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!"

(Don't forget to check if your company makes matching gifts to charities.)

THE NEW DXL COMMISSIONER SPEAKS:

"Come one, come all, to the greatest league in IWA history. The DXL in the Jade Federation features the following: matches are 3 for $1 every cycle (managers must spend a minimum of $12 on matches each cycle), the manager of the league champion receives $1 credit for every 3 cards (50 cards minimum) and $1 credit for every 4 battle royal entrants every cycle, and managers are limited to a maximum of 6 wrestlers.

"In addition, the Deluxe Wrestling League will be home to an exclusive that's never been done in the history of the IWA, and it will make it the most balanced and competitive league ever: the DXL will be a STABLE CAP league. If you're tired of seeing so many members of one stable or another in your current league, you should join the DXL, as that won't happen here. Starting in two cycles, all stables will be under a strict 24-wrestler per stable limit!

"You may sign up this cycle and join the DXL for FREE (with $12 minimum spent on matches). Email the DXL Commissioner with any questions at TheDXLCommish followed by the @ symbol and then gmail.com. Join the legendary DXL today!"

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. :)
