2017 Raw Deal World Championship Presented by Velacards
« on: August 04, 2017, 08:31:11 AM »
Alright folks, We are just a hair over two weeks away from the best four days in gaming Gen Con! Where we will be holding our 2017 Raw Deal World Championship Presented by Vela Cards! Remember to stop by and browse his current inventory to stock up on Raw Deal & Super Show for Gen Con! You can access him one of three ways on Twitter @Velacards (He's been leaking prize support there) Velacards.com or on his Facebook page Velacards. Tony goes out of his way every year to provide us with FREE support to help us. Please if you go make sure to thank him. Some of these sigs are NOT always easy to get. Now that we have our sponsorship mentioning taken care of let's get to business.




As we prepare for the World Championships, there are a couple of important announcements that bears repeating.

A.) Typed decklists are REQUIRED and MANDATORY for the World Championships.  There are reasons for this and there are no exceptions.  This is not a frugal exercise, ask the people who made the cut most notably in 2013, there WILL BE deck checks. Onesie-twosie changes made in pen the night before are acceptable.  However if it isn't legible they will not be accepted.
If you do not have a ticket from the pre sale. Do not worry we will NEVER turn anyone away from playing. Just simply go get two generic tickets from one of the booths.

*****Also PLEASE use the most recent print of ALL virtual cards. There will be a print out of all virtual cards with their most recent print. If you feel the opponent is using an out of date version of a virtual card please notify a judge to clear the matter up. You can find the 2017 Revisons in the Virtual Raw Deal section.

B.) I will be running a majority of the tournaments onsite, so if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me.  Drew, Mitch & myself will be the Judges for Worlds. Couple of notes I wanna post here. Virtual Classic will be 50 Minutes, Virtual All Access will be 50 Minutes & Virtual Revolution will be 45 Minutes. There will be no exceptions made. If you go to time with your opponent you each will LOSE that round. If you get to the 10 minute mark a judge will announce how much time is left.

C.) The Raw Deal World Championships is serious business, please treat it as such.  It is also a place where fellow Raw Deal Players from across the country/globe will be traveling to play Raw Deal.  Be respectful and be treat your fellow players how you would like to be treated.  I won't tolerate any berating or shenanigans of any kind. Having said that do not test me with your whining, complaining, or anything along those lines. 

D.) Above all, remember Raw Deal is also a game. Have fun!

E.) Finally, I want to loudly again promote Velacards for his gracious prize support. Worlds wouldn't be what it is without you sir! I can safely say there will be an actual championship presented to the winner. The ever confident Mr.PeoplesTeam is putting his first ever championship up for grabs. Aside from that Tony has some VERY nice prize cards in store for those who play over the best four days in gaming Gen Con!


Can't wait to see you all in a couple short weeks!

Unfortunately, nobody is going to be willing to print that many cards. Haha that would definitely eat up a ton of ink. However what we will be doing is have copies of the updated card(s) text. Kind of like a master print sheet. On behalf of Mitch, Drew & myself, we STRONGLY encourage people to use the most recent print. We do have plans in place if there are older versions of cards being used.

The prize list I started is now complete. This is all that I have for this year's event. Sorry if the lot looks smaller and less impressive than previous year's loots. It's been a rather rough year in many ways, so this is what I could come up with for this year.

Many thanks to entire Design Team for putting together this year's GenCon exclusive prize cards (working on getting them cut, trimmed and rounded right now). Also thank you to those that are bringing a few things to add to the prize pot. Should be a cool lot of prizes when it's all said and done!

Good luck to all!

Thanks,
VC

Tony,

We really just can't thank you enough, and I have to chuckle when you provide this large list of prizes at not cost to the players, then have the nerve to apologize for not giving more.  :D

Much appreciate, thank you again.

Aside from the numerous grammatical errors in all your posts, much like how the current President is most certainly "NOT OUR president" you also qualify as being "NOT OUR champion."

See you in Indianapolis, John-boy.

Sounds more of a case of someone just not WANTING to accept the fact that I am their Champion because last time I checked the record books show "2016 World Champion" and under that says one name. John Polverino

Like it or not, terrible grammar skill or not, you will see me in Indianapolis. I hope your out for blood Drew, I believe we have a tie breaker that needs to be settled

Hmmm... Last time I checked, we haven't crowned a 2017 Champion. Maybe I'm just too old to know the difference.

They are pretty amazing, aren't they? The Powers That Be who designed them, did an amazing job! Next time, these kinds of cards will be printed by are card printing service. There just wasn't enough time (or money) to get them done this year.

They look like the best looking reprints yet (not to knock last year's Bray which was epic too).....I think these are my favorite cards to hunt down over the weekend....well aside of getting the "four horsemen bounty" two years ago!!!
