Just ban saki, and campbell and maybe norton (ban both and bring back elvira or lea?) ongh needs to go he has replacements but banning jean would do nothing minus taking away an soa and psylo exists and jungo's 2* are like godly i want to harm them lel umm so as a kitty main, i love diana, but i am questioning her place in elo. maybe take her out, but deff bring back clover (most likely) or muze (not so likely)
Wait, did you just say it's okay to get rid of Jean because Psylo exists? That's like saying it's okay to get rid of Lehane because you can replace her with Josh.
Also Muze is banned on principle (having a poison better than the Freaks).
Quasichoco exists so why shouldn't Muze, and lemme ask u this: If Jayzel is a conditional SOA. And Yayoi the only other SOA in Kitties is banned. Why shouldn't Jean have to be replaced by Psylo, or why should an SOA be used in their clan?
Because Muze is intended as the venomous tip of a spear to stab your opponent with and wait for them to die, and Quasi is intended as the shield you hide behind after the opponent is already poisoned (sans tactical play, but that's a chapter of it's own).
Quasichoco is unbanned because his poison is not better than the Freaks. Look at every Elo-banned poisoner and tell me what they have in common; then you'll know why Muze is banned.
The reason Jean is a staple is because he is very, very efficient. The reason Psylo will never be used is because she is very, very inefficient. Jean trims the metaphorical fat by exchanging damage for power, as you don't use him to hit, whereas Psylo has the stats of a 3* while costing four. Why would you use an SOA that is twice the stars and is worse at walling?
Please think wisely on which cards you're going to ban in the next session of elo Bans.
Elo is getting ridiculous, trust me... i have been playing Elo for years and i actually never thought i would say this but i prefer to play Daily Tournament than Elo now!
This is insane , the meta is just horrible, Elo isn't as good as it was before .. i mean now in 5 matches , 4 of them are against defeat cards like Lola, Clive,Leela... etc.
I have already lost matches by losing only a single round in all 4... wasn't elo supposed to be the most most strategic mode of urban rivals?
That's quite sad.. i'm not asking for a complete change though, but please start making some changes .. you guys are killing a mode that was quite interesting a long time ago
^well if you think about it, either they got a really lucky hand, or if you a really really low damage deck. Or it could be both.
Chances are, you were probably just unlucky, and ELO is strategic as always. Leela takes up 5 stars, and defeat isn't the most useful on a 5*. Clive can't bypass that low minimum, and DR is scarce in berzerk. Lola is quite strong, but fairly predictable too.
If u are thinking alves's perception is wrong, there is something wrong with yours
i can agree about Leela with you to some extend, though its quite irritating to play against it.
Lola,Clive is a different story.. min1 isnt low..
plus u cant always predict it ... NO ONE PLAYS LOLA IN COURAGE Usually -_-
suppose your hand Lehane Jackson Flanagan Romana
mine: Lola, Clive, Leela, Diana
and i start with Clive,,,,, can u predict it???
or in r2 what card will you play against my hand???
@People who doesnt still understand what are 50-50 decks/forcinng 50-50
This is what that is...
