Today sees the launch of the Standard Format. This new format revolves around a list of characters that are updated every 6 months and only includes characters that were released less than 3 years before the current update (including Ld characters). Only these characters, Leader cards and characters from starter packs will be used in the Standard Format. To enable you to clearly distinguish between characters authorized in Standard Format and those which are not, we've added a special background to each character illustration, which you may have already noticed.

Happy gaming to you all!
Tititoro, maybe you can't read properly at least in english. In the case I'm right, let me enlighten you:
There's a room for those cards, and it's called "extended".
(Extracted literally from: http://www.urban-rivals.com/standard/ )
"The Quick Battle tool will put you up against decks with a similar number of stars to your own, making the distinctions provided in T1 and T2 redundant in these rooms."
Read that? it means that if you build a deck with , let's say , 26 *, the system will pair you with someone who made a deck with 25*, 27*, or so , presumably to avoid roflstomping and overpowering
So Low star count ELO-banned cards aren't obsolete yet
Next time pay more attention to the UR staff announcements before blarghing and claiming about stuff. Thanks in advance.
Greyjackson , it's not that confusing. In a nutshell:
a) added a new game mode, that only allows the use of newer cards.
b) fused T1 and T2 with a new battle system "auto-sort-by-starpoint" , and they call it "extended"
I think the diversity they are trying to make is good, but not in that kind of form. People had cards, decks and strategy build around previous rooms (including me), and now almost everything is garbage. They should make new rooms and leave the old ones as they were.
Overall i am disappointed in the new change and i hope UR will change it back, because now it looks like they are making fun out of players.
"3/ Why will Extended and Standard DTs alternate instead of having them at the same time?
If we do that, having DTs at the same time, it's more likely you'll find one of the two format more efficient than the other because of the playable characters."
Yet at the moment, both are played at the same time...
Also, is the matchmaking fixed for good and we can judge how it's working now that it's working properly?
It takes few mins to find the banned characters , anyway - here is the list -
DJ Korr Cr
La Junta (1)
Lyse Teria Cr
I'm disappointed w/ the new "will put you up against decks with a similar number of stars to your own" mainly because the lower star decks don't fill their purpose as well anymore
@mahdin The link in the news feed on the home page clears up the issue of multiple entries in the drawing for Cr's. It says
◦The DTs will be rewarded in Crs that will be randomly distributed on a daily basis to players ranking in the first 150 of a DT. Please note that being ranked in the top 150 of several DTs will not increase your chances of winning a Cr
