Keith,

It's less about the date and more about the theme, "NXT Takeover" is the name of the set, so it's safe to say these are all Superstars new to the WWE (as opposed to nostalgia acts like most of V8), coming up through NXT.  I think they've all hit the main roster by now, in one form or another.

And the 'bigger' the name, the more likely their inclusion in this set.

CREED

Don’t have a crystal ball, but I’ll guess:  Creed said not surprising , so, Carmella, Baron Corbin, Adam Rose, Naomi, Dana Brooke, and to finish Team Bella, Alicia Fox.

While its always nice to get new superstars I think I we we would be fine if we never get a Mojo, Bo Dallas or Accession set. Tyler Breeze on the other hand is a must, but i would prefer to get a Fasion Police set instead.

I've seen this type of sentiment come up before, and it irritated me then. Turns out it still irritates me now.

The development team's responsibility isn't to pick a single player of the game, ask them what they and only they want, and produce exactly those things. Not you, not me, not even Creed, and he's the guy doing most of the design work. Just because you personally would be fine without Mojo or the Ascension doesn't mean that everyone shares that opinion, and the opinion of those who want to see them in the game is just as valid as yours. And besides, some of my favorite decks were of superstars who I could take or leave, on TV. (The best example of this for me was Big Poppa Pump. I find him boring as sin, but his ability is awesome.) Sometimes, it's worth taking a look at those guys, because maybe a great deck idea comes to mind for a guy who you otherwise don't have an interest in.

We all have a choice here: be happy new superstars are being made, or be annoyed that they aren't exactly the ones we would create given our druthers. Why, when the choice is between happiness and annoyance, would you actively choose to be annoyed?

I never meant any illwill with that post. My intentions were more so pointing out my personal fav which believe me i know my preference holds zero weight here, but more so pointing out there are superstars in far more demand like Asuka and Samoa Joe that i would think we should get beforehand again thats just my opinion.

In the end the end i will be happy as well all will with the fact that we’re getting another fabulous set from CREED and the rest of the gang.

So yeah, you nailed 6 of the Superstars and I've announced 2 others.  That leaves 14 - (6 + 2) = 6 Superstars, and when you figure the time frame that this was designed from, the last 6 names won't be that surprising.  :)

CREED

6 from EricRD + 2 from Creed:
Mojo Rawley
The Ascension
Emma
Tyler Breeze
Adrian Neville
Bo Dallas
Finn Balor
Shinsuke

With 6 slots left and the hint being PPVs around this period, here's the list of superstars narrowed down to the few PPVs around Feb 14 (NXT Arrival). I could be on to something, or totally off, but this is afterall just speculation! No points for guessing them wrong or right, but i did mark my guesses!

Royal Rumble (Jan 14): only El Torito surprisingly
Elimination Chamber (Feb 14): Curtis Axel, Cameron, Tamina Snuka, Zeb Colter?!?. There's Christian* too... so a legend version could be possible!
Wrestlemania (Apr 14): Los Matadores, Real Americans, Rybaxel, Aksana, Alicia Fox (would love to see her)*, Eva Marie*, Naomi*, Rosa Mendes, Yoshi Tatsu and Brad Maddox
NXT Takeover (May 14): Adam Rose, Camacho, Tyson Kidd*
NXT Takeover II (Sep 14): Lucha Dragons*, Bull Dempsey, Sylvester Lefort

I'm only asking for Finn Balor. I don't have a top 5 lol I'll see whoever else is in the set on release day. Finn is my main desire.

"Before your Draw Segment" effects, by definition, are triggered before your Draw Segment. As the only thing that is skipped is your Draw Segment, you may trigger those effects.

"During your Draw Segment" effects, on the other hand, are triggered during your Draw Segment. If your Draw Segment is skipped, so is the opportunity to trigger those effects.

Effects that skip your entire turn would skip both opportunities.
