JP GC 1.4: New Coliseum Tiers

Update 10/03/2013: Next week's coliseum, courtesy of Tarothin from the guardiancross-forum, his post will be a weekly update of the Coliseum restrictions so it will be useful!

From the look of things, the Elite Coliseums are going to continue with the theme coliseum while Special is going to get the "extreme" themes. Next week is Fire only guardians!
Update 04/03/2013: I was wrong about the 3* and below Coliseum rule continuing! It's no restriction Coliseum for special this week which means you can use any card and any number of repeated copies.

Information in JP:

Translation by Tarothin over at the guardiancross-forum:

Head over to the links above for more information. Lastly, I'll cover my thoughts on the new coliseum tiers.

New coliseums added
There are now 5 coliseums.

1. Elite coliseum - extreme
Coliseum for the most elite

2. Elite coliseum - master
Can use mighty and great guardians. Can win almighties. A coliseum for the upper ranks of the previous master coliseum and middle ranks of expert coliseum.

3. Master coliseum
Coliseum for the middle ranked master coliseum players.

4. Novice coliseum
Coliseum for beginners. In order to prevent multi account users, the rewards have been eliminated.

5. Special coliseum
Special conditions such as "Rare or lower". However the number of almighty slots are very small.

Elite - extreme is the same as current Elite from what I can see; rewards and stat/skill stones and such.

Elite - master is the same as current Master except, S+ is Almighty card reward, A+ gets Mighty card reward, no skill stones here and slightly more stat stones than Master.

Master should be the same as current Master, I didn't compare.

Novice should be the same. Again, I did not compare.

Special is what I'm guessing to be the new home for special rules like "male/female/flying/Hunting Ground specific/etc" coliseum. It started with 3* and below only and below and I think it is continuing again next week. I'm guessing these 3* rule will be the usual rule whereas the other special rules will come by as and when. I think it is good as 3* finally get its own spotlight. The prize slots are really small though: 10 S+ slots getting Almighty, 40 S slots getting Mighty, 150 A+ getting Great. All ranks get 2 SHT, stat stones but no skill stones. This 3* coliseum seem to be more suitable for beginner than Novice.
