Hello Urban Rivals players,
Here there are the reasons behind the aforementioned changes:
Dominion and Nightmare were quite popular the past weeks, while the recently introduced Exchange abilites were used a lot and we are watching them carefully.
Whenever we introduce a new clan, we don’t only create cards for the Z Palace, but also for the other game modes.
Dookor is one example, being an extremely solid card designed for all Type 1 and Type 2 decks.
We decided to allow him in Z Palace as the clan had only access to 9 cards at the moment of his release.
Now that Dominion have access to a bigger roster of cards (with 2 more coming out next week), we think we can safely move him down to EFC Tower, as we do with the majority of the new survivor-designed characters we release.
With the release of Incubus, we think the clan roster of 4* cards is strong enough and there is no need to keep in the format Dj Korps, due to his very strong semievo potential.
We had to decide if removing his semievo ability, or if lowering him down to Polit Arena (like we did for Leliana, who proved to be ok as 5* but too strong as 4*).
We decided to follow this second path, restoring Mefisto to Z Palace.
Fang Pi Clang:
Pa Mei and Dokuja Ld slowly became much more popular during the past months.
Dokuja Ld in particular spotted extremely high match winrates, similars to the ones of Goure and Leone in the past.
We fear she may become a danger to the format in the near future.
This is why we decided to restore her attack manipulation from +15 to +14.
This change may not seem like much, but that single attack point marked a crucial difference in the pill fights against other 7 powered cards. We think this change will keep her strong, but under control.
Jungo and Raptors:
These two clans were rarely used and we would like to boost them a little.
Antoine and Rocket are support-based cards, a condition very difficult to be played in this zone.
Salsa and Shaker are relatively recent releases, and while they aren’t powerhouses, their abilities may prove useful to counter the new Exchange mechanic.
This is we we decided to try the swaps Antoine-Salsa and Rocket-Shaker, hoping it will help the meta to adapt to these new abilities.
Bangers were the least used clan the past month.
While this was surely influenced by the prominence of Nightmare and Dominion, we think the 2* roster of the clan could use a little help, as it is strongly dependant to Skinny Bob Ld.
This is why we decided to try a swap Doug Snop-Pearl for this month. This will also serve as a test for a New Blood coming soon… ; )
Riots were also rarely used. We decided to try a swap that we anticipated some time ago: the unban of Pr Priest for Rockwall.
Pr Priest is indeed a very solid pick, but we think it will have his place in the meta for these reason:
- competition with Pr Balthazar.
Pr Balthazar is commonly picked over him in every other zone. Since Pr Balthazar hasn’t showed dangerous signs in Z Palace, we think it’s safe to assume the same will be true for Pr Priest.
- difficulty of building a Riots deck with a double 5 stars card.
Due to their bonus and playstyle, Riots resulted to be more effective when played as a defensive clan. Using their low stars cards to help other clan finishers, more than being an offensive clan on its own.
In our opinion, this change should give the clan an additional option (especially since Pr Priest is a strong answer to Dominion), without making Riots too powerful.
The clan is one of the few clans having three 5* cards in the zone.
Rust is a card that was created for high stars game modes and we think it isn’t really helpful in Z Palace. The clan offers already Pavel as an offensive choice and Aviria Ld, easily accessible, as a defensive choice.
We think Rust reduces the possible clan picks at lower levels, and this reduces the clan overall strenght and adaptability.
This is why we decided to do a swap Rust-Westwood.
All Stars, Sakrohm, Vortex, Pussycats, Skeelz, GHEIST, La Junta, Frozn, GhosTown, Huracan, Rescue, Junkz, Ulu Watu, Berzerk, Freaks, Hive, Roots, Uppers, Piranas:
We think there is no need to change anything to these clans for now.
There are no changes in the zones lower than Z Palace.
Against spoiler you have to just leave the last round (sometimes 2nd last) as it's overpowering your card by 5-6 power most of the time
Dookor + #Valhala , Dj Korps 4* + Incubus, Lagertha... you killed everything in these last 2 NB waves
Please delete Dj Korps semievo, and exchange vs protection should work as copy, for example El Parasito vs #Valhala both cards should have 6 dmg, otherwise you can't have a solid deck, all you can do is play some cards with good stats, some exchange and some cards with bad stats and good abilities and hope you get a favourable hand
Well put Izy.
But seriously, the new powers give us a wider scope of action to help other UR players in managing the EN community.
I figured the probly drop her stats for that ability thought. an if vholt did change to that ability cancel life modifier she have a leader that can just stop her.

The last change was anticipated last month: we decided to try and give one more base Damage to Pl4gue Ld, in order to make him more impactful on the match and help him distinguish in playstyle from Bikini Joe Ld.
