Hello UR players, these are the reasons behind the EFC Z Palace changes.
Freaks was definitely the most used clan. After them, a great number of other clans spotted very similar win rates and play rates. Some to match Freaks, some to counter Freaks.
We decided to nerf the Freaks and to buff the few clans that were in the bottom of the ranking, as well as touching the least played and performing LD cards.

For Freaks, we noticed how the majority of the players used the combination of Crazy Legs (opener card), Jezebel (defensive card) and Arturo (finisher card).
We think one of them shouldn’t be allowed in Z Palace; together, they make Freaks decks too solid and versatile, without any real counters.
Crazy Legs: we are reluctant to ban a New Blood card so soon, as we always want to give them a second chance to see if the players can adapt to them.
Arturo: we like cards like Arturo, as it’s not a card to be played in the first rounds to take advantage of the bonus, but more carefully at the right moment later in the match.
We think he is a nice offensive card that’s fun to play with, giving more depths to the freaks playstyle.
Jezebel: strong low stars damage reducer, Jezebel resulted to be too synergic with Crazy Legs and frustrating to play against.
She also permitted the creation of too unbalanced and effective 5-3 deck formations, a thing that made Freaks even stronger this season.
We decided to try and ban Jezebel to balance the clan, that now will need to be paired with other clans to obtain low-stars defensive cards, while keeping all of his offensive prowess.
GHEIST: changing Jaxx Ld ability from growth: -3 opp atk min 3 to +10 attack. This will make the card much more stable over the course of the match.
Roots: We get the feeling Bakuta Ld doesn’t get much usage as a wall for its low damages, while Krazan Ld ability would work better on a 2*.
We feel like swapping the abilities between the two Roots legendary cards could be the right solution to enchance them both.
Krazan Ld: From 7-2 regen 1 max 19 to 7-4 brawl: +3 atk
Bakuta Ld: From 7-2 brawl: -3 opp. atk min 3 to 7-1 regen 1, max 16
