Hello UR players,
The changes to the penalty list are:

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!

Or a much easier solution to just penalize Xantiax Robb -25 and solve the problem.. Junta/FPC can have a no brain player win every match when they draw him.. no opponent can guess wich of the remaining 5+ damage cards are 10 pillz + fury and or in case a 7 base damage card can just go 13 pillz.. many times the opponent will not even have a theorethical chance to block that.. with a bad draw of 2*2*2*3* let's say..
Who get's my point?
And La Junta is broken in T1DT as it is so this option just makes them.. hmm super ultra broken
Not really complaining as anyone can go and play a deck like that.. so it is free for all but still if Icaro is a problem with Avola than Xantiax Robb is a problem with any 7 base damage card..
Mybe XRobb is considered less of a problem because not so many people have and play him. I personally rarely encountered him in DT and since i mostly play piranas LJ are not that scary for me
I predict they'll release one more pack with XRobb and only then penalize him
