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'm actually happy that they banned Draheera. i've been seeing way too much GHEIST around, and they still have 2 good 4 stars (annibal and Methane) and Leviatonn
Spyke - No explanation necessary. Who didn't see that coming.
Lehane - Not as much to weaken Sentinal but to stop it as a splash in many decks.
Daheera - Weakens Mono GHEIST. The problem is that SOA bonus is quite strong so UR decided to nerf the entire Roots and now GHEIST in ELO.
Lea & Elvira - Gonna hurt Rescue as they are staples for Rescue but overall still gonna be used by newer players and Rescue fans
Kerry & Sledg - Can fight SOB and helps for stronger high starsin Rescue
It's actually much more balanced than one may think - sure, Kerry and Sledg are pretty cool, but so was Lea and Elvira, so advantage for Rescue via this announcement isn't that big.
Its not fair
5 characters banned
and 2 unbanned un-bann an equal amount 5 for 5 or 2 for 2
So Lea and Elvira gets banned but Kerry and Sledg gets unbanned. Rescue users in ELO, you guys exist again.
Every time I see a Rescue hand, I cringe a little inside. Sledg return was unnecessary. They already have 3 usable 5* cards and adding Sledg only aids them against the bane of Rescue, SOB.
Hmm, im surprised these bans took place right away, they usually give until the following monday
People complaining about Draheera being unfair
you ever faced Draheera XU52/Methane when youre 1400+ and know how bad it makes you feel?
Draheera shouldn't be removed
Damn, I was happy when I saw 2 Perma-Banned characters from the Rescue unbanned, then I see Elvira & Lea banned
