I would just rather see more skilled announcers -- or there be a benefit to having multiple announcers on the roster. I get it from a cosmetic standpoint in having different voices for different shows, but it drives me crazy when companies have three or four play by play announcers and the same amount of color commentators.

But I agree that more announcers that are skilled (read, Above Average/Strong announcing skills) available for hire would be great.

I hope that they can be mentored by great announcers. Similar to how proteges work. It is a damn shame that a rookie announcer with 58 announcing will hardly ever get better from what I have seen.

I don't think I have seen an announcer get much better at all, really. Just a few points. It takes FOREVER too. Maybe I have been doing it wrong or have been unlucky. This also applies to colour commentators as well.

On that note, could we please have guest/replacement referees be rated on their Overess instead of actual refereeing skill? I think the reasoning (and real life examples) are pretty self-explanatory...

I'm going to be that guy...

The suggestions forum is here.

If you have a suggestion for the game, please at least share it in there - we don't want Adam to miss it if it's only posted in here.

I thought this was already the case?

I'd like to see the requirement for a ref to be gone from Local feds. When I ran POBYW (and I know other local feds have done it) we counted our own pins.

Obviously it isn't realistic for anything bigger than local backyarders, but it would help save money for people doing the local to global challenges.

I know this is going off topic, but that is the most beautiful portion of a post I've ever read on here. It makes the time spent on the mod worth it, I'm sure my colleagues would agree. If you ever want to ask anything on the UK or European scene then feel free to PM me.

Pretty sure this can be replicated by having the workers be the refs. You may get occasional penalties if you use the same guy as a ref for the entire show (it treats them as "special guest referees") but you can still make this work at micro levels. Same way you can use wrestlers as road agents for matches instead of hiring a specific road agent.

Plus they do make or break the show in their own way. Just compare say Kent Walton on World of Sport to Nick Patrick on Deep South Wrestling.

I hope the gimmicks system has a rework. As it is today, gimmicks make no practical difference. I can create any gimmick and book the worker the way I want and this does not have any punishment. I do not know, it just seems weird. I know that imagination is a point for people playing TEW, but making it affect the mechanics of the game would be interesting. I do not know exactly how this would be done, so this is not going to be a suggestion. It's more about having hope.

Is it possible to add Stretched Full Screen with the new code base?

"Secondly, it means that you can always get to the Player's Handbook with a single click. The Handbook is extremely detailed in TEW2020 and also has the added advantage that it will automatically jump to the correct section - so if you're in the Finance section and hit the Handbook icon, you'll not only open the Handbook window but also immediately be looking at the section related to finances."

I hope this is a subtle hint that finances are being expanded. In its current state, it barely needed its own section in the handbook. Its extremely self explanatory. A guy can hope!!

Yes I agree with this. Would be nice if we get more companies that kick people out that dont work and aggressively look for other talents without it being too much on both sides.

Similarly, I wish there was a way that gimmicky alter egos would only be used by appropriate companies. It's weird to see NOTBPW poach people like The Crippler or Sara Marie York, and then suddenly the no-nonsense serious wrestling promotion has a lobster man and a wrestling secretary!

Not to mention that so much time is being taken to carry out a comprehensive restructure of the game. We can all name "leading" franchises that re-release every year with minimal changes.
