I'm confused on why Sarkohm has an overall worse bonus than Uppers without anything redeeming about it in comparison. I mean all other clans have something the same or just different, not better. Montana have a higher subtraction but a higher minimum than these two, Ulu Watus and Bangers have the same, Fang Pi Clang and La Junta have the same, Junkz and Sentinel the same, Rescue has a higher max bonus but it is support, Roots and GHEIST are the same and All Stars, Pussycats and Nightmare are completely unique. However, Sarkohm has a lower subtraction at the same minimum compared to the Uppers, I'm just wondering the logic behind it.
I'd call Uranus and Graksmxxt redeeming factors, but that's just me. -8, min 3 lets cards sureshot without using pillz and is a great bonus. Throw in their insane damage reducers and you've got a clan that's potent and unique. They don't need the same bonus as the Uppers to be effective.
Sarkohm's advantage over uppers is that they have 4 Damage reduces ( 2 of the best in the game in Uranus and GraksmxxT) as opposed to uppers which has only 1 in Gina Glitt. 3 of Sark's also do 5-6 Damage which means you have to waste pills if you want to stop them. Your not gonna bluff anyone throwing out Gina. (Never seen her used in any match's by the way). Bottom line is that Uppers is a first tier Clan in the meta game at the moment but Sarkohm's not terrible and certainly has it's uses.
They may have different amounts for reduction but their abilities are different which makes them have their own strength like Sakrohm are great defenders with -5 opp damage from Uranus. It's sad that since they are powerful in that sense, they have lost their best asset in ELO Graksmxxt. GG's!
I've always wondered about this too, its very true Sakrohm has power houses like the banned GraksmxxT and the non banned Uranus, but uppers has such power houses as the banned Jackie and the non banned Zatman.
I still love Sakrohm for dailies because inferior bonus or not, no clan can compare to their damage reduction. But for ELO where GraksmxxT is banned its harder to justify their bonus, infact I see many people just ignore sakrohm and splash uranus in their deck as their only Sakrohm member. If their characters superior damage reduction is really meant to justify their weaker bonus perhaps we need to see GraksmxxT get CR'd and a new more balanced GraksmxxT be released, maybe a 7/4 with the same ability and level.
I think it is unfair... in the "old" day when graks wasn't banned, this diference was more than justified now I believe it isn't...
sakrhom havent' that big reducers... they have the great uranus and the other 2 cards have min 3 wich isn't really a good thing! at least not for nah bo since there are common card with the same ability and min 2! yes he has more damage but the truth is that in most situations he will be used has a damage reducer and nothing else! anyway cards are coming from times to times and I believe that sakrhom is still to receive their best cards...
