Currently for whatever reason, ELO decks are allowing banned characters. If you are caught using this exploit, your ELO score will be reduced to 1000, and you will be blacklisted. Just because the system is allowing you to use banned characters doesn't mean it's not a form of cheating. You know these characters are banned.
If you see anyone exploting this bug, report it to me or another Admin. We will take care of it. Include screenshots if you can and report usernames.
We are aware and working now to fix it.
