The holidays are coming.
Wonder what you're going to do this summer? Look no further! Clint City is opening its doors and inviting you to the 'Summer of Clint City'. Two months of activities and surprises for a very, very hot summer!

After having done a round the world trip, Rass is back among the Ulu Watu Clan. They celebrated all night long and now are ready to wade in thanks to this unexpected reinforcement.
Rass is available in the New Blood and Cool Attitude packs.

We may have overdone it with Bridget's new stats. We underestimated the impact of her ability and shouldn't have included it in the options. Given the effect the changes have been making on ELO games we've decided to switch her to what was second place in the poll giving her Power 7, Damage 5 and ability of +1 life per turn. Apologies to all of the players who voted for the original update.
The change is effective immediately.

We're launching three new features today:

New Deck UI - There are new controls on "My Deck" that make Deck maintenance easier and more intuitive.
Messaging - You can now receive messages from people on your friends list even if you have refused private messages globally.
New Game Client - The new version of the client allows you to challenge and message other players with just one click. You can also play Urban Rivals in a popup. On the game page choose to play it in normal mode or in a small medium or large popup. Gameplay is the same, it just gives you more options and is very handy for people with small screens. If you have a popup blocker on your browser you may have to set www.urban-rivals.com in the list of allowed sites.

From now on when you play in ELO mode you will only be allowed to challenge players whose score is within -50 and +150 points of your own. This is intended to prevent players from refusing to fight others of lower level and could be adjusted in the future if they are too restrictive. Also, in the Lost Warehouse you will only get one battle point and one clintz for each match regardless of victory or defeat. To compensate your characters will receive 50% more experience (XP is calculated as if the weaker character had beat the stronger, multiplied by three and divided equally between the cards). You'll continue to receive battle points when your characters level up.

Juggling, fire, no arms or legs and a long beard? It sounds like a terrible combination unless you're talking about the newest Freaks to hit Clint City. Discover Miss Ming the telekinetic woman without arms and legs, Nanastasia, the incredible bearded woman, Zoltan the impossible juggler and Maciej the legendary fire breather. Being weird just makes them more determined to see their enemies bite the dust. With fighters like these can the Freaks really lose? All these characters are available in Cool Attitude and New Blood packs in the shop.

The staff is aware of all the bugs that started to occur (+1 clintz, +1 point issues, ELO points issues, and other bigger or smaller issues) and works to fix them.

the players are asked to remain calm and understand these are temporary issues that will be fixed as soon as possible.

the bugs are related to the recent relocation of the servers to a new bigger hosting facility that will enable the site to handle 4000 simultaneous players.

In order to add more fair play (and so.. interrestigness) to the ELO mode, we have read the message boards and an idea seems very interresting: limit the ability to challenge another ELO player based on both ELO values.
We don't want to penalize refusals in general, because we think it's too much uncomfortable for the honest players.

Here come the proposal: an ELO player can only challenge a player whose ELO value is between -50 and +150 of his own.

Example:
A 1000 player can only challenge someone 950 to 1150.
A 1100 player can only challenge someone 1050 to 1250.
A 1200 player can only challenge someone 1150 to 1350.
A 1300 player can only challenge someone 1250 to 1450.
A 1400 player can only challenge someone 1350 to 1550 (if any at THAT level one day).

Thus, a courageous lower than you, player can challenge you but a higher elo player cannot "choose" his opponents in the lowers players for easy wins. It would also limit some kind of cheat (arranged games).

Let us know what you think of it. If you are OK, we'll add it quickly.

The Freaks clan is growing and can now rely on Splata, the blood thirsty giant and his mate Guener an insensitive brute. The Fang Pi Clang is also ready to fight with Kerozinn the animal woman and the mysterious but dreadful Seldnor. All these characters are available right now in the New Blood, Cool Attitude and Action packs from the shop.

We are aware of the annoying slowliness of the site/game during the 18h tournaments.
We are truly sorry for the inconvenience, unfortunatly, we don't have any space left in our current hosting center to add more servers.
A migration to a more roomy hosting cernter is already planned for June 1st, we will then quickly setup 6 more servers (that will bring us to a total of 12 servers), and then we'll keep adding servers as needed to accomodate the success of the game.

Once again, we are truly sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello dear UK players,

It seems that the UK txt-msg number to get credits at the shop has been quite unreliable.
So, after talking to Allopass, we changed the number and the price (from 2 GBP to 1.5 GBP).
Hopefully, it will be 100% reliable now.
As usual, if you have any problem to get your credits at the shop, feel free to contact us using customer support (last tab at the top of any page).

They've arrived in Clint City and believe it or not, they aren't here to have fun... Please welcome the Freaks circus, featuring Boris the schizophrenic ringmaster, Graziella the sexy assistant and lover of Vassili the jealous knife thrower, and of course the siamese twin sisters Dacha Macha who can no longer stand to be called monsters. All these characters are available in Cool Attitude and New Blood packs in the shop.

Hello,

From now on:
The the XP is calculated as if the lower level character has beat the higher level character, then the sum of the XP won is multiply by 2, and split between both players in equals shares. Level up bonuses are actives but there are no battles points for each round and no KO bonus.

This should help you levelup your cards quickly, while reducing the problem of "bad players"
