Our fellow Memento Mori is joining the mothership.
Starting mid-january, he'll be in Paris with us as a full time developper on Urban Rivals
We are very glad to have him in the team as we were really impressed by what he done for his personal site (UR Cards Database).
Currently for whatever reason, ELO decks are allowing banned characters. If you are caught using this exploit, your ELO score will be reduced to 1000, and you will be blacklisted. Just because the system is allowing you to use banned characters doesn't mean it's not a form of cheating. You know these characters are banned.
If you see anyone exploting this bug, report it to me or another Admin. We will take care of it. Include screenshots if you can and report usernames.
We are aware and working now to fix it.

Drastic times call for drastic measures! To confront the threat to the city posed by the Nightmare’s gigantic monster, Kolos, the Rescue Clan are in full recruitment mode and have welcomed to their ranks Denise, an expert in bacteriological and chemical threats, and Tanner, a specialist in large animals. While the Sentinels can now rely on John, the super cop who does things his own special way.
All these characters are now available from the Shop’s New Blood, Action Packs.`
We've been having trouble lately with players selling powerful decks to low level accounts and going crazy in the 5-12 rooms. We've got some adjustments in the works to help prevent this but until we ship them we've changed the fight type 1 & 2 rooms so that they are all level 7+. Not a perfect solution but it will allow for a more balanced group pf players where the strong will have less chance to prey on the new players with no real opposition.
We've rolled out some big changes this afternoon including a new, more readable design for the cards and a new version of the Flash game client with several enhancements and bug fixes:
-A new Quick Challenge that's much faster and more informative than before. You can enter quick challenge mode whenever you like by clicking the button (crossed swords) at the bottom of the room list.
-Better motion of projectiles during the battles
-An animation for Sureshot (when your attack is at least double that of your opponent)
-Shortcuts for common actions (tooltips available when you mouse over the buttons)
-Nicknames of other players are more visible
-Flags are visible during battles
-New card appearance is carried over to the battles
-And many more little tweaks for you to discover.
-Bug that caused all cards to pile up at the left of the screen
-Some text in popups was cut off
-Improved memory / resource management by the game
I hope everyone likes the new changes. We're still working on making the game even better with future releases.
If you have any trouble with the new client please contact support.

(Translation of the news posted by admin Fraggle on the french forum)
The staff has been thinking a lot about new ways to refresh the ELO mode and they have decided to ban 2 cards from ELO: Lamar from the All Stars (an almost 8/8 with a very unbalanced record of wins/losses) and Marco from the Rescue (a 9/7 with +12 attack in monoclan decks, who also has a very unbalanced wins/losses record). Some other cards from other clans could be banned but the staff prefers to wait until the introduction of new cards of similar level but more balanced.
The staff is also going to rethink a little the algorithm that determines the top 3 clans by trying to take into account the way each clan is played (mono-clan, offensive, defensive etc.)
There is also another change about the distribution of rares in ELO. The 30 rares will be given to players with an ELO score superior to 1150 at the end of the tournament instead of 1000 as it is right now.
All the changes will be in place starting Monday the 7th January and a news will be placed on the home page of the site.
On my right, we have Hammer, All Stars’ champion and legend in the ring, trained by Mario. And on my left, let me present Rolph, the GHEIST’S genetically modified, monstrous boxer. And finally in the centre, and Montana to his very core, is Prince Jr, the city's most dishonest and corrupt fight organizer. Things are certainly hotting up in here!

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.

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. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, the Freaks are wheeling out two new fascinating performers, Esmeralda and Erpeto, while the Uppers welcome the famous reality TV producer, Colin, into their ranks.

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.
