Really, That's Enough Shinnegans

Really, That's Enough Shenanigans
Backstage Card
Your opponent cannot play more than 3 copies of Who's Cooler Than Michelle McCool?. and you are considered to have lower Superstar Value for his Yo! Kill Da Beat!.  When he is Andre the Giant, do not discard for his Ability, and when he hides We Face Each Other as God Intended, during your next Draw Segment, draw up to 2 additional cards.
Your Backstage cards with "shenanigans" in the title do not count as revealed for Backstage Shenanigans.

Why only Target Andre The Giant when it comes to that as shouldn't it be instead Whenever your opponent would make you discard any number of cards from hand for their ability put the same number on the bottom of your Arsenal instead as there's other Superstars that make your opponent discard Cards in hand to. Just kinda sucks Andre essentially becomes Useless to play as when your opponent plays this CARD. Just saying.

Because Andre was a problem and this was a way to fix it.

I'll ask you this, what other classic superstar that made your discard with their ability was as big of an issue as Andre?

Andre was one of the big 3 NPEs from Classic when we started Virtual.  The running joke was 'Oh, you're holding a non-Virtual tournament?  Who won? Andre, Kennedy, or Piper?'  All 3 were dealt with via Shenanigans to bring balance to the environment.

"Andre becoming useless" isn't really an accurate statement, though, since he's part of the Heenan family faction and got a remake in Virtual 4, not to mention two strong cards in Virtual 8 to prop him up.

Looking at part of the picture rarely displays the full view correctly.

Creed is correct a non virtual tournament became very  boring indeed. Creed and the others in the design committee have done a great job at balancing out the game and making it far more enjoyable. Its so much better going to a tournament and not knowing what to expect since virtual support busted open the doors to make nearly every superstar you would want to play to compete on the same playing field as the other superstars. There is not a single game i can think of where you will find such a diversity of decks. One of the great things about virtual is if something is found to ruin the gamimg ecperience it is easily brought to peoples attention and reviewed to see if indeed a change is needed and is quickly errated to bring back balance.
