Why do I get penalised so heavily in the overall show rating?


Recommended Posts

Here is the overall score http://jettmedia.com/images/932010_05_24_221830.png

 

and here is the full match card http://jettmedia.com/images/782010_05_24_221822.png

 

Main Event=95

Semi main event = 95

Av of all other matches = 71

Av of all matches(including the Main event and semi main event) =77.8

Av of all angles =87.5

 

Perfect Show theory turned on

Booked all matches that were promised in the Advance Bookings

Lost a National Battle recently

Followed the 70:30 ratio of Matches : Angles

 

 

So 70% of 95=66.5

20% of 95 = 19

10% of 71 = 7.1

 

Therefore total score should be 92.6.

So why did I incur a penalty of 6.6 ratings?

 

 

 

I am constantly getting penalties of 5-6 rating points. Don't understand why?I know I didn't follow the Perfect show theory but that single handedly won't cost me 6 rating points would it?

 

Help!!!

Your Openers look a bit low, and the Opener is an important part of the final grade. I don't know the percentage, but after the Main & Semi-Main it's the most important match.

 

Really?! REALLY!?! (Just doing the Miz-thing here :p) Truly I believe that is something some of the board members have came up themselves with no evidence.

 

My guess is that your semi main-event got bit higher grade than your main event. Was there any negative notes after the show? Those also drop the overall grade easily

The undercard makes up 10% of the final rating. You always want your opening match to be a good one. Why? Because you want to get the crowd hot and set a precedent, "this show is going to be good." So I don't think it's been made up. :p

This actually disappoints me because that's how I've booked my shows for the longest time. The shows I put on work well with that technique, so I guess I'll stick to it.

 

Ditto. I've developed certain 'rules' for booking shows over the years, less to do with TEW mechanics and mathematics and more to do with what I like to see on wrestling shows. Put an angle between every match. Never have more than one tag match. Start with a strong opening match.

 

Worked well for me thus far, so no point changing it now.

Just to add to the original question, the average of all your major angles that are 4 minutes or more is calculated, and compared to the weighted rating of the matches. If the angles are better than the matches, you get a bonus, based on you big the difference is; if they are worse, then you get a similar penalty. By your own calculations (which I assume are correct, but am too lazy to verify), your angles were 5.1% lower than your matches.

 

That, coupled with your semi-main likely being microscopically better than your main event (which causes a penalty), results in penalties that can account for that kind of drop. If your semi-main had been a 94, you probably would have gotten a point or two higher final grade.

 

As was mentioned, that card looks slammin'. I would definitely drop the bucks for that show.

Well the actual reason why people think why it affects to the show rating is that it actually does. But not in the way you think it does. Let me explain;

 

If you start your show with a lackluster match, and have no hot angles, the crowd is going to be bored etc. So that affects whatever you put out next, because the crowd 'was not hot' (or whatever it is it says in the game.)

I think the "opener has to be really good" thing is the result of confusion more than anything.

 

Yeah, it should probably be good because you want to get the crowd's mood up, but it doesn't in and of itself have any greater effect on the overall rating than any other match in the undercard.

 

Edit: Yeah, what Snoopy said ¬_¬ I got distracted by Assassin's Creed before clicking post. :p

<p>This opening thing is really getting me confused..Looks like everyone here is confused about the 'opening match has to be the 3rd best match' theory.</p><p> </p><p> The only reason I don't like to put on the very good opening show is coz then the next match has a note saying 'This segment fell flat after the previous one'.

Not sure why it's as low as it is, I woulda thought it shoud be higher. Obvious questions to ask... are you being told you are over-using people a lot? Are you getting messages at the end of the show saying anything at all, really?</p><p> </p><p> As for the opening match... it has an equal rating with all the other matches that count towards the 10% of the show outside of the main matches. BUT it does have a significant influence on your TV ratings. People will tune in and stay tuned in to a show with a hot opening match. This is what people are getting confused with a lot now. <img alt=":)" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/smile.png.142cfa0a1cd2925c0463c1d00f499df2.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png"></p>

You make the opener good for perfect show theory, also good TV ratings. You get your crowd hot with a good opening match and your TV audience is more likely to stay tuned it. Then you valley and peak go down and then have another decent match in the middle and then go down again and for the last two match with semi-main event being the second best and Main Event being best. I've run shows where I got a B+ man event and a B or B- Semi-Main Event but because the show had the right flow I've still managed to get a B+ show. Usually I;ll get a show rated one rating lower than the main event.

<p>Also I have noticed that major angles in post and pre show that are over the length limit do weigh in on the average angle number. Try running that show again and have those low rated training angles set as minor. Think it will help.</p><p> </p><p>

Also with perfect show theory turned on the peak and valley system becomes more important and you have disregarded that here slightly, just some slight adjustments in order could work wonders.</p>

Some of these aren't easily detectible.</p>

That's not how the WWE books their shows. They always start the show with either a hot angle, hot match, or both. Whether it's Bret & Shawn burying the hatchet, or a match like Batista vs. Daniel Bryan, they always pop the crowd, at the very beginning. As well, on they're A shows, they always put on a good match at the 1 hour mark, so that they can catch people that are channel surfing.</p><p> </p><p> 2.) What you have listed here is exactly how you should book your shows if you have Perfect Show Theory turned OFF. Turn that off, and you'll instantly get better results.</p>

That's not even close to the order they went in. Not only was the battle royal on the pre-show, but they started off with the Tag Title match, which was a decent tilt (although too short). The divas, as they usually are, were in the cool-down slot, before the main events. In fact, they are usually the only divergence from Perfect Show Theory, as it works in-game, because the divas sometimes go on in the Semi-Main (like they did this Sunday), instead of the third-last match, which is where you'd want them in TEW.</p><p> </p><p> Regardless of how WWE does it's shows, though, in TEW terms, the way you book works best when "Perfect Show Theory" is turned off. Do that, and you'll see (slightly) better results.</p>
