Hello, I'm a long time elo player and I had this idea regarding the elo updates from time to time.
I really wonder if the staff really considers checking out how clans or cards work in elo before announcing about it. I ask the staff, once in a while, check how is the meta in elo before making announcements like how fantasy rivals were playing in the ranked match before they nerfed/ buff card some card when I was playing there.
However if they can't really commit to my suggestion, they can do a survey, a poll or make a thread of their experiences in elo so far prior to the update. Then, they can decide how will shift the meta in elo once they announce.
It is quite a democratic idea, of course, but not really the solution to balance the meta as much as every card game can. I suggested it to give the staff an idea what to ban and unban on their next update. Cause in my honest opinion, with these over 1000 cards we have today, some cards are just so ridiculous in a 'competitive" format. raven and stompah for example , but these ridiculous cards are out this topic.
