    Don't care that Buddy is left in the dust from the start.
    Doesn't matter that Aurora is a safer and smarter option.
    Brush aside the fact that Sledg is "a stat down" both sides (people who say Buddy is an 8/8 are full of it. He is NOT 8/8. He is 8/5 with conditional life), but doesn't have crappy confidence and is a more solid choice.
    Why?
    1. Giant mechas are awesome.
    2. Giant mechas are awesome.
    3. Giant mechas are $#&/!%@ AWESOME.
    Buddy's last three level arts are freakin sweet. Looking at his art makes me think of Pacific Rim. Thinking of Pacific Rim makes me want to watch Pacific Rim. Pacific Rim was the hypest mecha on Kaiju action ever. Sledg does not make me think of Pacific Rim. Guess who's better in Rabble's book?

    Also, combining kick-ass mecha with a name like Buddy? Yea. This card is a born winner.

    I don't care if Buddy isn't as good as most of his 5* Rescue counterparts. HE'S A GIANT BALLIN MECHA NAMED BUDDY. That alone has already moved Buddy to the top of my list of favorite Rescue cards.

    Levels 2 and 3 look like Eva Unit 0
    Level 4 looks like Eva Unit 2
    Level 5 looks (a lot) like Eva unit 1!

    Buddy [Rescue 5 star] 8p 5d, Courage: +3 Life

    • The first and only Rescue with base 8p up to this point (and wisely so imo)
    • He manages to be good yet not push any existing 5 star into retirement
    • Seriously, Sledg and Cliff are great but both are ELO banned, Reeve is better when aiming for KO but gaps less and is 8p part-time, Aurora gaps the same without needing Courage but is slightly weaker, Hax and Pastor are played differently, etc


    Release: Avalanche Warning!

    Buddy - a colossal Mecha Rescue made for Rescuing others & saving ppl
    Base stats - 8/5
    Ability - Courage +3 life

    Wardom - A monstrosity the GHEIST awakened & "upgraded" with GHEIST tech who i think wants to destroy the world smiley

    Buddy
    So we get a 5 star for Rescue again.
    Last time I saw a 5 star common for Rescue and it is still the worst Rescue card ever!
    Let's see now... rare! So this might actually NOT such in the end.

    Final form:
    Power: 8
    Damage: 5

    Ability Courage: +3Life

    A card with Damage = 8 can be easily reduced to 4 with a DR that plays on Elo.
    No pillz invested will keep the opponent in game too!
    But having Damage = 5 and +3 life guarantees a gap of 4 if wins.
    Of course Courage makes it predictable, but still this is a great ability to have.

    Some people say it is an 8/8 Rescue. NO! It is BETTER than 8/8 for the reason I mentioned above.

    SOA keeps it as am 8/5 with +12 bonus
    SOB keeps it a potential 8/8 with DR resistance if used during Courage!

    Is it good?
    Well...
    Let's see...
    Power 8 on Rescue? Marco Cr was the only card that had so high power at 5 stars (Power 9 on solo Rescue) but ONLY if Rescue were played full solo and ONLY if there was no SOA against him.

    Reeve needs that Reprisal to have such power....
    Hax also needs Courage to go to 10 power.
    Dr Norton is Elo banned... but still SOA hits him...
    Wolf needs Stop: activated and sucks...


    So... it is official.... the FIRST card on Rescue with starting Power = 8

    This is a HUGE advantage for a Rescue card.
    Buddy is better than:
    Wolf (lol)
    Sledg
    Nancy
    Cliff
    Reeve

    maybe better than Pastor, maybe not, metagame and future card releases will tell,

    and that way, this card reaches the top, to compete with Hax, Marco Cr and Aurora (that has no condition but 1 less power)

    Thus the card is valuable, playable and nice!
    I give it a 9/10 ( without courage it would be a broken 10. Now it's a broken 9 smiley )

    And these words come from the mouth of the same person than was angry about Wolf in the past.
    So yeah!
    Well done UR! THIS is great release! Kudos!

    Foa @lycaon thats so stupid an OP. if UR can make bella Ld so much better, but can't even make scott ld 5 damage, UR won't do that for buddy. he's fine where is, espeacially cuz aurora and many rescue are vulnerable to stop abilities
    Soa (second of all) I find it so cool, because I admire rescue and what they stand for. A bunch of clans just are clans bounnd with hate, whether ur rich snobby Uppers, crazy full polar (play on words with bipolar) Berzerk, or wanting revenge on clintz city like the Riots or Frozn. (ok, so there is the roots, but they all are smoking weed so....)
    Rescue is a clan that is here to help everyone, and now we have a huge A$$ robot, able to fend off kolos (so we officially will be seeing less of character bios with kolos causing issues). Just awesome
    Toa, 8/5 for any rescue is good. its basically their version of la bestia....but better!

    Buddy is pretty good, no doubt. I'm an rescue addict, but I kinda have doubts about buddy. There's Aurora, with 7\5 and +3 life. Now, whereas Buddy, he's 8\5, and courage, +3 life. Now, don't get me wrong, but they're kinda the same. If I were the creaters, I would make buddy an 8\6, and reprisal +3 life. That makes more sense.

    Right now, Buddy is, as you could say, the starter off for a combo. You put him first, or third, depending where you are, he could be easily crushed, especially if the opposing card is an Stop ability card. If you put reprisal, and 6 damage, then he would be a truly excellent card.

    The fact that he has 8 power, for a Rescue, is only then screwed over by the fact that his ability is courage based. If you play first in the match, you've basically lost.
