SG Virtual Revolution Cycle 4
« on: January 07, 2018, 07:53:11 AM »

Welcome to SG Virtual Revolution Cycle 4 main page. With 3 successful cycles in the books, we are looking forward to an equally, if not better cycle! New match-ups, new stipulations and most of all, new experience! This cycle will consist of 6 tournaments, some of which with unique, never before seen stips in the past tournaments. At the end of each of the 6 tournaments, everyone will walk away with something.

Prize scheme for each tournament:
1. Door gift for participation (free)
2. Lucky Draw after each tourney (free)
3. Alt art superstar set for top prize(s)
    6 or less participants: 1st place gets top prize
    7 or more participants: 1st and 2nd gets top prize
    10 or more participants: top 3 gets prize

Points will be accumulated throughout the 6 tournaments, and here's the prize scheme:
1. Total pool will be split into 3 categories, top tier, middle tier and lower tier. Top Tier will get 2 alt art superstar sets of their choice, middle tier will get 1 alt art set of their choice, and lower tier will get 2 alternate title belts AND 1 faction ($ required)
2. Every participant for the cycle would be entitled to 1 extremist of their choice at the end of the cycle ($ required)
3. 1 Lucky draw would be applicable for ALL players not in the top few (sponsored) (TBC)
3. Lucky draw for 1 random alt art superstar sets for EACH tier (sponsored)

Here's how the scoring works:
1. Every participant will by default get 1pt for participation
2. For every victory (regardless CO, DQ), will be considered 1pt
3. At the end of the day if there's a tie, we will take into consideration who has more pins
4. If all else fails, a tie breaker match would determine the true champion (subjected to change depending on players)
5. Out of respect for players who spend time to change their decks, no one is allowed to replay any superstars that they have played in the same cycle.

Do take note that VR Royal Rumble time and date has been adjusted to fit player schedule.

Another modification to the rules that has been carried forward from the previous 2 cycles would be that players are not allowed to replay any superstar that they have used before in the same cycle, out of respect for all other players who make the effort to think and change their decks.

Cya guys there!

These are events for players in Singapore. That's what the 'SG' stands for.

Thanks Tim!

Yup we are from Singapore, thus the SG. We wanted to draw a bigger picture than just keeping everything as per each tournament, so we grouped them up as a cycle with an overall point system. Prizes are awarded based on per tournament basis and as an overall. As it is a consolidation of tournaments, all details and results are posted on the same post for easy reference.

Cycle 4 Tourney 1 results are out! After 1 year+ of coming within 2nd or 3rd place, Ironteeth finally managed to clean house and go with a 7-0 final scoring. Sportsmanship was on point where the more seasoned players would point out tips or obvious reversals that people would pack. Ultimately such events are to foster positive playing experience! Being nice always helps to retain and attract :)

Interesting facts from the tourney:

1. Of the 8 participants, 3 participants were present in cycle 1. That shows how the format has grown from then.

2. Each game lasted between 10 to 20min, and there is a fair balance between matches that are close fights (both players <5 cards in arsenal), and obvious winners. Total gameplay amounted to about 2hrs+ of game play. Comparing 7 games in 2hrs to 2 games in 2hrs, Revo is more quick paced (due to its simplicity) and aggressive nature.

3. while the stipulation did try to push for usage of 'underused' superstars, most players stuck to superstars that were used before, like Triple H and Goldberg. But it was ultimately a superstar that hasn't been featured before that walked away with an alt art superstar of his choice, as well as a ticket to cash in against a champ in any of the remaining tournaments in this cycle.

4. Of the 8 decks played, only The Rock went with the maneuver reversal hybrids, and even so, its just for the 0F 7D maneuvers as Cores do 1D to him. HHH2 and Golderg went with the Good Luck With That reversals.

5. Scissors Hold, Double Leg Lock Crab are still the 2 most popular maneuvers due to their versatility and the lack of equally strong counterparts.

6. Most importantly, HHH's Hammer came out only once in the entire tournament!

All in all, it is what you would expect from a standard PPV. You get matches that are walkovers, some with alot of technical play, and the main event between 2 experienced players.

 Looking forward to Tourney 2: Elimination Chamber. Till next time, onward with the <R>evolution!

Take note, there's a change in venue as the previous venue is fully booked. We are at Popeyes at 313 Somerset basement. Sorry for the last change!

Elimination Chamber was a blast! 8 person tournament, comeback of our first champion, return of an old player, and addition of a new player! Congratulations to Wen Huan for regaining your champion position, just like you did in the first SG VR tournament! Everyone walked away with a random door gift and congrats to Vincent for taking home the Alt art The Degenerates Faction.

On to my observations of the games:

1. Quite the opposite from the previous, because of the 8 decks that were played, 4 ran the maneuver reversal hybrids for their cores. It probably boils down to the need for drawing effect from Filling In The Blanks. This was a big difference from the first where only 1 of 8 decks ran those Cores.

2. Smarter placement of core reversals. We all knew that players are most likely to focus on having Scissors Hold, Elbow Smash and Snap Bulldog as their starting maneuvers since they can be picked up from ringside every turn. I observed that unlike the previous games where we would blanket pack the 3D and 4D reversals, players are getting smarter by packing reversals to counter those 3 maneuvers. This would also give them the necessary fort to play more things next turn. For example, Jeff Hardy packed 3 of each 4D reversals, just so it would be a perfect bridge from that reversal to Flying Forearm (4F 5D), which leads to Missile Dropkick (9F 15D).

3. Handsize manipulation is key. As mentioned, Filling In The Blanks is so popular because it not only adds cards into your hand, it also puts 1 not-so-useful card at the bottom. Apart from that, Cesaro always had a good starting hand because of WWE's Powerhouse and Swiss Superman that gave him a preview of the top of his arsenal and sieving out what to draw and what not to draw. The shocker was probably Stone Cold because he had a measly starting hand of 5 (+1 if Ruckus), but yet have the best hand advantage because he can put those unwanted cards in hand at the bottom and draw the same number. Cards like Shoulder Block and Thrown Into The Ring Apron also gave him insight of what to expect for the next draw.

Overall, it was a competitive yet extremely fun session for everyone! Hopefully more will pick up the format.

Until next time, Onward with the <R>evolution!

p.s. We are in talks with a store to host a Wrestlemania event! Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

It's a little late, but we finally confirmed the venue! This year round for Wrestlemania, we are proud to partner with a local gaming store, Toys Or Games (TOG)! They will be providing the venue, as well as streaming of our games in store. A photographer will also be on site for the event to record down the day's activities. This might be common for other places like US or Chile, but seeing that this is the first time in a long time that we get such a big open event to the public, so I really hope anyone who is in the area to drop by and check it out! There will be free crash course for Revo format if anyone is interested.

You may find more details on the event page below. Hope to see you guys!

VR Wrestlemania was a huge success with 9 player turnout (3 last min dropouts or we'll be 12). This time round we have a vendor sponsor that provided the play area, as well as a stage and live broadcast in store, and on Facebook Live. Link can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/rawdealSG/videos/493870351011220/

I think this was a big step towards having the format getting recognised in Singapore as the local wrestling community, Wrestling Lah, has shown interest in picking up the game or supporting it in some form. This is awesome news as we haven't had such a large scale event since... the end of official CI tournaments? Regardless, the future is most important, and I am glad we could bring this much attention to the game that has been out of print.

On to the tournament overview. Gameplay was interesting as usual because we got to see 2 returning players, as well as the crowning of a new top of the chart, Vincent! It goes to show that with constant participation, you need not be 1st in every tournament to get to the top. Of the 9 decks, only 1 used the maneuver reversal hybrids, but definitely more players chose the Extreme route this time, with 4 of 9 decks playing them. As per most tourneys, there are some one-sided games, and then there are some extremely close fights. I was lucky to have both recorded in the live video, with the close fight going from 00:00 to 13:30 and the one sided game from 17:30 to 23:40.

This is the updated version of the superstar stats and tourney results. Feel free to use it as reference for your own group games! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UbQ0xOziaodnJ4kJLue1u3K2GIl3BZPHd8J8_c7fbls/edit?usp=sharing
