Each move is in a pool and you get one drawn out etc. etc.

Now therefore, If I own all 154 moves, it should never happen my opponent does two moves in a row.

Explain this:

tajiri_._tarantula tries to make a Leg Drop.
But Con the Fruiterer counters for 3 damage.
He's strong and fast too!

Con the Fruiterer makes an extraordinary Gorilla Press for 9 damage.
tajiri_._tarantula lands lifeless on the mat!

tajiri_._tarantula makes a Head Vice for 1 damage.
I thought his brains were coming out his ears!
The submission fails.

Con the Fruiterer makes an incredible Bear Hug for 11 damage.
tajiri_._tarantula was thrown around like a dog's chew-toy!
tajiri_._tarantula slips out of the move.

Con the Fruiterer makes Thrust Kick for 6 damage.

Maybe the escape from the Bear Hug uses up one turn?

Yes I thought this up long ago!!

Around the time Scorp first retired and I fought him.

All I can think up is..maybe has somehting to do with specialized moves?

But it's prob all lies about the whole random move pool thing :S

Lets put this myth to bed, just because you have all the moves doesn't mean that you hit everytime on your move turn.

Everymove on VOW has a base hit %age (for example, Indian Death Lock would have a 50% base hit chance). Add on to this your stat specific to that move (so add the submission stat), and this is the overall hit %age for this move.

Then there is the counter chance (tech stat +20% for techs).

Move: Indian Death Lock
Type: Submission
Sub Stat: 50
Move base hit %age: 40
Total Hit Chance = 90%

So there is a 10% chance that this move wouldn't hit. This is also why people with 0 stats are able to hit moves, although some moves on the game rely purely on the stat of the wrestler :)

now lets kill that theory too when BA has over 60 sub...which would make his hit % over 100 effective so yet why doesnt he use that move every match then? theres a big formula but its best not to probe into it and do the math behind it in conclusion peter is a mad scientist math genius that drove himself into a corner with a whitejacket after cooking u pthe formula and thusly disappeared...it all makes sense

Depends on the hit chance of the move Tsenn. I doubt many moves would be 100% hit chance for BA anyway.

Missed moves do not show up on screen, and some moves have a negative difficulty, so your 60 sub stat doesn't mean that you'll auto hit every time. In fact, there are very few moves where you'd ever be able to get more than 100% hit.
