Default The GAMMA Thread

What is your strategy for GAMMA in this latest go-round?

You've got a nascent super heavyweight division that can't really stand on its own yet. You've got a slightly beefed up fighter roster thanks to FLB's demise and some timely poaching at BCF and XCC. Where do you go from here?

How quickly do you bring back Clash of the Titans? How often do you book events, and what do your cards look like? I try to run monthly events, with 12 fights (one in each division for both the main card and the prelim) per card, but then I also tend to run bulky rosters with lots of fresh meat for the grinder.

What's your strategy?

Default Early GAMMA

Signed a variety of prospects. Encouraged Matthew Dean to open a US-based team, and target some decent prospects to relocate/join a team.

Opened a FW division.

One Normal Show, PPV per month. Roster seems strong enough to handle 12 legit main events per year. 6 main/6 prelim fights. Try to make sure to have all the main cards be ranked fighters. Prelims are unranked.

Battle lines once ever other month - lesser show on CANN.

Started a new "throwaway" show on SportsTube, where I can get away with a main event that's High Level Regional (currently i'm mid-level national) to get an extra 12 flights for primarily lower tier guys.

Seems to give me about 800K per month, and keep my credibility/stability decently high, without growing too fast that I outgrow my main-eventers.

I'm having one night tournaments on Battle lines every other month to grow new stars. Isaiah Monroe has been the most successful. Going from unranked to 10th in middleweight rankings

The first step I have done is just close the Super Heavyweight division as I've never really grown any of them to a good level and I don't have any favorites I like to see grow at that division. This lets me concentrate on developing the other weight classes. I then open a FW division as grabbing Ziskie and building him up quickly gives me another main eventer. This time I tried also opening two women's divisions from the beginning, flyweight and bantamweight. It's been slow and steady building those 2 divisions, but I also like the excitement that anyone could step up and just make a run to write their name in the GAMMA history books.

I fill up each division with about 40 guys with a mix of prospects and veterans who get cut/FLB remains. This results in running a lot of TV shows/throwaway shows to give them a chance and if they do well, they may find their names on the main card of a PPV. This also allows me to rush to Mid-National asap so I can get a contract with North America Prime Select to give my fighters more exposure and grow my company faster.

After I have the infrastructure set up, I might use Clash of the Titans to crown a new division champion like bantamweight. I also have to wait for my favorite guys like Villar, Satinho to run through their Alpha-1 contracts so I can hopefully win them in a bidding war.

I'm not playing as GAMMA, but have just seen them cut Nathan Chambers after a split decision loss to Jack Humphreys in his first in-game fight

Thought I'd gauge opinion here before making a thread in the suggestions forum: although I like the idea of the AI being a bit more aggressive in cutting fighters, does this seem a bit OTT?

You ain't seen nothing yet. BE sure to keep an eye on big companies cutting good guys after one or two losses. I've gotten a few of ALPHA's guys doing this

Just coming up to three years in and my slow build on Ekkberg is about to pay off. He's now ranked #3 heavyweight, is 15-0 (9-0 GAMMA), and at mid level international name value is actually the most popular guy in the world. His next fight is Kapur for the title, in one I expect him to lose, but his stats have improved enough to at least make it an interesting fight.

It's practically a joke division for people who don't want to cut weight and a few freaks IRL, so it annoys me seeing it in the game even if it's portrayed as a burgeoning division. I think it ruins my suspension of disbelief more than the cg renders honestly.

my whole life heavyweight was the pinnacle for all combat sports, the most risk and reward, but like you said super heavyweight is a joke

Don't get the hate for the super heavies lol. Yeah, they aren't great to start with. But that creates a challenge to build the division, doesn't it? And while there aren't that many real life fighters who would fit nicely into a super heavy division, the Cverse isn't reality and its nice to have a bit of divergence.

So, I was playing a game just goofing around and had The Rock Carlton come out of retirement and he beat Stratos and I decided to start my game over and play alittle wiser. Sticking with the same scenario where I'd make Carlton have another run at the belt. Sadly this time around he was submitted with 10 seconds left in the fight after dominating.

Just had Valentin Taneyev against Marlon John in the semi main of GAMMA 60. Figured it would be a good fight to build Taneyev into a superstar... but first two rounds were John taking it to the ground and Taneyev needed a finish. He got it in the third.... with a body punch. KO. Boom.
