Derek B Posted July 5, 2017 Share Posted July 5, 2017 So... something I've wanted to do for a long time is to try to run a real world dataset while booking the shows as close to real life as possible. After putting in a lot of time adding to Fleisch's excellent mod I think it's time to test out just how close to real life it really is. Obviously, not everything is going to be perfect but if we're close then this test should point us in the direction of what needs tweaked while also showing us things that the real life WWE could do better. I'm planning to run this game for between one and three months of real time (depending on how much work it becomes), using only the WWE. I'll be running Raw and Smackdown as close to reality as possible, while also running 205 Live exclusively on the WWE Network. I watch all of those shows so they should be easy enough for me to book. The game has Main Event set as a show too... I may read a recap to book that, but honestly, I think so few people watch that show that it's almost irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. Though for the sake of this test, I may just have to give it a look and find out what I'm missing out on. One downside to not watching live is that I may misplace commercials a bit due to watching an edited version without them, but things should work out pretty accurately to real life if I pay enough attention. Before I even get to properly booking the first show, there are some angles where it's hard to define where one segment ends and the next begins, particularly in a section where one worker changes. I've timed it as best I can in order to find the line... you'll see what I mean soon enough. The first editions of RAW and Smackdown are on their way in the next day or two, I'm going to assume for the purposes of this dynasty that you have watched the show. If you get spoilered in here, I'm not taking responsibility. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
