So setting up my universe, what's a good number for each shows roster? (so everyone can be utilized)

I think I figured out the faction angle I was discussing in another thread. Asuka will go heel and start an Oedo Tai-like faction with NXT callups who will be Kairi Sane, Io Shirai, Xia Li, and one more person.

I want there to be one extra person who isnt from Asia, just to shake it up a little and add a different flavor and skill set. Toss between Bianca Belair, Toni Storm, and Mia Yim. Bianca would be kinda cool if I make it so that she gets called up on her own, and Naomi sees an ally in her when Asuka turns on her with Io, Kairi and Xia.....and then Bianca turns too, to join them. Theyll come out in similar colors, robes, and masks.

...welcome to Asuka City. 🤡

I'm making two separate shows for Divas in my universe, was wondering can belts be cross-branded (Considering doing that for tag team belts)

Im enjoying universe mode, Ive pretty much left he rosters as is for now. Will likely play through a year then look at some callnups and shake ups.

One thing that is fun. Ive created a new ECW show. Set it so that every match is extreme rules and have filled it with original CAWS from the forum here to see who stands out to go to the main shows.

To make it a bit more fun and edgy and unique, the ECW show uses the Cel Shade filter, makes it look different and edgy and cool.

I think I'm about ready to start my universe. The rosters are all set. Just haven't decided if I'm going to go with separate ppvs or just one combined one each month. The rosters are plenty big enough to have separate ones, but I guess just having one each month could make the matches on raw and smackdown feel more important.

How are people getting the most of of Universe mode?

I'm in control of Smackdown. I simulate all other shows besides PPVs of course. I am only 4 weeks in.. and I am beginning to lose interest in Universe mode.

Any tips?

I keep track of wins and losses which always holds me over. I sim the weekly shows and love how Universe can have stories and news outside of rivalries. I right down all my current champions and keep track of all feuds that happen or start over the course of simming. Then I play the PPVs and choose to play with who I feel had the upper hand during the feud.

I had a tag team match between Undisputed Era and Velveteen Dream and Tony Nese. It was Cole and OReilly for UE, Strong and Fish were managers. I simmed the match and got the potential rivalry alert with Cole and OReilly still allies while now Fish and Strong are listed as enemies. Def using my imagination for a little UE civil war. The next PPV I had Fish and OReilly lose the tag titles to Heavy Machinery and Cole defended his North American title against Strong(havent played yet). It is def fun using what the computer gives to make an entertaining PPV

Started building my universe going with a modern day WCW Thunder Arena I saw posted elsewhere online. No real rhyme or reason to my roster just if I see a CAW I like I add to the roster.
Currently Cody Rhodes is the WCW world champ he just finished feuding with Shingo and is currently feudless.
The U.S Champ is Trent Baretta who is on a hot streak of defenses and will face Monty Brown at the next PPV.
Not to focused on the tag scene yet but I think SCU is holding the belts currently.
Rhea Ripley is our women's champ who just defended the belt in a 8 women ladder match. I have her lined up to fight Aja Kong at the next PPV.
Eventually Jay White will be getting a title shot and Austin Aries is now our Lighting in a briefcase holder so there's that possibility eventually. It's killing me not to have pre ordered tho since some decent CAWs have the damn dlc restrictions

Are custom sideplates working in the UM? They won't appear for me even if I assigned them.

And why can't I do run ins in a title match? What a stupid restriction, that's where this feature is the most important. -.-

Edit:

Why in the hell is the run-in payback not working in a steelcage match in Universe? Is that also a bug?

So, what's everyone doing as far as ppvs? Just going with one a month, or is each show getting their own? I still haven't decided which one I'm going with.

I have 5 brands. Raw, Smackdown, NXT, Raw is War, Nitro. I have 3 PPVs a month. Raw and Smackdown share one, Raw is War and Nitro share one, and NXT has its own.

I want to one PPV, per show, per month (Raw one month, SD the next, and keep alternating) but Im picky in that the Smackdown PPVs have to have Blue ropes, and RAW red, or I wont use them, and I dont think theres enough arenas brand specific to do that with. I havent checked though

I was thinking about trying to do 2 ppvs a month(1 raw, 1 smackdown). That might be a little much for me to keep up with though. Plus, there aren't any extra arena options, other than downloading created ones.
