Oh no, I am so disappointed Uranus is no longer banned. She is seriously overpowered. I think she deserves a ban since similar cards like Jeena and Ulrich are banned.Her ability and Jeena's ability are both stopped by SOA clans, but with her attack manipulation, she can be used as an offensive character in those situations. Like Ulrich, Uranus can have her ability inactivated by SOA cards from non-SOA clans, but since most players only have one such card per hand, a skilled player can usually avoid playing either of these cards against the SOA card. UR, please reconsider banning Uranus again in the future.
I am satisfied, however, with the Mokra, Troompah, and Dorian bans. I don't think Greem deserves a ban since her poison isn't as strong as Karrion's (she has a higher min), and she is in a clan with only one reliable dr, Redra. Oshitsune might be banned again in the future. Oshitsune's ability is very powerful considering most cards are 7 power or less, and his bonus makes him immune to attack manipulation clans. Additionally, he can inflict 7 damage which is a lot. in my opinion, he is Caelus with one less star and a better clan bonus.
I agree with Mokra being banned too soon sentiment. It is a new card, I think you should've left him to be enjoyed and hatet in ELO for a while longer. Pretty much the same wrong decision as with Kalindra... Though Mokra is much more fairer in price department and as such more fairly available to a wide number of players.
This 2 characters got killed in ELO too soon.
But oh well, if I can no longer abuse Mokra I will abuse Uranus instead. It's not like I can change them bans.
Also Rescue cries are coming from players who wanted to enjoy OP'ish Rescue play that's all. Rescue is not dead in ELO and you know it. And Oshitsune is countered by all too many ELO staples in Rescue (Sue, Cliff, Sledg, Kerry, Buckler, Pastor, Slyde) so don't be ridiculous.
Mokra is nowhere near kalindra. Mokra is a great card but not like kalindra. Mokra would have seen less and less play as the weeks progressed. Without Uranus he is nothing they have him and average cards. He needs other cards. You cant wait a few rounds and all out fury him like kalindra who required no skill. Maybe its just me but he doesn't bother me too much. I'm not saying he isnt an amazing card but how many rings did lebron get with the cavs? (Not trying to start a lebron vs x argument)
