Will there be a holiday set this year and will it include Finn Balor? Please I have to know lol

I am fairly sure there will be a holiday set, but I would much rather get an AJ Styles, in there. If there is a holiday set I would expect something officially said soon.

You won't get a direct answer, yes or no...but creed has dropped many hints that there is one and has specifically said the next few releases will focus on the new faces in the wwe. So your wish for an AJ Styles may come true this holiday season,  especially since he officially has a card in raw.deal courtesy of Virtual 8

I’d expect to see superstars whose logos were revealed in V8. That said, I’m not expecting a big set, as V8 has barely been out a month and I haven’t played with everything I want from that set yet!

We've been designing around a one-year minimum, people who've been around long enough to show they won't get released and leave us with nothing to build future support around.

So people like Ellsworth are too short-lived to bother with.  Alexa's a bit too new, as odd as that seems, for this particular holiday set.... but rest assured you'll be seeing her next year.

I'll have to slip the podcast guys a leak or two soon... :)

I assumed Ellsworth would get nothing more than a manager card or something for Carmella. But I get the rationale, no point in wasting time on cards that will get no support in the future due to their short lived time at wwe

Title: Re: holiday set 2017
Post by: GamerZombie on November 25, 2017, 02:29:53 PM
My guess is Bayley, AJ, and Nattie. They all have logos and Nattie already has a bunch of card support. Also world champs like Balor and Mahal seem too important to miss.

Post by: CreedP on November 26, 2017, 09:10:14 PM
At this moment I'm not confirming or denying anything, other than a few months back, we had the lineup for VHS3 and nothing recent (like Ellsworth) would change that.

I will say that 2018 will bring a lot more Superstars coming up from NXT, but it's way too soon to talk about any of that yet.

Title: Re: holiday set 2017
Post by: darkdestiny91 on November 30, 2017, 12:24:47 AM
Speculating here... but there has been sort of a pattern so far...

VHS1: NXT female stars like Sasha, Charlotte

VHS2: NXT male stars like KO, Rusev (well, he did get a start at NXT after all, I think!)

VHS3: NXT tag teams (no stables like New Day) so I'm guessing Enzo & Cass, maybe Ascension, Lucha Dragons?
Title: Re: holiday set 2017

That would be tough, since they just broke up.  Also, there were a bunch of tag teams that did a lot more in NXT and on the main roster, so unfortunately I don't see them getting made.

However, I'm sure some of the concepts we tossed around for them could appear as some Zack Ryder support down the line.

I have an addiction problem.  I have not finished building Arn, NoD, and Brood, nor have I rebuilt Sin Cara, The Steiners, or Legacy. Despite all of that, one of the things I am most looking forward to is more Raw Deal on Christmas.   Last year, I woke up at 3 AM to pee and excitedly grabbed my phone just to see if anything had appeared yet.

As far as recent maybe a BreeZango w/ Tyler Breeze and Fandango or Heck a Faction Card of The Balor Club w/ Finn, Aj, Karl, and Luke would be awesome. As far as Females IDK maybe Tamina or Alicia Fox as they've been there Forever.

I've mentioned this before, but we're basically 'done' with older Superstars for a while.  We've done a lot of them, but there's a LOT of new talent coming into the WWE from the last couple years. 

(Also, a lot of the older talent has picture issues, so we've covered a lot of those with a good selection, though some we had to fudge a bit, haha.)

Expect to see a lot of NXT/WWE talent for a while, we've covered the major stars of Attitude and WCW already.

Just in case anyone missed it from my birthday thread: Gallows and Anderson WILL be in the 2017 Virtual Holiday Set.

Does this mean some Festus support???

Will Finn Balor be set up like R-Truth? Like with split personalities or will he just have two different face cards one for the Demon King and another for Finn Balor?

Good questions.  Not that we're giving anything but names away right now, though.

But this is atleast a confirmation that Balor will be in the set? Good, fantastic news!

You can live in whatever make-believe reality you want, but Balor is NOT in the set.

It's bad to assume.

Finn was gonna be in the set but after his first big playtesting game the cards just tore and he had to be set aside for a year.

*this is a joke. A bad one, but still a joke.

There is only one person in VHS3 who is not currently employed by the WWE in some fashion, but it ain't Emma ;)

I have a slight hunch it's going to be Neville...

Neville is still technically under contract ;)

As has been said - we're done with old school superstars for awhile.

In case you missed it in the latest Backlash Podcast, we revealed that Braun Strowman and The Best Wrestler in the World, a CM Punk remake, will be in Payback.
Title: Re: holiday set 2017

And yes, that means Punk is the one not-currently-contracted person in VHS3 :D

So far the set's been pretty hype! And since we're getting some corrected cards from V8B as well, I guess the holiday season's gonna be filled with quite a bit of RD.

So there's going to be a CM Punk remake in this set or are we talking about a future set?

The Best Wrestler in the World (a Punk remake) is in the holiday set that will get released very soon :)

I’m excited for him as well. Based on what previous cards he can pack, I want to remake the Shoot deck I never played with CM Punk.
AJ I’ll be building regardless of ability. He’s my number 1 guy I’m waiting for.

Judging from the size of the previous holiday sets, that probably seem like all they guys we'll be getting for VHS3...
Or is it? 😬

On a side note, can't wonder what are other card titles are there left for a Punk remake... 🤔
Title: Re: holiday set 2017
Post by: darkdestiny91 on December 22, 2017, 05:32:45 AM
VHS1: 5
Charlotte Flair
Sasha Banks
Becky Lynch
Nikki Bella TB
Brie Bella TB

VHS2: 6
Kevin Owens
Rusev
Big E
Stardust
Xavier Woods
The New Day

VHS3: 6 revealed so far
AJ Styles
The Best Wrestler in the World
Braun Strowman
Natalya
Bayley
Gallows & Anderson

Sounds pretty accurate, but hey, would be cool if we got 1 or 2 more! No matter though, the set is still pretty exciting!

Doesn't mean there's pictures to use.

Anyway, if it continues to be a 'thing' down the road, I suppose you can't say 'never', but it doesn't seem like anything worth devoting development time to, when there's already a ton of new actual talent coming up.
