My view is that since the Cornellverse is a fantasy world, you can put your own spin on the characters and book them the way you envision them, so to speak. I've had fun toying around with Montreal and Rising Storms in the past though, and I'm curious about the 2005 mod.

Was thinking of starting a WWE game with Fleisch's mod (might play around with stats), and was thinking of a second Nexus angle. I have Almas and Revival lined up, but who else asides from Roode or Shinsuke could work as the leader, who'd get a push right to the main event of Raw? I considered hiring EC3 or Eli Drake to be the leader, or if push comes to shove, turning Finn heel and having him be the RRR.

So yo, I need some help.
I want to play as WCW/nWo in War of the Immortals (hopefully WOTI 5 since that's supposed to be coming out soon, but 4 will have to do if not) and there's a stable I want to work with.

Rey Mysterio and Billy Kidman are on the starting roster and have a good amount of tag experience. I want to capitalise a bit on this by having a Filthy Animals stable. But since this is War of the Immortals, which is a battle of wrestling's All-Stars, I want to do a "timeless" version of the Filthy Animals.

I'm thinking of using Rey and Kidman obviously, but also 2000s Jack Evans and maybe Carlito as well to give a solid core of 4 members.

Basically I want the stable to be late 90s style young colours babyface "in your face" cocky rebels in contrast to the black and white, slightly older nWo.

Like, if you could put any wrestling stars past or present into a "Filthy Animals" stable, who would you guys pick?

I think it does have Ricochet, but even if it doesn't, I can more or less import any big name from the present from another data base.

On one hand, I like the suggestion of Ricochet, having him in tag and trios matches with Rey would be great and help bring his popularity up. On the other hand, I almost feel like the audience would constantly be expecting Ricochet to turn on Rey, for some reason, in a "this stable isn't big enough for the both of us" type deal.

I'll have to ponder on that.

Amazing Red is another name I've just started considering, but again, I'm not so sure.

I think a Ricochet heel turn could be a good angle down the line, myself. How far do you see the Filthy Animals going? Will any of them be at the main event or will they be a prominent midcard stable?

Rey has enough popularity to be a main eventer but I want him to be the anchor of the cruiserweight division, because without him it's very flat.

I'm bringing in Super Dragon to be a lone wolf heel, and I'm probably bringing in Finn Balor/Prince Devitt as the nWo's man in the Cruiserweight division. They'd be major antagonists to Rey.

The purpose of the Filthy Animals is to be backup to Rey against the likes of Balor, who'll have nWo//Club (I'm basically amalgamating the two) back up.

They also help fill up the tag division, which isn't that well populated initially.

Interesting booking ideas. Like the idea of combining nWo and Bullet Club, not to mention it'd be fun seeing Devitt as Real Rock n' Rolla (which I assume you'll be pushing him as). I might give WOTI a try when 5 comes out, seems like a fun database.

I was thinking, what would you suggest for my Nexus II idea for the leader? I'm still deciding between hiring EC3 or Eli Drake from TNA (thinking EC3 would be Derrick Bateman again but given a revamp, Eli Drake might get a new name) or turning Balor/Devitt heel. Almas doesn't come off as leader material to me and he and Revival are definitely in.

That 2005 mod doesn't work for me for some reason. I've done what I've done with other mods and it keeps saying I'm missing important files and the application won't start.

Also if I remove time limits in the settings are my matches more likely to be rated better? I always try to book realistically but I've rarely had any good ratings for guys outside the main event or there abouts.. I'm thinking of starting with the ewr throwback options and turning a few things on

Have the monday night war mods improved? I remember back in the EWR days pretty much the entire WCW mainevent scene had crap stats like 5 brawl, a 50-70 charisma and everything else at 0. So unless you were going to edit everyone there was no incentive to keep the old guard around, cause anything you'd have them do would 1. suck and 2. drain their overness.

The first TEW was a million times more sophisticated than EWR, and then the newer TEWs are a million times more sophisticated than the first TEW.

Certain products (the style of the promotion) can take people who have no brawl and a ton of charisma and make them the most popular wrestlers in the world, because their style doesn't focus on in ring performance, so long as they have star quality to begin with.

So even if mod makers have an anti-WCW bias, the system itself can still somwhat overcome that if the product is correctly modelled. In the latest TEWs, it's entirely possible for Hulk Hogan to pull in the TEW equivalent of a 5 star regularly just on his charisma and popularity alone, cool movez be damned.

What will/would cause more of a headache for you playing WCW in current TEW mods is the mod makers tenancy to make make the WCW backstage atmosphere worse than hell itself. I mean it was bad in real life especially in 1998 but sometimes still they go overboard, trying to mirror every little comment ever said in a shoot interview.

Because most mod makers are too lazy to utilize all of the features of the game. I had a mod once that didn't bother filling out anyone's drug history (therefore no one had a drug habit), and another mod where they didn't bother changing anyone's personality. One thing that really bugs me is not filling out Hall of Immortals inductions. There's tons of mods where a person should be halfway to HOI, but they aren't because the modder just didn't do it. I just started a WCW 2001 mod, Big Show doesn't have any HOI data despite being a 3 time World Champion, main eventing WrestleMania 2000, and being voted PWI Wrestler of the Year in 1996. That alone is like half way to HOI.

Finally got that 2005 mod working and now I can't decide between starting as WWE or TNA or both. On one hand I could be WWE and finally have a Sting vs Taker feud to name just one. But I also kinda fancy moving a few guys to TNA (who went there eventually anyway) and bringing in Punk and rehashing the feud he had with Raven in ROH but extending it so it's just him feuding with other guys who had drug and drink problems. I wonder what would happened if I chose to play as Shane McMahon as owner or booker?

Still gonna have to make quite a few changes myself though. Punk is ridic good on it for example. I think he needs toning down a tad.

If the gimmick is absolutely trash, you're going to have to do what you'd do in real life, either keep them off TV/shows for an extended period of time and bring them back under a new character, or clench your teeth through all the penalties and go through with the gimmick regardless.

I might actually go ahead with using Hero, Joe or Owens as the leader. Could give Owens something to do and help reestablish him as a top heel on RAW (I'll be phasing out Steph and Haitch out of both personal preference and the desire to tell a new story). So far here is the planned stable: Owens, Joe, Almas and Revival. The idea would be that the stable runs roughshed on Raw, beating everyone, and the idea would be to long-term give Roman some character development as Nexus II humbles him, as well as establish #DIY as a new top tag team on Raw.

As for Smackdown, I'm thinking of turning Dean heel and have him either go full PG Jon Moxley or form a new stable, with the idea of getting the two into the main event with Dean while having AJ as the face, basically doing AJ vs. Dean again with the alignments swapped around.

Not really.

I think I can sorta understand why, since the game has a setting to naturally bump and randomize stats at the start of a game... but it sets my OCD into motion.

Rounded amounts sounds better to me. Whenever I make changes to a mod I generally go up in fives. I don't get what's accurate about giving say, HHH an 83 in microphone for example. Where's the logic in that?

I've never played a save longer than a month (Only had the game since Christmas) because I always run into game breaking issues that cause me to restart. Last time for example I couldn't have a Shane vs AJ match at Mania because of an issue with the mod. Even using the in-game editor wasn't fixing it.

Is it possible to actually get lower guys over pretty quickly? Would I be better creating my own angles or what? And maybe taking the times off matches? Also when it comes to product as it says wrestlers are judged on their popularity does that mean match between Breeze and Crews will always get a shit grade because neither guy is very popular?

You get lowercard guys over by pairing them up with someone who is higher on the card, if you do it consistently and don't stop they'll eventually climb up the ranks in popularity. Wrestling ability still matters somewhat in popularity based promotions, but waaaaaaaaay less, so yes, Breeze vs Crews will usually give you a bad grade.

I'm just starting a game with Fleisch's mod, and I have such conflicted feelings on it. Half the time I'm blown away by just bizarre errors or omissions (some promotions' rosters haven't had the personality/behavior/etc./ touched at all), and the other half of the time I'm blown away at the accuracy and breadth of what actually is there. If you're willing to put in the effort fixing stats and such, it's a great framework for that, but otherwise it's just maddening.

Yeah pretty much. The stats are definitely fucked (Naito STILL has an E+ in SQ and mediocre charisma, I'd argue he's B- and B respectively at least) but it's a great framework.

I'm doing my Fleisch save right now, and I'm struggling with how I should book Brock, especially as the Nexus II angle is building up steam. It feels a bit wrong to have him drop it to Owens or Joe at a B PPV, I'm willing to build up to Brock vs. Roman at SummerSlam and have him drop it there and fuck off.

I probably won't touch much outside WWE or TNA, but I'll make a few tweaks I think are needed (especially how gimmick status and face/heel alignment are set to random on a lot of guys) and I'll give a few guys a little stat boost in various places too (quite a few guys need a psychology boost imo) . I'll be sure to make a note of changes I've made so if anyone downloads it they can amend things they don't agree with post haste.

Dark matches change momentum, build experience, and avoid the morale modifiers for being left off the show.

Doing my NJPW vs Gaijin game, it's going pretty good. Top company in the world, almost at International size.

Omega & Ibushi just won World Tag League. They'll face of against Shibata & Goto at Wrestle Kingdom 13. The main event is IWGP Champ Kevin Steen (of The Elite) vs G1 Winner, KENTA

I've kinda turned it into Dragongate, in that there are like 8 stables running around.
There's a bunch of Dragongate people as a team, some LU guys, the TIME-MACHINEGUNS (MCMG, KUSHIDA, Ibushi & Omega), a fusion of Suzuki-gun & Ingobernables, The All-NOAH (AJPW & NOAH guys), Eurotrash, New Japan's Heroes, RONIN, & two evil Gaijin stables: The Elite 2.0 & ULTIMATES.

Best match so far is Steen beating Sami for the IWGP title, with a 99. Then Gargano/Ricochet vs Penta/Fenix in WTL with 98.

Things of note:
>Top new teams formed, due to excellent chemistry: Jeff Cobb & Jason Jordan, Dalton Castle & Sami Callihan, Kota Ibushi & KUSHIDA (IBUSHIDA), Matt Sydal & Lio Rush, BUSHI & Rocky Romero, Eita & Sho Tanaka, Chris Hero& Sami Zayn.
>Chris Sabin & Marty Scurll won a roster-wide, Lethal Lottery tag tournament.
>Bryan Danielson & KENTA have horrible chemistry.
>Tranq-gun (Ingobernables & Suzuki-gun) was lead by Tetsuya Naito until Dragongate bought him from under me. The new leader is Shibata.
>Bullet-Club disbanded until The Elite was formed by Cole, Omega & the Bucks. Karl Anderson, Trevor Lee & Prince Devitt all joined. Omega was betrayed by the Elite by the debuting Kevin Steen who they all sided with. Kota Ibushi helped save him & Omega joined the Time-MACHINEGUNS. Trevor Lee was also betrayed after he failed to take the IWGP Intercontinental title away from Shinsuke.
>TenCozy, Sakuraba, Makabe, Yuji Nagata, Jushin Liger & TAKA Michinoku formed a stable called the Oldguard. Suzuki & Jericho almost joined, but swerved on them.
>I hired Finlay senior as a road agent. In a month, he started 3 fights and was mad when I suspended him after the third.

>tend to go for risky gimmicks and have a midcard full of goofy characters while the main event is quite serious
>stable wars are a big thing, I often tend to make a big heel stable to book as the top threat, usually faced with a loose alliance of faces

It depends on who I'm booking, but the Eric Bischoff style "send out the cruiserweights to do a stunt show early in the card" seems to be a constant for me. I sometimes run a Technical Masterclass as the opener just because it prospers with a cold crowd, but it's easier to find spot monkeys than great technicians.

I've been booking my pre-shows like that for ages. Crowd management is turned on and never burned out the crowd before starting the show. I do set the aim as "work the crowd" for all the pre-show, but I seem to recall experimenting with the more exciting match aims and finding that people just don't get excited by dark matches. (To be honest, the only crowd burn-out effects I've ever encountered are hitting a hyped crowd with Technical Masterclass and doing back-to-back Wild Brawls. If you have another way to get a penalty from crowd management, let me know!)

Tag team wrestling is arguably better than singles in TEW. You have more guys available to cover key attributes like Selling and Psychology, can get bonuses for team chemistry and experience, and there are no chemistry effects between teams (i.e. the Steiner Brothers as a team does not have a chemistry relationship with the Road Warriors) so you don't need to pre-test your matches.

I'm providing an update that nobody will read as I kind of need to take a second to review my save and put everything into perspective. I'm 14 months into a 1983 mod and I've just had my end of month show for February. I've finally figured out a lot of the game's mechanics, with the relationship between storyline heat and match grade being the latest thing I've worked out.

At the moment I'm trying to work out the penalties for rematches not being longer. For example, if match 1 goes 15 minutes, match 2 will be penalized for going 15 minutes or less. I've only just worked this out, so I'll probably create a couple of feuds with the purpose of testing out what the thresholds are.

Hercules Hernandez is my champion at the moment because I was doing absolutely nothing with Backlund and Hercules got himself insanely over (Currently at 98 pop for Tri State). I mainly wanted him as a transitional champ so that I could get the strap on Hogan, but I have a very face heavy roster so I might just let him run the gauntlet until I get bored. Although I was pretty disappointed with that rating; if he can't start getting 90s I'll probably give up on him. Can't complain though, I only signed him as I wanted to test getting guys over based on the menace stat. He went from low 20s to 98 pop, which is my biggest success getting someone over (Star Quality is 73, so I well exceeded his soft-cap).

That semi-main rating surprised the hell out of me, had the fourth guy been someone a bit more dazzling than The Barbarian I probably would have got my first 100. That match was the first time I've tagged Hogan and Andre and apparently they've got great chemistry, which is pretty tremendous for cheesing high ratings. Rude is pretty great in this mod as well. Was generated with 85 star quality, which is now 98 after his weight change. I've already taken his popularity from 0 to 77 and with his performance skills I'm hoping that he ends up completely overpowered.

Wahoo McDaniel starts the game with a hatred of Vince McMahon (my player character), so I'm actually unable to sign him. When I bought out SWCW I got his contract, which had a year remaining on it. Assuming he doesn't get signed, I have 10 months to use him before he goes back to being impossible to sign. This is important as Wahoo McDaniel has completely overpowered stats in this mod, which that Eaton rating should tip off. I'll probably put him into a feud with Hercules, as a test of what the absolute highest rating Hercules can get at the moment.

The biggest challenge in this mod is getting women's wrestling over, as there is barely any female talent with decent USA pop. Richter is really solid now and Chigusa Nagayo is almost there, while everyone else is going up really slowly. This division is going to be such a slow build, but I've practically got to fix female wrestling in the united states.

Don't book like WWE.
If you're trying to raise someone up the card, they should be winning regularly, and if they need to lose, it should be to an established person at the top of the card. They should not be trading wins and loses with guys already on their level. Avoid doing the "I beat you, you beat me, now let's do a rubber match" stuff that WWE does. If you need someone to take a loss to setup a match, having the loss occur in a tag team match, so the loser can try and make the argument his tag partner was part of the reason he lost (if the guy losing is a heel).
If you're in a entertainment style company, there's no reason two guys can't talk each other into a match, that is to say there's no reason a big match can't be set up by one guy challenge or insulting the other. This will help you avoid the rubber match setup.

A lot of the early game is trying to get people's momentum where it should be, and proper booking will achieve that. Wins and losses do matter. Use jobbers on one night deals to help guys build momentum.

If you're going to have one of your raising stars lose to one of your top guys, say for a title defence, imagine that the story of the match is the raising star came so close, and looked like he was almost at that level. But keep that pressure up; his next bunch of matches should be that raising star now beating a bunch of guys using the experience/knowledge he gained in the main event match.

He wasn't THAT over in the mod. I think his starting popularity was C? I was going to have to build him into a main eventer. Plus I was going to feud him with Samoa Joe again (they have similar stats) and build up Joe at the same time.

>>5722767
This. Losses count way more than they should. Also bad TV shows can really hurt your promotion (which I think is bit unrealistic, how many Raws or Smackdowns a year are truly great?)

I usually turn off momentum, the game is way too strict with that. Pro wrestling has always been full of surprises and TEW's momentum system is literally the opposite of that. Any surprise win will get a bad grade because the person didn't previously have high momentum.

Momentum doesn't force you "to do what's already happening", it just forces you to be more consistent.
And doesn't take 6 months to rebuild someone unless you don't have TV. And even then, there's all sorts of tricks to restoring someone. If someone has terrible momentum, a well placed heel or face turn can help turn someone from cold to hot again.

If someone has C- or above momentum, it's not going to take that many wins over the right people to get them bubbling again. If they're D+ or below, it's going to take a little bit of work to restore their credibility, but nothing that can't be fixed.

If they're anything E+ or below, the fans see them as guys that have been losing forever and if you try and have them go over people on hot streaks they quite rightly feel like it's something out of nothing. Like even if James Ellsworth and Health Slater are on the same level of popularity, if Slater has won his last 10 matches and Ellsworth has lost his last 10, and Ellsworth goes over Slater, the fans find it jarring. But that said, IIRC the penalty you're taking is not that great. It's something to consider, but not something that's going to fuck with the match grade all that significantly.

I've never felt cheated by the momentum in TEW. When a guy is hot, it's very satisfying to know I brought him to that point and I'm being rewarded for that. If I've got a guy who's down in the dumps, typically I know why, it's because I've had him on the backburner forever without reprieve.

It was only after already posting this I realised that R-Truth & Goldust, Primo & Epico, and the Ascension are probably better WWE analogies than Ellsworth of guys who are not necessarily unpopular in wrestling terms, but whose momentum is so in the gutter it affects their matches and how fan perceive them.

So for example it's that people dislike Goldust, but if he was to beat Jericho for the US title next week people would think it a bit jarring.

But again I also want to stress that momentum penalties are not going take a 5 star match and smash it down to 3; it's just going to knock a small, certain amount of points off.

Pretty much what Celt said. 2016's new momentum system is really good because it can simulate that kind of thing well. Take the Thunderverse, where I'm running an AWF save: Joe Havanna starts out on the lower end of the midcard, but by booking him to win matches and cut successful promos (via using Freestyle Angle and setting the Storyline to Success) he rapidly got over and is now firm in the US title picture, and by the end of 2016 possibly in the World title picture. Chad Zuma and Jerrell Park, the latter two I hired early on, started out auto-pushed as jobbers, but their success in the Hawk vs. Dolla Club angle (Zuma is Hawk's old buddy and Park is a new Dolla Club signing) have seen their momentum rise up, hell I'm thinking of pushing both straight to the World title scene in order to insert fresh blood into the main event and then put them back down in the midcard.

>Does it install unwelcome bullshit on your computer?

....No. eLicense is not spyware, it's a prim and proper, if old school, way of doing business.
It's more or less like having a steam code for game. You pay for TEW, you get sent a code, you input the code into eLicense and then you're able to play the game.

The only difference between eLicense and a steam code in practical terms is that an eLicense is locked into one device/computer.

Really? Because in the save I've now abandoned Roman asked for his release 6 weeks in. I don't really understand how this game works, it's not like I was jobbing him out, he just lost a few times by interference and flash pinfalls, not even to jobbers. Unless the version on xwt is fucked. Literally everyone is mad.

You must have done something to piss him off. Did you have him lose matches that he protested about? (i.e. you got a pop-up saying that he was furious about the booking and you just let that go?)

> it's not like I was jobbing him out, he just lost a few times by interference and flash pinfalls, not even to jobbers.
What matters in terms of morale is:
  1. Are they losing to people substantially less over than them?
  2. Are you going to Protect or Keep Strong the guy losing?
  3. What's the personality of the guy losing? Personalities like Hogan or Nash don't like losing unless it's to someone more over than them, whereas Bobby Eaton types are more understanding.

You can usually get workers to accept losses with Protect and/or Keep Strong and if you can't, seriously reconsider why you're booking the loss. Keep Strong is best when the match will get a good grade, Protect is more useful when the worker losing (or, in some cases, winning) is a lot less capable in-ring than their opponent.

If all else fails and you really need to leech overness off someone, put them in a Unit Tag Team with a less over partner. Wrestlers are dumb as shit in TEW and actually believe that their popularity won't be hurt when their tag team loses, so long as they're not the one eating the pin.

Easy enough to cycle and raise momentum and pop throughout your roster.

Your top guys should only be losing on PPV.

Have your storylined guys and popular guys win on your A show like RAW. The Undercard guys and guys further up you're planning on jobbing for a little bit, due to age or whatever taking the pins on your A tv show and PPV's should pick up wins on your B Tv show against your developmental guys or local guys you bring in for the odd appearance. Your dev guys will just go back down, pick up a few wins and regain there momentum, they may even impress enough to keep up.

Heck fucking Virgil of all people has been jobbing constantly for the better part of 2 years and went from enhancement to midcarder due to appearing on the A show, even with loses.. he wont get higher than midcard on the back of loses but he's on the roster to lose constantly, pure fodder, little better than a local talent but he may be useful now he's developed a bit, pick up a couple wins against locals to build momentum to pass it onto my rising young guys.

Look at the matches that precede it. It's an 8 man tournament.

The game has yearly tournament championships (like KOR, Super 8, etc) and some mod makers use it for annual even matches like Royal Rumble, MITB, etc. But the AI only books tournaments. Most mod makers include stuff like Royal Rumble, MITB, etc but makes then inactive, so people playing as WWE can book them if they want.

There are some important points about momentum left out here.

Firstly, anyone pushed as Enhancement Talent does not lose momentum for losing a match. This means that it isn't strictly necessary to bring in outsiders in order to build momentum through the card.

Secondly, momentum shifts in dark matches (pre- or post-show), so there's no need to build momentum on a B-Show. A B-Show is really for getting talent over without risk to your promotion's popularity. You can do whatever you like in dark matches, as crowd management only runs from the Opener to the Main Event, but I normally use "Work the Crowd" as the match aim because I believe that it reduces the match intensity.

Those two points are the foundation of my momentum management for a fairly wealthy promotion at Cult or above: the undercard goes over jobbers in dark matches, then transfers momentum up the card in the main show. This results in Major Positive momentum for about half the card, with most of the remainder solidly in Positive. (The exceptions are Freelancers getting ground into the dust or Development guys who came up with momentum issues.) Typically, most of my Enhancement Talents are development guys called up for one night only and manually assigned them to ET because Openers DO lose momentum when they lose matches. It would be possible to sign pure jobbers with high Performance Skills (especially Safety) and little in the way of other interesting abilities. If you try the latter route, my advice is to keep your jobbers off TV so that they don't gain too much popularity while putting people over - it's not worth dealing with pay rise requests from guys who are just there to lose, and they'll start to get unhappy if you keep them at ET when they'd auto-push higher.

It's also possible to build momentum in angles. Depending on your scruples, you could use freestyle angles to give everyone involved a major success every time they come out. More modest uses of angles (such as the vanilla beatdowns where two or three workers get a Success in exchange for inflicting a Defeat on one guy) can still generate momentum.

So I started a game with present data in May. 2 weeks from Backlash. I'm trying to play things pretty true to life atm but then will start doing my own thing as I enter June/July. I've given New Day and Cena time off to reflect their absences and Rusev is injured so SmackDown is pretty bare bones atm.

I've brought in the World's Greatest tag team to feud with AA. Bought Bob Holly in for a month in the hope I can get Mojo a little bit more over before I team him with MVP (who will eventually turn on him) before Ryder comes back, who again will eventually turn on Mojo, jealous of the success he's had in his absence but I might stretch this out for the rest of 2017 because I want them to win the tag titles at some point.

I kinda needs some ideas for the rest of SmackDown's undercard though. English and Dillinger are feuding atm but I've got nothing for either afterwards. Same with Jinder after he's done with Orton. I was thinking maybe him and the Sings vs New Day but meh. Maybe if I brought some pro USA guy up from development or signed someone??? I could stick them with AA and have a 3v3. Any ideas? Maybe Darren Young when he's back could work. Similar stats to Jinder too.

I might send Bo to SD and have him team with English and maybe put Rowan with them who is currently feuding with Harper but again will have nothing to do afterwards. I feel like SD needs more jobbers than RAW atm if I'm to get Breezdaango and the Ascension over so I might move Truth and Goldust there but I'm trying to phase out most of the guys over 40.

I'm planning on going full-blown CONORWINSLOL, but I still want a healthy title scene, so I'm probably booking him to be above it. I also signed Ronda Rousey to serve a similar role in the Women's Division, but as more of an occasional, special attraction. BNB is my top heel and eventual inaugural champion, and he's the leader/mouthpiece of a stable consisting of himself, Ryback, and Swagger.

Not far enough from the database start point to have a crazy AI Wrestlemania yet. (10 months into WCW Lives.) If the undercard is a bit eccentric, the story of babyface Undertaker overcoming the odds at least sounds like something that the Fed would do.

All workers suffer a penalty to their matches and angles if they have poor morale. They will also suffer for a bad locker-room atmosphere, even if they're the ones causing it.

And if you send someone drunk or high out to the ring (whether you know they're drunk/high or not), the person or persons who have to work with them are going to be fucking pissed, upset that they could have been injured by the drunk/high person.

A guy like Scott Hall is functional unusable in many mods unless you rehab him, because otherwise he'll keep showing up drunk and smashing the atmosphere of the lockerroom.

Also with the default data arieal skills aren't very effective meaning I can't seem to get good matches out of the crusierweights. If I bumped Lucha up to medium or whatever would it fuck with everything else?

"Modern" tends to cover high flying, as does the Daredevil slider. Lucha does as well, but Lucha skews towards more traditional products, so don't pump up Lucha if you want to be edgy.

Cult will also make you more edgy and give you a rowdiest audience, but can spook advertisers as well as make channels not as keen to put you in prime time slots. Note that rowdier crowds will shit on wrestlers they just don't think have the skills to be there. Guys who have great star quality and high charisma are hugely valuable in TEW terms, as they're the most likely to get over especially in Popularity based promotions, but if they can't wrestle worth a lick crowds at cult heavy promotions will turn against them.

The Risque slider is another one denoting how "edgy" your show is. The more risque the show, the more "adult" in tone it is ie cruder jokes and language, more referencing of off limits topics like sex. Again, raising this will excite 18 to 30 year olds but shake the faith of your TV stations. However, since WWE basically has it's own distribution network in the WWE Network, this is not the barrier it once was.

One other "edgy" slider is the T&A setting. This controls basically how the women present themselves, with a "none" setting being completely respectable attire, with high being scandalous. The high you pump this, the more hot females the audience will want on the show. "Hot" in TEW terms I believe is B or higher sex appeal, which personally I think is very demanding. I'd more in favour of C+ and up. But anyway, the female wrestlers do not have to fill these roles. Female managers/valets can fill the required slots as well. So for example having 3 or so Maryse type women around will fulfil your audiences high T&A demands, and you can still have whoever you want in the womens' division, "hot" or not.

OK thank you that all makes sense! I only wanted my edginess to be at a medium and the same with Lucha because that meant aerial skills will be more effective, without needing to increasing my match danger to 40% like I would if I bumped up modern. I'm not worried about the risk of injury, it's just whenever I've meddled with these things in the past, there was a divide between the fans and they either found the matches too hard hitting or not enough.

Just one more thing, when I bump 'Modern' up to medium it says wrestlers will be rated equally on performance and popularity, does this mean I'll really struggle to get someone like Fandango over for example, if I only really use him in matches because his skill set isn't the best?

  1. the skills wrestlers use aren't that affected by the product definition unless it explicitly says something is less effective in the analysis screen

2. fans shitting on the product not being intense or dangerous enough is probably because you didn't do a data check and adjust the sliders to the right % before you started playing

3. shitty wrestlers can do just fine is a performance over pop company, their issue is going to be in 1v1 matches. putting them in matches with more people (or people with really fucking high psychology a la bret hart having to work with yokozuna) can save them from having a match that shits the bed. in angles, they're going to be using high menace, entertainment, selling, etc skills in angles, and getting higher ratings to start than they would if they were in pop>perf. all perf>pop and perf=pop means is that hulk hogan will be working harder in matches and angles and not relying solely on being a star collecting a paycheck.

4. why the fuck are asking these questions here and not the game's forums you fag

CZCW 2020

California Love Machine has been built up from midcarder of a regional CZCW to the top babyface of a cult CZCW. With two title reigns with the CZCW World Title. He's massively over in California, he's very much the Jerry Lawler of Cali. There's one guy he just can't beat, and thats Tommy Cornell, he's ended both of CLM's reigns.

Wold Hawkins was made Toxic in Dec18 after he was caught with prostitutes, and should be back in a couple months time.

NOTBW in Canada went out of business a couple years ago, all of their stars are only stars in Canada and not that popular in America, and CGC can't sign them to writtens... so the ageing but talented guys like Bloodstone are my dev trainers.

Insane storylines you've booked? I did one for Cornellverse's CGC in a save where I deliberately went crash TV with the booking:

>The DeColts become honorable buffoons, being constantly double-crossed and bamboozled by the heels although they always win the matches
>Ryan Powell is getting more frustrated with his inability to do anything in CGC, giving a reality subtext given his bio
>Skip Beau and Drake Young become co-commissioners after a battle royal
>Powell starts teaming up with the DeColts in an attempt to get his career up and running, it doesn't work out
>he cuts a worked shoot and even outright leaves the company, driving off in his car
>that night, Jack DeColt is defending his title against Joey Poison, Powell returns and swerves Jack, giving Poison the title, although Jack wins it back the next week

It was fun to book.

Nothing too insane really.

Had fun booking Devious Doctor Fangs (With Damian Dastardly as Dastardly Devious) capture and short reign with my midcard California title. He and Damian coming up from developmental and winning matches in increasingly devious and dastardly ways. It all came to a head when despite having the upper hand against Masked Cougar Fang and Damian set up a fake puppy shooting, Damian appearing on screen with Cougars Dog mid match, Damian puts it down, takes out a gun and shoots it, enraging Cougar who goes on to go ape shit on Fang with a chair as the ref lets it happen, Dastardly Devious had gone too far. Cougar went on to win the match and get the Cali title. Damian reveals it was a fake dog, Damian gets multiple chair shots for the trouble.

Other than that just a TCW invasion angle, I had a working agreement with TCW and loaned the guys I needed that were on written while I signed some PPA guys to short term contracts. Had a years worth of content with that.

As a general rule, product settings are there to provide different challenges for different companies. If we're talking strictly about the most advantageous settings, then high sponsorship income, low intensity & risk matches, and good access to TV are the best - all things you'll find on the PG end.

>>5739197
Some stats are weird (most notably, Jeff Jarrett's Star Quality is about half what it should be), but otherwise it's an interesting starting position. WCW ends up feeling a bit like TNA because of the talent locked up at the E, but you will have a shot at getting Goldberg back in 2002 and really taking it to McMahon.

O'Haire has enough Star Quality (79) to be a maybe.

I would ask him to bulk up and see how it goes. If he gets fat, just let his contract expire or bury him on TV until he asks for his release. If he goes up in size with more muscle mass, he could shoot up to the high 80s for SQ and be a prime candidate for your Main Event (for reference, CM Punk starts WCW Lives with just 86 SQ while Scott Steiner has 87). In my current game, he refused to change size so I sent him to Wildside to sharpen up his skills before getting a Tag Team push with Palumbo.

There are a number of guys in this situation at WCW to start off with, and you'll usually see one of them come right. For me it was Stasiak - although I had to use the Size Decrease option, he got the Yoga result and then bumped up to Muscular a couple of months later, producing the SQ changes you can see pictured. He also gained 5 Power and 11 Athleticism, which is a nice bonus for a guy who isn't that skilled in the ring. I currently have Stasiak attached to Kevin Nash in an attempt to rub some Charisma and Overness off, but even if his Charisma doesn't go much higher he's still got the makings of a Main Eventer.

Finally, regarding Cena, I wouldn't try pushing him from the start anyway. Although he's got a phenomenal look, he starts the scenario nowhere near ready and could do with at least six months in development to sort out his Performance skills, followed by some time as a dark match jobber to polish him up.

Good luck!

I wouldn't rush to a decision with either of them, but Ripped Palumbo is probably going to make it to your main event. It basically comes down to whether you want these guys to be at the top by 2002 or 2003: the 2002 target means training them as you push (putting them in the ring with the likes of Disco & Lance and in angles with the Charismatic old guard), the 2003 target means sending them to Wildside first, then building them up the roster. Either way, Halloween Havoc is a good time to do the breakup - that way you can resolve it at Starrcade.

>need a new star
If you need someone urgently, call RVD. Maybe sign him anyway, because he's got a lot to offer.

I'm thinking Palumbo and O'Haire will dominate the tag division until they lose the titles to Jindrak and Stasiak (Jindrak is a NBT, so he could probably work out for a 2003 target), O'Haire will turn heel by siding with Ric Flair, leading to him vs. Palumbo in a grudge match at Starrcade. Depending on how that works out, one or both of them could be slid into the main event picture.

Good call on RVD, I've signed him. With the main event scene, Luger (who I'll keep around because he's a good influence, unless I need to fire someone to make an example), DDP and Flair are all in heavy time decline, Sting seems to be in lesser time decline, while Steiner is fine so far. I'm thinking of having RVD get pushed strongly, he's going to feud with Bagwell over the US title, hold that for a few months then go into the World title picture. My hope is that Flair can help get O'Haire's entertainment skills up so he can cut decent promos.

I'll book 2-3 year reins in my SuperIndy in the Cornelleverse, which is basically just a Modern Puro Product w/ the Cult turned up. Trying to emulate that golden age ROH. Title hotshots are rare, and I try to save big moments, like "Someone beat their long time rival for the first time!" to be the big moment of multi-week tournaments and stuff.

When I'm booking Sports Entertainment-esque products, I generally swap the titles around as much as I need to to get my popularity/pushes right. Occasionally when someone is both really strong and really good I'll keep the title on them for a year, tops.

Sadly she's working for Vince. But that's OK, Paul Orndorff has been building another Wonder of the World.

Dalip Singh (Great Khali) has been in Development for the last year. He went down to Super Heavyweight with the Yoga result, pushing his SQ to 92. Last month he bounced back to Muscular and now has a perfect 100 Star Quality. His in-ring is average - 55 Brawling is as good as it gets - and isn't getting any better in development. On the bright side, his performance skills are already nearing acceptable, ranging from 49 in Selling up to 67 Consistency, and are still improving fairly quickly. I'm going to start putting him in dark matches to polish him up and search for a manager with great or excellent chemistry.

I'm also toying with a gimmick name for the guy. "Great Khali" was Singh's own idea but it's hard not to associate it with the WWE. If I was booking him in a Japanese fed, it would probably be TIGER. Maybe just "Tiger"?

Sound pretty cool. In my save (June 2002) Sting and Steiner headlined Starrcade but RVD has the belt now. I also have Flair building up a stable with Sting, Lex Luger, and C.W. Anderson to fight against The Four Horsemen: Jeff Jarrett, Shane Douglas, Samoa Joe, and Monty Brown after they threw him out of the stable he made famous.
Fair warning: Vampiro is not reliable due to drug and personality issues. You might be able to turn him into an acceptable citizen, but it's a lot of effort.

>>5740326
I'd have RVD fight Mike Awesome and put them in a Brawl-based match (or just use the Wild Brawl match aim). Lance is great but you'd be stuck with Regular matches, not letting either man really go to his strengths.

Enjoy Fit while he lasts, as age will come for that great man sooner rather than later.

Step 1: read through the Player's Handbook on "Booking Shows".
Step 2: right-size your expectations. You don't need show ratings in the 90s every week unless your promotion is gigantic. All you need to do is get a higher rating than your popularity.

Off the top of my head:
Battle Royal, Ladder, or Ultimate X. Have a heel authority present the belt to the Chosen One. Sign a champion from another promotion. Sign a former champion from another promotion and claim that they got screwed out of their title. Have a babyface authority take a fan vote on the two top contenders and do a babyface vs. babyface match for the belt, with a turn or other twist at least teased throughout. Sign a shooter and claim that they hold a title from outside wrestling. Have an arrogant heel make their own belt and establish it by a string of defences.

>>5740706 Yea, That picture put me off, maybe in WLW where they love their comedy he could get mega over and he would fit.. But I had to change him up, wanted a fresh guy in the top of card and wanted to use Gary's entertainment skills. That and I love the episode of The I.T. crowd where he pretends to be a Bastard to attract a women.

I'd love to do more with Sting, he's not totally ravaged from time decline yet unlike Flair, DDP and Luger, so I did have another idea: Sting vs. Flair's stable is one of my hottest storylines, so why not have Kanyon beat RVD for the World title and headline Starrcade 2001 against Sting for the belt? Booker vs. Steiner could easily be a big grudge match (one of the 'main events' as Vince would put it hah).

Do you think it'd still be worth pushing O'Haire? He's a Bulky Big Heavyweight now, but he got the drink note, so I'm worried he might become a liability. I have thought of giving him the US title in 2002 while Palumbo goes to the world title chase.

Vampiro... yeah, I worry about that. I've slated him with a feud against CM Punk, but I wonder how hard he'll take it given that he's going to do the job to Punk at Starrcade at least, if he gets there.

Sting's best match-ups in WCW Lives seem to be ring general types with strong selling. The best match I've gotten out of Steve was a Nitro main event, where he achieved a 99-rated match with Shane Douglas. Now, Kanyon is in that neighbourhood so if you get him over (and how over he can get varies from game to game) that'll be a really good match.

Fat O'Haire would still have 70 or so SQ, but he's neither a great talker nor a great wrestler. However, he does have a lot of tag experience with Palumbo and Jindrak. If you're going to break him away from Chuck, he might still be useful as Mark's tag team partner.

Vampiro does not like to do jobs, but if Punk is even slightly more over than him it shouldn't matter. If not, he'll expect Keep Strong and/or Protect. Incidentally, it looks like CM Punk starts WCW Lives with a gigantic soft drugs habit - this was one of the few things that I used the editor to modify!

A good way to check if a feud is worth doing is to "book" a match for TV with the finish you want to do and see how much the guy doing the job kicks up a stink.

This is vital against guys with creative control.

Yeah, Kanyon and Sting will be a great match. One thing though... I really want them to get at least an 90+ rated match, but every time I've tried to do Spectacle and Epic, I only get 82 to 88, no matter what database I use. How do you make the most of those match aims?

I'm also debating what to do with the US title, since I have plans to have Helms drop it to Kanyon, who'll lose it in a multi-man match (as to protect him). I've considered Jarrett or Rey to win.

I get the most out of those match aims by not using them.

Losing in a multi-man match doesn't actually protect guys. You need to use the "Keep Strong" note - "Protect" will work but it's really for helping limited guys put on solid matches. I generally use triple threats and the like when there's no good transitional champion available.

They're kinda dodgy, really. They just don't seem to work out as well as you'd want.

Right now I'm considering Jarrett vs. Dustin Rhodes for the US title at Starrcade, so I might have Jarrett win it in a triple threat match. My Starrcade card now looks to be:

>Kanyon (c) vs. Sting for the WCW World title
>Booker T vs. Scott Steiner in a no DQ match
>Rob Van Dam vs. Shane Douglas
>Jindrak & Stasiak (c) vs. The Insiders for the WCW Tag Team titles
>Jeff Jarrett (c) vs. Dustin Rhodes for the WCW United States title
>Rey Misterio Jr. (c) vs. Tajiri for the WCW Cruiserweight title

Does anyone have advice for road agents? Does pairing specific road agents with certain types of wrestlers/matches have a major impact? I want to avoid more incidents like pic related.

Your product isn't set to include women's wrestling, and you're putting on women's wrestling matches. That alone should be giving you big debuffs, nevermind the exhaustion and injuries.

TBH I was getting bad ratings even when I did hard-hitting serious match-ups between men. I did this to punish my audience for throwing a shit-fit when I gave them what they want.

IIRC, there's no bonuses or penalties for match types, but road agents with positive relationships with certain talent can plan out matches that further benefit them, and vice-versa for road agents with negative relationships.

Try booking a multi-man match with an opener, two of your main eventers, and an enhancement talent. Set the opener to beat the jobber and see what your top guys say.

That may not be the best path to success.

They're fine. Probably the best RW mod out there is Mammoth's 1970 mod because everything was done by one person for TEW 2016, rather than the cobbled-together and patched-up mods you see elsewhere. Unfortunately, I never saw any of the wrestling that it represents so I don't feel a connection to it.

Someone has promised to do the same "from scratch" routine with 1989 and I have high hopes - but it probably won't be out until 2020.

Sounds about right. Thinking of doing a 1995 save where I get Benoit, Jericho and Austin. Benoit will be pushed as DiBiase's big prospect, Austin under a toned down version of his ECW character although he'll go Stone Cold eventually, while Jericho will tag with some young guy... maybe Owen turns face and takes him under his wing so they can win tag gold ;_;.
