We have the great pleasure of announcing you some changes which should delight the players seeking fair play. Those changes are already operational :
- In case of default win, the player who withdraw from the battle lose all the progress made in his missions during the match.
- In case of too frequent default wins (for now : 3 times during the last 15 minutes), the player cannot play temporarily and receive a message from Kate (for now : a 5 minutes ban). This limit does not apply in ELO to let the top players keep withdrawing from matches to avoid leveling up their characters.
- The mission concerning KO's with one character are now valid if there is KO and the specified character won its round, which does not need to be the last round anymore. (so you can validate KO's with Ghumbo even if you make him win the first round, which will avoid playing in a predictable way).
- Missions will not be activated in the Events' rooms anymore (we do not mind if you make arrangements in guilds' rooms, but we are against the Events created only in this purpose).
- An optimization has been done which should reduce the lag in case of large population.
The sound of guns is echoing through the streets of Clint City. As cute Karen wheels her pool cue to explosive effect, the fearsome Ahkab is all set to harpoon the Piranas’ enemies. And while Ngrath has come all the way from space to sell his weapons to the Sakrohm, Gudvibz prefers to spread his 100% organic peace vibes. Get these characters in the shop’s packs.
It’s nearly the week-end and we’ve updated the AS3 Flash to 1.1 version.
After having released it as default version instead of the AS2, we noticed quite a lot of problems (unfortunately, these problems haven’t been reported during the beta test).
We worked hard during two weeks to solve everything.
So what’s new in this version ?
- The initial part which loads the downloads of the different modules is faster and give more accurate information about the progress.
Numerous corrections on the network engine (the blocked QB glitch should have disappeared).
Corrections of memory leaks (the game should remain as smooth on the 100th game session as on the first one).
The played cards are completely grey and not just the art (to see them better).
Network traffic optimization to get back the different missions and game states (less wait during loadings).
The AS3 game is now compatible with Flash Player 9 (and not from Flash Player 10 version only).
If you can test the AS3 version and tell us if it’s better, it would help us a lot (and it would be a relief to ).
It's party time on board the Piranas' ship. Ever since Bonnie Ld turned up, the drinks have been flowing and the mood has never been so good! The pirates have even stopped thinking about fighting. Well, for now at least...
Bonnie Ld is a legendary character who is only available by carrying out missions connected with her. To get hold of this character, you must unlock her final mission before March 06.
He's understanding, he's patient, he has a good sense of humour, he's not a hobbit for real, he's full of paint stains after his hard training and he is available for behind spammed.
Welcome aboard Bilbo1_OC
Few things you have to remind :
- You won't become a moderator by asking. In fact it's worse than trying to divide by zero.
- There are no set criteria for the moderator position except the changing ones constantly created by my weird and sick mind.
- People are not selected because of their levels, guilds (but if you want to join Open Casket, please, spam elchew_OC a lot so he can understand what it means), ELO ranking or colour of their socks, it's far worse than that and I won't tell you more about it or it will wake Cthulhu up. He is always very grumpy when he wakes up and it's not really a good thing.
- Believe me or not, moderators are players who volunteer, they don't get massive super powers, they can't change water in chocolate milk nor tell you what will be next collectors. They are nice people with a big quality : they are very patient. And is some cases, it's a bigger power than changing water in chocolate milk.

After having toured all over the world with her show, Bella Ld is delighted to be back home in Clint City. And what with her adoring fans and her little financial arrangements with Ottavia, she’s not planning on leaving Borgia’s Palace any time soon! Bella 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 February 06.
The war between the soldiers of the future and the gangs of Clint City rages on! The beautiful and fearsome Vortex princess Shaakarti leads her troops, while her vile negotiator Izsobahd attempts to forge secret alliances. But they're going to have to be prepared for fierce opposition from the Sentinel who've just recruited Kamakura, and from the Rescue who now include Ash and his killer hand among their numbers... Get these characters in the shop’s packs.
Given how long it’s been since you've been fighting each another in the Danger Zone and the Fight Club, it’s little wonder the place has gotten a bit messed up! So now it’s time to knock down a few walls, touch up the paintwork and provide you with squeaky clean rooms (at least for the time being...)
From now on, the Danger Zone is accessible from level 25 upwards, so as to really set it apart from the Fight Club. This will enable the more experienced players, wishing to do so, to fight amongst themselves and for those new to the game to have fairer and more evenly balanced matches.
The default mode of all the rooms will be “No Random”. The default mode for any new player is set to “No Random”. If you prefer to play with Random you can adjust the game preferences on the top of the page in each games room, or in your own personal preferences (/player/edit.php,”Preferences” tab).
We just modified the meaning of the displayed price on the cards (in yellow, if you let this option activated) and of the min/average/max prices displayed on each character page : those prices are not based on the whole current sales anymore, but on the last sales done.
To put it more clearly :
- Before, the displayed price on the card was the lowest price available on the Market.
- Now, the displayed price on the card is an average price of the last sales done.
This is the step following the Market graphs and trend set-up : this new value is more representative of the real card price, and so gives a more suitable selling price suggestion.
This is a new functionality as well, because it permits to estimate the price of a card which is not currently on sale in the Market (the rarest collectors, for example), which was not possible with the old system.
These new estimations are used in the lot value calculation in auctions and in the public preset value calculation too.
Unbeknownst to the good folk of Clint City, some strange characters have just turned up in town. While the mysterious Aniki is welcomed at the airport by the Montana clan, Numar emerges from the ocean depths to get acquainted with the Ulu Watu. But will they manage to fit in with the locals? Well, they’ll certainly stand a better chance than Nobrocybix’s musical robot, Qubik, or Astrid's giant acid-spitting worm, Wurmhol.
I just wanted to let you know that, after having been an active player of the game, I just joined the Urban Rivals staff !
I'll be working alongside Eusebe, Fraggle, Dr Ido and all the others. My main focus will be the gameplay : cards, fight modes etc. To do that job correctly I'll stay in link with your moderators so as to keep in touch with your needs, and I'll keep on playing to stay in touch with the game's reality.
Yup, that's a lot of work, which is why I come in reinforcement.
Although I have stopped trying to make miracles when I saw I couldn't change water into anything, the staff and I will (as always) do our best to give you the best possible game, and my presence should give us better reactivity to your needs. Many things are planned already, but I'll ask you to be patient because it will take time !! Still, I think the months to come will bring you many new and exciting things, and hope you'll find them to your liking !!
Cheers and good game y'all !!
P.S. : no need to put your "groceries list" here, we do read the other subjects.
It might have taken years for these two old friends to meet up again, but now it’s happened.

After receiving some remarks about the graphic evolution of Vickie Cr, we wanted to explain you the reasons which led us to this modification.
Until a few months, most of the characters created were not processed for a high definition adaptation and notably the very first characters like our dear Vickie Cr.
But with the technical advance of different devices like the Iphone, the Ipod Touch or the Ipad, and for a better rendering ; to our great regret, we had to rework some of our oldest creations.
Indeed, older characters were created with a very limited resolution, and unfortunately it became impossible for us to easily work with those pictures.
Even if we weren't really for a modification, the different evolutions we plan on Urban Rivals force our hand.
Admittedly, some visuals will be slightly affected (it's the case for our Vickie Cr), but the obtained results are very convincing and do not denature your characters even so.
The staff gave in because of too much pressure from Clint City clans who where asking for better introduction page. No one will ever know if it has been decided because of threats from Montana or Pussycats’ smiles but we’ve prepared a brand new clans page where you’ll find all information you need.
We will unveil it today with four tabs : clans introduction, clan missions, best presets and your comments. Merry Christmas to all clans!
The Skeelz academy opens its doors mid-semester to welcome two new killer students. What with Drakeís flames and Belogosiís fangs, recess will never be the same again! Meanwhile the Pussycats turn to Selina to make her Mark on their patch, and the Piranas take their chances with Puff, hoping heíll be a breath of fresh air in the clan. Get these characters in the shopís packs.
