Best booking game!

Just the perfect blend of depth but easy enough to just pick up and play compared to the majority of other wrestling booking games, which imo are too text heavy and turn into a mess of numbers and names after a while.

Couple small bugs: 1. when auto filling skits/matches from top contenders sometimes the Book button disappears. 2. Sometimes when you try to use a Feud from the Sponsor slot to autofill out a match with the Feud’s included wrestlers, it seems to be very finicky when a Foil card is involved. It puts in the wrestlers but locks out the feud until you clear the card, even after you switch back to the non-foil. Doesn’t seem to recognize I switch back to the non-foil to use the non-foil feud or something idk, but it’s slightly buggy. Far from gamebreaking though.

I like how we can make our own Factions, that was awesome update as well as more wrestlers, factions and feuds. I’d love to be able to create a belt or rename the belts too, changing TV to Hardcore or Intercontinental would be sweet.

LOVE this game...and have some suggestions

This game is truly a joy to play! You get to book the card the way you want and build towards the “Pay4Views”. Tons of good stuff to say about the game.

With that said, I also have some suggestions to make it even better.

1. Make the special matches like “falls count anywhere” feel different by maybe changing the background to like a different place in the arena...to make it feel like a falls count anywhere match. Special matches should also give better star ratings since we are paying to have them on the card(if they don’t already)

2. If the titles are on the line, maybe show them somewhere on the screen to display that this match is for the titles. Especially after the match, show them above the character who wins head or something? Just makes the title feel more special.

3. I love the special cards like “screw job” to really help me decide who wins and what direction I wanna go towards a p4v, but I’d love more cards like that. Maybe like a “cheat to win” card that basically guarantees a W for a bad guy or a “comeback” card to guarantee the W for the good guy? The ones that only offer 4 push a lot of times still lose when I play them for some reason?

4. More feud cards!!! I love finding new feuds, but I also think some of them should guarantee more stars too...like Average Guy v. Jet setter for example.

Over all I love the game and these are just some ideas. Thanks for this awesome game!

Fun wrestling booking game.

This game puts you in charge as the booker. You are now seeing games pop up advertising the same thing calling themselves “wrestling manager” games or what not but these guys did it first. You get to pick who you want to push. It’s easy to build guys up. Some take more time than others. You have 20 years to book and when you’re done there you can start again with another one of the three companies to choose from.
I have never spent a dime and have been playing this game on a kinda regular basis for about 2 years and I have almost collected all the wrestlers. At this point I thing I have 15 left.. and yes there are A LOT OF WRESTLERS IN THIS GAME! Most are parodies of well known wrestlers (you’ll know them when you see them) so it’s got something for the spenders as well as keeps a level playing ground for the free players so I heavily advise trying this game!!
