While the All Stars and the Fang Pi quietly strengthen their numbers with the arrivals of Liu and Kang for the sportsmen, and Unagi and Rei for the residents of the Golden Mountain Monastery, it's the Junkz who are really hitting home this week with Gil and the formidable Taham, a giant hamster doped up on pillz, who's as cute as he is destructive. The Junkz are back. Be prepared… Get these characters in the shop’s New Blood, Action and Cool Attitude pack

Their emperor’s arrival has boosted the morale of the Vortex and with the two new recruits that turned up this week in the shape of Butch and Lovhak, they can now relaunch their offensive, confident of the danger they pose. Meanwhile, the Nightmare welcome Orlok to their ranks, a very cute but nasty demon, and the Jungo let Eduardo loose on the city's streets. Get these characters in the shop’s packs
As his men seem incapable of annihilating the Clint City clans, the Vortex’s merciless emperor, Dregn has decided to leave his fortress and come to Clint City in person. At his side is Galen, the Vortex’s unflappable engineer, who has sprung into action to strengthen the link between Clint City and the future. Meanwhile, unaware of Dregn’s imminent arrival, the Freaks present their new star attraction, Magda, the Roller Ball champion, and Jiro joins forces with the Junkz to party the nights away.

Thanks to Feelyn, Clint City survived Kolos, but now’s not the time to rest on their laurels. The child zombies are casting fear throughout the city and Ielena has yet to unveil her demonic plan. You can now find out what happens next in the adventures of the Sentinels.
Some people would do just about anything to get ahead in the terrible war of the Clans. Take the Sakrohm, for example, who didn’t think twice about releasing a gelatinous and gluttonous alien, who goes by the name of Slopsh, onto the city’s streets. Fortunately the clan’s other new recruit, Nimestiec seems a bit more reasonable. In the meantime, the Nightmare clan welcomes Phyllis the witch and novice demon, Azgroth to their ranks. It would seem that peace and quiet is not on the cards for Clint City quite just yet. Get these characters in the shop’s New Blood and Danger packs
After a month of voting, the time has finally come to find out who you’ve chosen.
Clint City’s new ambassador of beauty doesn’t want to pose for the cameras in her current guise. So, you’ll have to wait a few days while we come up with suitable attire for the occasion
Here are the names of the 5 finalists. Can you guess who the overall winner is?
We did an operation on the servers between 4 am and 11 am to solve the massive slowdowns problem. During this period of time we had to deactivate missions so you can keep playing.
Some more explanations about the problem :
The number of missions unlocked by players is permanently increasing. For some time now, when a certain number of players online is reached, the server doesn’t have enough room to keep all necessary data in memory. It had to keep on doing round trips to the hard disk (which is far slower than the memory). The result is that it was taking more and more time to give back missions and the other data were pending.
After a lot of optimizations, observations, false bright ideas, real bright ideas... we manage to isolate the problem and then find the appropriate solution.
Last night, we changed the data base structure so the missions requests go faster. We also reorganized the server to give more memory (double it) to the database so it can keep more data in memory.
We will also duplicate this server and split «the work» on several machines. We will optimize the data structure to avoid the slowdowns when there will be even more players than now.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Be sure we are doing our best to solve these problems as fast as we can. Unfortunately, some problem are more difficult and longer to solve than others.
After some testing and tweaking the Deathmatch mode is finally leaving the beta testing phase to join the other Urban Rivals’ game modes officially. In support of the new launch we have created new missions for this game mode. Simply logon and play to discover them all!
Summer is coming to its end and our ELO ban test is ending too. We’ve noticed several things: a real change in strategies and a very different Top 10 each week.
We gathered that these changes bore fruits
We have noticed several very positives things, particularly with the use of wide variety of decks. But we also noticed negative things like the lack of clearness of ELO bans, it was a bit untidy.
Next week we will come back to a more usual ELO mode but we will add some bans. We will take some more time to work on the concept and come back with something more complete and comprehensive as soon as possible.
We will give you the list of banned characters soon.
We wanted to thank you for your involvement, your enthusiasm and your numerous comments which helped a lot.
We will review everything and come back with a much clearer system.
Even within the most united Clans, some members prefer to go it alone. This is certainly the case for Ray, La Junta's new member. Solitary guardian of the Northern Mountains, he patrols solo, warding off any dangers lurking in these chilly climes. Down with the Skeelz, all anyone’s talking about is Eloxia, their new cold-blooded student. Meanwhile, the Sakrohm welcome Embolt to their ranks and the Bangers can now rely on the help of Kevlaer.
«Your comments have been taken into account : we’ve changed the new Deathmatch mode again to make it more interesting for those who want to level up.
The «DM» points Don’t exist any more. From now on the points you’ll get are normal battle points which count in your levelling (they will replace the points you would have had normally). At the end, the bonus of points is added.
All these points are taken into account in rankings.
No! Not all the Clint City clans fight for their own pleasure. Some of them, like the Roots and the Rescue, fight for noble causes that fully justify their warring ways. And with Lou and Arno joining the ranks of the ecologists and Suzie and Aurora teaming up with the Rescue services, the city's two most selfless clans are set to go from strength to strength.

The clans of Clint City are standing strong and the Vortex are quickly realizing that to achieve their mission they're going to need to crank things up a notch or two. Fortunately for them, they can now rely on the support of Kobalth and Onyx. Until now, the summoner’s bodyguards had stayed very much in the background but they’ve finally decided to throw themselves into the fray. Meanwhile, the Jungo can now count on Nahema, while Harold joins forces with the Uppers. Get these characters in the shop’s packs
