The new ELO system is still in beta test. We are improving it to make it more efficient :

Well, I am still totally against a "ban limit". If a card(e.g. Hawk, imho Lehane as well) gets banned again and again it shows CONSENT between players after all that it should probably never have been made in the first place... About every TCG has such cards which then get banned. The question I ponder more is at what point the adins should decide to officially perma-ban a card... and if we then indeed see rotating cards.
What I see so far is... very, very slight rotation; a feast for certain cards when they do _not_ get banned for one week with utter domination as everything that could be put up against them _is_ banned; and some... very weird bans imho.
Have I used more different decks than before? Um, yes. Mostly to try out. An 95% they failed as I suspected - my impression at this point is that this system pushed more towards "Join them since you cannot defeat them".
One thing is sure: some kinda improvements are needed? Why am I that sure about it? Hmmm... lets see... Something must be wicked, broken and wrong when both Dorian and Zatman are unbanned and freed from their cells. Its boring when you face zatman and/or dorian 4 times in a row, and we dont talk about some rubbish cards, this duo can wrack any deck.
This could turn into a vicious cycle though. If more people are forced to use the principle, 'if you cant beat them join them' then after a uppers dominated week more people will be playing uppers and thus more people will vote to save zatman and dorian. allowing them to dominate another week and get even more players to start using uppers etc, etc etc...
@Fraggle Mhm. Yes, trying out more as the old does not work because it is banned. To be expected. The real question is - how successful are those "other" decks? And some things have nothing to do with ELO changes. I surmise that Nightmare got a "now playable!" push due to recent release. (Ironically I don't play them any more currently
