The students put on quite a show and while some of the clans were pretty impressed, others have decided to strike back and they definitely mean business. The first to retaliate are the Pussycats with Noemi, then there’s the Jungo with Pegh, La Junta with Archibald and not forgetting the Rescue with the fearsome Sledg. Get these characters in the shop’s New Blood, Action and Cool Attitude packs.
Well lets take a look at rescue's strongest car - marco
against SOA he is only 5-powered. no other rescue card has more than 7 power.
and you say those card are hurt by soa? only oscar is. all other cards have 8 power without using an ability.
against sob - lyse teria and jackie are only hurt by piranas and nightmare because of their SOA. And they easily win that battles since piranas and nightmare lack 8-powered cards.
against full stops - only shakra has 8 power, but he is 5* so he will have to pill more to win. any other used full stops are 6-powered.
even that 8-powered rescue card will be "vulnerable" to sob. and at the end nobody said it doesn't have to be banned in elo.
Esperantisto, Oscar, as you said, is really hurt by SOA (and considering how popular Montana/Hugo is, he also loses 1 power from that). Lyse Teria Cr and Jackie are banned, Zatman and Dorian are banned half the time. Enzo may as well not have an ability, sort of similar to Eyrton but without the ability to beat Lyse Teria Cr after a while.
YES those clans have 8 power cards, but they shouldn't, and the community and staff have recognized this and banned the cards regularly.
@soliuz: Lajuntas meant RESCUE has no minimum since they add their own attack. And by the way minimum of Uppers makes no sense since it is same as Sakrohm. I think they should change it to 5 at least.
@_wise_: ok, sorry, wise.
@Tyrell4: they did elo ban them, but they are still used all the time in t1/t2. Since those clans use their overpowered cards invulnerable to sob/soa there all the time and rescue had no cards like that (until Sledg) it wasn't an easy task to win a tourney with Rescue unless playing in elo. And now when they're banning most solid rescue cards, when opposed to Piranas/Nightmare/GHEIST/Roots, Rescue's chances to win are not so high.
And I'm not saying this because I like Rescue, I'm saying this because it's true. Just take a look at the top 10 played characters list - there are no Rescue cards. It's obvious what are the most imba cards/clans.
