We have been discussing the updates to ELO and DT. This time, we have decided to divide the live testing into two phases. This week, we will only discuss the new DT penalty list. Next week, we will discuss ELO bans. Please feel free to write your feedback regarding the proposed list.
The list of penalty bearing characters in DT will be updated on Monday 22/01/2016
This list may be subject to amendment until Friday 22th.
Here is a provisional list of characters who will be penalized in the DTs:
DJ Korr Cr
Lyse Teria Cr
(NEW) Clover Noel
(NEW) Kalindra Cr
Dr Norton Cr
Retired from the list:
Also, a new rule for the points calculation in DT is added:
Bonus points if you win round 4: 3
Bonus points if you play round 4: 1
Few bonus points will be awarded in case of opponent timeout.

As I have said on numerous occasions the highest band is pointless having a penalty on so you should ban them.
25 points is about as much as you get for a win so you negate all your points by using it, making it pointless.
There are three types of people that use these cards
1) Trolls. These make up a large portion of the people using the cards. Basically they don't give a shit about their score and are just trying to ruin peoples DT by running 40* decks with ambre kolos etc.
2) The don't give a shits. These people use whatever deck they want but don't bother with completing the DT or just want to have a bit go fun without trying to get lots of points.
3) The noob. These people don't understand that using these cards is having a bad effect on their performance so they get less points and don't succeed in the game.
The penalties should be abolished because why would you try to cater for number 1. That person is doing it to make other peoples' experience worse. 2 doesnt really care so probably wouldn't mind that much or could play in classic or a different mode because they aren't actually trying to play DT. And 3 is a getting a negative experience from it as they don't understand why they are doing badly and could be having more fun and doing better if they actually understand how the points system worked (hidden deep in rules page which isn't that easy to find) and what they are doing wrong
Bring back the old penalty list,PLEASE! Or at least make Group B -5 and Group C -3,-1 IS NOTHING! Zatman,Gil,Lehane (who is not even in the list) Draheera Beeboy Martha Phoebe are basically without a penalty.I don't like this at all
I dont know.. i like this one better thn the last lajunta dominated mode.
yes, -1 is almost nothing but -15 to -25 in total in a dt. but imagine if u play 2 such cards together?
can be -50 from total.. so probably u would play only 1 such card to which there isnt a big issue that i can see
