I can't believe nobody even thought of a sticky tiers thread . Anyway, here's what I think of clans in ELO right now, specifically in a no-random enviroment... Bear in mind this IS A VERY DEBATABLE LIST
Rescue, Montana, Sakrohm, Nightmare
All Stars, Ulu Watu, Bangers, Junkz, Jungo, Fang Pi
Pussycats, Freaks, Sentinel
- Oh right, with that out of the way, let the debate begin
I think you should always look at clans in relation to other clans. The synergy of clans create more options and unpredictability in play as opposed to mono-clan. Looking at clans at mono-deck is no different from looking at it on 1/2 deck as the best cards used in 1/2 deck is normally a subset of cards used in mono-deck. so the premise to look at it on an individual basis is somewhat flawed.
The positions of these clans is never static. As new cards are released, a fallen clan may just rise and be on par with whatever is on S-Tier or A-Tier right now so I do not see much point in this debate really.
This is indeed a very debatable and contestable list down to the minute details. If it didn't go as well as expected, at least you provoked some valuable feedback.
Um, yeah, I think we can see that this list hasn't had too much research and tbh just basing off mono clans is a very peculiar way to go.
Even if it is mono, Uppers after the banning of Zatman have to be just about bottom of the heap, gheist have slipped off their top spot, sentinel and all stars ride very strongly indeed and I think we'll see a steady climb for the jungo with the latest release. Pussycats also should never be relegated to the bottom of the heap :/
I don't think you can even begin to gather the ELO strengths with any great accuracy without looking at 1300+
But as has been said the clans rise and fall with each new release making a constant stickied list of this rather misleading and ultimately futile in the long run.
Pussycats should never reach the bottom tier, they're always present, and always mixed with something else.
I remember the time when the Roots powerhouses Ratanah and Shakra were cheaper together than a Mona. Also, I bought my Striker originally for 3250 clintz. How times fly.
Jungos have more potential, with the most powerful poison, annoying life gainers, and those pesky stop abilities they can give any deck a hassle, Pussycats should also be in the top tier being able to form a 9-star deck that still kills leaving 16 stars to be filled.
ELO Clan Tiers are constantly changing with new cards / clans being released. For example, just a few weeks ago, the resounding answer would've been GHEIST and Roots as the top ELO clans, now Jungo has upset that order and GHEIST is falling off a bit due to their lower power cards (Roots still have quite a few high power cards).
There are only a few clans you don't really see in ELO right now and they are : Ulu Watu and Fang Pi Clang.
- Ulu Watu has had their best cards ELO banned and the remaining cards just don't match up too well with other clans, especially their counterparts in Bangers who have superior cards for ELO (in my opinion) hence why almost every player would choose Bangers for their deck over Ulu Watu
- Fang Pi Clang has numerous problems in ELO, specifically too low in power. Only one card that is a non-CR has 8 power and the 7 power cards tend to have lower damage amounts. The higher damage cards have inferior power. Add to the fact that they just look completely outclassed by La Junta and you can pretty much see why they are never chosen.
- You'll occassionally see a Uppers player but they too have fallen down in power quite a bit as well. Their bonus is still one of the better ones in the game, but they need some better cards, especially with Zatman being ELO banned.
Finally, how do you put Rescue at the bottom of a mono clan tier list??? They pretty much are THE mono clan list with tons of "support :" abilities and their support bonus.
But stop abilities now open up the possibility of "Dead Draws" in UR thats why I don't think Jungo are all that amazing, YES I know they got that damn 13 life gap st00pid snake and annoying as hell leader
I will admit the list wasn't researched as well as it should have , but more on my own experiences with UR over the last year.... so sue me
