Some people use it, others don't. It's not really a need for anything, it just kind of gives context to the overall match, especially if it's in recap form. Just lets the readers know how long the match lasted for their own benefit.

I know there's plenty of variables in that, but just want a general gauge on when people think they've seen enough of a champion.
As cp954 said, you answered your own question with that statement. It all depends on the character, what's going on in the thread at that time, and sometimes, it's just a matter if whether or not it's convenient!

That's what I've got planned, but I'm not too sure if its the right size. If anyone could fill me in on this, I'd be grateful.
Go for the quarters, semis and final on ppv. I never liked the idea of just having the semi finals and finals only on ppv. They did this in 1996. An 8 man tournament for the ppv is fine. As for the qualifiers, up to you if you want to go with a big 32 man tournament or just 16. Very soon I'm also going to start a King of the Ring tournament and I have the task of rebooking the worst King of the Ring ever which in real life was won by King Mable lol. When i get around to booking my KOTR tournament, the qualifying matches will take place on Raw and Superstars. The quarter finals, semi finals and final will all be on the same night for the ppv. I've got two options on who I want to win the tournament but still going back and forth deciding on who should i go with as the winner. Still thinking on who needs the win more lol. Will make the final decision once I've done my In Your House ppv.

Default Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Random question in an attempt to create some discussion, and it is a rather simple question -

How do YOU plan your feuds/storylines/angles?

What I mean by that is is there a set way you plan your feuds or does it just depend? Do you think of they payoff and book backwards from that payoff to the beginning of the feud? Do you do the opposite, begin a feud and then plan up to the pay off? Do you simply think of two guys you want to feud with each other, create a feud between them and make it up as you go along? Do you think of someone you want to push and just think of the most logical, interesting and/or dynamic way to go about it?

To put the question in to context. Say you started a thread after a Wrestlemania (which a lot of people tend to do) and you are planning your PPVs up until Summerslam (which a lot of people tend to do) - Do you create the PPV cards in chronological order - Backlash to Judgement Day to whatever - and end up at Summerslam? Or do you plan your Summerslam card and then work backwards? Do you do a bit of both? Do you have a general idea of the main events/who you want to push at/by Summerslam, but plan in chronological order.

Has you planning style changed as you have grown and developed as a booker and as a writer? If so, how was it before and how has it changed in to what it is now?

I think it'll be interesting to see how planning techniques/preferences/styles differ from thread to thread and booker to booker.

It varies a bit. I could pick two very good people who could have a good match, IE. Matt Cross and Chris Jericho or two people that are similar to test each other out. But to planning, I generally get the time for it to end in mind, and in most cases the finish and major plot points with adding a bit here and there. Then after that feud, I like to have the next person for each pre-planned.

I personally plan long term and have feuds lined up for the majority a fair bit in advance. I'll generally say wrestler X and wrestler Y are gonna feud, then I'll decide on a storyline. However, there are times when a certain character will have a huge say in what direction/feud/storyline I go with.

For example, a guy like Muhammad Hassan, you've got an instant storyline there with somebody or Punk with his Straight Edge ways so I guess it does depend on who you're working with and what's available but for me personally, I plan it all out and then go from there.

My answer? It depends who it is and what kind of importance the feud has. If it's something like a comedy feud, I let it run it's course and end it in an appropriate way rather than plan it for weeks on end. If it's a feud for the main belt, I usually have a finish in mind and build towards that finish.

Of course, this has probably never been seen in any of my threads but, I have them in stuff I've never posted. So yeah.
