EWR

Recommended Posts

The "Sorting the World Title picture out" thread has made me start playing EWR again. I changed everything for the WWE to how the WWE is today. For those of you who don't have EWR, here is a link to EWR 4.2: http://www.euphorum.net/scenarios/ewr4.2.zip. If you want I can put the WWE scenario up as well so you can play with the current WWE. We can even do some sort of a tournament of sorts. Or people can start diaries etc...

I take it most of you don't know what I am talking about. EWR = Extreme Warfare Revenge. It's a VERY detailed wrestling game. This is not for the marks, this is not only for WWE fans. Here is a Game Overview:

 

At the heart of EWR is a very simple cycle of events. You start by hiring talent (wrestlers or staff). You pay them a certain amount for them to appear at your events. From these events you make money. You then use the money you have made to bring in better talent, which leads to better events, which leads to more money, and so on. Your job in EWR (which is officially as head booker and general manager of the promotion you are working for) is to keep this cycle going, and to make enough money for your promotion to survive and thrive.

 

So, who and what will you encounter in EWR?

 

Promotions \ Federations: These are wrestling organisations. The EWR game world is made up of your promotion and usually several competitors. Each promotion has the same goal - to make more money. Promotions can go bankrupt, be taken over by other competitors, and new promotions can appear during the game. A maximum of 35 promotions can be in the game world at any one point. Please note that the more promotions you have, the slower the game will run, so people with slow machines should not use more than 10 if possible.

 

Workers \ Wrestlers: At the heart of the game are the workers. Most workers fall under the category of Wrestler, although there are also managers and non-wrestlers. Each worker is represented by a number of statistics that give him \ her a unique personality. Some workers are greedy, some are lazy, some will happily help other workers become better, some will look to cause trouble whenever possible. Please note that like promotions, the more workers in the game, the slower it will run. There is a maximum of 30,000 workers that can be in the game at any one point.

 

Staff: There are several different types of staff, ranging from announcers and medics to trainers and road agents. Each promotion needs staff to function properly, and so they are critical to the game.

 

Events: These major shows are the showcase events designed to pull in the biggest crowds and make the most money (through people paying to attend the event, or through pay-per-view revenue). Some promotions are lucky enough to have their own TV shows. These bring in some ticket revenue, but are primarily designed to help the promotion hype the large events.

 

Your overall role in EWR is to hire and fire the workers and staff, then to book (that means to set the matches, interviews, and angles) the shows. There is no goal to the game as such, there is no way to actually win, but instead you have the ongoing challenge of trying to continue being successful with your promotion.

 

======

 

EWR is very detailed and fun. It's not just booking. If you are not the WWE it's very hard to stay alive. It's a HUGE challenge to grow as a not Global federation. What kind of wrestlers do you want, can you pay those wrestlers, how much will you advertise and make merchandise, it's hard to make money in a small fed, it's really awesome. This game has the real life wrestlers in it and most real promotions (ofcourse not all). You can make your own federation. Also, if you do well in say a Small fed you can be approached by a Cult federation, asking you if you want to book for them instead of the small fed.

 

You have to hire and fire staff (writers, trainers, medics etc..). You can also get TV shows, but you have to send a tape to the network you want a show on and they will check it out for you and maybe you get a show. EWR works with ratings, every network gets different ratings (USA Network really high compared to say Comedy Central). If you have a lot of money as a federation you can try to buy another promotion and you get there wrestlers, so you can do a Invasion even. Form new Tag Team, make them legendary. Form Stables. Make your own Title history (you can make titles). Put together feuds and make them work. As a big promotion like WWE, you can set up your own development promotion (WWE already has OVW) and then you can hire wrestlers and put them in OVW to make them better. You also need to get sponsors, you need to please your workers unless you don't want them anymore. If you want to fire Lita, you'll get Edge pissed because Edge is in love with Lita. Love relationships develop as well. I've already had that I wanted to fire A-Train (a while ago) but he started a love relationship with Vince's "unknown" daughter, so he was unsackable (just like HHH and the McMahons). Some major wrestlers like Hogan and HHH also have creative control so if you want to job Hogan out to Paul London now, Hogan won't let that happen unless London actually proves himself and gets over as a Main Eventer.

 

Wrestlers work with Overness and they have stats: Charisma, Brawl, Speed, Technical etc....A guy like CM Punk is a really good overall wrestler. He has loads of charisma but he's also a great wrestler. Someone like JBL only is good in brawling, but his charisma is pretty high. You can also make someone a manager (I make most women managers because I hate womens wrestling).

 

Create history. See new promotions start up and go bankrupt, see promotions grow. Push the wrestlers you like, book WrestleMania, make your own WWE history, make your own TNA history etc....You can compete with WWE with TNA, you can even get a TV show on Monday and do Monday Night Wars again (ratings will drop of increase, it depends which promotion the fans choose for).

 

Have I gotten you excited yet? Download it @ http://www.euphorum.net/scenarios/ewr4.2.zip.

 

You can ALSO go to 1985 and book the WWF, NWA etc. But you need other scenarios for them. Scenarios is DATA that you put in your data folder and suddenly you are in a different timezone. I have loads of scenarios, just say which time you want:

 

2006 (current)

1985

1989

1990

1993

1998

2000

2002 Split, when the brand extension happened

2003 April

June 2002 when TNA started

 

Give it a shot

My problem was I always sucked. Unless I started with WWE I'd run into money problems pretty quick. Guess I never figured out a good strategy.

EWR has a ton of spyware in it. That's the only reason I don't play now.

 

WTF it doesn't

 

Carnival, there is a link to EWR 4.2 in my first and second post, it should work. Also, I can then try to upload 2006 (current) scenario for you so you can book the WWE of today or TNA of today or BCW whatever of today

It may be due to where he downloaded it from... as EWR isn't as easy to find, nowadays.

Right Matt, whatever you say. Why don't you go back to posting pictures of things that none of us care about?

I think by "new one" I was refering to Total EWR. The one you gotta pay for and has fake wrestlers. anyone know anything about that one?

I had the game installed from the day it was released. When I signed up for DSL, I couldn't get shit to run. As part of the repair process, the SBC technician ran a scan for spyware and found that EWR, among several other programs on my PC, was filled with spyware.

 

I'm not trying to knock the game. I loved it. I'm only passing along information.

Did you have the tool where you could edit rosters and stuff during your current game? I forget who made it, maybe Arsenic, but there was a keylogger spyware found in the utility. That of course isn't EWR as EWR does not contain spyware and your Technician was probably inept and stated shit he didn't know.

ANY program that can interact with the web will come up as spyware. Doesn't necessarily mean it is spyware.

I made the scenario. Now I only changed WWE fully and TNA a bit, the rest are from like 5 months ago but I don't think that really matters. You might have to chance some things like make Edge WWE Champ and Angle World Champ if you want. Also, if you want to start at January 1st 2006, change your computer clock to 31st of December and it'll start at January, if you start now with your time at January, you'll start at February which sucks.

 

Any more questions?

 

Here is the link to the scenario, I uploaded it: http://rapidshare.de/files/11020187/DATA.rar.html.

Extract all the files into the DATA folder, say Yes to all and then you can start playing in 2006.
