Just saw an interesting 2K18 glitch on nL's universe stream. Becky Lynch beat Carmella then after the match Carmella got attacked by a ghost and Becky ran said ghost off.

It's .... it's certainly something that happened.

This is what I meant by randomized earlier. Destiny is a game feature and is always turned on, full stop. However, if you look at an individual worker in a database, you can see where they have an actual starting potential rating that can be set to none, low, medium, or high, and it has an effect on variance of their stats/caps as separate from the hidden "destiny" modifier.

Yeah, I checked their 'potential' settings, of the ones I checked, they were all set to 'random'.
I just never quite got how 'Destiny' was different than 'potential' mechanically speaking.

Edit: La Parka and Terry Funk have great chemistry as a tag team. This makes me very happy.
Also Rey Mysterio Jr. and Dave Taylor, but that's more of a curiosity.

Potential is about the degree to which their skills can improve, whereas destiny is about what the “floor” of their popularity is, iirc. That is, a character with high destiny will reach a high overness and stay there even when they’re not given a Hogan “win every match” push (or are out, as with injury or taking time off). I think you can still bury them but they’ll recover more easily.

As I understand it, the way you determine destiny is the Next Big Thing tab in fed overview. There’s a post on the TEW forums that goes over how to read those tea leaves (I think the game will only evaluate workers with midcard pushes and below)but I can’t remember where it is. All I remember is that “born to be the face of a company” indicates 90+ destiny. Those are the guys you want to build up to the high card.

Yeah I've read and utilized that post extensively. I just figured that was part of potential.

I thought that was loving hilarious. Watching them break 2K18 has certainly been more entertaining than playing that pile of garbage would've been.

almost as great was SURPRISE BRIAN KENDRICK on the SD episode afterward

The recent 2k games are a sizable improvement over past years in all but one thing, they are still not very fun to play at all.

The loading times alone have reached Sonic '06 proportions. Like I'd honestly put up with a lot of this poo poo more easily if every single thing didn't require a progress bar.

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.

So that WCW 2000 game probably just torpedoed.
Long story short: TNT and TBS won't negotiate with me, but because I'm under the Time Warner Media Group I can't negotiate with anybody with conflicting coverage.
Now I can edit things so TNT and TBS will negotiate but even then neither does PPVs and I can't negotiate with a PPV broadcaster in any region with conflicting coverage.
My lone option here seems to be to rewrite TNT and TBS to cover nowhere then make deals with other networks.

Or I can play the more polished WCW Lives mod, which is actually designed for TEW 2016 and is a better mod overall.
Torpedoes my plans of counter-programing WM 17 with La Parka winning the world title though.
