Corki Posted May 3, 2016 Share Posted May 3, 2016 UFC 2001: The ZUFFA Takeover - This diary will be played with the Old School Rules mod, I have played up to January 2001, and the game will officially be documented from the first ever ZUFFA event and onward (UFC 30) - This diary will also follow a semi-schedule of posting, in terms of the order of events (purely to keep myself on task and in order for the diary to maintain somewhat of a flow): 0. r/MMA (ongoing): Every in-game month I will be posting a r/MMA-style front page with all the major news for the month. Naturally, major news is subjective and there is no precedent for what is featured in these posts. What that goes to say is that not every fighter signing or firing will be featured, and most of the news that is included will be based on the major players in the game world. 1. Announcement: Every event will be announced at a "season opener" press conference, much like the UFC has been doing as of late. Naturally, given the lesser amount of top-tier talent to work with in the earlier years, these pressers will be somewhat brief at first but will hopefully develop into more interesting reads. Multiple events will be announced at each conference, beginning each event's story arc into the second stage. 2. Countdown: Something I've always toyed with doing was writing my own countdowns in order to create a real story and make the game less of just putting numbers on paper and following along, essentially trying to combine the story and character development of a TEW dynasty without necessarily having the full span of control over the events that occur. In order to flesh out the characters a bit, there will be small countdown style posts (much-like the television series) which will provide the context for the fight (fighter improvements, major events during the lead-up, etc...). Essentially, these will serve as a small recap for those who don't want to follow every post and just get the important parts. 3. Pre-Fight Press Conference: Any last minute details about the fights, contender announcements, and if anyone is interested in sending in questions to be asked, they will be answered in either this conference or the post-fight conference (depending on the question, of course) 4. The Fights: Self-Explanatory 5. Post-Fight Press Conference: Similar to the pre-fight conference, however, the news revealed in this conference is strictly based on my booking plans and such, giving the reader an inside look into the promotion and how things look moving forward. So, without further ado, let's get it on! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
