Game Interface

VOW has a list of links which comprise the game's main command options.

Prior to setting up your character, you will be brought to the VOW main screen. On the left hand side you can see a toolbar containing the different game interface links, in the middle any links information you click on is shown and on the right is the game's chat toolbar (this will be explained later).

We shall start off with the left toolbar and what these links do.

Red Message Link:
This link appears when someone sends you a challenge or a private message. If the red link YOU HAVE A MATCH appears, clicking it gives you the challenge details. If the red link # MESSAGE appears, it is either a note from another player or the result of a match you issued. Clicking this link will take you to your Message Inbox.

(# = the number of unread messages you have)

This page provides you with the contact details of the game administrators and moderators. Clicking on the Contact link temporarily logs you out of VOW; you can return to the game by clicking your browser's Back button.

Bonus AP (Votes):
VOW's gameplay is based on Action Points (AP). Almost all actions require AP, including making matches, healing and maintaining stats. You can get up to 200 AP a day by clicking on Bonus AP (Votes). This takes you to a links page of different game ranking sites where VOW is competing to become the game of the month. Clicking a voting link gets you AP; it is important that you follow the voting instructions, as failure to do so will eventually result in a removal of your voting privileges. Once you have maxed out the 200 AP available from voting, you will not be able to earn more AP until the next day.

Game Status:
This page provides details such as the current server time and in-game statistics such as player numbers, move numbers, challenges and fighting styles.

IRC Web Chat:
This page once opened up a new window and directed you to a web chat area, but this feature has since been terminated due to lack of use.

This page opens up a separate window to the PLIT games forum. You will be asked to sign in as a guest or use your account ID before being directed to the forum page. The forums are sorted into sections for each PLIT game.

Player Pages:
This page contains webpages made by the players of the different PLIT games. These pages are either hosted by PLIT or are on an external server, with the PLIT-hosted pages at the top of the screen. These pages include manuals and guides for the different PLIT games, player profiles, and other information. Clicking any of the player pages takes you out of VOW, though you can return by using your browser's Back button.

Reload Chat:
This link refreshes the chat section on the right of your screen and brings it up to date.

Wrestler Stats:
This page displays your character's stats, including:

  • Character Name and ID
  • Stable and ID
  • Creation Date
  • Money
  • Fighting Style
  • Total AP Used
  • Current AP
  • Strength, Submission, Technique, Aerial, Consciousness and Vital Life Stats
  • Fame
  • Experience
  • League
  • Wins and Losses

Underneath the stats box you have the option to write a small description of your wrestler of up to 250 characters. The Wrestler Stats section also has a list of the moves you currently own as well as the moves you have specialized. You can edit the description of your special moves through the Wrestler Stats page.

Here you are given the option to change each of the staff (doctor, physical trainer and match coach) to a level between 0 and 2. Level 0 will take no percentage of your match winnings, level 1 will take 15% and 2 will take 35%. Once set the current level will be shown in the relevant column.

Here you can see a small table detailing the current level of your wrestler's stats and the maximum level they can achieve. If any of your stats are below maximum, then you will be allowed to train them here. You have the option to put as much AP as you wish in the "AP to use" column as well as the option to use a personal trainer.

Personal training costs $10/AP, but is well worth it. Once your stat is near maximum, personal training is the only way to maximize your stat. The success rate for training is completely random, as one day you might raise a stat with 1 AP/$10, and another day it might cost you 33 AP/$330 to raise your stat a single point.

Surplus AP and cash used for training will be refunded once the trained stat reaches maximum.

Locker Room:
Here you can see your current money and AP level and beneath that a large selection of moves (138 in total) which you can buy for your wrestler. Clicking on any of the words on the top of the first 3 columns enables you to sort them in order of each category. The last category gives you the option to buy any of these moves if you have the money.
If you scroll to the bottom of the screen you will see a section for buying special moves. Here it will show you the current cost for your next special, the base move to use, custom move name and custom description for you.

This page allows you to heal your Consciousness and Vital Life.

2 AP/$4 = 1 Vital Life/4 Consciousness

The amount of AP shown here defaults to the amount needed to restore your Vital Life. Once Vital Life is full, there is no need to spend any more AP and money in R & R. The Auto-Heal function will restore the rest of your Consciousness once your next match starts at the cost of 1 AP/2 Consciousness at no additional monetary cost.

It is common practice to visit the R & R page after every match.

This page displays all of your active matches and challenges.

Challenges issued to you will be displayed at the top, while challenges that you issue will be displayed below. It is best to scout your opponents by clicking on their Wrestler IDs before accepting any challenges.

Beneath these match boxes is another box in which you can issue challenges provided that you know an opponent's ID. Your current AP and cash is also displayed underneath.

Clicking on this link will take you to the tournament page. The table at the top of the page displays the belt names, champions, and the number of the current and next round participants in each tournament.

Beneath the table are the tournaments you are eligible to apply for, as well as the cost of the entrance fee* and the amount of current participants. For a tournament to start 8 participants must have entered.

*The cost to join a tournament is displayed in cash, not AP. The Tournament page does not specify this, so it is helpful to clarify this here.

Tournament Results:
Clicking on this link will take you to the Tournament Results page.

Simply here you will find the entire back catalog of VOW tournaments that have taken place. By clicking on any link in the title column you can access that tournaments record and look at the results and the wrestlers that took part. Beneath this table of information you can select what tournament number range you wish to look at.

Clicking on this link will take you to the Messages page. Earlier was mentioned how by clicking on the red # MESSAGE link, you could access this same page through this way. When you have a message or messages they will appear under the columns headed from, to etc. You have the option to look at your inbox, outbox, deleted or all messages, delete messages and create a message.

Also above this section you will find a small box where by entering an ID number or part of a name you can look up any wrestler in the current VOW player list.

Player List:
This page is the tool most commonly used to pick fights. Here you will see a large table displaying 50 wrestlers ordered by last access to the site. Here you can see their names and league. Also note the letters C and M on the final two columns. These are quick links to make challenges (C) and send messages (M). Beneath you can again switch between groups of 50 wrestlers much like the tournament table mentioned previously.

The player list displays the currently active players by default, but it is possible to sort the list by other parameters at the bottom of the page.

Legends of VOW:
This page displays a list of all the VOW wrestlers who have achieved Legend status. To be entered you simply must have bought every move from the locker room. The list is a simple table format once again with 3 columns for legend number, character and the (M) link to message any of the legends still in the game.

Beneath this there is a number range in increments of 50 to scroll between the pages of legends.

Beneath this there is a link to enter the legends list once you have achieved eligibility.

All Matches:
Much like the tournament results screen, this is a backlog of all matches fought or challenged on VOW. It shows you the competitors, match type and its current status (fought/open). Clicking on the match will take you to the match screen or challenge words depending on its status. Again at the bottom of this table each match is shown in blocks of 50. You can also filter matches by typing in an ID at the bottom if you want to check a particular wrestlers recent matches.

Tag Teams:
This page provides you with 4 choices:

  • View all current tag teams
  • Create a new tag team contest
  • Create a tag team
  • View all tag team matches

When viewing all teams or all team matches it works in a similar way to the player list and all matches sections. By clicking on a team or a match you can view a team profile or a match that has occurred or is yet to occur.

To create a tag team first click the link and then place the name of your tag team in the first box. Your tag ID is automatically placed as part of the team so there is no need to input it. You can place up to 4 ID's other than yourself in a tag team. Each tag team has its own separate ID.

To simulate matches containing more than two wrestlers, you can simply make a tag team with just yourself in it (no need to put down any ID's) and then only you will fight in tag matches. This can in theory mean 10 man matches like battle royals.

To create a new tag team match first click the link then place your own tag team ID in the first box. Then write in the challenge words as you would for a normal match. Beneath that you can then place up to another 9 tag team ID's to make up your tag match before finalizing it.

Beneath all of this you will find the names and ID's of any tag teams you are in. Clicking on these will bring up the members.

When you first begin you will not be in a stable. You can apply for any stable in the game but, being accepted into the stable is another matter. This can be done by selecting a stable from the drop down list. Alternatively, you can create your own stable by clicking the relevant link, but you must have at least 50 exp to do so.

Once you have joined or created a stable the details of your stable will now appear instead of the previous information. On this page now you will see the name of your stable at the top. Beneath this any description of your stable is visible. Beneath this a table showing the members of the stable is present. The vote's column represents the members voting for the stable leader. You can change your vote from the drop down list below. If you are the stable leader you have the ability to change the stable's name, description, assigning and kicking out of members and stable donations.

The donations section underneath is visible to everyone in the stable. If at anytime a member wants to donate any amount of money into the stable fund then they can just input an amount and submit it. The leader can then use this money to increase the size of the stable to gain more members. Note that for each increase in size the next increase will cost more to implement.

Beneath this section is a message box like that of the messages section. This is so any member can send a message out to the other members of the stable.

Finally, at the bottom of the screen is the option to leave the stable if you wish.

Stable List:
This page displays a long list of all the stables in VOW in order of member number. Clicking on any of these stables brings up the stable's page with name, description and members table.

Stable Ranking:
This page allows you to sort the list of stables. The list is sorted by money by default, but can be rearranged by different criteria at the bottom of the page.

Add Player Page:
Here you will find a large text section where you can write a player page about anything which, once submitted, will be placed in the player page section. There is a space to put the page title and underneath a large area for HTML code.

Donations from players are vital to help keep the PLIT servers running and are rewarded with many options:

  • Priority access to the server over non-donators
  • Extra AP gain for your wrestler
  • Option to buy additional AP
  • Can have 3 wrestlers at once rather than just one
  • The 500 AP upper limit is removed

At the top of the screen are details on the prices you pay for the length of your donation in US dollars.
At the bottom of the screen are details on what you need to donate and relevant information for transactions.

A simple acknowledgment is shown here towards our sponsors and the game contributors.
