Hey : )

Well let me try make a good one :D
1st when you start you need to pick your wrestler syle.

Power Grapplers: They get a 3+ damage advantage.

Aerialist: They have a higher move hit chance

Traditional: They have an increased pin chance in singles.

Stiff Necks: They have good defense so moves sometimes dont hit for as much damage.

Technicals: They have increased counter chance.

So basically they counter more then the other types.

OK now, You log into VOW and your in.
On the side there are a few Options:

Main Menu: Click this and you will go to the main VOW page. (http://vow.plit.dk/)

Conduct and Privacy: Here is the rules in VOW.
Like no multiple accounting, No Offensive Behaviour you know stuff like that.

OK Thats all the menus on the side.

1st when you start off VOW you want to make your wrestlers Stats better.
So go to the Gym and train your stats.
Try maxing Consciousness before anything else.
But still train the other stats whilst trying to max consiouness.
I say max Consciousness 1st because thats what determines how easy you can get knocked out.
Always use a Personal Trainer.

Then after you train your stats, Go to the Locker Room and buy your special move.
Your 1st Special move is free.

Now set your staff. 2,0,0 i recommend
DONT FULL STAFF!! This gets wrestlers frustrated and doesnt do you any good because you dont get any money.

You need money to train your stats and heal in R & R as well as buying moves.

After this you should be ready to fight.

Before you Accept and Challenge check thier stats. If thier stats are better then yours DO NOT ACCEPT!!

After a match go to Gym and Train your stats with the money that you win.

Then go to R & R and heal your Consciousness.

Oh i forgot this

When you start the game you start off in LAW

SPWA 250 Experience

PWO 800 Experience

SSWO 2000 Experience

Some Helpfull Hints and Tips:

Dont buy moves unless thier at minimum unless you really need them. You know when moves are at minimum because Achilles Tendon Hold is at 860 $$

Only enter about 2 Tournements at once.

Because if you enter all of them.. And all the matches are played in one day.. Your in trouble.. lol

Try making your wrestler unique and buy whatever moves you think your wrestler would do in real life.

If your wrestler is really dirty and likes to bite, Then by all means buy the bite!!

Use Ap by itself in the gym at the start of the game until stats won't raise anymore.

And don't worry about moves when you first join the game, Stats are the more important to begin with.

I think ive covered most of the things that a Noob should know.

Good Luck in VOW : )

SPWA 25 Experience

Since when?! :P

To the noobs reading, its 250 experience, and i believe the minimal price for moves now is 860.

2005-02-27 17:00:00
You sure its 860?? Im almost 100 % sure its 890..

890 for Achillies Tendon
360 for Dragon Screw

Also, in the gym, use the starting 2500ap with no physical trainer to get some increased stats (to 75% or so... con goes to 56 i know) - should cost about 500-750 ap depending on what you raise.

Achilles Tendon Hold Submission 860
The victim is on their back, the attacker grabs one of the legs of a victim so that their foot is in the attacker's armpit. The attacker puts his arm under the knee of the victim, sits back and applies a leg scissor lock.

2005-02-28 16:19:33
OK - Dragon Screw is always 360.... any arguments there? Can't seem to wonder how ATH got to 860

You guys are so stupid... the price of the moves change depending on how many (And the price of the move you bought) and how long you've fought. So the more I fight the cheaper ti gets. The more I buy the more expensive it gets.

Well you learn something new everyday :S
Post by: The Legend Killer(21778)
2005-03-03 16:15:29
Depends what Scorp was talking about:

The Peter being secretive or the thing about moves getting cheaper all the time.

I find it frustrating that the openig VOW page says "The rules are explained within the game so just join it and play." But I have to hunt down every blasted scrap of info here in Forums, instead of being able to "join and play"...what utter crap! Any similar sites out there that actually tell you what's going on?
