Hey repeat, ya partially true. but the most commonly used cards were the ones that were pretty strong. the most common clans were the ones that were generally strongest... so banning the most popular cards, nerfs the most popular clans, which leads to more parity between the clans (planned or not, that is the effect it has)
@shadow, info shared for the purpose of clarifying points are fine, which it was. info shared with malicious intent is not. ie. if a player claims to be to be good at ELO
and offers his advice claiming they are awesome --- and i look and see this dude is just winning slightly over 50%... or if i see he failed to even get above 1200 in a week where he obviously tried --- thats definitely being called out on privately at least, probably not publicly since it would be a bit harsh. if i a person is auctioning a big card or offering to trade big cards, and it show they dont own it, thats gonna be a public naming and shaming.
sorry data/fact/statistic back up points made by people, otherwise discussion gets reduced down to who barks the loudest, barks the most, or barks most convincingly.... which is a rubbish way to determine the validity of statements
