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!

Ok one last spam and i will not write in this thread anymore .
"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)"- doesn't Kylorenne fit into this graph as well ?( problem with hive solved)
And you don't want to remove completely the pentalty of the competitor clan's cards so what is happening to the clans that are not competitors to the title of being the best in DTt1 or DT t2 shouldn't they also resive a fair chance of scoring most points in those modes? like either release cards that will make them competitive or unban jackie cr
As an Uppers T2 player, I think the changes here were pretty fair. I'm glad to see Herman's back, but I don't think that his returning will change anything. Most of the Uppers card in T1 has six damage, which opens up for a 2HKO. In my opinion, Herman is just the anti-PC since, after the Pussycats bonus, Herman will still have six damage, same as Nellie's. The problem is, though, PC is rarely seen in DT- leaving people wondering "Why Herman when Nellie?" The two damage doesn't matter anyways since you'll probably have Josephine or Kazayan to clean up after Nellie did her job.
In T2, Herman is even more useless. You can use Lady, Sabrina, Gradymag, and Glenn - all of whom does not have a penalty. Glenn has her nifty ability combined with her high damage to reduce the opponent to 3 life, and Sabrina, Gradymag, and Lady can pack a punch and it's relatively easy to do so. Herman won't fit in here. Herman's main job is to do damage, but Lady and Sabrina took his place since he's been gone. Then there's the power reduction, but Nellie's beat him there, and she's arguably better since 4 stars COULD win her tie breakers. Then I guess he's a good bluff, but Glenn is equally effective since no one wants to take 6 damage + -3 Life.
In my opinion, I think Herman should go back and bring back Dorian, although that might be a little too upsetting. Sure, back in the day before Lady or Sabrina, Herman coming back to Tourney might excite some people, but things change.
