Player bans...some queries

OK guys a few things I've noticed in weeks gone by...certain card just disappear from the temp ban list and are left to run around ELO. Hello Spyke, Leviatonn and various Sentinel cards

So my question is why is it some weeks cards that will definately be banned for the week somehow make it off the ban list? And the worst part is it's not for one week at a time. For about 4 weeks in a row Leviatonn was just let loose and Ghiest domination ensued....now Spyke is loose again and Berzerk domination will continue for the next few wks

being forced to either 'cant beat em so join em' or 'attempt to counter' certain cards is kinda crappy so yeah, love to hear your thoughts on this

We need no less 20 characters ban for the good of Elo.
To go to 30 will be great.

Using Spyke as an example, lets say that one week he is on the player-banned list. (not uncommon)

That week, the players vote through the format election, and decide that Spyke is FREE! So now, the following week in ELO has Spyke being playable.

During that week, a new format election has begun. "The characters are selected from the top characters from the previous week’s top clans, plus the ones banned after the last vote."

The previous week Spyke was banned, and hence not one of the 'top characters'. Nor was he 'banned after the last vote', the reason he's free in the first place. Not fitting either of these criteria, he escapes the format election.

If a character goes from being player-banned one week to being playable the next, they will always have a minimum of 2 weeks back in the game as they do not appear on the format election for a week.

It is for this reason that when cards like Spyke and Uranus get released from 'ban land', they always have an extended stint of at least 2 weeks before being struck back down by the ban Hammer. These cards usually get abused in the week that they become playable, hence why they appear back on the format election the week after (but remain usable through that week)

If that made sense to any of you who read this, congratulations. NOTE: I agree that the system is rather odd.

The characters are selected from the top characters from the previous week’s top clans, plus the ones banned after the last vote.

If a card is unbanned but the clan still isn't played much then the card might not get chosen. The next week the clan is usally used more so it comes back to the list.
