La Bangers Elo Supremacy

anything I should change? It looks solid to me, going to be trying it out a lot in the coming days, but it is late and I cannot get started tonight. If you see any flaws please let me know, but I think this deck will do wonders for me with the new elo format bans. especially since everyone has had a chance to ban the op cards for next week a little more evenly than did last week.
Well thanks for your time, green faces appreciated, red faces acceptable but i prefer explanations : )

And to those who've broke their previous Elo records in the new climate, which decks did you use to do so?

I broke my Elo record of 1353e by scoring 1375e with this: Taljion's Slightly Lesser Targe

The best I'd managed with the more powerful variant - Taljion's Targe - was 1330e or so.

I'm curious to see if people have been doing similar and adapting previous favourite decks such as the above shift and managing to keep consissted with their previous bests or top them, or if they've shifted entirely to other clans.

I'm finding new Elo curious. Each week it seems more of a struggle from 1000-1200e, but then, once I'm on my way to 1330e it seems a little easier.

How about the rest of you?

After trying out a lot of different clans, I've found that I really like the Montanas and Sentinals. I'm wanting to improve the quality of my deck, so I was wondering which cards from that clan I might want to try fitting in. Right now my big hitters are Fabio and Owen, and they've done a lot of cool stuff for me.

The arrival of the Vortex has provided the greedy Uppers with an unprecedented opportunity to wipe out those clans which are deemed too poor to justify their existence in society. Seizing the opportunity, the Uppers quickly extended their hands (and pocketbooks) to the Vortex in an attempt to ally themselves with the new and powerful faction. The Vortex, realizing their need for resources and information regarding Clint City, accepted the offer and an alliance between the two clans formed. The truth of the matter, however, is that each clan plans on betraying the other once the other clans have been dealt with and Clint City is open to a quick and easy take over. Thus, Glenn commands the finest and most distinguished celebrities from the ranks of the Uppers, while Dagg and his personal bounty hunters, Deea and Neloe, lead a horde of violent C Wings into battle. The fate of Clint City has been sealed.

Hi guys, here's a quick link to my latest ELO deck. Let me know what you think!

I've tidied up my proposed solution and changed the thread title to avoid confusion. I've also changed the name of the proposed idea to avoid bickering about tiers.

Solution - Limit System.

- Mark all considered overpowered cards (Toro, Rolph, Smokey Cr, Charlie, etc...) as 'Limited'.
- Add new stipulation to Elo deck build rules:

Your Deck can only contain X Limited cards.



- Limited cards would only be the cards that are considered too powerful. So some clans would not have any Limited cards at all.

- The limited list could rotate, or it could even be placed under player vote.

- This would stop decks being made up with the obvious cards, but would allow us to still play these cards in a limited capacity.


Discuss, feedback, and so on...
The previous thread can be found here: http://www.urban-rivals.com/community/forum/?mode=viewsubject&forum_page=0&id_subject=1529651&subject_page=0

Thank you to everyone who gave feedback.

As everyone is aware, new bans have happened. And i imagine that bannings will continue. The combination of staff bans and player bans should see some changes in deck and clan options. If this continues, the importance of collecting as many of the clans as possible and being experienced in playing each clan will continue to increase.

selling and buying a new ELO deck each week becomes more of a chore if the bans are constantly rotated.
So the solution is to collect and play

Play as many different clans and clan combinations that you existing collection allows (use Survivor ELO if you want to protect your current ELO score)

There is no replacement for experience. You may understand the bonus/ability of a card or clan. You may have played against a given card/clan and are quite familiar with it. You may have read the card reviews. You may have imagined different scenarios on how the card would combo with other card. But nothing replaces the experience you will have when using that card and going through all the thought process.... if i play this first, he will counter with this, or i want to play this card but i need to make sure it avoids being matched up vs a certain opponents card... and so on.

For example, ive played vs Vortex a few times, i understand the bonus, i understand the abilities, but ive never played a votex half deck or full deck yet. As a result my understanding of Vortex and how they actually work is a bit limited. So although i can do well vs decks with Vortex. im sure i would do better if i played Vortex.

When you play the certain deck/card it allows you to have first hand experience of what specific matchups they are strong against, and what specific matchups they will struggle against. The better you are with a given deck, the better you will be at facing and beating the same deck.

And finally, once you are familiar and quite good a using the clans that are in your collection... the better prepared you will be a putting together good ELO decks regardless of what cards/clans are allowed... and you will be able to beat a lot of players who are not as prepared as you are.

Just wondering what you think is the most used clan in ELO this week.

I created a poll (as UR hasn't got this option) so you can vote once a day on what you think is the most used clan.


My thoughts - I think La Junta is with Emeth running about in every deck... Stupid +20atk... but then again I'm using the Junta this week XD
