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!
Piranas already have both SOB and the best pill manipulators ever released going for them. They didn't Ulrich, one of the top DR characters released, going for them as well.
Same with Bonnie Ld. Piranas have enough advantages without needing a top tier defeat 2*.
Of course, I never got to play with her much, she was nearly always banned anyway.
It is delicious that the staff would ban her immediately after rereleasing her last month.
I support most of these bans, but Ulrich? With Bonnie gone (and rightfully so) this leaves Piranas with not a single viable defeat or DR. Since the clan was only ever half-deckable with Bonnie, it would now be relegated to mono only... but without a single DR, no defensive SoA, and no playable defeat, Piranas seems totally crippled now. If not totally unplayable in ELO, it's close. If Piranas gets a decent defeat card (+ or - Life or something) soon, this will probably all work out.
