Rotation of the Standard format will take place on Monday, October 1st at 11am (GMT + 2:00). Only cards released after October 2nd 2009 will be valid in Standard format, while cards released before this date will now only be playable in Extended format. The next Standard format rotation will take place on April 1st 2013. Below is a list of the characters excluded from Standard mode:

I posted this breakdown on my guild message board @12.30 this afternoon. It's the room, number of players & percentage of the online users in each room. Standard just appears to be a complete failure with just ~3.5% of players using the format.
Fight Club ------------------ 632 - 20%
Fights Standard -------------- 90 - 2.85%
Fights Extended ------------- 996 - 31.6%
Deathmatch Extended --------- 141 - 4.47%
Deathmatch Extended 25 ------- 36 - 1.14%
Deathmatch Standard ---------- 14 - 0.44%
ELO ------------------------- 571 - 18.11%
Survivor Extended ----------- 320 - 10.15%
Survivor Type ELO ----------- 133 - 4.22%
Lost Warehouse -------------- 135 - 4.28%
Lost Warehouse No Pillz ------ 85 - 2.7%
So can we have a Type 1 room back now?
"How about another relook at the perm elo bans?
Hriger is just about on equal par with Yayoi, but for some reason she is banned."
May be the fact she's actually a damage reducer and in a completely different clan.
Plus, Cats got Diana for their OP 4* cards. Why would they need another one?
"The Junkz have fallen, since the Rowdy and Gil combo ended. I think it's high time Rowdy made a comeback."
True, I mean, all Junkz got are Quibik, Eebiza, Fizzle and Gibson. That's clearly a horrible selection of 4*. I mean, SoA, SoB, Pill manip and DR on cards with respectable stats? That's crap! They need a card that's pretty much a free 6 damage or a major pill gap.
Seeing how Skeelz are now nearly gone, does this mean we'll now start seeing a heck lot of Frozn to balance it out?
Also, I would really like it if you chaps of UR would pick 4-6 characters who stay in despite being out of the format. Some clans are hit a bit too hard by this thing.
Hopefully they focus on evening out the Clans, so the three year rotation doesn't completely demolish some clans.
