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.
I don't find elo boring, I don't play Nightmare, GHEIST or allstars which probably is the thing unboring me In my opinion you should add more prizes, like 100 uncommon cards, 150 commons, battle points, prize draw tickets- more prizes means more smiles on those who get them. For example make commons avaliable for 1100- elo which will allow those ppl to feel like they already achieved something and get them a belief that they can win something, which will increase their hunger for bigger elo and bigger prizes.
About the big cards banned- there are already many good cards in the clans to replace the cr's, maybe a bit worse, but it is not a big threat. After all there is a better way- boost up the weaker-non used in elo clans with some stingy cards.
I say vote every month for a clan to be banned for the 1st and third week of that month. And maybe every other month have one of the big five rotate in and then back out for only one week of that month. I mean it would not make anything OP if they are only open for use for 1 week every other month.
