I just signed Wolf Hawkins to NYCW


Recommended Posts

:eek: :eek: :eek:

 

This has been a crazy game. I picked up Peter Valentine before him, but SWF just took him because they went global, along with Eddie Peak and a few others from DAVE. Before him I had Fumihiro, Grandmaster and American Buffalo as my top three guys, and I managed to get to Television within 7 months thanks to sponsor money and a riskly weekly show format along with PPVs. :eek:

Wow

And now SWF took him after dropping Warlord Pain. :( I need some more big names to keep the rising ratings. But still, he had a good run with us, holding the NYCW Empire Championship twice before dropping it to Joey Minnesota by a booking accident and just now dropping it to Phunk, who he originally took it off of. Plenty of B- matches between them and between Fumihiro Ota and Travis Century got me this far.

 

Other strange events include Captain America holding both single championships of the USPW, with Redwood doing the booking.

 

Edit: Never mind, Redwood just won the World title.

 

Edit2: And now they dropped Warlord Agony and made an offer to Phunk.

 

Edit: I lost Billy Russel and Joey Minnesota to CZCW. :( Picked up the Warlords to make up for it.

That's pretty cool. I still have Ota in my version of NYCW (now called New Wrestling, just turned global). He's been with us for a few years now. I made a few major signings when we were cult level, made some guys into stars and then SWF and TCW stole them. It was right before we made International status (skipped past National thanks to our shows being broadcast in Canada) too which pissed me off because if they'd waited a week, I could have signed them to written contracts. I had A/A* rated shows and PPVs all throughout 2010, but when we hit National towards the end of the year, I got raided and I didn't play for a few weeks because they'd gutted stars I'd spent year(s) building up and I thought I was screwed because no one of any real value was out there to sign.

 

But then I did a brand split, I made Teddy Powell into a fairly popular star, Billy Russell got insanely over and Puerto Rican Power got over once he turned on Billy Russell (they used to tag as The Puerto Rican Connection) and they had a match on our secondary show. Hell's Bouncer is getting over, Matt Sparrow, like Powell, is capped at B+ popularity in the U.S., but has still managed to help keep us afloat. Ota's main eventing but he's capped at B+ also, and I managed to snag Acid from NOTBW when his contract expired. Alas, he's also got a cap of B+.

 

TCW and SWF are holding all of the cards, so to speak, with tons of A/A*-rated stars (popularity), many of whom made their names in NYCW. I've got a bunch of younger guys in RCAW (development) and once John Morgan rehabs his nerve damage, I should be able to get him back to the the star he was in 2010 (he was having A/A* matches every night). Now, thanks to resourceful booking, I've managed to attain Global status only five months into the new year and right on the eve of our main PPV, Amalgamation VI. Our prestige is up to 100% now, we will have two live shows and one taped show after this month and I have ever intention of raiding everything TCW's got as soon as some contracts expire. We're making over a million dollars a month now. So after a rough start to the year, we're starting to shape up.

 

Plus I still have some older guys I can push to A popularity if I really wanted to, but some of them could retire any month now. Demon Anger, Pistol Pete Hall and a few others are pushing 50, but over the next few months, I'll probably try to use them to put over some of the younger guys while I still can. I have a few guys still in the midcard and lower midcard with some decent star quality and looks that I'm about to push and I just got back Champagne Lover from DAVE so hopefully that all pans out.

Sweet. THat's pretty good work, man. I unfortunelty acted very foolishly and declared a war with CZCW, who took two of my bigger names. :o

Oh I'm not going to war with anyone anytime in the near future lol. SWF and TCW both have bigger names than I do, although after this month, I have two shows on a larger network than TCW, so I'm not too worried about them. I kind of want to start a diary since I've been on this game for months now, but I don't know how well it'll work out since I'd be starting so late in the game.

 

I have a non-agression pact with TCW because I was afraid they were going to continue to raid my talent, but now that we're all at the same size, eventually that'll come to an end one way or the other :D. Besides, they have talent I could probably get away with signing if I didn't have that blasted pact with them :mad:. I'm at 100% prestiege now, so I think the second half of 2011 is going to be a very fun time for me. No one's stealing so much as an enhancement talent from me unless I mess up and get knocked back down to National. I can usually pump out an A or A* main event for each brand's show and as long as I have one or too B or B+ upper card matches, which is also do-able, I'm back to B+/A shows every week. I was worried at the start of the year because after TCW's last raid of my talent, I was getting B- shows every week and I was loosing popularity. All I need is to push some more of my younger guys and to do a little talent raiding of my own in the upcoming months and I should be golden. By 2012 I should be able to compete all out with TCW and SWF. It's very satisfying after all of that hard work starting out with little ol' NYCW in 2005. I almost gave up a few times over the "years," but it's all paying off now. The women's division is kind of dragging me down though, which is a shame. Wanda Fish is the only one worth diddly squat.

 

Now if I could just get some managers and Authority Figures, I could really have some fun lol.

100% prestige? What the hell? :eek:

 

And yeah, I just got a secondary show to exclusively show off the tag team division. Should get chemistry rising pretty quickly. :cool:

 

As for show-wise, I've got a decent mix for B- shows on a regular basis if I pace them a bit. And Wanda Fish is a god-send. SWF wouldn't steal her for the world, which makes her my go to girl. :D

Sweet. I booked my promotion's main PPV to near-perfection. First A* show of the year! Just thought I'd share.

 

http://img541.imageshack.us/img541/7039/amaiv.jpg

 

I was hoping for another A out of Ota vs. Braun, but I had already had them face-off at the past three PPV's (every time was an A rated match) so I figured I was kind of pushing it lol. McWade/Anger was a bit of a letdown too since I also got some A-rated matches out of them, but I overdid it again. Problem was that these were the highest rated storylines I had at the time. Still-- best buy rate of the year. My PPV deal is up though so I'm hoping to get a larger provider this time, but several of the bigger providers have no coverage in Canada :(

 

Ended my non aggression deal with TCW. I've already signed two of their workers :)

 

My advice to anyone: If Billy Russell ever becomes available in your game, break the bank to sign him. He has pretty much single-handedly saved NYCW for me lol.

Hehe Dave got destroyed talent-wise months ago for me. NYCW (me) and DAVE were both at about the same level of popularity for a while, but I kept pumping out A and A* shows thanks to John (JD) Morgan and other good talent I had before SWF and TCW raided my roster. TCW went International and I'm International now as well, so DAVE has gotten hit pretty hard. They've gone from B and B- shows to barely being able to make C+.

 

lol, I guess it wasn't necessary for me to sign what little talent they had left, but I hired a lot of young stars for developmental deals and as it stands now, DAVE is pretty much a second developmental territory for me. They have a TV deal and they have Nemesis booking so they're still able to slowly generate stars, which I then steal :D

 

Now I'm at war with TCW since my roster is back in decent shape and I'm ripping their roster to bits. This past week I was able to snag Tana the Mighty and Jim Force who are both at A popularity in the US. Hell's Bouncer is finally at A popularity all-round in the states, Puerto Rican Power is actually at A*, Russell is at A (for some reason I can't get him over in the damned Great Lakes reigon), McWade's only a B+ in the US, but is an A all-round in Canada and I finally was able to push Guide to A popularity in the states too, so things are going fairly well.

 

I made the mistake of adding a third show. I run two brands and I wanted to run something like a combined version of Heat and Velocity with stars from both brands, but it's only an hour and it's pissing off a lot of my guys because I can't possibly fit them all on the card. Luckily, I only have a contract for one season, but it's on MTV (imported from a real world database) which is one of the largest networks in the game, so I don't really want to loose that timeslot.

 

It's funny that you mention you had PRP and Billy Russell tag together because I actually did the same thing. They used to be called the Puerto Rican Connection, and now they're against each other in the promotion's main feud for the title. The feud is currently at A* heat :D

 

I'm just trying to think of a fun way to debut my new TCW signees. Also, I'm a bit ticked that Remmy Skye's popularity cap is apparently at C- and he still has a long ways to go in his contract. I wasted too much time trying to push him and I may have to bite the bullet and terminate his contract early.

 

TCW can't compete with me. SWF is pretty safe, but the big threat right now is actually NOTBW which is more popular than any of us right now with B+ all-round in the US and in Canada. Their buyrates for their PPV's are unreal and the industry and economy aren't helping me out much. By 2012 (in-game) I think I'll have a real shot at taking SWF down a notch. I've got to keep pushing my young guys though because a few of my guys (Alex Braun, Demon Anger, Pistol Pete Hall, Robert Oxford, and Whistler) are 49 now and retirement's right around the corner. That's probably the only thing that can really screw me now besides worrying about beating SWF to the punch when it comes time to renew contracts.

Sweet. I've got Eric Tyler, McClean, Scout, Insane Machine (somehow), Art Reed and Frankie Perez.

I had two shows, but I let one die to bad ratings and the other one is a 1 and 1/2 show in Canada, UK, and the US. Just added a new team of Jack Gierodyc and Jeff Nova as the British Bulldogs.

Russell left for CZCW when I declared war on them, and Puerto Rican Power's price was too high for me, so I dumped his ass. Just picked up Billy Russel up again, he's a midcarder heel. :D

I'm worried more about NOTBPW. They've gotten 40s in all of the US and are running shows here, so I'm uneasily awaiting an International rise and them stealing from USPW and DAVE, but I have a non-aggression contract with them. So they'll lose the rest of their wrestlers not contracted with me, meaning that they'll just higher more of my people. Which will be annoying, since we've basically become one promotion with two different brands due to the high number of shared wrestlers. :rolleyes: I'm thinking of rebuilding the entire world into a new database with DAVE as one brand and NYCW into another brand. Especially since I renamed the promotion to WCW. :D

Request negotiations with your stars and try to give them a raise. If you can renegotiate their contracts before they talk to NOTBW, they won't be able to steal them. It's like when you try to sign someone right after they sign with someone else and you get an e-mail saying negotiations fell through because they just signed with whatever promotion.

 

Doesn't work sometimes, but it's worth a shot.

I'm not worried from NOTBPW doing thefts, I've got a non-agression pact I've got with them from 2005. I'm annoyed by DAVE and USPW, who are going to get stolen from their wrestlers that I don't share, and will consquently hire on the entire rest of my roster to make up for it. :rolleyes:

Ah lol

 

Just signed Byan Vessy and Hooded Kudo :D. Also after a disappointing PPV (in quality, not buyrates :D) I had two A rated shows this week :D TCW's starting to have to sign a bunch of jobbers from DAVE (whom I've already raided)

 

w00t

 

Bryan and Kudo. Damn. That's just excellently done. I'm still dealing with Insane, Tyler, Ota, Reed and McClean. Might job out Tyler for a while before firing him and raise up Perez or Monkey up.

****ing Jeff Nova. Think you can make more money elsewhere, after I build you and Jack Gierodyc as my next big face tag team? After I fired Mr. America to keep you happy? I think not! Welcome to Burial-city, bastard! :mad:

 

*sigh* And just when I'm about to do a new brand-split, he decides to try this... I might have to call back Puerto Rican Patriot to team up with Billy Russell to get a keep a good tag-team division in order.

 

--

 

Edit: Well, I've just left the promotion I've spent nearly 4 years with to pursue other options. Those other options of course being TCW. :D I think between a TCW game spinned off from this one, a saved game where I haven't left yet and a planned watcher's timeline, I'll be very occupied with TEW 2005...

<p>'05 is very addictive once you get into your pomotion's rhythm. I'm still with NYCW (nW in my game). I was able to get rid of my third show which was bombing badly and I spent $600,000 this month (Oct '11) firing wrestlers with low popularity caps. Mainstream Hernandez and Jacob Jett both were painful losses because I've had them both signed for a number of years now but they're capped at C+ and I was like 10-15 wrestlers over the recommended amounts after a bunch of blockbuster signings.</p><p> </p><p>

Hooded Kudo now has A popularity in all areas of three game areas (US, Canada, Japan). Vessey has kind of been a disappointment because I keep getting B rated matches with him. Maybe it's due to him being strong style, but he's certainly not that A-A* wrestler he was in PHGW. I put the strap on him after Russell had a ten month reign thinking he'd be able to have decent matches with anyone, but to date he's been bombing when I put him in the Main Event with anyone but Billy Russell. All of my main eventers are at A popularity in the US except for Jim Force, who I got from TCW, but hasn't recovered since I jobbed him to Rhino Umaga, who just broke into the main event the last show. Dallas McWade is now at A rated popularity in both the U.S. and Canada. I have so many popular wrestlers now that Pistol Pete Hall is stuck in the upper midcard despite being rated A in popularity across the country. Hooded Kudo is still stuck in the midcard too somehow, even though he's madly popular in three different markets.</p><p> </p><p>

Business is good. I have 41 million dollars (which is not bad for NYCW), my Wednesday night show is the second-highest rated wrestling show in my game other than NOTBW who is kicking all of the American promotion's asses, even though I consistently produce better cards (B+ and A). I haven't even had a B rated card in like two months, but I still need another five percent of popularity across the US to at least be able to pull the attendance and buy rates that NOTBW does in my own home country. Which is kind of messed up.</p><p> </p><p>

My announcing team (Herb Stately, Mitch Naess, and Ana Garcia) keeps failing to announce some of my A rated matches at the same quality they deserve, but I don't know when I'll be able to remedy that. Captain USA was my other announcer, but he had a C- popularity cap so I got rid of him.</p><p> </p><p>

Monday Night Vehemence is my next card. Got a PPV in two weeks. I'll let you know how it goes.</p>

I generally don't like to fire people unless I have to, but I've gotten quite a few enemies from this game through firings...

I have so many popular wrestlers now that Pistol Pete Hall is stuck in the upper midcard despite being rated A in popularity across the country. Hooded Kudo is still stuck in the midcard too somehow, even though he's madly popular in three different markets.
Hate you so much. I need more popular talent. CGC, DAVE, USPW and MAW are sharing everyone I've got my eyes on, and I can't seem to be able to sign them because they have too many contracts. ****ers, I'm giving you one goddamn contract! Asses.

 

Business is good. I have 41 million dollars (which is not bad for NYCW), my Wednesday night show is the second-highest rated wrestling show in my game other than NOTBW who is kicking all of the American promotion's asses, even though I consistently produce better cards (B+ and A). I haven't even had a B rated card in like two months, but I still need another five percent of popularity across the US to at least be able to pull the attendance and buy rates that NOTBW does in my own home country. Which is kind of messed up.
NOTBPW is also giving me trouble with their superior cards, though SWF and TCW are still holding their own quite well.

 

My announcing team (Herb Stately, Mitch Naess, and Ana Garcia) keeps failing to announce some of my A rated matches at the same quality they deserve, but I don't know when I'll be able to remedy that. Captain USA was my other announcer, but he had a C- popularity cap so I got rid of him.
Captain USA actually died in mine from a drug overdose. I've got Ana Garcia, Rock Downpour, Laura Funk and Lee Bambino (Last two were randoms and a character imported from '10)

 

Monday Night Vehemence is my next card. Got a PPV in two weeks. I'll let you know how it goes.

 

Nice update, man. :eek:

 

I returned to the NYCW in my watcher's game after Deano Machino, the world's greatest **** defenestrated my women's single and tag divisions, as well as my male tag-team division. He fired all but three women's wrestlers, leaving only the ones holding the gold, and brought in a bunch of older wrestlers like Vessey and Wolverine after firing half of three different male tag-teams, which was half my male tag-team division, as well as much of my younger undercard. He took it to International and then Global before dropping it back down to Cult in a matter of weeks.

 

While that happened, I booked the beginning of Exodus USA with Jeff Nova being my boss (totally went what the **** when that happened), with a recruitment of a lot of the talent that got fired from NYCW to give it a steady base of talent, with an all-female main-event (Cherry Bomb, Michelle Brendon, both members of Wild Times). Exodus had a decent tag-team base of 2 A* teams, 1 C+ and 3 F.

 

When I got back to NYCW, I hired as many wrestlers who were let go as I could, releasing all the ****s Deano hired (Wolverine, Vessey, Alysian Scottfield, Deano Machino, etc...) and set about rebuilding my tag-team divisions. The women's single division on the other hand, had to get a retirement, possibly for good. Most of my women's wrestlers were tag-teamers primarily, minus Black Widow and Cherry Bomb, and well... twin tag-team divisions were better than a tag-team division and an over-expanded women's single division.

 

But I got into a bit of a problem when I got an excellent 2-hour slot on Monday, which was right before my 1-hour slot on Monday on another network... which refuses to cancel it, and I don't want the damn slot now... :(

My NYCW (nW) is Sports Entertainment, so maybe that's the difference (switched styles early in the game), but Wolverine actually put out some decent matches since I've had him. He tagged with Whistler and had a stable with Wanda Fish (called WWW) and has been a fairly consistent upper midcard. Vessey, however, I'm finding extremely difficult to book, but he's very over (all A's in USA and Japan. It was odd because he was B- when I signed him but magically went up to A after a B- dark match against Rhino Umaga). I know he lacks charisma but so does Billy Russell, and he's my most over star. Vessey is especially frustrating since he has A's in almost all wrestling-related and performance skills but I've only gotten a few A rated matches out of him since I got him. I double checked, and he's not strong style, so I'm further baffled.

 

Are both of those shows live? If at least one is taped, you can reschedule the taping date, but it will lower your highest potential for ratings. If not, try to cancel the deal for one of them.

 

Vehemence (Monday), and Action (Wednesday) both got A ratings which makes three A-rated TV shows in a row for me. Can't wait until my deal is up for Vehemence -- they're both decent timeslots, but Vehemence is on the same day as NOTBW Smash and it's killing me in the ratings, even with lesser quality shows. Plus, since I signed that deal for Vehemence, I got popular enough to get a slot on a Very Big network, which is what Action is on (ABC -- imported from a real world mod).

 

To put that into perspective, both of my shows last week got A ratings, but Vehemence got a 1.3 rating and Action consistently gets 2.0 or better. It's the best wrestling show on Wednesdays, but there's some non-wrestling show inching me out for the top spot overall by like 300,000 viewers :(

Oh, he's had good matches, I just don't like Wolverine. :p Same for Vessey. Billy Russell is a competent young wrestler and half of a tag-team, so he stays. Plus, Billy's gotten a lot of charisma and promo skills since I've got him.

Yeah, both are live. The smaller network is refusing and threatening to sue. :rolleyes:

Those are a bitch, aren't they? I consistently get mid 300,000s in the US/Canada, and and 150,000 in the UK. The UK one declines every half hour, while the US/Canada one rises every half hour. So confusing.

Bummer, my Billy Russel has C mic skills and charmisa and E-rated acting skills and I only have one decent manager who isn't on the same brand as him so Russell's gotten over purely on push and his matches. He's wrestled 57 matches this year alone not including dark matches, but his skills haven't really improved much. But his average match rating is A and his highest rated match this year was (several) A*. For the first time this year, I might have a "homegrown" talent make the annual rankings which is cool :D. JD Morgan almost made it last year, but he got injured right before the end of 2010 and his match average slid to B+ =\.

 

I've finished booking the matches for "tonight's" PPV, Border Line, but I'm a bit worried about how the thirty-man battle royal will turn out. Plus I'm going to give Vessey the benefit of the doubt and let him try and carry the main event. Hopefully, I can get at least an A rating out of his match, although it's face v. face

PPV went very well actually. Vessey came through in the clutch. Here's the card from start to finish. Some of the names might be unfamilliar but Angel Riggs is a generated wrestler, Zodiac is Fumihiro Ota and Kazuma Narato, Dazero Vegog is Hell Monkey, Father Time is Pablo Rodriguez. Asterisks identify champions, and parenthesis denote winners.

I'm fairly pleased. That makes 7 out of 9 A rated cards for October, my best month yet. Border Line is my second-highest grossing PPV this year behind nW Standoff in August. TCW was foolish enough to have a PPV on the same day as me and got destroyed. Their buy rate barely broke 200,000 but they sold out their show and made more off of ticket sales. Their PPV was only rated B though, so I still won :D. Even after spending $600,000 canceling contracts, I still turned a profit of 5,606,651 due to a spike in sponsorship money thanks to my new talent acquisitions.
