Thread: Why docs only?

I've noticed many wrestlers say "docs only". Why is that? What's wrong w/ match coaches and physical trainers?

It gives more money and gives less injuries

Docs only gives maximum money for minimum damage basically, so players use docs only between one another to help each other progess easier

Because people are scared of you using staff and causing them injuries. Back when i was young we had no staff AND WE LIKED IT. You'd usually get 1-2 injuries each match if you lost, and sometimes even if you won. Staff was going to add all this cool strategy to the game, but then "docs only" started, which has put us right back where we started.

Liked it? It was annoying as hell! You spent so much of your earnings recovering that it took until at least 200 Exp before you even had a chance to max out! And thats if you were lucky!

Haha I was lucky...back when there was no staff I was a trad with injury reduction...

Staff are good, they do kinda add that aspect to the game for like for stable battles and tourneys...you can always hope FB forgets his staff so you get a slight advantage ;)

Haha 1 or 2 injuries was usual for losing before staff? Nice try but no, unless you were a Trad, you had a lot more than 1-2 injuries for losing, especially KO's.

my previous wrestler (early 2004 - The Black Lion) frequently suffered 5 to 10 injuries and sometimes even more, and this even in singles that ended on a pin rather then a KO.
This combined with the noob bashing that was very common back then made me leave VOW back then.
I'm very happy you now have the option to just suck up the damage or set docs 2 and get a paycut but keep the stats.
