Superstar Spotlight: nWo Hollywood
« on: February 28, 2018, 02:27:21 AM »
Alright, here it is the return of Superstar Spotlight! Just for a refresher, if you are curious about ANY superstar send me a message and I'll spotlight your request. This will include Revolution superstars as well. I will also allow for previously done superstars to be revisited as well. This game changes with every set, so I have no issue with repeated superstars. That being said here is our next superstar.

Please keep those requests coming. Today's is another 'request' in nWo Hollywood!!!!!



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?

1.)  How viable is this superstar?

They are of the most flexible dark horse superstars in Raw Deal, trait wise. Sure, you're restricted to NWO and Chain, Heat and Volley but that isn't a bad thing. Instead of going one route on a vanilla basis you're free to mix in one or two of the others and play around with it. Remember, "Cheater" text works for All Together Now.

2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight?

Strength in Numbers
Backstage Card
When All Together Now is in your Ring, your Heat cards are not removed from the game when you move a card from your Ringside.
Your Multi nWo Run-in cards are Chain and Volley: 4, and your Superstar-specific maneuvers are nWo cards.
Your opponent's The Numbers Game is blank.
Unique     RMS logo     nWo logo
V6
 
3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?

I built them upon release straight vanilla Heat. It was boring and didn't work well. When I build them again I'm going Chain and Volley to empty the hand and nuke the ringside per NWO Poison.

4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual

I think they'd fare equally well in all formats, honestly.

5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?

As mentioned above, straight Heat isn't a fantastic idea; I'd combo it with Chain and or Volley. Just don't muddle your deck with too many decent ideas because then you won't succeed at any of them. Chain/Volley is where it's at; I just wish you could pack Handicap Match with All Together Now. :(

(Flurry of Finishers works though!)
