Hello everyone,

As you know, we make modifications regularly in order to make the game better for everyone.
So, as of Monday, the daily tournaments will change:

New formats:

2 (perhaps 3) new formats will appear with the following rules: no doubles, not more than X stars, and not less than X stars.
It is much less restrictive than ELO mode, but still ensures certain balances exist between players Decks.

Addition of special rooms:

New special tournament rooms will be created for each of the new formats (not required for players of very low and high level). These rooms will be available at all times but matches will count towards tournaments only when a tournament is in progress (like the current system).

Withdrawal of the other rooms from the tournaments:

The matches in the other rooms will not count towards tournaments (even when a tournament is in progress). This is so that everyone plays under identical conditions during the tournaments.

- Lowering of level up bonus during the tournaments:

These changes are being made so that tournaments are played in a “combative” spirit and the rules of Urban are not twisted, giving an advantage too strong on certain types of “way of playing”. The bonus for leveling up a character during the tournaments will be reduced from 5 points per level at 2 points. This isn't meant as a punishment for people who played with certain styles.

Have fun!

Wow sounds very interesting, the no doubles one in particular sounds enticing to me, I'm so sick of running into decks with 3 rubies, 3 Zatman, and 2 jackies. The not more then x stars might be alright, though I find the fact that you get points based on your character's levels makes it so your best off playing lots of overly strong low levels anyway, maybe if it was based on the actual stats of your characters instead of their level then alot of the terrible cards might see more play. As for minimum stars, the only advantage I see to that is that you know you'll get decent level points for each win, I'd say its the least attractive of the 3 to me but who knows, I'd have to see it in action.

The lowered level up bonus is nice as well, at this point its so low hopefully people will stop trying to abuse leveling to get an advantage. Overal I'm very happy with this update.

Isn't this why we have the level requirement for the rooms??

Could it be that you don't like this very much because you are one of the players that like to use 4 Zatmans and 4 Jackies in your deck ?

I think this is the best change ever in this game.

Thanks for a great game moderators.
