Feedback from our survey and forthcoming changes to ELO

Hi everyone,



We’ve closed our ELO survey and carefully considered players’ feedback.
First of all, many thanks to the thousands of players who took part in the survey, which was about 8,000 of you. It has given us a far better overall understanding of your current views on the ELO mode.



This is what stood out and what we plan to put in place:



Those surveyed were on the whole satisfied with how ELO currently works, which is why we are only going to introduce slight modifications so as not to spoil the mode as it stands.



In order to better control the development of ELO, we are going to introduce specific dates for staff bans and marginally reduce the period of time between these bans. We will start off having bans/unbans every four months (i.e. trimestrally) which will take place as follows:



In order to take account of players’ opinions before making a decision, we will carry out a survey in which you can vote for a list of cards that we have selected to be banned and unbanned.

Following the survey, we will draw up a list of provisional cards that will then be published on the forum and debated over for a week, as we did with the previous wave of bans/unbans.



Although you were not entirely happy with the players’ voting system in this mode, you felt it was necessary so you could express your views in a more direct way which would have a tangible effect. For the time being, therefore, we will not make any changes to this area as the number of votes and the percentages required for a card to be banned is an issue of much debate among players, irrespective of their level or seniority in the game. However, several of you did stress that the voting system was not visible enough. We are therefore going to improve its visibility by means of the weekly ELO message in which Kate will invite players to come and vote.

If there are incidents of cards becoming too strong for the mode, we will carry out unscheduled staff bans. However, this will be reserved for exceptional circumstances.



To conclude, we would like to draw your attention to two additional points raised by players:



Winnings in the game mode: We received several comments concerning winnings. We are going to think about how to balance out the winnings between the different modes.



With particular regards to the Huracan clan: in the next few months there will be very few new Huracan releases. The next wave of ELO bans should be able to reduce their dominance in ELO mode. If, however, this continues to be a problem, we will then look into alternative solutions to resolve this issue.

That's good to hear. However note that someone can answer in that type of surveys twice or maybe even more times. The staff needs to find a way to make the survey questionnaire to be one per user

You must balance the wright amount of bend powerful cards between the clans so every clan has to keep some good cards! Like this?

Just what exactly those last two questions about credit purchasing on the survey is what I'm wanting an explanation for...

Seniority does matter. People who are better at ELO and play more are going to be affected much more, there opinion should count for more.

Looks good, thanks UR. On the subject of Elo voting, maybe add a separate section in the app to do that? Just a bit of a pain for mobile players to have to open up a separate browser to do it, and new players may not even know they can. Also a visible list of bans, and a list of cards with dt penalty for mobile would be great!

So does this mean we can have a choice to unbanning old cards now? I feel like Rowdy could be unbanned and be less as broken with all these new card releases, theres a 7/5 with his +12 ability, don't remember who, sure the extra +8 can secure, but there are a ton of stuff to help break that, Gil might need ot stay banned,
