The list of ELO banned characters has been updated.See below for an overview of the changes made.
The following cards have been permanently added to the list of characters banned in ELO:
- Spyke (Berzerk)
- Lehane (Sentinel)
- Draheera (GHEIST)
- Lea (Rescue)
- Elvira (Rescue)
The following cards have been permanently removed from the list of characters banned in ELO:
- Kerry (Rescue)
- Sledg (Rescue)
I can understand Draheera ban on ELO. it's 4 stars and becomes similar like Jackie Cr in mono desks.
Spyke is very strong but I see a person playing with Berzerk in ELO very rarely. And by banning Spyke, I'm sure that I won't see anyone.
Lehane ban is meaningless. Now Sentinel don't have good 2* except Tobbie and they will have trouble o create space for their 5* in ELO deck. It'll hurt Sentinel too much in ELO.
Rescue clan is a bug for this game with their extraordinary bonus in ELO. Montana is also have similar bonus, but they have to spend 2 pillz to go above their min attack 8. Rescue don't need it, 1 pillz is enough to force your opp to spend 4 pillz to take the round.
I'm pretty sure that the game prodcures would want to remove this clan, if they would have a chance. Lea is banned now and they will also have trouble to create space like Sentinel. They're already very strong, so I don't think that they will have trouble.
Lol I know rite, why is Arno even banned at this point? Jeena is the real problem packing a 5/5 with -4 min 2.
The other Beef I have is that rowdy and striker have served there time. I've just played 9 games of elo and 7 of them were Rescue! Simply outrageous. I wanted to be surprised by this list, but am simply not.
Caelus Cr, rowdy, Arno, striker, Wee Lee, and yayoi need to come off the list. It would shake up the meta, and letting people use clans that have been shut down otherwise. Really now, when's the last time you saw a mono Ulu water deck? It's been ages for me.
Hope they do a second version of the list, and rethink this a little.
