Hello Urban Rivals players,
In order to create a more precisely balanced metagame in ELO mode, from now on, we are going to change the ELO ban list every month.
The changes listed below will be implemented immediately. However, we encourage you to write your comments and suggestions about them in this topic. The ban list for next month will be heavily influenced by player input from this topic. This method of refining the ban list will continue on a monthly basis.
Added to the Ban List:
Removed from the Ban List:
We want to remind you that, in exceptional cases of very powerful cards, we can add that card to the ELO ban list at any time.
Also, join in the Leader Wars, starting today at 14.00 (GMT+1) and ending thursday at 23.59 (GMT+1)!
Start phase 1: 02/05 - 14.00 GMT +1
End phase 1: 04/05 - 11.00 GMT +1
Start phase 2: 04/05 12.00 GMT +1
End phase 2: 05/05 23.59 GMT +1

Striker: Its better eyrik be banned and striker stay off.
Joy: Her ban Makes sense. She is pretty broke.
BlaasterCr: I feel like it should be one or the other as far as him and Joy, The only thing that could warrant a ban like that is if new support is coming to the clan
Lola: No reason whatsoever to ban her...
Antionette: The clan is dead and has been dead for yearrrrrrrs, If youre seriously banning one of their few useable elo cards I want bogdan off the list. I dont even play them much but a deck shouldnt be so bad its nearly unplayable. Antionette didnt even make the deck popular, she wasnt an instant win... She was extremely good...But looking around at other clans just freaks having their bonus as it is need broken base stats or abilitys to make up for the worthless bonus.
Arturo: I dont think the clan is a problem so this also doesnt make sense to me. Its ability is great...But its not a fairbanks or a spyke, Not elo ban worthy
Tormentah: I wish it could be unbanned but it is just too strong I defend it still only because frozen have no bonus 2 rounds usually, they can be predictable..But tormentah is a crazy 2 star....making it 7/1 mightve helped a little but the swing is too strong for a 2.
Lowki: Id rather have him off unless they get decent replacements. Hes not a huge problem imo but I understand the ban.
Dolly Cr:.....What did dolly do.....They have a new 2 star hachi with growth poison nearly indentical and sometimes better and a star less..Why...
Quite a few people are commenting on the Caelus vs Oshitsune thing. Caelus Cr is a Skeelz card, which means that despite his incredible round-winning power, his bonus is not going to be relevant in as many situations as Oshitsune. Caelus suffers against attack manipulators and All Stars, and has one more star than Oshitsune does. It's possible that the inclusion of Caelus will encourage a more dynamic meta, with more players running attack manip clans to counter him, while others will try Raptors or SoB clans, who can hold their own against a Skeelz deck with the right cards, while countering attack manip clans handily as well. And of course, it's important to remember that the stats of the most played clans will be closely monitored, and inform decisions regarding bans and unbans for next month.
Ongh is tge only sensible unabn among eyirck rahi caelus ongh set...
Its similar to kero and u can easily counter it'-'
Are u trying to tell that no othr powerful 5* Like ongh exist now?
Not saying tgese cards deserve ban as well..just saying that ongh is no dofferent.. Thats what 5*s are supposed to be like..
They should be worthy of 5 stars
El mariachi: The clan is already crippled. They dont even have a solid damage reducer for a clan that relies on having life, why ban out one of the few useable cards in a half deck. Hes not op...Hes good. If he was 7 power then yeah ban him but 6 hes extremely balanced imo.
Jean: If this is to make up for taking ongh out, idk...I feel like they could both be unbanned and the deck might see some relative play and it would be healthy for the game. Ongh can be rebanned though because he is ridiculous sometimes.
Qubik: If youre gonna ban him unban rowdy Cr...Ridiculous statement huh...just as ridiculous as this ban.
Pilzken: I love junta...he deserved the axe though.
Fairbanks: is broke. I dont feel like they are nearly as menacing as they were with spiahgi so Im fine with him being unbanned kinda...But that woulc ome along with the unbanning of several other cards that were either added today or still banned from forever ago for uknown reasons.
Oshitsune: strong yes...perma ban....maybe...But not when youre taking off caelus at the same time for probably ludicrous reasons.
yayaoi: You guys unbanning diana? if the answer is no...please unban her...the caln is crippled. Slayer provides hope but not when your going to go around hitting other cards in the clan. Unban Lucy while your at it.
Pr Cushing: They need that dr... its reeeeeeally good and with the new 5 star soa I know theyre playable but thats not a crime. He shouldnt be banned.
Tuck/curlix: were the roots doing something magical I was unaware of with all of those bans they already have...neither are ban worthy.
daddy jones: wellll.....I understand.
Cyb Lhia: if this is because rahi....ban rahi...he steals games that shouldnt be stolen....too much swing...too easy to play, cyb did nothing wrong.
New Unbanned cards: I could go through ways that these cards could comeback with hits to other cards in certain clans but with what was done this time around, These 4 cards should remain banned.
From this entire list...I can count on one hand the number of changes that mightve kinda made sense.
