@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.
I would rather Elvira remained banned and Campbell stay usable than the other way round. Rescue needed a very solid card in terms of ability to win rounds and creating a bigger life gap since most of their cards are mainly base 6 power and has ability that make them creating lesser damage against SOA cards. Please don't tell me to use stop cards because it isn't worth using some of them in certain weeks. Campbell solves the problem Rescue has without being too OP. On top of that, I'm not the only one who got a high top with Rescue. The result of my playstyle, opponent's play style and cards drew in each game also boils down to the deck I am using - Rescue. Just because they are not popular now, doesn't mean they are not good enough. Ask your guildmate, Falco and oracle and see what he thought about our fight in ELO.
Lola for Clive - 4* defeat cards are tough to fit in your deck. Lola as a 3* is more annoying.
Can Lhia for Rahi Sledon - Rahi Sledon is less of a bluff than Cyb Lhia. Only argument is SOA vs Rahi makes him a standard 6/8 (not too threatening, but annoying with bonus and nuke possibility)) while SOA makes Cyb Lhia an 8/1 (which is pointless for your hand). But if you're not using Gheist or Roots do you really want to relegate your SOA to a 2* card in Round 1?
Ban Mona if you're giving us Oscar back. Oscar + Mona + Spiaghi + Waller is an OP half deck and you just gave Montana a very good Mono deck. Don't let Montana run wild in ELO.
Ban Lehane. Especially with ZRobbie, Westwood, and even Tobbie there
@cyber my guildmates all know i would ban the entire rescue clan to hell if i had the chance . I agree with your assessment of the clan right now and would rather elvira stayed banned and campbell was free.
I also agree with you on PC. I think yayoi will cause more problems than diana.
At 131, I'm agreeing with you. Rescue need a solid 3* and Elvira is the solution. I wrote my previous comment before Campbell was put on the chopping block and I'm pretty unhappy about that. Campbell isn't op nor does he deserve a ban. If this ban goes brought, it won't change a thing. Rescue will still e the same old average clan before this update but I would also rather have Campbell than Elvira.
Anyway, what are you thinking staff?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop doing things this way
Ive said this in the past, I shall say it again
Changing your announcements based on what players are saying AFTER you made the decision --- and saying it is provisional is NOT the way to do things. You guys may think it comes across as a company that listens to the players base.
This is where i believe you are wrong. It comes across as amateurish.
What this shows is if there is enough complaints from the players, you will somewhat change course . What kind of behaviour are you reinforcing???? Guess what you can expect more of in the future???
This is how it unfolded:
Announce >>>> Player base response >>>> Change announcement -- all this in a span of less than 2 days with the changes taking effect in 4 days
this comes across as waffling -- and your willingness to alter course is nothing but 1)an admission you made the wrong decision (which might be ok) 2)a reflection on how much thought you put into the decision
When what you should have done is:
Gather player thoughts on bans >>>>>>>>>>>>> put time and thought on it - lots! >>>>> make the announcement >>>> do not change because you firmly believe that you already put in the thought and gathered the information you needed to stand by you decision.

For the most part, I'm pretty chill with most of the bans and unbans, although one thing that happened since the original list of bans was the added ban of Campbell which I feel is TOTALLY unnecessary.
Rescue is far from what it used to be with the 5 star bans it had in the last round of bans. Bringing Elvira back and keeping Campbell I believe is the right choice, but if anything, keep Cambell and just keep Elvira on the ban list. Rescue will be dead with Campbell out of the game. Kerry is good, but alas still situational while Glosh is losing utility with the dying use of Roots/GHEIST teams.
Just my humble opinion
