I'd want to see at least Smokey Cr unbanned, he isn't even the Piranas best 3 star anymore questionably, and as a veteran player in urban rivals I'd love to get more use out of him than just in Type 1 Deathmatch, especially since it is super rare to see and really expensive to get.
I wouldn't really call 65K super expensive. Also if you get bonnie ld back, you can't get smokey cr back, only one or the other (That's what I'd think). And I personally would pick bonnie ld to bring back.
Anyways, general guidelines? Otherwise we really should all rally votes and ban ogoun kyu, just to test staff's "We really do listen to your suggestions" theory
Ban: sledge, el divinio, quibik cliff. and maybe kinichaw.
-olga deserves NO ban, Freaks get that much hate----> ppl even ban the 2*, without olga and the same amount of hate...they get son unplayable again. week
-same goes with uranus: NO BAN; you see no single sak out there if uranus is banned. so bann him forever no more sak forever? are you joking guys?
----> my idea ---> ban uranus UNBAN Mokra. (uranus works fine in other decks) but mokra is more like steroids for non played saks and not that dangerous in non sak decks.
roots: i think unbanning lou is a good idea, but then arno deserves his ban. (too much blocker)
-fuzz or quibik...I think quibik is a good idea. His 1 less star makes a bigger lose than fuzz. But there is still fuzz as nuke.
-Hermann why? i mean there are almost no uppers out there... in dt ok but elo? nooo
-kampel: keep him. He is good against that freaks, and they deserve him if they loose the nukes.
-oshi? keep him, he is no more that monster he was once. strong yes, but not a unbeatable monster --->but maybe ban arthus to weak them
graven? for gods sake, he is the only reason they get played again in elo. NO BAN
Lehane. This steroid monster deserves ban as much as Jackie cr especially since sentinel got excelent cards.
Noktezuma, beeboy --->omg these are almost big 5 great. NOT FOR ELO
mecha??? hmm... hard, too. in dt he deserves penalty in elo...hmmpf... if toro comes back ok, if toro stays banned i would keep him
Cool UR staff! Just what was needed to (hopefully) improve elo again
Olga? No ban
Lou? No ban, despite the reasoning for Fuzz and Cliff below, because Roots are less playable than Junkz anyways
Fuzz or Qubik? Fuzz due to damage
Cliff? Yes ban, same reason as Fuzz
Herman? No ban
Campbell? No ban
Sledg? No ban, or risk making Rescue even more SOB vulnerable than already
Graven? No way! Comparable to Askai in some ways, but Graven makes Berzerk, while Jungo are great without Askai
Lehane? Keep ban, as much as I hate to say it
Unban Muze too Nice to see a good Non-Freaks poison other than Konrad Cyb Lhia or Tabasco Fire for once
Noctezuma? Are you kidding UR? Good job his ability was broken as it meant he was banned quicker.
Talking of Huracan, ban Kinichaw due to massive hitting potential, not El Divino though as he struggles so much in later rounds.
El Gascaro? No ban
Derby Queen? Definitely ban
Banning every Huracan is just too much, El Gascaro and Kinichaw are stand out problems. They both increase life which, in Huracan, is a devastating ability to hold.
El Divino and Derby Queen can stay, I mean Divino will be banned all the time anyway so no real reason to ban all 3 cards.
Cliff and Sledg deserve to go but bring back either Lea or Elvira to compensate. Both those 5* just create a coin flip on their draw due to Rescue's double 0ld ability
Olga deserves her ban again. i don;t understand why she ever came back. Grudj deserves to come back, that switch was just stupid in the first place.
It's time for Quibik to go I think. Junkz use is exponentially increasing and they have become that go to clan to just block everything with their utility. People will have to squeeze Fuzz in there for SOA and drop their pains (Romana/Tremorh) to a worse card to compensate
Extra bans: Bogdan, Marina. Both are staples and it'd be nice to spice things up (Bring back striker)
Elvira or lea
Mokra for uranus. This stops the stupid uranus splash and gives sak game time when he's unbanned
Ulrich...we don't need more pill manip especially not that deadpill 2* ld they have -_-
Bristone AND Dolly for Leviatonn and XU52...I like that trade
I'd be cool with unbanning smokey as long as bonnie and ulrich remain banned. It's mostly those extremely stable 6 damage cards and extremely stable soa cards tht bother me: Rowdy, Wee lee, yayoi, Striker, Toro, Bogdan, and worst of all, el gascaro and blaaster cr since they're still not yet banned. Elvis does bug me, but at least his damage prevents him from being too powerful.
Down with Saki!
"This all seems like a nice idea but people are just going to vote in their own favor not in the best interest of all or the game mode."
I agree, urban staff shouldn't take in considerations the players opinion in staff bans. For that already exist the ban vote for players. They have to prioritize the balance of the elo mode, not just the personal taste of the majority, things can get really bad if the do that, it might change the elo for worst....
Maybe they could put a unban vote for player too, to unban one staff ban character for week, for example.
