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.

Kolos is now no where near as scary
Ratanah should come back, shes just decent with 15 life
Uranus MUST go now, 15 life and the potential that Sakrohm have is unreal

Something is really bothering me... no... not the bans

if UR was going to change ELO to 15 life, why on earth did they release Heal X... 15 life made it even more crappier...
it is almost as if UR staff is just throwing us random stuff

Did anyone else see the Freaks prices skyrocket in a blink of an eye because of this?

Perhaps the new change on life should be made into a seperate mode called "ELO 15" or something..because making it 15 is really kinda random..plus, it ruins the potential of the new Heal abilities..

The only positive thing is that Freaks will see more use which should be interesting.

The 15 life is what kills it, the rest I can live with

Oh. Didn't read the whole post. Stopping cheap 2 hit KO's? I like it. Yet still, it will ruin the effectiveness of the Heal cards.

Banning OP cards like Emeth, Copper, Rolph, Rowdy or Shann is good.
But 15 life is ridiculous. Poison is now totally overpowered and the 2HKO choices will be replaced by choices against poison. 13 would have been perfect.
Although it would be fun to play one week in ELO with 15 life, i really hope this is just a crazy idea that will go away asap.
