Hello Urban Rivals players,
The changes listed below will be implemented immediately.
Added to the Ban List:
Marina, Ramath, Raven, Sabia, Mama Killa, Nabrissa, Elvira, Gertjan, Martha, Redra, Moai, Cyb Lhia
Removed from the Ban List:
Striker (Striker Rb), Isatis, Yayoi cr, Arturo, Reeve, Coby
We decided to modify the stats of some legendary cards.
Fhtagn Ld, Raser Ld, Kommandon Ld, Sylvia Ld, Scott Ld
Explanation in the comments.
This ban list ELO have been discussed with these 5 ELO players:
Marina made All Stars more popular than our expectations, and she overshadowed the other DR of the clan. We restored Striker and banned Marina.
Ramath is a card that can change the course of the match alone, with his huge + Life gap.
We decided to swap it with Arturo. Sure, Arturo is a very strong round winner, but we think that is less troublesome to control compared to Ramath.
For her huge life gap, very synergic with the bonus, Mama Killa resulted to be a card a little too ‘random’ and powerful as match opener for Huracan.
Sabia and Raven formed a couple almost impossible to overcome in mono La Junta decks, creating a lot of 50-50 situations. We want to try and ban them both in order to restore Isatis. This should make La Junta decks less ‘extreme’ and more balanced.
Right now, Pussycats are seen solely as a low stars support clan. We would like to try and change things a bit for them.
We restored Yayoi cr, a very strong hitter and control card, in exchange of Nabrissa.
This change, combined with the fact that now Lois Ld becomes a more useful pick, will make pussycats decks much more aggressive. We will see this month how it will work!
Elvira made Rescue decks too popular. We reverted back the change of last month, restoring Reeve and banning her.
Roots mono decks, or mono deck + leader, have been too much popular last month. This is why we want to try and ban Gertjan.
The clan is always one of the least played clans. We think that the reason might be that it lacks damages and it’s often forced to win 3 rounds in a match. However, this is not the tactic we want to give to Sentinel, as it is something more in the Junkz style.
In order to differentiate a bit the two clans, we decided to restore Coby, a strong damage dealer, but banning martha, a strong low pillz round winner.
We discussed a lot this clan.
We think that one of the reason why the clan is hated is that they have cards dealing a huge gap (most notably Miss Xingshu, Galactea, Nekron) combined with strong damage reducer cards (most notably Redra, Henry, Arantxa).
This causes a lot of 50-50 situations (will he old the damage reducer or will he pillz the damage dealer?).
Among all the cards of the clan, we think that the most troublemaker is Redra, for these reasons:
- She makes other Skeelz cards easily splashable in 5-3 or even 6-2 formations
- She is almost every time played without pillz with the solely porpoise of reducing damages. Cards like Arantxa and Henry can be played offensively. Redra no.
- She fits very easily in every deck (being 2*), making decks more unbalanced.
We think that by banning her the clan will be played in a more stable way.
Think of this change as something similar to Spiaghi and Avola of Montana: they are too strong to coexist in the same deck, but without spiaghi, avola can be controlled. Same here for Redra.
The clan have been constantly in the top 3 picked clans. We think the reason of this is Moai, too stable and strong. We want to try and see how Ulu Watu will perform without it.
Cyb Lhia is a card fine in Vortex decks, but she becomes too strong when splashed with other clans. We decided to ban it for this porpoise. To avoid making Vortex too weak, however, we did a little change to Fhtagn Ld… and this brings us to the LD changes!
Talking with the players, we think that a few number of LD cards could still use little enhancements in order to really shine in their own clan.
This is why we did little changes to these 5 LD cards minimums / maximums:
Sylvia Ld - From min 2 to min 3, more synergic with the bonus
Raser Ld - From min 8 to min 7, stronger in the clan economy since a few times could win old
Kommandon Ld - From min 7 to min 4, stronger against other atk reducer cards such as the Hive
Fhtagn Ld - From min 4 to min 2, to give the clan a strong Cyb Lhia replacement
Scott Ld - From max 15 to max 16, to make it a little more synergic with the other + life cards of the clan.
The other clans seemed fine to us at the moment, or we think that their issues can be solved by the player themselves with your weekly votes. Changes to them may be done next month, they are fine for now.
We will keep to monitorate the usage of all the LD cards. Other possible little changes may be done next month.
Yayoi cr was needed but not at this cost
now Pussycats have only 6 usable cards imo that match up to the other clans
slayer, leela, yayoi cr, lois ld, mina, ashikaze ld
With two of them being legendary its almost impossible to make a good 12-13* half -.-
The changes are really bad IMO . Moai is now banned , only 4* left is Numar and Daddy Jones , a 5* , gets banned sometimes . Even with Daddy Jones unbanned , it's impossible to make a deck since there's no third good 3* as Chel is banned
Mama Killa is banned , so Huracan can't even be used in half decks , unless one is going to use three 3* and a 2* . I don't believe El Matador is good .
Others are fairly good , but I believe that Joy should've been unbanned , Bangers are not used much if Blaaster Cr is banned ( which is basically every time , except for last month )
