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
This is indeed a very good decision the UR staff made. Lyse Teria Cr is pretty much unbeatable when fighting pill for pill and w/ that SOA matched w/ their bonus, you would pretty much won't want to mess w/ this card anytime. As for Zatman, he really deserves it, and I'm pretty sad about that becasue I'm an Uppers user , but it would really make the game more ELOish than before and for Alec, I really dont know because I never used Rescue anytime. And the unbanning of Wanda and Baby Q is interesting because I played this game after they were banned and I don't think they deserve it and now, I will know if they really deserve the ban or not. Bangers and Pussycats will probably rule ELO next week.
Majority of people to the banning of Lyse Teria Cr, Zatman and Alec, but it was a big mistake to unban Wanda, Because she can be used as a lv1 as Air-gear said.. the unbanning of Baby Q is also right because a lot of cards can counter her anyway.. but as for wanda it's really hard since you are going to throw the battle to her often...
Well, im sad about Zatman's banning... but i guess this will make ELO more "mass-friendly".
without Jackie and Zatman, Upper's reign may finally end in ELO (unless they provide a good substitute.. a wall with SOB perhaps :smirk hahaha
rescue may also finally see it's end with Marco's and Alec's banning. When you think about it, Alec is like Rescue's Zatman (@minimum). No more "lucky" 8 damage for Rescue. the only heavy hitter left are Ghoub and Kerry. Hax might also finally be given his chance to fight for Rescue in ELO. im just glad other clans will be given a fighting chance during "Rescue weeks".
Now Lyse Teria... im sort of feel ambivalent with her loss. Surely, noone can trully replace her in a good Montana-based deck. Sure, Enzo has the same power as her, but what made Lyse so great is her 8 power @ 3 stars. im sure most players will rejoice with her banning, but im more sure that the pro players will quickly find other means of winning ELO.
I used uppers a lot, i dont disagree a bit with zatman´s ban. the dude owned most cards. sooner or later, replacements will arrive. other clans were put aside from ELO due to bans. maybe it´s time for players to get back 2 them. as for the pcatz, well, they might have got a bigger push than deserved...but they are soooooooo sweet to the eyes...
i supose the likes of sakrhom will be seen more often in ELO, eventhough they are still lacking some good SOA/SOB card.
as for Lyse, someone just said it: she was the UR Holy Grail! but there are many other Cr´s worth playing for!
