PART 1                               
Over the years there has been a few threads talking about what people would like to see in a follow up to WWE All Stars. So forgive me for starting another.

Before I get into ideas, let me address the why or the why bother. Like many of you I have played quite a bit of wrestling games over many console generations and of course have many good memories from them. I was always amazed at how things advanced with the graphics, and moves, and gameplay and the amount of detail they could pack into these games, I was always excited to see what's next. I, like many creators, would immerse myself into the create modes pouring over details always looking to push the limits of my creativity.

But then something happened, I don't know if it was all the times I was falling asleep while creating or even during matches while I was playing with friends. It just wasn't fun anymore, developers were not trying anything new anymore, they had settled into a rut made empty promises and have failed to do more than take away and tack back on again. Kind of like pin the tail on the donkey, except we're the ones left feeling like a$$es for literally buying into it. Its been that way for what 15-20 years now (I'm guessing), that's almost twice the length of time John Cena has been competing and look how divided the crowds are for him. Anyway I'm starting to rant I'll stop.

When All Stars came out it was a breath of fresh air for many people. It gave us something different. The main series gives us plenty such as.

  • Large rosters
  • In depth movesets
  • The ability to run the WWE Universe
  • Recaptured moments of History
  • In depth creation modes (for the most part)
  • Loads of commentary
  • And I'm sure you could list many more things.

But a wrestling simulation can only do so much, and Wrestling/Sports Entertainment is also very different from other sports simulations. Being an individual a personality, and standing out as different is key to your success in wrestling, the only team is in tag teams and even they need personality. This is what's lost in a simulation. Every Superstar you cheer for and Legend you love stands out for a reason, it could be that they're outstanding in the ring, or their character is larger than life or one that you identify with, or maybe it's the legacy they left on the business. You know all of their catchphrases and probably own at least one of their t-shirts.
 
All Stars took steps toward capturing the individuality of these performers. Each character felt different, they had captured their personality and tried to capture their in-ring styles. It felt like the developers were true wrestling fans and wanted to make the wrestlers as they should be--larger than life. So how can they do better? I will share some ideas next.
 
PART 2                                        
First some of the simpler stuff.
Voices
Wrestler voices at character select screen and for some taunts. How easy yet how awesome would that be?
Audience chants with some taunts or when your character is performing well.
Ex. You can’t see me, This is awesome, New Day Rocks
 
For the spammers and game breakers.
Fixes
Taunting multiple times outside of the ring, results in loss of meter as the fans boo your performance.
Spamming attacks repeatedly can also result in loss of meter as the fans boo your performance.
 
Game Play Advancements & Changes
Opponent standing on top turnbuckle.
Top Turnbuckle moves and counters, move beyond tossing your opponent off of the top turnbuckle and countering with an elbow drop to the leg (executed by tapping quick grapple). Holding the quick grapple will initiate a top turnbuckle grapple, while grappled tap another button to execute different moves, which of course can be countered and countered again. Available moves should at least be based on your wrestlers class.
 
Rope and Apron Moves
Apron strikes, grapples and counters added. Signature moves should not be the only time the ropes are used. Class based moves should be enough variety here with a few special exceptions, also would add another layer of strategy to the game.
 
A variety of springboard and over the top rope dives added. (Note: Edge was the only character in the game to flip dive "tope con hilo"  over the top rope, everyone else went through the ropes. Kinda strange that none of the Acrobats were given something different.)

Friendly Fire On.
Miss your opponent with that Superkick, Clothesline, or Brogue Kick and your tag team partner was behind him, I’m afraid he’ll get some Bad News. Brock Lesnar giving a tour of suplex city, watch out because bodies can hit more than just the floor. Pure Chaos!
 
Class specific counters, including some trademark ones.
 
Tag Team Mechanics
Ability to hold an opponent in a move until your partner can follow up with a move, reversible of course.
Ability to Irish Whip your partner
Ability to launch your partner (All big men and other powerful wrestlers)
Ability to jump off of your partners shoulders (Acrobats)
Will expand on this later, open to some suggestions for certain. Once I start delving into the roster details, I'll say more.
 
Signatures
Signatures are now selectable though to avoid balance issues striking signatures are limited to one per move set, unless the moveset originally allowed for more.

Signatures can now be selected as Finishers multiplying the possibilities for character creation.
 
Reversal points are possible now during Signature and Finisher animations, reversals require 2 stars. (I don't know how many times in the demo when I was caught in a Rey Mysterio signature I would try to time the reversal mid move hoping to Powerbomb him out of it. Of course I found out later that you could only reverse signatures before they made contact. A slow motion reversal to Powerbomb would have been awesome, but a slow motion reversal to a slow motion signature would have been epic.)
 
Like finishers, grapple signatures can catch an airborne opponent when timed correctly. This makes sense especially if they are selectable as finishers now.
 
Unique abilities that allow the wrestlers to behave like their real life counterparts. Some always active others only temporarily. This is where I think it could get really interesting, more on this later.
 
Expanded Classes
Classes have been expanded to allow for greater variation in styles. These are not necessarily full classes unto themselves (they could be) but could provide greater variation when making the roster, again to fully showcase how unique (special) an individual wrestler can be.

Submission
Trade hold for hold, lock in submissions for longer. Temporarily nullifying features of the other classes. For example the speed and aerial ability of high flyers is reduced. Longer submissions can also lower the opponent’s momentum. Submission chains, can even link to Finishers. Tapout Finishes

Showman
Feed off the crowd and play mind games with your opponents. Taunting raises momentum faster than normal. Next move after taunt does double damage or if reversed does double damage to the taunter, cancels after double reversal.

Dirty
Ultimate in heel tactics. Eye gouges, face rakes, foot stomps, boxing the ears makes it difficult for your opponent to counter your next move. Low blows slows movement speed and makes it difficult to kick out of pins. Remove ring post pads for additional damage.
 
Next up the thing everyone has an opinion on the Roster.
 
PART 3                                        
Rosters are difficult to construct because there is always somebody's favorite left out, and/or circumstances and relationships with the performers and the company are subject to change. Also how much is too much (I'm certain mine is a bit too many, but I'd rather shoot high and trim back) even as of this writing its still difficult to nail down who I think should make the cut, which is probably why developers cut out the things they are unsure of.
 
The original game had an excellent roster and rightfully the vast majority would make the cut into the new game, but some for obvious reasons could not be used at this time. I am actually kind of glad they had not made a sequel already, because I think the working roster they had then was fairly thin, but now...business is picking up. So to begin.

Other names I would have liked to include or thought to include but this is already at 90 characters.

  • Dean Malenko I would consider him for WCW he would make an excellent grappler with good speed.
  • Raven I think he could be an interesting brawler with some hardcore tendencies.
  • Rikishi another victim of the cuts but with the available roster his moveset should be well covered.
  • Ron Simmons perhaps the most deserving option for the WCW pack.
  • Shelton Benjamin is one of my favorite performers and I could only imagine what his signature would look like, leaping to the top rope to belly-to-belly suplex one of those pesky high flyers. A great high flying Grappler himself.
  • Tyler Breeze cut from my NXT pack.
  • Zack Ryder cut from my Fan Favorites pack.
  • Tajiri I guess I could have made an ECW pack too...lol

Using the classes from the last game the final roster would look like this.

Thoughts on the roster?
I will break down some of these characters next and share some ideas on how they could play after all that was part of the reason for quite a few of these choices.
 
PART 4                                     
I realize it may be a great task to create unique abilities for individuals in a game of this sort but borrowing a few ideas from other games could go a long way toward giving each performer a unique feel. Also in order to prevent a character from becoming over-powered, some abilities are only temporarily activated whereas others are always active.
 
Always active abilities usually reflect a characters in-ring style. Temporary abilities usually are reflective of a unique quality a character is known for. So in no particular order...

His strong offensive mobility allows him to take the fight to his opponents and keep the pressure on.

Big Man

Bam Bam makes his way into All Stars 2 ready to make an impact. Though he is the smallest of the Big Men in the game he is a unique hybrid. Bam Bam amazed audiences with uncanny agility for a man his size, and true to form the Flamed Wonder breaks the mold in All Stars. Bam Bam's combos often lead to stuns giving him more time to set up slingshot and high risk opportunities, he also uses his famous cartwheel to dodge and escape certain moves. Bam Bam's here to make a splash a nuclear one.

Ohhh All Stars fans don't you dare be sour, prepare to Feel the Power, its a new game yes it is. One look at Big E and its obvious that the man is a powerhouse what is unexpected is how quick and light on his feet he is, allowing him to deliver crushing collisions with surprising speed. When appealing to the crowd his dancing allows him to Feel the Power charging up his next strike for double damage.
 
Big Show
World's Largest Athlete
7'0"  450 lbs

Charge Move- Harlem Sidekick
Brawler
       Active Ability- Harlem Heat
Booker T always brought the heat as a performer, working his way through the tag team ranks and into the World Title picture winning the prize not once, not twice, but 5 times. No matter where he may have begun his career, so long as he could fight for that opportunity it was always within reach. That reach is the advantage that Booker T has as a Brawler in All Stars 2, his long limbs expand his strike zone, making it tough for opponents to get in and tough to get away. Now can you dig that sucka?
 
Bray Wyatt
New Face of Fear
6'3"  285 lbs
Snake Bight, Florida
 
Finisher- Sister Abigail
Signatures

  • Tossing Suplex
  • Ura-nage (counter)
  • Running Senton
  • Flying Back Elbow

Charge Move- Counter Lariat (can be stored)
Brawler
      Active Ability- Eater of Worlds
Bray Wyatt is an elusive figure in the WWE universe, he does not fit any traditional mold. He has an appeal to the darker parts of humanity, yet remains unpredictable in his direction whether he is singing to the fireflies or spider walking in the ring. Bray's style in the ring is also chaotic and deceptively quick, like a human wrecking ball. When Bray runs the ropes he rapidly gains velocity and can move at a speed unexpected for a man his size. His counter lariat when stored can be unleashed when escaping a grapple attempt, with his back turned, and even from a stunned state. The monster has arrived in All Stars...run.
 
Bret Hart
The Hitman
6'0"  235 lbs
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
 
Finisher- Sharpshooter
Signatures

  • Spike Piledriver
  • Snapmare to Sleeper
  • Bulldog

  • Kimura Lock
  • Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex (can be used at the end of a grapple chain)
  • Double Powerbomb to Spiral Bomb (catching)
  • Release German Suplex (can be used at the end of a grapple chain)

Charge Move- Lunging Knee Strike
       (Can hit opponents in the sitting and hands and knees position)
Grappler
       Temporary Ability- Beast Mode
A powerhouse Grappler with brutal strikes, Brock's grapple chains involve tossing and bouncing his opponents of the mat. His raw power is astonishing as Brock can throw Big Men around as easily as Michael Cole. At the cost of 3 stars Brock can also unleash Beast Mode, for a short period of time every counter and grapple he makes will result in an automatic suplex which are difficult to counter.

 

Cesaro
The King of Swing
6'5"  232 lbs
Lucerne, Switzerland
 
Finisher- Neutralizer
Signatures

  • Very European Uppercut (catching)
  • Cesaro Swing (once spin has started it will hit anyone standing near it)
  • Tilt-a-Whirl Backbreaker (catching)
  • Super Cesaro Bomb

Charge Move- Charging European Uppercut
Grappler
       Active Ability- Swiss Superman
An extraordinary Grappler who performs seemingly impossible feats of strength combined with a near infinite technical moveset. Cesaro not only has lengthy grapple chains, but he can start them from ground holds and catching grapples. Add in signatures that can catch you in midair and its clear to see that Cesaro can get it done in the ring.
 
Chris Jericho
Y2J
6'0"  227 lbs
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
 
Finisher- Codebreaker
Signatures

  • Lionsault (can pin)
  • Liontamer (can tap out)
  • Walls of Jericho (can catch and roll through) (can tap out)
  • Multiple Powerbombs
  • Triangle Dropkick

Charge Move- Move from original game
Grappler
      Active Ability- Lionheart
The Ayatollah of Rock n Rolla has returned to the roster of All Stars 2. Jericho retains much of his same moves and combos from the original game melding grapple chain combos with running and springboard moves, with a few new variations. Updates have been made to his signatures too, allowing the Lionheart to be the Best in the World at what he does, giving him more options for finishing off his opponents.
 
Christian
Captain Charisma
6'1"  212 lbs
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
 
Finisher- Killswitch
Signatures

  • Falling Inverted DDT
  • Back Standing Rope Choke
  • Tornado DDT
  • Back Kick to Jumping Sunset Flip

Charge Move- Fisherman Suplex (can chain into Cloverleaf or roll into pin)
Grappler
      Active Ability- Instant Classic
Back for more than just one more match, Christian is ready to put on more than just a peeps show. Captain Charisma is a competitor who not only excelled in the tag team division but thrived in singles competition as well, always displaying a great understanding of how use an opponents strengths against them and often narrowly escaping the clutches of defeat with a well timed reversal. Whether on the mic or in the ring Christian is always ready to put on an Instant Classic. In All Stars 2 Christian has the ability to grapple chain, but unlike most other grapplers, Christian begins his grapple chains only when reversing maneuvers. Christian can also climb to the top turnbuckle similar to an Acrobat, and when paired up with the right partner he gains some Showman traits for the benefit of those with flash photography.
 
Daniel Bryan
The Yes Man
5'10"  210 lbs
Aberdeen, Washington
 
Finisher- Busaiku Knee Kick
Signatures

  • Yes Kicks (can hit 2 opponents simultaneously)
  • Flying Goat
  • Cattle Mutilation
  • Yes Lock

Charge Move- Surfboard (can grapple chain)
Grappler
       Active Ability- G.O.A.T
Daniel Bryan is one of the greatest technical wrestlers to ever set foot in a WWE ring. Though smaller in stature than many, he is well versed in submissions and strong martial strikes, he has the ability to bring even the most imposing foe to his knees. Perhaps his strongest weapon though is his heart, with amazing resolve and an indomitable fighting spirit, he has captivated the WWE universe. In All Stars 2 when the fans are cheering Daniel Bryan his momentum and star meters rise at a faster rate. He can also reverse grapples and counter strikes into his grounded signatures.
 
Davey Boy Smith
The British Bulldog
5'11"  256 lbs
Manchester, England
 
Finisher- Running Powerslam
Signatures

  • Arm Trap Headbutts
  • Delayed Vertical Suplex (catching)
  • Military Press Slam
  • Snapmare into Running Shoot Kick to face

Charge Move- Running Clothesline
Grappler
      Active Ability- Union Jack Strength
A true powerhouse wrestler with surprising speed and agility. Bulldog could easily slam men much larger than him, yet had the technical prowess to escape a wristlock with the speed and maneuvers of a luchador. In All Stars 2 Davey is one of the few men in the game that can lift nearly anyone. He can also delay how long he maintains a strong grapple and some of his signatures making it difficult for his opponent to time their reversals. His grapple chains consist of technical moves that lead to power moves with options for pinning combinations.
 
Dean Ambrose
The Lunatic Fringe
6'4"  225 lbs
Cincinnati, Ohio
 
Finisher- Dirty Deeds
Signatures

  • Rope Tied Dropkick
  • Pendulum Lariat
  • Lunatic Punch Combo
  • Diving Elbow Drop (does area of effect damage)

Charge Move- Flailing Thesz Press
Brawler
      Active Ability- Un-stabled
Unpredictable, uncontrollable, unstable. Words that fittingly describe Dean Ambrose a man who flourishes amidst chaos, which he usually is the cause of. Dean's style in the ring is animated and erratic, every movement he makes is true to character. A true Brawler, versed in Submission holds, with a hardcore tendency to throw his body into the fray. All Stars 2 captures that wild, flailing style of the Lunatic Fringe, leaving opponents guessing as to what he's gonna do next.
 
Diamond Dallas Page
The King of Bada-Bing
6'5"  248 lbs
The Jersey Shore
 
Finisher- Diamond Cutter
Signatures

  • Trip to the Diamond Mine
  • Diamond Clash
  • Diamond Bomb
  • Double Chickenwing Belly to Belly

Charge Move- Discus Clothesline
Grappler
       Active Ability- BANG!
DDP is a wild and energetic performer in the ring, with great Brawling skills, a vast array of grappling moves, and a gifted Showman. DDP at his best had the crowds eating out of his hands just waiting to see when, where, and how he would bring the BANG and hit the Diamond Cutter. DDP showcases his versatility in All Stars 2, unique to him as a Showman DDP can Taunt Cancel, into counters, strong strikes, and the Diamond Cutter. Just because he is entertaining the crowd and building meter, doesn't mean he's defenseless.
 
Diesel
Big Daddy Cool

  • Standing Super Kick

Charging Move- Jumping DDT (can catch airborne & top rope opponents)
Grappler
        Active Ability- Show Over
Never one to hold anything back, Dolph does everything he can and gives everything he has to steal the show. A Grappler with the speed of an Acrobat. His Standing Super Kick is short on range but fast enough to make it a good weapon whenever he's under pressure. Whenever Dolph taunts he gains a temporary boost to his movement speed allowing him to showoff at a pace few can keep up with.
 
Doink
6'0"  243 lbs
Parts Unknown
 
Finisher- Whoopie Cushion
Signatures

  • Stump Puller
  • Kneeling Reverse Chinlock to Neckbreaker
  • Half Nelson Body Scissors
  • High Angle German Suplex (pin)

Charge Move- Bag O Tricks (Powder Toss- stun, Banana Peel- knock down, Joy Buzzer- counter)
Grappler
      Active Ability- Practical Choke
Though looking the part of a clown, Doink was no joke in the ring. A highly skilled ring technician who could tie his opponents up in torturous submissions that were no laughing matter. Not one to be above taking a shortcut Doink made regular use of foreign objects in his matches inflicting pain to his pleasure. In game Doink's grapples chains though short can almost always end in a submission hold.

Titus O'Neil is an outspoken man of action inside and outside the ring. He is equally impressive as a humble humanitarian, as he is an imposing presence in the ring. One who can easily manhandle opponents with his formidable strength tossing them aside effortlessly and often overpowering them with just one arm. In game Titus can shrug off some of his opponents strikes making it difficult to knock him down, also his strong strikes have a random opportunity for armor allowing the move to continue even if hit during the strike. Yes the Real Deal's bite is just as big as his bark.

Ultimo Dragon was a major part of bringing the Cruiserweight style to the fore, with an incredible blend of styles and the innovation of maneuvers that would define a generation. Not as speedy or high flying as other acrobats but dangerous nonetheless, Ultimo has a full arsenal of strike combos, grapple chains and submission techniques.

Parts Unknown
 
Finisher- Gorilla Press Slam
Signatures

  • Choke Lift Toss
  • Top Rope Double Axe Handle
  • Flying Shoulder Block
  • Top Rope Splash

Charge Move- Warrior Run
Brawler
      Active Ability- Warrior Spirit
The Ultimate Warrior was the embodiment of energy and intensity both in the ring and out. Never wasting a moment from the second his music hit. Always a fired up competitor he seemed to never tire out and shared a symbiotic relationship with the crowd. In All Stars 2 the Ultimate Warrior retains his signatures but gains a new ability from the Warrior Spirit. Running costs Warrior no meter so he can run at any time, when he charges up his Warrior Run this ability is amplified. As he runs in place he has one hit of armor so he can not be easily knocked out of his battle charge, when fully charged Warrior dashes quickly in the direction he's facing. If he does a strike, back body drop, or Flying Shoulder Block signature while running he can choose to continue his run and do a follow up move, he can get up to 3 hits or throws before the effect needs to be recharged. If you charge his Warrior Run when hitting his finisher it will follow up with a running splash for the victory.

Charge Move- Charge Punch
Big Man
      Temporary Ability- Dead Man Walking
The Cornerstone of the WWE has arisen once again to lay to rest all who would stand before him. Though now classified as a Big Man, The Undertaker has kept much of his excellent play style intact but the Lord of Darkness has some new tricks available. His Hells Gate now functions as a proper submission, he has 2 signatures that can catch an airborne opponent and another that changes function when your foe is outside the ring. When he triggers Dead Man Walking any effects against him like knockdown, stun, rebound, bounce, tap out or knockout are negated and give Taker priority to his next move. Do you have what it takes to defeat the Dead Man?
 

Vader
The Mastodon
6'5"  450 lbs
The Rocky Mountains
 
Finisher- Vader Bomb
Signatures

  • Face Eraser
  • Sky High Chokeslam
  • Vadersault
  • Clubbing Combo

Charge Move- Body Block (hits everyone at point of impact, everyone hit gets launched)
Big Man
       Temporary Ability- Vader Time
A Big Man with great brawling skills, and some high flying ability. Vader will stand toe to toe and trade blows with anyone, and with his strength and toughness he often ends up on the winning end of those exchanges. This is on display when the Big Van activates Vader Time, matches can turn into a slug-fest allowing Vader to ignore the effects of his opponents strikes. Though he still takes damage from their hits he can trade blows as if he wasn't even hit. Prepare to get taken to the woodshed.

  • Somersault Clothesline

Charge Move- None
Acrobat
      Active Ability- 1,2,3 Quick
X-Pac bolts into All Stars 2 quick as a hiccup. One of the speedier Acrobats in the game not only in his movement, X-Pac also wields the fastest strikes in the game. He also may steal a sudden 1,2,3 victory with his ability to turn nearly any of his grapple moves into a pinning combination by simply tapping the left trigger during a grapple. His finisher also has the ability to connect with an opponent perched on the top rope.
 
Yokozuna
6'4"  589 lbs
The Land of the Rising Sun
 
Finisher- Banzai Drop
Signatures

  • Running Leg Drop
  • Side Belly to Belly Suplex
  • Savate Kick
  • Shoulder Claw Hold

Charge Move- Throat Thrust  (Fastest charge move in the game)
Big Man
       Active Ability- Immovable Object
Yokozuna truly was an immovable object in the ring, it was always a great feat to get the big man down. He staggers and flails a bit before he will fall, some grapples will not even budge him. Has great striking speed. He is the slowest moving character in the game, but watch out, once your life bar is solid red (before flashing) his Banzai Drop can KO you.

I eagerly await.  It's a shame the game didn't come out on the PC, we would have had the ability to mod the game, which would probably have turned into a community like the one for No Mercy, which is still going strong 15 years later.

Gunn is a strong, fast, athletic, and intense competitor who knows exactly how to put all those tools together. All Stars 2 showcases Billy's talent with the Gunn Show, allowing him to string together moves quickly, opening up combos that may suddenly have your opponent in the air for your flashy juggle combos including your dropkick launcher perhaps into a signature. Are you down with that?

Las Vegas, Nevada
 
Finisher- Shell Shock

Charge Move- Back Kick
Brawler
      Active Ability- Bad News

5'11"  241 lbs
Marietta, Georgia
 
Finisher- Doggy Pump Handle Slam
Signatures

  • Shaky Knee Drop

  • Leapfrog Body Guillotine
  • Jumping Forearm Smash (running)
  • Spiked Piledriver (Team signature only when teaming with Billy Gunn)

Charge Move- Dancing Punch
Brawler
       Active Ability- Dogg House
Oh you didn't know! The Road Dogg is bringing his signature style to All Stars 2. What does this New Age Outlaw bring to the game? Famous for his gift of gab and his dancing jab, a Brawler style with a unique Showman technique, Road Dogg's striking combinations seem average at first, but if he taunts before he begins his combination he can connect with a dazing strike. This leaves his opponent stunned on his feet, and wide open to you or your tag team partner's next attack. Welcome to the Dogg House!

 

Jimmy Snuka
Superfly
5'10"  243 lbs
The Fiji Islands
 
Finisher- Superfly Splash
Signatures

  • 3 Strike Combo
  • Headlock to Big Punch
  • Jumping Headbutt
  • Diving Crossbody

Charge Move- Standing Headbutt  (stored) (stun) (springboard)
Brawler
       Active Ability- Big Kahuna

Jimmy Snuka returns to All Stars with all of his signature moves from the original. This time around though Jimmy has more tools as a Brawler to complement his iron physique and his concrete cranium. He has additional combos some of which can be started with his leap in move. He is also one of the few Acrobats to gain a charge move, like many islanders headbutting Superfly is a bad idea making your opponent take self inflicted damage, but when he delivers a charged one offensively it will stun your opponent completely.

Cool ideas!  I definitely would agree on choosing signature moves, and selecting signatures as finishers, especially since more characters would be available in a sequel. Interested in your roster choice.

Allstars had the best sound I have ever heard in a wrestling video game. The crowd was so engaged in every match, they chanted all sorts of different things depending on the action, some chants were even character specific. You could hear screams of pain from the wrestler themselves, and even the announcers sounded more engaged and excited about the action than in any other WWE game.

I haven't played any of the other recent titles so I will have to take your word for it. I do enjoy the chants too, since they often reflected what was happening in the game. I think it would be cool though if they were booing you or chanting boring, it should affect your momentum meter somehow. It makes sense and it would discourage spamming, and encourage you to change it up a bit.

 

Same thing with the announcers, if they have to call a bad match it should affect the person stinking it up. I think though it would be cool if they went back and got different announcers occasionally, like a Jesse Ventura or a Vince McMahon with Jerry Lawler, it would give the game a unique feel.

the main series has stuff like this:

Jerry screaming "aah" when someone does a diving move

"He hits it"

 

 

it's quite comical.

^Yeah. Allstars had better commetary though, it was still somewhat robotic in a sense, but they would say stuff like "Bret Hart is the best there was, the best there is, and the best there ever will be" and then King would say some shit like "I would know, I faced him before". And then the fans will chant stuff like "_____ is gonna kill you" or "this is awesome!" and they always sound enthused about things.

Yeah, I loved All Stars commentary. It blended in with the gameplay and you didn't really "notice it". Like how a hockey or basketball game works. You hear it and it makes the game more fun to watch, but doesn't stick out.

Haven't drawn anything in years lol...had a friend who's work put me to shame, never tried it again. WWE has a new book on their website I was considering getting, it seems like they have that exaggerated style.

What do you mean by "active ability"?

 

I described them at the beginning of part 4 but I guess I should clarify. I need a better term than that to be honest.

 

A temporary ability is something triggered for a time frame, a limited amount of uses or in a certain instance. Kind of like a special trait.

example= John Cena becomes SuperCena for a limited time when you trigger it but he is not that way for the whole match.

 

An active ability is always on, it reflects what is unique about a wrestler that represents his in ring style or characteristic translated into gameplay

example= Mick Foley has Testicular Fortitude he never turns it off or on its who he is.

 

Does that help?

Yeah, I get it now. It would be cool if there was an "active ability" meter that when filled up your character entered into his own ability for a while, so like you said John Cena became "super Cena" for maybe a 20 second window in which all his attacks did twice as much damage and he took in less damage, or Mick Foleys testicular fortitude allowed him to do crazy dives and other daredevil stuff like that. You just can't have them be able to do that the whole match, there has to be a build up to it.
