No stat limit

All moves min. price.

No legends

No staff

No styles, replaced with modifiers, you start out with a basic modifier, which is like a style, but without the starting moves, instead everyone starts with the same basic moves everyone has in common. Modifiers are earned throughout exp.

Fame % deduction greatly reduced, i see plenty of wrestlers take long breaks for like 3 months, but then come back just as or if more popular. Fame addition lowered, maybe 1-30.

New addition-rebuying moves, you can rebuy moves but rebuying increases the price by 1.5 but you add a move chance multiplier meaning if you got 3 sdl's bought it occurs 3x as much.

New moves-russian leg sweep, stuff like that

Specialized moves=same

stats required for certain moves.

Subs are based on con.

this would cause a whole new strategy in VOW instead of everyone just maxing stats and then getting good moves. Now there is more of a choice buy lots of cheap moves, they are repetitive. The choice is yours.

Healing-Matt's concept

Trademark moves-Matt's concept

New Taunts-add increased move chances/damage until countered.

VOW chats revamped-channels, uncensored channels, rp channels,etc.

Test server. To test stuff.

All VOW voting for guys 200 exp and up.

This would have to be a diff VOW for everyone already worked on other VOW

Double team moves. Team exp.

You know.. I was thinking before I read your blank post topics and the top... I was like "Here we go again!" but I like the ideas. Sounds great. I would enjoy trying it.

Well I like it but all I can say is you just wasted your time and will get your hopes up all for nothing.

Sounds like a lot of ideas that people were throwing about in the chat a few days ago, but as coney said, there's no point in getting your hopes up. VOW3 wouldn't be made for at least 2-3 years.

all of it has allready been suggested, thought of, etc. pp.

nothing new here, and also imho, a lot of crap. Even if Peter had the time to implement this, he wouldnt - he has more sense than that

Leave VOW as it is, if it ain't broke don't fix it... I've spent so much effort on Tajiri without paying any money, and I don't want to see it all disappear.

With the exception of bringing back the tag team notification links, development on the current version of VOW is finished.

However, a VOW 3 cannot be ruled out as a future possibility. The situation, though, is that VOW 3 would have so many changes, that it will probably just be re-written entirely.

I like a number of the suggestions you made, and some of them I hate, and it is true that most of them have already been discussed at length at other times, but I would never want to discourage VOW 3 discussion as an intellectual excercise. Most of us dream about what we'd do if we won the lottery, so it is that we all dream about what we'd do if there was a VOW 3, myself included.

So, I'm looking for a volunteer. I would like someone to comb through the forum and dig up every VOW development idea that has been presented, compile them into an easy to follow list, possibly editing for comprehension and clarity, and then post it under a VOW 3 thread in this forum. I, myself can't offer you anything, but I'll discuss with Peter the possibility of giving an AP bonus if I think you did a good job. Remember, I can't promise anything! If you're not fast enough to get your version on before someone else's, post it anyway.

The purpose of this is to get all the ideas that are out there into one place, so that if/when development starts, it will be in one place, and people won't have to rehash old suggestions.

Don't worry IC, you can always spend your money on that instead of action points... :D

If you won the lotto you can have loads of porn though.

Plus, you know the gold diggers out there would get their pants off just for some of that cash. :P

Eerrmm.. IC... why did you list naked women, AND porn.. wouldn't that be the same unless its homosexual porn?

Whatever floats your boat though..

He's got a point there...well, at least I think he does.

My conclusion is: there are no men involved in IC's dreams at all(unless he sees himself as one).

Strange thing is still why is he dreaming about porn and naked women?

Why doesn't he just watch?

Or is he such a porn addict that he keeps thinking about it while asleep?

I have text file which basically is VOW. I can simply add any ideas that i want to put in it and look at it as an overview. Although some of the formulas are outdated it is similar enough so that a 12 year old can tell what it is. I already have thought of the ideas above and many more and added them to the equation, and I have made a compromise in my head to bring peace and order back to what I think of vow. I have shortened the long "true" statement that I have to give to you.

Anyone who wants to revamp VOW from what it is now, simply just wants an easier game.

Ah, yes you may think I seem too harsh or too ignorant but I have backed up my hypothesis.

No stat limit/ no legends = Ocelot beats the crap out of everyone. (since there is no stat limit I would have just from the start bought every single move and bought just the right amount of ap to accomplish that, instead of trying to make a realistic, and effective character.

Modifiers earned throughout exp: same thing i would beat the crap out of all of you

no staff: thats actually a good idea

all moves at min price= makes it easier for me

rebuying moves= My crimson crippler would be brutal

new moves= peter is pretty busy at the moment

stats required for certain moves= I would be injuring everyone else so nobody would buy high stat moves

subs are based on con= my 3 sub specials would basically be a free win

trademark moves= ive thought of that too but no time to implement it, would have to revamp

taunts= matches made shorter.

So thats for the most part. I wouldnt want it to be too easy. and I say me beating everyone else instead of peter because he doesnt have time to play this game. If vow were like this i wouldnt have cared about my gameplay style it would just be straight forward...

I'm going to have to agree with Oce. I would have no interest if some of the said changes were made. I think that even I would have mastered the game by now with those changes. Here are the things you mentioned that I would like to see:

1. No staff (But if this was done then there would also need to be less injuries.)

2. More moves

Also about rebuying moves. I don't think one should be able to rebuy a move unless they have it specialized.. Let's take Really Loco for example. He has the Body Slam specialized into the Loco Driver. But now he has no body slam because his description for the Loco Driver is different... so he would rebuy the body slam. Make sense? Hope you don't mind me using you as an example man. :)

I would like to see no staff, but put in the characters doc lvl 2 automatically, so there would be less injuries.

"I would like to see no staff, but put in the characters doc lvl 2 automatically, so there would be less injuries."

You want no staff but would like to have doc lvl 2 automatically? Isn't that a little controversy (spelling?)?
