After months of trials and taking into account your views (forums, surveys and the X-Periment ELO event), we are officially changing the list of permanent ELO bans: Arkn, Toro, Ghumbo, Bonnie Ld, Sledg, Ulrich and Arno will be banned, while Uranus in now authorized.These changes will come into effect from the week commencing December 05.Happy gaming to you all in ELO mode!
To everyone complaining about the ban of Arkn: Wendel is a 6/2 courage based card. I would take away 1 power to give him permanent SOA and +2 damages any day.
To everyone complaining about the un-banning of Uranus: Newsflash Sak are still weak to SOA , with or without her. Or if you want to splash a 5/5 3* that dies to SOA, any kind of manipulation (attack pill power etc) P: Damage, Berserk and so on please stopcomplaing about the banning of Ulrich, which is much more powerful with clan backup.
On the same page, Jeena should have been banned nor Arno.
All the other banning are more or less justified. I wonder if Piranas will have to play with sub par 2* due to Hawkins being constantly banned and Puff being Mono only. With the banning of Bonnie Ld and Ulrich they took the role of the Offensive SOB clan, going for pill manipulation and high power cards, and Nighmare being more controlish, defensive clan with life gap and DRs.
Did other cards deserve the ban Hammer? Yes. Did other cards deserved to be unbanned? Yes. Can we do something about it aside from the ELO weekly voting? Not really. Like the life changes in ELO or the new point reduction system in DTS (Low stars T2 Piranas decks are now dead BTW) we just have to suck it up and hope for better changes in the future.
What kind of half-baked idea is this? banning Arkn Ulrich, bonnie, and Arno, and unbanning Uranus while keeping Leviatonn and spyke?
How in any way, shape, fashion, or form, is Arno better than spiaghi, Artus, and all those other 2 star drs? He's not! Sure, Roots has a lot of playable drs, but Arno is not, and never has been, a ban-worthy card.
Bonnie? that's also silly. I don't even feel why i need to justify her being un-banned.
Arkn is not overpowered. His backing line was, along with toro and company, but he himself isn't. It's like voting to ban Lea because you're frustrated with Rescue. just no.
Ulrich? Really? This is the card people vote to ban when they get sick of playing mono-Piranas. It's spineless to ban him, as he's really no better than any other equivelant dr.
And with this wave of banning drs....why un-ban Uranus? With the neutering of BOTH soa clans, adding in an AMAZING card to a clan that's main weakness is soa is...ill thought out. It almost begs the question...who has a lot of influence in your decisions and loves to play sahkrohm?
Why didn't you ban spyke? Sure, there's arguments for him. Just as there's arguments for bonnie. For god's sake, at least be CONSISTENT.
As for toro, Ghumbo, and sledg...well, at least some good came of this ban/unban cycle.
