About 50% of bans is uncalled for, the other is questionable at best. I fail to understand the reasons. ELO has just become less fun.

These clans can survive without these OP cards. Yookie has many replacements. Olga was as OP as Spyke (but different situations). Askai created a 11 life game with big attack manip. Azel is a instant 50/50 to win the game. Muze is also a 50/50 to win the game. Robb Cr for his ability and bonus. Kalindra because she was the king of all noob cards. Dolly is another 50/50 card. If you look at it like that are these bans really uncalled for? ELO is now better then it was 3 months ago IMO.

Here are the reasons:
Azel, Olga, Muze, and Dolly were banned because the staff are trying to reduce the number of Poison decks.
Kalindra was banned because she is overpowered. She can have 10 power and 16 gap.
Askai was not as overpowered, but still very powerful and in a clan that's dominating the meta.
Yookie was banned because he's a great all-around card in Roots. The staff is always wary of Roots.
That leaves Robb Cr. He's a bit of an odd choice, but he's already been replaced by Saki, so there's no reason to complain.

Kalindra was another really oddly designed card, much like Spyke... I'm kinda glad she's gone now. In ELO, a legitimate strategy with a Frozn deck was:

1. Do nothing
2. Do nothing
3. Do nothing
4. 10 pillz + fury on Kalindra
5. Win

Kalindra was OP but there were so many ways to stop her or slow her down, it's not even funny. DRs of 3 or better, SoB, KO threats, other LPD cards, round-winners who could contend with a 10 power, and last but not least, the ever popular SoA. The strategy you described worked maybe 1 out of 12 games, only against the most unfortunate draws. Good ELO players understood Kal's weaknesses and built decks accordingly. That was all there was to it.

I for one am glad that she was around to shake things up for a little bit... But, I would not like to see her come back.

I'd just like to mention the oracle's post from a 1-8-13:

"Sakrohm is fairly unplayable in the high level play so Uranus is not THAT potent. He was a card that was long hated, but was a big middle finger to cards such as Kalindra and Beeboy. I dont even see those cards that overpowered, reason being that.

but yes, if the Sakrohm gets a strong release (strong SoA release something like 7/7 Courage: SoA) then Uranus should be banned"

And now they have a 7/6 soa no courage LOL. He's psychic.

Yah thank you!!! next clan to get an SoA should be sentinels, they have been lacking a GOOD one since the ban of Hawk.

umm my guess.... 7/4 Courage: SoA 3*

It's been a year. I strongly suggest to have an elo update.
