So still more against than for, from when I glanced at it last.  Point stands though.


Very classey response by the 'E.

Sad, although to me, with his weight and health issues, I'm not surprised and kind of suspected this day would come sooner than later.  Hopefully he able to enjoy that extra time.


Last time the same couple people pushed for the Oddities, there was a poll in Discord about putting them in.  The people voted 2-to-1 against it.

Just sayin'.

But really that's a different case, as they could be made without any moral objections, but their priority is fairly low.  If the game lasts long enough to do more 'nostalgia' stuff, it's not impossible, but there's SO much new talent coming in to catch up to.


Just not worth it, sorry.  It happens, some miss the boat, right time right place, etc.


And Ronda's WM match was way better than I expected!  There's people ahead of her in line already, but I'm definitely interested in getting her into the game.  :)

Virtual isn't legal for Tornado Tag, way too much to troubleshoot for a 'fun format'. 


Virtual Raw Deal / 2018 Con Promos
« on: June 17, 2018, 10:57:19 AM »
Hello everyone!  It's time to announce our Con promos for this year, so you guys know what to expect.  Just a reminder first, these will be made available (just without the GenCon stamps) after GenCon, so we're asking players limit themselves to one set per person, for those in attendance only.

The primary promo card is:

Unintended CONsequences
Reversal: Special
This card is +5F for each Sidewalk Slam in your Ring.
Reverse any card that 'cannot be reversed' or any Unique antic, and put up to 1 card in your Ringside with 'GenCon' in the text into your hand.
When there are no non-F: 0 non-Chain maneuvers with printed reversal restrictions in your Ring, your Fortitude Rating is +1 for every non-Chain card in your opponent's Ring with a printed reversal restriction.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique

A sister card to One Thing To Say, with a small 'Con' effect perk.  In addition, to help balance the Revolution (and to an extent, VAA) environment, we're throwing back some of the basic reversals, and introducing two new cards.

Revolution Masochist at Heart - Throwback
Reversal: Colossal
Requirement: Overturned
When your Fortitude Rating is 5 or less, the Colossal's Fortitude is lower than your opponent's Fortitude Rating, or he is Revolution Test: ignore the Requirement.
When he is Revolution Test or he has 10+ greater Fortitude: this card can be played from Ringside.
F: 0     D: 0

Revolution I Won't Be Beat Tonight - Throwback
Reversal: Colossal
When your Fortitude Rating is 5 or less: -7F.
When it is not: put D: 1+ cards from your Ring into your Ringside until you have removed D: 4+.
When he is Revolution Test or he has 10+ greater Fortitude: -7F and can be played from Ringside.
F: 7     D: 0

Revolution Losing the Crowd's Favor
Reversal: Non-Trademark Colossal
When you have 7+ lower Fortitude, or your opponent's Fortitude Rating is lower than the Colossal's printed Fortitude: this card is F: 0.
When you have more Colossals in Ring: discard 1 random card.
When he is Revolution Test: -15F and can be played from Ringside.
F: 15     D: 0     Unique

Revolution Ruling From the Commissioner
Pre-match: Event
Requirement: No Corner in your Ring.
Cannot be blanked.
When you have fewer antics in Ring: your opponent's antics are also considered actions for your reversals, and you may put this card into your Ringside to reverse a non-Superstar-specific Unique antic.
You cannot play Corners.
Unique     Permanent

A few points in a rough FAQ on this:
* All cards listed will be available shortly after GenCon for download and print
* They will also be in Virtual 9, with different images for the set versions.
* All promos are legal for GenCon.
* There will be a FunkCon version for those players in attendance, though whether they are legal for that event is at the discretion of whoever is judging / running the event.

Plus you still get to recover the Action for reuse later.

Thanks, haha.

No, it's fine though I think we've run the course.

I was probably a jerk about it, sorry for that.  It just bugs me when people ask me if they can read properly (not you Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiick, just in general).  In my brain, it's like someone holding up Kick and saying 'Is this a Strike?!'  I've actually yelled at PTers for doing that, haha.

I'll try to remember not to be a jerk next time, but no promises.  :D

The response is because the question, at it's heart, is not one of the rules but a reading comprehension question.  If you look at it objectively, the question is "Here's the text of the card, does it say what it says?" 

There's nothing that involves the rules of the card, you're asking for verification that it does what it says it does.  The answer is already given by you in the first post by quoting the text of the card, you proved your own point!  :)

So I'm not sure what the real question is, like 'Isn't that too strong?' or 'Doesn't that mean that X plus Y will have this effect?'  That's the question people are usually actually asking, not if they are capable of reading text, heh.

Hopefully my response is clearer now.  Because the answer has always been yes, the card does what it says it does.  Asking the same question again by naming a specific example doesn't change that, so eventually I'm wondering what the point is, you know where I'm coming from here?

Yeah, the answer's always been 'It works the way it says it works'.  If there's further questions about why, that's not a rules topic.  If there's a more specific question about something else, fire away.

Otherwise, this horse has been beaten into a fine red paste... :D

This is the same question.


Rules Forum / Re: Self High-Five
« on: June 07, 2018, 06:58:47 PM »
This is a 'that's what it says' question, so was there another one that was more specific?  :)


General Discussion: Raw Deal / Re: Cryme tyme
« on: June 07, 2018, 02:46:57 PM »
Basically, yeah, heh.

If we change anything else about the card, we'll drop Cryme Tyme - but I doubt anyone wants to run back to the printers to make even newer copies of Mean Gene, haha.

Aw man, congrats! As someone who dived back in to get a Masters... may it pay off more than the student loan debt! ;)
Thankfully the community college classes aren't too bad, but when I move up to Cal State University... yeah, we'll see how that goes, haha.

Good luck! I kinda know what you're about to go through, have my accounting degree and before finishing my masters I actually got a better offer to do something else with my career so moved on from the CPA path, and am only looking for my MBA at this point for my new path.
Niiiiiiice!  :)  I've thought about that too, most likely I'll look at my options once I get to the Bachelor's, thought I would like to eventually go for an MBA down the road.


General Chat / Good news / Bad news
« on: June 06, 2018, 02:11:37 PM »
So the bad news first, that's always nice, knowing you have something to look forward to...  (And some may not find this news all that bad, heh)  But I'm probably not going to be as active on here as I usually am.  I can pop in and make sure all's well, of course, but my limited free time is going to become a LOT more limited.

The good news (for me, heh) is that I'm going back to school.  I'll be starting college classes next week toward the goal of becoming a CPA, with a long road ahead, starting with some incredibly droll prerequisite classes over the summer (English and Government).

Thankfully Revisions are in the bag for this year, and I finished a big PT update, so those are already taken care of.

Nah, it was a very short lived team, and HHH is already in the <R> DX team.

Now <R> NAO could be fun, especially since they were considered and designed for VR5 but we cut them to lock it down to 20.  If and when we get to VR6, they'll likely be an easy add.


Virtual Raw Deal / Re: Virtual card error
« on: June 06, 2018, 09:35:11 AM »
We can check on that, the idea was Austin was already top tier at the time, giving him a powerful card seems like a bad idea.  So we tried to make something 'fluffy' instead.

Whoops, heh, amazing that no one caught it for all these years.

I'll put it on next year's Revision list.

« on: June 04, 2018, 03:52:36 PM »
Yeah, no worries, it's not about you.  Just preventing a bunch of other 'Could we also get...?' requests on the heels of that.  :)

Thankfully the Revisions are all done for the year, it's a major undertaking.  May they rest in peace!  :D


Virtual Raw Deal / Re: 2018 Revision Discussion
« on: June 04, 2018, 03:05:00 PM »
Good point!

Now imagine the tedium of doing that to EVERY DOCUMENT with changes across 10 years of Virtual... and someone asks for even more, from this free service.

Yeah, I'm tempted to lock this, as the answer was given, along with helpful advise, and there's no real sense in repeating those points ad infinitum.

tl;ldr version - use the .docs to edit if you want, or print the .pdfs 'as is', whatever works best for each person.  Those are the only options offered.  :)


Rules Forum / Re: Old School Cage Match + Kidney Punch
« on: June 04, 2018, 09:38:24 AM »
Superstar specific cards establish exceptions to rules, not the rules themselves, and the OP didn't ask about Heidenreich's Pre-match. Dilbert's information is correct as written.

Rulings made at other tournaments don't create game rules.

We'll get something added to the Virtual FAQ for future reference, but again, what Dilbert said is correct.  Kidney Punch can't resolve the cost of it's effect inside an OS Cage Match, as intended in design.


Virtual Raw Deal / Re: 2018 Revision Discussion
« on: June 04, 2018, 07:04:46 AM »
No.  That's why there are .doc and .pdf files.

If you want them as is, use the .pdfs.  Otherwise, get the .docs and you can edit to your heart's desire, copy card X a few more times, get rid of that Superstar you never play, and so on.

There just isn't time to provide custom download options for everyone, it's a 'do it yourself' kit instead.  :)

« on: June 02, 2018, 04:08:41 PM »
As a footnote, after a decade of having the OmniFAQ locked up at, where we didn't want to bother it because someone might reference it there... it seems time to update a couple ancient relics that aren't accurate, or are misleading.

I just finished a massive Raw Deal project, so don't expect this soon, but I'll work with Daeva on updating a few things in the Omni in the not-to-distant future to remove old, out-of-date references/rulings.

Oh yeah.  And special thanks to Elceh, for pointing out several mismatches in text and card images, which might not have been spotted without his eagle eye.  :)
