Caelus has to be the surprise of this week, coming back after only such a short time period of being banned. This week will be a repeat of the week when All Stars and Skeelz split decks dominated.
Banned this week are: Hugo, Shakra, Ghumbo, Sylth, and Eklore (WTF?).
Morphun's vote was undecided at time of this posting.
That means you can play Cealus, Oshitsune, Marina, Toro, Striker.
What's interesting this time is that Caelus is out on the prowl at the same time Copper is. That most certainly was not the case last time. I know I'll be looking into Skeelz/Sentinels combo decks.
I'm thinking the Eklore ban has to do with Vortex or Piranas finally realizing you can get a pretty big pillz advantage using Eklore.
All Stars and Rescue are all in this week, so that's an interesting situation for sure. Last time All Stars kept Caelus in check for the most part. This time who knows.
They should not have banned Caelus as Skeelz is quite a weak clan right now.. But I can see some ppl using that as a filler so probably a ban was needed.
So unfair that Striker and Marina are playable, it's just lame. All Stars will dominate once again! this sucks. and how the hell caelus managed not to get banned? by the way, wich are the rest 2 characters being banned?
Where is copper? I didn't see him on the ELO format elections... and I look like 3 times to make sure copper wasn't around but I didn't find him
@LU - Endracer, no one has played copper enough for him to show up on the ban list. It only shows the X most popular cards and the cards that were banned last weak or something. I think him and Sentinel are just not good enough for many people to play right now, since they have added Gertjan to make mono Roots more popular.
Is it just me or for the last few weeks has Roots + Eklore been really popular. I wonder if that isn't why Eklor has been banned.
I am kinda glad the All Stars are out to keep ELO from being 80% Skeelz for the week. I find All Stars are Somewhat easier than Caelus.
Why are only 5 banned this week? Also anyone feel that Ghumbo isn't all that great of a card, honestly I can't remember when I had a problem with him.
