Having a hard time understanding why Marco is banned, while Copper is not.
They are both very similar.
Both rely on their ability to get them 9 power. SoA drops them both to a useless power of 4 or 5
Copper has +1 damage over Marco
Marco has +4 attack over Copper
To me that seems like they are of equal power, yet one is perma banned, and the other is not even touched. This make no sense to me.
At the time Marco was Perma banned, Rescue was the top of Elo. By a long shot. The were near unstoppable.
From what I've seen/remember, Sentinels haven't really been as devastating of a force as Rescue had been.
Try looking at the rest of the clan. Sentinel outright suck while rescue actually have good cards. Or one could say that the Sentinel are only good when they have Copper. Rescue, on the other hand, can stand without Marco Cr/Alec Cr.
I understand you and until a certain point I agree you.
But maybe the reason is that Copper gets pretty more weak against SoAs.
You see, against a SoA, wasting just 4 pillz (3 + the reserve one), Copper has an attack of 24, and Marco 32. Say 7 pillz and Copper has and attack of 36 and Marco, 47. 8 points of difference in the first case, 11 in the second. Thats something to take into consideration.
Marco is a Rescue. Simple as that.
agree, 4p+8atk is far easier than 5p+12atk to deal with, and 1 more damage does not pay for that.
Sentinel without Copper? Pfffft...
Rescue without Marco? They've got other amazing 5* nearly as devastating.
The Sentinel NEED Copper. The Rescue were simply balanced when hit by the banhammer.
