@Kuro Reaper: Yes, they they are deffinitely good players if they're 1300 but that's not exactly why I was losing to them (and I'm not even saying I'm losing to THEM). The problem with Rescue always present in the 1300 is the following: if it's not Rescue week, your deck can be adjusted to having a higher chance to win against Rescue or whatever that weeks meta is. If I have a deck which reaches 1300 in a series of straight-ish wins, and I've had such, it's ussually because my guildmates and me managed to crack the metagame and figure out the most favourable deck for the week. But since it's rarely Rescue week, that deck can have serious trouble with Rescue.
So in the 1300 you have to win a lot more than you lose, and most often I can either be favoured against Rescue or be favoured against other things. It takes 3-4 straight wins to make up for a single loss, so this can easily screw you over every week.
Kefalo they are simply not ALWAYS Rescue in the 1300 tier. If anything, judging by my experiences, it's a rare occurrence to see them past 1200. They are NOT the opposite of under-powered and they are most certainly NOT viable in all weeks regardless of bans. I think you need to rethink your statements and maybe even try Rescue for yourself.
And Saga, SOB and even SOA at times destroy Huracan. They are by no means an OP clan.
@Pingerz and Troll I'm talking about before they gave the bans to Huracan. There was literally no counter. The only way to reduce their strength was by banning some of their cards in elo. The same has to be done with rescue because if you unban lea/sledg you are giving rescue a way to counter their weakness clan.
I said in my own experiences Famous Falco LOL, read properly. And Saga, if you're talking about Huracan post ELO bans then it is completely irrelevant to be even talking about about them now seeing as you stated "There WAS literally no counter". Rescue are perfectly counter-able. And Kefalo, maybe you're losing to them because they're generally the better player? Don't hate the game folks, hate the players.
Pingerz @ But the aim of you and plenty others is to make rescue OP and playable for bad players even though that isn't necessary. The fact that Elvira was even considered an unban makes it ridiculous.
Rescue are a perfectly playable clan in elo
They have the strongest 2 stars in the game (Dr Norton Sue and Steve)
They have a great 3 star movepool to choose from (Buckler,Anita,Slyde cr, Tina)
Then they have some strong 4 stars (Kerry, Campbell)
Then the 5 stars are insanely good and can create huge life gaps or create easy round wins (Aurora Pastor, Reeve)
You can make a 2-2-2 (with steve dr norton and sue) and still have 19 stars left for 6 characters. that can be split with 2 3 stars and then a strong 5 star with 2 4 stars
You can also make a 2-2-2-3-3-3 with aurora and reeve at the end.
Now tell me how are Rescue a bad or disadvantaged clan in elo? In most cases it's the problem of the player and not the deck.
