Attack manipulators = low attack
Damage manipulators = low damage
Power Manipulators = Low power
SOB clans = good abilities bad power and damage
SOA Clans = good abilities, handicapped by SOB clans.
Skeelz = Good against SOA clans, average against rest.
Vortex = Pill recovery means more pills used to carry out more attacks, basically attack manipulation combined with good power. Bad damage and screwed against SOB.
They all trump each other in a sense, forcing the decisions the players make, and how good you can read your opponent to be the soul way to win. some clans are better then others in certain aspects, but in the end anyone can take the W in elo, thats the best part.
