After months of trials and taking into account your views (forums, surveys and the X-Periment ELO event), we are officially changing the list of permanent ELO bans: Arkn, Toro, Ghumbo, Bonnie Ld, Sledg, Ulrich and Arno will be banned, while Uranus in now authorized.These changes will come into effect from the week commencing December 05.Happy gaming to you all in ELO mode!
I am never attached enough to a card or a format enough to whine. I just look at the ban list, look at my collection and build something I fancy. However, I do notice that I gravitate towards certain clans more and more often and ones like Bangers require conscious effort to want to build the deck and keep using it. Ones like montana/rescue no-brainer decks are becoming more frequent.
P.S. Montana 2* need some serious nerfing, too good for T2 DT.
Uranus should be unbanned already, but coming off the perma-banned list isn't automatic like putting cards on the ban list. We will have to wait until the UR staff log in and update his status manually
I dont know if this is the place to say this but I had an idea. Im a very average player with average cards and I only really play T1 DT's. I can do ok untill I come across someone who has 2-3 ELO banned cards. They win almost all the time. I know they get the 2 point reduction but I believe that alot of people arnt bothered with winning, but instead use these cards to deny others a win.
A small suggestion I have is to give the 2 point's reduced to the player without the Elo banned cards.
E.g. Player 1 has Bonnie Ld, Ulrich, Hawkins and Tula (2 elo bans = 4 point reduction)
Player 2 has Elea, Nyema, Rodney and Ashiko (no bans)
The 4 points are reduced from player 1 and given to player 2, even if they lose.
2 Stars shouldn't have point pelaties in DT. Please staff don't give them that it is rediculous, use Arkn in DT and it is the same as using a 3 star point wise, but their 3 stars are much more powerful. This happens to all 2 star cards!
2 Stars can't be used in DT because they are the same as 3 stars and 3 stars are better cards 9/10 times. They can't be used in Survivor elo or elo because they are banned. They can't be used in Survivor Type 2 becuase thats for 4 and 5 stars. They can only be used in Type 1 DM (Who plays that) and they can't even be used in Type 2. Banned 2 stars are completely useless now.
I love these new bans, although I will miss my arno . They are all completely justified bans, every single one of those cards is an annoying pest that needed to go. I'm glad Uranus is back, like orpheus said, she's still good, but not nearly as good as she used to be.
If uranus is back sureley we can allow sylth back then, i mean with all the heal cards being released hes not that amazing any more, hes no better than greem since greem has immunity from soa too
I came here to ask why Uranus is unbanned and Urich is now banned instead...but taking time to read the posts I think I understood a bit more of the logic of permanent ban...I think Urlich is weaker than Uranus (same stat, but Uranus Ability is stronger) but if the goal is diversity and multi-dimensional thinking, I guess the staff made a good choice. As for others ban, same stuff (I am thinking for instance to Ghumbo and Askai, similar cards).
Out of curiosity, will be Kolos ever going to be unbanned? It's (probably, not really sure about this) the only 1-hit KO card in UR, it may be interesting to face such a force even in ELO...plus (strong) DR and SoA quite hit him!
