So I've been talking to a few people on here and I was curious if anyone had some interest in doing some sort of tournament/game/etc. I've received two ideas recently, one from The Bad Guy and one from KingRo™.
The Bad Guy's idea: BTB NXT

Each week the rookies would be given an assignment of some sort to write and the veteran would work with the rookie to try and hone their skills. Then the judges would proceed to review each assignment and grade them. To make this work the best, no one would be eliminated from this but we would have standings. Obviously for this to work we'd need the same number of veterans and rookies but I'm sure we could figure that out, if someone wanted to take two rookies under their wing or something.
If I left something out or was wrong about something, Bad Guy will correct me later tonight but I think I got the premise down.
Now for KingRo™: (Just copied out of the PM he sent me)
Sign ups will be open for a week -- any booker can sign up. At the end of the week, the moderators and/or judges will select four team captains. The team captains will then over the course of an extra week draft members of the master sign up list until every booker has a team. If the numbers are uneven, the team with the lowest amount can select a mod/judge to aide them. Let’s say the teams are below; (excuse the generic ass names).
Team “Lightning”, led by Nige:
Team “Phenom”, led by Melvis
Team “Awesome”, led by KingRo
Team “Justice”, led by Brye
Every week for the amount of weeks each team has members (for instance, if the teams are split evenly with four bookers, the competition will last for four weeks,) we will post a new category of writing, and the captains will discuss amongst their team who will compete in that category. They will let us, the judges know, and we’ll post up the category. For example;
Week One: Wrestlemania Entrance (2,000 Word Limit) – ONE MEDAL
(Select A Superstar; Triple H, The Undertaker, John Cena, Randy Orton)
Team Lightning Rep.; Lotus
Team Phenom Rep.; Slevin
Team Awesome Rep.; Disciple
Team Justice Rep.; Orion’s Belt
The categories would be judged by which writer BEST wrote their respective category -- Not who wrote it the longest. Basically, whomever paints the best picture wins. So let’s say “Team Phenom” won the Week One competition, they would win a “medal” for their team. We’d update the first post with the medal count after every competition.
OVERALL MEDAL COUNT;
Team Lightning; 0 Team Phenom; 1 Team Awesome; 0 Team Justice; 0
Then we would move on to week two.
Week Two: Ladder Match (5,000 Word Limit) – TWO MEDALS
(Select A Match; Edge vs. Rey Mysterio, Shelton Benjamin vs. Kane, etc.)
Team Lightning; Nige
Team Phenom; Hank Hunt
Team Awesome; Murph
Team Justice; Superman
Okay, so this week, Awesome takes it home.
OVERALL MEDAL COUNT;
Team Lightning; 0 Team Phenom; 1 Team Awesome; 1 Team Justice; 0
So we move on to the following weeks doing the same thing.
Week Three: Interview Promo (3,000 Word Limit) – ONE MEDAL
(Select A Match; Kurt Angle, Alberto Del Rio, Damien Sandow, Chris Jericho)
Week Four; Legend vs. Current Superstar Match – TWO MEDALS
(Select Your Legend: Roddy Piper, Bret Hart, Sgt. Slaughter)
Then we get to the final week, where it’s down to the team captains.
Week Five; FOUR-MATCH RAW – THREE MEDALS
(Select Your “Main” Storyline; Love Interest, Team Rivalry, Returning Superstar)
Then it would be up to the team captains to assign a match/promo to their team’s members and collect them to post a RAW show. The best show by presentation and description would take home the medals.
Then it’s simple: The team with the most medals wins the tournament.
So obviously we have these two ideas. Feel free to comment on your thoughts on them and if you're interested. But also feel free to post your own idea. Remember, we can easily do more than one of these and if there's a bunch of good ideas, we can do all of them over time!
Also, would need some people to help me out with the judging and such. Preferably some people with experience judging before but anyone with some ambition works, tbh.
So let me know what you guys think.
