The moderators currently online have seen dozens of reports come in in the past hour. There is definitely something odd going on right now, yes. The admin staff is looking into it. I expect that it will resolve itself in a little while, but in the meantime, here are two quick fixes that I hope will help:
1) Go to adobe.com, and make sure you have the latest version of Flash Player installed.
2) Clear out your internet cache. (How to do so depends on your browser.)
Log out, then log back in. That fixes most tech issues. If that doesn't help, and you've LOST something as a result, you need to contact Customer Support, via the green ? tab in the upper right. (If you haven't lost anything, and it's simply an annoyance, please be patient, and let the admins work their magic. ;-] )
Also - Keep an eye on here the Staff Announcements. The admins will post when the glitches have been fixed, or provide an update with further instructions.

As of January 31st 2011, Copper, Bridget, Rolph, Rowdy, Lou, Shann, Emeth and Oshitsune will join the list of characters permanently banned by the staff in the ELO mode.
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.
You’ve been asking for a more strategic ELO mode with a less decisive chance factor (on cards draw and pillz).
Semi-evo cards appeared to be a big advantage for those who can afford them. We’ve hesitated quite a while on banning them because we didn’t want to deprive you of using some interesting and balanced semi-evo characters but there are just a few of them compared to all those which can skew the game. From now you’ll have to fully evolve your characters if you want to use them in ELO.
Regarding the life points rise, it will prevent the easy two-shots and then reduce the domination of high damage characters. They are still important in this mode but they won’t be able to win the match too easily now.
It’s still a test. Don’t hesitate to tell us your feelings about it on the forum so as to make the ELO mode satisfactory for everyone.
We've already told you that we were going to see how things would be going with the secret voting system about possible changes in ELO mode. And that's exactly what we’ve done.
Firstly, we’ve decided to leave the voting system as it is. It works well and should work even better in the future with characters banned thanks to votes.
We've checked voting results and the most frequently played characters in ELO stats.
We've decided to permanently ban 5 characters: Kolos, Marco, Zatman, Hawk and Ratanah.
Kolos is permanently banned because it was obvious that you did not want him in ELO any more. He’s been banned nearly every weeks since the voting system release and we thought it was pointless to keep on using your votes against him.
Marco, Zatman, Hawk and Ratanah have also been frequently banned by your votes so we thought that these permanent bans would offer a fairer game.
Admittedly Ratanah was banned less often than Shakra but we calculated that her ban would greatly help in reducing the Roots' dominance while still making them playable. Whereas Shakra’s ban would have left the Roots with very strong chances of building powerful half-decks for a reasonable amount of stars.
We didn’t want to ban any All Stars or Piranas (Smokey or Striker, for example) even if they were concentrating a large part of votes. We figured out you would be more free to vote and decide by yourselves which characters need to be remove from ELO.
If you live in Philippines, you'll discover a new and easier mean of payment available in the Shop : MOL. You have to create a MOL account first to buy MOL points.
You can buy some online or thanks to E-pins available at 7 Eleven.

We’ve just made a new Deathmatch update. No need to report us problems you had before this update if they are in the list below. Of course, if you keep on having the same problems in spite of this update, then report them to us.
The persecution penalty decreases from -10 to -5 points (we like the idea but we also understand that it can be a pain).
The glitch which was throwing us out of DM room and make us join the Fight Club (teleportation glitch) is solved.
The bonus points gained after 4 victories in a raw are reduced from 20 to 15. But the run doesn’t stop there, you’ll keep on wining these 15 points after 5, 6, 7 victories, etc.
New bonus : if you are the first one winning a match in a DM (10 points)
New bonus : if you win a match after a run of 3 or more defeats (15 points)
New bonus : if you make a player lose while he/she was having a 3+ victories run (15 points)
New bonus : if you beat a higher lever player (5 points)
For those of you who didn’t watch Clint TV last night, here’s a rundown of the finals of Clint City Idol! Cherry opened the show and set the night on fire with her feminist pop songs. Stella won the hearts of all her intergalactic fans despite singing in Glinkon dialect. And although Bianca’s musical outpourings weren’t a huge hit with the young, that wouldn't have stopped the judges, who’d been paid-off by the Uppers, from voting for her. But when Russel underwent his transformation and started howling at the moon, there was no doubt about it - a voice like that definitely deserved first prize!!
The judge of the Clint City Book of Records is in a tricky position. Just who is going to receive the cup for the Most Useless Record in Clint City? Will it be Dallas, who throws all sorts of heavy objects impossible distances? Ernst, the rat-man who devours all living creatures lurking in the sewers? Or Ace, Borgia Palace's most skilful and dishonest croupier? Oh, if only he knew just how many creatures Felix, the radioactive flea who gave Logan his special powers, had bitten, he’d surely take the prize!
After a somewhat shaky start, Scott Ld is now a fully-fledged member of the Rescue clan. He’s even got a bit too full of himself and is already thinking about taking over from his aunt Kerry in a year or two’s time! So to calm him down a bit, his aunt has decided to send him on a series of missions that should keep him busy for a while…
Scott Ld is a legendary character who is only available by carrying out missions associated with him. To get hold of this character, you must unlock his last mission by Sunday, May 1st at the latest.
So as to offer to event organizers more possibilities, two new features have been released and are available right now on the event administration tab ( https://img.skitch.com/20110411-eqx35g9bk7r4rn4yurh4sbjesf.png ).
Accept random players:
This new features allows you to fill all available room in your event thanks to a random selection of players waiting to be accepted. If your event has no limited number of players allowed in you can specify it. This tool takes into account the number of players already allowed in (manually or not) your event.
IMPORTANT: the selected players will be allowed in your event and those who are not selected will be automatically refused!
Refuse all waiting players:
This tool will let you empty the list of players waiting in two clicks. Of course you’ll have to confirm this action so as to avoid accidents.
If you meet some problems with these tools, Don’t hesitate to report them to the customer support.
After having tried out various partners, it seems that Crassus has finally found the perfect assistant. Bikini Joe Ld arrived in town full of expectations and hoping to make everyone cry…with laughter. And perhaps with the support of the other Freaks he might at least one day manage to stop crying! Bikini Joe Ld is a legendary character who is only available by carrying out missions associated with him. To obtain this character, you must unlock his last mission before May 15th.

The carefree days are over. Sweet Rosen is obliged to leave her forest to fight alongside the Roots riding on a giant sparrow. Copper's aunt Martha throws herself into the fray and Neil joins forces with the Junkz, despite his delicate condition. The Vortex Clan have got a tough job ahead of them, especially with people like Negodz on their side, who’s using the war to traffic in future technology... Get these characters in the shop's packs
Caelus has been head of the Skeelz Academy for so long now, he'd more or less become part of the furniture. So when he announced his retirement, it came as a huge shock to both his students and colleagues. But they'll be even more surprised when they hear he's decided to devote himself to his secret passion of darts, playing alongside Robb, the undisputed master of the discipline. And in return, the old teacher will initiate Robb in the strange arts of reading and writing... So, it looks like our two old hands have a good few hours of learning ahead of them!!
Some adjustments and improvements have been made on the site :
- Now you could see your stars on your profile on the left (if you have some of course)
- Stars are instantly activated, you won't have to wait after the results of a DT.
- The fifth star (or DT star) can also be earned by ending in the Survivor top 5 (day, week, month) or by being in the ELO top 100.
I remind you that stars are activated only if you have purchased credits within the last 31 days.
- First name and last name were needed in the contact form (http://www.urban-rivals.com/staff/contactus.php) but it wasn't indicated. Now it is.
- A glitch concerning iphone players who could be ban from the Market has been corrected.
- A glitch which was banning some iphone accounts has been corrected.
Soon : the flash version will be updated with some optimizations reducing the use of your computer performance. It should also correct the black images glitch.
The arrival of the Vortex has well and truly upset the balance of power in Clint City.
The clans are left with no choice but to send their members on new and ever more perilous missions...
New missions now await you for every clan and for certain abilities. To find out more, all you need to do is play!
And to Mark the occasion, we've updated the presentation of the missions, dividing them into categories to make things clearer.
There are at least two new missions per clan and more for the Vortex clan and Care ability, making a grand total of 49! As always, missions allow players to win prizes. So, to Mark the occasion we've created the biggest prize since the missions began!!
To find out more, all you need to do is play!
If some of the fighters in Clint City operate out in the open, others prefer to conceal their identity. The members of La Junta have taught Laura the importance of camouflage, while Lucas the hero of the ghetto has chosen to wear a mask. And although no disguise would have stopped Ulawele’s fans from recognizing him, Pastor has become unrecognizable ever since his serums made him superhuman.
Fate sometimes takes strange turns in Clint City.
Long before his tentacles grew, Otto used to love eating Karmov’s cotton candy and while visiting the zoo he would linger for hours in front of the walrus enclosure, never guessing that one day Eggman would become the zoo's new keeper!
With regards to Zhu Tang, the Fang Pi with the cursed sword… no, Otto has never run into him and that’s probably just as well!
A star of the small screen arrives in town!
To promote her new show on Clint TV, Gail has no qualms about calling upon the services of some of the most eminent members of the local Jet Set. And the Uppers are determined to make her fantastic publicity! Gail Ld is a legendary character who is only available by carrying out missions associated with her. To obtain this character, you must unlock her last mission before April 10.
Kerry has finally found a way to wake up Copper and Zlatar’s other victims who are still fast asleep in their cocoons. But she’s missing a vital ingredient that Dayton and Coby must urgently go and find. Read here the first episode of Dayton and Coby's Pillz Hunt.

As we all know, appearances can be deceiving. At first glance, one might well be won over by the beautiful Ivana or Maurice's tasty platters. Edwin the gardener would immediately instill one with fear and the most natural reaction to the Vortex's insect-man, Kronnen, would be to make a run for it. But the fact remains that, in their own special way, all these characters are just as dangerous as each other… Get these characters in the shop's packs
