EWR/Fire Pro Returns Diary: WCW 1993

Recommended Posts

Without any further suggestions, I've settled on doing a diary for 1993 WCW. I will use Fire Pro Returns for PS2 to simulate the matches and my own system for booking them and angles. I will be running house shows, TV tapings, and big events based on WCW's actual touring schedule from 1993. The only show I won't be doing is the November 1993 Clash of the Champions, because they also did a Battlebowl PPV that month, and EWR only allows for one big show a month. I won't be doing the New Japan Supershow either, since I don't want to sign all their guys for just one show.As guys get more or less over and move up or down the card, I'll be altering their stats in FPR. Champions will get a stat boost randomly assigned, with the maximum boost going down the longer their reign lasts. That's so I don't have a series of title changes without any successful defenses.I've had to change up the TV schedule, since a couple shows aired on the same day. The TV schedule is:WORLDWIDE: Thursday, Late EveningMAIN EVENT: Friday, Late EveningSATURDAY NIGHT: Prime TimeTHE POWER HOUR: Sunday, Early EveningI'll be "auto booking" the first two weeks of TV shows until I get to a TV taping that I run.  At that point, I'll list "spoilers" for the matches, then full show write-ups when it comes time for them to air.I have the Arsenic Editor, which I'll be using to add guys as they debut in later years (if I do this long enough) and to heal injured guys who have participated in a taping before their injury so their matches can be added to the TV shows when they're booked in EWR (I expect to be doing a lot of that when I get to the mass Worldwide tapings at Disney).I will be posting injuries and new signings as they happen.The current WCW roster is:Arn AndersonBarry WindhamBig Van Vader (WCW World Heavyweight Champion)Bill IrwinBob CookBobby EatonBrad ArmstrongBrian PillmanCactus JackChris BenoitDan SpiveyDiamond Dallas PageDustin RhodesErik WattsJohnny B.

Hey man, not to try and run your company or anything, but that Steve Austin guy would make a pretty good guy to go up against an oppressive boss...
