Here is the list of next week (09/08 week) banned characters in ELO:
It seems that Jessie, Bristone and Sigma are out.
Jessie being back can possibly revive the All-stars half, with Randy, Stacy and Kang/Loma Noju, seeing as a vast majority of players are foregoing SOA and going for brute pow/dmg ratios.
Bristone is nothing without anybody to support. Wardom is still pretty iffy, and without Leviatonn mono-gheist is out of the picture although Draheera does present a strong argument for playing it regardless.
And with Sigma back, the low-star Sakrohm half is back with a vengeance.
