Afraid I'm on TEW 2010. I've tried to go back to 05 since, but I just can't get into it. Same with EWR. On TEW2010 you have an option when you send workers to development to focus on particular things - improving rumble, technical, flying or entertainment skills, learning the basics better, removing ring rust, getting back into shape, and training other people. If you want your development system to stand a chance in 2010 I think you need some solid vets down there training the rookies.

And the WCW thing could be a lot of work, but I NEED a third brand right now. And not a joke brand either, a proper one. I've raided the indys of just about every talent I could possibly have a use for, and now I'm faced with a problem I've not experienced in TEW yet, but I used to in EWR almost every game. Everyone's just getting too over. I've got 7 upper-midcarders sitting there with popularity in the high 80s (of the group I'm talking about, the lowest is 86, the highest is 90). This has been born out of very little other than them being put into decent feuds with loads of dominant wins over nobodies and popularity-rated angles. Big rewards for relatively little skill or effort.

Thing is, they're all starting to get hacked off that I'm not using them right and want better pushes, and some of them (Christian, Matt Hardy, MVP) aren't exactly getting any younger. So I want a third brand with PPVs and a proper world title so everyone's got something to do. The cruiserweight thing is just a way of ensuring that the new brand takes off a bit, as its mid-card matches will easily be the best of my three shows. Besides, it gives me even more of an opportunity to choke out the market and make sure that TNA and ROH don't become too competitive.

Erm, it depends really. You've got to think about how much you enjoy the game and how much time you put into it. I'm a student with a half-empty course, no job, and extensive holidays - I get a lot of time to just bum around, and playing TEW is one of the ways I enjoy doing this. With the hours of enjoyment I get out of it it's paid for itself.

I don't know that there's any major changes which make it a totally different game to play, but there's a shedload of smaller ones which I reckon make it a far more enjoyable game than any of the others that I've played. Whilst the screens can still be a little unwieldy, a hell of a lot of the annoying features of the menus from TEW2005 are gone, and the drag and drop booking is a big help. Also, just little things I'd missed from EWR like title prestige, it was nice to see that again.

If you can get fanatical about detail whilst running your promotion (like I do) then it's just amazing. Everything from deciding on the focus of your workers in development, to building your own dojos or venues, to purchasing title belts. You can man-manage your merchandising to focus around particular workers and their merchandise. Events having their own prestige is good too, so you can watch as your own events gain more and more prestige over the years, getting bigger boosts when the event is really impressive.

Historical scenarios and real-world mods are getting to be great now, with things like national trends (when a particular kind of product is in vogue), narratives (a news report for say, the Global Economic Crisis and so the economy in the game goes down the tube), and workers can be given a set year in which to debut. So you can play a historical mod starting in 1989 and play through to 2010 and watch as all the workers from those years debut and move up (or not) in the world.

If you're into detailed booking of the matches then the "Dirt Sheet Report" gives you feedback detailing all of the elements which were either good or bad in a match or segment, meaning you can really start to target your booking. Also a whole load more options for when booking your matches including, at long last, the "Crazy Bump" option.

I dunno why I'm doing all this to be honest, I'm making such a cack-handed job of it.

http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum...ad.php?t=59395

That's a list of all the biggest changes in the game since TEW2008, but you can check out the demo of 2010 from the main site and see what you think.


Basically, I reckon if you only really want to be playing short term games with quick and easy booking, you may as well stick with 2005. But I like playing games for the long haul. My 1983 Death of The Territories game has now gotten to 1991, and I've enjoyed setting up my own promotion, booking workers very carefully in particular ways, pushing talent to the moon when their merchandise sold well, seeing my titles and events gain in prestige, etc. Those are the bits I enjoy about the game.




I realise you probably wanted a simple yes or no, so sorry about that. Essentially my answer is buy it if you enjoy the games and are gonna be playing on a routine basis. Don't bother if it's just a very casual thing that you're gonna play an hour or two once every 10 days or so then forget about it again for a while. Helpful, huh?

Thanks BK, karma'd.

Jack you almost sold TEW10 to me right there But I don't play it all that much and tbh I'm planning on spending £30 this Monday on several things so if I did purchase it, it wouldn't be for a few weeks. I may try out the demo and if I love that I will see.

Is there a real world mod for the demo?

Oh boy... I finally got TEW loaded up again and actually ran the show for Wrestlemania. Got an A overall so great show, and I had Angle go over Lesnar to win the title... only for Angle to mess his neck up during the match. Looks like I'll be having a world title tournament soon.

Just got through booking my No Surrender. A lot has changed and a lot is being heavily built on the road to Bound for Glory:

TNA
No Surrender 2010
Live from Atlanta, GA | 15,000 Sold Out Attendance

TNA World Heavyweight Championship | Six Ways To Glory Match
Brock Lesnar (c) defeated Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, Mr. Anderson, Jeff Jarrett and Rob Van Dam
at 31:04 via pinfall when Brock Lesnar pinned AJ Styles following an F-5

Steel Cage, Tables and Thumbtacks | Singles Match
Abyss defeated Jeff Hardy
at 21:18 via pinfall following a black hole slam

Grudge Match | Singles Match
Samoa Joe drew with Desmond Wolfe
at 30:00 when the time limit expired

TNA X Division Championship | Ultimate X Match
Douglas Williams (c) defeated Jay Lethal and Christopher Daniels
at 18:31 when Douglas Williams retained the belt

Extreme Rules | Singles Match
Kevin Nash defeated Mick Foley
at 16:44 via pinfall when Eric Young and Scott Hall interfered

TNA World Tag Team Championship | Tag Team Match
The Motorcity Machineguns (c) drew with The World's Greatest Tag Team
at 24:51 when the referee lost control

TNA Global Championship | Singles Match
Gregory Helms (c) defeated D'Angelo Dinero
at 13:19 when Gregory Helms used the ropes for leverage

Eric Young and Scott Hall defeated Tommy Dreamer and Rhino
at 09:09 when Eric Young put Rhino through a table

Tag Team Rankings | Tag Team Match
Beer Money Inc defeated The Latin American Xchange
at 16:30 when Robert Roode pinned Homicide following the use of a foriegn object

TNA Knockouts Championship | Three Way Dance
Mickie James defeated Trish Stratus and Tara
at 10:23 via pinfall

Tag Team Rankings | Four Way Tag Team Eilmination Match
The Briscoe Brothers defeated Team 3D, Generation Me and The Hooligans
at 14:32 via pinfall

X Division Rankings | Singles Match
Bryan Danielson defeated Jerry Lynn
at 10:11 when the referee stopped the match


Notes:

- Before signing Brock Lesnar, Rob Van Dam was the World Champion and was in an intense rivalry with Jeff Jarrett, which proceeded in a Steel Cage Match for the championship at Hard Justice. Brock Lesnar at the time was suspended along with his manager Osamu Alejandro (Armando Estrada) for their consistant attack on members of the TNA roster. The iMPACT after, Brock Lesnar and Alejandro ruined Sting's retirement ceremony attacking him when Rob Van Dam made the save. Rob Van Dam put his TNA World Championship on the line later than night, which Brock Lesnar won.

- As mentioned above Sting retired, and his last match was at Hard Justice again long time rival Ric Flair in a match that shocked the world (got a B+ Rating) in which Sting prevailed. Also among retirements was Hulk Hogan but nothing changed as Hogan was already on commentary.

- The Card for BFG is shaping up to be;

Angle vs Lesnar - World Championship Match
AJ vs. Anderson - Feud Ender
Wolfe vs Joe - 60 Min Ironman
Guns vs. WGTT - Ladder Match

Wait, did you play it off as Angle messed up his neck, or did that really happen? Because if so, that's tremendously ironic.
