ELO: Votes and restrictions
Euzebe - Titan English - Tuesday 08/09/2009, 10:14

We've already told you that we were going to see how things would be going with the secret voting system about possible changes in ELO mode. And that's exactly what we’ve done.

Firstly, we’ve decided to leave the voting system as it is. It works well and should work even better in the future with characters banned thanks to votes.

We've checked voting results and the most frequently played characters in ELO stats.
We've decided to permanently ban 5 characters: Kolos, Marco, Zatman, Hawk and Ratanah.

Kolos is permanently banned because it was obvious that you did not want him in ELO any more. He’s been banned nearly every weeks since the voting system release and we thought it was pointless to keep on using your votes against him.

Marco, Zatman, Hawk and Ratanah have also been frequently banned by your votes so we thought that these permanent bans would offer a fairer game.
Admittedly Ratanah was banned less often than Shakra but we calculated that her ban would greatly help in reducing the Roots' dominance while still making them playable. Whereas Shakra’s ban would have left the Roots with very strong chances of building powerful half-decks for a reasonable amount of stars.

We didn’t want to ban any All Stars or Piranas (Smokey or Striker, for example) even if they were concentrating a large part of votes. We figured out you would be more free to vote and decide by yourselves which characters need to be remove from ELO.

Have fun !

They used to ban clans, but changed it to this format. Think they said that banning clans meant those clans couldn't play for a week, but this way even if a clan loses a few key cards that you could still play them even if they've been weakened.

Oh, and if clan bonus is active, caelus kills jackie. Actually, with clan bonus caelus kills more cards than jackie. Just had some 'fun' this morning with 9+1 pills caelus killing a 12+1 pill Askai for example. Course you lead this with a 3+1 pill Sandro so you can KO with caelus. Very little anyone without DR can do really.

No Ratanah, no Roots any more in ELO, unless you need a cheap supporting cast half deck. They didn't ban Shakra, but it's banned by the votes every week. Just look at who are the second best 4* and 5* and you'll see the chances of putting togther a decent Roots deck.

If they unbanned Ratanah, wouldn't Shakra have to be perma-banned then?

You certainly can't have them both around. It's already "scary" as is with Shakra being released ever few weeks or so.

Okay. Out of the current elo banned cards, I think that Either Marco or Alec should be allowed back. But not both. 1 or the other. Also Zatman. Uppers need somekind of boost in elo and a decent 3 star isn't too bad. Also maybe Wee Lee to see more Ulu Watu in Elo.

Cards that I think should be banned next are Caelus, Morphun, Marina and Copper

I think marco should be allowed, he is exactly as copper but with a lightly stronger bonus, he can be stopped with SOA and most of the time, like copper, he will be in the ELO prison

Guys the point is that they allowed Marco back and he was wayyy to overpowered. Unless you're facing SoA he's a completely unstoppable machine, and Sledg is also a good replacement. Think of how overpowered this deck is:

Marco - Sledg - Anita - Elvira - Slyde - Krash - Lea - Steve

SoA, SoB, two DR, life gain, and a couple of unstoppable powerhouse 5* cards. SoA weakens it, but Sledg, Anita and Elvira can survive, and if you have SoB then you either have Sledg, Marco, Lea or Elvira to help from there..

Allowing Alec Cr back is even worse. He's too pricey for the newer players, and combined with Elvira can make a deadly 2hKO. He's only 4*, so he allows for a balanced deck containing Kerry, Glosh and him, or a unbalanced deck with Sledg. SoA stops him but his 4 damage isn't so bad (Gibson, Azgroth) especially with the bonus and 7 power. Rescue don't need anything in ELO at the moment, they have recently had Krash and Sledg as excellent releases, Aurora is a great card too.

As for Wee Lee, he should remain banned but Ulu should receive another DR. Maybe 3* 7/4 -2 opp damage min. 1 to KO with Stanly..

Copper is certainly dead when facing SOA. Marco is still a p5 with +12 atk as bonus, which is far more stable than P4+8atk.
