FROM THE DESK OF THE GRL COMMISSIONER

"I would like to take a moment to announce that I will be stepping down as GRL commissioner after this year. Bulletin #251 (we're currently on #245) will be the last in which my report will appear. With the current state of the game, and the lack of interest, I feel it is time to let it go. 2017 will most likely be the year I quit the game altogether, and I want to try to have as much fun as possible in my last few months, free of the responsibility of being a commissioner.

"I would like to thank everyone who has made being a commissioner as enjoyable as it could have been, and for helping make the GRL one of the best leagues in the game. Everything will continue to run as always until the year's end, and then I will probably go into 'character mode.'

"I am putting the word out there, and will hopefully find a replacement that will continue to make the GRL one of the best leagues. I do not want it to just die, like so many other leagues once the commissioner has quit.

"If you are interested in becoming the commissioner, or know of anybody that would, feel free to contact me at mrmaple69 followed by the @ symbol and then yahoo.com. I will have a say in who takes over, and will discuss it with Kim before a replacement is chosen. I want someone with the dedication and know-how to run a league, and do it well. I will announce the new commissioner as soon as possible, and they will be taking over beginning with bulletin #252."

 


 

YOU CAN HELP MAKE CANCER "BOW TO DEFEAT"

Johnny B hands the microphone to manager John Voss: "Hi, my IWA family! I have been in and out of the IWA for over 20 years. I've made good friends over these years, and continue enjoying the game today. This past year was extremely difficult, as I lost my father to cancer. I reached out to the IWA, and they're helping me spread the word about the annual charity ride held by my workplace.

"If you've lost someone to cancer, or know someone who has, then you understand why we want to fight this. Please visit my page at the Cycle for Survival website and help out. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated!"

ASL 500TH ANNIVERSARY EXTRAVAGANZA

All righty, then. The time has come for me to reveal what's going to be very special leading up to and including ASL #500. I've said it before, and it bears repeating: reaching 500 cycles is an awesome achievement. It hasn't been easy. The ASL has run the gamut from prosperous to meagerly active. We are slowly starting to grow. Some of the IWA's best stables are represented -- old stalwarts like EDGE, LB, and Wamphyrii Warriors (WW) have been joined by YETI, LPPF, the Stud Stable and, most recently, the Disciples of Doom (DOD). As you can see, the talent is here and, as always, you are welcome to join as well. But, down to business...

Our current cycle is 488, but our extravaganza is not going to be limited to 1 cycle. The party starts in 2 cycles with #490. Cycle 490 begins it all, and showcases these awesome rewards:

  • Everyone active in #489 gets a free battle royal entry.
  • All match deals are against the bottom 30 instead of the bottom 20 for free.
  • All managers submitting trash talk can take an extra 5 matches for free! (Attach a note when you send in your matches.)
  • The league champion in 490 will receive 10 free matches.
  • As usual, the battle royal winner will get -- you guessed it -- 5 free matches.
  • One trash talker will get 5 free matches, so impress Commissioner Hamilton.

Cycles 491 through 499 will slow down enough for everyone to catch their breath, but the extracurricular activity won't stop completely: the ASL will continue to pay out 5 free matches to each manager who submits trash talk, along with the usual battle royal and trash talk award winners.

But that's not all... beginning in cycle #495 and continuing through 499, all cycles will be 2-matches-for-$1. That's in addition to the prizes starting in #491.

Which brings us to the big dance in #500:

  • Once again, a free battle royal entry goes to all active wrestlers, but instead of a $50,000 battle royal, it will be worth $100,000 to the winner.
  • No match deals are planned. Why? Because all matches will be 5-for-$1! There's 1 small catch: you must spend a minimum of $10. A small price to pay, indeed!
  • The league champion will receive $10 IWA credit plus 15 free matches.
  • The TV champ will receive 5 free matches.
  • Trash talk? Yep. The 5 free matches is still in effect.
  • I have approached the IWA about donating a 500th anniversary trophy or belt, so hopefully, if we have enough activity, we will have that.
  • Who knows what else I might think of between now and then?

It's not too late. Join the ASL now!

Special note: all the free matches awarded are to be played in the ASL. Sorry for the inconvenience.

EMAIL REMINDERS

Keep a copy of every email you send us. If you do not receive a reply within 48 hours (not counting Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays), resend your message. Kimberly replies to all legitimate email.

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 email 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 online 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 online or not -- will be on the same page. You can decide for yourself if that was intended to be a pun. :)
