All the Bronze Age leagues had a pay-per-view in the January tour, so please check the bulletins for those results! As for this tour's magazine, we have our league highlights and, as always, the highest strategies from last cycle. Want to check out the latest Bronze Age tubecasts? The links are inside! Thank you to all the awesome managers who continue to make the LNL, the RWL, and the UNL some of the best places to play the game we all love!"

IWA RINGSIDE MAGAZINE (updated 2/10)

"Hey! Take a break from hitting the refresh button while you wait for Gold to post and check out the 134th edition of the IWA Ringside Magazine. 2020 is underway, and this issue has more details of the four big IWAR events happening this spring: the Four Corners Invitational 3, the Von Erich Classic 3, the 7th Johnny B Cup, and the 24th Marano Memorial Tag-team Tournament. Don't miss out, because there will be a lot of fun to compete in. This issue also covers some of the big shows including the BRL's first Royal Rumble (with the winner getting a shot at the IWAR Revolution Champion), the IWL's This Tuesday in Texas (where Luthor Alexander faces the Arabian Dream Ali Atari to fill the vacant IWL Heavyweight Championship), and the NWL's Clash of the Champions (which features multiple title changes)!

"The IWAR World title defenses saw Joe Boring fend off R.A. Rude to retain the belt, and Jane Red & Matthew Van Slaughter capture the IWAR World Tag-team titles from the Regulators (IWL). The IWAR World Championship defenses enter their final rounds this cycle:"

  • IWAR World: Joe Boring (CWL) vs. The Arabian Dream Ali Atari (IWL)
  • IWAR World Tag: Jane the Vixen Red & Matthew Van Slaughter (BRL) vs. Johnny Morello & Vincent Torrio (CWL)
  • IWAR World Six-man: Gran Sabrosa, Prince Ton, & Shocker Jimmy Electric (IWL) vs. the von Snapps (CWL)
  • IWAR Revolution: Kennedy Cage (IWL)'s next defense is against the winner of the BRL's Royal Rumble at Wrestlerama 8.
  • The IWAR Women's World Champion will be determined at Wrestlerama 8 in April.

"The IWAR Tubecast is back and action-packed, and we also have the IWAR Gold Strategy Workshop through Facebook Live that you can watch as it happens; we now have these videos up on YouTube, as well. While we had a run of getting the drops right with the 27s and 28s, it came to an end, but we got it half right with the 31 half of the drop. I hope these are helping you to be a better competitor.

"Thanks to everyone who helps make the IWAR so much fun. If you haven't joined up yet, stop and check out the IWAR leagues (BBL, BRL, CWL, IWL, and NWL) to see what you are missing."
-- IWAR Commissioner Matt Riley

GO GREEN

The current bulletins from all our leagues are now available on our League Champions page. These PDF files are updated the same day the federation results are posted and include everything the snail mailed versions have, with the added bonus that some feature trash talk pages in full color.

Match results are also available in HTML format from that same page.

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!

 

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.

Also, 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. :)
