More will follow in short order, but here's the beginning of the Afterburn era, from Vince McMahon in the Lethal Library to those who were Unforgiven...

Wouldn't that card already be blank, if Managed by Eric Bischoff was played?

RMS bro.

Didn't see that.  In that case, mean card.

Eh, we'll see.  There's one or two that I might go back and re-do, maybe.  But most of the Afterburn-era guys are all set on the logos, at least for now. 

Meanwhile, here's the rest of the Armageddon superstars...  :)

Pardon the Impertenence, and I wouldn't really expect you to change it now, but shouldn't the Orton card be "The Legend Killing Kick"?

The cards look fantastic by the way.

Is it asking too much to maybe think about being able to pack doomsday device and spiked shoulder pads for Heidenrich since his card is about Animal and he was a member of LOD?  Just a suggestion, not to start any arguement or anything or complain since Heidenrich's next card was gonna be his own Doomsday Device?

Funny, the same thought had crossed my mind when I reworked the title/picture issue... we'll look over the Superstar and his cards to see if that would be 'too good', etc.  Game balance, after all, comes first.  :)

I tossed a bunch of posts about the Leader of the Peepulation cards because the wording was altered for clarification, as was the Managed by Super Stacy (nice catch, Mike!) text.  The new versions are above... along with the Bobby Heenan and JYD cards.  :)

...aaaaand finally here's the support for the Royal Rumble superstars.  Tomorrow will begin Wave 12, covering No Way Out, Great American Bash, and everybody's favorite promo card from GenCon 2006, heh.  That will run through the weekend, Waves 13 & 14 will be skipped (support for Revolution superstars) until the templates are ready, so Wave 15 will probably start Monday - the first of the New Superstars.  :)

JYD's is just sick.

I can understand that reaction.  Here's the problem:  When JYD is introduced, he is a crap superstar.  Being able to throw bigger Grapples, which don't really have any protection, isn't that great.  He's limited on what he can pack (forced to play Face for Clutch reversals since he can't pack Strangle Hold) for maneuvers, and even with Legend support, his lower SV means Immortal, Piper, Jake, and usually Heenan can all play Bitter Rivals to beat him to Jimmy.  He really isn't doing anything that other superstars don't do better.

No Way Out, he gets a TMF.  Yeah, cute.  He still doesn't have help getting off the ground.  So they give him the Chain in GAB.  At this point, JYD decks become a gamble.  Do you get the Chain to stick or not?  If you do, Chain grapples FTW.  If you don't, you lose.  That's pretty much what most JYD decks do (aside from the random sponge builds with Major Announcement, which are still limited).

The concept was to make JYD playable without being 'all or nothing'... and give him the ability to get in the game, even using the Chain, without making him so reliant on having the Chain stick to have a chance in the matchup.  I think we've found that happy medium.. I think... :)  But its a very thin edge working with his card support between making him unplayable and overpowered.

(If I had the time, I'd love to write up a designers' diary of things like this to explain why a superstar got this card vs. that one, why this guy doesn't get this effect, etc.. ah, time, my mortal enemy, heh)

And yes, lil' buddy, the Heat Seekers picture(s) just kind of fell in place.  Didn't really have a plan for the card image, but looking through their respective galleries, I was hoping to find a use for that Regal pic, and with the idea of spitting it all fell into place.  :)

Hey... one question about JYD's backstage card.

Does this "replace" the current wording on "JYD's Chain", or just add this text to it?

It 'reads' as directed, so it replaces the text until that turn has ended.  Then it goes back to making them discard and overturn on future turns.

wow...

His new card kinda sucks then. I'd rather make them discard their hand or backlash deck...

Anyhoo, thanks! I was just checking...

Well, you have a couple options.  Don't use the new card .... or pack it but don't reveal it, and take your chances that you won't hit Volley This, VT, VT, Sidewalk Slam, My Way, Stop Trying To Hit Me and Hit Me, and something nasty like Stevie T.  ;)

It's good to have options, heh.
