I mostly agree with tatsumaki:
Vortex, yes rahi sledon should be banned and cyb lia isnt thaat bad.
Olga cant be unbanned, cause she would destroy the elo at the moment, but bogdan for hindelga ist worth considering..
Romana shouldnt be banned, imo she is as valuable for the clan as tremorh, and haze is already a valuable 5* for junkz.
bringing azel back wouldnt be too good though imo.
Also I am fine with the plunk ban instead of the xingshu ban.
I also think that you shouldnt unban dolly but bristone or rather toro instead, cause toro is a fine replacement, and keeps up the aggressive soa clan, compared to roots which are rather defensive with their lots of reducers...
I am actually quite satisfied with the pussycat changes, except that you should either ban mina or sera m1 cause these cards are way too strong compared to other clans 3 or 5*..
I also think that you shouldnt swap troompah for ongh (reasoning look tatsumaki )
But most importantly I think that you shouldnt unban lear barduh, because the people are even crying for a campbell ban, who has one dmg less, and lear barduh cant be really bothered by reducers or soa cause either way he creates at least a 6 gap unless you have yookie or sth.. especially when sakrohm has enough playable cards, and with murray and ngrath it should keep its weakness against soa..
The not mentioned changes are fine for me
The following exchanges should take place-
marina for robb cr
diana and lucy for muze (dont bring back yayoi cr)
rolph for bristone
hindelga for olga
tuck for ratanah
dr norton for elvira
parmabarb and raskal for ulrich
clive/lola for graven
flora for arno/jeena
jautya or lear barduh
earl and lehane for coby
mona for oscar
ongh for askai (troompah is way too op)
el matador for zapatino
qubik for fuzz
pilzken for isatis
mefisto for azel
and kazayan for zatman can also be tried but highly risky
Olga grudg and bogdan are OP. They make it ridiculously easy to get freaks bonus in. Liona I find is a great card but does not need banning.
Its a problem if freaks become too popular. I'd rather them slightly underpowered or average like rescue.If they become just slightly better they become OP.
On one hand, I'm happy to dust off Dolly Cr and Yayoi Cr for ELO use again (Robb Cr gets enough use in DTs).
On the other hand, the staff is banning ELO-playable cards that can be found in packs and unbanning ELO-playable Crs. Sends a great message to new players.
Honestly, none of the unbans are necessary.
Robb cr: AS still have mulligan karen and randy. Robb is good but AS will be fine without him
Dolly cr: gheist get killed by roots. Dolly doesn't help that
Zapatino: this card is too OP and huracan are fine without him.
Troompah: NOOO! Byron and Nahema can replace Ongh.
Leaders: Ok whatever I don't really care.
Oscar: Why bring back mono montana? Montana is great in half decks right now and is a well balanced clan at the moment.
Yayoi Cr: What is the point of banning diana to bring back this monster? PC can get by with Sera M1 and mina.
Elvira: For the first time in forever rescue is an average clan. Players can reach 1400 (multiple this week) but you don't see rescue in every match. No reason to mess with that by bringing back elvira.
Lear Barduh: Meh I get the swap, but he is just as OP as jautya. Why not admit the mistake and release a 7/5 version of Lear Barduh instead?
Coby: Why try to bring back mono sentinals? Leave him banned and let sentinals users continue with their other 4* cards.
