  1. I know the gameplay is not going to be as I like but I really hope they’re doing tweaks all around to make it play out better and more logical. At least making stats matter to who plays more dominant and every match not needing more than one finisher (realistic if were an aew game lol).
  2. The one thing I’m liking that I’m hearing is that created wrestlers now are more closer to in game models. If they pull that off right it could be great for creations. Hopefully they allow us to just apply a logo to trons for created wrestlers with some default movements to chose without having to make the created video and waste time with that.
  3. Ok going to try this without hopefully making this a bash fest. I’m surprised some of you really liked 2k22 that much. Fighting game stuff aside, so much is off like ratings meaning nothing to gameplay, fighting styles not really being a thing, movesets being off, the over complicated buttons, etc. The one thing I can compliment the game on is the matches being more challenging but it feels off that I’m playing as Brock and gran metalik is giving a good fight and kicking out from an f5. I guess from looking at the points this just boils down to stimulation vs arcade.
  4. Lol I’m talking more about the 2k22 support justifying how it plays. I know even if 2k wanted I doubt they can bring back 2k19 since that was yukes and they didn’t know how to work with what they had but I’d rather they feel pressure from fans to make a better product rather than telling them it’s fine as is (especially with the weird fighting game stuff they brought in). Hopefully 2k23 does bring in stuff to silence us that have been criticizing.
  5. Lol seeing people not care about gameplay here is wild. The nba game gets so much shit from their fans for anything that’s unrealistic. The wwe game series just let all that playing out realistic stuff go and a good portion of consumers are completely fine with it because it’s pretty. I guess it’s a lost fight to care about the gameplay being good again.
  6. This is one of the first trailers/release of info that didn’t hype me up for the game. Hopefully they have improvements to show
  7. I haven’t heard anything about ps5 having upgraded graphics. Hopefully they do but if it’s either that or gameplay getting better then I’ll take gameplay.
  8. Seen a few videos about early rumors and if they’re true then gameplay seems close to untouched. I miss the stimulation gameplay of this series and seems like there’s no desire to go towards that as I imagined.
  9. I hope this series takes a turn towards the right direction again. I think this game got equal play out of me as 2k20 and this game has good dlc. Problem is the characters don’t even play like themselves anymore. All these movesets are full of “yeah that looks like a move he might do”
  10. Do any of you enjoy the gameplay of 2k22 more than the games before (excluding 2k20)? I see polls around and feels like the complaining is coming from a small majority of us which is going to suck for this franchise future imo.
  11. I been giving 2k22 another shot and if you pick 2 people that are equal the match flows good sometimes. The matches play out horrible and really unrealistic though if you pick a super heavyweight against a cruiserweight.
  12. To me the problem is 2k with 2 years to work with the game have introduced new features that are probably all going away from how a wrestling match works. I don’t think it’s laziness but more of there not being real fans of the genre to guide this like there was with yukes. It’s a shame that realistically yukes with aew wont be something that will change anything. For them to be real competition they need years to build the game up and sales of a yearly title to help that. The news has been out of how much it has taken aew to create this game so to continue Im sure this has to succeed. Also as much as I like aew, the wwe brand is way stronger to promote anything.
  13. Yikes that leg drop machine gun Kelly does looks horrible like it belongs in a more fantasy fighting video game. Idk about y’all that defend it but that combo system is pretty hokey which I can get if you want an arcade style game. I rather the way it was before with elements they removed like stamina, reversal limits, etc being more of what drove the match.
  14. It’s a shame this series was going so well and then they cut cost and it feels like a game created by ea instead of 2k. I hope to be wrong but if caw mode undergoes an overhaul I could see it being simplified to how it is in most fighting games.
  15. Lol I figured Rvd was going to disappoint. I thought either his frog splash is going to be the same or a new animation that looks even less like his in real life.
  16. Not a fan of how some moves are inaccurate but a part of me likes the variety in animations if the correct animation is already there. I just can’t get myself to play this game more than a couple days for when the dlc comes out due to the way gameplay is now.
  17. The ai has never been great from what I can remember. 2k19 as much as I think it’s probably my favorite in the series (yes, I’ve played all), it had an ai that lacked depth. Like I noticed I barely or never saw them go for springboard moves as high flyers unless they were part of signatures or finishers. 2k22 ai is pretty challenging but it makes no sense to me Raul Mendoza is kicking out of my finisher, giving me a fight like we’re even if I picked Brock Lesnar.
  18. Nothing kills the flow of a match like going for a running strike and the opponent turning to an untouchable wall because they have the block stance.
  19. My hopes are high for Brian Williams being back and I’m sure I’ll get disappointed but nobody in the series history matches his level of caring. Also maybe it’s just me but I see a parallel with this game and the wwe. This year both have lowered in quality but the product looks prettier than ever which is enough for casuals and kids to enjoy who they’re catering to more
  20. Shafir might be one of the most awkward people in the ring I’ve ever seen including celebrities. It’s wild since she married to a guy known for being a technical wrestler and with her background could have so much potential. Seems like Tony doesn’t want to make Kyle feel like he’s only a tag guy after his prior run as a singles competitor but yeah I’d rather someone else get his little push right now. I’d argue Wardlow is a good babyface promo but it would be appreciated somewhere like wwe since in aew for a promo to stand out it usually has to be edgy. He looked confident on mic and let his chants have their moment which I hate in aew when a face steps over people chanting their name. What’s bad to me is the silent at the beginning entrance thing he has.
  21. Yeah chain grappling was an underrated part of this series. I’m part of the this is street fighter people and to add to the why I say that the blocking in this game sometimes play just like it. Dodging and blocking are cool if done right but irl in something staged like wrestling, wrestlers most times take a strike and depend on a move to get reversed. This series has so many things I hope don’t stick around for the future. I can list so many but to name a few the way some of these new dlc moves play out, the weird hctp fighting stance after moves randomly brought back this year, the way every wrestler plays the same in many ways and are almost equal to each other in a match. It’s crazy in 2k19 you can get a created wrestler and have a match play out like them and with 2k22 you can get an in game character and it can be rough to get a match to play out like them. This series is in a weird spot since it can sound silly to want stimulation gameplay for a staged sport which allowed creators of this game who are probably casual fans to do whatever they wanted. It’s like me being a casual nba fan just made nba 2k23 play out like nba street vol 2 because I was a fan of that game and it was fun.
  22. Has 2k addressed any of the fans concerns for next game? It kinda concerns me that the initial excitement around release could have them content with how the game currently is so they wouldn’t make any drastic changes in the next game when it really could use so many fixes.
  23. Like many of you I cant seem to enjoy this game as much as I'd like. I play DLC a bit and then barely play. It's crazy 2k19 was near other sports games in terms of stimulation (which shouldn't be as difficult since wrestling is predetermined and has predictable moments) but the series seems to have taken such a weird turn. The new striking combos look bad and clunky, the boxing inspired block and dodges look so out of place half the time... Then something as dumb as playing with Brock against the biggest jobber and the jobber kicking out of an F5 of giving me a match like we're equals. The movesets also took a huge hit. From being MORE tedious to create a moveset to the many times I've noticed a move is here because it looks like their finisher on current stars. I'm sure I repeated myself like 20 times but I really hope they fix and not build their new foundation on how this currently plays.
  24. I really try to like this game but every time I go back it, it plays so flawed. I played with Brock against slapjack and he kicked out of an f5 and gave me a crazy match which shows stats don’t even matter in this game. presentation is nice but I really hope they do something about gameplay. It looks so awkward when some running attacks are blocked like a mortal kombat game. maybe I’m alone on this but can’t even properly enjoy dlc with the way it plays
  25. Bryan Williams being back is great news to this series for me. People can hate he brought stuff from other promotions but I like it and caws are a major part of this game. In the many years of this series he's the one guy I seen always has shown passion for creating these games. I've said it before but the current 2k team seem to have little interest in wrestling which wont help towards game being stimulation and I can see Bryan helping that change a bit.
