Classic Raw Deal / Looking for Playtesters -- NRD
« on: March 24, 2014, 11:41:35 AM »
I am spearheading the NRD next set and I have a good amount of cards made. If anyone is interested in helping playtest the cards for the upcoming sets let me know.

Do you have the notes for 2-4, it will give me a jumping off point

I should note as an additional challenge for anyone who's picking up the game:

NRD2-4 wasn't balanced prior to release.  I released it under the premise that it would be entering a balancing phase, but then never had time to actually do it.

So be aware that you might wanna either ban it or reassess its viability.


You mean the Superstars like Hogan, Rock, Angle... etc...

Not loading for me either; but everything that was on that site for the most part is on here. Like card texts and information like that.

What were you looking for?

Can we get the templates used for NRD?

To summarize: there are people who play around Cow, and people who play through Cow. If you pack it, it's a dead slot against the first type. If you don't, then the second type will barrel through your lack of Cow.

Which risk you want to take is up to you.

I was always the guy who packed Cow and not Backlash. But I was also who would plow straight through it too if I had nothing else to do that turn. I had a lot of success with that strategy.

I was also the guy who didn't play DTTAH. I did kind of rely on my meta who packed things like Backlash and DTTAH a lot to make it so I didn't need to. Only rarely would it actually bite me.

I already have a lot of cards designed, if anyone is wanting to playtest I can give them access to the Google Drive folder I have set up for them.

But for playtest purposes you will have to deal with everything done using Magic Set Editor :-P

anyone interested can PM me

I also want to save my old games because I want to share the classic ones with my children; and sometimes I do go back and play some of them.

What was the problems that the PS3 had with it being backwards?

I actually know this one through research. At the time the second generation Playstations 3 had flooded the marker (non backwards compatible) PS3s and I was looking up the first generation Playstation 3s

The first set of PS3s were ORIGINALLY backwards compatible, they each had an emulator that could play them, but each emulator had a high cost AND Sony had to pay some proprietary license or some other nonsense.

Over time, it got too expensive to the point where Sony decided that any new the second Generation of Playstation 3's would no longer have backwards compatibility, citing rising costs of hardware, and that the emulator and rights of said emulators would cause the costs of the Playstation 3's to rise $50 if they kept putting them in.  

We need more backwards compatibility. Our at least the XBone needed an HDMI input for the 360 like it had four the tv

X-Box games were all on DVDs, though, not HD-DVDs (the HD DVD thing was an add-on drive. I unfortunately know this, as I have one). Typically all Blu-Ray players are capable of reading DVDs.
Oh by god you're right. I kept thinking they were all HD-DVDs.

I don't think the Xbox One will get backwards compatibility because they use different formats. The One uses Blu-ray as that's what won the HD Disk War and the 360 was in the HD DVD camp. The thing I want them to do is to release the arcade games from the 360, those shouldn't be too difficult.

I don't believe that's what I said, Joe...

That said, is there a problem having an opinion?  Certainly not.  Is there a problem with being disappointed in your expectations of something?  Nah.  But taking it out on us, chiding us with snarky, hateful, disparaging comments isn't really fair to all the time we put in.

Eh, maybe Sandman being sandy wasn't one of my best ideas, heh. Guess I should leave he Superstar Card images for the experts. :)


I think it was a great idea. Sandman looks sweet. But I like things like that.

I more curious towards the words "Goldberg specific Backlash cards"
Does that mean we're getting a Goldberg Midmatch?  ;D

I sure hope so!

Lone warrior seems really interesting and a lot of fun. I loved playing Goldberg when he released originally

I honestly do not know. Up until today I was unaware there was a Daniel Bryan in my corner.  If that is how it is worded, maybe that combination is why the revolution restriction is in place, or maybe, more likely  it was just to aviod taking advantage of that card in general. I would assume the logic to make that judgement call, is similiar to Kurt angle in my corner. The revolution restriction limits a player from takinf advatage of the 0f superstar specific chain cards. This all speculation though,  We shall await the raw deal gods to reveal the true reasoning.

And also I have to agree with Daeva on this one whole heatedly about corners. Conceptually they are an awesome idea. However with a game as complex as Raw Deal, they can become a playtest and design nightmare. Sorta like Eugene.

Yeah, awesome flavorfully, but a nightmare gameplay wise. Way too much for a small team to test everything with those.

Which corners turns out to be unbalanced?

At a guess, probably different Corners are unbalanced with different decks. Without seeing the superstar specifics and the remainder of V6 (not a playtester over here) I can't say which specifically would be problems with nWo Hollywood, but a Corner that generally seems to be a problem is Shawn Michaels. Most decks have trouble dealing with 3x Grapple With Your Faith, frex.

There are TONS of examples...Shawn is a common, anyone with Momentum maneuvers is another.  But sometimes we get unforeseen ones that come out of WTF-nowhere.

An example of this, which we did randomly catch and fix, was Jamie Noble with Daniel Bryan in his corner (+1 Internets to the first one who figures out why this was busted).  It was out of nowhere, and because of the varying times that the three superstars in question were developed, it wasn't something that came to everyone's mind immediately.

I wanna say, being able to pick up the surfboard (i think thats what it is called, discard it to blank damage), then pick it back up via jamie noble ability, in order to infinitely block the damage on cards, while never dying because of nidia interferes, hometown hero, and rochester.

I have exercised the demons.... THIS HOUSE IS CLEAR. 8)
I don't think that works, doesn't the maneuvers you pack with the DB corner need to be Revo moves?

I have noticed a lot of virtual cards that have been made say you can't pack Corners, why is that?

Either game flavor (come on, who ever backed nWo Hollywood that isn't already on the card) and/or game balance (when you see full nWo Hollywood specifics this will make more sense).  Usually the latter, as corners in AA can often result in unintended unbalanced card interactions.

Check out the forum for it. It's a good reboot to the game. My buddy and I are working on the third set for it right now. Though, I need to find someone who can Photoshop the cards together when they're ready to print.

The way it's worded makes it seem that if it's reversed from arsenal it will go back to your hand.

Atomic Lariat
If this card is reversed by a card that is not hybrid or Unique, return it to your hand.
F:6 D:6

Is that correct? Or is it to mean if unsuccessful when not reversed by Hybrid or Unique, bounce back to hand.
