I think one of the main problems right now is the lack of players, most players that are still in the game are rich, so they don't feel the need to focus on anyone but them. With the low player base the richer players have the majority making it easier to just do things for them. If we get more new players it should make them realize that not everyone has played this game for 10 years and doesn't want to have to spend upwards of 100 dollars just to build a collection.
But personally I hate efc, being able to use previously elo-banned cards in elo was bizzare. I loved elo, I made every deck revolving around it and now it's pointless :/
I didn't even necro this thread
From my perspective, certain clans, still, do run rampant in EFC higher up, such as the SoA + SoB clans, Roots NM is such a typical one lol, with many an OP card, and people using VERY OP cards, even in Z Palace, that can actually deal with cards lower down.
Imo, the weekly bans of Elo, yes, it did make you have to consider the bans, but this helped to create some diversity, if you're in Z Palace, you realistically can't play all of the clans, some, just tip the game in your favour, such as the common Roots + NM, and are faaar easier to play. But, this then makes cards like Ymirah, Jackie Cr, obsolete , except for in Survivor formats. I think it's a tricky one, I'd love for Elo to come back though, but this game, isn't what it once was unfortunately.
I feel like you're talking hypothetically HoAzeem and you should listen to someone who is talking literally. Do you actually play EFC a lot?
The reason I ask is this: If you are actively playing in Z Palace all the time then what are you complaining about? You're doing good.
If you are unable to reach Z Palace then what are you complaining about? You should be able to use all the cards you're talking about.
I use Freaks and Pussycats for Z Palace by the way. So there are two options that you haven't thought of yet.
And you say that Ymirah and Jackie are obsolete except in Survivor formats but in old ELO you could never ever ever ever ever use them... but in EFC you can always use them to start with.
I mean what are you even talking about?
*And you say that Ymirah and Jackie are obsolete except in Survivor formats but in old ELO you could never ever ever ever ever use them... but in EFC you can always use them to start with.*
thats the problem
did u know, if a new week of efc coming, and u didnt complete ur 5 games, u can actually play a t2 deck in efc? like all ur 8 cards to be 5 stars? and ur will meet a guy like this and ur z palace?
That makes... all of us.
But even if that is true-- again-- who cares?
If you ARE NOT good at EFC... and you are blaming this reason for why you are not good... then you are NOT in Z Palace and this problem has NEVER happened to you.
The people in Z Palace do have to face this problem. But it is clearly not a big problem for them. Because they are still in Z Palace.
They are in Z Palace because they can win 3 rounds. They are in Z Palace because they can win with less stars. They are in Z Palace because no matter how Urban Rivals decides to change the rules... the game remains the same, and they are able to pick good decks for any format due to practicing in Coliseum and Events.
