Why cant you use Rescue in elo?
the bans do not get determined based on equal shares of banning for each clan. they get determined based on what people think is a tad too powerful and would rather not face. Shakra is seen as too powerful by some, Sledg also the case, and the Striker + Marina combo is seen as too strong.
people vote... the results lead to the banning
Because almost no one uses Freaks, Fang Pi, Pussycats.
Nightmare finally caught a Lucky break.
Sylth and Toro will be gone soon again.
Bangers dont have any super cards like Tanaereva and Wee Lee.
And most Piranas have possible replacements over their staples that are ban worthy.
Other than that, Every clan has at least 1 banned card.
The bans are there to balance the game. All Stars have three banned cards, because if you look at it, no one would like to play against the Striker-Marina combo. Imagine Lamar Cr to add to that.
Uppers only have two, but those two are among the most feared (Jackie and Zatman).
Rescue is VERY Elo playable, especially on weeks where Caelus is unbanned, and the +12 attack gives you quite a boost against him.
@Chronically: uhm... i think you saying NO ONE would want to fight against that combo is not very accurate, more like most.
the Rescue ban hurts a bit, but there are other 5* to use, or even 4*, there are more than enough of those for you to want to make one without a 5*( tho it's not as good as one with sledg, it's not half-bad)
