Dominating Junkz got a -2 penalty card and less dominating clans like Bangers, Junta and Montana got 2...
Nicely done UR staff...
Either Rowdy Cr gets a -2 penalty or Gil gets a -5 should be fine.
Milena and Pilzken both get a -2 penalty will kill Junta in DT.
Oxen does not need to be penalized... Get Zatman back to -5 or -10 and let Oxen go.
@321 We think Xingshu isn't overpowered when picked alone, but can be when she is paired with some other cards. Plunk is one of them, giving the player a huge tactical advantage, because the Skeelz clan has really nice hitters at 4 and 5 stars. This is why we decided to ban Plunk instead of Xingshu
Regarding post 314 and 318 I have to say that I totally agree. I might get hate for saying this but imo cards like Spatla ,Kero and Marly should be elo banned because it is so hard to obtain those cards even if you were playing for a long time. Iam really not asking for changes that make elo super low buget friendly but imo Kero deserved a ban during this rotation since you also banned Ongh (and the arguments that were used to justify this were just straight up ridiculous... ).
@Falco (re: post 307)
A little context:
Ongh can be replaced by a different 5* heavy-hitter in Jungo.
Kero can be replaced in a much more literal way by Yoshida, an "analogue" card.
It makes sense to ban Ongh, but it wouldn't make sense to ban Kero with Yoshida still freely available.
