it gets complicated there. maybe we can try to implement a tag team division after we get this set up and learn the ropes of what can be done and what can't? maybe we can do a huge tag team belts thing for our WM PPV.

I agree with this

I figured it could just be a division but I like the mini-show idea alot. As for raising ECW, that's up to everyone's preferences I suppose.

Yeah it could just be a Wednesday show or something.

so again, this is going to rely heavily on two things:

1) the board of directors - these guys have got to be 100% on board and be willing to write storylines/ hold the league together.
2) users - weekly promos/ideas/etc will have to be suggested

as for RAW/PPV's - when the matches are set, who is actually hosting? How will that work? Will we do one match at a time and post videos on youtube, or what? Also, that will be difficult to coordinate everybody's schedules. has anybody thought about this?

On that note:
How should we do "shows" I doubt we'll be able to get even half of us on at the same time. So should we make the card the week before, and then have the whole next week to play the matches, with the deadline for final results being that Saturday? And then we can compile a final results report. Trying to get everyone on at the same time isn't feasible as much as I wish it was. We would work out when the individual match takes place based on the competing individuals schedules.

I used to roleplay (write promos, storylines, match results, etc.) back in the early 2000s, haha. I feel like this will fill the creative void in my life that I haven't had since I stopped doing that. So I'm pumped for this.

Ya, I think the cards need to be made on an official day (whatever we decide) and you have 5-7 days to play out your match. Shouldn't be too difficult that way.

I think it would be cool to try and get everyone on at once for "Wrestlemania" or something like that.

Also the more I'm thinking about this the more I am 100% down to be a GM as opposed to an actual game player this time out haha. Sounds awesome.

no, it's certainly not feasible. that's why we need to make a decision of "is this going to be a simulation league based on promos/storylines" or have it be based on actual skill in the game. if its the latter, yeah, we will need to do your suggestion and everybody has a week to find 30 minutes to get on xbox live and do their match with their partner.

but that's going to create a LOT of conflict issues.

how does the madden league handle the actual playing of games?

That sounds good especially if we're doing one show every two weeks. A week to do the matches and a week for the creative team to do their thing.

Yeah, I feel like the inbetween weeks are the perfect time to get storylines and such done. Make them come naturally based off of our real reactions to what happens, ya know?
