Thanks for getting the tournament set up! What about a championship belt for the winner? Not sure if those can be downloaded or what. Also note that the Fan Axxess DLC gives you more belts and designs.


There will be something. I haven't gotten a chance to get in and look at that yet (I'll do that tonight). But considering I already have the CAGWF logo in the game, I'm hoping it won't be ridiculously elaborate. I'll tell ya, doing CheapyD's head was almost more than I could chew. Wait...meh, I'll go with it.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

Having some connection issues with JP. One thing I just remembered to mention (not sure if this is his issue or not), but this game is horrible in terms of letting you know you need a compatibility pack. If you haven't gotten the Fan Axxess DLC, you'll have to download all of the free content before it will let you play with people who have it (which I do). The free content is as follows:

Undertaker Ministry Attire
Layla

Even after you download that, you have to back all the way out to the "press start" screen before it "activates" it on your system. It's incredibly unintuitive and annoying. But hopefully that will help people.

And here we go! First match in CAGWF history!



One thing I noticed is that the name plates didn't show up at all. And JP mentioned something about names being reversed. Not sure if there was server chaos going on or what, but definitely expect to see some weird things every once in a while. Vulcan, DarkTower, and myself played a Royal Rumble match a couple weekends ago, and though none of us dropped from the match, Vulcan was seeing entirely different outcomes than DarkTower and I were seeing (in terms of which wrestlers we were playing as and who had been eliminated)...and our match ended about 4-5 minutes before his did with a completely different winner. DarkTower and I were sitting there frozen until Vulcan's match ended, and then everything synced back up and put us back in the lobby together. It was completely nuts. I don't know how the game was even able to process all of that without exploding. These servers are unstable as hell.

Also, everybody should download the CAG Arena for their matches (assuming they can connect to the Community Creations). And please rate it if you don't mind. There's an achievement for that. Thanks! :D

Now that's odd as on my end it showed me doing that move to you and winning even the after match screen. The end of the game it just sat there waiting to go back to the room, almost like it had frozen. Not a big deal as I had expected to lose anyway because I was planning on getting a chair to do a DQ. Setup my guy as a real jackass. The other matches we played afterwards who did you see winning? It showed you winning the weapons match and me winning the inferno.

I think I figured the nameplate thing out. My brother had played on my system and had turned targeting on so the name I was seeing above my head was the character I was targeting. When I played a single players match on my system it showed the other persons name above my head as well. Turned that off and it disappeared.

I got the arena finally.

LMAO...what? The first match...that I recorded, you saw you winning? What in the holy Fuck is going on in this game? Like I said, it did feel like there was a point where you "stopped playing", and I was hesitant to keep pouring it on because I wasn't sure if your batteries died or what. But then your guy even taunted me, and I was like "Ok, maybe he's jobbing to me" lol. I can't even understand how this is possible. In any other one vs one online game...if it desyncs, the connection drops and you get some kind of error message. This game is batshit insane, lol.

As for the 2nd and 3rd matches, I got the same results as you. Now I wish I had captured the 2nd match even more...as that one was very back and forth, and I felt we both had a good amount of reversals. I guess it wouldn't have qualified for the tournament anyway since it was an extreme rules match...but at least that one seemed coherent all the way through.

EDIT - Looking at the video again, if I had to guess, was the match normal for you up until 6:14? That was the last thing you did to me, and then your guy just started standing there. Did you ever see me hit the RKO? The taunt comes after that...but it looked very random and out of place. So freaking weird.

I think those random things you saw might have been when I was trying to get out of the dead screen. That first match was all full of oddities. At least we know the other two were fine. Also we found a glitch that everyone needs to watch out for, so when a match is over compare results right after. I think a good indication would be if one user sees a frozen screen for some time after a match or it looks like someone is doing randomness in the ring.

I never saw the RKO you hit so I think you are right that was about when our connection did something really weird. That's about when I started seeing some odd items. Also explains why both of us did really good on a submission as neither of us were punching the buttons fast enough to counter it.

Definitely. If you want to try again tomorrow or Tuesday, I'd definitely be up for it. I wasn't sure what you were talking about at first when you were asking about redoing the match and what was wrong with the submissions. I thought maybe you were thinking my points were too high or something. But yeah, if we both saw different things, it makes a lot more sense, lol. No clue why the next two matches were fine though. Honestly, the weirdest thing about the "alternate timeline" is the game doesn't even start lagging or anything. It just randomly branches off on a completely different path. Definitely something people need to be mindful of.

No need to try again, I planned on getting DQ'ed eventually anyway, I just didn't want to do it too early. Ruins the allusion. When I put on the submission that led to the "win", I was trying to break it to do a finisher then to get the chair. It wouldn't let me break it so I just tried to finish it. I'm up for some random matches during the week. That goes for anyone, even if I'm not in WWE 13, just shoot me a message. I had a lot of fun, although I'm not a fan of Inferno matches as I suck at them. Yes I won the one we played but that was just luck on my part.

That kendo stick reversal was funny during the weapons match, I'd reverse when you were trying to hit me while on the ground then get popped as soon as I got up from the reversal.

After watching that match I am tempted to grab the game again and join in on this. I'm assuming you guys aren't taking this too seriously, which is totally fine with me. I would love to just goof around with some of you guys online in some different types of matches.

I highly doubt anyone is taking it super seriously. I'm just looking forward to after the championship is determined so we can start in on the screw jobs, 2 on 1s, weapons matches, dq's to hold onto the belt and so on. We can do those now, but in context of the CAGWF it'll be more entertaining. The weapons match we did right after the one that was recorded was much better and even more fun.

Took a personal day from work today, been playing WWE '13, and created some new attires for my character. Ha. I'm easily amused.

Do we have a smaller CAGWF logo that is more signature friendly? I stole the one from the title but I think it's a wee-bit large.

Yeah, I mean...I'd like people to take it seriously in the sense of actually making an effort and putting some thought and creativity into their characters, matches, etc. But I definitely also hope people don't take it seriously in the sense of feeling like they need to go undefeated, win all the time, and prove "how good they are" at WWE 13.

For me personally, I get such an odd feeling when I play this game. Like, I start out wanting to do well and show some skill...but I also want the match to be exciting. I don't want to just steamroll my opponent. I guess my hope is that the people who sign up for this league will be people who understand the point of professional wrestling.

I'm not sure how many people will be able to record their matches, but even if you can't share them with everyone in here, having a back and forth match and "allowing" your opponent to hit some crazy moves really makes it more enjoyable just for the people in the match. I'm hoping most everybody will get that...and of course, the people who don't will get fucked over tremendously, lol ;)

Also, I looked at the options for making a championship belt, and unfortunately, it seems pretty limited. The only options are to modify an existing belt by changing the plate and strap colors...and then changing what it's called. So, basically, I could make a green/orange or green/gray belt, and give it a name.

But the bigger problem is that it can't be uploaded or shared (that I'm aware of). So, I don't really know what purpose it would serve if not everyone had it on their game. I guess I could post the "formula" for how to make it and allow everyone to make it themselves (there is an achievement for doing that). But that's up to you guys if you want to go that route. It's too bad they won't let you use your logos on the belt and share it in the community creations though.

When I meant not seriously I meant not like winning at all costs and making it quick victories. I'm more interested in putting on a show, having some fun, and creating some stories. I mean already, we've got a wormhole dropping in an extra dimension screwing me out of the tournament. I will come back and destroy the champion. It. Will. Come! Different story than I was going for but I'll take it!

I was looking through the belt options too and was a little unimpressed. If we do the custom belt maybe base it off the million dollar belt. Never mind that belt, I was hoping you could change the color of the dollar signs and you cant. Damn.

Online matches have seemed more stable today compared to yesterday. Didn't have any trouble getting into games today. Don't know if that was because I reset my router or if playing a half hour before a PPV started the servers were hit harder yesterday.

I'm getting the same message now as well. A couple hours ago I was in without issue. That's an old message from before THQ went down for the count. Go here: https://www.2ksports...splay.php?f=211, for any information. They don't have a server status but you can see if others are having issues with the servers.

They are back up now it appears. I was able to get into a match.

I just recently found an amazing edit pack for Fire Pro Wrestling Returns, and it's just the cat's ass. Been playing that on local multiplayer and I like it even more than WWE '13. It's $10 to download on the PSN.

Now, back on topic- I will be available tonight if anyone wants to get some matches in, even during Raw. Raw starts at 6 P.M. here, but I almost always watch it later via DVR.

Yeah, I was looking at the Million Dollar Belt myself and was disappointed that the "plate color" doesn't apply to the giant ass platinum dollar signs along the front of the belt. It only changes the 2-3 dollar signs along the side. Then, the strap color hardly changes anything. Just really underwhelmed with the custom belt options. And like I said, since it's not something that can be shared, it makes it a bigger hassle for not a very big pay off.

Definitely not too late. Like Matt said, you won't be able to get in on the tournament to decide our first champion, but we'll be moving to a more traditional card setup after that.

No idea how long it'll be $29.99 at Amazon, but it's way more almost everywhere else (next cheapest I saw was $49.99 used at Best Buy). It's crazy how THQ going out of business gave this game such a bump in value even after 2K re-released it.

But yeah...we definitely did some hilarious shit tonight. Pro tip: you can lay a ladder on the ropes...and run up it and jump off. Insane moves and hilarity ensue. :lol:

Yeah.. I've been looking for a good reason to purchase this again for like the 4th time since it's release... this is it.

I like to lay the ladder against the ring from the outside, and run up it and dive into the ring onto someone. Never tried it while someone laid on a table.. I'm sure it's just as awesome as it sounds. :bouncy:
