We have been pretty quiet on UR since too many months. We know you have a lot of questions and concerns left without answers about the game you (used to) love.
Not everything we have done those past months and year was good. We know this, and we are not afraid of rolling back about those features. You are waiting for changes, updates, corrections ; I am going to give you some of our plans for the next months about UR.
- bug / issue corrections. If you want to help us by reporting issues we may not know about, please check this topic : http://www.urban-rivals.com/en/community/forum/?mode=viewsubject&forum_page=0&id_subject=2412404&subject_page=0#answers
- DT gameplay rollback : we will go back on our old and beloved T1 & T2 DT's, and slightly tweak it to achieve a good competitive balance
- DT prizes modification : I cannot go deep into the details as it is not completely defined yet, but here is a little description :
-> no more Cr lottery, we will add a Cr token system
-> you will win Cr tokens according to your rank in a DT / performance
-> you will be able to spend your Cr tokens on Cr packs
-> 1 pack = 1 random Cr
-> there will be several Cr packs ; the higher Cr pack's price, the higher value of the Cr you will obtain by opening it
-> Cr tokens will most certainly NOT be sold in the shop, which means you will have to play one way or another to get a Cr pack
-> a Cr pack will be expensive, so it will take time to get Cr's this way
-> what issues this Cr tokens system solves : a lot less randomness in DT's prize awarding (thus more fairness) ; Cr's (a bit) more accessible, as you will unavoidably get one at some point
- Pack shop rollback / modification : the newest packs we made half a year ago (new Nb, etc.) were controversial. Thus, we are studying a new pack shop, combining the strength of the old and new pack shops to provide you a better offer with a large price range
- a surprise for the beginning of the new year, which will be the starting point of UR's rebirth time
So this was what is coming for sure during the next months. More will come. What is for sure is that UR is going to evolve in many ways and catch up.

Keeping the ELO voting system the same, but implementing a new thing; ELO restrictions, in my humble opinion, would be fantabulous. For example; Yayoi is unbanned. However, she can only be used in a deck of 7 other pussycat cards/ 6 pussycat cards and one Leader (all elo legal). It would be complicated, but really, really nice. And then the Big 5 and Jackie and Kalindra etc are still permabanned. Or something like; Robb is unbanned in ELO; however, you cannot use Saki if you use Robb. Probably not going to happen, but worth a shot.
I feel like talking about stuff thats not working, it seems relevant since this topic is about he future of UR. This is a fun game but there are some flaws ok. The evolution system is pointless and I know its not something that UR can fix but you know those cards that allow you to use their abilities before maxing???? Well what if UR allows the player to choose to max the card at that level or the next one heh. It would give some purpose for the whole evolution process. Also I have to say that the public preset section SUCKS and its out of control. The highest rated decks are outdated...the most popular decks are rated by guild members/ some friends....this isnt freaking facebook people!!!! Look I ask for a more reasonable deck rating system that's not about showing off cr's or about popularity and friendship. I want players to rate decks properly and why not reward the player for rating the deck, even if the reward is minimal its ok right? like 25 clintz for rating 10 decks or something c'mon UR you guys keep coming up with cards/ events/ modes but you guys forget about the other stuff...OH and manga trading card game?? you freaking joking heh. THIS AINT MANGA THIS IS FRANGA! lol...sort the game out please
Speaking of public presets, there really needs to be a better search function for that section and the events section. Sometimes I want to enter a lottery, but that means going through 600+ pages to find them. It would be so much easier if we could find events by keyword since the fact the word "lottery" is in different languages as well like "sorteo."
@G-H-O-S-T 4D that whole presents thing isn't something wrong with UR, its all to do with the players, its much easier to find presents of your friends, and give them compliments, where as to a stranger its alot harder as there are SO many presents out there. UR can't really do something about your problem.
And giving prizes wouldn't be too helpful cuz all you are doing is making people rate decks to gain clintz, they arn't doing it because they are genuinely trying to help other players.
Finally, yes, ofcourse older presents have higher ratings, they've been out there longer so more people have seen them
Maybe next year they'll make changes. Or next year. Or next year. maybe next decade.
