Yep. Their votes, they can use them as they see fit. Treeman's votes are probably wasted, but Gertjan might end up higher.
Basically, it's too early in the voting to say anything about what cards are even in danger of a ban.
Gertjan is good in mono roots.
If a player had trouble with roots last week they will try and ban them this week. Killing the low *s can cause them trouble.
Ban the clan! Ban the clan!
BAN THE CLAN! BAN THE CLAN!
Ogoun kyu is way too OP
Oh no 2 Roots are fairly close to the top. Grab the torches and pitchforks because obviously everybody hates Roots even tho' Sakhrom, Bangers, Montana and Gheist tend to be banned just as often these days!
Gertjan is an understandable ban.
Mono-resuce users should be very familiar with elvira and the havoc she caused in elo. Gertjan is a stronger extension of that card and makes roots a very playable option.
Treeman,now i know i haven't checked elo as much recently,but i don't know what charts you're looking at,but treeman isnt on anyone's radar...
