Robb cr = Loocio?
Lol,kids nowadays. Hes safe to be brought back nowadays because the power meta is slowly increasing to 8/9 which means he wont have nearly as much of an advantage as he did at 7/8 power meta.
He'll end up getting probably 5 % vote weekly anyway,but thats because the last elo season bans consisted of SOA and power reducers.
Ban list looks fine for the most part,ditto for the unbans also.Elvira unban is welcome but unnecessary.
I never understood the big deal with banning her to begin with anyway-she was just otakool with +4 attack that got put on a pedestal due to the low power meta the rescues had and being one of the only SOAs in the clan.
That said,id like to see bonnie ld unbanned.Shes really just a glorified vortex with SOB;it'd be smart to ban something like scubb to be safe,but she'd be good to see back in play.
Okay if Campbell is really going to be gone can you at least free Lea with Elvira? Seriously Lea might be the most undeserved permaban in the game, obviously Rescue's bonus is amazing but 6 power is still not extreme and she's only 2 damage, plus Rescue obviously needs to be played mono so the volume of bans (especially 2*s like Lea and Dr Norton) really hampers versatility
They're tradeoffs. Most heavy power manipulation means lower base power, so attack manipulation hurts more while higher power makes attack manip almost meaningless. However lowering your opponent's power betters the ratio in your favor as compared to raising your own.
Math is complicated; fuck around with numbers on your own.
Previously, I stated that I believe that Campbell and Elvira should be allowed to stay unbanned which I still stand by, but if anything, keep things how they are. I think most people would agree Rescue isn't overpowered currently, taking Campbell out for Elvira will weaken them in my opinion. Campbell is the only solid 7 power Rescue 4 star currently (Suzie is so bad against SOA and Scott Ld is an overall joke of a 4 star)
Elvira's a nice card, don't get me wrong, but I don't think Rescue need her as much as they need Campbell right now, if you won't let them both stay, then keep Campbell in, that'll keep Rescue at a reasonable power level.
