PLEASE HELP A FELLOW MANAGER IN NEED

On August 14th, 2014, the Reedy family excitedly welcomed into the world a little girl named Sadie Mae Reedy. However, she was born with only one operating lung, a large hole in her heart, and the left hemisphere of her brain not fully formed. On August 17th, 2014, she passed away from her complications.

As any parent would tell you, no one plans for the death of a child. The IWA is asking all members if they can help the Reedys with the funeral costs. Please send any donations to the IWA, and they will be forwarded to Randall Reedy and his family. Thank you.

 

ABSOLUTELY EPIC

"As if bringing the NBL to the promised land wasn't enough, I go and do it again. That's right, my friends, Melvin Mayhem here, and I have a HUGE announcement to make. After long negotiations and meetings regarding the state of the APL, I have officially signed on as the new commissioner of this once great league. As I have shown and proved over in the NBL just how powerful my tides of change can be, I now have the challenge of doing the same with the ABSOLUTE PAIN LEAGUE. Those boys had better be ready, because nothing will ever be the same around there again. Change has arrived, and when the smoke clears, there will be another juggernaut entering the fold here in the IWA. Mark my words, this will be an EPIC transformation! If you want a teaser as to what my report will be all about, look no further than the image to the right. This league will not be for the faint of heart, so make sure your guts are in check before you enter our world! Transfers are free if you stay active, so if you want in on something truly special, then join today and fasten your seat belts!"

 

OVER 2 MILLION REASONS TO JOIN!

"I, Commissioner 'The Billionaire' Dr. DJ Phipps, am allowing free transfers to the ABL until November, as we get ready to prepare for our first annual ABL tournament! It will start in December and run until February. I, as the commissioner, will pay for each and every tournament match! The winner in the singles portion will receive $500,000, the runner-up $250,000, third place $100,000, and fourth place $75,000. The tag-team winners will split $500,000, the runners-up $250,000, third place $150,000, fourth place $125,000, and fifth place $100,000. If you have any questions, please contact me at phippsmanagementservice followed by the @ symbol and then yahoo.com."

E-MAIL REMINDERS

Keep a copy of every e-mail you send us, and make sure iwa or IWA appears in the subject line to avoid any delays. If you do not receive a reply within 48 hours (not counting Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays), re-send your message. Kimberly replies to all legitimate e-mail.

Do not use attachments since your message will automatically be erased BEFORE it is opened or even previewed. This is to prevent the spread of computer viruses.

Finally, make sure to e-mail any matches, strategy changes, etc. at least 24 (and preferably more than 48) hours before your league will be processed.

 

RANKINGS AND ACTIVITY CHANGES

Your wrestler's number of stars, current point flow, and previous strategy total are now used as additional tie-breakers in our league rankings system. The new progression is as follows: activity status (active or inactive -- see next paragraph), having at least one win, number of wins over losses, total number of wins, number of stars, amount of imaginary money, number of ties, point flow, and strategy total from the previous cycle.

Also, each wrestler must initiate a one-on-one match to be considered active. Tag-team matches, six-man matches, and battle royal entries do not count toward activity. Inactive wrestlers cannot compete for major titles, so if you'd like to see your grappler's name in the IWA Report, don't forget to have him sign at least one singles match!

 

NEW ROOKIE LEAGUE POLICY

From now on, managers may not create new wrestlers or transfer existing wrestlers into rookie leagues without permission from both the league commissioner and IWA Management. This protection does not expire after a certain number of cycles: it ends when it is agreed that managers in the league are ready to compete against more experienced players.

We hope this change will provide those who are new to the game with a chance to hone their skills on a more even playing field.

The Special Leagues page contains a list of our rookie leagues.

 

AN EXCEPTION TO OUR STABLE INITIALS POLICY

Our policy against changing stable initials after a league has been processed, but before The IWA Report has been published, failed to address the special nature of the World Wrestling League. Since this league does not allow stable initials, managers are prevented from gaining recognition for their group on an IWA-wide basis should they win a major title.

Attaching stable initials in The Report alone should have zero impact on in-league angles and storylines, since the WWL doesn't even use them (and by "them" we mean stable initials; the WWL certainly uses angles and storylines!). Because we are also able to afford our snail mail players the same option, we see no reason to prohibit managers from having Report-only initials in this league.

Several members of the WWW stable pointed out this shortcoming in our policy, although it just as easily could have been any other stable had its wrestlers won major titles from that league. We're glad this special circumstance occurred at the beginning of the year since it allows all groups to start on equal footing. (Remember that the January issue of The IWA Report actually lists the major champions from the final cycle of the previous year.)

 

NEW POLICY FOR CHANGING NAMES AND/OR STABLE INITIALS

Effective immediately, wrestlers may only change their names and/or stable initials at the time their league is processed. As usual, Kimberly has been too nice in honoring requests, and we feel the situation is getting out of hand. Allowing these changes to occur between bulletin mailings can create confusion, and leave managers who choose to play via snail mail feeling "out of the loop" or like less-valued members of our wrestling family.

We want to use the Internet to provide conveniences for all who play our game, but that must be balanced with keeping the emphasis on the league bulletins -- where the action is! When wrestlers are permitted to change these attributes between bulletin mailings, it makes on-line activity just as important as league activity; it's as if time doesn't "pause" between bulletins #34 and #35 like it should, but instead continues on in some arena that exists only on the Internet. That's obviously not fair to our snail mail players.

So from now on, wrestler information must remain a reflection of what is printed in the league bulletins. This should ensure that everyone -- whether on-line or not -- will be on the same page. You can decide for yourself if that was intended to be a pun. :)
