Superstar Spotlight: Victoria
« on: February 06, 2017, 12:01:01 PM »
Please keep those requests coming. Today's is another 'request' in Victoria.

1.)  How viable is this superstar?
2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight? 
3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?
4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual
5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?

AND

6.) Since this Superstar is a Legacy one (in that he was in the game before Virtual) can you elaborate a little on how Virtual has changed this Superstar?

1. Victoria is a decent middle of the road superstar, she can red wall really well in some situation being a diva and using McMahon-ism + her ability to see the cards she is going to draw is REALLY nice.
2.The Voices are getting louder made most of her nearly unplayable actions playable and also got to finish the saying from her titan-tron(finally!) no more incomplete sayings.
3. I built her with Diva moves and mono-sub for the repeatable diva lock recovery.
4. She can hold her own against about anyone, she may not be the best Diva out there but she can put up a hell of a fight. I built her in VC but she may compete well in NXT as well due to her ability to see more cards consistently.
5. She is a solid deck that can be very hard to put away if she gets going and bad hands are just about never a problem for her.
6. Virtual made it so playing her manager doesn't cripple the rest of her pre as greatly as it used to. Yes i've lost my mind isn't all that useful as an action due to Old School Brawl being around now, landing Stevie Interferes can be slightly harder to do now due to all the unique cards virtual has brought, but hitting it still makes managed by Stevie very useful

5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?


1. I find her to be most valuable in VC. Mainly due to there is slightly less uniques there. She can better utilize Stevie.

2. I Ain’t the Lady to Mess With
Mid-match Reversal: Action
Reverse any non-unique Action card and end your opponent’s turn. Search your Arsenal for 1 Superstar-specific card, reveal it to him, put it into your hand, and shuffle your Arsenal.

If she's BASH allows her to tag some early action cards while fetching key specifics. Probably my favorite card of hers.

3. I've not had a chance to ever build her. I've recently just got a complete set. I'll likely be running her in the near future.

4. I'd prefer her to be in VC for my reason mentioned in my first post. VAA has a high chance to make Stevie useless.

5. I really like her & think she can hold her own verse just about anyone.
