I've found that the base game has a 50% discount on Steam, but the Promoter Mode is full price.

Odd, maybe I read wrong?

I've never really played a FP game - are they simulators mostly?

They can if you want them to. Gameplay's still very good, but does have a distinct learning curve.

It's basically a sandbox. You can make characters and you can configure the AI to act as you like.

In Returns I had made a league that was basically Art of Fighting but taking place in a wrestling ring and set in international waters.

That just makes it sound like you HAD DLC in that save, and now it's uninstalled or something?

Does anyone have some hands on impressions of the promoter mode? I've seen a little bit of NL playing it and I'm still kind of on the fence at the moment.

Well I'm dumb and figured it was because of edits that I had downloaded that had been updated to add DLC moves and whatnot... so I deleted them and that made my save data useless cos I'm a DUMMY and didn't read the warning that it gave me when I tried to delete them. I mean, yeah, the warning was in Japanese but I probably should've figured, I suppose.

Also also!! If you hold down L1+L2 when picking the number of promotions and the difficulty level in Promoter mode then you'll start with 10 million and have no cap on how many wrestler start in your promotion.

And the Junior Heavyweight DLC is out on the 13th, but I don't even know. Now with everything planned out of the way I'm kind of waiting to see what happens - if they decide to go back and take another look at Promoter or just leave it as is. After doing some research here and there, it seems very limiting and light in its approach which is fine and all, I might pick it up if the DLC ever goes 50% off or something like that but it has kind of taken the wind out of my sails.

Yeah, I looked into it too and I can't justify $20 for it when it sounds as limited as it does.

I don’t buy all that many games so I said screw it and dropped the $20 for a promoter mode.

Decided to use AEW, but just like you do when you start with a new promotion you can only keep six wrestlers, so I went the realistic route and kept Kenny, Jericho, Hangman, Cody, and the Bucks which sent the rest of the roster into free agency.

I then used my one available free agent signing on PAC.  I tried to invite Best Friends or SCU to work the Bucks but couldn’t get more than one member from either to commit.  So I jostled the card around and ended up with:

-A game-generated Japanese guy I invited going over Chuck Taylor

-Hangman and Cody beating the Bucks for the AEW Tag titles

-Daniels over PAC

-Kenny over Jericho for the AEW title

Every match got over 90% and the main got 100%, making it a killer first show.

And then I advance to February and get told my February event is going to be an interpromotional tournament with NXT!

Do you have to watch every match? Do you determine who wins?

You can watch, skip, or play any match.  But no way to decide a winner.

The monthly notes on what other promotions are doing are hilarious.  I wasn’t sure if there was any sort of logic in terms of booking decisions but apparently not as Bo Dallas, Viktor, and Roman Reigns won the newly created Raw 6-man tag titles.

The winner is based on their skills and stuff?

In simming matches their parameters aren't nearly as important as other factors, chiefly their AI. You can have people with all 10s and the best skills but if they never go for the win they never will.

Brock Lesnar left Raw...so I paid him an expensive fee to come in for a show to do his favorite thing: work with smaller guys. In this case PAC because both of them work the Strong style. They had a killer 100% match with PAC going over (H)

And then afterwards a bombshell dropped that Naito quit New Japan. I signed him immediately since his Showman style fits with my promotion. But I then got a note that wrestlers are now losing trust in me, presumably because Naito's default salary is wayyyy more than everyone else on the roster.  So now I think I need to give my whole roster a raise.

Thanks. I'm going to go investigate this now.
Wish I could figure-out the community creations system on PS4 FPWW.

Busch’s promoter tales may have sold me on that mode. Am I wrong thinking it was free for those of us on Steam?

I've been cordial with all of the other promotions, but figured the mode would be fun if I was at war with at least one of them - and given the SmackDown talent roster I decided that would be the most fun show to try to poach from.  AJ's morale was in the toilet - I offered him a juicy signing bonus and he came aboard.  (H)

Kenny needed a night off, so I held an 8-man tournament which in my mind was for #1 contendership.  Put AJ in the 8th spot in the bracket and imagined in my head that he was a surprise debut.  He ended up winning the thing and then the next month he finally ended Kenny's title reign at 15 months.

After loaning a few guys to them for shows here and there, NXT agreed to a cross-promotional show with me.  It's five interpromotional matches and you don't know who the other promotion is booking as opponents until you go into the event, with the exception of the title match.  Each promotion has to put a title on the line during the show.

Went 2-1 in non-title matches with Hangman going over Montez Ford, Kenny going over EC3, and Daniels losing to Matt Riddle.  PAC also did his part, retaining the AEW Title against Kassius Ohno.

I really wanted the NXT Title, so I sent Brock in there as a heavy hitter against the NXT Champion, War Raider Rowe (I refuse to re-name him to Erik).  It ends up somehow turning into a violent 20 minute brawl, most of it happening outside the ring.  Rowe takes one German too many and gets CRITICAL'd on the outside.  Brock btings the NXT Title to AEW and I now at long last have a second singles heavyweight championship. (H)

Have you considered doing a diary in the Cube? I like when you post in here but i think a diary of your journey would be neat.
