My bad. Didn't realize its just for current talent. A Paul Heyman remake could be interesting. Remove the GM-ness. Make it a stable but include him not just the wrestlers. Or as a faction. Im sure Cesaro will be in a set so some support for him, Brock obviously, even something for Punk if needed and one for Heyman would round out nicely. You know, instead of a faction why not make it an Alliance?

I dunno, that sounds dangerous.

Oh, come on, I'm totally a Huffle- A Hufflep- OK, I can't say that with a straight face, I'm clearly a Ravenclaw through and through.  :laugh:

A Heyman remake as a non-GM could be interesting, BUT he'd still be an Enforcer guy. That seems like it's better for a support card than as a full-fledged remake.

I can say it with a straight face! Total Hufflepuff here.

I definitely would like to see a Heyman remake, perhaps with a Brock/Punk/Cesaro enforcer (The Beast, The Best, or The King?). Only question is, what would the remake be called? Aside from Paul E. Dangerously, I don't know of any other names that make sense. He called himself the advocate for Brock Lesnar, so The Devil's Advocate might work...

An Enforcer guy remade as an Enforcer guy doesn't strike me as compelling gameplay, though. It's just an excuse to funnel Heyman five more cards, and giving Heyman more good specifics scares me a bit after the things that I did with Heyman back in Armageddon.

However, The Voice of the Voice of the Voiceless could be a Backstage or Storyline that strips his GM-ship and gives him a new Ability or archetype. Well, that, and I'm not the sole arbiter of what gets made and what doesn't. It's certainly interesting to think about!

I do think It'll be interesting for Paul to be remade as a manager type superstar without any ECW/Foreign Object support or references but that's just me

After hitting the milestone of printing out over 25 virtual superstars and forming majority of decks in virtual format, I would really hope to see some cards that might encourage a heel/fan favorite and face/cheater deck. At least it wouldn't be so cliche anymore. Haha.

You could give him the dangerous alliance because if all three got together at the same time they'd be dangerous and it would reference his old stable

Unlikely.  Making something that JUST showed up on TV doesn't work out very well, heh.

That said, there's two ways we could go... one, set aside the Rhodes Brothers in favor of another Superstar, and come back to them later.  Or two, go ahead and make them, then have a Backstage card that has you NOT pack Cody cards but you get something else instead, etc. 

We'll see how StarDust plays out though...

Who else would be depressed if mcintyer didn't make it? Id honestly be more mad if 3mb was a superstar as much as i liked them. Slater would be part of four superstars and Drew - 1, and it's a tag team.

We already have a layout for Drew and Jinder, and Tim's great work made them both make me want to play 'em... :)

However, we already have 25 Superstars set for V7, but Drew/Jinder are slated for V8... which is becoming sort of an 'overflow' set, heh.

With the last few weeks/months of announcements....I'm going to throw in what will probably be a Virtual 8 (if such thing ends up existing)

Solomon Crowe
Adrian Neville
Sami Zayn
Kalisto
Kevin Steen
KENTA
Prince Devitt
Bo Dallas

...upon typing all of that out. Wow, NXT might have the best roster in wrestling.

The major thing with these incoming names is that they have to actually SHOW UP on, at least, NXT.  :)  We do need pics after all, we won't just pull a bunch of indy pics to have a Steen Kevinson set (or whatever silly name they use for him in WWE).  Same with Solomon Crowe - I keep waiting to hear that Sami Callihan's finally on NXT, but oh well.

However, I'll hint you that Virtual 7 had a name change, and is now "Virtual 7: The NXT Generation".  ;)

(While not a flood of just NXT guys, nearly everyone has some affiliation with NXT at some point...)

EDIT:  By the way, the general idea is to finish up Virtual 7 before the end of the year, then probably switch gears and start playtesting Virtual Revolution 5 (name not confirmed, but I'm leaning toward 'Battleground'), then back to Virtual 8: Over the Limit.  V8 will be a bit of everything, from guys like McIntyre and Sin Cara who didn't make the V7 cut, to a few older names not with the 'E any longer, to a few legends we've always wanted to get into the game.  And one major spoiler I'll drop, which some of you will love.. Jeff Hardy remake.  ;)

Then, as mentioned before, Virtual 9: Attitude.  There's still a long way to go, but that's the general plan, anyway.

This, please. One of the best gimmicks I've seen in a while, especially if you attach William Regal to them as their manager. That team would be amazing.

THIS EVEN MORE THAN THE OTHER. Very happy to see the sly emoticon from Creed there.

Wait....

did Bo Dallas just get hot-shotted into Raw Deal before the end of 2014? I want to Bo-lieve!

Or will I just be lucky enough to get a Kassius Ohno set with no support ever afterward (superstar and KO is fine. I don't even care. Damn....no more Hero)

Sadly I don't think Kassius did enough time to warrant an inclusion but who knows?
