Some change in ELO mode Euzebe - Legend - Friday 04/06/2010, 15:19
We are aware that the ELO mode is not particularly satisfying as it is right now. Until now we had the will to staff ban as little cards as possible, only those which seemed really too strong according to us. We used to count on your votes to bring more diversity in ELO decks.
We will change this system.
We Don’t know how it will evolve yet but we worked quite a lot on it already. It will take some time before these changes will be released (not too much, you won’t wait for years Don’t worry ). The only thing I can tell you is that we’ll do what we think is consistent and efficient to give more diversity and fun to this mode.
There won’t be big changes in the game mode. Changes will be more on the cards ban system. We will handle staff bans with a complete different policy. Forget about «the strongest cards are banned forever». But there will be more banned cards, for a shorter duration and not only the strongest cards. As I said previously, our goal is : diversity and fun.
Im quite new to ELO and its definitely not fun playing against Robb, Striker, and Marina in 90% of my matches this week.

I really don't mind there being that 1-3 decks every week because I expect to see this in any card game. This is quite common for me since i do play YGO competitively/ semi-pro(Travel across America for tournaments of high caliber) and its the same way but instead of some cards being banned every week it is more like every 6 months. So im used to this and I feel ELO is great the way it is but thats just me.
The only change can be is no more perm bans just vote on every card every week.
I think that if there is going to be changes each week as drastic as no 4* and 20* deck weeks, there should be a new mode. If you are going to unban some of the big cr they should count for more stars or for them to get a cut in the elo points they get for winning when it is in there hand.
