From now on, you can play Deathmatch mode in Standard format; the rules and wins will be the same as in Extended format (to find out more about Standard format, click here). And, given the low number of players in Extended 25, we have decided to remove it from the list of formats available in Deathmatch mode. Finally, we have also decided to ban Ambre in Standard format and this will apply to all the different game modes. Happy gaming to you all!
Next step should be making "Standard elo" to completely remove all uses of 2* and 3* cards... but oh well goodbye strategy games of 4 rounds, welcome 1 or 2 hits matchs where all depends on who starts the 1st round..
Ambre is banned in Standard (until now, all Leaders were part of Standard). This would apply to tournaments and deathmatch. Extended in both would still allow Ambre.
I too will miss a 25* room where I could still use Jackie and Zatman, or Striker and Lamar.

My Kami-sama! They actually listened to my complaint about Ambre? Wow, they do listen!
Just change ELO to 40* and then UR can forget about releasing 2-3*'s at all. Whole game is just a T2 fest now anyways. Course you could always take a T1 deck to fight those 19-20* hands you come up against every fight if you like that sort of thing.
Outside of ELO, there is no Type 1 format? Rediculous! All ELO banned 2 and 3 stars are obsolete now. Sure, I could play them against 5* decks for a challenge but, that would be more frustrating than anything else.
*shakes head at UR staff*
#17 speaks the truth... Please, UR, make something about it, you're eliminating T1 sistematicly. And now ELO banned cool low stars are basicly extinct from competition... And I kinda liked T1, I'm sure quite many players did.
@kazjun: lol... before the rejig of points i used to do that... and still place top 50 DT... it's all about what you're 9* hand is... especially when it is 18 stars and not even 25 for whole deck
If any of the UR staff read the comments on these pages then I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the recent changes the game has been seeing.
First off this is not an non-constructive bashing comment such as "booo no more changes!!" - it is clear now that UR will make the changes to improve their game regardless of what players think but this is a sincere request, that I and, from what I'm seeing, a lot of players would really really like a 25* format reinstated. For me the tactical significance of fine tuning a 25* deck and experimenting with clever strategies and ploys in a controlled format is much more fun than simply loading up a deck with Leader, and beast 5* & 4*.
so....Please please please, can we have a format that does require a 25* deck. This is not a ridiculous request and I think it would keep me and a lot of the gamers happy just to have that option. thank you.
