I like the rules and the limitations, but I'd like to point out some "balance issues":
1) il you ban an ability, ban it everywhere. If you said NO SoA and SoB, I should not find Courage/Revenge/Confidence: SoA and SoB. Not because they are such a problem, but people will likely use a deck with "big abilities" and it mess you up finding out that a clan that does not need help, like the Uppers
, has Wendel
(and that's, a problem);
2) limit the bonus points on pills!! Let's say +4, +5 maximum, or it can really mess up the ranking.
Done so, I believe that colosseum is one of the best modes by now, because there are good prizes and you are not in TQ, where aftere a streak of wins with a 24 stars deck you find yourself against a 38 star deck and just want to kill yourself...
(it's even bettere than ELO
, where a player like me, who had GHEIST
as fist clan, can't play them since 1 year and an half!!).
