By my calculations it would have taken 19 matches to get the win rate up to 77%. Also, you should have told the booker to get rid of Cena since you were out of a job anyway, you might as well have taken him with you. You'd have booted 2 people out of the same fed in one night and it would have made turning up at wrestling school hilariously awkward with Cena there.

That green mist/light before the match with Miss Viola almost made me think it was going to be a poison gas match. Someone should suggest that to MDickie for the next game. "Federation Online have been branded unsafe workers after half of the audience was killed in that match!"

The severed hands of Liam Neeson and Radical "Scotbird" Larry are locked in an eternal struggle, both fated to never win. It is these titanic struggles that will one day unmake the universe, and it is this same struggles that will begin the great cycle again.

No offence Simosimo, but you were totally asking to lose that hand. You repeatedly talk about 'you don't want to do moves that throw you onto the ground over broken objects, because it hurts you too!' through the series... and then spend five minutes doing it repeatedly.


It was funny though.

I know but there's a 10% chance of a sweet spot where you land on the wrestler on the floor and you do not touch the weapons/debris. With Neeson being that guy on the floor, it's worth taking that chance!

Been meaning to catch up with this! When the blue gently caress did Larry get cornrows? What did you do to him in general, he looks like a greasy skeleton. RE : Your call for a second commentator, sounds like a drat good idea if you intend to continue Larry's wrasslin' career, I'd put myself forward but I'm a social autist - have you considered doing a stream? I'd say gather the Larry-ites over on Twitch, have some banter and then see if anyone in the chat fancies a go.

Also, I'd love to see a game of Total War, Civilization, some sort of RTS. You could show us Larry's horrible Mongol ancestors and how they laid waste to entire nations. Would be a good time! Dunno if strategy games are your thing but it'd make for a bit of fun.

When the booker decided it's the best fit for him!

I've thought about that stuff, but my recordings are so sparse and random. Having someone who would even be willing to do it, on call anytime is pretty much never going to happen without pre-planning. I'd probably need a UK based smark, unless a yank doesn't mind me quizzing them about inane poo poo and my stupid bullshit

Sometimes it's not the bomb that's retarded.

The win percentage seems like a crafty way to limit career length, as the more matches you play the harder it is to make the number go up.
Or it's just something stupid MD came up with and never tested properly.

This one's also impossible as it would require 20 matches in the 6 events allotted. In fact, increasing win rate by 5% in 6 events is nearly impossible after the first year of a career. EDIT: unless your win rate is low.

My guess is the win rate challenge was set like attribute challenges (i.e. add a few points) with no regard for how percentages work. I suppose it could have been originally a mistake and then deliberately left in.

If you'd never won a match, it'd be impossible to get to 5% in 6 weeks once you'd played at least 115 matches and if you're that terrible, you probably wouldn't have continued past your first year anyway.

The game rounds win rate to the nearest percent so it'd take 128 matches. Hopefully, it goes off of the rounded figure because you could otherwise have the game telling you that you've got the target and then you get fired anyway.

Oh god yes. If you didn't know, he has recently started playing WWE 2k14, using the storyline customizer to continue Bully Demise's strange tale. It is all kinds of weird and awesome, especially if you watched his other LPs.

EDIT: Forgot to watch last night's videos. Bully's journey is now over, though knowing SGF he may come back in some form later on.

This was a good episode.

- It starts with the protagonist having a cool new gimmick

- Best entrance ever: climbing up the turnbuckle before inexplicably jumping to the outside through what seemed to be a pane of glass.

- Larry is single-handedly responsible for kicking several people out of the fed.

- The booker was top rope hurricanrana-ed head-first onto the referee.

- Larry beat up a referee he actually liked for money (? I can't remember).

- Larry cost a guy his ear and his job and said guy's manager/tag team partner/guy in the ring for no reason tried to stab Larry with a screwdriver.

There was more interesting stuff going on here than I've seen in two in-game years of WWE2k14's universe ( though I think my universe might be broken).

Also, is it possible to kill the referee?

Assuming the game goes off the rounded figure for win rate (which seems to be rounded according to normal rules), and given that Larry apparently has 33 losses, it would take a total of 154 matches to get a win rate of 79%. I think he had 127 matches when he was given the challenge so he'd have to win 27 matches in 5 events.

And is it me or was Matt Hardy just standing there during 1 or 2 of the backstage matches?
