We've already told you that we were going to see how things would be going with the secret voting system about possible changes in ELO mode. And that's exactly what we’ve done.
Firstly, we’ve decided to leave the voting system as it is. It works well and should work even better in the future with characters banned thanks to votes.
We've checked voting results and the most frequently played characters in ELO stats.
We've decided to permanently ban 5 characters: Kolos, Marco, Zatman, Hawk and Ratanah.
Kolos is permanently banned because it was obvious that you did not want him in ELO any more. He’s been banned nearly every weeks since the voting system release and we thought it was pointless to keep on using your votes against him.
Marco, Zatman, Hawk and Ratanah have also been frequently banned by your votes so we thought that these permanent bans would offer a fairer game.
Admittedly Ratanah was banned less often than Shakra but we calculated that her ban would greatly help in reducing the Roots' dominance while still making them playable. Whereas Shakra’s ban would have left the Roots with very strong chances of building powerful half-decks for a reasonable amount of stars.
We didn’t want to ban any All Stars or Piranas (Smokey or Striker, for example) even if they were concentrating a large part of votes. We figured out you would be more free to vote and decide by yourselves which characters need to be remove from ELO.
Have fun !
No way...cards shouldnt be based off of their singular abilities...it should without a doubt be based on the rest of their clan...abilities are based on the bonus...if your bonus is weak like the freaks and skeelz you have a strong abilitiy and vise versa with clans like ulu watu..bad abilities in the less than 5 stars but great bonus..piranas..have nothing to boost them up in their bonus so they have the pill manipulating abilities to get eye level with the clans abilities they stop the bonus of...kolos has SOB so hes banned..rightfully so...lost hog and dacote need their bonuses to get the 1hit ko and also cant get rid of powerful bonuses....therefor they are free..and if you are saying dont base it off of the rest of the clan why are you complaining about only copper and not erpeto....hes a 9/7..louise another 9/7...not to mention more solid 9 powers..and why is ghumbo always banned and not askai and eve..better attack manipulators with the same amount of power..ill answer why..its because of their bonus that THE REST OF THEIR CLAN GIVES THEM ...so banning cards based on the card itself rather than its potential with a team in a game that relys on a team of the same clan members is rediculous
This is personal opinion but i dont think people are scared of copper and caelus as much as people are scared of facing a potential 1 damage hand.caelus isnt as scary as people put him out to be.the all starz make him look ridiculous,the bangers and ulu watu harass him to death,cards like platinum and spycee batter him by sheer force,the rescues shred him,uranus graks demolish him,and despite the uppers not being as great as they once were,i wouldnt be surprised to see the occssional frankie hi cut into him rather quickly.oh and of course rowdy and most other sentinels crush caelus.as for copper his ban is somewhat justified as people can just put him with piranas to make up for the sentinels just crappy supporting cast,but in this day and age it's GHEIST/All Star/Sakhrohm ground.that means platinum,striker,alexei,uranus and na boh in no particular order.if copper's ban is justified so should reine cr's.shes basicaly copper with one more power in a better support clan.and disregard its price tag.
Yes I enjoy being in the Space Junkie fan club all alone with a huge sign saying UNBAN GRAKS and people telling me how bad of an idea it is....
No I don't mind this thread but maybe reconsidering some of the previous bans and banning some that aren't. As I said, I am in the Space Junkie fan club with a huge sign saying...
Actually, Lil_Fro, I was posting in this thread myself before.
So, if you are just here to make random comments like that, and that's how it looks like tbh, then you should be the one following another thread.
Also, this... discussion... is leading nowhere and no one is going turn away from their own opinion. That's why I said what I said earlier. The only thing that can happen is just another flame war over opinions. And since I know that I'm pretty good at that myself, I just stop here, even though I could argue for a long time if I really wanted to. But there is just no point in discussing this particular topic anymore.
And if Traxxxion wants to come after me like that, fine, let him. He's taking every shot at me that he gets anyways, so I'm used to it by now.
