HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IWA!

This is our 30th year of delivering wrestling excitement straight to your mailbox, but you're the one receiving the gift! Next cycle, send in at least $12 worth of matches, and one of your wrestlers gets to challenge the 30 lowest ranked wrestlers in your league for free! That's 50% more free matches than our usual deal.

Be sure to check out the latest issue of the IWA Report for a special thank you message from IWA founder Johnny B.

 

BORN OF PURE ADRENALINE

"Attention, all fans! If you like hardcore wrestling, then this is for you: the brand new Combat Zone League. There is no wrestler limit, and there are various types of matches, PPVs, and a brand new report coming out! You may use any real life hardcore wrestler, including those from indy promotions, as long as they are not deceased -- that's the only rule, to give respect to the dead. There is no limit to how your wrestler will grow. We will be having contests and specials every cycle! Also, we were granted free transfers from any league, as long as you purchase matches with your transfer; this does not include battle royal entries. So if you wanna be hardcore, let's see what you have to offer. We are working to make this the best hardcore league ever! With your trash talk and new storylines, this will be the best league ever! Come and join!"

 

TALK ABOUT BIG SHOES TO FILL...

"After 300 cycles of excellence, the ECL is in need of an infusion of new mangers. Come to a league where fresh feuds/running quality angles/trash talk will not only be wanted, but rewarded. First off, there will be free transfers for all active wrestlers. Secondly, I will be conducting an 8-man tournament to claim the vacated ECL Hardcore Championship. And finally, you won't want to miss a 16-man, $1 million dollar Money in the Bank tournament, where the winner will receive $1 million in imaginary earnings and have a shot at the Universal title anytime, anywhere, for up to 10 cycles! There will be several other prizes, tournaments, and PPV matches -- opportunities for your wrestlers to shine, become champion, and be part of a new era here in the Evil Clown League... I plan on maintaining this league's reputation as one of the most elite companies here in the IWA! If anyone has any questions, or constructive input, for that matter, please contact me at michael_giuliano9601 followed by the @ symbol and then yahoo.com."

NBL RETALIATION 2 PPV

"Good day to you all. The greatest commissioner to ever grace the IWA here, and once again, I raise the bar of what a league is supposed to be. This cycle, we are having our second annual Retaliation PPV, and it is set to be truly historic! I continue to tell everyone that my league is unmatched in quality and presentation, yet I still have a sea of doubters throughout the IWA. Well, I pity those who turn their cheek and look the other way. It only reaffirms that there are but a few real men and women out there ready to be part of a league as groundbreaking as the NBL. Carry on with your so-so leagues and underperforming commissioners; I will continue to separate my league from the rest and remind the naysayers that they are in our rear view mirror. Don't believe me? Well, here is my latest and greatest report to prove to you all that the New Blood League is truly The Gold Standard of the IWA!"

A CHAMBER MADE FOR TORTURE

"To those who think they are ready for hardcore-style wrestling... those who think they are tough enough, join the Torture Chamber League, where you can become Street Fight Champion, Steel Cage Champion, and more! We are a Bronze Federation league, and are also in the Asiatic conference. We take female wrestlers, foreign wrestlers, even rookies. Rookies in the NWL who think they're ready for the big league are welcome. I am your commissioner, Dangerous Danny Davis. Transfers are free when accompanied by matches. There is no limit to the number of wrestlers you can bring to the TCL, so go ahead: put one in the chamber!"

 

THE ACTUAL BEST LEAGUE IN THE IWA IS ABOUT TO GET HARDCORE!

"Whenever the Lone Wolf League does something new, they do it knowing anything but the best will not do. So when we commissioned our newly-minted Imperial Hardcore wrestling championship, we did it with the intention of being the true house of hardcore in the Imaginary Wrestling Association. That's what we will be as of now! If you want to go to a league and get downright demented and twisted in sanctioned bouts that will give you nightmares, try the LWL, and compete for the Imperial Hardcore title today! Last will and testament optional!!!"

DON'T MISS THIS SUPER CONTEST!

"I want the winner of the Mr. SHL contest to be the first SHL winner to become an instant millionaire! As commish, I am already offering $50,000 in imaginary money, and each wrestler who enters will have to pony up $50,000. Therefore, if there are 19 entries, that wrestler will earn $1,000,015. What does the 15 stand for? That is what makes it special: everyone in the IWA will know you won this prestigious contest, because 15 represents the year. The more entries, the bigger the pot, so there is no limit to what you can win. To top it off, I'm trying to convince the IWA to have the first SHL giveaway, where if you win the Mr. SHL contest, you will receive a free superhero/villain t-shirt! Please send in your wrestler's name by SHL bulletin #303 to both Kim and me, so she can deduct the money from your wrestler and add it to the pot. I am doing a PDF version of the Mr. SHL event that will be posted on the IWA website. Watch for it!"

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. :)
