So, we have 9 now....even if we get under 12, I think the best way to play this out and let people get as many games in as they can is to go Round Robin with this and let everyone play everyone and whoever is on top wins.... sound fair? We can push this till Friday too since I still need to you know.... make my deck and all.....

Well the "random revo" thing failed quite miserably :p (timing was bad too), but hey.....we got a whole new set to play with now, right? No better time to try to give this another shot!! But we'll do this a little different, to try to cut down on people pouting, taking their ball and disappearing because they didn't like their deck (admit it people it happened :p ) ......we'll do this one different!

1. Are we good with making the field v9 folk only? Or should we expand it?
2. Sign-ups will be on a first come, first serve ....if you wanna play Balor, you better be first to him! There will be no duplicates!

Hopefully we can get enough people and spin a good event for this one .....you want to do something else? Speak up now!!

Sign-ups:
Me: Neville
Niccccckkkkkk: the ascension
dilbert: American alpha
Brian: Nakamua
Drywall: Mojo Awful .... err.. Rawley Bo Dallas!
Mitch: Alexa Bliss
SG Tim: Finn Balor
Jokerfish: Tyler Breeze
MattHardyNotDie: Samoa Joe
Laflamme: Asuka
Luke Lash: Barron Corbin

Tournament Announcements / Re: What does 2019 hold for Raw Deal?
« on: February 05, 2019, 02:05:35 PM »
This might be a good place to mention any general big event ideas in one thread still too

I'm still pondering an April 6th event in the afternoon (day before Mania, get it done in time before takeover and all) and somewhere in NJ, at this point I may just pick a resturaunt I used to eat in all the time and try to reserve like 10-15 seats in the corner since they're dead Saturday afternoons (and as long as people eat there all will be happy) .....anyone gonna be in the area for Mania, so I can judge interest better?

I'll only go if it's in Allentown

We do allentown once a month, I don't think the folks coming for mania wanna add 150 miles to their weekend

Didn't mean to cut in, but also wanted to ask, was the original WCW Title belt considered a WCW card also ?

Fantasy Cards / Re: Pete Dunne
« on: January 31, 2019, 04:17:49 PM »
I really like the setup you have here, Hogtrail. One suggestion to save some space: if you replace "Suplex" with "plex" on Joint Manipulation, you can drop the "considered to have suplex in the title" line from X-Plex without changing anything else about the card, since there are no non-Tazz maneuvers that have "plex" in the title that aren't suplexes.

SuperPLEX? That card don't need no help sir......

Go for it, I won't be home until later tonight, but I've built and used both at gen con over the years and would gladly offer my input!

General Discussion: Raw Deal / Re: Ric Flair vs The Nature Boy
« on: January 28, 2019, 10:58:14 AM »
There are pros and cons for both, and both get all the amazing Flair cards (though Flair does come up short in the "specific move" department (especially in Classic)

But let's see if we can spell this out for ya and see which you prefer:

Flair:
-- Game-changing ability.... the power to wipe out soo many cards (like Frankie Ho and Surge, or Sustained Damage) and a list of so many "gotta have in play" cards (though through revisions, there's a cost to wiping out low fort moves and keeping the opponent off the board)
-- NOT a legend, so things like Shoot Lock-Up don't hurt him as much
-- not being WCW opens up his pre-match to many more options

Nature Boy:
-- Legend support (Legendary defense is game and life changing since you can cycle step, escape and break the hold as in-deck stoppers with use of the "Strip Club" venue), Cowboy Bob is an awesome late game stopper as well as living the good life can damn near scoop your ringside pile
-- Starting Hand Size ....it blows up just in dumping WCW and Natch specifics alone....
-- WCW Support, starting the game with likely 3F and making them discard for each WCW card you play.....it adds up (also Natch has so many "doesn't take a slot" cards, playing Flanked by Arena Security is great to protect your starting hand size
-- Also as good as Flair's ability is on offense, the defensive ability on Natch .... my God.... they DTTAH your sustained.....sure ... you can get that pesky restricted use out of your ring.... they commish you?? Discard divine instead!

In my breakdown I may have slighted a bit more towards Natch than Flair (Personally I like Natch more), but both are excellent choices, just keep in mind you won't get a ton of room in the deck for many moves, so you gotta make the ones you get COUNT that's all!

Deck Reviews - Virtual / Re: B2B's Nidia, World Championship 2017 Edition

What is your reponse to losing a back to basics vs some type of 3MW type effect?

Practical answer: 3MW isn't good enough to be played on a high-end championship level like that

I would think if that was a concern he'd have just packed 2-3 of them

Damn right! LOL

On that note … how far are you guys from Parsippany? I should be back out that way in Oct (Chiller Theatre Expo). Wish I was going to be there for their April event, but it's the same weekend I'm getting married.

I had two jobs up there today actually.... it's closer than the last place you were!

I'd literally never heard of Venmo until you asked about it.  I'll try to remember to check on it.

CREED

That was honest to God the same reaction I had when the first guy asked me to pay in it  :laugh:

It's a mobile app basically, it's HUGE in the ice hockey community ....heh

My fatal flaw as a card game player is my inability to read the cards in their entirety.

Back before I knew about TCO, my playgroup made fantasy cards for each of us. One of my cards allowed me to ignore a sentence in a card for this exact reason.

It's RMS too  8)

Counter-point: that means even if Neville has plenty of F and doesn't need the discount, the maneuver still qualifies for being reversed by Your Reach Exceeds Your Grasp (unless it was an RMS maneuver).

Untrue, reach/grasp can only reverse a card if you don't have the fortitude to play it (or a multi volley)

(example: it can't revers shoot forearm if you have 10F and are behind making it 0F to play)

It's by design so that in case you're a BASH deck (as an example) the card isn't totally useless to you :)

Its shorthand for it, but basically if I'm at 10F and you're at 0, you hide the card and get a free applicable maneuver on me

Seeing this game live on virtually in a more balanced world then it ever had in print is reward enough for me, this game has given back to me at least wayyy more than I've put into it and I'm grateful for that!

"Considered to be" is still a modification of his card so RMS channels it's best Ambrose voice and gives a big NOPE to it....
