I think a 8/3 or 8/4 support +1 damage 4* would be ok. The problem with xingshu is the splash capability.
I think there should be an actual T1 mode on a side note. Cards like saki never see any play because they aren't good enough for T2, are banned in elo and penalised in tourney.
Ive got to ask but why is spike not being penalised?
The way you are banning cards is kind of pointless. After every ban session new clans become dominant. The best solution to this surely is to buff the weaker clans so that most of the clans are viable and of a similar power? Obviously at times banning will be needed because a major unbalance may occur like the time of sentinel domination of a while ago.
The most OP cards would need to be banned (-10 OP jackie cr ambre guru cr etc) but I think that would be a better solution.
If you don't do this though please ban the -5 and -10 cards
No......it doesn't matter that there are a few cards that can beat him because if you're not using all stars there's still always going to be a round that you can slip him in pretty much for free. Assuming the Caelus Cr player leads you still have to have 3 Caelus Cr counters in hand to guarantee he isn't a huge threat. That's dumb.
