30 Days of Raw Deal Christmas
« on: November 25, 2018, 10:06:39 AM »
The wait is almost over!  30 days from today on Christmas Day, we'll release Virtual 9, the 'A section' (new Superstars and a few additional cards).  There might be some other presents under the tree as well, heh...

To build toward that, I'll be revealing one card (maybe more) from the new set.  No requests taken, sorry.

Starting off, let's 'Gather Around' to see the first of the new stuff, along with a refresher of this Superstar:

I'm so amused that The Vaudevillains will mark an ability I proposed nearly -6 years ago- finally seeing 'print' :D

Obviously, it didn't start as a Vaudevillains ability :D

No, but that definitely makes it 'old(e)-fashioned' in Virtual development lore - speaking of which!

Thanks!  I wondered if anyone would catch that.  :)  It was fun to make these look 'vintage', especially since that Pre-match pic was black & white already.  Sometimes, though, you need to have a little bit of color:

Only 3 support cards? I'm not complaining just asking for clarification. :)

My bad the "few" cards to me were non superstar cards. Sorry for the confusion.

OH!  I see what you mean now.  Yeah, "New Superstars" as in full sets (with one exception, Ascension is kind of a promo Superstar, and has a smaller set.)

Blue Pants is now on a Raw Deal card and joins the great ranks of Ralphus, The Repo Man, The Shockmaster, and Duke the Dumpster as people I’d never thought I’d see on a Raw Deal card. Yet still no Disco Inferno... In all seriousness though, these look great! Thanks for the holiday cheer!

Oh now I'm super intrigued. I really liked the look of them based off their Superstar card, but did not of them as a promo Superstar. Hype-train, depart!

American Alpha looks like an easy but fun build.  Great work on the card design as well.

So it's not a multi unless it meets one of the three qualifiers (as a counter, after TitCT, after a Chain maneuver)?

You might want to remove the "multi" underneath the American Alpha logo before final release.

I’m curious why Shoulder Tackle has black colored text. Isn’t the standard font color for backlash deck cards white (except for when the background is yellow)? I noticed this with The Rated R Supertar’s mid match card too (has black text). I think Backlash had black text, but it became white text after that set on.

There might have been a reason at some point, or maybe that hybrid template of mine just didn't get updated.  Since I need to fix the 'multi' tag anyway, I can change it to white on this card.  Thanks!

Nah, black text is correct. Mid-Match have black text titles, pre-match have white. Mid-match sometimes have white titles if they go really long  and bleed into picture/frame.

Tim, he's referring to the card text, not the card title. With rare exceptions, usually on very early cards, non-Revo Backlash cards have white card text, unless the bottom half of the card is a maneuver (which basically only occurs on Quick BASHing and mono-maneuvers.)

Black text titles is correct, but the bottom text should be white.
