BACKGROUND: What are PPVs and what’s the significance of Fight the LAW?
Pay-Per-View events are a stage for HYPE! These events are a place where you can execute any cool, sexy or fun idea your heart may desire. From the climax to a feud, to the birth of a faction, PPV matches bridge the wider LAW universe with the high points in users' storytelling.
There are two yearly PPVS: The Summer PPV We are LAW and the Winter PPV Fight the LAW. Between them, LAW also organizes its Supercard Events in concert with some blessed users who take precious time to launch their own events such as Vcom's Hades, Freestylepoet's Outmatched in Oil, Noob's annual LWS Tournament, and Devilish53's Wildcard Tag Event
Where We are LAW brings us the gigantic proportions of Wrestlemania or Wrestle Kingdom, FIGHT THE LAW brings in a whole new aspect: Travel. Fight the LAW events take place far from LAW's usual Japanese shores. Wrestlers travel around the world, to locales exotic to some and home to others. Local scenery lends spice both to matches and social threads.
Fight the LAW 3 features two competing events: two weeks, two cards, and two themes. Wrestlers from each week compete to make their card the one to shine brightest. For each week, there will be a host to introduce the card, to hype YOUR matches, and to create a thematic bridge between the shows. Please keep in mind this competition is purely kayfabe fun; there will be no official winner.
So, where is week one?! Why: Europe! In the land-locked country of Austria, near the city of Innsbruck, we find ourselves in the mountains at Naturpark Karwendal. Ski slopes are plenty, and power-bombs echo through the Inn valley. Welcome to Ski resort heaven, where your character will wrestle in a freezing wind chill, near igloos and elegant ice constructs. The “Gorilla Position” and stage are a four-tower ice castle, where wrestlers emerge from within, over a snowy drawbridge and down a snowy ramp. Steel barricades wrap around ring-side. Packed bleachers surround the ring on three sides, while many more stand, perhaps with hot cocoa in their mittens. This snow-covered event exemplifies the scrappy, low-budget production of an indie show set in a quaint festival in a spare wilderness.
Now where is WEEK TWO?! From Japan to Austria, it's in Austria we shall remain. As we leave the Winter Festival behind, we seek to warm cold-nipped hands somewhere more urban. We come to Salzburg, one of the great cities of Austria, where culture is rich, fortresses are plenty and the sweet Sound of Music fills the air. Amid all this splendor, LAW’s PPV event will enjoy an equally bright venue: The Red Bull Arena, an outdoors and uncovered arena in the heart of this timeless city. Come evening, wrestlers will throw down in front of thirty thousand attendees, who wait to pop and jeer to one of the most highly produced wrestling events in the world. Welcome to the Rome of the North!
Before submitting a request to join the card, discuss the thread with ALL participants. Event staff will verify the details of each thread with all users.
Once all participants have agreed on a match, ONE participant should sign up using this link: https://forms.gle/9e4quVp8xHgUX8iPA We will then use responses to this form to create the Fight the LAW card.
Please note that it is possible that not all match requests submitted will be accepted. Though subject to exceptions, these are the requirements for wrestlers participating in PPVs:
- Wrestlers have 3 completed matches at the time of the PPV, OR the user has completed five matches altogether across their combined roster.
- Users who have ongoing threads from PPVs or Supercards more than 1 year old may be asked to finish those commitments before being added to the card.
- Users are limited to 2 PPV threads, not including title defense threads.
This Fight the LAW brings a few changes and unique challenges that are addressed here.
- Any user with five completed matches can participate.
- ALSO! To those who request two matches on the card, please note that we are prioritizing having more users take part on the card. This means that if we have a choice between a user's first PPV thread and another user's second PPV thread, the first will be given priority. We may ask you about which submission you'd prefer over the other. Feel free to express your preferences to: Taskmaster12, Malkavia or Rymiscuius via Site PM or Discord.
