This is what is needed for the game, a game for the fans, i don'k, well especially in the circles I am in, mainly creators. People pick up the game much these days to just play, they are playing their own universe. So this is what is needed.
FIRSTLY. KEEP ALL THE GAMEPLAY ANIMATIONS ETC AS IS IN 2K19.
Nothing needs to change other than maybe a few tweaks to collisions and environment interactions. I have been able to have some epic matches, you just need to figure out a good game balance in the settings.
Universe Mode Re-Work
I am not just talking the same old, more cut scenes etc. People play universe mainly as their own promotion. We should be able to add NPC's, in ring announcers, commentary team (even if its Cole etc actually commentating), backstage staff wearing your promotions shirts etc, like the seats being edited.
Book stories, take from the old GM mode, options to follow a certain storyline. Things like:
David vs Goliath
You choose the David and the Goliath. The story plays out as ''David'' tries to overcome the ''Goliath''
Add stables, they regular come in the ring together, have customer cut scenes, I mean a ministry style Monster, wouldn't just walk to the ring with a mic...
If you are back stage, you need back stage clothing, this should be the same for promo's.
Be able to book an injury or a beat down on an opponent can end in this being mentioned,
Their is no need for GM Mode if they can make Universe Mode better, take out another mode and make this the focus.
Firstly, nothing can be done about music, what they can do is add more custom tunes in for use to use It would be handy to have ''Tabs'' eg
As well as a note saying ''Used on ''X''
Sticking With entrances, we need more Championship Entrances, or be able to create them. Tag Team entrances and more options overall.
More that two attires, and as stated option to have back stage/promo attires.
The only thing I would add to this, or it could be added in Universe when you set up a show etc, the ability add the Championship History and Records
I for one, as many others keep a continuity record of who has held what. Example i reset my continuity on 2K15 since then:
PWA World Heavyweight Championship
Chad Hardy x 5
The Machine x 4
Barry Ryan x 3
BB Blake x 2
Kidd Cool, Max Stevens and Logan Xander x 1
The Machine holding it for about 18 months.
This would also allow us to add history to NJPW, AEW etc when we grab them,
Nothing needs to be added like create a finisher, all they could do is the option of changing the name? Even on commentary of moves. The same move dependent on promotion can be called other things.
Their is probably more, but these are my gripes.
