From Monday, June 20th, taking into account the views you expressed through your voting over the past few months, the staff list of permanent ELO bans will be changed to better correspond to the 14 life points and no semi-evolved characters format: Wanda and Charlie will no longer be bannedYayoi, Sigma Gil, Kerry and Uranus will be banned.Players’ weekly votes will allow you to influence the list of banned characters. So Don’t forget to vote every week!Happy gaming to you all!
Completely asinine with these elo bans. First with yayoi, how are Pussycats even going to compete? She was not overpowered, she was Pussycats only solid card. Sigma, ummm, she was never allowed in the new ELO format so why should she even be banned if we never got to use her. Gil I will give you, it wasn't the card being overpowered, it is just that he is too good if a bluff card. Kerry? She is not a card to ban. The reason she got elo banned by players so much is because the more experienced players get annoyed when the newer players create a Rescue deck that wipes the floor with them. Uranus I can go either way. Sakrohm needs Uranus because Na Boh

I am neutral in this ban
Wanda and Charlie unbanned with cost of yayoi is ok
Pussycats can use Wanda to annoy those GHEIST and Roots users
unbanning Charlie is a good move, it is not necessary to ban her if you ban the usage of semi evolved card in ELO
actually, yayoi is the strongest Pussycats in my book
I think the only reason staff ban her is to balance Pussycats (with Wanda and Charlie unbanned, they could use many different combination to annoy people)
many people said why yayoi is not banned? she is jackie with one less power. now your prayer is answered
sigma.. I know sigma going to be banned right after she is released
Gil, a very strong early round cards, his gives pretty big threats, even in T2! he does deserve a ban
Kerry.. I can see the reason why Kerry, because he is like edd but even more dangerous, with edd, I know they are going to use few pillz, but we Kerry, I'm not certain, she is a good mind game card. however, I'm not waiting for Kerry, I'm waiting for Sledg to be banned
Uranus, she is one of the strongest DR in UR, however, people rarely can use her since UR staff / players always ban her, so it makes no big differences (the only impact is to DT, which I think it is not worth to get -2 points from using her in DT)
Wanda wasnt OP to beginn with since ELO got a change to only allow fully developed characters.
Charlie as well since the reason mentioned above.
I don't get Yayoi's bann however, since she was basicly the Bryan/ Kati/ Vito version for her clan
Sigma and Uranus where just too good for only beeing 3 Stars/ at what they did, and yeah i totaly agree on Sigma's brokeness.
I never considered Gil and/ or Kerry broken either... sure Gil was great at mindgames as was Kerry, but unless you played no viable counter to that in form of SoA/SoB/DR/simply higher Pow, they never where too much of an thread to me
So if i could have a word on the Decisions I'd have Ghumbo, Greem, Elvira, Askai, Lehane and (even thou i play All Stars) Robb Cr banned in addition to Sigma and Uranus, instead of the ones mentioned by the Staff... but that's just me i guess
Happy about Wanda being back in ELO, Charlie is nice to have back as well. Sigma has been temp banned for ages anyway, Gil is overpowered and needed to go, Yayoi was a tad overpowered but I can see why she'd get banned and Uranus well Uranus was a fantastic card in any deck even a non-Sakrohm one, well overpowered and deserved to go.
Kerry however wasn't that over powered, if you're gonna ban a Rescue why not ban one that deserves it like Sledg and honestly if UR was handing out bans I don't understand how Ghumbo, Toro and Robb Cr managed to slip under the radar
