Y would Elvira be Banned? Is it because she is a 3 star with SOA???
If so. Then Y isn't Onyx???smiley

Elvira herself isn't too powerful, but in the new ELO mode, Rescue has retained its role as a powerful ELO force. As one of the most popular Rescue cards, Elvira is a good card choice to ban if someone wants to weaken the clan. But remember, Elvira is only a player banned card so Elvira will likely be back in ELO next week. smiley

Because Elvira is a staple of the rescue clan. Her 6 power doesn't matter simply because of the rescue bonus. smiley

She was banned the week of rescue dominance. Over half the people played rescue with the rest settling for la junta and piranas.

So because shes the only Soa besides cliff it makes her alot more harmfull towards others in ELO???

Elvira is the best Rescue elo-allowed card, alongside Kerry. Rescue aren't as strong in ELO when Piranas/Nightmare/Gheist are on the loose, but when they had their staples banned, Rescue got a lot more powerful.

So when the bans come out...
its usually because of certain cards that r dominating from each clan

After the UR Powers That Be decided to make almost every staple ELO card banned, Rescue went wild, almost like Girls Gone Wild, except, thankfully for cards like Betty and Pam, they all kept their shirts on. But in ELO, Rescue was everywhere.

The following week, Elvira, Lea, Kerry all were banned BY THE PLAYERS, and Sledj has been put on semi-perma-ban by the UR Powers That Be, partially crippling the clan.

Look at Mona, she's been banned, because she's a huge part of Montana success in ELO. Take her out of the equation and Montana come back down to Earth.

I felt crippled without Elvira & Lea at first, but lately Ive had a lot of success with this deck. Last week I hit 1200, my goal this week is 1300

Your comparison only provided further evidence as to why elvira is banned. First off, rescue is a powerful clan; capable of both overpowering and over maneuvering an opponent. Rescue has everything: drs, reducers, SOB, SOA... etc they also have one of the best bonuses in the game. This brings us back to the fact that elvira is simply better then other alternatives in weaker clans. She is better then Otakool, Luis, Tank, Onyx... which are all in weaker clans in ELO mode. So not only does she keep the game imbalanced, but she is blatantly giving rescue too many options while they already have the advantage of being played in mono (always getting a bonus) and having one of the most powerful bonuses in the game. I am actually pleased that she is now banned making rescue users at least have to play around one weakness.
