They've said numerous times that they aren't gonna do a Survivor T1 because people were hardly using the old one. So that's why they put T1 and T2 together making T3. I do agree though, it kinda suck that you don't see a lot of the OP 3* just because while effective in Tourney T1 and EFC they don't really have impact elsewhere. Also, due to the high number of 5*s in Tourney T2, I suspect it's only a matter of time before Fisthon is banned from there as well.
