It matters not whether Garbo wins or loses, so long as the fight is good. Winning comes secondary as she needed to learn how to fight first. Maybe after this she can start winning matches but I very much doubt that at this point, unfortunately.

LPFWA 2k18 Episode #25 - Longhorned Player Finishes with Attitude
Episode Title by Deathmaster780

Steiner pinned Toad again. After the squash in the match previous one might now think of the implications this has concerning Scott Steiner’s power level but then you remember this isn’t canon. Probably. Steiner DID beat Toad in the past, after all.

this was not a good week for angus not a good week at all


#149

Oh, crap! I forgot to post the match card yesterday and on wednesday! Well…
It’ll be at the usual time, of course. Only this link now links you to the page for the “series” which to my understanding lets you set it up so you get a reminder for whenever I go live with LPFWA rather than having to opt in to every single event. In addition to giving you the exact time in your timezone which is the main reason I put these here. But there’s features.

Of course you’ll also have the honor to vote on who gets to be the fourth wheel in the legendary THREE WAY AT SACRIFICE

All right. Have to reschedule this week’s show to next week due to plans that have since been made. There will be social interaction but there won’t be video game wrestling.

So we’ll skip this week and resume next week

I’ll probably do what I did last time I skipped a week, which means stats and shit. I might even try to recap some stuff that happened? No promises there but there’ll be something.


#157

Okay! We’re set for this week unless something unforeseen happens.

Here’s the match card again

And since we didn’t get a show last week have some numbers and facts, some of which may be fun.

Matches
Last time we tallied up we were eight episodes in and had 63 matches shown. Now we’re 26 Episodes in, with the 27th airing the upcoming weekend. We’ve had 201 matches total with 157 being singles matches. To put that into some perspective: The first LPFWA on WWE '13 ran for 19 episodes and we’ve surpassed that. The second run on WWE 2k14 went on for 32 episodes, which we’re closing in on.

Scenes
We are now at a total of 77 Scenes with an average of 2.96 Scenes per episode. The most scenes per show was 6.
Last time, after eight episodes, we had 26 scenes.
I did some episodes without scenes but addes something different instead. Such as the time Rara got glitched into an equipment box backstage or with all the breaking news regarding The Big Show’s numerous turns.

Wrestlers
We have a total of 52 (35m, 17f) Wrestlers submitted right now, that’s only two more from or last tally.
Out of those 52 I made 41 (28m, 13f) that are active wrestlers. three have a kind of “Staff” role and one was straight up rejected (a literal penis). There’s 7 left that I can still make and they are all by people who submitted multiple characters which means I made everyones first time submissions. The reason I haven’t made any new wrestlers in a while is simple: I’m lazy But I’ll get to it eventually.

Out of all our wrestlers DCB has the most matches with 21. She also has the most losses (14). The highest Win Percentage aside from Nuffkins (100%) is Tolvie’s with 75 %. Garbo Girl has the lowest win % with 16.67% She’s had a rough start winning only 1 of her six matches so far (one of those remaining five was a draw)

Championships
Probably surprising no one the title with the most defenses is the Bunny Championship who only hasn’t been defended in a single episde (The Women’s Tournament). It’s also the title with the longest reign (6 succesful defenses by Palpatine). The second longest reign is a four way tie between Bone Pimps unfortunate Buscus Reign, Fred Hope and Flamander’s Co-Comm reign, a tree’s LP superstar reign and Nuffkins ongoing LPFWA Title reign. Which means if Nuffkins defends the title once more he’s tied with Palpy

The longest reign in terms of days are Nuffkins with the 155+ days he’s held the LPFWA Title and TECHNICALLY the legendary Wrestler VACANT who held the LPFWA Women’s Title from the start of the season until the Women’s Tournament for 155 days.

LPFWA Over Time
This third “season” is structured a bit differently than the previous too in the sense that we stick to a strict four shows per kayfabe month schedule while previous seasons stuck to the real world calendar, sometimes having five shows a month. Very rarely even six.

The entire thing started, due to technical limitations, without commentary and in the first episode even without music. The first season drew more inspiration from the more well known, legendary angles of wrestling. There was a spoofy rip-off of the whole formation of the nWo and a “third man”. This was partially because I wasn’t really into wrestling at the time and yet decided to run a wrestling e-fed and that was the stuff that was the most easy to learn about.

Season 2 started being more original mainly because I watched Lucha Underground at the time and realized that wrestling doesn’t need to be presented as a sporting event and can just be a dumb sitcom.

Season 3 is the one I started when I was actually into wrestling. It draws inspiration from several promotions and eras and mixes it with whatever LPFWA 2k14 was. The booking also makes more sense now and I don’t drop storylines that often.

The craziest thing that happened is probably still when the moon got thrown into the sun and had to be rescued by wrestling on it. With the whole messed up timeline thing we got going right now we’re not quite at that level yet but with a little time I have no doubt we’ll get there at some point.

The Making of LPFWA
On the off-chance anyone is interested in this here’s how I make LPFWA. To make it more manageable I split the work up between 5 or 6 days.

The first day has me just booking the show. I consider ongoing storylnes, how much a character has appeared total (Can’t be 100% fair here, some people tend to show up more). For title matches I also compare people’s win ratio and I have a formula that gives each wrestler points based their wins and losses, the way they happened (count-outs, for instance count for less) but I don’t use it that much because wrestlers with more matches will naturally have a higher value, so it’s not normalized. Just something fun I whipped up. The highest such rating is Flamander’s, which is 225. The lowest is DCB’s with -155 but by far not the only one in the negatives. This booking step also invovles me deciding possible spots for scenes, but the final decision on which scenes are shown when and if they are even shown depends on the outcome of the next step…

The second day has me just recording every match. The outcomes here are not predetermined although I do sometimes redo matches. Mostly I just hit rematch for funsies so something’s going on in the background this is what happened during the Women’s Tournament confusion. Sometimes I do it because it’s a squash and I don’t want one (maybe because there’s already been one on the show or just because I think it wouldn’t be fitting for one reason or another). I tried to redo some of the Hell in a Cell matches we had until they went out side the cell but they never did. Maybe one day they will. Maybe the AI just never does. I don’t know. For the Fred Hope vs. Flamander Iron Man I just redid it until the result was not one-sided (the winner’s varied but it was usually a shut-out victory for whoever won and that was not very interesting). It was not my intention to have them fight to a draw again but I’m kind of happy they did. Most of the time I don’t even watch the matches though, It’s just hard not to notice a 1 minute squash match.

The third day has me actually writing the script for the scenes on the show. Now that I know how the matches end I can make people react to these outcomes. In previous LPFWAs I had to write around that because even though you could make stories branch it was a real hassle to set up. As far as writing the actual scenes go I sometimes have concrete ideas when I go in. I sometimes don’t. In that case I just wing it. But I also have some text file with scribbles for scenes I might do at some point. In LPFWA 2 I had some people (Rara, Schir, BFC/Audrey, sometimes Lotus/Dragonatrix and rarely others too help me out here, but by the end of season 2 I went solo. Setting up a time for working like this became very exhausting. For Season 3 I only ever got help with booking and that soon died down).

The fourth day has me actually make the scenes in Renpy as well as recording additional footage I need (such as entrances) this is also where I make the character cut-outs I haven’t made already and where I make backgrounds. I’ve mentioned this in the past, but even though this is technically more work, the restrictions that are being lifted due to using Renpy over WWE '13 or 2k14s built-in story creator make all the drawbacks (mainly Renpy being 2D and mostly static) worth it. I don’t even know how I got the idea to do this because I’m not particularly interested in visual novels. But it brings wrestling closer to its anime roots. If you wanna know what my scripts look like here’s the scene where Kylo Ren starts turning on Palpy. It’s a good example because it’s one in which a lot happens…

Now, on day 5 I so bring it all together. This sometimes extends on to day 6. I have a template project file with some stuff I need for making the show. The crowd shots I show between matches, the sweeping shots before the show starts and all that stuff as well as some graphics and miscellaneous stuff. I first put all the video in and cut it all together. Next I add the entrance music, then the match music, then the pre-match graphics and then finally the trading cards for the entrances. I do it in this order because that it’s sorted descending by the imprtance for the show. If I somehow have less time or energy I just leave out that one step. For the last few episodes I left out the trading cards, for instance. As those aren’t really needed and wont be missed as much as, say, the music during matches. Speaking of the music, I actually have some themes specific to characters. Aside from their entrance theme. Hell-Ena often has Demon of the Fall by Opeth play during her matches (usually when she’s having a vicious comeback or assaults someone backstage). Valerie Easton often has some Castlevania remix tracks for her matches while Lotus has a song of which the title eludes me but it’s a Tales of… Destiny… I think… remix. Mainly because this happened to be the song that played when he got rid of the Buscus.

So, day 6, while the editing phase sometimes extends into this, is when the show happens. Aside from some preparations for the stream I basically just hit play and we go have the show.

And on the seventh day I rest!

Now, all this is a lot of work and it’s quite time consuming, but the way I split it up still gives me time for my other hobbies, social stuff and of course my day job. It can get quite exhausting and when it gets too much I just don’t do a show. So far I didn’t have to skip a week for that reason yet. It was basically Christmas when I visited my family as well as last week when I went to see a movie with friends.

Well, that was a lot again. But I know there’s one or two people out there who like this kinda stuff. I like LPers to give these behind-the-scenes looks ocassionally myself, after all.

Okay!

In addition to the regular show there will be two more bonus matches, both using Fire Pro Wrestling World.

The first will be a retread of the first match of this season:

Additionally there will be an eight-way with characters randomly selected by the game.

And of course there’s also our regular scheduled bonus match…

So the updated match card is as follows:


#160

So now that you’ve made characters in Fire Pro Wrestling World, how do you feel the character creators compare? From what I’ve seen, Fire Pro seems to have more details when it comes to the appearance, but what about other things, such as moves and taunts and all that?

VMqnXZY “Los borrachos, eh? Pues les dire que tomar es un pasatiempo nacional en Venezuela, so you won’t be surprising me with your drunken tricks, this belt stays with the Hugrule Warriors!”

(Also, that’s a lot of cool behind the scene stuff, always interesting to see what goes into making a bunch of people punch each other.)
