Things are perfect with 3 9 powered cards. Just look
There's Only 1 LD with 9 power. (Good)
There's only 1 clan Leader with 9 power (good)
There's only 1 CR with 9 power (good)
So u see it makes them special and its fine with the max being 8 so
UR DONT RELEASE ANYMORE 9 POWERED CARDS!!!
I think everyone is assuming that 9-powered cards will be common (or at least frequent), and I will eat my hat if that's the case.
Boostr has released a total of four base 9-powered cards in the last five months, and none of those releases have been in any clan with attack/power manipulation. In addition to that, none of the cards have been particularly busted-ass broken; in fact, the only one that approaches top tier imo is Dr Van Wesel Ld, who does a whopping 3 damage for the same star count.
Hell, even now only ~15% of the cards in Urban Rivals have base 8 power, and if Boostr continues at the rate with which they're releasing 9-powered cards it will be quite a while before they push everybody else out of the meta (assuming those cards are even playable).
1. Your implying teh meta has agency.
2. Of course it's being "forced", because factors outside of its control are effecting it.
3. What even is your point? How can you say with a straight face that four cards (of dubious quality, I might add) are bending over The Meta against its will and having their way with it? The boat has yet to be rocked by teh 9 power, and at the rate Boostr is handling this it never will.
9 Powered cards are not amazing
Dr Van Wesel Ld - A wall, not much damage. However this card IS amazing, but he is legendary
Pericles - Extremely weak to SOA, competition from Dr copernica who has great synergy and attack manip.
La Bestia - Low basic damage, and competition from marjory, who I would choose anyway
Dounia Cr - Low Damage and great competition
So far none of these have been OP or made shakra and shann unusable....
