This guy builds his hand very quick, and can lower the opponent's super fast as well.
Promo on his ability works during the Pre-match so that will help fuel It's Getting Hot in Here, and 9 times out of 10 my opponent discards 2 cards for The Ambrose Asylum. I'm gaining around 6 cards from Promo, making them discard 3-5 cards at the end of the Pre-match and have enough to start playing Heat cards on my first turn from Ringside.
Desperate Struggle is in there for Wraparound Wrist Lock or Handcuffed (more hand hate or hand draw) and from there the deck is pretty straight forward.
The Lunatic Fringe is the star of this deck. If they Don't Try This at Home the ACE effect Ambrose will draw instead of discard, and the list of effects include drawing 3 cards and making opponent randomly put 1 from hand on the bottom of his Arsenal. He also gets to choose 2 effects on it!

Welcome (back) to Raw Deal / Crowdsourcing Virtual Starter Decks
« on: January 09, 2020, 08:06:22 AM »
I think it would be a great idea to create some starter decks with the help of the community of all experience levels, as well as get a conversation going for the best way to get into Virtual.

With the information here, I'll set up a printable file for two starter decks for players to start playing the Virtual expansions.

I believe these should be Virtual exclusive to save a player from having to find existing cards to add into the deck.

Whodo you think would be two good Superstars for players to get back into the game with, and what designs should they be based around?

Virtual Raw Deal / The state of Raw Deal going into 2020
« on: December 31, 2019, 04:28:24 PM »
As 2019 comes to a close and this game enters its 20th year, I like to think it has been a good year for Virtual. Some changes have led to new titles being introduced, new leadership and new faces among the developers. I hope the changes can continue the great work that has come before, and this is why I think 2020 will be such an amazing year for Virtual. There are more changes to come and this is what I would like to update you all on.

Transparency/Community Involvement:
If it wasn’t for you, you that is reading this message, there wouldn’t be Virtual expansions. The players keep this game alive and we want to make sure you know what is going on and what our intentions are going forward with this game. With the recent poll for a Superstar choice in V11, as well as seeking input on the 2020 bottom of the barrel thread, your continued support is important to us and we want to have you involved when we can.

New Content:
We’re going to be producing smaller sets going forward. The aim is 8 Superstars per set, with the hopes to have more sets during the year, along with some surprises. Development and playtesting is done with a small team and we still want to release the best product possible. Reducing the size of the sets will make the happen.

Prizing & Tournaments:
There are a few ideas going around. A monthly/quarterly printable tournament kit for local areas to make available to their players however they want, be it in a structured event, giveaways, or another method that hasn’t been thought of.
As for tournaments, a Regional Tournament Kit is being discussed for larger scale events. Like how the North American Championship had alternate art cards, among other prizing, we want to make these events more special with exclusive prizing not available anywhere else.
Formalities are still being worked out, but we’re hoping this is a way to give everyone around the world an opportunity to play an event with the prizing and competition that is seen at Worlds.

Playtesters:
We will need new playtesters and would like to bring in some fresh eyes to help with the ongoing work we’re releasing. An application process will be made to add the new members to the playtesting team. Keep your eyes open for that in the coming month or two.

That’s what we have going on with Virtual heading into 2020, the 20th year of the game. Feel free to ask questions in this thread and we’ll be happy to answer them to the best of our ability.

DONE!


I've had this deck together for a few months and have had great success with.
Pre-match usually goes Backstage Politics, Managed by Lita, No Show (Strangle Hold & Manager Interferes) and a mixture of Stun the Crowd, Pyro Volley and Dare to Take the Challenge.

Ryback draws until he has 12 cards with WAKE UP! at the end of the Pre-match phase, so you can discard for Challenge and Pyro Volley and no worry about having a small hand. Their hand will get pretty low too if they dare to take the challenge.
Ryback Rules gives me -4F to all cards, so I get Power Struggle, Strangle Hold and Leg Drag right away so the deck is more reversal light.

The constant barrage of Volley moves, and the card drawing that comes with it is nasty. Managed by Lita on successful (2 when FEED ME MORE is in play), plus stun on the moves that happens a lot of the time.

His specifics are all really good. Actions can only be reversed by Specifics thanks to WAKE UP, and his reversals are all really good too.
