I really don't agree with Rolph going and Dolly coming back. You're trading Gheists only solid card for a card that gets owned by Roots and only really creates annoying pill situations? Gheist can barely stand as it is and you're taking the only reason to ever use them away?
What's the half deck going to be now Methane/Dolly Cr/ Leviatonn/2*?
It really doesn't look that great
I think people are forgetting how f****** annoying Rescue was in the past, I don't know why everyone wants to see them used every week as the most overused and abused clan...come on guys let's just leave them nerfed
Flora for Arno is actually bad for Roots. Flora gave them a counter to those 2/3* walls like Plunk/Zrobbie/Lehane/Flanagan that they now have no counter to (You'll be guessing pill wise and be forced to play a better card like Tuck or Curlix against them), hopefully this will curb them a bit and allow gheist some playtime? Probably not but fingers crossed!
Last one: Yayoi Cr....really? lel
HAHAHA @AAR on point
Sorry need to emphasize again:
Sentinel: Ban Earl + Lehane, probably bring back sammy (honestly she makes no difference). For God's sake, as a growth card, earl is viable on round 1, and by round 3 he is already a monster.
Nightmare: Give Karrion back, he never really dominated, and nightmare is kind of boring now despite kenny cr and cutey.
+1000 to 182 (sorry oracle, i disagree with almost all your suggestions )
I don't understand the rescue love. There are plenty of players making 1300+ with rescue as has been pointed out by cyber and others. Why does rescue need to be stronger then? Do you only have rescue cards and want them to be OP as possible?
@Chaos: Unbanning clover noel would be terrible. She is worse than clover in elo where many cards have low base damage. I would prefer PC only saw lucy and leela banned with no unbans. I am ok with the diana/yayoi cr swap but don't think it helps.
Every ban that prevents old, double old, 50-50 is a good ban. I thought maybe the staff should not ask "us" if they WANT to change, but that's just my opinion.
About the modifications on DT: SWEET although players will still perfectly play with -4 points' decks!
My thoughts on the bans:
All Stars: Marina - For Robb cr's return this seems like a fair exchange.
Berzerk: Clive - Very good idea. Clive was a Berzerk card that made nearly every battle result in 50/50s. Berzerk are still strong and for defeat options they have Lola and they have Konrad and Elvis as other 4 stars.
GHEIST: Rolph - This really depends on the unbans. Ghiest are already rarely played in elo compared to Roots. I think to make the exchange fair Bristone must return. This way GHEIST have a strong DR.
Jungo: Ongh - I think this ban is good also as ongh was very strong. There are new alternatives like Byron and Nahema. But I'd consider maybe giving Buba back for those that like mono Jungo.
Pussycats: Lucy, Diana, Sera M1 - I agree with these bans. Players can make a half deck of Yayoi Cr, Mina, Nabrissa and a Pussycat 5 star/Malicia which is a really strong half.
Rescue: Campbell - I disagree with this ban hugely. I think that Campbell should remain unbanned and Elvira should remain banned.
Roots: Flora - For the arno exchange OK.
Sakrohm: Jautya - Very good idea although Lear Barduh is a bit too strong. I'd consider maybe a Uranus return.
Skeelz: Plunk - That's OK as banning xingshu might've killed skeelz.
Vortex: Rahi Sledon - A good ban as he was very OP
Ulrich ban in exchange of Parmabarb and Scubb.
Bring back Zatman for a 3* Uppers card.
Ban Xingshu and therefore unban Caelus Cr! He is weak against DR and protection Power cards. Also there are cards now with 9 power base stats. He is like Robb Cr and look, you wanna unban him. So change Xingshu with Caelus Cr!
Forget Plunk! If you want to ban Skeelz why not take a look at Dr Falkenstein and Sasha? + or - 16 attack?! Paired with Beck Nena that's pretty difficult to do anything against..If UR is so against Mono take a look at those 2 cards maybe? I get it Skeelz only have their ability but how can someone playing Freaks deal with that?
