Beginning in 2008, we will be implementing a limit of 20 wrestlers per federation for each manager. We feel that there should be some kind of limit in place, to prevent someone from going "hog wild" at some point in the future and hurting anyone else's enjoyment of the game. We hope you agree that 20 is a very generous amount. Any more than this, and a manager would likely find it very difficult to write Trash Talk for all his wrestlers on a regular basis.

Please remember that we want you to be able to play our game any way you wish. Some managers choose to concentrate on winning major titles, while others enjoy focusing on league-based activities -- feuding with other wrestlers, having a series of matches against a certain opponent, fighting over regional titles, participating in commissioner's events, etc. Some prefer to play as part of a stable, competing against other groups, and some managers find entertainment by developing their characters, writing creative Trash Talk, and reading comments from the talented members of our wrestling family. Some even like to create wrestlers which perform poorly on purpose, and use them as comic relief! (If you've been concentrating on only one of these types of game play, we encourage you to try another, or perhaps a combination. You may like it!)

This federation cap shouldn't prevent anyone from enjoying the many styles of play our game has to offer. Hopefully it will help ensure that the IWA remains fun and competitive for years to come. Thank you for your cooperation!



"Mastermind" Mike Tisdale kept this title in New York with the help of ACE: General Lee (KTL)! He wins his choice of 100 free matches or a real wrestling belt and 50 free matches. The General's strategy was worth 501 points!



Holding onto this belt was Arkansas' own Johnathan Bridgeman! This time he used EDGE: Stock Broker (KTL) to gain the engraved plaque or 25 free matches. Fittingly, Stock Broker had to escape the clutches of COT: The Tax Collector (CFL), whose strategy was also worth 500 points!



RWS: Titan (HWL) earned an engraved plaque or 25 free matches for his manager, Michael Drake of New York, by defeating all other league battle royal winners! His 500-pointer led to an unbeatable 272 total when we added the values of hold positions 1, 3, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13, and 15 in each of their strategies. Hold positions 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 12, and 14 were used to find the last man standing in each regular league battle royal.



Chad Burton of Indiana was awarded 10 free matches when his wrestler, COT: The Landlord (CFL) won this $25,000 purse! He had a 500 total. (As if the battle for this title weren't already difficult enough, now we've added the Main Event League as our newest Asiatic league!)



After edging out LPPF: Deathmatch Celebrity Charles Manson (PKL), King of the Ring RWS: Titan (HWL) picked up these 10 free matches for Michael Drake of New York! Both men had 500 points.



RWS: Titan (HWL) continued his hot streak, winning the Iron Federation title and 25 free matches for Michael Drake of New York! He edged ACE: "Quota Crusher" Ricky Roma (DZL), ACE: "Too Good" Tyler Sanders (BTL), and EDGE/LAD: Satanic Stanley Scott (MIL), who each had a 500. In the Steel Federation, Tony Robinson of Florida led ACE: Mike Ceno (PML) to a reluctant victory over stablemates "Twisted" Troy Battle (KKL) and Rudolph Giuliani (CCL). ACE: The Pacifist (MPL) took the Gold Federation honors for Jason Sandberg of New York with a 499-pointer. The Diamond Federation went to LPPF: G Money (LOL), who was managed to 500 points by Gregg Boyle of Maryland. Eventual World Champion General Lee secured a victory in the Bronze Federation before moving on to our highest honor. Claiming the Jade Federation's free matches was Keith A. Maple of Ohio, who managed LPPF: Deathmatch Celebrity Charles Manson (PKL) to a 500 total!



EDGE: The Stormin' Mormon Norman Foreman (QPL) stormed his way through the Atlantic region, and didn't stop until he reached the National prize of an engraved plaque or 25 free matches!

Winning the Ladies' World Championship with a 500-pointer was LPPF: Gothic Angel #2 (LLL), managed by Keith A. Maple of Ohio! He wins an engraved plaque or 15 free matches. UZI: Godzooky (GDL) made sure that the Queen of the Ring crown remained in the possession of New Yorker Jason Battaglia! COT: Alexis Sapphire (FFL) used her 499-point strategy to conquer the Ladies' U.S. title, and COT: Lyndsey the Ditsy Cheerleader (FFL) used hers to claim the Ladies' National prize! Both are managed by Chad Burton of Indiana. W.P. Mills of Wisconsin coached his team of CB: "Perfect Ten" Jen Carfagno and Christi "Got It All" Paul (FFL) to the Ladies' tag straps.
