It seems you needed some more explanations about new changes in ELO. We will do our best to explain those changes here.
We want to use the ELO bans not only to make this mode more balanced but also to make it funnier. Therefore we will ban several characters in addition to the ones which are already in the staff list.
The characters in this additional list won’t be in the staff banned characters list. Which means that it won’t be penalizing in Daily Tournaments.
We are making these changes in order to make the ELO mode funnier et not letting it strategically freeze. Therefore this list of characters may regularly change. We try hard not to make too big changes at a time so you can easily follow what’s happening.
One more thing :
A new system will be released during August to see how the ELO mode will improve. In September, according to the results we will decide on the definitive changes which will be necessary.
Here list of the characters which will be banned in ELO from next Monday (08/02):
(You’ll also find the ELO staff banned characters)
Staff banned (with DT penalties):
Zatman, Ratanah, Wee Lee, Jackie, Lyse Teria Cr, Vickie Cr, Kiki Cr, General Cr, DJ Korr Cr, Tanaereva, Guru Cr, GraksmxxT, Lamar Cr, Alec Cr, Marco, Kolos, Hawk
New list bans (no DT penalty):
I am really really surprised at the number of nightmares banned= ONLY ONE? nightmares deserve more bans.
also really curious about that Nanook decision...yes she might be a wall but only has 4 damages this will be a huge blow to Ulu Watu who was already weak
Hmm I don't agree with every card on the list but I will be very happy that all leaders are banned
Dr Ido said in the other thread that there were two different lists for the new cards banned.
Will we be told which card is in which list?
Trippie: look above into 1st Euzebe post. It show us both lists.
Hmm... To make the mode funnier? Please tell me that was a typo.
Well since i asked for an all Leader bann on ELo i cannot complain about it , so i wont , i thank you
i was just wondering if there were going to be DT penalty points and you cleared that up also thanks for that also
Looks really nice, i have the right impression now and can totally back the plan on the ELo changes
with one mention on the side , the staff's words send ripples through the market this week
i would like to stress that even though these cards are virtual , the emotional connections
made to it are real , and also the clints value though purely digital is of great importance to
small players big players traders and everyone basically and even though apparently I DO NOT OWN
these digital cards , i would like to see more consciousness which guards the markets
from being so thoroughly hit by annoucements made here
Awesome, thanks guys! New system, exciting!
I'm sure she mean "more fun" -Argos-.
I think you should have a list of 25 to 30 banned characters, and every week (start of Elo tournament) you ban 5 or 10 more, while unbanning the same amount, but only temprary. Try to make it a 25% draft, so that no one character is banned a whole month.
