Some other notes:

Storylines last 4 weeks and only advance if you actually see the cutscene (meaning you have to run the match, not simulate).

The feud packs from Attitude Era mode only relate to Attitude Era star-specific cutscenes. There's apparently 50 of these, and 150 non AE-specific cutscenes.

Also the first month of Universe mode appears buggy in regards to storylines so I'd advise simulating the entire first month before adjusting everything to your liking.

With all this in mind I've actually had every match on the card be part of a storyline. You don't always get a cutscene, but the feud will still continue the following week and you'll get a cutscene at some points. Then if you wish you can always use up some non-title match slots on the PPV to have a blowoff match. Since I only have one brand I have about half a PPV card to include non-title feuds.
That's very helpful, thank you! I'll reset my Universe and try to make this happen.

Re: Official WWE 13 Thread

Decided to fire up the Universe after hearing you guys go on about it (haven't had the game long and played the AE pretty much solid) and I've had Triple H fight Lesnar on every single PPV and RAW since I started, one match from the ME. o_O

Re: Official WWE 13 Thread

^ And that's a prime example of why I always make my own feuds/matches. The laziness of the THQ computer...

Anyway I'm getting a little tired of seeing superstars getting busted open in pretty much every match I play, so I think I'll turn off blood - and only turn it back on for big personal feuds and big PPV matches.

It would be nice to have more, but then again I don't want cutscenes that aren't relevant to the feuds I'm having. For example, if I'm having a Punk/Ziggler feud I don't want John Cena to attack Punk after the match in a cut scene. You Understand? I love Universe Mode, it's what's given the games a ton of replay value for me in the last few years, and I find it fun when I make it MY Universe Mode and not what the computer thinks I want.

Nice. Fuck the overrated Attitude Era, I want a Ruthless Aggression themed game dammit! I want Evolution, 2005 Christian, Muhammad Hassan, Legend Killer Randy Orton, RVD, JBL, Eddie Guerrero, Carlito, 2005/2006 Edge the list goes on... I want my most fondest memories of wrestling in one game.

I take it you haven't watched anything they did between 98 and 2000?

Doing a ruthless aggression era game would be difficult, Benoit was all over that period. In fact he won the most memorable Rumble, and main evented the most memorable Wrestlemania of the period.

I have decided to reset my universe as I want to set up an NXT brand and have downloaded a number of CAW to add to it. Plus chucked Khali there so he stops feuding on Raw this universe. Also put all my divas on NXT and plan to have two ppv a month with one for NXT and the other for Raw and Smackdown. Also mixed up all the superstars evenely so have 30 on each brand

Re: Official WWE 13 Thread

I have. I've gone back and watched many PPV's and matches from the Attitude Era, I have a few DVD's from that time period too. It just didn't appeal to me as much as the Ruthless Aggression Era and I think it's overrated in general. Maybe it's because I didn't grow up watching the Attitude Era and thus I don't have the fond memories of watching it growing up, but whatever, not everyone is going to like the same things.

Sadly, you have a point about Benoit though.

On another note, I just discovered I have 132 posts in this thread. Anyone got any higher?

Re: Official WWE 13 Thread

I'm working on turning Lesnar into the top heel on my Universe. He had a main event match with Edge and before the match began Lesnar attacked Edge. So with me playing as Lesnar I made Edge a bloody mess (even though busting somebody open is extremely simple). Well I hit three F-5's onto Edge, canceled the pins each time. Ended up with me tackling Edge through the barricade and me walking back up the ramp for a double countout. You could hear the crowd booing Lesnar a majority of the match (minus the barricade spot, as they always seem to cheer for that).

Team Hell No are the new number one contenders for the tag team championships. So at King of the Ring they'll face off against Kofi Kingston & R-Truth. I believe Christian has turned into the number one contender for the television championship. As he has been battling with Justin Gabriel for the past two weeks. And each time Cody Rhodes is sitting ringside. So I'm guessing Christian/Rhodes at KOTR as well.

Raw hasn't been very exciting this month. Besides Undertaker '98-99 feuding with Shawn Michaels. Besides that the only feud really taking off right now is X-Pac and Godfather.

Re: Official WWE 13 Thread

I had the best match I've played so far last night in my AE Universe.

It was an EC with RVD(me), Godfather, X-Pac, Sabu, Batista, and someone else. I put it on EPIC and just had a massive match with heaps of exciting pin counters and near falls etc. I pinned Sabu with the 5 star towards the end, while a second after Godfather pinned X-Pac, then I flew off the top rope with a pinning crossbody onto Godfather for the 123. Awesome stuff.

Returned this game after a days worth of play.

Just not into WWE games as I was as a kid, unfortunately!
