The days of the Pile Tower being nothing but a fighting ring are long gone. The new League launched by the Huracan clan has been kicked off with the arrival of their supreme chief. The mysterious luchador and national hero of Los Santos has finally set foot in Clint City.

Level 5, Huracan leader, Noctezuma has come to make the Government of Clint City shake in its boots. But will he get off to a flying start by crushing the underground business of Level 3, Montana member, Waller? On the other side of town, Level 4 Skeelz professor, Kephren has set out to nab all the students who skipped school to go to the rave of Level 2 Junkz techno harpist, Jarez.

5 new missions have been added. Find the list of Newblood missions by clicking on the Missions tab.

EDIT : We made a mistake with Noctezuma's Ability. We are currently fixing it.
Its Ability is not Reprisal : Copy Opp. Power and Damage but Reprisal : Copy Opp. Bonus.
We blocked and canceled all market operations on the character while we are fixing the problem.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Why people are to scared about new strong cards? Every time a good card came every time people say to ban and when comes medium "He should be stronger" when comes weak "rubish just for collection"
What you want people?

We wouldn't be that scared if the last OP cards weren't banned. Or the ones before them. And so on.

@Cole-Kid, be that as it may, you must question how common those threats are, whether you can "dodge" them, and if the card fairs better than many other cards.

A card like Caelus could easily dodge an all stop, could win against some all stars cards(you'd only need one more pill than jessie, Saki, Robb Cr, Nathan, Karen, Marina, Oyoh, El Gringo, Striker, etc. Guru is weak to DR, but not a vulnerable target like Michael of the skeelz. As for kolos, his bonus cancels mono soa clans, so it shouldn't be hard to dodge an SOA.

What more, a card like jackie Cr has few likely weaknesses, if any.

The point of putting ELO bans is to balance ELO. That's why people want OP cards to get banned. Seems relatively straight-forward. If you want to play with your Noctezuma, just play it in a non ELO mode...

Thats true but some cards are ban for no reason:
Arno - SOA + DR awesome but he just have 4 Power you will always win with same pillz and same pillz with opp and he have less Life is a advantege and you go and play a card with 2 Damage ..
Dolly - Poison 2 min 1 but just 7 Power easy to take down and vs gheist and roost you know ..
Grudj - Freak dont have any bonus to help so that cards should have abilitys to use more pillz.
Bristone - Same than Arno but this card still better with 6/4 maybe yes maybe no.
Askai - Same than Grudj ..
Sylth Cr - This is only create to be used on Elo and he is banned ..
Trompah - Same than Askai
Gil - Is like Hawkins but SOB still better than + 8 Attack so he should come back.
Rowdy - Very Balanced card but what SOB or SOA just weak him and battle with alot of pillz he just get owned
Emeth - Same than Trompah
Avola - Cmon I miss Montona but what they can do without best 5* that shouldnot be baned
Mona - SOA Kill her and SOB balance the game but like Avola this is the best 3* that shouldnot be banned
Smokey Cr - 7 Power 3 Damage meh
Bonnie Ld - LD should not be banned and she is not that OP

Dolly, Sylth Cr, Muze, Azel, Grudj, and Greem - Banned to reduce the amount of Poison decks.
Arno, Jeena, and Bristone - "SoA + DR awesome" Exactly.
Askai and Troompah - High attack with massive damage in a clan with amazing low stars to save space.
Lou and Gertjan - Banned to keep the hippies down, man.
Elvira and Lea - Banned to keep Rescue from using too many high stars.
Bonnie Ld and Smokey Cr - You underestimate pill manipulators.

@Killua, all the poisons you mention take down over 50% of your opponents life, which in ELO is what a call OP. Even if in one case it's the freaks bonus, those +2 pillz on grudj can make the difference of +16 attack. Very powerful on an already 8 power card.

If we unban Caelus, Sylth, Askai, Dorian, and Kolos, we'd have too many high star cards that would be easy to splash. Too easy. A deck with Daussone, Lea, Anita sue, slyde, Kerry, Suzie and Sylth Cr would work out very well(poison + life gain + force pill is excellent, especially with DR. The deck would have 12 attack gain, 9 with Sylth.

Against SOA or SOB, Rowdy has 6 damage and can fight well enough if you pill enough. 6 damage is quite high on a 4*. Paired with reducing pillz and some SOB junkz, you have lots of ways to reduce the opponents pillz.

SOA is quite more OP than you let it live up to. Lou is the only one I'd agree should be unbanned, but I think she was bamned before arno and jeena(could be wrong), so I see the reason then.

Bonnie would be an amazing 2* splash. Possibly better than spiagi... Soooo... Yeah.

As for Avola, that 9 life gap is just too impressive coming from a clan with so much space for 2*s. Mona wins almost any fight she has her ability and bonus in, and doesn't fair half badly with either of them alone. With Montana mono advancing, these bans are appropriate.

Emeth: + 20 attack makes him almost unstoppable. At least pillzken can be taken down by power reduction and Raven by sheer power.

Answer to this subject

Clint City, day.
