How do you guys get years into a TEW game? Do you let the AI handle some of the booking?

I wish there was a mode where you could be the owner, picking who to push and handling the roster but not booking every single angle.

On another note, I'm on the cusp of getting the Supercard ladder reward of a female card at your current rarity. I'm going to hold off playing until I get my next Hardened log in reward, hopefully that pushes me over to Summerslam

I only do 5 shows a month (one TV show, one PPV) and as I said I usually just have one or two storylines and the rest of my angles are just "some main eventer cuts a promo for 10 minutes"

Most of my TV shows are just promo - short match - short match - promo - long match - long match so it only takes a couple of minutes to book.

In the past I tried a game with two weekly shows and a huge roster (basically WWE) and I got sick of it after like 3 months of game time

The only way I can get that far is if I autobook most of my shows, the only ones I book manually at that level is PPV's.
Though I end up usually modifying the autobooked show a lot since they like to do some really bizarre things.

Yeah maybe I'll give that a shot. I can never get past 2 years or so

I usually get bored or distracted from my games after a few months but my current game has been sticking with me for quite a while.

Just edit the poo poo out of your database before you start, that's my advice. Make everything the way you want it to be. Make Raw 2 or even 1 hour long. Get rid of Smackdown and your B shows entirely.

When I started, I edited it to give myself one 1.5 hour long A show and eventually added an hour long B show where I'll usually just take a minute to edit the auto booker's work.

I started giving Ronda Rousey the super(wo)man push back when she was still unstoppable in UFC, so I figured I might as well have the payoff and make her champ since the myth never died in my reality. I've also gotten lazy and just had a bunch of "4 guys give a promo" angles when I'm not building real storylines. Easy A* rating and it gets my top guys on shows. Adam Cole has remained the most over person in the world while battling his stomach cancer thanks to regular A* promos. Michigan's Least Wanted are a couple of guys the game created from my dojo, but otherwise I've struggled to develop young guys who can go in the ring with the now aging veterans. That will be the big challenge moving into the future.

That's a boss show. I like your Rousey booking and that Steen/Styles tag combo. Random promos are the best - I use freestyle angle so much.

One of the reasons my TEW games have burned out is because I refuse to let go of my 'B' shows.
One of my goals is to nurture my young talent so giving them their B show reps is necessary.

I don't mind a 60 min B show. I just turn off the rule that makes you use angles, and book a handful of matches for the dudes I want to build up

This would probably be a good idea for me, I just don't want to do it But on the other hand only having two or three good workers under the age of 35 is going to become a problem soon

So, how's 2K17 vs. 2K16 since we've had time to take it in? I'm tempted to buy it on PC, but it's cheaper on PS4...and I've got a Pro + 4K on there. I figure there's more of a CAW community on PS4, but...mods and stuff..

Granted, I already know what I'm gonna end up doing. What do I ever year the past 2-3 years. Get the game. Spend 30+ hours setting up the perfect Universe with 100 CAWs + endless PC mods so I end up having 400 wrestlers on the drat game like it's Fire Pro or something. Set up all the arenas and brands.

And then not play it.

It's a viscous cycle.

I haven't seen mods, but someone released Sound Editor which allows you to inject music into the game; in addition to the usual wrestler themes. I put in the Nitro and Thunder themes which makes Universe mode kind of fun since the show loading animations and intro pyros line up really well with the real show music.

Huh, anyone else have the issue with Champions where if you get two packs for a superstar unlock, it gives you a dupe on the second pack open? I got two Dolphs from getting pack unlocks through playing, and then today decided to pay some cash and got two nevilles. I can't get mad about it though, because it is basically a slot machine hidden in a rigged puzzle game, and I'm a dipshit for giving it money.

The 2k17 HOF Showcase is out and the commentary for the showcase matches is already AMAZING. They not only have Cole and King standing in for every announce team involved, but I just started the Sting/Flair Clash match and they're loving shilling for Mania IV! That's revisionism on a staggering level.

Maaaan the Hall of Fame DLC for 2K17 is something else. There's multiple times where Lawler and Cole shill Wrestlemania as a bigger event during matches that'd happen in WCW and WCCW. Like sure the commentator would be putting over how WCCW talent like King Kong Bundy is going to be on Wrestlemania 2 in the main event. They also completely ignore Terry Gordy in the Freebirds saying the original three included Jimmy Garvin. Ric Flair and Big Show they just slapped wigs on. Surprisingly the new DDP DLC character looks better than the one already in the game. They also completely make up poo poo for the Boss Man vs. Big Show match telling you to hit the Boss Man Slam on Show, which never happened. They also reuse the 80s Boss Man model so he's really fat and has a full head of hair wearing a swat vest.

HOW

I remember my mind being blown when I found out a flub like this ended up in Oblivion, but Oblivion has thousands of recorded lines of situational dialogue, so an oversight, even one that egregious, is understandable. The WWE games have so little voice acting that you'll hear the very next thing in that video, Cole saying "I've never seen him do that before", a dozen times in any given hour of gameplay.

The gimmick in the Shango/Godfather match is also very un-fun. (Shango's taunts give you the yellow-reversal debuff that blocks your reversals, because VOOOODOOOOO)

I'm not even sure why I care what rating the B show gets.
I could probably just not change the rules, run a show with no angles, get a 43 or something and just be 'meh, doesn't affect anything'
And yet I just can't.
