Tonight we will be introducing a new version of the server, a new version of the flash client and a new handling of timeout and forfeits.
The new server is optimized to allow more players simultaneously.
As you may have noticed, the outcome has been impredictible until the last minute but in the end, supporters of the no-random
option won the poll.
Starting from now, the randomness has been removed from the Danger Zone, no matter what kind of game you wish to play (ELO,
normal, tournaments..): the character with the higher attack will always win the round.
If both characters attacks are equals, they have both 50% chances to win the round.
Next poll will be up soon!
This week, the poll is not about the ELO mode, but about the futur of the Danger Zone.
Which of the following ideas do you like most ?
1. No random factor in the Danger Zone. The character with higher attack always wins.
2. Players must bet Clintz for each fight in the Danger Zone. Winner takes all.
As you might have "observed", the unofficial "old" mode (play without using pillz) has become a way for in-the-know players to reach
the top positions otherwise unreachable using "normal" play.
Since we do not want tournaments to be owned by a few players using specifics rules to advantage them, we are going to limit the KO
bonus points during tournaments to 5 points maximum in the tournaments rooms (just like we did about the EVO points).
This new rule will be in place starting monday, 12h30 GMT tournament.
On your profil page, a new feature just appeared: The Poll.
From now on you'll be able to express your opinion on various subject related to Clint: Urban Rivals. The current poll concerns the ELO mode and the Pussycats. Would you rather ban Yayoi AND Feelyn and keep Wanda AND Baby Q or do the opposite? A difficult question, that's why we need your opinion.
You can vote as much as you want, but each vote will cost you a more Clintz than the previous one. The first vote costs only 2 Clintz, so what are you waiting for
In addition to the new look and the new theme of the main message board, we added rss feeds for themes and subjects..
You can now follow the message board more easily if you are an rss addict (and I know that at least one of you is ).

The founder of the GHEIST Clan, Sigmund GHEIST , announced today that, as his presence is not needed anymore by the Clint City branch of his global crime organisation, he will soon leave town to focus on the development of new activities. As soon as he learned this information, Copper asked Melissa to leave town as well, in order to keep an eye on Sigmund. Both characters will stop being available in packs from the shop as of Friday, November 3rd, but will still by usable normally by players who already have them. Note that thoses characters are no longer distributed on registration.
Four new characters are available! Ambrose, a quiet citizen turned into a flesh hungry zombie and Dwain, a mad scientist, join the Nightmare, while secret agent Jim infiltrate the Uppers and his colleague Beltran seeks the help of the Roots.
All these characters are avaible in the Packs from the shop!
Following the return of Kiki, we changed the way the percentage of the collection you own is calculed.
This percentage is now based only on the number of cards currently available in the packs. You don't need to have the collectors to reach 100%. But, if you have the collectors, you can go over 100% and reach 101%, 105% etc. (yes, Nintendo was an influence here).
We also add a Cr after the name of each collector (instead of the 2004 that you didn't seem to like that much)
Kiki, one of Clint City most famous fighter, is now back in town, in a brand new edition. The card has new stats and is playable in ELO mode. It doesn't replace the old card, now named Kiki 2004 (as it was released first in 2004!) that remains Collector. This new card will allow player who had no hope of getting the Collector version to add Kiki to their collections.
- You can now display dates and times on the site according to your own timezone, just set it correctly in your profile page (for example).

We are very happy to announce that one of the most awaited feature of the game is now live. You can now choose and/or change your country and flag on your profil page. Simply click on the flag next to your name and select one flag from the list.
Meet Terry, a young and promising golfer, Bhudd, a true bowling god, Flo, a jet ski addict and life long enemy of the Ulu Watu , and last but not least, Kimberley, the angry cheerleader you'd better have in your team rather than against you.
