Virtual Raw Deal / Dean Ambroses Heat hybrid manubers
« on: November 26, 2019, 03:12:05 AM »
 My group is about to release virtual set 7 in the new year and had a quick question relating to two of dean ambroses hybrid manuvers.

Dean's Sleeper
Submission: Heat / Reversal: Strike
As a maneuver, when played from hand, this card is -6F and Multi.
F: 12     D: 8     SV: 1     Unique

Ambrose's Regal Stretch
Submission: Heat / Reversal: Submission
As a maneuver, this card is -5F.
When successfully played, you may search your Arsenal and Ringside for Maintain Hold, reveal it, put it in your hand and shuffle.
F: 20     D: 15     SV: 1     Unique

These two to be exact.

I was wondering if the heat trait covers the card as a whole or if it just covers the manuver aspect of the card.

Any clarity shall be appreciated.

With the revival do you just ignore active/ inactive on the tag reversals? I cant see anywhere if it says ignore that text. Unless ive missed something.

Edit - tag team shenanagins.

Gargano looks like a lot of fun.

For those with sticker shock: You can only have 60 cards in your arsenal and 24 cards in your backlash. Gargano isn't going to be some multi-trait unstoppable machine. He reminds me of Regal in the aspect of you can do a great many things; question is: Which will you choose?

Thats the thing. There is so much available for all traits you can mishmash you dont have to dwell down one specific path.

Yes he has a basic arsenal and backlash amount but thats more than enough to get decent recharge every turn. There is only so much times people can reverse aces then once there gone or not available to use at that time its realistic to see him getting an easy 3-5 card recharge every turn.

Realistically most decks rely on their early manuvers and the manuver reversals so after you have covered the bum there is limited spaces for ace reversals.

 Any well seasoned player will run riot with gargano no problem at all.

 But hey my groups only been on virtual for a few years and slowly releasing the sets so each set gets a fair shake rather than jist releasing everything at once so we wont get v10 till mid 2020 i believe. So hopefully hes nerfed by then.

It’s easy to judge cards without having them in hand, or even playing them.
Cards are tested by a team regular players of the game on a casual and competitive level. I’ve been reading a lot of comments about how good he is, but these all have counters that would prevent them from happening.
Once the set releases I would love to hear feedback about this Superatar set, and others. If there are still large issues then things can always be changed accordingly. Until then, I am going to trust my team’s judgement.

See heres the thing. Youre right. There is counters for all that he does. But its easy enough to counter in play testing when you know you are about to play him.

In competitions or in casual play are we just expected to build specifically to counter only gargano in the hope we play him but can put us at odds against other people.

His range is far too wide.

Not sure if the tone and feedback had to be that negative in my opinion. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I would say he is just average at best. Remember we are still taking about Technical and Dynamic, which are extremely weak maneuvers even with all the existing support.

If he goes full chain build, he gets +2D from Chain Reaction, recover 2 for Calgary (if he even plays it) if unsuccessful, or recover 2 for Technically Sound and Brutal (TSaB) if successful.

If he goes full heat build, he gets +2D from Spontaneous Combustion, and if it is successful, he gets to recover 2 for TSaB.

If he goes full volley build, he gets 0D reversals for Opening Volley and if it is successful, he gets to recover 2 for TSaB. And doesn't Takin' a BASH work almost the same as Volley Call, depending on the number of Volley instead of BASH?

They all sound pretty fair to me. The chain build pales in comparison to Freak'n Hero or Junkyard Dog, the Heat build pales in comparison to Snitsky (obviously), and the Volley build pales in comparison basically to any deck that plays Volley.

Well, that's just my 2 cents. Once it is released, we will all have a better grasp of how Johnny performs.

See but this is the thing he doesnt have to go full anything. He can have bits and bobs of everything bar the techs and dynamics and at the drop of a hat his stuff can be anything

 So imagine mid game gargano gets a move through then says oh my moves are now heat then he gets the potential to get high powered high risks from ringside.

Or oh my opponent only has 1 card in hand my move is now chain.

As someone mentioned volley call. That could be a near full ringside recovered at the drop of a hat.

There is no need to give him such a wide variety of stuff.

Wheres the downside. All im seeing is good. No balance.

Ive no problem with ellias his ability is good good cards. But he is balanced in my opinion and he has a downside to the good abillity in not being able to pack divine.

I hope that the rest of the Superstars are balanced, because Gargano is nonsense, he should have some drawbacks.

He should be unable to pack dynamically inclined, find out how to fight from finlay (just asking to make everything submissions and rely heavily on unorthodox style).
Dont see why he should be exempt from shoot lockup or hold the phone when you can make all your moves chain...
To avoid stupid regeneration, you could at least ban Matt striker or luck of the draw or calgary ur looking at around 3-5 card regen every turn.

I really hope the rest are not this broken.

Agreed dude. Its wild.

Im not looking forward to seeing ronda. Everything with arm and judo in the title can't be responded to. I'm calling it if looking at gargano is any indication of whats to come haha

Gargano is wild. Wheres the balance? I hope all of v10 is not as broken as gargano. Unbelievable how good he is with no downside.
