In the event that someone who has some input in developing the new game reads posts on here, I thought I would start a thread on improving Universe.
1) Default Attires:
You should be able to designate a default attire in Universe Mode for each Superstar. This defaults to the attire the Superstar is in when the game ships, but can be changed at any time. This would allow better use of the Threads function, as when you are playing things like Royal Rumble or when cutscenes occur, the Superstar is in the attire you want them to be in, not the default attire the game has them in.
2) Attire Selection:
I hate the fact that you have to go into the Change Participants screen if you want to pick one of the alternate/threads attires. This should be on the match-up screen. I don’t know why this has been so difficult for them to achieve.
3) Select Which Titles Superstars Compete For Version 2:
I think THQ had a great idea when they finally let us set up who goes for the minor titles. I have no idea why they did not allow us to do this with the Major titles. If I want someone like Mark Henry fighting for the U.S title, he shouldn’t be showing up in the WWE title hunt unless I want him to. Now, it doesn’t seem to matter what I do, guys going for my minor title show up fairly high in rank for my major title.
4) Full Customization Of Storylines and more of Them:
I liked the surprise of the storylines initially. However, I found that many of them made little sense and did not suit the Superstars involved. I would like to have the option to pick the storylines and who will be involved kind of like they did in the old GM mode. Also, I would like the ability to use the storyline creator to create mini stories that would play out over 4 weeks or so to set up a story that is not one of the default ones. With Community Creations, this would allow a ton of content that we could download with custom cutscene/storylines. All we would have to do after downloading them is select which Superstars will play the roles in the storyline and insert it into the schedule to play it out. That would be a huge improvement to Universe in my opinion.
5) Match-Making Improvement:
This year Universe was actually playable and much better than last year. It does however need improvement with the match-making. I found that in my Universe, it was constantly making a match between a tag team member and someone who wasn’t in a tag team and then having their actual tag team partner compete with someone completely random. For example, I had Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin. Then I had in the next match Grandmaster Sexay & DDP vs. Nash & X-Pac. 2 Cool is a team. Nash & Pac are in a stable. Logically, it should have been Too Cool vs. Nash & Pac. DDP isn’t affiliated with anyone rival or ally in this match-up, nor is Stone Cold. If I take the time to set up the rivalries/allies, then actually use them to make the matches.
I’m sure I will think of more and I’m sure you guys will add more. Maybe, just maybe, someone will read this and make next year great (or not.)
change the attire of the Superstar on the match-up screen. The fact that you can’t do this still is ridiculous and in my view, completely
