Urban Rivals, in it's current state, has made some good choices and bad choices (I'd say the bad choices are more see-able and overshadow the good choices)
I will tell you this...
-Levels don't matter
-ELO is unbalanced
-Urban Rivals population has not changed in size, at least in a good way.
-Deathmatch is a completely useless mode now. (Used to be the room you would mission now)
Just to point out some of the bad things about UR. What would you change about UR to make it a game that could keep new and upcoming players while keeping older players happy?
Which is giving them more options to draw that high star hand?
Seriously, they got two 5* support cards in a very short timespan.
I'd say there are several basic things UR could do, such as help event creation become better with additional rules / easier to manipulate the deck formats to certain styles, and simple stuff like making public presets easier to filter (e.g. limit to X clans, clan X and NOT clan Y, etc.)
Top of my list for quite some time:
- timeout or quit counting as KO
- unfair play being punished harsher. Or at all, really.
Reducing DM timer to 30 seconds a round would make me happy. I play my turn in 10 seconds and the noob opponent takes 1 minute to do their move.
Post 36, great idea, my opponents sometimes take about 45ish seconds, i do my calculating and thinking when my opponent is doing their move, so I play mine as soon as it's my turn.
I also contacted CS and gave them an idea for a fan-fic page for UR, they said it'd be sent to the developers. Hopefully they make it.
Id like to take all of the noobs off the market because when a card spikes all they do it within 24 hours drop it back down to the price it was at by underselling each other rather than having patience on a sale lol
I'd like a better system in place for encouraging sportsmanlike play and behavior, with some kind of tangible benefits/penalties. I know people can get a little vicious at high ranks in any competitive game, but I feel like it's starting to escalate to the same levels that made me shy away from many more "serious" games. Ultimately people come here to relax and have fun... But I see too many players who talk trash, deliberately time out against someone who they feel beat them in a "nooby" way, etc.
