No one will believe me, but logging in today, I "FELT" something about TEW 2020. I have no idea why. And here it is. It is a beautiful day. Thank you Adam for returning to your best work.

I guess my big worry is, with the game finally being redesigned and ripped apart so to speak (and this is what myself and many have been calling on for years now isnt it?), will mods and databases still be able to be converted and carry over? That sounds like it would be a big achievement. To have that, plus the redesign

Adam has confirmed the converter being included earlier in the thread.

I'm impressed. I'm presuming in that case the big overhaul tear down will be more visual and how the game is presented, and not in terms of how the game simulates and the general database. Which is good for me because the gameplay I dont feel needs a total tearing down, just some tweaking. Visually, I do think the interface needs to be torn down. It's not aesthetic or intuitive, even for someone who has played for so many years.

There were plenty of wee database tweaks in 16. If he's promising new features then there's bound go be in 2020. Event Live From and Event Held At would be two crackers, as would the return of Event Type for PPV's.

This is great news. Iíve always been a purchaser of the games since 2008, but also recall getting some form of the EWR game. This year though Iíve gotten more immersed in the game than any of the previous years since I have more time on my hands. Anyway really looking forward to following the changes announced in the DJ and looking for to hopefully next year.

I imagine Windows 7 will be supported, assuming Adam is using the same coding language as before.

I love that you can play as a child promotion. This is going to make a huge difference for many people.

Also some of the things to better our lives as players from yesterdays update are great!

This is something I may have to discuss on my YouTube Channel too. Maybe I can get some other people out there interested in some TEW!!!

Thank you so much Adam! Been playing your games all the way back to your orange website in the late 90s I believe. You have provided many hours of entertainment.

I added this to the suggestion thread, but long story short, the ability to use The Network to track viewing habits and/or using tape libraries to release "Best Of...." DVDs to track which unsigned veteran fans are reacting to for possible nostalgia runs.

You want to bring in Jim Duggan for a 6 month run, you can release a Jim Duggan DVD and pick which matches to include to build up his popularity before bringing him in, so he has high momentum when he debuts.

Or, tracking Network viewing habits to see that fans seemingly are watching a ton of Rick Martel matches, so you could bring him in for a few appearances because you know your fans will react favorably to him, whereas fans really aren't watching any Paul Roma matches, so you know it's a bigger risk bringing him in.

I feel like this is unnecessary muddle or excessive, as if you control a network you don't really control your network as it is. Yes it would add depth and be cool, but isn't necessary. It would be nice to be able to have a mechanic for a network to say push a particular character. So someone in your company gains passive pop upto a certain limit based on your network size, but like "creating dvds" or "seeing viewership of everyone's network matches". Including those who have left, and management of tape libraries would be far more tedious than enjoyable.

But yeah a simple mechanic to push a particular wrestler on the network resulting in a slight Popilarity bump each month would be nice, and if you were a Booker or in a child company the AI doing it would be cool.

As a general note, please remember to post your suggestions in the Suggestions forum. If they're only in this thread, as some of you are doing, your idea runs the risk of being missed.

"Please use this thread for all discussion of TEW2020" - Maybe go and edit your own opening post then Adam.

I don't think they are entirely suggestions but more or less ideas we've all had that we're bouncing off one another. Expectations, desires, hopes, things like that.

We're not "suggesting" it more so "discussing" what would be cool. Otherwise what else can we really talk about? We've only had two reveals so far, and the dev company is a super awesome addition, and the QoL changes are dope. Yet we can't just continue to echo the thoughts and sentiments that we've already shared.

I think you're getting the wrong end of the stick - what I'm saying is that if people post their suggestions in this thread and don't bother with the suggestions forum then they're running the risk of their idea not being considered. That's why the journal post specifically asks people to post there, because I'll catch their post during one of my regular sweeps. If it's hidden away in this thread, chances are it's going to get lost amongst the chaos. I've edited my post to try and make that crystal clear.
