Ill only respond to OP of this thread, cuz later this went more into ban/unban topic.
I dont completely agre with you Prinz (actually, only part that I agree is the cost of some new cards, but about that later). New cards that are coming out arent that powerfull so that they cant be countered. From the ones you named, only Kalindra, which you can SOA, DR, heck, even SOB hurts her, or also fight, and to some extent Clover
, which can be also dealt with. Others, not so much, if not at all. Jean
? Seriously, Jean
? Being OP? Where? Diana
, a much needed PC at that time. Lucy
, a wall. Situational X-0DUS
? And Troompah
wich gets devasteted with SOA (Jean
eats her). None of them are OP. "These cards completely change entire clans from being unusuable to useable" and that is exactly their part here, or do you think some clans should always get great cards, while others should get bad onse? Do you want to see only few clans everywhere?
The reason some cards cost so much is because of market manipulators and maybe the fact that some got a preview on FB. I dont like it either, but after few NB they go down and are closer to their real value.
And for you ban system, it works kinda well, the better score you have, the more votes you get, so use them wisely. If a clan has many good cards (not OP, good) that doesnt mean some should be banned, it means everyone has a bigger choice for his deck, which I support, cuz I like to face different decks instead of the same ones.
