2. Drew Gulak - wasn't a fan of him at the start, but boy did his powerpoint presentation sway my decision!

Is it weird that I like Drew Gulak mainly because he reminds me of Jason Sudeikis and because he uses a dragon sleeper with body scissors (The Gu-Lock) as a finishing move?

He could also totally be a distant relative of Ross Geller from Friends.

Just for my edification... what folks from NXT/205 Live are folks wanting to play in Raw Deal?
A very good question indeed, I think... :)

Honestly, Creed and co could call it a day and never make another Virtual set again. While that would indeed be a sad day, I could go on playing Virtual Raw Deal happily with a huge variety of decks to test and play. They've balanced the game to damn near perfection now and they've given us matchups we thought we'd never see. Other than the odd attitude era midcarder that didn't make the cut, we have almost everything we need. Except Head-Cheese Damnit! Lol

Well said Doctor (Dr_phillanomics)..... but if you get a Head-Cheese card for Al Snow and Steve Blackman, or even better, Chester McCheesy, lol.... then I want a Dink card for Doink, after all... Finley got Hornswaggle, lol... THEN they can pull a Steve Austin and take their ball and go home.... hehehe

Tell ya what, I'll make this promise to you guys.  Whenever the time comes that we just can't muster up the ambition and/or time for more sets, I will make sure that Steve Blackman is finally made.

(And no, don't list everyone ever hoping I'll squeeze them in too, heh)  Tim's done so much for this game, not just in the visual component, but laying out some great designs like The Shield & Wyatt Family plus their individual members.  All he's really asked for is Bayley and Steve Blackman, and we're halfway there.  :D

I would love a Drew Gulak.  Better make a rude Cedric Alexander to constantly interrupt Drew's PowerPoint Presentation. Ummmm..... Gallagher is unique as well. Ummmmm,..... Two more...errr.. Loiue Valle would be nice, well, for me. Don't know if anyone else would like to see him, but he just reminds me of someone. Can't quite place it.   OH and for the last one.  Rich Swann!!

Creed-

I apologize if this has been suggested before (I'm still newbs to this place) but has there ever been a thought of doing much smaller, more frequent releases? Like say every 2 months there's one new superstar? I'm not trying to sound all super greedy but I don't have my head behind the curtain; I don't know if this would make things easier/less stressful on the team or would just create a headache in the long term.

Yeah, those numbers could be tweaked for sure but I think it's a decent thought.

...Yeah that's not a good look. We already took to doing little sets for the holidays, as a smaller, more frequent release schedule.

I hear you, loud and clearish.

How about doing little sets for the holidays as a smaller, more frequent release schedule?

:D I mean, at this point we've put out 2 sets a year for the past 3 years, one 'big' release, one 'holiday set'. Trying to fit in  in more than that would be a lot, and ultimately releasing one-two superstars every couple months instead would oddly be -less- content overall

This sounds a lot like an excuse to delay the release of Steve Blackman; I'm onto your clever tricks.

then I want a Dink card for Doink

Please, dear god, no.

Wait, I guess that would mean that I'd get to try and stomp someone who had Dink out, that could be fun times. I'll allow it.

Thank you Creed for all that you've done for the game of Raw Deal and for its players worldwide.

My group in Montreal mostly plays Revo format, so we're certainly looking forward to Revo 6 in 2019 or 2020 :)

"If" would be the important word in that sentence.

It'll be ready when it's ready :D

Life tends to do run-ins whenever we try to call a release date ahead of time.
