NEO GTT Round Robin
Chris King vs. Ryan Strong
Going to go with Strong here, mainly for a fact that hes at least 10 years older than anyone else and thus has shorter span on being on top (before time decline hits) than the other five. That compained with the fact that you picked him as one of your starting six (or seven if we count the Adam Sullivan) makes me think that you have some plans for him to make impact asap.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Jim Heatly vs. Jon Diamani
Right, so I picked against Heatly twice and did regret it both times, can Jim make me regret my pick again or will third time finally be the charm for me? So yeah, the reasoning is pretty much same that before, user character etc.

Lincoln Nash vs. Lobo
Lobo was one half of the best match in NEO so far and thats likely counting something

NEO Generational Title Tournament, Night One

NEO GTT Round Robin
Chris King vs. Ryan Strong
Ryan Strong is a great character and I'd love him to win the whole Round Robin.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Jim Heatly vs. Jon Diamani
I think Heatly ends up as the bottom feeder of the Round Robin, but he uses his tricks and guile to pick up a couple wins here and there. I think a cheap win in the opener will suit him best, and later in the tournament the competitors will figure him out.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Lincoln Nash vs. Lobo
Lobo just seems so much more impressive than Nash, and I think he jumps out to an early lead and tries to hold on.

Gimmick Ratings
Above Average: Ryan Strong (Bitter Veteran)
Average: Chris King (Average)

Foolish Commentary: One night into the tournament and we already have two more E+ matches to our name (and James got an E!). I’m also happy that Lee neither showed up to work hungover or worse.

Tonight, while Adam Sullivan remained our interviewer, I split up the road agent duties between him, Lobo, and Ryan Strong. I’m kind of torn on if should continue doing this. I know being a road agent increases psychology, which would help Ryan, Lobo, and any other wrestler. At the same time, Adam has a limited time before he’ll be forced behind the scenes. With enough time I could be able to turn him into our long term road agent. I’ll most likely stick to swapping road agents for now and check back after March is over.

I also I set up two fresh storylines for this tournament. Each storyline consists of three main wrestlers (Chris, Jim, and Ryan in one and Jon, Lincoln, and Lobo in the other). Both ended up with E+ heat after this show. In addition, I also added the wrestlers as minor wrestlers in each other storyline with Adam being added as a minor worker in both storylines. I did it so that each storyline will always be moved forward on each show. If you do something like this in your game, please make sure that two “main” wrestlers are in an angle together during the first show or else it won’t start.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Chris King vs. Jim Heatly
Im not certain if I should just keep picking against Heatly on the basis that he has to lose one day or if I should just go with flow and start picking him. Im going with the first option mostly because Im stubborn, but also since I kind of feel that the moment I start picking Jim, hes starting to lose matches and then I never be right.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Lobo vs. Ryan Strong
Keepign things even here by keeping anyone out from more than 4 points in order to keep things close for a time being.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Jon Diamani vs. Lincoln Nash
Both lost on the first round and loser here will have hard time getting into top 2. Diamani is my pick, mainly since he had few more matches since he got here via tournament instead of being last champion and is thus slighly more established in my eyes.

Given King's last performance, I see him being the guy to knock Heatly down a peg.

Lobo vs. Ryan Strong
I think Lobo is the favorite to go deep, and him winning here puts him solidly in first, and gives Strong more motivation to redeem himself

To have a "loser" in the Round Robin without them looking weak, I could see you doing a Juice-esque angle where Diamani's injury plays a big part in his losses.

Foolish Commentary: This show wasn't at the same level as night one, but I knew that going in. We had two matches featuring opponents of the same alignment and the main event involved the worst member of the roster, my user character. On top of that, Jim got notes for being off his game and was tiring in the ring. With all that said, I'm happy to see Jim Heatly main eventing a show and the event not being the worst show we've ever run. It shows what happens when your wrestlers get a bit of overness to back them up.

Switching gears for a moment, I thought I'd take a bit of time to start talking more about the things that I do behind the scenes to help myself organize and/or write the diary. Today, it's creating a theme music playlist for the game. This is something that I know is optional, however, to me, it's a critical step in my process. Giving each wrestler a theme song (even if it really wouldn't work as entrance music) helps me ground the character, making them easier to write and book for. As an added benefit, creating the playlist also gives me something to listen to while I write and play the game.

Jim Heatly had an interview with Adam Sullivan hyping his upcoming singles match with Ryan Strong. Jim brags about being on the top of the block and being a “lock” for the finals. He completely ignores a question about him and Ryan Strong working together, denying that Ryan even appeared at ring-side, much less attacked Chris King in last show’s main event.

After making his entrance, Jon Diamani asks for the microphone. Jon thanks the fans for coming and apologizes for his slow start in the tournament. Jon starts to talk about how tonight is make or break, when Lobo comes out from the back and brutally assaults Jon. Lobo runs him into ring posts and tries to choke him out with the microphone cord. Officials break the two apart, but Jon Diamani wants to continue the match, to the delight of the crowd.

Foolish Commentary: I’m not sure if anyone is checking on the promotional progress, but for those who are, you might have noticed that the backstage ratings has taken a small dip. This is due to us falling under $10,000 in debt and getting hit with a morale penalty. Thankfully, the success of our previous shows are helping up keep a decent backstage atmosphere. While this penalty isn’t going to be an issue for me due to hiring a bunch of positive influences, this can quickly spiral down if you aren’t careful. A poor locker room will lead to “neutral” influences acting up like negative influences and I would imagine an extremely bad locker room would have all the workers acting like spoiled brats.

Back to tonight’s show, I did get a locker room incident, but it was just Adam Sullivan putting Jon Diamani into wrestler’s court. This incident seems always to be either harmless or a positive, but I could imagine some personality type not enjoying this interaction. The rest of the show was pretty good as our wrestlers once again pull out two E+ matches and Lobo and Jon put together the best angle in NEO history. It’s going to be a while before any non-menace based angle approaches this one.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Chris King vs. Lobo
So after two draws and an angle were Chris specifically points out that hes style isnt suited into this tournament, I finally start to figure out (hopefully) that hes style is to try to slowly wear opponents down. Kind of same with Lobo who has proven to be quite vicious with his attacks, even getting himself disqualified once. Now how Im I planning to utilization all this... actually I dont think its helps me at all on this one since Im not sure if this is another draw for King or if Lobo is getting himself a DQ. I go with ladder simply because I feel that Lobos character wouldnt take well on being on standstill with another wrestler and could easily become overly frustrated and thus throwing potential win away.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Jon Diamani vs. Ryan Strong
With Lobo likely being busy getting himself DQd I figure that Strong is the heel who gets himself into title match.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Jim Heatly vs. Lincoln Nash
So, with Diamani being injured and thus losing three matches into row and King not being able to get wins (even if he doesnt lose either) would that put Nash into title match by default? I could still see King getting there via DQ win this round and then beating injured Diamani on next while Nash would still have to face Strong but I guess keeping Nashs chances alive doesnt hurt while Heatly could still get into finals even with loss here.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Chris King vs. Lobo
With two matches left and looking at the board, I think we're looking at a King/Strong finals. That means King has to win out, which I think fits the story he's had so far as Zergon puts above.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Jon Diamani vs. Ryan Strong
Originally I had Strong marked to win this, which I still think could happen. Looking at the potential final matches, I think Diamani gets the upset to add more drama to the finals and keep every match live.

NEO GTT Round Robin
Jim Heatly vs. Lincoln Nash
I don't think Heatly makes it to the finals. Based on the matches left, he needs to lose out if King is going to make the finals, so I see him losing here. Strong might lose tonight to put more importance on that match.

If my predictions are right, that leaves us with:

Jim Heatly (6 pts) vs Lobo (5 pts)

Chris King (5 pts) vs Jon Diamani (3 pts)

Ryan Strong (7 pts) vs Lincoln Nash (7 pts)

Where King/Lobo/Strong all win, and King gets through on tiebreaker. Lobo potentially getting involved in the King/Diamani match and both faces team up to take him out.

Adam asks Chris if he is going to change his strategy for tonight's match. Chris chuckles and says that, thats the problem. To beat Lobo, King knows hell need to wear the big man down and that takes time, time that he doesnt know if he has.

Foolish Commentary: With one show to go its anyones game (except for Jon, but thats ok because he has the respect of the fans). I wasnt going to say anything until after the round robin, but I want to thank Zergon and Jon Lions for putting so much effort into your predictions throughout the round robin. Its been really entertaining for me to see what you think is happening and I was especially happy to see both of you dialed into this show (you did the math!). I hope I can continue keeping you guys entertained going forward.

As for this show, I thought it was pretty well all things considered. Seeing Jim get an E+ with Lincoln was fun to see. It makes sense seeing as both men can brawl, but at the same time Im happy to see Jim not being dead weight right now. The main event was a bit bitter sweet though. Their E+ was the second best match in NEO so far, but, apparently, it could have been a bit better as it turns out Chris and Lobo have poor chemistry.

Although, how poor can the chemistry really be if the match was still an E+?

Next week, we are still on the three update plan. Monday will be the second monthly update followed by the last night of the round robin on Wednesday and the first event featuring non-block action next Friday. If you want to know anything in particular for the monthly update, let me know over the weekend.

Loving this diary so far, always nice to learn new things and learning is pretty much guaranteed when reading your diaries.

I would be interested knowing about your wrestlers popularity gains as I myself find it hard to raise popularity past low E- (17 to be exact).

Due to a combination of real life taking my time this weekend and me forgetting that I needed to actually look at TEWs data to get all of the information I need, the monthly update will not be able to be produced today. I still want to do something, so I thought Id talk a bit more about how I manage to write/produce the diary.

The first thing that I do is create a place that I can take notes. For a while now, my program of choice has been Microsoft OneNote. The program is set up like an old school notebook. You start with a book, which then has section groups and sections, within these sections you can have multiple pages. Each page is more or less the same as a Word or Google Doc (there are some differences, but they serve the same purpose for this example). In terms of this diary, this post will be on one page of the RtG CAN section with the TEW section group in my General book.

After setting up the notebook, I will then start planning out the game. This means different things depending on the promotion. For blank starts like this one, its figure out who to hire, while for existing promotions its seeing who the promotion has and where they are in the world.

In any case, there is going to come a point where you start planning out the events. When that happens, I will create a new page and start outlining the show(s). I start with the angles and storylines that instantly come to mind. Once I have that down, I will then start to note and/or fill in major issues or holes within the card outlines. Ill check to make sure that there arent timing issues with the storylines. For example, maybe Wrestler A is supposed to assault Wrestler B on Show #5, but it doesnt make sense because Wrestler B is supposed to save Wrestler C in the main event. Another example could be that show #6 and #7 dont have any matches on them, but #5 and #8 are full of storyline matches and angles.

Once I have the backbone of the cards worked out, Ill start fleshing out the first couple of shows. The number depends on many factors, including, but not limited to: the size of the rosters, the amount of shows per month, and the lengths of the shows. For this diary, this is the process that I took:
  • Wrote down the initial storylines that I wanted to run: Generational Title Tournament and both sets of qualifiers that lead to it.
  • Completely mapped out the round robin (Ill go through this process on a later day), booking them throughout all of February and the first show of March. This lead to full match cards for shows 5 through 9. I also booked the main event of show 12 as my finals.
  • Knowing who I want in the round robin, I added place holders for each main event in January (e.g. Ryan Strong over ??? for show 2).
  • Next, I booked the wildcard qualifiers in a similar manner. I knew Jim and Jon were going to qualify and after seeing the amount of card space I had, settled on the single elimination qualifiers. This filled up shows 1 and 2. I originally had the finals be on show 3 before settling on show 4.
  • With the storyline matches set, I filled in the main events for shows 10 and 11 and completed show 3 with the tag match and an Adam Sullivan victory. I left the undercard for the last three shows unbooked, allowing me to more easily react to want the game throws at me (e.g. chemistry notes, injuries, and new debuts).
  • Finally, I looked through the worker pool to finalize the January shows.

When this process is done, I end up with something like this:

Quote:
CWT TV Jan #1
Trios Match: Life Without Fear vs. Street Survivors & Tex Gruber
CWT Mid-Southern: Darius King vs. ??? (Local) - Domination
Singles Match: Duke Dynamite vs. Matt Gibson
Singles Match: George Brooks vs. The Ghost Rider - Brooks kept strong - Story Telling
#1 Contender's Match: Big Bubba vs. Luther Mack Double DQ - Life Without Fear

Angles: Life Without Fear Promo; The Coach, King, and Silverback overplay King's defenses (most of which have been locals like tonight); The Ghost Rider continues to assault Brooks after the match; Duke Dynamite and Smokin Stevie Gunn cut a promo on the Gibson Brothers; Hype for the main event

NOTE: Maybe sign Nouel Fortin as the lead announcer (B- and only around 1,000 dollars). Change Jesse and Sonny's gimmicks
I then will take the outline, play through the game and copy down all of the match notes. It looks something like the following:

Gimmick
Very Good: Jason Steele,
Average: Adam Sullivan, Jim Heatly
Finally, I will take these notes and turn them into what you see. At the start of the diary, I will come up with a format for the updates, the angles, and the matches and save a template into a page in OneNote. I will then copy and paste the appropriate parts of the template as many times as needed. Using the example above, Id copy and paste the match template three times before copying the angle template two times, in-between the matches. Next, Ill copy and paste the notes from the game into the updated template before expanding on anything that needs it (usually this means fleshing out the angles). Finally, I update the pictures and then proof-read the whole thing.

Note: The monthly overview will now be coming on Wednesday (now with popularity changes!) with the last night of the round robin coming on Friday.
