Thank God Lehane is gone. No more Lehane - Jakson - Coby - Havok - Morgan - Tobbie - Martha - John/Flinch. Hurray!

As for the others, well, good riddance to Spyke, I don't fully understand Draheera, but Lea and Elvira being replaced with Kerry and Slegh is probably for the best.

A very interesting aspect to look at in terms of Rescue have 2 unbans and 2 bans.
With Lea and Elvira, arguably the best 2* and 3* choices for the clan, it does generate more usage of other 2* and 3* however there is no SoA and SoB that isn't conditional. This could pose a tough decision player wise when deciding to use Rescue... but it is still Rescue and the easiest clan to play.

With the unban of Kerry and Sledg Rescue will most likely see a boost in usage due to the fact that Piranas and Nightmare will have trouble playing against them however making the decks won't be as easy, especially if one of them gets banned.

While I don't use Rescue very often in elo, I think it was a good move on the staff's part.

Banning Draheera was needed but not greatly since GHEIST is already a bit weak without Rolph and Arkn but they are still useable in half decks very nicely.

Spyke being banned is a great thing for players because he was a very hard card to face without playing SoA or protection power. More votes getting Kalindra out on the weekly bans because of this. It was expected and I don't think anyone is surprised by this change.

Lehane being banned will most likely not have an effect on Sentinel's huge reign in elo since they still have many good 2* alternatives but it does cripple them a bit.

Overall, I like they changes some surprises some we all knew were coming but it should make elo a bit more interesting from now on.

Amazing, Let's ban every decent card and play with cards such as Bob Joby, Brutox, I'm sure that'll make ELO a lot more fun!

Draheera is too much for GHEIST, UR staff
She is the only card with high power of 9 in GHEIST
where 6 power is normal.
Unban her!

Spyke is ok,no problem.
The zerk is still killing other clan without him

Ok here is my take on these new changes to the elo ban list.

Firstly, Spyke is a monster 4* that almost always wins the match when he is drawn. I dunno abt the rest of you but i hate facing him so dropping a perma-ban on his butt is fine with me and im sure alot of u approve.

Secondly, Lehane is arguably the best 2* in the game with the title of queen SoB under her belt so perma-banning her is understandable in my eyes.

Next is Draheera, i have never had to put up with alot of GHEIST in elo and even when i did i never found Draheera to be overpowered so i disagree with this perma-ban.

Finally, to the highlight of my UR elo career, the unbanning of Sledg (my fav Rescue card ever) and Kerry (only real 4* worthy of a staple title) is by far the best move to ever happen to Rescue clan lately. Glosh, Benson, Suzie and Scott Ld all get bumped by Kerry now and Sledg makes sure that Rescue now has a decent chance of victory against SoB clans. Additionally, the banning of Lea and Elvira is understandable becuz Lea is decent and has the Rescue bonus to back her up, Elvira has the only unconditionally SoA for the clan and the Rescue bonus does make her a big threat.

I am an ardent Rescue player with Rescue being the first clan ive ever used and still use to date.
