Rules Forum / Flashy LED Jacket and Blank Cards
« on: April 14, 2018, 07:03:33 AM »
Jericho's Flashy LED Jacket
Backstage Card
Once during each of your turns, when you have no face-down cards in your Ring, you may discard 1 card and overturn 1 card and then put 1 non-Superstar-specific card from your Ringside in your Ring face-down.
When you successfully play 1 card with blank text, you may put 1 card from your Ringside on the bottom of your Arsenal and flip 1 card in your Ring face-down.

If I play a card with blank text, may I choose to flip a card facedown but decline to put a card on the bottom of my Arsenal?

If your opponent has the card titled "High-Flying Style" or any card with the word "Lucha" in the title in his Ring, this card is -5F.
If the card titled "As Big and Tough as Any Two Men" is in your Backstage, this card is +5D.

Rules Forum / Respect the Authority and Rollins' Flying Knee Stike
« on: February 20, 2018, 01:10:52 PM »
Respect The Authority
Backstage Card
Cannot be packed by DX or Two-Man Power Trip.
During your first Draw Segment of the game, draw up to 2 additional cards and your opponent puts 1 random card in his hand on the bottom of his Arsenal.
No player discards for your Superstar-specific High Risks; your Backed by Stephanie McMahon cards are Superstar-specific and replace the '3' with '6' in the text. When you Activate Vince McMahon Interferes!, he cannot reverse the effect. When played as an action, your A Dynasty's Destiny is F: 0 and cannot be reversed.
Unique     RMS logo

Rollins' Flying Knee Strike
High Risk / Reversal: Action
As a maneuver, can only be played after a successfully played maneuver or as a Counter (maneuver).  When played, you may discard up to 5 cards, this card is -2F for each card discarded.
As a reversal, reverse any action.
When successfully played, draw up to 1 card.
F: 20     D: 10     SV: 2     Unique

If Seth has Respect the Authority in his Backstage (via Don't Sell Out - Buy In), does it prevent him from voluntarily discarding cards for his Knee Strike? Or would this be a circumstance like with Edge & Christian's ability where he would reveal the cards he would have discarded to get the effect.

I ask because the phrase on Respect is "No player discards" not "No player may discard". So I could see this as an effect that prevents him from paying the cost (discard a card) to get the effect, or as an effect that steps in after the cards are designated and keeps them from leaving his hand.

Thanks in advance!

Rules Forum / Turning Everything Upside Down and Revealed RMS

Turning Everything Upside Down
Mid-match Action / Reversal: Special
Cannot be packed by 1-2-3 Kid, Eve, Sandman, or The Second Coming.
As an action, when you have lower Fortitude, your opponent cannot respond to this card; reveal the top 3 cards of your Arsenal, you may put any D: 3- cards into your Ring face-down, and shuffle.
As a reversal, this card is F: 0, and when you have lower Fortitude, reverse any card that is not the first or second card played this turn.
When this card is in your Ring, once during each of your turns, you may choose 1 face-down card in your Ring that does not have 'win the game' in the text, and turn it over.
F: 6     D: 0     Unique     Permanent     RMS logo

As an action, I reveal a Shoot Punch. Since I may put that card in play facedown, but RMS cards cannot be flipped over, Shoot Punch is not a valid target for TEUD, right?

Rules Forum / Is From NXT to WWE an NXT card?
« on: December 28, 2017, 03:06:30 PM »
Per the Virtual OmniFAQ, there's only a definition for an NXT Superstar, not for an NXT card.

While From NXT to WWE can only be packed by an NXT Superstar, it doesn't appear to have the NXT logo (unless I missed a revision that isn't being displayed in Lackey).

The word NXT in the title of the card is also just a word, not the logo.

So for Xavier Woods and Bayley, does it not count as an NXT card?

Does anyone with the skills to make good looking cards want to create alternate art for the USPS featuring their new(ish) gimmick?

I can try to help wrangle images, but lack the programs to make nice looking cards.

Rules Forum / The New Foundation, Springboard, and Strikes
« on: December 08, 2017, 07:46:56 PM »
Trying to decipher timing:

The Hart Dynasty: "...discard 1 card and play 1 card from hand face-down ... choose 1 Set-up card in your Backstage Area, and your played card gains the text and title of the chosen card ..."

The New Foundation: "... your non-Unique non-High-Risk maneuvers without 'reversed' in the text are -4F when played after a face-down card..."

Springboard(TB): "...it is instead considered a High Risk maneuver played after the card titled Irish Whip."

I use the Hart Dynasty's ability and play a card as Springboard. I want to follow it with, say, Running Clothesline (TB) (printed 12F, but per its text -7F when played after Irish Whip). How much Fortitude do I need? I understand I get the -7F discount from the Clothesline, but is it a Strike or High Risk for purposes of The New Foundation?

AJ cannot pack 4D+ Grapples. But she can pack High-Flying Style and therefore Cruiserweight Style Action, which reads:

"... Your non-Throwback Japanese Arm Drag is -6F and High Risk..."

As printed, non-TB JAD is a 4D Grapple.

So does CSA get around her ability's restriction against 4D+ Grapples for JAD?

Rules Forum / How much text can you ignore?
« on: September 29, 2015, 09:38:54 AM »
The Rhodes Brothers
Starting Hand Size: 7     Superstar Value: 3
Tag Team Superstar Ability: Once during any player's turn before playing a Superstar-specific card, you may remove 1 Backlash card from your Backlash or Ring from the game, and then ignore the 'Can only be played...' or 'Set-up' text on the played card.
You can pack Goldust and Cody Rhodes non-Foreign Object cards in your Arsenal; you cannot pack any Title Belts except the Tag Team Title Belts, or Corners.
V7

The Rhodes Drop Down Uppercut
Mid-match Strike / Reversal: Special
As a maneuver, this card is -12F and +2D, can only be played after a successfully played 4D+ maneuver and cannot be reversed from hand or Backlash.
As a reversal, reverse any Activated Card Effect or a card played after a Set-Up card; when you are the Rhodes Brothers, your opponent's Fortitude Rating is 15+, and you have either lower Fortitude or fewer cards in hand, this card is -16F.
F: 16     D: 4     SV: 1     Unique
V7

If I use the Rhodes Bros superstar ability to ignore "Can only be played text..." on a card with a sentence such as that found in the Uppercut, how much of that sentence do I retain?

I assume that if I'm playing it as a maneuver, it is -12F and +2D, and then I definitely ignore the bit about a 4D+ maneuver. Do I have to ignore the rest of the sentence? Or can I also enjoy the bit about not being reversible from hand or backlash?

Rules Forum / Reveal Your Hand vs Look at Your Hand
« on: September 25, 2015, 08:01:27 AM »
Suppose an effect will trigger when your opponent would look at your hand. Would that effect trigger when you use an effect that reveals your hand to your opponent?

For example, Silent But Violent causes you to reveal your hand to your opponent.

Reveal vs Look: distinct effects?

I sent this to the WWE today through their feedback form.  I'm really disappointed in the way the WWE has handled the Divas "revolution", and last night's Raw was the straw that broke my back.  Just thought I'd share:

Quote
I am reaching out to make a specific statement: Today I canceled my WWE Network subscription.

I did this because of the WWE's decision to have Nikki Bella take the record for longest Divas title reign.  Nikki is a fine performer, and I do not have anything against her either as a talent or as a person; nor am I particularly enamored with AJ Lee, whose position she overtook.

Rather, the manner in which Nikki Bella's taking of that record was handled last night on Raw, including the booking of a false finish to her championship defense against Charlotte, has made clear to me that the WWE creative team currently would rather spite it's fans and rub their noses in it, than provide them a semblance of what they are clearly demanding.

To be clear, if Nikki had not defended her title at all, I would not have this complaint.  Rather, it was the WWE choosing to create false hope by making a short booking to create the illusion of Nikki having her streak broken, followed by the false finish, and then choosing to end the segment simply by allowing Nikki to retain: those items in combination sadden and frustrate me.  Three weeks ago, there was no title match booked until Night of the Champions.

Three weeks ago, we all believed that Nikki would skate her way into the record, and while many weren't happy about that, it's hard to feel betrayed if there simply isn't any chance that anything can change it. Two weeks ago, apropos of nothing, the WWE gave us a glimmer of hope. There was no requirement that the title defense be booked.

I can recall similar situations with male superstars wherein such a false finish would have instead resulted in the match resuming, rather than simply being called, essentially, a non-finish.  Seth Rollins didn't get booked to defend either of his titles last night on Raw. Ryback didn't get booked to defend his title.  And while the New Day defended their titles against the Prime Time Players, it was my understanding that they did so pursuant to the PTP's contractual rematch clause - in other words, there was a specific reason for that match to happen, other than the fact that they units were feuding.

It is clear to me that the booking of the WWE realized that certain members of their fandom (those who dislike Nikki Bella, those who remain ardent AJ Lee fans, and those of us who support Charlotte) are clamoring for a change, the hashtag movement of a Divas revolution made real, and for a reorganization to come to the women's division as a whole.  That same realization lead the booking not to give them either a legitimate solution to their complaints, nor to put into place the changes desired, nor even to provide a legitimate, definitive conclusion to the match that most exemplified the struggle at present.  They instead provided us with every possible hope, only to snatch it away at the last moment in the most anti-climatic way possible.

It would have been better to have Nikki call in sick last night and get the record because she wasn't medically cleared to wrestle on the last night of contention.  Instead, the WWE is showing its disdain for its own fans.

There is no Divas revolution on WWE Television, there is only an apparently sadistic creative department taking glee at the upset of its consumers. The WWE seems to be hellbent on spiting its own face with regard to women wrestlers. They have seen the reactions that performers like Paige, Charlotte, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch have picked up in NXT, but they haven't understood it.  Each of those women would be better utilized on NXT, where the fans and the booking team respect their abilities, their potential, and their role both within the program and within the WWE Universe as a greater whole.  The booking team for the main shows does not comprehend this, and in so doing deprives the fans of the talents of these women.

I have canceled my subscription, and I doubt that I will renew it. I cannot justify paying a monthly fee to be condescended against.  I do not expect the WWE to let all of my favorites win all the time. A given performer losing a match is often not only appropriate from the perspective of business, but also from the perspective of telling a compelling story.  There have been times in my 20 years of WWE fandom that I have rejoiced in my own favorite wrestlers' losses, because I believed that the loss served a purpose.  Last night's match was not required. The manner in which the match was conducted was not required.  Last night's title match was spitting in the face of people who trusted the WWE.  I won't pay for that.

Rules Forum / They're Tons of Funk and blanked play requirements
« on: September 12, 2015, 05:43:42 AM »
Given this ruling on Lu-cha!: http://www.teamcanadaonline.net/index.php/topic,15899.msg186181/topicseen.html#new

Does the same apply to Splashes modified by Tons of Funk?

My inclination is not, since the modification here is constant, as opposed to that of Lu-cha, which doesn't kick in until the HR is actually played.

Fantasy Cards / The Authority

I haven't done this for awhile, but, eh, I found some inspiration.


The Authority
SHS: 10
SSV: 6
Stable Ability: You are a GM. You are a Chairman. Before the Pre-match phase begins, you may choose to play Pre-match cards first (regardless of Superstar Value), if you do, your opponent starts the match (regardless of Superstar Value or card effects. Before the first turn of the game, if you have 4- cards in your hand, draw cards until you have 5 cards in your hand. Your opponent non-GM Superstars cannot play non-Superstar Specific Stipulations. When you have 4- in your hand, your opponent's Ability is blank. You count as Triple H and Stephanie McMahon for card effects.  You may pack Handicap Match, It's All About Control, The First Family of Professional Wrestling, and A Dynasty's Destiny.

This Is Now a Handicap Match (+ Corporate Kane logo)
Pre-match Event / Mid-match Action / Reversal: Special
This card can be packed as a Pre-match or Mid-match card.

As a Mid-match Action, this card is -10F, search your Backlash, Removed from Game, and Ringside for a card titled Handicap Match and put it into play and if it would allow your opponent to make a choice at the end of the Pre-match phase, you may instead choose one of those options to apply to your opponent.
As a Reversal, when a card would be removed from your Arsenal by any effect (including overturning for damage), you may put this card into play and end that effect (even if it comes from unresolved damage), shuffle up to 8 cards from your Ringside into your Arsenal, and end your opponent's turn.

Rules Forum / "WWF Logo", old Sets, and MRP
« on: September 06, 2015, 10:33:07 AM »
Classic Power Bomb
Grapple
When you are not Kevin Nash or Vader, can be reversed as if it was non-Unique.
This card is +1D for each WWF Grapple maneuver in your Ring.
Draw up to 1 card.
F: 18     D: 12     SV: 2     Unique     WWF Classic logo

What counts as a "WWF" Grapple maneuver? Is it just cards printed with the WWF Classic logo from the other virtual sets? If I'm still rocking Premiere, Fully Loaded, etc from prior to the switch to WWE, do those count? If so, and they were reprinted in a Survivor Series with the WWE logo, do they still count, regardless of me packing the original printing?

Deck Reviews - Revolution / WiP - Revo Jeff Hardy
« on: March 05, 2007, 11:12:24 AM »
Hey all, I want to build Jeff Hardy for Revolution Format.  This is going to be a work in progress type project, so I don't have a complete deck list to post yet.  Instead I plan to use this thread as a sort of diary in building the deck and encourage input at all levels.  Thanks!

<Revolution> Jeff Hardy for <Revolution Format>

The decision between his storyline and natural ability is a difficult choice for me, but because I've always wanted an ability like his natural one to be included in Raw Deal, I'm going to stick with it.  You've got to love ignoring those play requirements.  In particular, it gives me access to cheap Mean cards, which will go a long way in helping me bridge through the Core phase of the match very quickly.

Starting with my Pre-match, I think that I want to run this deck solely on the power of Previously Unannounced Match.  By limiting my opponent to 1 mid-match card, I have significantly less to fear from Before This Gets Out of Hand and Keep Your Eyes Open or Its Game Over.  Granted there will still be Mean and Follow Up reversals in the Arsenal, but this at least controls that issue.

More later.

Rules Forum / DX + "exactly two words"
« on: March 03, 2007, 11:44:19 AM »
I apologize if this has come up before.

From the FAQ:
Quote
-The card searched for with the DX ability must have exactly two words in the title; contractions such as That’s are one word, as is a letter (Brave H) used in place of a word.  A hyphenated word (360-Degree) is also considered one word.

Is <Revolution> a word?  For example, can DX's ability get <Revolution> Punch?

I assume the answer is yes, but this is one of those areas I just want to be clear on before I make a fool out of myself.

Rules Forum / Revo 2 Card Names
« on: February 28, 2007, 02:45:44 PM »
I assume the answer to this is "yes", but I want to clarify it because I don't see it explicitly stated on CI.com.

Will all of the cards in Revo 2 also have <Revolution> at the beginning of their names?

I assume that for the sake of All Axxess Superstar diversity, Edge, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, and Kane all necessarily have <revo> at the beginning.

Just want it explicitly stated.
