2 and 3 are really fine

Elo sportsmanship these days:

if you win, good job, you're such a good player.
if you lose, its bc the opponent played like an idiot. bl that idiot

Lol why do you say that? what makes this week so special?

I've been playing around with skeelz and pussycats, maybe even a mix of the 2..

Would you suggest replacing Kephren for Dr Falkenstein and Lorna for Plunk?

I don't think there is any need to beef up the other clans at all. Now that Huracan are getting their bans we are back to 'normal'. I hope UR staff can create more cares and more clans without having balancing issues again. I know it must be harder then we gamers think as a lot of game developers from all types of games struggle to make new content balanced. But I don't think because one clan is stronger you should make the others stronger, you will end up in a viscous cycle until all cards are 8 power with massive attack modifiers or 1hitk0 cards for all the clans, in other words, boring.

I built a very similar deck to this recently-- since it's built around 3-rounding and defense, I would switch Otto to Belle. Chiara cr vs. Sandro is pretty much a matter of preference. Chiara cr is potentially a stronger wall, but prot power cards match her, so I prefer Sandro for his unconditional walling-- only Glorg or Leviatonn (who is banned this week) can stop him.

I appreciate everyone's feedback thank you very much, also Richliu, I appreciate the invitation, but I prefer to be a lone wolf for now and in the near future start my own guild smiley

Managed to get to 1220, but couldn't get any higher though.

Just play Half until there's a week when Ongh isn't banned.
You could make a decent half deck with like
Pegh, Mindy or Jean, Moegura or Benicio, and Radek.
Which gives you room for a 5s, 4s, 3s and a 2s.

Bodenpower 5
Blaaster Cr 4
Bball 2
Graff 2 or Randal 3
Oshitsune 4
Artus 2
Azgroth 4 or Pan 3 if you use Randal
Eadh 2 or Phyllis 2

Rules: ELO

** Must be Level 15 or over**

1.) Deck composition: 25 Stars Max

Deck composition in ELO is very important in order to succeed in the game. You can either play using a mono-clan (single clan) or bi-clan (two clans). The option is very open and wide for you to pick from, so let your imagination go wild.

→ 1.1) Mono-Clan deck

Many players will go with a mono clan deck if some of their cards are support dependent. What does this mean?

Support ability/bonus - If your card have Support ability/bonus, it will benefit from having other cards from the same clan in your draw.

If using cards like John with ability "Support: Power +1" and you have 3 other card from Sentinel clan in your draw then John's Power increases by 4

→ 1.2) Bi-Clan / 2 Clan decks

In order to make a good deck using 2 different clan decks, you need to ensure to have a well balanced combination. For this to be effective, consider factors such as ability, power, bonus and clan combinations.

Let's explore on this a bit more, Many ELO players I've seen would use combinations like Freaks / Pussycats , Roots / Sakrohm , Gheist / Sakrohm and many more.

The big question is - how do I know which clans work best with each other?
Unfortunately, there's no specific answer to this question. As I always tell players, it all depends on the strategy when using them.

For example:
[ Freaks / Pussycats ] Strategy: Poison + damage = reduces opponent's life to atleast 3, therefore, freaks will be used as offence, while the pussycats will be the defence. Add the ability of cards like Malicia (with + 1 life max 15 when defeated)then you MAY have a good advantage over your opponent

I can go on and on about deck combinations and still would not be able to help everybody find the right combo for them. It would be best if you seek specific advice by posting here in the forum. That way, the other ELO players may be able to assist you with your queries.

→ 1.3) Remember the ELO banned cards: Staff + Player voting system

All cards banned for ELO will be listed here http://www.urban-rivals.com/game/elo/banned_characters.php

2.) Game play strategy

→ 2.1) Pillz use

You can use pillz to multiply your character’s power to the get total attack in your battles. Remember the highest attack wins, so use your pillz wisely.

• You will start off with 12 pillz. It is your decision how you want to spread this out with all your 4 characters in your draw.

• You can also use pillz to add +2 damage to your character by activating “FURY”

A word of advice:
"The most important thing about pillz use is to anticipate how your opponent will play based on your draw and your opponent’s draw...It is not advisable to play 0 pills in your first round each time but do not overpill (more than 6 pills) except in some special occasions. This is because you might face several opponents who 0-1 pill in their early rounds. Hence you must take care that you always use your pills wisely and plan out the game.

Also, if your opponent has 0 pilled round 1 and you have put in 4-5, make sure that you have created sufficient life difference in that round to actually threaten to seal the victory in round 2. Make a relation between the damage you make and the pills you use. Try to not pill too much on cards that do not create a major life gap. This will help your game"

→ 2.2) Strategies

→ 2.2.1) Bluff

Knowing an effective way to bluff is important in all aspects of the game. “A bluff is trying to make your opponent believe you are going to play the obvious way but instead you play offbeat.”

→ 2.2.2) Letting cards through

In your fights you need to weigh if it is worth wasting your pillz trying to beat a very power card or just let it through. Keep in mind that many people might use these cards as a bluff to make you waste your pillz.

→ 2.2.3) Offensive vs defensive game style

In your fight you can either choose to be an offensive player or a defensive one or a combination of both. Offensive game play is done when you use your cards assertively in a battle ensuring you win with these cards. Defensive game play is often played with cards with (- damage as an ability/bonus).

→ 2.3) Taking the Draw

Often times, matches can be guaranteed draws (when both players finish round 4 with the same number of life points). By taking this opportunity, you can avoid losing a lot of points, however you also cannot win lots. This tactic, when used in moderation, can help save you from dropping a lot of points and keep pressing on towards your next ELO goal.

I used freaks/sakrohm using:
Daqun, shazam, Wolfgang, Olga
Juatya, wakai, Murray, alestair
I used to get close to/over 1300 w this basic deck using slight variations.

Yeah that happened to me 2 times while I was in elo

Hopefully y'all can help me out. I'm trying to complete two legendary missions right now so if you guys could help me out with a mono Vortex deck with Galen in it that would be fantastic. thanks a bunch!

Isnt better to buy jungo? If it is, which cards to buy then?

monday 09/09/2013

Hey guys, what do you think?
Please bare in mind that the deck has been built on a budget, but to be honest it's extremely effective for it's price! smiley

The Dominatrix

Don't forget to R+C smiley


Have just started collecting vortex actually, n when it comes to elo who cares how ya win, as long as ur winning

Piranas is an economical choice. I used to use : Hawkins, Selma, Raeth, Amiral Coco/ Ector half, not so much expensive but still be effective.
