All defeat cards render Norton obsolete anyway. I don't understand why (in the world) you're complaining about him. Kerry and Dr.Norton will often be player banned like they are now. Doesn't every clan have at least 1 powerful card that sees a player ban every now and then? Who would use Rescue with those two essentials banned. It's really not a big deal.
I find that insulting. As a Pussycat player, you have Cherry, who is excellent at walling in halves and doesn't completely rely on bonus, Jayzel (Pussycat's only SOA in a half with Riots she's so deadly), and Samia (mono only but still an option if you would like to go that route). All of which could be viable. They have an excellent 2* pool, bad four star pool (unless Malicia in a Frozn, Riots, or Vortex half, but Mercury is generally for the halves you don't use Malicia, and Diana is permabanned by players), and an excellent 5* pool. Don't act like we need 3*s to come back, because I like my Kitties and I don't want to trade for Diana, a staple when not banned.
I'll list my opinion even if it's a bit late:thumbsup
I think the changes are great except for clover noel , but here are a list of few more exchanges which would balance things out
Ongh goes troompah comes back in
Dr.norton goes and sledg comes back
Clover Noel comes back and Lucy goes
and that should balance things out
Troompah is banned on general principle; if a card comes out with more +attack than the Rescue bonus and more than 7-8 damage/total lifegap they get a ban. See also Sammy, Emeth Cr, El Divino
I can understand Sledg's ban, as SOB is one of the few things that can keep Rescue in check and Sledg laughs at your sad attempts to stop him.
