That would make for a fun superstar icon, no doubt

Ali's always needed a push.
It's not looking good when he's getting outvoted by a Shane remake  :o

Two-time, two-time NXT champs!

Every one of these superstars looks like a blast so far, can't wait to try them out

By that time, Creed would be 95 and I would be 80. I don't see us doing Raw Deal development from the porch of the nursing home.

Why not, it might keep you busy in between naps  ;D

I thought the show was pretty enjoyable overall.  Also, I want to point out three things that were funny:

- During the HHH-Sting match, when Billy (I think?) took down Nash with a shoulder tackle outside the ring, Nash fell to the ground and immediately grabbed his quad.  Good to see he has a sense of humor, ha.

- The guy in the back left of the flag carrying group during Rusev's entrance could not for the life of him figure out how to get into step with everyone else.  Super embarrassing, but at least he tried.  Also, the tank was awesome  :laugh:

- The Rock's appearance got unintentionally spoiled when Cena went to hug a fan after his match, and she was standing right next to the Rock's mother.

/end useless trivia-like rambling

Yeah when you get top 2 in King of the Ring the two you get are always the same.  It's so you can pro them.

I'm getting an "Oops! Google Chrome cannot find..." message when I try to dl these, don't know if it's just me.

The crowd did a fair amount of justice during the whole show.  I liked the "We want Divas" chant during the title match, even though the match wasn't that bad (people are just sick of Cena/Orton).

The fact that D-Bry wasn't even in the Rumble makes me think WWE's writers are just a bunch of monkeys with typewriters.

I think it might be Blader time.


Pretty sure it's Slater time.

A friend and I play this, it's quite excellent.  The bluffing/strategy elements are addictive, and the deckbuilding/influence system is a great way to create deck variance without breaking the game.  The fact that it's considerably less expensive than a traditional ccg is a welcome bonus  ;D

Rules Forum / Hardcore Title TB + Trash Can
« on: August 24, 2013, 01:42:54 PM »
Can my opponent take the Hardcore Title if they successfully "Use" my Trash Can?

Trash Can
Strike: Foreign Object
When the card titled Trash Can is in the Ring, once per turn, any player on their turn may discard a card to "use" the Trash Can. For each "use" Trash Can may be reversed as usual. If reversed, put it into owner's Ringside pile.
In the event there is more than one Trash Can in the Ring, declare the one you are using; each can be used only once per turn.
SV: 1
F: 5   D: 7

World Wrestling Federation Hardcore Title Belt - Throwback
When this card is in your Ring, your maneuvers are -2F and +1D and when your opponent successfully plays a Foreign Object maneuver or Trademark Finisher, put this card into his Ring.  When you are Al Snow, Raven, or Stevie Richards, your Foreign Object cards are +1D.
Superstar Value +1     Universally Unique     Permanent

Regardless, it was an amazing as F@#$ PPV.

Apparently we're in the minority  ??? 

-Basically every match was good (didn't really watch the divas one though)

-CENA LOST CLEAN, straight pinfall, 1-2-3 without any cheating or distractions, that's kind of a big deal.  The cash in is only going to make D-Bry bigger, because he'll have an opponent that people will despise (more-so than Cena lol), and when he wins the belt for real it will carry a significance with it.

-The Brock-Punk complaints seem kinda silly, for a number of reasons:  Brock has won like one match since he's been back, what kind of monster loses every time?  It was an entertaining match through and through, Lesnar actually did wrestling moves which was nice, plenty of ups and downs with the Heyman stuff, but ultimately it was a believable angle that Punk was too distracted by Heyman to finish the job.  Losing a match as close and as good as this one doesn't bury Punk AT ALL, it just signifies that he hates Heyman a little bit more than he hates Brock.  And that's not a bad thing.  Also, Punk isn't really the future anymore, since I'm pretty sure he's said he doesn't plan on wrestling for more than a couple more years at most.

-Even though I can't stand Del Rio, he and Christian put on an excellent World Title match.  Maybe I just thought it was funny that Del Rio had a new wound every time they showed him, ha.

-The Ring of Fire match is my only complaint, because Bray needed help to win, which doesn't seem like a great way to push a new talent.  The after-match kidnapping of KANE kinda makes me wonder where that storyline is going.

The new box set looks great, it's a shame it's so far out.

Virtual Raw Deal / R-Truth
« on: January 22, 2013, 11:03:55 PM »
For anyone who has already played Mr. Truth (or theory-crafted for that matter  :P), in what situations would you strategically want to choose either face or heel?  Going heel against a legend seems like the obvious one, but I'm curious as to what other tells would make one select face or heel.

Also, for those in charge, any chance we could get a downloadable R-Truth superstar card like the one in the preview thread?  While the new one isn't bad, its... odd.  Lol.

Don't get me wrong, I respect the hell out of what you're doing for the game we all love.  Believe it or not, much like you guys, I want to see the game get better; a constructive criticism here and there can't be bad for discussion, can it?

As for this wave of spoilers, the expansion of Classic moves is awesome, and I can't wait to see the Raw and Smackdown allegiances  ;D

I'm not doubting that his new card is good, or useful for that matter, it's just not something that will have a guaranteed impact on his game (like a backstage or backlash card would).

The two major complaints I have about Steamboat as a deck are:
1.  He seems to have a ton of restrictions (no revo, no RS: Arm (that one is very understandable  ;D), no Vicky if you wanted to take advantage of being able to search for "flying" moves, etc.)  In all honesty, I'm not sure how this one could be addressed.

2. The fact that his original set more or less has 4 cards (either you don't play the storyline, or you do and can't fetch his nice 0/4).  This one just bothers me because some guys who did get storylines got a few extra cards to compensate (I'm looking at you, Santino), and other guys who already had more than the base number of cards in their set (IRS, for example) got multiple cards.  I'm not looking to start a big debate about fairness, I just think Ricky got the short end of the stick as to the number of cards in his set.

So the "concern" I'm showing toward his card is that it doesn't address either of those.  It's possible that I'm just being extra critical of Steamboat because he's one of my all-time favorites, BUT I have played enough games with him to reasonably reach my opinion.

Rules Forum / V5 Questions

Couple of Q's:

1.  How does Bring on the Brain Barometer interact with Beware the Cobra?  Do you get an extra card, if so where does it come from?  Relevant text(s):
     When this card is in your Ring, overturn 1 less card for your Ability, and you may put 1 more card on the bottom of your Arsenal for your Ability.
     Once per turn, you may overturn 3 cards and then put 1 card from your hand, 1 card from your Ringside, and 1 card removed from the game that is not a non-hybrid reversal on the bottom of your Arsenal; draw 1 card.

2.  When activating the Great White, do you need to have at least one Pump Kick, or can you do it with 0?  Relevant text:

     ACE: During your turn, you may put all Pump Kick cards in your Ring and The Celtic Warrior from your Ring into your Backstage, and then shuffle up to # of your cards removed from the game (except non-hybrid reversals) into your Arsenal, where # is 2 + the number of Pump Kick cards moved from your Ring.

Do you guys have something against Ricky Steamboat?  The general consensus in our playgroup is that he's awful (feel free to prove me wrong, preferably via PM as to not derail this thread), and his support card doesn't seem to help that much.  Everything else looks super fun, but the Steamboat fan in me is kinda disappointed  :-\

Question about Morrison, his ability says "When cards in your Arsenal, Ring, or Ringside would be removed from the game from cards played..." does "cards played" refer to cards being played currently, or cards played at some point?  I'm mostly wondering if his ability works with Slow Motion Entrance  :D

Mark Henry looks fun as hell, but I'm a bit disappointed he didn't get a card called Better is Better.  Probably just because it's one of my favorite wrestling lines ever  ;D

With Kofi's ability, does ignoring Follow-up prevent you from using his pre-match?  (or more specifically, how much of the follow-up does it ignore?)
