Title: The next set has the potential to be one of the biggest sets in the Virtual line
Post by: XtremeWRATH on January 24, 2018, 05:40:05 PM
Just think of the possibilities.

Finn Balor
Shinske Nakamura
Bobby Roode
Asuka
Alex Bliss
The Revival
The Bar(Cesaro/Sheamus)
Maybe with the talk of Batista coming back a Batista remake as well

What do you guys think?

Yep! Lots of potential for future sets, but we just barely got V8 and an awesome holiday set. I still have at least 5-6 guys from those sets I want to build first. I’m in no rush for another set just yet!

I dunno have you seen V5? 500 cards and tons of star power as well.

I think there's way too much assumption in the original post, heh.

Also, 500 cards was a terrible idea, we've had to revise SO MUCH of it.  Bigger isn't always better.

Im just a bit excited for what the future holds for Virtual Raw Deal.

On a random note when we eventually get Finn it would be cool if we had Balor on one side and the Demon on the other side. Just a thought  :)

That would be up to the player, documents can only be printed on one side.  If someone wanted to figure out how to do that on their own (probably just glue one to each side of a card) that'd be up to them.

Any thoughts of giving Revo a little love? Need not be superstars, but maybe deck building cards to spice up the game. VR5 deck building was really good in changing the meta. Looking forward to something like that in the near future :)

No plans for Revo, the demand is for Classic on the whole.  We'll see how it looks in another year or two though.

Aww thats sort of a bummer. There are new players picking up the format from Canada and US,  thought a few revo cards would continue the wave. Even so, can we have at least some promo that can be released during and after gencon, similar to the PPVs :)
Title: Re: The next set has the potential to be one of the biggest sets in the Virtual line
Post by: CreedP on January 24, 2018, 09:29:33 PM
I'll be honest.  I can't speak for everyone, but it does get a little tiring supplying people with things, and still seeing people with their hand out who don't take 'No' for an answer.  It will probably be one of the factors that finally sees the train of free cards and sets run out of steam, just being blunt about it.

I'm glad to hear there's a resurgence in Revolution play, and VR5 was designed to bring about significant changes to the environment, and give Superstars that will keep people busy for quite some time.  Ultimately though, it's a secondary interest for the playerbase as a whole.  Essentially, we're supporting two games and trying to balance a third that combines the first two.... all for zero income for our efforts (and a bit of expense on my end, haha).

So - please, be considerate.  It's great to hear what people are interested in, those 'top 5 guys I wanna see' lists are neat every so often, and good for gauging how close we are to the pulse of what people are interested in.  But the guys who listed 30 people, or who expect new content for specifically what they're interested in above everything else.. that's just not feasible.  It wasn't when the game was in print, and much less so now.

Just some sage words of advice for everyone, not trying to specifically make anyone feel bad.  We're happy to see that game which went out of print in 2007 has stuck around for another 10 years, and doubled the number of Superstars in it.  We'll keep it going a while longer, at least, as long as there's enough interest to warrant it.

So yeah, let's hear it - who are people interested in seeing out of the new faces that have come up?

Newer stars I'd like to see

1. Bobby Roode
2. Finn Balor
3. Shinsuke Nakamura
4. Asuka
5. Samoa Joe

And maybe for a promo star.....WOKEN Matt Hardy!

Seeing as Matt Hardy already has a million cards you don't have to do a full set obviously, a Superstar card obviously limiting what cards he can pack, and a couple WOKEN cards....bada bing....bada boom!


Title: Re: The next set has the potential to be one of the biggest sets in the Virtual line
Post by: The P6 Peep on January 24, 2018, 10:57:46 PM
Well... I really like the idea that XtremeWRATH had about Balor... that sounds cool... to have Balor on one side and The Demon King on the other, maybe with some cool Backstage mechanism that flips it at a certain time. You could print both cards and pack them in a clear sleeve back to back. You would have to decide on which to start the match with based on the opposing abilities, and then something good or bad triggers the change, whatever the creators decide. That sounds really fun.

That being said about Balor... I really agreed with The Hurricane's Top 5 WISH list for the most part, with Roode being the least favorite for me.

My Houston League, the P6 Peeps, would really like to see:
1) Enzo Amore (although his future is all but dead in the WWE now going forward, I seriously hope he is innocent), he was a lot of fun.
2) Bo Dallas (Don't ask me why, but ever since his logo was included on that V8 card, we have a couple of guys salivating, lol)
3) Nia Jax  (Another couple of managers in my league would love to build her)

...and I know you said no old guys Creed, but these next 2 suggestions are very relevant in 2017 & 2018 WWE:

4) Kurt Angle / RAW GM
5) Shane McMahon / Commissioner

Honorable mentions : Elias & Jason Jordan
Title: Re: The next set has the potential to be one of the biggest sets in the Virtual line
Post by: CreedP on January 24, 2018, 11:37:42 PM
Enzo is a no-go for us, sorry.  A shame from a design standpoint, as the guy created tons of material.  But we're not even a little bit comfortable with including him in the game.

As far as 'old guys', I didn't say they weren't relevant, I just said we weren't making them any time soon.  :)

Bo Dallas could be interesting though, and Nia Jax has potential, once we get a few other female Superstars into the game who have accomplished more than Nia has.

As to Mr. Bálor... suffice to say we have a plan.  ;)

I want to say something, just in case there is any doubt how we feel down here in Houston about TCO.

I know we gave you guys so much praise when we first joined TCO 7 years ago after we started playing and appreciating REV 4 & REV 5, but we haven't said how much we appreciate you guys recently for ALLLLL that you do year round for RAW DEAL across the world. I speak for all of my fellow P6 Peeps in Houston, when I say we sincerely appreciate you guys beyond what words can express.
We have been playing here for the better part of 16 years... ever since our P6 Peeps founders were handed their first promotional cards of the Rock and Stone Cold by Mike and Barron themselves at WWF Fan Access, the day before the greatest Wrestlemania of all time, Wrestlemania 17 here in Houston. And thanks to YOUR efforts and passion at TCO Virtual.. we have new generations of RAW DEAL managers playing with us now and the game lives on, stronger than ever!
 
What TCO has been able to accomplish to not only keep RAW DEAL alive and kicking, but to take the foundation that Barron and Mike laid, and build and evolve the game into a much broader scope of play, with strong balance. You guys have went through painstaking efforts to constantly go back and repair broken superstars and give other weaker superstars the boost they need to compete with today's stars.

The look of the Virtual cards to me is nothing short of works of art. I don't know how many other TCO members have ever tried to learn Corel Paintshop or other graphics software, and then to try to create a Superstar or Virtual card.... but I am one of those TCO Members... I have even had a few cards good enough to be adopted and revamped by the Virtual Team here and released in a few sets (Mae Young's She's a Diva-saurus! & "...the Sweeter the Juice!", and Mexicool's Juan Deere Tractor to name a couple).... and I can tell all of you that don't already know, that it takes a heck of a lot of time, effort and commitment to design and create EACH of these beautiful cards that the Virtual TCO Team works tirelessly to provide for us all.

Now, the creative aspects of the cards that come out each set, are also nothing short of brilliant. I am not sure who the main brainchild or two is at TCO that comes up with the Superstar abilities and new arsenal and backstage cards, but I am amazed at how they always seem to have something fresh and fun to offer, with a new spin on a rule or deck building override... and they almost always make the abilities and Superstars play in a way that is fitting to their in-ring personas and true to kayfabe. This creative team really manages to show off how awesome RAW DEAL really is and what the true potential is of this BEAST of a CCG!
Do you see other CCGs coming up with fresh ideas that are rarely redundant like TCO does? Look at Pokemon for example.... all they do is release 3 new sets a year (which is almost the same speed as our TCO Virtual Raw Deal brothers do), and yet all the creators of Pokemon do, is keep recycling abilities and trainers over and over to different characters set after set, stealing all the creative aspects from previous releases, which is super boring.... and NOTHING COMPARED to what the TCO team produces each year FOR FREE!!!

It is still NOTHING short of amazing what you guys do and have done consistently over the past decade. And the fact that you police things too and keep everyone up to date on rules and card conflicts,... and you go back and errata cards to reflect updates and minimize loopholes or exploitations,... and the art team updates the artwork and offers alternate Superstar artwork to reflect changes to wrestlers in the current WWE all the time... it's overwhelming what you have done.... It really is, ESPECIALLY when you put into perspective the salaries you all take home from TCO to do all this, lol.. which is N-O-T-H-I-N-G.

Sometimes we think about you guys locked up in a basement somewhere creating Raw Deal cards all day, wondering what happened to your spouses, children, and loved ones?... wondering if your catching as much grief from all of them over your unwavering devotion to RAW DEAL, as much as the rest of us managers, who are merely playing the game and enjoying all the fruit of your labors, have over the years.

Soooo...... THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.... THANK YOU ALL... Thank you CREED, DAEVA, MITCH, TIM ... and all the unsung heroes of the TCO Virtual Raw Deal Team whose names I don't know.... for this decade of brilliance and the evolution of one of the greatest CCGs ever made... you have brought and continue to bring countless hours of fun, smack talk, and rules arguments to us here in Houston!

-Jay / P6 Commish

P.S.: I am serious CREED, sign me up as an official TCO Donor. I have been asking you for years, but I finally want to put my money where my mouth is and do my part to help the movement, the cause, the fight, .... and better late then never.... lol.. so on behalf of the P6 Peeps, thank you again and tell me where to send my donation!!!   :D

No offence taken Creed. As players we get carried away. You've been doing this for such a long time, I think you know too damn well we are appreciative of all the effort you and your crew put into the game. Heck, I even donated twice.. Guess I get a tag then?? ;)

That said, we are really passionate about the format so feel free and PM us if you need help with idea generation, playtesting, or general feedback as a whole. We want to do more than just mention some names or donate, and without a doubt that's what everyone will be willing to do too regardless of format, play style or region.

I know there are going to be lists of 10-30 people from some guys so I'll keep mine short. 5 people I feel is fair.

In order:

Pete Dunn
Tye Dillinger
Aiden English
Chad Gable
Kassius Ohno

I kept this NXT heavy as I'll be quite honest: Raw and Smackdown have been awful for awhile. I hope things change soon.

1. Jack Gallagher - unique character and unorthodox wrestling style
2. Drew Gulak - wasn't a fan of him at the start, but boy did his powerpoint presentation sway my decision!
3. Cedric Alexander - Probably the main highlight of 205live now and for the near future

Is it weird that I like Drew Gulak mainly because he reminds me of Jason Sudeikis and because he uses a dragon sleeper with body scissors (The Gu-Lock) as a finishing move?

He could also totally be a distant relative of Ross Geller from Friends.

Honestly, Creed and co could call it a day and never make another Virtual set again. While that would indeed be a sad day, I could go on playing Virtual Raw Deal happily with a huge variety of decks to test and play. They've balanced the game to damn near perfection now and they've given us matchups we thought we'd never see. Other than the odd attitude era midcarder that didn't make the cut, we have almost everything we need. Except Head-Cheese Damnit! Lol

Tell ya what, I'll make this promise to you guys.  Whenever the time comes that we just can't muster up the ambition and/or time for more sets, I will make sure that Steve Blackman is finally made.

(And no, don't list everyone ever hoping I'll squeeze them in too, heh)  Tim's done so much for this game, not just in the visual component, but laying out some great designs like The Shield & Wyatt Family plus their individual members.  All he's really asked for is Bayley and Steve Blackman, and we're halfway there.  :D

Creed-

I apologize if this has been suggested before (I'm still newbs to this place) but has there ever been a thought of doing much smaller, more frequent releases? Like say every 2 months there's one new superstar? I'm not trying to sound all super greedy but I don't have my head behind the curtain; I don't know if this would make things easier/less stressful on the team or would just create a headache in the long term.

Yeah, those numbers could be tweaked for sure but I think it's a decent thought.

:D I mean, at this point we've put out 2 sets a year for the past 3 years, one 'big' release, one 'holiday set'. Trying to fit in  in more than that would be a lot, and ultimately releasing one-two superstars every couple months instead would oddly be -less- content overall

1. Alexa Bliss
2. Austin Ares(I know he is gone from WWE but I always loved him)
3. Bobby Roode
4. Tyler Bates
5. Pete Dunn

IF anything...doubt they'd give him a new superstar for Woken Matt Hardy...maybe a backstage and/or prematch that alters what you can/can't play. I'd be ok with that, Matt already has a decent sized set, as well as a remake AND apart of 3 tag teams


There's also like 80 Chris Jericho's......so that argument is OBSOLETE!

 I think a promo star would be more than enough. Superstar card that states you can pack select Matt Hardy cards like his maneuver cards + 2 or 3 WOKEN cards. It would be MARVELOUS!

Yep would be great. Have the hardy compound be the venue of course. And ultimate deletion as a stip. I really wish jeff would bring willow and itch weed. My buddy did a fanatsy set where he could switch between his personalities.

The ones being teased right now off the top of my head are:
1. Emma
2. Enzo & Cass
3. Carmella
4. Bo Dallas
5. Adam Rose?
6. Curtis Axel
7. Ascension
8. Samoa Joe
9. Tyson Kidd
10. Kevin Thorn

Out of these, I really hope to get Joe, Carmella, Ascension, Bo, Curtis and Emma soon. But of course, I do hope we get some surprises that haven't seen much teasing yet like Asuka and Nakamura but they can wait. Can't wait for December to arrive faster so we can get our holiday set fix for the year!  :laugh:

Whoever it is, I'm sure we'll all be glad! Some will just be glad-er than others.

Just wondering... if there is ever a new plan in the near (or far) future where there will be an expansion focusing more on deck building cards instead of superstars? something like new tech or like the classic line of cards from V4 to V8 thus far.
Title: Re: The next set has the potential to be one of the biggest sets in the Virtual line
Post by: CreedP on April 19, 2018, 07:19:19 PM
Not really, to be honest.  Making non-SS cards is really difficult with so many Superstars to exploit them.  "Oh crap, we forgot Jamie Noble + X breaks the game!" or "New Day wins in 2 turns with this?  Aw man, back to the drawing board"  :)

There is an idea to make Cruiserweights stand out, but that's based around one (maybe two) cards, more on that down the road.

I'll definitely mention a hard pass on one Superstar though, we won't be releasing Enzo Amore or Enzo & Cass, sorry.  As a designer, it's sad because their set was fairly creative and fit the two characters, but it's just not something we're comfortable doing.  That's okay, though, there are SO many new Superstars coming in that the loss won't be felt, and I suspect Cass will find his own way in time.  :)

Meanwhile, I'll confirm two very obvious and expected names:  Finn Bálor and Shinsuke Nakamura.

Oh damn i forgot about Emma, shame they let her go considering how talented she is. She’s another one that would be awesome to get. Part of me says we wont get her cause she was released a while ago but then again we got a new Punk so who knows.

On a side note i think we can count out getting a Rich Swan set at this point as well.

Yeah, Rich Swann is tricky, since there were a lot of allegations, and his wife is now denying a bunch of it.  That's a toughie, as much as I want to see him in the game from meeting him at PWG a few years back.  Ah well.

In the meantime, I'll spoil this much...  I had a plan to make a subset of NXT called Arrival, for those Superstars on that first card, either giving them a card or making that Superstar (except CJ Parker, cuz.. yeah.  haha)  So it's very likely you'll see some names that aren't in the WWE any longer, but hopefully they look and play well enough that people won't be too upset.  :)

I've seen this type of sentiment come up before, and it irritated me then. Turns out it still irritates me now.

The development team's responsibility isn't to pick a single player of the game, ask them what they and only they want, and produce exactly those things. Not you, not me, not even Creed, and he's the guy doing most of the design work. Just because you personally would be fine without Mojo or the Ascension doesn't mean that everyone shares that opinion, and the opinion of those who want to see them in the game is just as valid as yours. And besides, some of my favorite decks were of superstars who I could take or leave, on TV. (The best example of this for me was Big Poppa Pump. I find him boring as sin, but his ability is awesome.) Sometimes, it's worth taking a look at those guys, because maybe a great deck idea comes to mind for a guy who you otherwise don't have an interest in.

We all have a choice here: be happy new superstars are being made, or be annoyed that they aren't exactly the ones we would create given our druthers. Why, when the choice is between happiness and annoyance, would you actively choose to be annoyed?

But we do the best we can to cover what seems best for everyone.

Unless I’m misreading, this seems like it was an idea to have these in addition to the upcoming Superstars in the next set.
So it would be neat to see these superstars treated like Promo Superstars. Superstar card and an accompanying 2-3 specifics. Most of these already have a card in the game as well, and their new cards could give support to existing superstars. Or non specifics that have their name to give a larger effect (/similar to factions perhaps).
There are plenty of options, and there’s nothing wrong with adding superstars to the game when the opportunity is exists. Especially when it fits a theme like they do here around the first NXT “ppv”.

Post by: CreedP on April 23, 2018, 03:24:07 PM
"Unless I’m misreading" Kinda, yeah.   ;D

These are all full Superstars, the original idea was a holiday set type package for just that initial 6 Superstars (kudos to scouting report, as it is accurate!) with the single card support to the others already in the game.  Then V9 would be 'the rest' and the support for Superstars in general, but instead we're just folding it into a single big set like normal.

What was the reason for the combining of the sets? That would have been nice pacing for more frequent, smaller sets. I’m guessing playtesting and a busy first half of the year are causes.
Also, can we safely guess that the released superstars featured in the upcoming set also wrestled at NXT Arrival?
Title: Re: The next set has the potential to be one of the biggest sets in the Virtual line
Post by: CreedP on April 23, 2018, 07:19:50 PM
A few of the Arrival guys just weren't up to snuff, Emma in particular came our so much more poorly than expected, you'd think we made an Emmalina superstar!  :P

So we could either hold things up and retool them, then go back to PT (all while things were slowed down as I moved, Real Life Interferes and all that)... or we could get the testers started on the other guys, and we'll come back to the Arrival dudes once they are retooled.

Better progress made this way.  :)

My last question was asking if the released superstars in V9 were ones featured in Arrival, but your Emma comments kinda shot that idea down.

I like the give them stuff now to playtest option. Not sure how anyone else feels about it.

To be clear, the Arrival guys were presented for testing, then my life got flipped turned upside down... so now they are something like Part 1 of V9, and the PT team is working on Part 2.  When that's squared away, we should have part 1 properly rebooted and improved, so eventually it's all Virtual 9 in the end.

So yeah, you nailed 6 of the Superstars and I've announced 2 others.  That leaves 14 - (6 + 2) = 6 Superstars, and when you figure the time frame that this was designed from, the last 6 names won't be that surprising.  :)

Keith,

It's less about the date and more about the theme, "NXT Takeover" is the name of the set, so it's safe to say these are all Superstars new to the WWE (as opposed to nostalgia acts like most of V8), coming up through NXT.  I think they've all hit the main roster by now, in one form or another.

And the 'bigger' the name, the more likely their inclusion in this set.

I get what you're trying to say, Tim, but that's just factually incorrect. Ms. Fox in particular is hamstrung by her relevance (or lack thereof), but we don't discriminate against including Superstars because we don't like them, as we've previously indicated in this post.

Seriously, we'd make her if she gained relevance again, but there's so many new people doing so much more, having angles and catchphrases etc, that I doubt we'll get to miss Fox.

So we get them DREAMS OF PIPE Superstars in the Game kinda like THE WHOLE ENFORCE CARD OF COLE/COACH/FINKLE????? As was either Jonathan Coachman or Howard Finkle gonna be Solo Superstars IDK but they got an Enforcer so you could group them by Stable like:
ENZO/Enzo&Cass/Big cASS
Alicia Fox/Emma/IDK another Female
Steve Blackman/Al Snow/Head Cheese

Also an IDEA w/ the Finn Thing you could Make both The Demon King and Finn Balor as Stars w/ the Same Ability and everything and add on the DEMON KING Card you can't pack stuff the Ref' The Balor Club like any card that has to do w/ AJ Styles/Finn Balor/Anderson/Gallows

IDK
As you could call The SET of Superstars whom were gonna be in it but never got made til now GREAT BALLS OF FIRE!! Kinda like how you did the Whole New LEGENDS of THE WWE SET.

FYI - I said this before, but I guess it was missed.  We are NEVER making Enzo (with or without Cass) any more than we're supporting Benoit any further than he was.  Sorry, we have standards, and real world crimes don't sit well with us.

Also, we have so many new Superstars emerging that we wouldn't waste a second slot on another version of Bálor, we just have the means to play him as 'Balor Club' leather jacket guy, or the Demon (King).

DarkDestiny - you're on the right track, without reviewing I think you're the closest on the remaining names.

Sorry to hijack the thread here, but this pisses me off.  He very much did NOT beat a woman.  Check your facts, please, and don't spread bad information about people.  It's not very nice, any more than you'd like rumors started about you that you're a child molester or some other horrible thing.

Short version - during a heated argument with yelling, his wife freaked and grabbed the phone to call the police, he took the phone away.  Technically under Florida law, that's 'interfering with contacting law enforcement' or something like that, which is a felony.  (EDIT:  "Witness tampering" is the official charge)  Both sides agree he didn't hit or otherwise harm her physically. It's too bad the dirt sheets went for the 'big headline' of domestic violence rather than reporting the facts correctly, then people in the made assumptions and jumped to conclusions, and now his career is over.

But yeah, apples and oranges.  End rant, lol.

.....

Back on topic, confirming what Eric said, they'll have two names to confirm tomorrow.  :)

I'll confirm he is not in Virtual 9.  However, I'm thinking our Holiday Set this Xmas could be 205 Live, and he would be good for that.

Sadly, he didn't do much in his WWE time (between injuries and such) but he's one of those guys who should get made because we're able.  Much like when they got Goldberg in during Divas Overload, despite his WWE time/accomplishments being limited - while Aries isn't on the same scale, I'm sure the point is clear, heh.

Don't want to offend you Creed, but speaking of Enzo and check your facts. The police doesn't longer determines against him as there are not enough evidence. Never judge a man until he's proven guilty.
It's pretty sad he will not make it into RD because he was a great entertainer. But I understand and respect your point.

Warrior was a really bad wrestler. But he simply had IT. I loved him as a child and to this day he's still my all-time fave besides Edge, because he was the reason I began to watch Wrestling in 1990. I remember that my parents always allowed me to stay up and let me watch WWF because I wanted to see the Warrior.

Last time the same couple people pushed for the Oddities, there was a poll in Discord about putting them in.  The people voted 2-to-1 against it.

Just sayin'.

But really that's a different case, as they could be made without any moral objections, but their priority is fairly low.  If the game lasts long enough to do more 'nostalgia' stuff, it's not impossible, but there's SO much new talent coming in to catch up to.

Fair enough.
Back on track, Carmella sounds posible, specially considering she got support last set. Also, taking in consideration that old superstars that are not active today, like The Vaudevillains, are on the set, my money is (still) on Adam Rose coming out eventually.

Adam Rose's set should come out in some fashion, though it might be for another Superstar.   We have some ideas... :)

Enzo & Cass's set would be a bit more challenging, since it was specifically designed for two very different teammates.  Most members of a team are somewhat similar (Revival, Good Brothers, AOP, Undisputed Era) so it would be tough to match it up, but we'll keep a look out. Hate to see good ideas go to waste.

No need to point anything out.  She was on the show, but not in a major capacity, that's why she doesn't get a lot of support for the 'diva' stuff anyway.

Last I heard, Alexa wasn't prominently featured either, same thing.

EDIT:  Ugh, stupid 'new page', haha:

That's actually her main mechanic IMO, heh.  She'll start out with a 'Bubbly Personality', but at some point it can become 'All About Me', at which point 'The Real Emma' emerges.

The two types play off her primary ability differently, with different perks for each.

I BO-lieve everyone is HYPED about this set. I may be a LONE WOLF, when saying this, but I DEFY GRAVITY with pure excitement! I dont know if I'm READY, WILLING, AND GABLE to wait any longer. But if I complain I maybe be sent to the WASTELAND. I will try to stay quite MANLY as I wait, or maybe I'll waste time taking SELFIES. There is just something inside me, like a DEMON that may come out. This waiting is just a MUSCLE BUSTER that hurts like a ton of LOW BLOWS. But in the end, I think NO ONE IS READY for V9 ;)

Something like this:

Quote
You can play face-up cards under this card as if from hand, if applicable.
When your opponent would choose cards in your Ring, Backlash, or hand for his effects, you may instead turn 1 face-up card under this card face-down, and choose a different card in the same area.
When there are 3+ cards face-down under this card, your maneuvers are +1 Stun Value  and you are considered to have +#F for playing them, where # is equal to the number of cards face-down under this card.

Also, did someone call for a Constable?

So, when I take a strike from Shinsuke and I decide to ACE Sustained Damage.

Do I:
1. take the reduced damage twice?
2. take the reduced damage once, then the full damage (which I can sustain again)?

eg. Shinsuke hits a Dirty Low Blow TB on me, I use SD to reduce the damage to 0 by discarding 1 card, do I take 0, then have to proc SD again for the next 2 damage or do I take 0 damage twice?

My guess is it’s similar to multi, however you don’t stop it with cards that say completely. I’m also wondering if it should say “successfully play” or if it works like panic moves.

Sustained Damage triggers immediately before you take damage. Nakamura makes two separate instances of the maneuver's damage, so you Sustain down each instance separately. (For the inevitable "which Damage level do I follow-up off of?" question: both; in practice, only the higher one will matter.)

Each instance of damage from Nakamura's Ability needs to be reversed separately from Arsenal; stopping the first from Arsenal doesn't negate the second. (Reversing either instance on the overturn will end the turn once both instances are dealt.)

Nakamura needs to signal that he intends to deal damage twice before his opponent gets a chance to reverse. If the opponent renders the card unsuccessful, it can't deal damage at all, and Nakamura's Ability is wasted (apart from the card cycling).

If Asuka's opponent's hand is completely empty when her maneuver is unsuccessful, the opponent will simply draw a card.

This is what deava said under my rules questions section
"The second Damage application is identical to the first when it comes to reversal restrictions, etc. It's still Damage from the qualifying maneuver, it's an exact duplicate of the first."

So with that ruling revo would do nothing.

Don't hold your breath. The RMS won't let you fiddle with the number of times a maneuver can deal damage (just like Batista can't make an RMS reversal deal damage 0 times).

Also, we're still fiddling with Nakamura in playtesting, so take everything so far with a grain of salt.

Confirming Daeva's last note, we intentionally use the public spoilers as an opportunity to catch things we might have missed, and make corrections before final release.  I wouldn't start planning your 2019 Worlds deck with the new guys just yet... :D

Any hints of next update?

I know it will be ready when it is ready... at the same time I’ve been refreshing this daily.
Really don’t mean to rush/offend anyone!

Just kind of excited  ;D

Goes for a lot of us. Really can't wait to hear when we can expect to see more of V9, yet it made my heart sink a little regarding Creed's previous message.

Pretty sure he’s not saying that they won’t be ready before then, just that there may be a change or two still incoming.  Also support can make a big difference in how it plays vs. what it seems like from their ability.

We had some juicy spoilers on the Backlash Podcast's latest episode! Would Eric and Scott put up the text version of the potential cards we might have in the set (I say potential since we can't be sure it's the final version of the cards that will be released :P)

Let's keep the v9 hype train alive!

Also, we're still fiddling with Nakamura in playtesting, so take everything so far with a grain of salt.

Just speculation
Her ability+her backstahge makes me think she's getting a card that makes her manuvers harder to reverse

*cough*playrestrictionisathing...*cough*

This may be quite interesting if it's a play restriction for her that's superstar-specific. We've not seen much of those in the game so far (most notorious being Backed by SmackDown GM Vickie Guerrero) so this is exciting news! However, there will be a need to have some counters for those if not it can get quite NPE-inducing.

Nothing has been said anywhere else. It’ll likely be shared here or a new post once it’s known.

I know "it's ready when it's ready" but I really hope a suggestion can be heard.

Even if TCO would not be releasing the new superstars, would it be too much to ask about the new support for existing superstars?

Post by: CreedP on November 12, 2018, 07:51:58 AM
The superstars are close to being finished, unlike the support cards which haven't fully been designed yet - but it still takes time to do.  College also takes time.  One of these things will provide a better career for myself, and improve my ability to take care of my family, that thing obviously gets priority.

Sorry to disappoint you for taking so long, I'll be sure to refund the money you spent on the set.   ;D

Thank you for the update Creed. Hopefully it's released by year end. But no pressures. We can relate to you pursuing your priorities. We just hope it'll be in time as a holiday gift to us.   ;D

It's nice to hear about this. Kinda surprised hearing the support isn't fully designed yet, but superstars are. Would love to see them soon! Cheers, Creed and good luck with college, man!

It shouldn't be that surprising; support takes feedback about the Superstar in mind. New Superstar sets are designed whole-cloth and tuned from there, so that can be done sets in advance.

Ah I see. Was of the opinion that since existing superstars already affect the game in some way or another, it's much easier to playtest new material for them in that space, rather than introducing new superstars to the mix which probably makes testing harder since it's more difficult to judge if that breaks anything from new mechanics and all.
