I really cant seem to get it Lamar Cr is the only staple 5* allstars got besides oyoh so if you want to use a 5* you totally lack freedom in your choice. Also his stats are far from too strong compare him to lou or fuzz or cliff ... He was propably overpowered 2 years ago when he got banned but by now hes not much more then an average 5* (he is strong, yes, but permaban worthy? I dont think so ... )
Id really appreciate if the staff could reconsider some of their old permabans in elo. As the metagame changes through new card releases the bans should change aswell.
Lamar cr doesnt deserve a ban, he should be on a level with copper. Often banned by the users, sometimes banned by the staff.
Well santa babe.Here's the thing.You cant compare them.Why?Wee lee was banned because of his evo flexibility from level 2 onwards.Wee lee wont get banned because he'll get abused again,and if you fuse nanook,taigo,and serena/numar,you have a 11-13 star hand of torture to fight.But im ranting about the wrong card here.Lamar cr was a monster in the old ELO.Could he be onenow?Probably not,he is a 5 star after all,and the best he could do vs 8 powered cards is lower them to his level at least.I would consider unbanning him,but this seems like a cry to raise his price into the millions.So i would unban him if it was for the good of the game,but i wouldnt because it's just politicing market manipulation.And i also like how you just ignored essie,eyrton and el gringo and possibly hammer as competent 5's for the All Stars. And comparing him to lou,fuzz and cliff doesnt help either when he can beat all those cards.Back to the drawing board with this idea.
essie and eyrton have way too little damage to be viable as 5* cards, el gringo and hammer are just totally weak compared to most other 5* from other clans.
back to lamar cr :
1. I do NOT own him, id love to buy him but theres no reason to do so as both him and his clanmates are too weak compared to other clans in both deathmatch and survivor + he is elobanned.
2. He is obviously strong, but he is not stronger then fuzz and those, even if he wins against them in a 1v1. Cards cant be compared 1v1, you have to watch their efficiency in much more cases then just when facing each other. If you wanna talk that way compare him to copper, who wins in a 1v1 against him while having the same damage. Ofc copper isnt elo banned (this argumentation is useless, just trying to answer to your point of view).
Fuzz for example isnt useless against uranus, while lamar gets completely raped (and this isnt the only example)
3.So youre saying you dont wanna balance the game because it might screw up the market? I believe the market should develop according to the metagame and not the other way around...
I think unbanning Lamar Cr would just make the clan OP again.
Remember once when Striker, Marina, Robb, Jessie and Randy are all available in ELO mode? they are the most used character because they are usable against all other clans and suitable in almost all situations, making them the best half-deck clan.
My point here is that even the absence of the 5* of the AllStars in ELO, they still have the potential to do great things. Also one thing, Lamar Cr is just like Striker, both are permaban because they also do the same thing, both has 6power (good for the clan) with a 8dmg(5* Lamar Cr) and 6dmg(4* Striker) and an ability that stops the function of the enemy so if you are saying Lamar Cr doesn't deserve to be permaban, then it's like you're also saying that Striker doesn't deserve to be permaban.
Speaking of Lamar Cr itself, he has a fewer flaws, unlike Copper who gets crippled against SOA clans which is hard to avoid
