So if the first case is your opponent plays Nitro, you could essentially overturn your entire Arsenal since you won't be able to "Discard a Hybrid Card" since you're overturning.

Would the second case work that way though?  If you play Nitro and therefore have to discard the same number of cards as your opponent did, you created the discard effect, not him.

I figured I’d either get someone big and have a shot at it or I’d get someone who couldn’t use the power ups and go squish.  Coming in late definitely helped too.

Previously, I'd talked with John (Dilbert) about a wishlist for Smash fighters. At the top of my list was a character from an ATLUS JRPG series. However, I considered this a pipe dream and not at all realistic.

I wake up this morning and see a text message from him. I interpret it as something else, but then after I get on my laptop and go to YouTube, I see a Smash trailer which suddenly shows what his text message was actually saying.

You, me, and everyone else never saw it coming.
I have one thing to add: pancakes.  That is all.

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.

Heat being a trait and not a card or card effect is how it works based on the Omnifaq.  Since Hell In A Cell Match states that cards and card effects cannot move cards.

-Heat is a Trait, not a card effect. Hell in a Cell Match and The Rattlesnake's ability will not prevent Heat cards from being played from your Ringside pile, nor will they prevent Heat cards from being removed from the game if cards are moved from the ringside. EXAMPLE: Foil cards played by Triple H, Undertaker and others listed while a Cell is in play, or Unique cards played against The Rattlesnake will still trigger Heat removal if they move cards.

I haven't said or done much in a while, but as far as the whole rules thing for Raw Deal, most people who have an idea will contribute, but there's two people you have to listen to.

Daeva is the Head Judge and pretty much all around rules guy.  Usually if someone else answers he'll pop in with a "stamped for correctitude" or make corrections or comments on what was said.

CreedP is the Head Designer (or only, I'm not 100% sure). If it's related to Virtual, he had at least a hand in designing it if he didn't do the entire thing himself.

As far as I understand from previous posts, conversations, etc, both worked on the game while it was in print and with Barron, so out of everyone still here have the best insight into what was intended with the game all around.  Admitted Creed can be a little brusque sometimes (no offense Creed), but what he stated wasn't his conjecture or belief, I saw the ruling in the OmniFAQ as it was taken from the Comic Images website and rehosted.  Many rulings on specific card, game mechanics, card traits and terminology can be found via the OmniFAQ (which applies to cards released in print by CI) and the Virtual FAQ (specific to virtual cards or interactions with Virtual Cards).  Stating that there is no ruling body or official rules is disingenuous and can be proven so by a little light research through the website.

As to errors that may come up, it happens, and I can't think of anyone that will say they are right 100% of the time, or that mistakes don't slip through on things.  Everyone's human and makes mistakes.

Sorry if I derailed things, I just found I couldn't keep my silence on this one.  Back to lurking.

Note: OmniFAQ and Virtual FAQ can be found through links here:,7946.0.html.

I had the problem with the update too, I just went ahead and redownloaded the plugin and reinstalled it.  I'd recommend copying the decks folder if you do that, just in case.

Assuming he could pack it, I'd think No Escape would prevent you from attempting to play the card before you even got to check for Truth's ability.

The way I'm understanding it, based on the timing breakdown is the Fort reduction from Dynamically Inclined would apply in step 2A.
In 2E, with "when played" effects, is when it becomes Unique.
Then in 3A the damage modifier tries to apply, sees the Unique and runs away.

How does R-Truth's ability work with Dynamically Inclined's fortitude reduction and damage increase?

Starting Hand Size: 7     Superstar Value: 3
Superstar Ability: Your first maneuver played each turn that is not Chain, Foreign Object, Heat, Multi, Revolution, or Volley is considered Unique.
Your Eve: Dirty Dancer is not Fan Favorite. You can pack High-Flying Style, and you can pack Face and Heel cards in your Little Jimmy Deck, but you cannot pack Face or Heel cards (including Superstar-specific cards) in any other Area; you cannot pack There Is No Escape. Your Arsenal can only contain 50 cards, and your Backlash can only contain 8 Pre-match and 8 Mid-match cards.

Dynamically Inclined makes your non-Unique dynamics -3F and +2D.

Based on my understanding of the timing rules, the fortitude reduction would take place, then the ability would fit in on the "when played section" which would then negate the damage increase.  Unless the "Your First Maneuver" text takes place somewhere else that isn't well defined in the timing.  Do I have this straight or no?

Eh, what the heck, I'll throw the numbers off again.

The New Day (all-9pts)
Each with
Heat of the Rumble (x3 for 6pts)

Total: 15 pts

Also, if you're looking for something that's Superstar Specific, there's a whole section with card lists specific to each Superstar.  It even includes what set each card is from.,14349.0.html

Mondays aren't usually too good for me, I probably won't be available until close to midnight your time.  I should be free Tuesday or Wednesday for most of the afternoon or evening.

We were going to do this past Thursday, but I was running a little late all day, and didn't see him on, not sure if I missed him or what.

So, for those who don't know, I'm back in school aiming for a nursing program at Arizona State University.  Interestingly enough you posted this just in time for me to read it before I head to my Pathophysiology class to learn about diseases and how they affect the body.  We talked about colds, flu, and pneumonia (which apparently I still need a spell checker to get right) a week or two ago.  And the urgent care doctor is clearly an idiot.  Based on what you're saying, and my notes it sounds like you had a flu that your body wasn't able to fight off fast enough, which caused pneumonia.  That's where the change in the cough and the difficulty of breathing changed over. 
Know what doesn't help against the flu virus and viral pneumonia? Antibiotics. 
Antibiotics treat bacteria, which could become an issue with pneumonia, but by the time that happens you should be in a hospital.   They do absolutely nothing to viruses.  So yeah, based on information available to a pre-nursing student, that doctor is an idiot.

Fortunately my class was today, and my instructor (who has a doctorate in nursing and has worked as a nursing instructor) is usually pretty good about answering health care related questions.  So I gave him a really brief run down of what you said and asked if you should be reporting them to anyone.  He said you can certainly do that, but the effort you have to put forth wouldn't really be worth what would come out of it to file a report to medical agencies.  The review might be a good idea though, and telling people you're close to in the area to avoid those places is probably warranted, as well as not going to see them again.

Sorry, with it being midterm time I forgot about trying to get the game in, I can try tonight but its unlikely.  If I can't get it in feel free to give me the loss and move on, I should be able to get the next game in still since midterm is wrapping up.

Something came up and today probably isn't going to happen, I'm going to try for tomorrow about an hour later, but if that doesn't work out I'll give up the round and hopefully by in for the next.

The first sentence just lets you pack 5 Foreign Object cards in your backstage, which you reveal and shuffle into your Arsenal at the end of the prematch phase.
The part about Terry Funk's ability allows you to pick up a Foreign Object from your ringside instead of using one in your hand when you use your ability.

Terry Funk
Starting Hand Size: 6     Superstar Value: 4
Extremist Legend Ability: When your first card played on your turn is a maneuver with 'classic' in the title, you may also immediately play a Foreign Object without 'reversed' in the text from hand; unless both cards are reversed, your turn continues.
You can pack No Sell Maneuver, but you cannot pack Managers, There is No Escape, or Everything and the Kitchen Sink. Your Foreign Objects are not Heel or Raw.

So when you use your ability, when your first card is a 'classic' maneuver you can also play a Foreign Object from either hand or ringside, assuming you meet the other requirements.

The Lion's Den Match     (+Steve Blackman & Owen Hart logos)
Pre-match Stipulation
Cannot be blanked.
Non-Unique non-Superstar-specific non-maneuver cards and card effects from non-Unique non-Superstar-specific non-Stipulation cards (except Volley This!) cannot move cards from any Ringside.
When you successfully play a maneuver, shuffle up to 1 maneuver from Ringside into your Arsenal.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent

No, those maneuver's can't.  Only Unique, Superstar-specific, maneuver cards, and effects from Unique, Superstar-specific, Stipulations can move cards. (And Volley This!)
Unless I'm reading it wrong, which is always possible.

I was really hoping this would be a good one, since I was actually able to be there, and I was pretty happy with it.  I really don't think Naomi is ready to be at the top, not saying she never can be, but she's really sloppy with everything but her punches and kicks.  Also I think they did the best thing they could have with the Nikki vs. Natalya match, that place would've imploded if Nikki lost outright.  Scottsdale is right outside Phoenix where the show was, even though at one point they said Tucson.
In all I think this was mostly a positive experience, no one looked like they got away completely unscathed and almost everything was worth watching.

Including JBL's loss to the entrance ramp.
