Rescue is worse than Uppers and Junkz for ELO. Uppers hit hard and have one of the most threatening 2HKO. Junkz have fantastic abilities and pill manipulation.
Even though Sak is crushed by SOA, they have some of the most amazing abilities in ELO like Uranus, Sigma and Murray.
Rescue have subpar abilities on 7 power characters (Krash, Aurora, Sledg) and average abilities on 6 power characters (Kerry, Cliff, Glosh, Lea).
Anita and Elvira are their only 2 standouts. Even Anita is problematic because she and Kerry conflict over Courage. That makes Kerry extremely overrated- Kerry can't be used effectively in the same hand with Anita.
They are also prone to draw hands with poor damage.
On the plus side, their bonus puts a lot of pressure on the opposing player because against Rescue and Montana it's fatal to waste pills. But better players learn not to waste pills.
