Hello UR players,
The changes to the penalty list are:
Isatis -3 -> -1
Oscar -3 -> -1
Avola -3 -> -25
Robb Cr -3 -> -1
Saki -3 -> -1
Coby -3 -> -1
Martha -1 -> 0
Herman -1 -> 0
Phoebe -1 -> -3
Beck - Nena -1 -> -3
Caelus Cr -1 -> 0
Dr Norton Cr -1 -> 0
Nameko -1 -> 0
John Doom 0 -> -1
Impera Sloane 0 -> -1
Quetzal 0 -> -1
You can see the complete list here:
Game -> Game Modes -> Tourney -> Daily tournaments history
No changes have been done to the DT rules.
Here I will explain you the reasons of these changes:
The cards with -25 are cards that shouldn’t be used in the mode.
- Cards too strong that can single-handedly win alone a match (ex: Ymirah, Kiki cr)
- Cards that can easily one-hit-KO the opponent (ex: Kolos, Raven)
- Cards ‘against the TQ logic’ (ex: strong damage reducers like Graksmxxt or Vholt, strong + life cards like Kalindra cr or Bridget)
Avola has been moved in this category since it can one-shot too easily with Icaro.
The cards with -3 are cards that require a huge toll in the deck building. You should use them only if you feel they are crucial in your strategy.
- Cards that have been abused as splash instead than being played in their clan (ex: Spyke)
- Cards that are extremely powerful in the mode, but not game-breaking like the -25 ones (ex: Alec Cr, Lehane)
Phoebe and Beck-Nena have been moved in this category.
The cards with -1 are strong cards that have been used too much in the past without penalties.
You need to decide if playing them anyway, or if using another card of the clan less powerful, but without malus.
Many leaders fall in this category as well.
Isatis, Oscar, Robb Cr, Saki and Coby passed here. We think these are really strong cards indeed, but they can be healthy for the format, increasing variety without being game-breaking. However, we don’t want to remove completely their penalty because their clans are played a lot.
John Doom has been added, to put him on par with his colleagues.
Impera Sloane and Quetzal have been a little too dominant lately and we added them to this list. We are watching closely also Xantiax Robb for the near future.
Raptors and Hive have been lately dominating the DT T2, while in T1 we have La Junta and Montana on the top.Instead than adding more penalties to the top used clans, we decided to try something different this time: to remove the penalties of many cards of the ‘competitor’ clans.
This should increase variety and make DTs more exciting for everyone!We hope that you will like these changes.
Have fun and good UR!

Well just whn i revaluated dr nortons position of points making machine and started to use him despite his penalty he got unbannned. the idea of choosing either him or phoebe was good but spidee kind of beats her, however phoebe norton spidee elvira are pretty powerfull together, so i think phoebe's penalty was well deserved. As for avola icario you now see what happens when you put more strong cards to a super broken clan. Don't listen to anyone that says montana are weak they are broken AF. And nightmare needed icario like card for a long time.In a thread when i had to say "what was nightmares trong side" i sayed its their ability but it was actually that they used to be the clan with the strongest abilities some clans get +dmg nightmare gets kolos. some clans get +1 life per dmg nightmare used to have +2 defeat life nightmare had the first card that can kill and lately with the new abilities nightmare seem to be getting outdated the most they have poor atk manip so if you get behind in the fight there is no coming back eaven kenny cr can't save you. So a strong defeat card that can kill was suposed to be from the nightmare kit and it was the thing that makes them mingle good with freaks and berserk. So may be if you tweak Dudley to min of 0 i think that will make their dj korps kenny cr dudley decks a bit more viable, and this deck requires 3 2* cards to fit into elo so for nightmare its not that easy to find those and will make great duo.
So definately a card like icario was suposed to be a nightmare.
while quetzal was suposed to be a dt survivor card becouse of his no elo gameplay, if you are going to penaltize him in dt just remove him. We all knew his place in the game was to be broken if by any chance you feel he is cracking DT don't let it become huge kill it in the start. And its not like hurakan has no better alternatives to him i like el merkurio, el gaskaro and mamma killa they 3 of them can't coexist in dt with quetzal.
Hive are cool, Every new clan get the this clan is broken comments and their cards all have a weakness, And those 40* decks in dt t2 were pissing the community for a long time so are the people who abuse -25 penalty cards. That thing with using op decks should stop too instead of -25 points just ban them so that there are no smartasses that say it it is posible than we like to do it for fun. Who cares if we make points or not we wreck 26 star decks with 40* and look we make wins. This is actually a very clear way of this games' idea of balance. There is no balance and people are troling it for a long tiem now.
"The cards with -25 are cards that shouldn’t be used in the mode
- Cards that can easily one-hit-KO the opponent
Hive have been lately dominating the DT T2
Kylorenne? Nah, he's good "
Seriously, ban that dude, he's not healthy.
Also Dr Norton Cr, Herman, Saki are a bit too strong to get penalties decreased but oh well, some fresh blood, and Norton is not as cancerous as Gil, and more All Stars means less Raptors which is fine by me and i wanted to play try Herman for a while now, so it's ok i guess
