    It'll soon be flip a coin time I think........

    its gonna be tough to take that championship from around MNGs waist methinks....though its really far too early for such talk, but the Bulldogs & SCSA are a great start and suit MNG imo


  • Registered Users Posts: 86,346 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    I hope no one feels I am pressuring them to pick fast (everyone has their 24 hours), apologies if it comes across that way, it is just I would like to see the next round draw and more important whether there is a stip or not and what it is

    In fairness MNG's first two picks could be Gillberg & The Godwinns and I'd still have him as favourite :pac:

    I never thought I'd land them so I tried not to get excited about it. I think one or two of the lads ahead of me had drafted them in previous years so I had to hope they would look for something different this time. Guess it was my time to land them. Bit like with Stone Cold!

    I love after you make your second pick because this is the point in the game where you can feel your roster start to develop a bit of an identity.

    Have to say some of the other rosters look very tasty indeed. I'm looking forward to seeing what ideas people go with.

    Phew, was extremely worried I wouldn't get them there! Thank god I did! Love writing for them last year (what little I did write) so it was great to get them! A very ROH feel to my roster so far haha.

    Also, beakerjoe was bang on! Wyatt vs Taker that is just a mouth-watering feud!

    I actually can't wait to see the stip for the next round and of course the running order of draftees :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,594 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    I had an idea for a stip I thought I'd throw in. I'd tentatively call it the Non-Title Round.

    As the name suggests, participants would be unable to draft a person that has held any championship in their careers. That would include titles from the indie scene. So even if your intended target only held something small like the West Virginia South-East Regional TV Title they would still be ineligible. :pac:

    I thought it might be a nice challenge and get people's thinking caps on. If there's interest I'd suggest it would be best used later in the game. Then again, it might not prove popular with people.

    Just an idea. If it's not a goer then no worries.

    I'd be worried with that not round. Not because I couldn't find anyone but it would just be crappy characters or wrestlers who would just be jobber fodder to be honest!

    Working on Round 3 details now. Going with another "Fire Sale" themed round, opening things up, rather than limiting them.

    Right now, we have two obvious stips later on (Celebs and pre-1970s), one I'm working on right now.

    I like the idea MNG, but worry "No titles ever" might be severely limiting; I think most people who participants would want to deal with would have held some **** title somewhere long the way. But would a "No titles in WWE, WCW or ROH" round work later on in the game?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,478 ✭✭✭brianregan09


    I like how we started a ROH only stip last year , Maybe a TNA type one this year , or how about a round with Wrestlers just from outside North America

    Yes I think that would work quite well. Maybe not too late though, if it's at the end they'd be an afterthought. If it was in the middle you'd likely still have some good names to draft but I think people would be more likely to formulate a position/feud for them with their following picks.

    Yeah the 'no title' notion does seem extremely challenging. I was thinking it would be best suited to between about rd 10-15 but even then it looks bloody tough. :D

    It would likely have to be adapted in some way like you suggested. I didn't realise so many wrestlers have held championships, but having looked at a few names the last few minutes it turns out almost all of them have. :pac:
