After a period of relative calm, signaled by the arrival in town of a clan determined to protect the local residents, the war has kicked off again with renewed vigor and this week there are at least five different clans getting their hands dirty. The Bangers, who welcome B-Ball and Blaaster to their ranks, are making the most noise, but the Sentinel with Rick, the Junkz with Onik, the GHEIST with Platinum and the Montana with Edd haven't had their last word either.
All these characters are available from the shop’s Action, Cool Attitude, Danger and New Blood packs.

Desperate times, call for desperate measures. Since their arrival in Clint City, the Rescue Clan have saved hundreds of lives, but the violence is on the increase and the clans are as hostile as ever. To tackle this social blight, Kerry, who’s determined to come to the Rescue of the city’s residents, rallies round and arrives in Clint City with her three new recruits: Mark the womanizing doctor, the bounding Lobo and the greedy but extremely warm-hearted Ghoub.

Candy Jack’s sweets are going down a storm with the city’s children and just like Timmy, those who have fallen under the spell of this demonic candy are queuing up to join the Nightmare clan.

Due to an error, Tessa and Swidz were put in a clan whose description doesn't correspond with that of the characters. As a result, the editor of the original comic, Soleil Productions, has asked that the cards be placed in another clan. From Thursday August 30, the two characters will leave Junkz and join Sentinel. This change will affect all existing Tessa and Swidz cards.
There are currently over one million people playing Urban Rivals! As a result, more and more of you are now taking part in the ELO and Daily Tournaments.
To increase the fun factor, we’ve decided to introduce some changes that we hope you’ll enjoy.

First, let us say we are truly sorry about the long downtime this morning that affected Urban Rivals's website.
And then sorry again for the game rooms "block" around 13h (paris time) for almost 1h30.
We have been doing a huge operation this morning regarding how the market is stored in our system.
Now, the market page and market operations are much (much) faster and it should not become a problem again until we have more than a million sales "currents" (now we are around 25k).
We plan to revamp the market pages to make navigation faster and easier in the future.
Our servers lag has been greatly reduced by this change & many "under the hood" recents optimizations, so now, we should not suffer of very high amount of online players (up to 7k based on our calculations).
Wa have also ordered many new servers to keep everything ultra-fast as we receive more and more players (we recently reached 1 million and we are at a rate of 5k new players per day).
Finally, we are working on many new features to make the game as perfect as possible.
We are working on everything that can make it better: social features, gameplay features, ui improvements...
There's a bug in the implementation of the new cards that can cause the game to freeze when they are played. We know where it is and are fixing the problem but it's best to not put any of the new Rescue clan cards in your deck until we get it sorted out. -Pumpkin
Sunday had a calmer feeling and with more UK community members turning up and quite a few new players recruited the day before buzzing around the stand we decided to hold an afternoon tournament.
We had some t-shirts, posters and signed artwork for prizes and in true Urban Rivals style everyone that took part would take home a prize. The rules were simple, 3 battles at the player’s choice of room and opponent with battle points being added together for a total score.
The competition was close but eventually a winner prevailed, look out for this guy bandidedo from London in England.
Special thanks to all Urban Rivals players that turned up and all players that took part in the tournament. Respect to the following and if we missed you, see you next year and maybe across the pond…
Kazukunn, Tipsy, Tyras, Jake990, iam666, webzex, Dibsy, yhette, matt stave, longlivemcr, seanywany and anna vee.
On a bright Friday morning in a fully laden car, we headed for the Excel Centre deep in the docklands area of London. We were an international team with a couple of French guys from the Paris office, a Canadian, an Englishman and a kind of Australian, it was a true dream team.
Excel is a sprawling conference centre sat right on the dockside with easy access via the Docklands Light Railway, or known as “DLR” to the locals.
The DLR offered views of the rising metropolis of Canary Wharf and glimpses of the newly named “O2 Arena”(formerly the Millenium Dome). This was about as much sightseeing as our French team were going to manage for the trip.
An early start on Saturday morning as we reached the stand at 0900 and watched the early crowds descend on the Expo floor, we soon knew it was going to be a busy day.
By midday the queues to get in the place had swelled and snaked around the conference centre and Saturday became a bit of a blur as we handed out flyers and watched the swarms of people.
By the end of the first day we’d met a couple of the Urban Rivals UK community and there was rumour that a T-shirt was secured as a prize, although details still remain sketchy, especially from Pumpkin.
After pounding the conference floor for 9 hours, we finally trudged off to our accommodation across the city and thought about the next day ahead.
We've been expanding the rules again. There section on abilities and bonus has been expanded to include more information and also has the round tester. This tool lets you plug in any two characters, set whether any other members of their clan are in the deck and assign an amount of pillz to each and it will tell you the outcome stats of the battle. This can tell you the winner for non random matches or each cards win ratio if random is turned on.
New Pussycats turn up in Clint City, with the arrival of Emma, the disconcerting librarian, and Elly Mae, who’s fresh from the sticks but determined to make it big in the city. Meanwhile, the Roots can now count on the wisdom of Shakra, great fakir and sword sallower, while the Junta can put some order in their ranks with the arrival of Dean, a very thorough hairdresser.
All these characters are now available in the shop’s Action, New Blood and Cool Attitude packs.
