All Stars: Saki ban is the most necessary since a long time // Marina or Striker i don't care about that, the essential point is just that one of those is kept in chains // please don't bring back robb cr! after saki is gone the all stars finally get a serious and highly needed push back, but with robb cr returning they would just get as strong again, he is simply a killer for all clans without attackmani
Sakrohm: i don't really care about Lear Barduh, but if you don't bring him back please don't take out Jautya , you just weaken the clan to a point to where it's not worth playing him anymore.
La Junta: Isatis or Pilzken -- as a dedicated mono la junta player i let others speak, but i can see that a ban for one of those cards is necessary.
Huracan: surely no need to unban El Divino, but if you take away el gascaro you seriously need to bring back another card. i would prefer kinichaw, but at least zapatino is a must then, otherwise the huracan are broken.
Rescue: Dr Norton - absolutely right decision. in combination with the bonus awfully OP.
Jungo: ongh or askai, i don't care as long as one of them is free. buba though doesn't make any sense. jungo mono are not equally strong than other mono clans, with buba gone they basically do not exist anymore as a mono clan.
FPC: come on guys, it's obvious that weekly hate voted kero has to go, and not good old zhu tang.
Pussycats: when sera m1 is gone you should not make too many other adjustments to weaken the clan.
Is this seriously happening? One card getting unbanned with up to 7 being banned? Talk about bad ratios. Unban Dolly. GHEIST have an absolutely shite 3* pool (Levi is cool but 6 power sucks). Nothing has been said about Xingshu, someone got an elo top with her in the week of her release - that card is too powerful. If Lear Barduh isn't coming back then leave Jautya unbanned. Sakrohm only see play when Jautya is unbanned, so why ban him? Bring Lear back, he encourages tactical play instead of just being able to deadpill until you have a chance to fury-bomb with Jautya and win the game in a round. I'd much rather let Sakrohm be prominent in elo than have Jautya banned, though. Equal rights for all clans! lol.
El Gascaro doesn't deserve a ban, Zhu Tang doesn't deserve a ban and Buba doesn't deserve a ban. Come on staff.
All Star: only Saki for Robb Cr? fine go ahead
FPC: Zhu Tang 8 pow 8 or 12 life gap w/ fury but has a lot of problem: no atk manip, life gap decrease against SOB or SOA or DR. One thing makes him good is that he is only 3* so can fit in most deck. If you ban Zhu Tang plz ban Jautya too.
La Junta: dont they have too many good support card: Sabia ,Isatis, Pilzken, Raven, Thormund when UR doesnt want mono deck? I want at least 2 cards go like Isatis and Sabia.
Jungo: why Buba while i saw Jean in every Jungo deck? 8/3 SOA 2* can pass any DR(even PCs coz of Jungo bonus
Rescue: Dr Norton 0 pillz can make many cards 3 pillz to beat him but 2 dmg doesnt harm much. Sue is better IMO 1 more dmg and if opp win still get dmg reduced by 1. What is annoying with Rescue is their small star DR : Steve or Slyde Cr plz (since they also have Cleo)
Riots: I guess as they are pretty new they shouldnt be banned but I hate 9/8 Pericles
Huracan: Yay finally.
Pussycats: Same problem with Jungo. Every deck have Lucy and Nabrissa which make room for good 5* and 4* of their own or other half deck.
Pretty much everyone agrees riots are too strong right now, can we please ban them.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
TAKE MORE TIME TO REVIEW THIS!!!
this list looks as if it was made over night. Can we please take a look at the top 100 players decks ONLY? since that is the current "meta". We dont care about the 50 most played cards. Noobs will play any card, how is that relevant?
Please ban Nabrissa or Lucy or both. Ban Ongh and Buba (both). Ban Istasis.
Zhu Thang does NOT need a ban... seriously i dont even see the point of playing FPC over mono junta, unless you have Kerrozin CR. Kusuri is a good card, and Zhu Thang is a DECENT card. But they are seriously outgunned by Lajunta. They have a niche since they have good life manipulation, which goes well with huracan. But the ban of el gascaro WILL effect fang pi clan.
Having Campbell but banning lear barduh is stupid. Just ban both or ban neither.
Also, don't ban saki over Marina. Marina is a far greater threat. She is honestly one of the hardest cards to play against in the entire game.
I personally want to see Daddy Jones brought back.
El Gascaro deserves his ban. It isn't about how strong he is. It's about how he allows players to dictate pillz useage.
Will they pill some and I eat 6 damage for nothing or not at all? If I pill high enough, will my remaining pillz and dent in my opp life be enough to win?
Dr Norton is an enforcer of Olding and, for similar reasons as El Gascaro, deserves his ban. Banning Campbell will do nothing to weaken rescue. He either wins and earns healing or he doesn't. You want to know what kills him? Life Manip.
Isatis deserves her ban. La Junta is better at support than Rescue at this point. Unlike Rescue, the junta can easily 2hit win! Pilzkin will moderate star distribution at least. Isatis leaves room for two more 4*. Arnie and Bryan or Brianna.
Jautya dies against SoA. His whole clan dies against SoA. He's a good reason to play Gheist and Roots! And people can't always afford to sit back and wait to throw him out there. His absence means the death of Sakrohm in elo, loss of the interest of players who enjoy sakrohm, and another reason among dozens why not to use SoA clans.
Jautya deserves to stay.
