I currently have a mono-high risk The Revival built (despite their tagline No Flips, Just Fists), with Blindside Elbow Drops, Technical Stomps/Splashs and lots of Ready to Fight.

We are on to the Final Four! Best of luck gentlemen. You have one week!

Round 2 has wrapped up. We're into round 3 now. You have until Monday to get your matches in! I'll tag everyone with a pending match in Discord.

Round 1 is now officially over. You all have until next Monday morning to complete Round 2. Good luck participants!

Round one is complete! See updated bracket in main post.

Search user Eric RD. He has plenty of our events up there.

Query - If I have a bye and my second round opponent has a bye, and we wish to schedule our second round match for this week, can we do so or do you want us to wait until the next round opens?

Go for it, I've advanced the byes, so only two people have to await an outcome.

Round 1 Bracket has been posted at the bottom of the main page. Everyone was assigned a random number in Excel, then imported to the seeding bracket.

Due to numbers, 10 people get a first round bye. It was either that or have 12 people have a "qualifying match", both had the same result, so i just threw the byes in.

Contact your opponent and let's have fun crowning the first King of TCO!

For the sole reason of game length, I am so happy this never saw the light of day!

Hello all!

The online scene has been hopping recently, while most of us face stay at home orders over the last two months. Having just completed an online event, the community is clamoring for more!

So, without further ado, I'm announcing The King of TCO Tournament presented by the Backlash Podcast!

Here are the details:
1. Format: Virtual Classic
2. Games are to take place on OCTGN, the only online system that supports the entire VC library.
3. Single elminination, either 16 or 32 player. If we get close to 32, we may hand out a few "bye"s for the first round. Pairings will be created randomly.
4. Pairings will be posted Monday and you have one week to complete your match-up. Failure to do so will result in double elimination. Please be aware of this before committing to the event. If you are the player unable to make times work, you may also forfeit.
5. Official results will be posted here, but feel free to use Discord too.
6. To register for TCO, please first join the Discord Channel: and then message Eric RD and he'll set you up.

Please DO NOT use the following superstars, as they were used in the last event:
Pete Dunne
Sid Vicious
Vickie Guerrero
Luke Harper
Braun Strowman
Johnny Gargano
The Brood
The Crippler

Please sign up with your superstar below, first come, first served in the superstar picking. Alternatively, you can PM me your superstar and I will just post your name below and can keep track to ensure there are no duplicate superstars as there will be no duplicates allowed. Sign up cutoff will be Monday when I post the first round pairings.

I almost forgot the most important part! The prizes! Who doesn't love prizes? There are two of them. Winner chooses 1, 2nd place gets the other.

1) A Foil Alternate Art Shield Face Card that was exclusively given out at the 2019 North American Championship.
2) The card "Backlash" with Eric's and I's mug on it.

Let the games begin and have some fun!

I will start by entering myself with John Morrision.

I’d add Dirty Taker, since his reversal can search for it. I personally ran Back Body Drops and 3 set-ups in my No Way Out decks, that way it always kept 6 cards in my arsenal (with Thrust Knee Lift). Man, this decks reminds me of the Classic days.

Re Judo Chokes - maybe use The Games ability to put them on top of arsenal then use a turning The Match Upside Down?

I don't believe Test can pack Too Dynamic to Hold Down.

Why not?

Virtual Deck Reviews / Back to Basics Dolph Ziggler
« on: May 20, 2020, 10:45:43 AM »
Back 2 Basics Ziggler

Pre-match – Play them all

McMahonsim – Each of Dolph’s moves have printed stun, and each B2B move can add stun with Showoff. I can either draw cards for stun or recover cards with Dolph’s ability, depending on game state.
Dubuque – Dolph recovers actions and moves nicely, Dubuque is used to recover reversals.
B2B – Packing 13 moves under it.
Old School Cage Match – I prefer this over OSWM. Can be equally disruptive, plus give +3 prematch slots.
Old School Manager – Free slot, can be flipped with Record Scratch.
Old School Psych x3 – The key to destroying opponents hand.
Old School Antics x2 – Free slots, they only recover 1, but can be flipped with Record Scratch.
Old School Belt – If it sees play, it’s the key to getting on board.
Old School Donnybrook - Wrecks any hand set up. Keep an Oversell.

Sustained Damage – Great when combo’ed with Oversell and Stealing the Show.
Don’t Cross a McMahon – Backlash deck action reversal often catches opponents off-guard.
Teaser Mode – Can search for Face the Music or Feeling Lucky (or opponent can RTV it if they want to discard 3) Makes Face the Music playable at 0F too.
Number One Contender – A lot of belts in virtual. Search for any card can be amazing. Late game, can grab Dolph’s Leaping DDT that reverses ANY card for 10D.
King Interferes – Dolphs specifics are not Smackdown, so this deck is technically Raw branded.

Arsenal Notes
I’m not packing Elbow to the Face because I want to oversell everything I can so opponent has to discard more (1 for each oversell in ring). Willing to take suggestions on other holes you may see, this is first draft.

Destroy the opponent’s hand ASAP. 3x Ring Psych limits their mid-match options, but once you have 2-3 Oversell in ring, basically your moves become chain, where the opponent MUST discard cards to play reversals from hand or backlash. Build your hand by drawing stun and stacking what you draw with McMahonism.

Known Weaknesses
Heat decks (headstrong and action reversals from ringside)
Managed by Vince/Bitter Rivals (or other cards that get rid of the belt)

I really enjoy this deck in the 3 games I've played. Not sure how much fun it is for opponent once their hand is gone though…

Old School Wrestling Match - Throwback
Pre-match Stipulation
Cannot be packed while packing any other stipulations.
If any player's turn ends after his Draw Segment without attempting to play a maneuver and he does not have the card titled Old School Cage Match in his ring area: Promo: 4.
Turns cannot be skipped and non-Superstar-specific cards cannot prevent an opponent from playing maneuvers.
Each turn, before your draw segment, if you do not have the card titled Back to Basics in your ring your opponent may remove 1 card in your ringside from the game.
When Back to Basics is in your Ring and you are not The Home Team you may shuffle up to 2 non-reversal cards from your ringside into your arsenal each time you successfully play a maneuver and your Pre-Match Capacity is +3. Your opponent cannot play I'm Gonna Break You.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent     RMS logo

That's quite a few are my knee-jerk reactions without hearing reasons as you why you suggested these changes:
1) If I'm playing OSWM TB, it's probably because I'm an aggro deck. Chain moves make good aggro decks, but this card would essentially allow the opponent to build their hand back up when they promo. I'm not sure I'd want to play this version of OSWM TB offensively if I'm allowing my opponent to promo. I'd certainly not play it against decks that get perks when promo'ing (Balor, Emma, New Day?). Decks I just mentioned could play this and get big boosts.

I was going to comment on the RFG component, but after reading the text for the THIRD time, I realized I had read it wrong. I like that there's a slight drawback (opp. being able to RFG one of your cards) but again, comboing this with letting your opponent promo and I'm still not thinking I'd play this card by choice.

Again, knee-jerk reaction/thoughts here.

Superstar guide is the correct answer. Image will be updated to reflect this come revisions.

Woah den cornette is even lousier den he already is.
Not perm, can flip, can blank & such a big cost to ace when he has no drawing power🤔.
An ability tat contradicts itself for goin chain & nthin to negate oswm tb🤔. Guess going heat stall is probably the only viable way & just concede when yr opponent plays oswm tb👍

Or choose Midnight Express and don’t worry about any of that. Options, my friend.

Team Hell No has been discussed on Discord as being rather weak. They’re not an active team, but there aren’t many active wrestler names being posted right now, so throwing their name in the hat.

He cannot pack A Dynasty’s Destiny because his logo isn’t on the card. He can run Vince Interferes and Backed By Stephanie McMahon, just like anyone else.

Thanks for the clarification. I love that Study the Tapes got a throwback. There was a time when it and Superior Training were in every deck I built.

I still play Study the Tapes OG quite often. Love that hand knowledge.

« on: December 17, 2019, 12:05:48 PM »
So "forever" will be an NXT guy, I guess. Had the hope for Ruby Riott. A set build around the Riott Squad could be badass. But, maybe in the future.  ;)

Just in time for Liv Morgan to get a makeover...just can't win in Raw Deal lol

I'm a fan of the Then, Now, Forever theme. There's a pretty big divide between wanting older wrestlers (nostalgia) and current guys (despite Raw and SD being terrrrrrrible shows) with both sides showing equal passion and support. This is a way to suit everyone.

Rules Forum / Re: Handful of rules questions
« on: November 23, 2019, 05:36:12 AM »
Q2: Your opponent can use reversals on your turn. So if you ACE Vince to play a move or action, he can reverse it and end your turn. If you ACE it to play a reversal on your opponents turn, he cannot play reversals to it.

Q4: My Sacrifice takes up a slot, but gives you two additional slots, so if you play it as your last prematch, you can play two more cards. (If you’re playing with 5 slots, 5+2 = 7 prematch).

Q5: Pre the FAQ:
Edge’s Spear (Throwback)
-This will reverse a card played after any other Set-up besides Irish Whip, but will not reverse the Set-up itself, unless it was played after another Set-up card.  EXAMPLE:  Edge’s Spear would reverse a maneuver played after Chain Wrestling, but not the Chain Wrestling itself.

Q6: If Plan B has the word “Must” then your assumptions are correct. If not, complete the text to the best of your ability.

Q7: Road to Victory blanks until the end of turn.

Q8: If Divine says completely, then it completely reverses.

Hope that fills in the blanks.

Didn’t realize Hot Tag was Face! I’ve never played with these tag cards, so just learning them myself.

Virtual Deck Reviews / Re: The LOL-vival
« on: November 14, 2019, 08:16:36 AM »
Why no Hot Tag? They reverse any maneuver on overturn, in my opinion, more powerful than Divine, cause they don't RGF themselves.

Why do you pack Blindside Takedown if you don't play moves without reversal restrictions? Sure it reduces Jive Soul by 3F (another card I'm not a huge fan of), but are there other Cheater cards I missed?

I'm just finalizing my Revival deck, excited to see how it does!

Virtual Raw Deal / Re: Virtual 10: Breaking Ground
« on: November 04, 2019, 01:22:16 PM »
I'd run San Diego with them, most people will be forced to discard less powerful prematch (likely ones that aren't permanent too!) so they have much less options to flip 1 card to reverse Revival's Blindsides each turn. Clink Me can pick up 3 Ready To Fights as soon as turn 2 if you're lucky enough and really want them. I'd also run Rules Were Meant to Be Broken with them, and really focus on triggering #FTR so they can't reverse from hand.

Ya, I definitely disagree with Wolfpacs first three answers. Let's wait for Daeva to chime in for official ruling.

Also, we'll likely include these 4 questions in a Virtual 10 FAQ we'll be working on shortly.
