I haven't played ELO much to be honest, but was planning to sooner or later. However, I log in today to find this message at the front page:

"This month will also see the launch of some new experiments in ELO. During the weeks to come it will no longer be possible to play “semi-evolved” characters in this mode. In addition to this, the starting life points in the ELO room will be set at 15.
If these changes prove to be successful, they can become a permanent feature."

Wow. Isn't this like a MAJOR change? How come nobody is discussing it? Or is this a pre-April's fool's joke and I'm not aware of it?

The 2.5 minute per turn time limit in ELO seems exceedingly long to me.

Does anyone know either why it is so long or whether or not the staff has ever discussed changing its length?

If you look at this weeks banned cards you'll see a lot of GHEIST and Roots cards banned. This seems to repeat very often. Is it that "Stop Ability" bonus is too good?

Hey, I was wondering how everyone else broke up their 25 stars among eight cards. I am fond of 5*,4,4,3,3,2,2,2, but some times I ditch the 5 star altogether and use 4*,4,4,3,3,3,2,2. I'm not sure on this, but do you get more points, if you use a lower star deck? Or is that just if your opponant is a higher level? Anyhow, just curious. Happy Rivaling to you all.

Yes I am crazy. And yes I am quite skilled with Mono.

But is anyone else doing Mono, since I see Skeelz very rarely lately.

I know that the elo bans change weekly, but am I the only one who has noticed that the Roots seem to get overbanned? Currently theres only 2 5* Cards available for elo, and only a handful of 4*. GHEIST is just as powerful, with not nearly as many bans. The Nightmare and Piranas are both very powerful elo clans as well, and the Roots still have many more bans on them. Guess I'll stick to non elo rooms from now on

We all have our different plays, be it no pilling for 2 rounds, or pilling 3 every round, all so we can beat each other.

Mine? Since I run Skeelz/Vortex I find myself pilling every round except when I know it's useless. You'll be surprised how often people fall for the C Wing 2 pill trick, so I often take down they're big-semi beatsticks. I sometimes don't even use Chiara's ability!

I have all of the good GHEIST cards except for UL52 the brain jar guy. I have a few Nightmare cards and 7800 clintz. I'd like to build a decent ELO deck but man I get stomped. I've checked out the presets but the only ones I found for ELO have a bunch of banned cards like Leviathon and the like. What Nightmare cards should I pick up to build a good dual deck? How can I not suck at ELO?

I'm sure this has been asked before what what is the exact rule for ELO ratings being reduced?

What are the time intervals for rating penalties to be assessed?

The reason I asked is because I hit 1300 ELO exactly at about 8:15PM Eastern Time. I want to know if I need a buffer battle or if my score will be retained.

Sorry for my poor English:
I was below 1000 in ELO ranking yesterday. Then I played several games, winning most of them end advanced to 1024. But I have a problem - I do not advance anymore despite I win more and more battles.
I do not cheat and I did not (I do not even know if it's possible to cheat somehow). Just play with randomly connected oponents. So it's not any kind of ban or something like that, I guess.
What's going on? Why isn's my ELO ranking changable anymore?
