Isabella Officially Banned!

Post by GipFace » Tue Oct 04, 2011 9:55 am

Isabella will be officially banned on January 9th, 2012. Until that date, Isabella will be optionally banned in Unity Ruleset 2.0. (30 days, fog off, clear weather, 1K income)

The Unity Ruleset Committee has come to a majority agreement to ban Isabella by a vote of 1-0 with 0 abstaining. In order too [sic] ease into this decision and respect the largest Advance Wars tournament on the horizon, the ban will be optional until after GipFace's Holiday Tournament. Therefore, on January 9th, it will no longer be optional and all Unity Ruleset events will be Isabella banned. Until that time, users may use the Unity Ruleset 2.0 in either form: Isabella Banned or Isabella Allowed.

This was not a decision made lightly. This is a topic that has dominated the community for many years and far too long. The URC has taken into account many things, among them: community polls on GameFAQs and Wars World News over the last 2 years, discussions with some of the top players and minds in the community, and most of all, user created data/charts that have kept tabs on the prevalence of Isabella at the less than 500 tournaments held yearly. It is important to note that each member of the URC who voted had their own reasons, so any number of factors may have influenced their decision. We hope this will begin a new era in the Advance Wars community, and while we are sure this decision will cause controversy and discussion, we also feel it will ultimately be for the best for the community in the coming years.

Please note: This ban affects tournaments in the US and Canada - as that is the scope of the Unity Ruleset Committee. In addition, this ban is for both 1v1 and 2v2 play.

Why does this sound familiar?

Whatever, if Isabella is going to obsolete no fewer than 3 COs out of 10 others (forget Caulder) among other problems, she at least would deserve it. Of course, whether a ban is necessary here (aside from Caulder, obviously) is questionable in the first place.
