Rules Forum / "Successfully play"
« on: June 30, 2018, 06:00:41 PM »
I am sure this has been covered many times before, but I couldn't find a specific ruling, so...

The rulebook defines "successfully played" as : "Successful: a card is successful if it is not reversed from the hand or Backlash deck.  Successful cards go in the Ring and their Damage Value add to your Fortitude Rating."

The question is regarding Actions that say "As an action, shuffle this card into arsenal, or discard this card, or remove this card from the game...etc..."... and if those actions are not reversed, they are successful and you do what the card effect says, but those actions do not end up in the ring... So do they still count as being "successfully played"?

Rants Forum / Enzo Amoré is Innocent!
« on: June 30, 2018, 12:40:28 PM »
"On January 22, 2018, Eric Arndt (also known as Enzo Amore for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)) was accused, via the internet and social media, of misconduct during an alleged incident in Phoenix, Arizona, several months earlier. Prior to that date, no law enforcement or any other officials had contacted Mr. Arndt regarding such claims. However, after the careless, unfounded tirade on social media, Mr. Arndt learned of these accusations when his counsel reached out to Phoenix Police. Subsequently, and as evidenced by the vast amount of online admissions and other publicly available information, it was soon clear that the accuser exhibited a complete lack of truth or credibility. At all times, Mr. Arndt fully and unequivocally denied such accusations and remained confident in clearing his name.
The Phoenix Police Department recently informed Mr. Arndt and his counsel that there is insufficient evidence in this matter to warrant any criminal charges, that the matter will not be transferred to the County Attorney for prosecution, and that their investigation and case is closed. No charges were ever filed. The matter is closed.
Mr. Arndt expresses his gratitude for the enormous amount of support from his fans and followers during this time period. The support has carried him through these events and opened his eyes to the faith and loyalty of those who have cheered and followed his career. This experience has further taught Mr. Arndt to be cautious with his personal associations, because false, defamatory, and unfounded accusations can alter and impact the lives and careers of the falsely accused and their families. Mr. Arndt is working diligently toward his next venture in the entertainment industry and looks forward to reconnecting with his fans in a big way in the very near future."

Told y'all!!!.... WWE jumped the gun

Maybe now we can finish the Enzo superstar creation on TCO 🙏 😬

So the elevator lift for Bobby Lashley is a 30F grapple for him and it says "can only be played after successfully played action card" it also says that it's -25F played after the card titled Irish whip.

So if I discard 2 cards and activate the ACE on the Irish whip throwback, the ace is saying "once during each year turns, you may discard 2 cards and your next card played this turn is considered to be played after Irish Whip and after a setup card."

So the question is does that ACE activation constitute the elevator lift being played after a successfully played action card, since all forms of Irish whip are actions and Elevator Lift is now considered played after Irish Whip?

Here's the card text:

The Elevator Lift
Grapple + Grapple
Can only be played after a successfully played Action card.
This card is -25F when played after the card titled Irish Whip.
When successfully played, search your Arsenal for 1 Unique card, reveal it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your Arsenal.
Unique
Multi
SV: 2
F: 30 D: 30

Irish Whip - Throwback
Mid-match Action
Your Lock, Stock, and Barrel maneuvers are blank.
During your turn when this card is in your Backlash, you may put it into your Ring.
During your turn when this card is in your Ringside, you may discard 2 cards and then put this card into your Backlash.
ACE: Once during each of your turns, you may discard 2 cards and then your next card played this turn is considered to be played after Irish Whip and after a Set-up card.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique

Virtual Raw Deal / Lashley
« on: May 06, 2018, 11:53:09 AM »
Somebody help me please.... It's bad enough that Lashley gets all of his non-unique Maneuvers to go successfully all the way through the Arsenal without being stopped by anything.... But then the two fingered salute pre-match makes all of his Bash-multi cards F0, which allows him to get them all out very easily... Which in turn allows him to play The non-unique mid-match Bash Great American Style Trademark Finisher, which for some reason comic images made as a non-Unique Card... And if that somehow gets through the hand and backlash then 50 Damage sales through the Arsenal without being stopped... It's pretty devastating combo.

Anyone have any input on how to prevent this aside from the obvious which would be to reverse the BASH Great American  Style?

Here is the card text btw:

BASH: Great American Style
Mid-match Trademark Finisher
This card is -5F for every maneuver in your Ring area with “BASH” in the title.
Can only be played after a successfully played maneuver.
SV: 5
F: 50 D: 50

Virtual Raw Deal / Wrestling in the ECW Area
« on: May 06, 2018, 12:50:59 AM »
Wrestling in the ECW area says "your ECW pre-match cards or pre match cards with extreme hardcore that's a little, are considered to have 'taunt' in the title"

I have been trying to wrap my mind around the point of those cards having Taunt in the title. Can anybody enlighten me on how that is beneficial or relevant?

Rules Forum / Put versus played
« on: March 30, 2018, 10:35:06 PM »
I have a manager that I'm trying to satisfy here on a ruling... I'm trying to explain that where the big boys play the WCW Allegiance, "put' equals successfully played.

The card says "when you put a WCW card into your ring, your opponent discards 1 card".

The opponent is trying to argue that "put" does not include played.... he claims That only cards that are actually put into the ring like Judo choke or Irish whip throwback count as cards being "put" into the ring.

Can you guys please point me to some type of ruling so that I can reference it for the situation.

Thank you in advance.

Virtual Raw Deal / The Original Horseman question
« on: March 14, 2018, 05:34:34 PM »
I have a question about The Nature Boy's Backstage card.



The Original Horseman
Backstage Card
Your Starting Hand Size, Superstar Value, and Pre-match Capacity are +1 for each WCW and non-faction The Nature Boy-specific Pre-match card in your Ring.
Once during each of your turns, you may either overturn 2 cards, and you are considered to be Ric Flair for the rest of the turn; or you may overturn 4 cards, and you are considered to be The Four Horsemen for the rest of the turn.
Unique     WCW logo     RMS logo
V5

1) Are there any FACTION The Nature Boy specific pre-match cards in existence? (That will not work for The Original Horsemen because it is faction)

2) let's say I play a bunch of WCW pre matches like Halloween Havoc, Welcome to Monday Nitro, Where the big boys play, etc... Each one of those increases the hand size, Superstar Value, and Pre-Match Capacity for The Nature Boy...... AND each The Nature Boy-specific pre-Match card also triggers this effect on The Original Horsemen..... So my question is... What happens for It's the Oldest Ride in the Park, But it Still Has the Longest Line, since it is BOTH a WCW Pre-Match card AND a The Nature Boy-specific pre-match card? Does the card trigger the effect twice on The Original Horseman , since it satisfies both conditions in the same card?

Rules Forum / Can you believe the witty retort?
« on: February 25, 2018, 06:24:37 PM »
Can you play "can u Believe the Witte retort" in response to the Superstar ability causing a discard?

So if a Superstar ability says "discard one card to search Arsenal for the certain card", can you respond by playing can you believe the retort", that says "as a reversal you may put his card in your ring area if your opponent discards a card"??

Rules Forum / Can u Believe the witty retort
« on: February 25, 2018, 11:20:42 AM »
So is "can you believe the witty retort"?

It says, "as a reversal, can only be played when your opponent discards any number of cards"

My question is on fundamental ruling basis... Can reversals be played if they are applicable during the pre-match phase, like this one?

So if your opponent discards a card during pre-match can you play witty retort?

Rules Forum / Heyman Interferes versus Dirty Low Blow
« on: January 27, 2018, 11:46:35 PM »
So I play Dirty Low Blow (Non-Throwback) and it says,  "Cannot be reversed from your opponent's hand"

My opponent plays Heyman Interferes from hand... It says, "can only be played when your opponent plays a card, he puts that card into his hand (or backlash if applicable), it is considered not to be played, and in his turn : when you have four plus cards with Hayman in the title you may put this card into his ring ringside or removed from the game instead."

Can he play it from hand if Dirty Low Blow restricts being reversed from hand?

Rules Forum / European Style versus Took that on the Chin
« on: January 27, 2018, 10:38:01 PM »
So on European style for Cesaro, Bulldog and William Regal the card says, "your opponent must discard one card to play reversals to your first and second Maneuvers played each turn with European in the title."

And as you all know Took that on the Chin says "can only be played after after a successfully played 8D or greater maneuver"

So my question is... if I do not have a reversal to the maneuver and it is successfully played, then as a reaction I play Took that on the Chin, do I still have to discard the card or two in order to play that reversal as a reaction to the successfully played maneuver that the opponent played?

Rules Forum / The black sheep mask
« on: January 23, 2018, 08:26:48 PM »
Okay so Braun Strowman's The Black Sheep Mask says,  "Your opponent's non-Superstar specific, non-maneuver cards do not count for his fortitude"

So what happens if you successfully play a hybrid maneuver / reversal and you play it as a reversal or you successfully play a hybrid maneuver / action and play it as an action... Once those cards are in your ring area do you have to keep track of whether they were played as reversals or actions on one side and then the hybrids that were played as Maneuvers on another side?... so you know which is active fortitude and which is non-usable fortitude based on the Black Sheep Mask effects?

Rules Forum / Douchebag
« on: January 23, 2018, 08:04:26 PM »
Does DON'T BE A DOUCHEBAG stop plunging? Like BIG SPLASH IN THE CORNER after it is played after THROWN INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLED.... does that +8F plunge count as a reversal restriction?

15
So I think this boils down to a timing question, but after reading the OMNI for 30 minutes on timing and the RESTRICTED USE IN THIS AREA (RUITA) errata, I need some help. Please tell me what you think:

OPPONENT 1 : On his turn, discards 2 cards to engage the ACE on THROWN INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLE TB, which states, "Once during each of your turns, you may discard 2 cards and then your next card played this turn is considered to be played after THROWN INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLE (TITCT)"

OPPONENT 2 : Cannot reverse the ACE

OPPONENT 1 : Plays 6F/10D BIG SPLASH IN THE CORNER TB(BSITC), which says, "Can only be played after the card titled TITCT", and says, "When played after the card titled TITCT, this card is +5D and your opponent's Reversal cards to this card are +8F"

OPPONENT 2 : Has only 4 Fortitude, but responds with 0F/0D RESTRICTED USE IN THIS AREA (RUITA), which says, "Can only be played after your opponent plays a card that he has modified by other cards.", and says, "Disregard all modifications made to that card by other cards until the end of the turn.", and says, "You may still play Reversal cards to that card."

RUITA has an RMS symbol and therefore is not subject to the +8F plunge.... so, Opponent 2 argues that while the BSITC was legally played by satisfying it's requirement of having TITCT played in front of it at the moment it was played.... the RUITA now ignores (disregards) that TITCT was ever played for the rest of the turn, SO... The BSITC no longer has the +5D or +8F plunge moving forward.

As a result, OPPONENT 2 discards 2 cards for Chain effect and plays 3F/5D BRASS "NUKS" SHOT, which says, "As a reversal, reverse any High Risk and end your opponent's turn".. and he ends OPPONENT 1's turn




Now.... Do you guys agree with this interpretation of the timing and was it a legal play?

Virtual Raw Deal / Strowman versus Lesnar
« on: January 20, 2018, 09:54:48 PM »
1)My dear Raw Deal manager friend needs some clarification about Braun versus Brock superstar abilities. Brock says "Your opponent's Strike Maneuvers played do no more than a maximum of 3D."... and Braun's ability says, "Your opponent's effects cannot reduce or blank the damage of your maneuvers".

I said Brock's ability still applies to reduce Braun's Strike's damage, because Brock's superstar ability is not an "effect", it's an ability, hence not impeded by Braun's ability restriction.

2) If I do have a card "effect" that reduces Braun's maneuver damage and that card has an RMS symbol, does the reduction stand because it's protected from the ability by the RMS?

thank you in advance for your input gentlemen

Virtual Raw Deal / YOUR FEATURE PRESENTATION card for VAL VENIS
« on: January 20, 2018, 01:55:24 PM »
YOUR FEATURE PRESENTATION Pre- Match card for VAL VENIS says, "this card and a manager with a female's name in the title cannot be blanked and do not take up a pre-match slot in your ring."

So my question is, and this is wishful thinking of course, is MANAGED BY THE WWE DIVAS pre-match manager considered to have a female's name in the title? lol

Virtual Raw Deal / Braun question
« on: January 17, 2018, 11:16:35 PM »
So on sister Abigail's Black Sheep it says when you play a maneuver as a counter it is -#F where X
# is equal to the stun value in your ring.

So my question is does this mean only when Braun plays Maneuvers that specifically say they can be played as a counter, like most of his Superstar specific Maneuvers do?
.... Or does this mean anytime Braun plays a maneuver as the first card played on his turn after he has reversed his opponent on his previous turn?

Rules Forum / 1+
« on: January 15, 2018, 10:07:35 PM »
When a card says it cannot be reversed by 1+ damage reversals, this means reversals with MORE than 1 damage, correct? So 2, 3, 4 etc... Will not be able to reverse it.... But 0 and 1 damage reversals will work, correct?

Rules Forum / RMS question
« on: January 15, 2018, 04:09:29 PM »
My opponent says that my Superstar ability is attempting to override the RMS symbol on one of my maneuvers. I however do not believe that my Superstar ability is attempting to modify my maneuver.

I have Sheamus:

SHEAMUS
Starting Hand Size: 9     Superstar Value: 4
Superstar Ability: Replace the "game" text with "turn" on your Pump Kick cards.
Your non-Volley Strikes cannot be reversed by hybrid reversals; when The Celtic Warrior is in your Backstage Area, your Grapples cannot be reversed by hybrid reversals instead.

I am playing a non volley strike with an RMS symbol.... My opponent is trying to reverse me with a hybrid reversal.

I am saying that he cannot reverse me because my strikes cannot be reversed by hybrid reversals. He is stating that the RMS symbol on the maneuver blocks that ability from the Superstar.

So the question is does the Superstar ability actually modify the maneuver? or is it just a general statement that all my strikes (non-volley) cannot be reversed by hybrid reversals... And not specifically altering the maneuver itself?

Rules Forum / Paul Heyman vs Feminine Wiles
« on: December 15, 2017, 10:02:27 PM »
Paul Heyman (Superstar Card)
Starting Hand Size: 0+
Superstar Value: 0+
GM Superstar Ability:
You may pack Stipulations and Enforcers in your Backstage area. Your Enforcers have no brands. Reveal 1 Enforcer card and choose 1 Enforcer. Then reveal any number of different Stipulation cards. You cannot pack Stipulations in your Backlash deck. Your Arsenal may only contain 50 cards. Once during each of your turns you may put 1 of your revealed Stipulation cards into your Ring area and then put 1 other Stipulation card in your Ring area out of your Ring area. Your opponent cannot play any card with the word "Heyman" in the title.

Feminine Wiles says; ...you may hide this card to blank 1 of his revealed non-Enforcer Backstage cards


SO..... can FW blank any of Heyman's revealed Stipulations at the end of pre-match if hidden? Are Stipulations considered revealed Backstage cards? I say they are definitely revealed since it states they are in Heyman's ability... but do they count as Backstage Cards at that moment? I am leaning towards yes...

Rules Forum / Layin' the Smacketh Down!
« on: December 14, 2017, 01:46:13 AM »
I know this has been asked before, but we have argued about it so much over the years that we cannot remember the correct ruling.

17/25
Layin' the Smacketh Down!
Mid-match Action
Cannot be reversed when played by The Rock or The People's Champ.
Search your Arsenal for up to 2 non-unique Maneuver or Action cards with the Smackdown logo, reveal them to your opponent, put them into your hand, and shuffle your Arsenal.
Smackdown logo
Unique
F: 5      D: 0

SO the question is... does the 2 cards both have to be non-unique if they are Actions? Does that non-unique verbage apply to the Actions too or just the maneuvers?

Virtual Raw Deal / Tough Enough Temptress
« on: December 03, 2017, 12:10:15 AM »
"You can pack up to 8 different non-Unique mid-match maneuvers in your backstage area"

So my question is can you have multiple copies of the same exact mid-match maneuver, or can it only be up to 8 Maneuvers that are all different titled maneuvers?... So could you have 3 copies of "shove" for example?
