Hello Urban Rivals players,
First of all, we apologize for this update to be released so late.
Here there are the reasons behind the aforementioned changes.
We observed that a lot of players asked us to be more strict on the cards permitted in Polit Arena.
This is the reason why we decided to limit to EFC Tower some cards that could sometimes make a Z Palace VS Polit Arena matchup prohibitive: Clover, Butcher Braxton, Nekron.
We also lowered down to Danger Zone #behemoth, a card who spotted playrates and winrates a bit too high even for EFC Tower.
If these low-zones changes will be welcomed by the majority of the players, we may operate more often in this sense in the future for more cards.
Regarding Z Palace:
As usual, our actions are meant to remove from the zone the cards spotting too high winrates and deemed too powerful, while trying to help the least played clans and reduce the strenght of the most played clans. We also try to keep a close look on the Legendary cards, modifying the ones that resulted to be too strong or too weak.
Dollum had a great impact on the meta, and Skeelz was the most played clan this month.
However, without him, a few weeks ago the clan was on the bottom of the ranking.
Since both #beck-nena and Plunk would be out of Z Palace basing on their release date, we would like to see how the clan will perform with Dollum and without both of them.
Beck-Nena and Plunk were allowed to help the clan climbing the ranks in the past months, but there is no more need for that.
We saw that the swap Davis-Glover brought nothing to the table, as La Junta firmly remained a top tier clan. We think that #ed 13 spots too high play rates and win rates to remain in the zone, but before its release La Junta were one of the least played clans.
We would like to try a compromise: the Davis-Glover swap is removed and Ed 13 leaves the Z Palace, but instead of restoring Victor, we will allow Brianna.
After lots of observation, we think there are situations in which Tiwi Ld is not an healthy card for the meta. These are the cases when Tiwi loses the round 1 against cards with low Damage, not only triggering the Frozn bonus, but also restoring the same Life his owner lost, or even more. This potential play is too advantageous for a 3 stars card.
Similarly to what we did to Bonnie Ld, we would like to try putting a high maximum on his ability, to avoid the situation mentioned above and make the card less polyvalent.
Junkz kept rising in usage, reaching a whopping 3rd position last month, but also spotting quite high winrates in general. We think they have extremely solid choices at any level, but nothing really so powerful to deserve a ban.
Travis Ld was the most played ld card last season, even more popular than Tiwi Ld.
He was made stronger in the past month to help Junkz climbing the ranks, but we think that right now that is no longer necessary.
We restored his original 6-4 stats and made his damage reduction become -7 damages min 3.
Similar to Aviria Ld, he is now a great counter to high Damages cards in survivor (like Kolos Cr!), but this change should keep him and its clan in check in EFC.
On the other side of the ranking:
Sakrohm remained the least played clan, with VX Nembus having little to no impact.
We think Ahseya is too strong to be restored, so we approached things differently, trying to give the clan more choices during deckbuilding by restoring Aleister and Virginia.
Aleister should pair well with VX Nembus, Baka and Fomalhaut Ld for a half-deck focussing on life gap and damage reduction, while Virginia should be an excellent alternative pick to Dashra.
Montana: The loss of Leone made montana lose lots of positions in the ranking. We would like to try and restore Waller in place of the never used Lorenzo.
Uppers: we decided to restore Nemo Mt in place of the never used Van Heckton, in order to mantain the "rule" of every clan having access to four different 3 stars cards.
We created Bakuta Ld to be a solid wall and match opener with low damages, but the equalizer condition and its low base power makes him a bit too unreliable to fulfill this role properly.
We decided to change its ability to Brawl: -3 opp. Attack min 3 and to give him 1 more base Power. This should help him to mantain usability troughout all the match despite of the opponent, and will also permit him to be more dangerous than before in low pillz battles against Hive, Montana, Uppers and Sakrohm.
The loss of Tengu and La Salerosa made Huracan lose a lot of positions in the ranking, and Buga Baga Ld didn't help them as much as we expected. We decided to try and reduce his minimum from 2 to 1. This should make him a bit more dangerous, as well as giving him something different from Zapatino in the deckbuilding at lower zones.
The last change was anticipated last month: we decided to try and give one more base Damage to Pl4gue Ld, in order to make him more impactful on the match and help him distinguish in playstyle from Bikini Joe Ld.
That's all folks
We hope you will like the new Dominion that will come out this Friday...
