Most of you must remember that temporary bans have been tested out in August. We are satisfied with the results of this experience, on the whole. Therefore, we’ve decided to definitively implement this system of temporary bans.
The goal of these bans is to offer a more balanced and constantly evolving game environment in ELO. These bans are there to encourage you to use lesser played clans or/and to try left out characters.
The list of weekly temporary banned characters will always be known the week ahead. We created a summing-up page where you will find the ELO bans and the information you need to build your deck. You can reach this page from the ELO ranking page.
Regarding DT penalties, the rule is very simple: only permanently banned characters lead to penalties in DT. It means that neither characters banned because of your votes not temporary ELO bans will penalizing in DT.
These changes will come into effect as of Monday, September 27th.
Following your questions and discussions, we took the following decisions:
- The Divinity rank will be (rapidly) corrected to be : all normal characters + all Cr's, like now.
- An extra rank (name to come) will be added soon : when you own ALL characters (legendary's included).
- If you began a mission before it expires, and complete it afterwards, you will gain the mission reward (CAUTION, it means for example : if you begin the last mission for Dudley on 12/19, you will still have the right to finish it after the 12/20 to get dudley ; HOWEVER, if you begin the next to last mission on 12/19 but complete it after it expires on 20/12, you will not unlock the final mission because it will not be available anymore).
- The completed missions will stay in your counter and mission list.
Here you are, hoping it lights up the dark points.
Offended by a rude remark made about her at the last clan meeting, Jackie has decided to leave the town for good to find a place that’s more open to diversity (without saying exactly where). Unable to establish whether there’s a link between the two decisions, Noodile announced just a few hours later that she too was leaving Clint City.
From Monday, 6 December 2010, Jackie and Noodile will no longer be available in the shop’s packs. However, players who already own them can continue to use them as normal. Sales of the two characters on the market will be blocked until the morning of Wednesday, 1 December.
They’ve been lying low now for several months but it couldn’t last. The Uppers throw themselves back in the fray and they’re angrier than ever. To lead the revolt, they can now rely on Herman, who’s what you'd call heavy reinforcements! Meanwhile, the Bangers welcome Garrik, the city’s speediest delivery man, the Nightmare wheel out Arawaka and La Junta take on Isatis. Get these characters in the shop’s packs.
Although rumors had been flying around for the past few weeks, the news still took many of the city’s inhabitants by surprise. Smokey and Amiral Py have just announced they’re leaving Clint City to set off on a voyage around the world in a boat they did up together. From Wednesday, December 23rd 2009, these characters will no longer be available in the shop’s packs. However, players who already own them can continue to use them as normal. Sales of the two characters on the market will be blocked until the morning of Friday, December 18th.
A large number of you turned out to vote for Miss Clint City 2010 and you chose the ultra sexy All Stars representative, who finished ahead of Tula and Lucia. So, another big well done to Miss Jessie and thank you all for taking part.

For years now, he’s been roaming the city’s streets with the Ulu Watu for the glory of his clan. But today, Tanaereva has decided to get back on his board and go off surfing solo around the world. In his wake, Kreen is also making a discreet exit from the city. There's even talk of a secret mission being organized by Ongh. From Monday 6th September 2010, Tanaereva and Kreen characters will no longer be available in the Shop’s packs. However, players who already own them can continue to use them as normal. Sales of the two characters on the market will be blocked until the morning of Wednesday 1st September.
In order to make the ELO mode even more interesting, we’ve decided to add a few more characters to the list of characters banned by staff in ELO.

Here is the list of characters: Smokey Cr, Caelus, Charlie, Wanda, Shakra, Sylth, Striker, Hugo, Morphun, Eyrik, Ambre, Eklore. These bans will come into effect from September 13th.

This community needed a moderator. Bushidou_PWM will be this new mod and will also help in the English speaking team. So Don’t hesitate to contact him our new nice and full of spice mod.
- You won't become a moderator by asking. In fact it's worse than trying to divide by zero.
- There are no set criteria for the moderator position except the changing ones constantly created by my weird and sick mind.
- People are not selected because of their levels, guilds, ELO ranking or colour of their socks, it's far worse than that and I won't tell you more about it or it will wake Cthulhu up. He is always very grumpy when he wakes up and it's not really a good thing.
- Believe me or not, moderators are players who volunteer, they don't get massive super powers, they can't change water in chocolate milk nor tell you what will be next collectors. They are nice people with a big quality : they are very patient. And is some cases, it's a bigger power than changing water in chocolate milk.
If you like the Missions (and a lot of you do), you'll be pleased to know we've just added 92 new ones to the list, which means there are now more than 300 missions available! So, quick, discover these new challenges and increase your mission points. It's time to get back into the ring! To find out more about the Missions, click here. http://www.urban-rivals.com/missions/

To impose his will and take control of the city, there’s nothing like a bit of brute force. Convinced that violence is the answer, it is with great pleasure that the Vortex welcome the fearsome creature, C Beast, to their ranks. In response, the Montana turn to Tino, another sort of equally grizzly creature. Elsewhere in the city, the Piranas welcome Ector while Burdock joins forces with the Roots.
