Manager Matt Riley took a break from preparing the latest issue of the IWA Ringside Magazine to inform us that his wrestler was mistakenly entered into Imagimania 33. The rightful entrant was Mordecai (LWL), which meant different results for both the Black Widow and Diamondback Rattlesnake titles. Please see the corrected contest results PDF or the updated IWA Report for the changes.
We're having Matt's wrestler keep the prize money as a reward for his honesty, and all other affected wrestlers will also be keeping the larger prize amounts they received. The subtitle of Imagimania 33 was "we <3 you guys," and this is just one more example of why we do; it's far from the first time one of our players has contacted us about an error that benefited them. You never fail to display honor, integrity, and class, and you understand the importance of earning every single victory. Thank you for being awesome.
"REPORT" YOUR STABLE INITIALS
If you manage wrestlers in one or more leagues which do not allow stable initials (currently the CWL, GWL, IWL, LNL, LWL, and WWL), but want those wrestlers to represent your group in the IWA Report, please let us know! Simply tell us your name and the initials of your stable, and we'll keep your request on file for future Report appearances. Be sure to notify us if you change your group affiliation.
For wrestlers in leagues which DO allow stable initials, the initials printed in the bulletins will be used for Report purposes, so make sure to request the correct ones by your league's deadline! Remember that changing your wrestler's stable initials is and has always been free -- because who doesn't love a good swerve?

WE'LL DO RIGHT BAYOU
"Hey, all Louisiana Swamp League managers, both old and prospective, I'm Leo Kruger, and I'm the brand new commissioner of this league. I would like to personally invite you all to join both our Facebook page under the name Louisiana Swamp League, as well as our league.
"We have a deal going on right now -- free transfers for the next two cycles -- and when you use the $12 match deal, you get a free battle royal entry!
"We are setting up three tournaments: one for our Diamond Drop World Heavyweight Championship, one for our World Divas Championship, and one for our Lucha World Heavyweight Championship (specifically for our Lucha Libre wrestlers). The winner of each title will receive $10,000 in imaginary money, and losers get $5,000, so you're guaranteed to get something.
"We also have our first PPV coming up, named Cage of Death, where the main event will be two wrestlers locked in a cage with electrified walls and all sorts of weapons hanging from the ceiling. The winner will be the one who incapacitates the other wrestler to the point where he can no longer go on or answer the 10-count.
"We have a great GM/Co-Commissioner named Lucky Stars, and the prospect of making a monthly show with matches. We have some of the best feuds and trash talk around, and we are also the eighth league in an Interfed association of Steel leagues.
"Feel free to contact me or my GM with any questions, concerns, or just to join our page and league with wrestler ideas and storylines. Come and join in our fun... YOU WON'T REGRET IT!"

THE ROAD TO WICKED CITY CHAOS!
"'The Gold Standard' Melvin Mayhem strikes again, as the WWL has already cemented itself as one of the premiere leagues in the IWA. In two short cycles, we have already reached the 50-card mark, and with that, Mayhem has managed to secure an incredible $5,000,000 in iCash and 250 free matches for the league. With all this money and all those free matches at his disposal, the future is certainly bright for this new and dynamic league.
"Wicked Warz is fast becoming one of the gems of the IWA, and rightly so. Not only is this the FIRST league to have customized front and back bulletin covers, which set the IWA world ablaze, but it also is home to arguably the best commissioner report in the game today. Our PPV is only three short cycles away, and things are heating up fast as feuds are already beginning to take shape and take on a life of their own. We also have the huge Calamity Contract Invitational Round Robin Tournament front and center, where the winning manager will receive $1,000,000 in iCash, 25 free matches, and the Calamity Contract Briefcase, which will allow them to challenge for any Mayhem title at any time, any place, and any location.
"Commissioner Mayhem has taken this league to a whole other level, and now is the time to be a part of history! This league is INVITE-ONLY, so you must contact the commissioner directly (newbloodmayhem followed by the @ symbol and then gmail.com) in order to be considered for entry into the league. Once approved, if a manager takes the $12 match deal in their debut cycle, then all transfer, wrestler creation, and name change fees will be waived for up to the eight-wrestler maximum. You also receive two free battle royal entries with every match deal taken, as well, as long as trash talk is submitted. Take three consecutive match deals and the fourth cycle becomes a 3-matches-for-$1 cycle, along with the two free B.R. entries!
"Yes, folks, the Wicked Warz League is here to stay. Want to know more about the league? Just tune in to Interfed Radio for our Exclusive WWL Review show, where Mayhem dives into all things wicked and gives an in-depth review of every cycle's activity. Make sure to check out our groundbreaking bulletin and report, and we'll see you in the War Room if you think you can hang with our talent. Stay WICKED!"

Match results are also available in HTML format from that same page, for those who want a searchable option.
If you want us to continue providing results this way, contact Kimberly and tell her you'd like to "go green." We'll stop sending you printed bulletins, which will help keep our prices low, and you'll get the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing you just helped save the planet. Everyone wins!

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. :)
