10

The Review:
A Raw Burger or a Burger with ketchup.
As we can all see that Burger and Gus are almost identical in the basics, however Gus is more flawed then Burger and in some ways more superior. However I feel Burger is much better suited to his clan where as Gus is not. we all see that 9 and think this guy is going to slide in seven damage easily, however this is not true. After playing with him enough times I find he is a magnet for DRs as well as SoA. Which is nice because it keeps it off of people like Kostner or Lola, however it is not something I am willing to waste four stars on, in fact I am more appreciative of Backlash as you grow to play around these wounds. Elvis is the number 1 four star in any deck, always will be until he gets ELO banned and he will so just accept it. Revok does the same amount of Damage but can return pills which is nice and he gets three chances to use his ability where as Gus gets two. So Beef or the big Red Burger. Beef has a reliable seven power and more damage, though yes Beef has a low minimum on his Backlash which does become annoying, but if you play Berzerker you should have gotten used to how to deal with that, so given that a T1 deck can only have four four stars you could take them all, but honestly that would not work as they do not gel. So frankly consistency is one of the most important things a card has going for it and Gus is just not that and I can rely on my Beef to throw down severe damage in any round Gus I cannot. The future may look brighter for him if we can see a few more attack manipulation cards like Miho appear, but to be honest even then he just falls short of the other monsters, this clan has to offer and in a half why would I bother as there is a chance he becomes a predictable 9/5 where as Beef still is a nice solid 7/6 which allows me to 2 hit much easier.
Overall 7.5/10 Future 7/10
