Changes to the ELO mode and new banned characters.
Euzebe - Titan English - Friday 28/01/2011, 14:47

As of January 31st 2011, Copper, Bridget, Rolph, Rowdy, Lou, Shann, Emeth and Oshitsune will join the list of characters permanently banned by the staff in the ELO mode.
This month will also see the launch of some new experiments in ELO. During the weeks to come it will no longer be possible to play “semi-evolved” characters in this mode. In addition to this, the starting life points in the ELO room will be set at 15.
If these changes prove to be successful, they can become a permanent feature.

You’ve been asking for a more strategic ELO mode with a less decisive chance factor (on cards draw and pillz).
Semi-evo cards appeared to be a big advantage for those who can afford them. We’ve hesitated quite a while on banning them because we didn’t want to deprive you of using some interesting and balanced semi-evo characters but there are just a few of them compared to all those which can skew the game. From now you’ll have to fully evolve your characters if you want to use them in ELO.
Regarding the life points rise, it will prevent the easy two-shots and then reduce the domination of high damage characters. They are still important in this mode but they won’t be able to win the match too easily now.
It’s still a test. Don’t hesitate to tell us your feelings about it on the forum so as to make the ELO mode satisfactory for everyone.

Oh noes!! Not my Copper and Emeth!! =( O' Well, I saw this coming really. Not once have they been off the ban list since I've started playing.

No more semi-evolved characters means no more Vermyn N at 3 stars =/. I was just about to buy one at that level as well.

I don't know why, but I have a feeling that poison/DR/Attack Manip decks are slightly more effective with this change.

If Lou is perma banned, why are XU52 and Fuzz not banned either? They are the exact same cards.

Instant reaction to life point raise is how over powered poison will be... Sigma's life sep just went to 11, Freaks are at 12... That's kind of really unbalanced even if they draw a single life sep or dr...

I like the new semievo ban though! Wish you'd permaban Gil though lol...

I don't know why people are saying Roots are bad in elo now. I guess I'll take advantage of the 15 life and use cards like Tshern and Ojibway.

@Lou: Ojibway.
@Bridget: Don't want poison to overpower ELO too much now do we?

Use Ariwaka

I fully support all of the ELO bans and changes to ELO. I mean two hit KO's are just boring and don't require that much skill.
I could go on forever but I'm not going to.
I can see all of the reasons for these changes and I would encourage you to wake up and do so also.

Thanks Administrators.
