Why bring back Elvira just to ban Campbell? Who else does Rescue have at 4* other than Kerry? Glosh is okay but very situational...doesn't make sense to add more bans to Rescue (or Roots for that matter, both clans are so disproportionately banned with cards that don't deserve it)
Please god remove cyb lhia over rahi seldon. or just remove both of them.
What about olga?
I really don't see the need to ban cambell.
The original list was much better than this.
still, this list is an improvement since the last banning phase, which was laughably bad.
Gotta say, the updated list is a huge improvement over the last. Sera M1 and Rahi Sledon are the true scourges of their clans. Would like to see Jeena, Bristone and a Freaks on the unban list, but beggars can't be choosers.
Marina instead of Striker is an odd trade-off, and feels more influenced by game politics than common sense. Keep Marina free, relegate SOA duties to Alexei an- Oh, wait, Rb. Right. Can't staff-ban that.
I seldom plays Elo, but I guess the unban of Yayoi Cr doesn't make sense...
Anyway, I will focus on DT penalties.
Oxen: Doesn't deserve penalty due to the high min and limited to SOA. (Maybe Kazayan?)
Tasty Tast: Unnecessary.Blaaster Cr deserves the penalty more than him. Love to see Shann penalized though.
Milena: Unnecessary. Shecan create 1hko oppurtunities with Pilzken and Isatis. The main issue is Pilzken imo. Pilzken doesn't need Milena to work great. Combo of Scooty and Pilzken works great as well. Pilzken should be penalized instead. Moreover Isatis is not that hard to be dealt with.
Nellie and Zatman should switch their places. Zatman is a guarenteed 4 damage... Nellie could be easily dealt with SOA or SOB.
Penalty on Spiaghi is quite weird though. I hate facing him but Oscar and Mona should be the cards that need penalty.
Other than that, the penalties on Gil, Saki and Coby quite make sense.
I fail to see why players don't realize Rescue is required to be played in mono so players need to let it have more than the same 4 ELO staples it has had for 4 years in order for it to be competitive....oh wait, I forgot the "experts" just don't feel like doing math on the low-power + damage, high-attack clan so they just bicker about it.
My bad guys, forgot yall were like that...
@103, that isn't proof. That's the result of your playstyle, your opponents playstyle and the cards you drew in each game.
Having said that, Rescue are perfectly average right now. All they really have going for them is Campbell and when was banned, Rescue just pick up dust in players collections. I'm all for the Elvira unban.
