Some used it, including Riniti who used it at Level 20.
Man, did I really? I guess I do have a level 20 Earth Elemental... bizarre. Eggy's always been my go-to. Although, I suppose, that wouldn't work in an Earth tourney...
Heckin' bizarre coming back on the forums for the first time in over five years and seeing my name.
In my opinion, though, the BL is honestly fine, from my perspective. There were probably some that were unfair, but, well, the answer to that is 'well, get those powerful characters yourself to fight back with.' Which, maybe that viewpoint negates a ban list altogether... though apparently Drakath is so OP that it would just be Drakath spam, which would be no good. I've only seen four participants total, each of which used a different character... which in my mind makes for a good tourney.
