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

Firstly i will say i never play elo so maybe my input isnt relevant. Seems to me that players want OP cards banned, staff want over used cards banned. People will complain no matter what as always. What is the real point of elo? Build a "tactical deck" or w/e. I remember elo used to have 12 life... they wanted to shift away from KO meta maybe so they raised life to 14. They perma ban so many staples to force diversity but its not possible. As soon as you add 7 cards to ban list people will shift to the next best 7 that arent banned. Ban lola they will use tiwi. Ban qubic ban fuzz ban lou ban alec ban every poison ban every dr ban them all so people will move to pill play? Ban joy... then what? People will go ulu power? Attack more? They will just find the next niche. Ok so staff says elo was stale? Every format is stale because when people see/find what works they will use it. So the first week they will iron out the new list then 3 weeks of the same. Its all really silly. There are so many bans that arent needed. Maybe 20 cards is all. Leave the rest and people will have more cards to choose from and therefore more diversity. Problem solved. All that said, if elo people like the system so much they sure arent commenting positively on here... my solution? Keep elo but add one or two more game modes for others to play in. Balance prizes across modes. No AI battles. Do a hardcore T1 format with no bans room and see how crazy it gets. How about a T2 elo? Or 120 min tourney
I hope you will consider banning some cards from huracan and rescue clan
for example el papa gallo or mama killa this two in combination is really badly to encounter
Campbell, reeve, or even Pastor we have also Sledg (this is just proposition)
Moses from montana is my candidate for ban
Curlix would be nice to get back as he is one of very playable cards and roots are weak without him
Unbaning Eyrik return's All Stars back in game even with striker banned and this could lead to very high usage of All Stars and on other hand usage from Piranas,nightmares but they are weaker against Skellz with Caelus Cr in game
There is always place to think about strategy and there is lot of options to set game to new rules.
I really don't care if they ban dolly cr with the 12 other poison cards gheist have they be fine. what gheist need is some defense or healing regen cards cause no way in hell they can be playable with out a bit of defense heal or regen soon. with cards comen out like brutus who's way way op for a dr but he be fine many player's will like him but he's a more powerful then any dr I seen lately.
No body is really that bothered About ongh actually...
But caelus is different...
Problem with caelus is he entirely shifts the meta..
All decks are either with caelus or caelus counter decks with 2-3 protection power..
Is that fun? Really??
"Wide diversity of decks"..okk
