Just wanna confirm since V9A consist of all 14 new superstars, what will V9B be consisting of? And will there be a further split for V9C?

Like before, V9B will be the back-end of the set, the support cards that aren't ready.  No V9C.  No further information available at this time, this is just about V9A: the new Superstars in the set.

Strange question though, since you don't play Virtual.

I have a headache just looking at the Tyler Breeze text. I am not a fan of upside down card decks. Thats a personal preference and I know that I am a minority on it. Its just annoying playing against those decks. Still looking forward to Joe and Finn.

Note that Tyler isn't like, say, The Second Coming. He has cards under the Selfie Stick, and face-down ones give him benefits and face-up ones he can play as if from hand (and if needed, he can flip those face-down for a protection against targeted discard or ring removal). He's not flipping cards in his ring face-down or face up.

^ What he said.

We try to make stuff sometimes that has more moving parts (see also: Stardust), but is still (in theory) fun to play and not overly difficult to handle.  Often it takes extra words to protect from being broken with this, or useless with that, etc, so it looks like a lot.

Theoretically, there's some 'smash face' straightforward stuff, and one or more clever guys in the mix, then that one who looks complex but has a unique mechanic.  Something for everyone.  :)

I'm still Super bummed that my original idea for Sin Cara didn't work out.

You know what I'm not bummed about, though? Virtual 9. This set really came together.

Are you HYPE for the new Superstars?  Cuz you shouldn't GET hype.. you should STAY hype!  :D



(Expect the Hype Train to roll on, next destination tomorrow is.. Dallas! heh)

EDIT:  Thanks to Dilbert for spotting the lack of location in the Backstage card, to choose 3 options you need those HYPE cards in your Ring.  I'll fix that before we release the set.

I just never realized how goofy Mojo looks until I saw those cards. GirdIron tactics is just a beast of a card. I will probably not play him, but I like what was done here. Again, I am not bashing the Tyler or even Second Coming. Its cool to have variety.

We salvaged one from the wreckage of the Hype Bros with two logos on it, yes.  :)

Ok why on MoJo is it his FACE Side and not his HEEL Side as he don't Stay Hyped anymore unless it's to Kick your Butt like he is now since he Killed The Bros of Hype. So are you gonna make him a HEEL Type card like you done w/ Randy by having the Managed by Sherri:HEEL and Miss Liz:FACE as that would be cool. As hopefully you also release a Support Card for Tyler called the FASHION FILES where also The FASHION Police/BreeZango and Fandango can pack it that would be awesome. But awesome Cards so far for V9

Just an FYI, on GET Hyped... I think grammatically it should be "put 1 non-reversal card" not cards.

Heh, I made a note of that last night, the downside to change effects around - sometimes you miss minor things like pluralization.  Thanks.

Want more spoilers?  You just have to BO-lieve!

And a shoutout to The Softcore Legend whose fantasy Bo Dallas definitely served as some inspiration: http://teamcanadaonline.net///index.php/topic,14433.msg170315.html

It is?  Happy Birthday!

Well, I can't give YOU any spoilers, you've already seen all this stuff, but let's give away some to the TCO'ers, heh:



Some of the random card pictures I liked - hey, is that Nia Jax as a Rosebud?  :D

For those who missed it, Bo Dallas's heel NXT championship run was hilarious.  He was convinced the fans loved him - "Boring"?  Yes, Bo is in the Ring!  "No More Bo"?  That's right, they want to Know More Bo!  Great stuff.



(And I had to get that sign in the pic, heh)

Bo is looking like a ton of fun. He and The Ascension have me thinking up a fantasy card for those NXT who got called up and were completely squandered.

I am going to be digging in the crates for some classic cards. I love it. I also love the fond memories of mr. Dallas in NXT. How about that time he tried to Stage a sit in similar to the one Daniel Bryan had done on Smackdown the previous week? Only no fan showed up to do the protest with him and you freaked out and started yelling at everyone.

Nice! Really like the Tyler set, and Bo Dallas seems really interesting.
Just realized that the 2, 8, 0 effect is a reference to his 280 days reign as an NXT champion. All you have to do is ... BOLieve!

Exactly!  And while Bo had become quite the heel champion, his #1 challenger chasing the title finally got his big chance in the first network special for the brand, NXT Arrival.



In the first-ever Ladder Match in NXT, Bo Dallas was defeated by this man:
