Hello, everyone! And welcome to the official thread for the brand new WWE 13 League, the Cheap Ass Gamer Wrestling Federation. The idea behind this league is just to enjoy some good, old professional wrestling, friendly competition, work some angles, and have a few laughs along the way. This is really starting from the ground up. So, if you've got ideas, let's hear them.

The basic thought is to have everyone use created wrestlers. I know that opens up some pretty crazy ratings problems. So, if we wanted to put a stat cap of some kind (my first thought is a total number of allowable points across all the attributes. But more research needs to be done there) or have any other restrictions, we can kick ideas around.

As for people "playing fairly"...well, this is professional wrestling, after all. While, it will be expected for members to treat each other respectfully, however you want to control your character and your CAGWF "persona", that's your business. Anybody who abuses tactics or gets carried away is always subject to a good screw job, haha. So, hopefully that will serve as a good system for people keeping themselves in check.

In that same light, we're not going to do anything with making match outcomes predetermined. The combatants can battle it out, and whoever wins, wins. Obviously, there are more ways to have fun in pro wrestling than just by winning the match. And again, anybody who becomes "unbeatable" is just setting themselves up for trouble, lol.

Other than that, just have fun with it. With all the different match types and special referee options, there are a lot of ways to have a good time with this game (and believe it or not, the servers have been surprisingly stable and smooth lately). And if anybody has the ability to record their matches, that's an even better way to share the fun with other members.

Feel free to sign up, give suggestions, or just spitball ideas, and we'll start putting things together.

Creating Your CAW
Please sign your wrestler up by posting the following info and abiding by the guidelines listed below:

Name:
Age:
Height:
Weight:
Hometown:

If you want to give them a backstory, say whether they're a face or a heel, etc., please feel free. It's all up to you. You're going to get out of this what you put into it.

Also, please list your XBL gamertag so we all know how to get in touch with you.

Guidelines for making your CAW
* Attribute point total cannot exceed 1180 (gives you around a 92 OVR)
* Charisma/Tag Team attribute must be at least a 65
* All other attributes must be at least a 40

We need to do some kind of tournaments to determine champions (if we get enough people). Then we can use tournaments to determine number 1 contenders and hold PPVs lol.

There's so many different match types in this game, there are a lot of ways we could do it. I mean, there's a 30 man Royal Rumble that we could use to decide the first champion, or a tournament like you said. Lots of options. 3 of us played last night, and honestly, having fun and doing ridiculous shit in the matches was more entertaining than who won or lost.

It'll be an interesting balance, but as long as the servers are reliable (which even 2K said they would continue to support WWE 13), there's definitely some fun to be had. And it seemed like a good way to spend the summer between Madden leagues, NHL, etc. We've had a UFC league last year (our 3rd year of doing that), but without a new game coming out this year, there was definitely a spot open for some wrestling mayhem.

I did something like this way back with Fire Pro on the Saturn, it was a lot of fun for awhile, I might at least be up for participating. Could we have more than one CAW? I usually have 2-One I base on myself who's basically a cowardly heel and a guy who is basically a blend on Sting and Ken Shamrock.

It was basically Gary's idea. And there probably won't be a lot going on this summer gaming-wise with Madden leagues winding down, NHL 12 match ups being harder to find, and no new UFC game (I had even wondered if UFC 3 would be fun to play again). Just seemed like a good time for this.

Oh, cool. I was just shocked to see this, and I was curious. I saw you guys on NHL 12 last night. Had I known you'd end up playing WWE, I would have stayed on. So I would definitely be up for some exhibition matches with you guys and whoever else joins. It will be nice having some human competition. The AI is too easy to beat. But crazy stuff like TLC and Hell in a Cell is always fun with a small group. Maybe tomorrow since we're watching UFC tonight.

You know I'm down. We played quite a few matches last night testing everytyhing out and man oh man it was a blat NOT even wrestling. The one thing I would like is a ref every match or so that is bias, unless somebody just spams something and the ref could step in. I also would like to use this thread for promos and what not.

man when i first saw this i though someone was bring back the old idea of wrestling games like they did back in the late 90s early 2000.... where there was a list of moves you had to pick each week and each move had points on them and whoever had the most points at the end of the match won....

those were fun games



ALSO cant find this info anywhere BUT I would swear there used to be a wresting card game base on von erich card base game back in the 80s BUT cant find any info on it today

NEVERMIND FOUND IT

loved playing that game..> WWE needs to redo it and bring something like that out today or bring back WITH ATTITUDE online game

Ok, I did some quick research this morning, and as I'm sure everyone is aware, John Cena has the highest overall rating in the game at a 96. I took a look at his attributes to see what his point total is, and it adds up to 1210 points. While the game does have natural stat caps built in (ie. strike power can't be above 90), it is possible to make a wrestler with a 100 overall by maxing out all attributes.

In MY opinion, everybody having guys rated 100 is pretty lame...as it makes you too good at everything. So, we could either use Cena's total as a maximum or we can just put caps on the individual attributes (say like 5 below the maximum), that way nobody is ridiculously overpowered. Feel free to give feedback on how you guys would like to do it.

This being said without me turning the game on and looking at things, but I like the idea of just having a max number of points, such as 1210 like you suggested. Then we can specialize our characters in ways we choose. For example, if someone wants to be a submissions wrestler, they can specialize as such.

I agree with Superstar. I already created Gail Pennyfeather in the game for use in Universe Mode, so I have him for use in the league.

I think it would be cool if we all created our own finishers as well. In addition to that, we can create custom belts and a CAG themed arena. Only one person needs to do that and the rest can download the custom arena. There are even achievements for creating, uploading, and using all the custom stuff.

Well, this is a road we went down with the last UFC game. A points cap of 1210 would allow you to make a really damn good wrestler (like I said, should be around 96 overall). If we really wanted to make people choose what areas they put their points into, we could lower that number. The problem that comes with that though is people playing high/low and maxing out certain areas, but leaving something like Charisma or Tag Team at a 20.

The way to combat this would be to put minimums on those categories. Running through the wrestlers in the game (only looked at the current Superstars), the lowest Charisma is 65 (Great Khali) and the lowest Tag Team is 70 (Alberto Del Rio). So, if we just went with the lower number and said neither Charisma or Tag Team can be below a 65, that would probably work.

Looking at the other attributes, they should all have an effect on how you perform, so it wouldn't make sense to keep any of the others too low. But just to be safe, nobody in the game has an any attribute lower than 40 (Great Khali and Mark Henry agility, lol), so we could put that as a minimum on all the other categories.

Like I said before, the main point in this thing is to have fun...so it may seem tedious to regulate attribute ratings like this. But it also doesn't take much for someone to spoil that fun because that want to prove how big their e-peen is by destroying everybody. And really...it does make sense for our CAWs to be on the same level as the real wrestlers in the game.

So...all that said, my proposal for CAWs would be this:

* Attribute point total cannot exceed 1180 (gives you around a 92 OVR)
* Charisma/Tag Team attribute must be at least a 65
* All other attributes must be at least a 40

Thoughts?

Shhh!!! Already on it, lol. ;)

EDIT - Ooooook...maybe forget that idea of me being already on making a CAG arena, lol. I talked about the idea with some friends this weekend, but I just looked, and apparently, you have to draw all your logos from scratch (or download already made ones from the Community). I thought it would be awesome to have a big CheapyD head in the middle of the ring, but I am no where near artistic enough to draw it from scratch. If anybody wants to make a CheapyD head logo...or even a full on CAG arena, be my guest. I'd be happy to contribute ideas, but if I don't have Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro at my disposal, my skills are severely limited, haha.

Sounds like a good idea! Under those rules, you can still freely specialize in anything and still be fair. Hopefully everyone takes it to heart that this is all for fun. It may be just me but it seems like people would take a wrestling game more light hearted then they do football or anything, considering wrestling is already over the top \ fun.

Yeah, but then a handful of people get a ridiculous advantage, while others basically have no chance of ever winning. It's not like Madden or something where you can improve and grow your team/character.

In general, I'd hope the CAG community would view it that way. But sometimes these leagues pull people in just from Google searches. And then you get some 14 year old kid who knows nothing about CAG just beating the living shit out of everybody. I at least feel better having a few safeguards.

If anybody has a created wrestler (or wants to make one) under the posted guidelines, feel free to get started and post their info. Get into it as much as you want. Basic info would be...

Name:
Age:
Height:
Weight:
Hometown:

But if you want to give them a backstory, say whether they're a face or a heel, whatever. It's all up to you. This is why we had a lot of fun with the UFC leagues in the past...it's much more open and flexible than a league for other sports. You don't have to worry about people dropping or losing interest. If you stop showing up, you don't get matches, and you most definitely won't get title shots. You're going to get out of this what you put into it.

Also, please list your XBL gamertag so we all know how to get in touch with you.
