05/11/09...not as old as some, but ELO is my main mode smiley

Pro's of current ELO:
- Almost every clan is highly playable....only real exception is La Junta who sitll have a bit to go
- Weekly bans really smash down Overpowering clans but don't completely annihilate them (unlike the certain 8 or so card Roots ban week)
- No more potential KO from the second round (I find this a pro and realise why Gheist used to be so ridiculously strong
- Even cheap, average decks can get to 1200+

Con's:
- Whilst every clan is useable...'staple' halfdecks are the only thing anyone ever uses
- Certain weeks unbans just create too much domination (eg: Askai)
- 2* strong support coupled with nukes has become the meta...30ld + nuke fury is a viable option
- Power AND ability creep. The best example is a used-to-be-wonderful card like Tula...now she is an honest liability in most situations
- Noob tactics and just packing nukes is one of the best ways to go

Luck/Skill/Cards and decks

Luck and skill must always be in the game...but as waster has pointed out...if you don't draw the appropriate counter against certain decks the game becomes almost unwinnable from round 1...I find an easy example is if you don't draw any SOA or DR...now the most key part of any deck
And thus luck in your cards drawn has become a significant part of the game

More elo missions. Missions right now only act as milestones.

UR had already implemented this idea a while back. There were No/All Dr weeks, No/All SoA weeks etc. I wasn't that active in ELO during that time though so I do not have any thoughts or opinions on that.

I guess the average ELO player would fancy a fun ELO week but I'm not so sure about them ELO fanatics who fancy the mode for the score than the plays.

Interesting.

I personally wouldn't gravitate towards something like this for ELO though. Angie isn't strong enough to occupy the 5 card slot. Also, every single card here is hard to win a round with, meaning there aren't enough pillz to comfortably win 2 rounds in most games; and the nukes (Angie and Muze) are extremely shaky under many common conditions.

I don't quite agree with the above. One thing that people forget about the Skeelz is that they have another powerful nuke; Snowflake. Snowflake will often gap for somewhere around 7 or 8, sometimes higher. With the right walls, that can definitely win you the game. The odds of drawing either Snowflake or Greem + a couple of great walls are pretty good.

As a rule of thumb, if you have at least 3 hands that are at a huge winning advantage, I consider it okay to have 1 weak hand. The odds of drawing any four specific cards are the same... So that means for every game you will probably lose due to your weakest hand, you will probably win 3 due to your strong hands.

Also, keep in mind that Belle can be really dangerous, especially if you sneak that fury in! You might still be able to get away with a 3-round win with a seemingly poor hand, like Chiara/Sandro/Sasha/Belle.

TLDR: Go for it. smiley

Those cards are pretty good already, and I highly doubt people will donate cards to a random.

Interesting deck. Might have some bad had draws so you could look into changing a 5* to a 4* and adding a * somewhere else.

Actually i just changed the Deck Again lol here it is

The cards are banned in the room to add a bit more tactics to the deck building and so that every deck dosn't contain a big 5.

Just a point that I want to add, since we do not know what deck you're using, what we are stating are actually the card that are, in our perspective, the most beneficial in play. So those opinions are not facts, and the cards we like doesn't suit every kind of deck, so perhaps you may not find fit. I mean it all basically comes down to combos, or recipes. Just because we like lemonade dosn't mean we'll pour it over all our pasta. We have to personally see what our deck lacks of, and then fill up the void using the best 5* card we think is best candidate. This apply to you too. You like pasta but the pasta is incomplete without pasta sauce, you too like pasta sauce to be added in, so you naturally put the sauce into the pasta to make the best out of it. Sorry, I was a little bit of hungry when typing this smiley but still, I really hope you will get the point.
