Most of you must remember that temporary bans have been tested out in August. We are satisfied with the results of this experience, on the whole. Therefore, we’ve decided to definitively implement this system of temporary bans.
The goal of these bans is to offer a more balanced and constantly evolving game environment in ELO. These bans are there to encourage you to use lesser played clans or/and to try left out characters.
The list of weekly temporary banned characters will always be known the week ahead. We created a summing-up page where you will find the ELO bans and the information you need to build your deck. You can reach this page from the ELO ranking page.
Regarding DT penalties, the rule is very simple: only permanently banned characters lead to penalties in DT. It means that neither characters banned because of your votes not temporary ELO bans will penalizing in DT.
These changes will come into effect as of Monday, September 27th.
Gcttirth, we argued for months your point, although we were a little more eloquent. it's a lost cause. what they are doing now is a compromise, and a good one at that. just take what you can get, although i do agree with you man.
