Ivan Koloff Brings His Reign of Terror to Color Legends

During the height of the Cold War, Ivan Koloff was one of the most notorious villains in wrestling history.  His tremendous strength and willingness to use any means necessary to win made him one of the most feared competitors of his era.  “The Russian Bear”  won singles, tag and even six-man tag team gold wherever he went.  He feuded with all of the biggest names over his thirty year career.  Will he resume his notable rivalries with the Road Warriors and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express?  Will he choose to associate with other Soviet stars like Nikolai Volkoff and Boris Zhukov?  It’s up to you, Promoter!

Ivan Koloff is part of Legends:  Expansion Pack II along with Johnny Valentine and the Masked Superstar.   This 10-card set will be available for preorder on 4/2 with a Special Edition Card and EVOLVE 5.  All games are scheduled to begin mailing on April 16th.

New Online Game System Scheduled to go Live on March 28!

Great news, Online fans!  We’ve made upgrades to our games that will make them safer and more secure than ever. There are even some improvements, so let’s get to it!

First, we have updated the game code to make it more secure and to migrate our systems to a new server. Larry Swank, the original architect of the system, has led the team working on this project.

There are also some cool upgrades, like improvements to the Card Editor and more options with the PBP Simulator, but the biggest changes are the ones that protect the system and make it more stable. The new Online version will serve as a base for Filsinger Games to make more upgrades in the future.

After months of work behind-the-scenes our last major step is to migrate the Online game system to the new server. This will necessitate a down period where the system is unavailable. This is expected to last no more than one day. We are currently planning to make this move on Tuesday, March 27 starting at approximately 9 AM EDT. We apologize for any inconvenience…but it’ll be worth it!

We promised we would improve our Online games and we’re doing it! We thank our great fans for their patience. Get those virtual dice ready because we’re better than ever!

Masked Superstar joins the Color Legends Roster!

It’s time to announce the first wrestler in the next Legends of Wrestling color expansion set.  He is one of the most notorious masked wrestlers in history.  He’s not going to scream or shout.  He’s just going to dominate your fed with his unbreakable cobra clutch.

The Masked Superstar is coming to the LWF.  Will he feud with the Destroyer, another masked wrestler?  Or will someone else draw his attention?  You will decide this April when the Masked Superstar ships with the second Legends Expansion set.

Masked Superstar is part of a 10-card expansion set that will feature new wrestlers as wells as some remakes of classic characters from the black and white Legends games.  Keep watching over the coming weeks as we announce the names in this anticipated game edition!

The Workhorsemen Will Bolster EVOLVE Tag Team Division!

The EVOLVE tag team division was shaken up in the summer of 2017, when the duo of Anthony Henry and James Drake came together and shocked the EVOLVE tag team champions Catch Point and won the title in their first match tagging together.  Henry and Drake each made their names in the southeastern US independent scene primarily in singles matches.  However, since their big EVOLVE tag team title win in their home region of North Carolina, this duo has started competing regularly both in EVOLVE and in other promotions and is continuing to improve their work as a team.

The Workhorsemen, as they dubbed themselves, went on to have a few successful tag title defenses in the summer of 2017 before losing the titles to another unlikely duo of Ethan Page and ACH.  They earned another shot at the title in December against Catch Point, who reclaimed the titles, but that match ended in a no-contest.  Will they look to challenge for the title again, or focus more on singles competition and look to achieve the success in EVOLVE that both have had in singles competition outside the promotion?  It will be up to you to decide what paths Henry and Drake take in your promotion!

Anthony Henry and James Drake will join Matt Riddle, DJZ, Austin Theory, Dominic Garrini, and 2 other wrestlers in EVOLVE 5.  The game will be released at the WWN Live Experience in New Orleans in April and will mail out to Filsinger Games fans worldwide soon thereafter. Preorder for this set begins Monday April 2nd!

Its time to get the party started…DJZ is coming to the EVOLVE game!

The EVOLVE game is ready to have the volume turned up loud with wrestling’s preeminent DJ set to join the roster, DJZ!  This Filipino born wrestler has been wrestling for a number of years under s few different names and for a number of high profile companies.  But recently he joined the EVOLVE roster and has already made a splash.  Decked out in his new space-age entrance outfit, he is sure to catch the eye of EVOLEV fans on his way to the ring.  But its his high-flying abilities in the ring that will truly make him memorable to fans.  Although his record thus far in EVOLVE has not been stellar, given his experience and charisma, DJZ is bound to start winning matches along with the accolades of fans.

The King of Bros Joins the EVOLVE 5 Roster!

There is no denying that the EVOLVE wrestler who has grown the most over the past 2 years has been Matt Riddle.  So it is only fitting that the King of Bros himself gets an updated playing card in the newest EVOLVE expansion set.

Riddle has continued to grow his wrestling repertoire, including adding his patented Bro-mission, and his wrestling accolades.  After joining the Catch Point stable, he won the 2016 Style Battle tournament.  He continued his winning ways, but continued to come up short in his attempts to win the EVOLVE title.  However he did win the tournament to crown the inaugural WWN Live Championship in Orlando in 2017.  He held the title for over 6 months and is sure to taste gold in an EVOLVE ring again soon enough.

Matt Riddle will join Austin Theory, Dominic Garrini, and 5 other wrestlers in EVOLVE 5.  The game will be released at the WWN Live Experience in New Orleans in April and will mail out to Filsinger Games fans worldwide soon thereafter. Get indie promotion ready to EVOLVE!
