@Pingerz: I tell this to you every time. Rescue has the strongest bonus in the game. This is why their base stats and abilities are worse than that of other clans.
Why tempt fate with rescue? Please only allow one of elvira and campbell to be legal.
AND BAN LUCY
Fun fact: in chaosdragon's response there are no arguments, it's just a bunch of "we don't think" and "we don't see"... Dear staff if your opinions are not subjective neither are backed up by arguments then why do you bother in the first place to address this subject ?
I saw no arguments for not banning lucy. You just said that "because players complained about 2* in general",something that is wrong because players COMPLAINED when you tried to ban cyb lhia instead of rahi sledon Proof that you are unable to realize which cards are causing problems and you are choosing cards at random. They didn't complain about 2* in general but for Cyb Llhia. And if you knew what you were doing you wouldn't be talking about banning Lehane to weaken mono sentinel but mono based cards like martha and john.
"Rescue are underused" that's a good one and how do you know? You are not playing this game! This is why you are making this subject in the first place and you are asking about the players opinions! It's because you DON'T KNOW which cards are getting overused or not and you don't know which cards need to get banned or not(see cyb lhia - rahi sledon as an example). How can you come to a conclusion when you are based on wronged facts? This is why we end up with faulty results... do you expect the 20% voting participation that takes place every week to fix what you have to fix? Because I am sure it's not happening.
The arno - flora swap -> 50 50 round 1
I agree very much to what AAR is saying, Elvira would change Rescue very much. People just don't realized her significance, because it seemed like every deck always had an SoA. It is also the same how people how liam is almost vital in a mono Skeelz deck...
Although, I think that other than buckler, anita is still a good card, just not as good.
@Falco, yes. Rescue do have the best manipulative bonus in the game but take that away and what will players do? Succumb to every other card in the game with 7 power and SoB? I like spice when it comes to a rapidly changing mode and if Rescue get the buffs liste here they'll still be on a leash with player bans and what not. Campbell and Elvira will go into the fray along with every other card that gets a ban every now and then and I like that. The clans that act as the most potent counters to Rescue (Nightmare, Piranhas) received no bans and may see a spike in play if Rescue gets the buffs listed here. Both of those clans are under-used, do by buffing Rescue, you're indirectly giving some extra incentive for Nightmare and Piranhas players to use those clans. I'm sure staff are thinking about the consequences but I have no problems whatsoever with revitalising a few under-used clans. ELO needs variety and this may be a step in the right direction.
Yes. I can't believe Lucy got off the chopping block either. Stupid, stupid decision.
Please ban cyb lhia and lucy, since they are 50 - 50 causing and OP. Vortex will still have bubblegum and vektor as a direct replacement , and cwing and neole as an indirect replacement. PC have so many good 2*s, not to mention they have Nabrissa.
I support keeping cambell and elvira in the game, just to see how things pan out. Will most likely result in cambell being banned ALOT, however, I do not believe this is any unhealther than leaving kero in regardless.
please stop talking about liam, especially since beck-nena has been released. you've been talking about that card for almost two years...
