Are you being sarcastic? If not, then thanks that is nice of you to say. Going by the 3 star rating this thread has I didn't think people were that big on it.
49. I will admit I am probably the only 1 who wants this. I think there should be more randomness in final match ratings and final angle ratings. Yes, it does exist, but not enough in my opinion. I don't use the repetitive booking penalty, pretend that the repetitive booking doesn't matter for this example. Lets say WWE books Finn Balor vs. Kevin Owens every 2 weeks for 4 months. No silly sports entertainment stuff, just 20-25 minutes of pure wrestling. The norm would be for these matches to be around 4 stars-4 1/2 stars. That is what will probably happen. Maybe a 4 3/4 stars will slip in. That is realistic but there is the chance of a match deviating from the norm. A 3 1/4 star match can happen. That is basically not possible in TEW. The matches would probably look something like,
92, 90, 95, 89, 90, 86, 94, 93.
You get a general range of what the match will be. There is no way they are getting something like a 75 in a straight up match. Maybe if someone was high or hurt, but I'm talking about a normal 20-25 minute match. Should the 92, 90, 95, 89, 90, 86, 94, and 93 be expected match ratings? Yes. Should that range basically be guaranteed in a normal 20-25 minute match? In my opinion no.
Worker A averages a 70 match rating. Worker B averages a 75 match rating. Worker A and Worker B when facing each other get around a 68-77 rating. In real life are these guys going to score a 100 match rating? No, but there is a VERY small chance. In real life maybe they shock everyone and get a 95, a 90, or a 52. That is basically not possible in TEW. I get the chances of it happening are very, very small, but I would like it as a possibility.
Here is a real life example. At WrestleMania this year AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura had a 20 minute 3 stars match. 3 stars is the average rating I have seen from this match online. In TEW you can book this match and you can have both guys have "off nights", and without anyone being in time decline there is no chance of this match not having a great rating. There is no way a match like this is getting around 3 stars. I'm not saying I want tons of randomness going into match ratings and the match ratings are all over the place and random. What I would like to see is a TEW AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura 20 minute match to have a chance
at being really disappointing instead of it being guaranteed to be a great match.
