In order to rebalance ELO mode and to make it more interesting, we’ve decided to lift the ban on Wanda and Baby Q (Pussycats) and instead to ban Lyse Teria Cr (Montana), Alec (Rescue) and Zatman (Uppers). These changes will come into effect from Monday May 26th
Absolutely Mindless Mind - BUT
Kolos is 5 stars and easy to dodge or play against (SOA, dmg reduction, pwr reduction, or more pills). Kenny with 4stars and 6pwr is very rarely seen in the META Game
But Zatman - a 3 star pain to get past - AND the fact that he is only a 3star makes room for other more powerful cards!
The bottom line is simply that Jackie and Zatman made Uppers the dominant deck hands down in ELO, so a ban needed to be put in place. IF (and I stress if), Kolos and Kenny are so overpowered as some may suggest, then surely you would see Nightmare dominating ELO - but they aren't ever near the top!
yes, I know that, but which one is better? kolos kenny pair or zatman jackie?
people already saying hawk (that has same stat with jackie) is over powered, how about jackie? less one star with -10 opp attack
jackie and zatman is very overpowered that if UR un ban them, uppers will dominate ELO once again
kenny, 6 power and 3 damage. yes, with fury he will make 9 life differences IF he can win the round
it's look like now 6 power is not enough, many good cards that UR release have more that 6 power.
kolos: yes, kolos will be a real nightmare IF you get a bad draw, as long as you get a good draw, I think it's not that hard to stop him
if you said they are overpowered, but why nightmare are not dominating in ELO? why roots and gheist?
nightmare SOB will stop gheist and roots bonus which is an advantage for nightmare, bt why they still use roots and gheist?
Indeed it is true! at this moment 6 power is just not enough.... unless the ability makes up for the lack of power 6 power isn't usable anymore!
roots and gheist are overpowered at the moment! I'm not asking for bans but unless we are using them we can't compete against them! let's face it 8/6 with double stop is insane... it wouldn't make a diferent but them put ratanah and nanook with him and you have 4 8 powered cards... join them with yookie, 2 one star pussycats, yayoi and charlie lvl 4 and you're ready to face almost anything...
with rescue we have the same situation... 7/6 with -2opp power doesn't look that amasing... now join it a soa as bonus and you will have the ability allways readdy to attack! join it with methane and toro and wath will your opponent do if he isn't using gheist??
I believe sooner or later the only way we'll be: or ban this 2 character and see the effect or forbid unleveled characters in ELO! Prehaps the second one would be the fairest but it would cause and huge impact in the game! still I lefts it for condiration!
I love how the argument changes ever few month. When I first started this game rescue where killing everyone and everyone cried for the nerf once they got it here comes uppers. Evenyones was like oh nos zatman he gets slapped in the face with a ban. Now roots and gheist which saw little play is getting love and the crying carry's on. Lets just get it straight there is no way no how the staff can make this game even. Unless they give every card the same ability and bonus and how fun is that.
Also if the roots get bans then anther clan will start dominating then what ask for there strongest card to get the banned?
: Leviatonn is a no-no ban-ban card..
: he is only a 3* with 6 power.. and right now, 2 star cards have 8 power.. XD
: which makes Leviatonn an easy pawn for common cards ( Wanda for PC, Olga for FR, Lehane for ST, Gil for JU ) and a lot more..
: Leviatonn relies only on pill use..
: as I said before..
: each clan has different playstyles..
: Gheist is an "Ability-Based SOA clan" while Roots is a "Power-based SOA clan"..
: same goes with Piranas and Nightmare.. Piranas as the "Power-based" and Nightmare as the "Ability-based"..
: Junkz and Sentinel.. Junkz as "Ability-based" and Sentinel as "Power-based"..
: so come on..
: Fang Pi could be categorized as the "Ability-based" and La Junta is the "Power-based"..
: i could say UR is FARELY balanced right now as they follow different themes on each clan with same bonuses..
: just ENJOY what UR has right now.. im sure they are trying hard to balance the game..
: exceptions are PC, AS, RC, FR..
Wait... didn't we have this discussion in a whole other thread? *sigh*
People will always complain about the top cards/decks that are "dominating" ELO...
I've said it before and I'll more than likely have to say it again.
We shouldn't beg, whine, and complain until UR bans the cards we "can't" deal with.
We need to adjust our play style to adapt to the current meta.
If you're having a problem with Roots / Gheist decks in ELO... Run Ulu Watu / All Stars.
Nanook, Kirk, Gaia, Warren, Eyrton, Marina, Lewis, Ashley
A 25* deck capable of shutting down the best that Gheist and Roots have to offer.
The meta changes... There's a constant change of what most people are using in the tourny modes. If you aren't willing to adjust with it, you have no right to complain about it.
And I don't want to hear anyone say they *Can't* adjust with the meta... There's always a way...
"But.. but... I don't have the Clintz to constantly change!"
Deal with it... Save up some and stock up on cards. I did, that guy over there did... The girl behind him did as well...
"But [Card Name] is too powerful! There's no way around him!"
Yes there is. You just haven't looked hard enough for it.. SOA as a bonus giving you trouble? Get SOB as a bonus. SOB difficult? Run cards that don't count on their abilities to win. There's ALWAYS a way...
"But I don't want to take the time to stock up for 5 different decks... I want Uber-Power!"
You're lazy. Go play something else. Maybe something single-player?
