Visser Three Posted May 5, 2016 Share Posted May 5, 2016 This is a game I've been wanting to do for some time, so finally, I am. It's the night after Wrestlemania XXX, and the fan's rebellion has forced WWE to put the title on internet darling Daniel Bryan. Vince McMahon is left stunned, as he was convinced that Batista/Orton would be the match of the century. Scrambling to come up with an explanation, he overhears an off-hand comment about how Batista's Rumble win was pretty predictable, and latches onto it. Predictability! That's what the people are objecting to! So, he decides, he'll deal with that problem. What's less predictable than a match NO-ONE (except the ref and the wrestlers) knows the finish to. Not even the announcers! Not even the show's writers! You can't be too predictable if the fans don't know what's going on! He waits in the Gorilla position before every match, to tell the performers the finish, leading them to be the only two people who know what's going to happen. The Raw after Wrestlemania, our show begins. (Out of Universe rules) So, here's the deal. The winner of each match is determined at random, with a roll of 20 sided die. They get bonuses for popularity, momentum, holding championships, being the company figurehead, cashing in the MITB, and a fairly small bonus for "Booker's Favor." That's to tilt things slightly more in the favor of, say, a midcarder who's in a story vs a midcarder not in one, and similar things. I'm limiting myself to invoking it at most once per show. If you want me to explain the specifics, I'd be happy to edit those into here. The reason I'm not leaving this entirely up to the AI is that I still have to write segments and such that take place AFTER each match, where hypothetical booker me does know how it came out. All that combined means that while it's random, it's not totally unpredictable. At any given time (after Extreme Rules) there must be a minimum of 1) WWE Championship story 2) US Title Story 3) Intercontinental Title Story 4) Tag Title Story 5) Divas Title Story 6) 1 Main Event vs Main Event story 7) 1 Main Event vs Upper Midcarder story 8) 1 Upper Midcarder vs Midcarder story The matches are determined with Roll + Bonuses. In an elimination match, the order is determined from lowest to highest roll. In a tag team match, all competitor's bonuses are added together to make the team bonus. In a handicap match, however, the average bonus of the wrestlers involved is taken, with a +2 for each additional wrestler. Also remember I can determine HOW matches play out. So a guy could 'win' off a bad finish, or interference, if that's how the dice play out. Additionally, at some point I'm probably going to make WWE an intergender fed, because I tend to forget its women's division exists. Other minor note, this mod started me off on April 1st, even though I wanted this to be after Wrestlemania. All that means is that there's one extra Raw and Smackdown before Extreme Rules comes around. Now, without too much further ado: The McMahons must be Crazy.
