There are 6 different Zones:
1- Dark corners no limit
2- Chocomuscle ring last 50 characters released from each clan are authorized.
3- Danger zone last 40 characters released from each clan are authorized.
4- EFC Tower last 30 characters released from each clan are authorized.
5- Polit arena last 20 characters released from each clan are authorized.
6- Z palace last 10 characters released from each clan are authorized.
The more you progress, the more restricted the list of authorized characters becomes.
so you can go up with the cards in each zone once you pass the zone the card is marked for you have to change the deck to the cards aloud in that zone simple really.
bristone is only aloud up to zone 2 after zone 2 cant use bristone any more.
so there technically a banned list but its more a limited list to what can be used an how far you can go with them.
you play a game get points ever 200 points you go up a zone.
All ld's Are aloud no matter what in all zones. so get those ld's.
The daily winnings reward activity. They unlock once you’ve played 10 matches in a day. The weekly and seasonal winnings vary according to your position in the players’ ranking tables. However, to be placed in the rankings, you must play at least 5 matches per week.
for many players make it high fast to get past those op decks an dont worry they wont be op for 2 long the higher you go the harder an easier it will become.
I think we need some better explanations from the staff as to how going in between the zone point values effects what zone you are actually able to use cards from. Also, maybe this is just due to my personal experience, but I feel like the equation that they are using to calculate points seems too harsh given the amount of people that actually play EFC at any given time. They probably have a system similar to other games' elo calculators, but since there are only a little more than 3500 players currently ranked in EFC, the odds of you playing someone around your skill level is very low, which causes people to lose a lot of points quickly due to being matched outside of their zone.
Basically, I think that matching outside of your zone is fine to do, but the points lost from losing to a lower zone deck should be less. I'm tired of winning 5 battles in a row to gain about 50 or 60 points and then losing to a crazy deck from Dark Corners and losing 25 points. UR is trying to do something interesting and new with the game, but they should really take into account the actual size of the player base.
@nayrSlayer your completely right. on the way the point system should be tweaked you should lose less points for fighting some one lower then your zones but if you win aginst that stronger deck witch since its lower zone would be much stronger should give more points for the game if you win.
a point tweak like this would make the mode more fun but be harder for staff to do all the math. may be you lose half the points for each zone lower then you to a point.
if your zone say tower fighting a dark corner should half the points lost if you lose. double if you win cause that's one up hill battle. an odd's are you will lose with a +80% change of it being a loss.
