As we All know from veteran players to new players that the only format in the game that has a ban list is Elo, which we can understand why. Though i'm sure like my self there are many players here that play ccg's in our own life's like for instance i play Yugioh, Universal fighting system (very rarely) and have played Magic the gathering.
Now all of these games have a ban list that effect the whole of the game, recently yugioh has changed it's ban list as like in UR as certain cards were making deck's to powerful. So what they have done is ban or limit the usage of the cards that were dominating the game and unbanned a card that will a little balance (just like UR). Though this effects the whole game, not just a certain part of the game.
So what i'd like to see is that instead of Elo just having a ban list that also, type 1 and 2 have a ban list. This way it balances out the whole aspect of the game
So what do the rest feel about my suggestion do you feel that this could be a good idea, and can be a very good idea?? Or would it effect play style to much??
Type 2 is more or less only daily tournament, which balances itself through the point system. Type 1 is elo without banning. Banning cards in type 1 would be kinda strange. UR hasn't such a big cardpool like i.e. magic where you can have two similar formats only differing in there banned list.
Actually we have
-the "casual" rooms: you can just play what you want...similar to play a real ccg at the kitchentable...no need to ban anything here
-daily tournament: Most players who take this serious play in Type 2 room which is balanced through the point system. You could play all those elobanned cards but if you just throw all of the good ones together, you end up with a deck not getting enough points at all. Only the
The big difference between games like yugi-oh and UR is that they all have magic cards spells n traps, where as UR is simple card VS card. Also they play in a single format whereas UR there are many formats giving you different deck options and there is no 1 card that can just win a match by itself. not even kolos will win it if there is soa or a card with higher atk. With atk comes pillz, another thing that yugi doesn't have which is what makes or breaks the game for you. I don't believe that any clam is unbeatable, I've beaten uppers with bangers, bangers with sentinel and sentil with uppers.
The other point is that when you ban cards, another card will take its place, just look at elo. when jackie and zatman where banned from elo, eventually hawk and lehane took their place. It would also waste ppls money getting cards they can never use and would make certain cards much stronger by removing their weakness and you'd have the same problem.
Daily tournaments are meant for quick but competitive play. I don't think a ban list, especially a rolling/variable ban, would be fun there. It would hurt people who want to casually hop into the room and play a few games, only to find that they can't actually play because of a rolling ban. And, frankly, I think the DT rooms exist in some part to ensure that there's some competitive environment in which people can use the best cards they have. Banning DJ Korr _everywhere_ makes it pointless to aspire to get him, let alone actually own him.
