Virtual Raw Deal / Re: Virtual 7 Preview Thread
« on: July 23, 2015, 07:49:12 AM »
Did you consider giving his Superstar card an RMS logo to prevent switching tactics to keep with the theme of him having no ability?

This was our fourth month in a row holding Raw Deal events. Sadly we did not get a double digit turnout, but I blame the summer for it.
Prizing was a King of the Ring Backstage Signing Appearance alternate card and $25 store credit for first, $10 for second, $5 for third as well as a random $5 and King of the Ring for anyone who did not win a prize. All players got an alternate art You're as Graceful as a Cow on Ice.

I played The Spirit Squad with Dynamic maneuvers and using Johnny.

Here is the event breakdown
Cam - Shelton Benjamin
Colin - Batista
Dave - Lita
Eric - The Spirit Squad
Patrick - Edge
Ryan - Big Freakin' Machine
Saran - The Phenom
Scott - Rene Dupree

First Round
Dupree 1 - 0 P. Shelton 0 - 1
S. Squad 1 - 0 P. Batista 0 - 1
BFM 1 -  0 P. Edge 0 - 1
Lita 1 - 0 P. Phenom 0 - 1

Second Round
S. Squad 2 - 0 P. Lita 1 - 1
BFM 2 - 0 P. Dupree 1 - 1
Phenom 1 - 1 P. Batista 0 - 2
Edge 1 - 1 P. Shelton 0 - 2

Third Round
S. Squad 3 - 0 P. BFM 2 - 1
Dupree 2 - 1 P. Lita 1 - 2
Phenom 2 - 1 P. Edge 1 - 2
Shelton 1 - 2 P. Batista 0 - 3

Fourth Round
Dupree 3 - 1 P. S. Squad 3 - 1
BFM 3 - 1 P. Phenom 2 - 2
Shelton 2 - 2 P. Lita 1 - 3
Batista 1 - 3 P. Edge 1 - 3

Top 4
Dupree P. BFM
S. Squad P. Phenom

Third Place BFM pinned The Phenom
Finals Rene Dupree pinned The Spirit Squad

Random prize King of the Ring went to Pat. Colin won the $5 store credit.

Glad to see everyone that was able to make it out this month. See you in August for our Fifth Month Anniversary.

General Discussion: Raw Deal / Re: Virtual Pre-match Length?
« on: July 10, 2015, 10:06:07 AM »
While the pre-match phase can be a little long, how many time have you seen the rock or stone cold just walk out and wrestle?

This game is supposed to reflect an actual professional wrestling match.  In the world of wrestling, there just so happens to be stuff that happens between the hitting of music and the first collar and elbow tie up.  Some superstars have more prematch options, but that is a reflection of their character.  Take HHH for example: I mean the guy has one of the longest wrestle mania entrances (next to taker of course).  Why shouldn't his prematch reflect this?
And that's when people make a trip to the bathroom or the kitchen.  The entrance is usually not 25% of the entire match. While you are correct that the game is supposed to represent an actual wrestling match, it is also supposed to be fun and some players/potential players find that a long prematch sucks the fun out of the game.

There have been times playing Classic that I have a chance for a bathroom break while they are resolving their Pre-match phase. I couldn't imagine a Virtual game.
I've tried watching some games on Youtube and couldn't get past the amount of purple cards I was seeing in play.

I am of two minds on the long Pre-match, but I agree with Creed that it can't be put back into the bottle. Pre-match phases were getting long even in GAB, and letting people play their specific PMs without gobbling up all of their slots is, in general, a good change because it lets you focus your PM on the stuff that you actually need instead of filling up on shinies.

But when you're giving a Superstar a large amount of specific Pre-match cards with some that can be played during any phase strong effects and also allowing them to play these strong non-specific purple cards on top of it is a bad idea. A card like Break You or IAATG can only do so much and I don't want to have to play John Cena just so I can pack Yo Kill Da Beat so can try and shift the meta.

General Discussion: Raw Deal / Virtual Pre-match Length?
« on: July 09, 2015, 06:18:02 PM »
While Lawnmowerman may have taken the wrong approach with his critiquing of the Virtual cards, I think he starting a dialogue that I feel people were afraid to start due to the potential backlash that could have come from some members of this community. I wasn't going to add my opinion to this until I read piperspit's post seeing that we can have a conversation about this that isn't all one sided.

My observations of the Virtual card base is that it makes the game very Pre-match focused. I think the route it should have taken from the get go is set back and look a the power shift that Unforgiven and sets forward brought to the game and learn from that. It's nice to see more support for the game with full sets and new Superstars, Specifics and non branded cards, but when there are unbalanced effects, text heavy cards, rule breaking effects (play during any phase, etc), and a lack of fun in some people's opinion, that takes away a lot from what is being made.

At our local event we don't run Virtual cards an we've been getting over ten people each time without the problems of Andre, Kennedy and Piper. We have seen new deck ideas and Superstars you wouldn't expect making an impact out of nowhere. Are we against running the Virtual cards in the future? With the comments that get made about it, so far there are no plans. Down the road if the print run gets stale? It's a possibility. But I'm perfectly fine playing my 5 Pre-match cards a game for a while.

These are cards that I've been making for the local tournaments. I have images of others I have made in my June tournament report.

Standard deck construction rules apply. Classic only. No Revolution or Virtual cards. OMG EXCLUSIVE Prize cards are allowed.
$5 entry with store credit and promos for prizing.

You cannot pack cards that increase Superstar Values.

Yes it does. You will be unable to run any enforcer cards or title belts that have a +0 or greater.

Deck Reviews - Classic / Re: stacey keibler
« on: May 18, 2015, 04:44:32 PM »
I like the maneuver base in it. The reversals seem a little lacking. Why did you choose only one Manager Interferes? Maybe take out a Break the Hold and something else for a set of three?

Our second tournament this year in Barrie saw an 11 player turn out for store credit!

I played a TLC Match Edge & Christian, searching out Blindside Elbow and Beal Toss in the pre-match. Distracting Diva to give me a turn to Teddy and build up my hand. Most games I was able to DLB into the Blindside Elbow, but beyond that the deck wasn't able to do a whole lot else. Against The People's Champ I was able to play Title Belt Clubberin' as a reversal and draw 11 from Neck Torque, but that was about it. I enjoy the theme of this deck but will be taking out the TLC match and adding some recovery cards to make this a less noncompetitive deck. It was a fun day regardless though getting to hang out with a bunch of friends and Scotty.

Prizing was:
First $35
Second $20
Third $10
Random Draw $5

Here is the superstar breakdown
Adam H - Triple H
Adam S - Chyna
Cameron - Randy Orton
Colin - Eddie Guerrero
Dave - Torrie Wilson

Tournament Reports / Barrie, Ontario Aussie Draft April 26
« on: April 26, 2015, 08:01:29 PM »
Today we had a 10 player turnout of an Aussie draft. We had 20 starter decks to use with pack from Mania, Velocity and two from Insurrextion.
Each player randomly pulled 3 decks from a bag and chose one to use for the day, this is what everyone got.

Adam H - HBK
Adam S - Cactus Jack
Cameron - Booker T
Eric - The Rattlesnake
Scott - Gail & Molly Holly
Pat - The Crippler
Tim - Rey Mysterio
Matt - Team Angle
Colin - Eddie Gurerrero
Dave - Rikishi

We played 4 rounds of Swiss with a top four with store credit for prizing.

Round 1
Adam H (1-0) pinned Matt (0-1)
Cameron (1-0) pinned Eric (0-1)
Pat (1-0) pinned Adam S (0-1)
Tim (1-0) pinned Colin (0-1)
Dave (1-0) pinned Scott (0-1)

Round 2
Adam H (2-0) pinned Dave (1-1)
Cameron (2-0) pinned Pat (1-1)
Matt (1-1) pinned Tim (1-1)
Adam S (1-1) pinned Colin (0-2)
Eric (1-1) pinned Scott (0-2)

Round 3
Cameron (3-0) pinned Adam H (2-1)
Adam S (2-1) pinned Tim (1-2)
Pat (2-1) count out Matt (1-2)
Dave (2-1) pinned Eric (1-2)
Scott (1-2) pinned Colin (0-3)

Round 4
Cameron (4-0) pinned Dave (2-2)
Adam S (3-1) pinned Adam H (2-2)
Pat (3-1) pinned Eric (2-2)
Scott (2-2) pinned Tim (1-3)
Matt (2-2) pinned Colin (0-4)

Top 4
Cameron (5-0) pinned Adam H (2-3)
Pat (4-1) pinned Adam S (3-2)

For third place Adam S pinned Adam H in the Battle of the Adam rematch.
The finals saw Cameron (6-0) pinned Pat for the top prize.

Some great SS specific pulls were Cactus getting Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance, Booker T getting Xtreme Sendoff and Holla if you Hear Me, and Team Angle drafting I Love my Testicles, Yo Dawg Respect the Bookaman only to not play them because of the Raw branding.
