ELO Tournament Type changes

A foretaste of changes to come in the ELO mode
Before we go ahead with any lasting changes to the ELO mode, we’d like to use the summer period to test out some of our ideas. You may have already heard that we hope to extend the list of characters banned and use these bans not only to balance up the game but also to liven up the mode and encourage you to vary your decks. And that’s why in August the list of characters banned will significantly increase and will then change from week to week. Please feel free to join in on the forum to have your say on these changes. Happy gaming to you all!

Card Highlight GLOSH!

Glosh - 6/6 with Stop: +3 power (ability) and Support: +3 attack (bonus)

- A decent 6 power (least for a Rescue). When faced against SoA, he suddenly becomes a frightening 9/6 for only 4-stars. Add 12 attack with that, and....oh god
- 6 damage (8 with fury) cuts the opponent's life by half or more. Kills with many cards like alec, Marco, Lobo, and Kerry.
- He's not fat, he's big-boned

- A high-power SoB (like Tyd and Smokey) makes this card seem a little less powerful.
- 4-stars is quite hard to budget, considering Rescue has many good 4-star and 5-stars.

Overall: 8.5/10 - Glosh can be a beast! Not only is he a decent 4-star on his own, but with his stop, he can destroy!
Also, he makes your opponent resist using their SoAs a little more, which was Rescue's weakness before. He defiently replaces Ghoub, and probably Suzie too. As for'll be hard to choose (consider both, perhaps?~)
