Bear in mind when you read this, I typically play to 1200 then pack it in.
I think Freaks is not as good as everyone else seems to think. Piranas pillz decks are very unpredictable and have no major weakness. Vortex has everything and is highly undervalued.
For now, worst is Frozn. At present, way too vulnerable to SoB and not enough dmg even with bonus to overcome any DR. Any week Spyke is banned there is no real reason to play Berzerk. They are just whipping boys without him.
@Lafoote really? berzerk aren't worth playing without Spyke? is that why I always happen to run into them in ELO??
If Spyke is unbanned, use Berzerk...people can argue against that but its so much easier to just follow the meta
Gheist/Roots/REscue/Sentinel/Nightmare are the best week to week...even with staples banned
Freaks/Berzerk/Uppers/Montana/All Stars also have their shining star weeks where their cards are unbanned
The rest are used on player preference...for instacne I use La Junta and Skeelz even though they arent overly used clans
@wats_happenin, you seem to agree with me, but with odd phrasing. Sure you run into Berserk a lot without Spyke, but do you lose?
He's right about some of the 'best' clans though. If you're new to ELO, Rescue practically plays itself and will give you a smooth indoctrination. Cliff is a killing machine when he's available.
Player preference definitly is important too. Good planning can make any clan into something strong and worthwhile.
