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.

On the lower side of the ranking, we made a slight modification to: Sentinel, All Stars, La Junta and Uppers
Sentinel: restoring Carmen in place of Scar
All Stars: restoring Crazy Carlo in place of Morrigan
La Junta: restoring Scooty in place of Spade
Uppers: with Christelle leaving the zone and the buff to the GHEIST and Roots LD cards, we think we can try and restore the previously banned Josephine in place of Sir Barks
- - - - -
Last but not least, we decided to make some slight modifications to the least played LD cards
Riots: changing Dr Web Ld stats from 5-3 to 6-2. This will permit her to wall against the low damage cards that otherwise would bypass her damage reduction, making her more polyvalent
Huracan: reducing Buga Baga Ld ability minimum from 1 to 0
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

I imagine by dregn going back in time to prevent his own demise must have caused some kind of bizarre butterfly effect which would have changed his fate entirely.
But nope,he had to go back in time and be a hero(and lose many of his trusted soldiers along the way) and get the crap pummelled out of him by his sister.
If he had stayed back and not listened to Heegrn cr,he'd probably still be around.
Meanwhile,I believe shaakarti cr would be the new clan leader depending on what's going on with dregn,being as she's getting that training going on and probably will not make the mistake of going back like dregn did.
I'm a believer in the idea that a cr can still lead a clan if their relationship to the clan hasn't been fully severed...shaakarti cr is one of those cases.
My predictions are Sentinel, GhosTown, Dominion, and Junkz. let's see who get more right
Wish there was another mission that gave additional credits if you finished all 20 missions lol
@ rowdy MOB cr that canhappen after all they do come from a mix of clans as one an gheist is part of the vortex in the future. but since they time traviled thought gheist an vortex butt head's a lot lol.
Death adder had to be banned no matter what card you would of played on round 4 unless you had double- triple the pillz or a sob you could not beat him.
It's been confirmed multiple times that the only cards that will change are leaders and legendaries.
let's hope ashigaru is next.
2X Dominion , GhosTown and Montana
Whenever i click in a card in the android it pops emotes I cant play help
Hi Clint City citizens!
We are not far from the next Clint City News, so, until it is published, you may have a read of the previous issues. And now, this is easier than anytime before, as all the published issues have been uploaded in the new UrbanRivals fanpage by Infiniti, Izy7 and Nidari, iClintz!
The Clint City News issues can be found here:

@Segnaro I'm new to all this, so I have A LOT To learn.
@Rowdy MOB Cr I see. Thanks for that.
Will Death Adder be added to the ban list after the weekend?
Kommandon Ld missions ???
Complete the weekly Ld missions (Ends Sunday, new ones Monday) and get lucky (You receive an Ld you don't already own).
Alguém ne consegue emprestar uma lagertha só por hoje para fazer as missões?
Here is my new prediction on Death Adder`s stats.
1/1 1*, 6/1 2*, 7/1 3*, 8/2 4*, 9/3 5* (Unlock ability at Lv 3)
Day: Dope 2, Max 12 Night: Consume 2, Min 3
Bonus: Growth: -1 Opp. Power, Min 4
I think this will make him somewhat fearsome as the leader of Dominion while creating an interesting, but not broken challenge. Can be stopped with SOA.
Dominion and nights got a major Nerf.
Bangers got a slight boost
How much time it takes to get your request accepted ?
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.
