WANT TO WIN A REAL CHAMPIONSHIP BELT?

"Hi, I'm William Maxwell, commissioner of the Global Championship League, also known as the GCL. The GCL is a new Elite league in the Jade Federation which utilizes a 6-wrestler limit. All 6 wrestlers must have original names, and while female wrestlers aren't allowed, stable initials ARE! There will also be no transfers.

"The GCL will award a REAL GCL Global Heavyweight Championship belt to the 2020 Wrestler of the Year. This belt features 2mm brass plates on a real leather strap -- a $150 value! This belt will be the most sought-after belt in all of IWA history. Pictures will be available soon.

"The fun doesn't stop there! The GCL Championship Committee has put together the perfect structure for the GCL Commissioner Championships! No one will be overlooked, and there will never be any favoritism, as the contenders will be essentially chosen by the managers of the league! Please head over to the GCL Facebook page, or see the following press release for more detailed information!" (This link will open in a new browser window.

IWA RINGSIDE MAGAZINE (updated 12/9)

"It's the holiday season, and we are all hoping we don't get coal in our stockings (especially if we had a turkey of a cycle a few weeks ago!), so as we wait for Gold to drop, kill some time with the IWA Ringside Magazine. In this issue, we reveal the finals of the Bound for Glory Series, Tag-team Derby, and Triple D Cup six-man tournaments, and the finals will anchor the first-ever IWAR-wide PPV, ImagiClash... Then there are the IWAR Network league pages and the IWAR Rankings, which will determine who will walk away with the Wrestler of the Year honors, so take a look at some of those super-tight points races (yikes)... The IWAR Championships wrapped up, and we have some changes! Hot $tuff Adam Ca$h (BRL) couldn't beat IWAR World Champion Joe Boring (CWL), who will now face R.A. Rude (BRL). The Regulators, James Carnage and Jesse Tombstone (IWL), captured the IWAR World Tag-team Championships from Graham Underwood & Kennedy Cage (IWL), and now face off against Jane the Vixen Red & Matthew Van Slaughter (BRL). Rab Fash, Hester, and Fester (CWL) lost by forfeit to IWAR World Six-man Champions Gran Sabrosa, Prince Ton, and Jimmy Electric (IWL), who will next defend against the winners of the Triple D Cup six-man tourney. The IWAR Revolution Champion, R.A. Rude (BRL), will defend against the winner of the Bound for Glory Series, and we will soon reveal some changes coming to the way we figure out who gets the title shots... The IWAR Tubecast has returned, so be sure to take a listen to the mayhem. We will be holding our eighth IWAR Gold Strategy Workshop through Facebook Live on December 6th, so be sure to check it out, as we need all the help we can get when it comes to our strats... Thanks to everyone who helps make the IWAR so much fun, and after you give this issue a read, you can make a wager on how long it will take for some other league to bump the IWAR post down the page with some random post from a commish looking to get more eyes on their league via our traffic, or... you can go back to refreshing."

The tournament will tentatively start in the January 2020 cycle, which will give everyone a chance to get their team entered. This contest is open to the entire IWA. There will be free transfers for those who wish to join the ASL; all others must be responsible for their team being active each cycle the tourney is going on, so the IWA can send me their strategy totals. Get in on the six-man action!"

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, 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!

 

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. :)
