In order to make the ELO mode even more interesting, we’ve decided to add a few more characters to the list of characters banned by staff in ELO. Please note that as with the other characters banned by staff in ELO, two penalty points will be removed in DTs if you have these characters in your team. Here is the list of characters: Smokey Cr, Caelus, Charlie, Wanda, Shakra, Sylth, Striker, Hugo, Morphun, Eyrik, Ambre, Eklore. These bans will come into effect from September 13th.
Although I would expect in 3..2..1..that some people would be posting some things like:
"why is _____ not in here?"
"_____ should be banned as well!"
"now the _____ clan will surely dominate!"
Aw man, goodbye Caelus/Smokey Cr, we'll never forget you!!!
Sharkra: not surprised.
Slyth: Um....oh well, too bad.
Charlie: once again, not surprised, but expect grief.
Wanda: POWERFUL FILLER, understandable.
Striker: This is a surprise. You ban Striker but not Marina?
Leaders: Just what the doctor ordered.
I think all of the bans were a great idea, especially the leaders. I'm glad the staff is listening to the common man's plea. However, it is a shame that Pussycats lost 2 of their clan. I suppose the common Pussycat half deck with now be Brittany, Yayoi, Muze, and the third being either Louise, Noemi, Ditha, or Candice. It's smart that they took Smokey out of ELO after making him Cr. This makes me feel that Caelus will see a similar fate. I think this should definitely be an improvement over the ELO mode from before this last month.
