Okay so I am thinking I'd like to have a regular PPV schedule instead of rolling for it every cycle. Know what's coming up and have time to book bigger tournaments, guarantee we get to all my gimmicks eventually, have more a sense of the passage of time long-term, all that stuff. I kinda like the rhythm of 2 TV shows and then a PPV, so I think we'll keep that. Was considering adding a TV but that might get a bit draggy for those cycles where you have multiple established feuds ahead of time. I think what we'll do is go 45-show "seasons" (I wanted a round number but the math didn't cooperate) of 15 cycles, which dovetails nicely with where we are right now- I'll do a Rumble and a Mania, probably, and then it'll be "Season 2."

INPUT OPPORTUNITY/TL;DR
All that to say, I have here a list of 15 PPVs, and now would be a fantastic time to offer input if you have opinions on any of these or others. It is a lot of tournaments but I <3 tournaments so y'all can deal :P This isn't the order- once the list is finalized I'll put them in an order that makes some sort of sense (ie, space out similar things, end with Rumble>Mania, that kinda thing)

Royal Rumble (wouldn't have more than a couple matches on the card outside of that)
PLAAYMania (big show at the end, no gimmicks except maybe a "get everybody on the card" battle royal)
Lethal Lottery (2v2 tournament with random teams)
King of the Ring (regular ol' tournament)
Survivor Series (probably 1 5v5 match)
Feast or Fired (Lockbox challenge with a title shot, a pink slip, and other prizes)
Exile (If you challenge for a belt and lose, you're fired)
Bound for RNG (round-robin series...with not many people)
Torneo Cibernetico (Survivor Series on steroids and the winners fight each other)
Extreme Rules (all matches are at least Hardcore)
Elimination Chamber (not sure how well EC will work but I can try)
Triangle Trouble (all triple threats)
Cyber Sunday (you get to vote on stuff)
King of Trios (3v3 tournament with guest teams)
Tag World Grand Prix (2v2 tournament with guest teams)

Other ideas that currently haven't made the cut: A battle royal that's NOT a Rumble, more no-gimmick PPVs, that large team league thing CHIKARA does, "cross-promotion" PPVs with other feds, G-1 Climax, Night of Champions, a show where alumni can come back, the pyramid battle royal from Tiger Mask W

I would like to but I don't think they'd work well with this system: Ultimatum, MitB

Clash of the Immortals (team league) was a one time CHIKARA thing because it kind of limited the season a lot and injuries/signings could be a big issue. May want to avoid that one.

I don't know if this would work becaiuse it kinda mixes KotR and MITB, but Lucha Underground's Gift of the Gods thing was pretty cool. A series of matches of all types to obtain contenders, then a final match for said title.

The winner would then choose the day of said title match in advance, like the RVD cash-in.

May not make a full PPV concept, but something to add to the pile. The benefit is it can pull double duty as a show build or just a multi-week storyline hook.

....Not going to lie, I like the idea of the pyramid battle royale from TMW, but that has the same issue as EC in I have *no* idea how that'd work. ....And honestly we probably need a larger 'permanent' roster if Feast or Fired and Exile are gonna be in the rotation, especially with our already sizable injury and employment rate issues.

the G1 Climax and Bound for RNG have the have number of employees problem, but hiring more leads to screentime issues. Unless we go full factions/Freebird rule and give humans here the ability to pick people they wanna have for back-ups, but obvious issues there.

....And going to be honest, Triangle Trouble just seems underwhelming, somehow.

Do like the Gift of the Gods thing too, heaven knows LU isn't using it anymore.

I think it'd be easier to pull off than EC actually- we have pretty robust fanmade battle royal rules, so just add the tier system on and we're set.

Possibly! Part of the reason they're in the rotation in the first place is to keep the roster from getting too stale and to give me more excuses to start working through the waiting list....although that hasn't been a huge problem so far I suppose. Personal taste thing maybe? Anybody have opinions?

Yeah it would be a small league (like a 5-man would be pretty easy) which would be weird but maybe okay in its own right? Maybe not?

yeah fair that is one of the ones I am most likely to cut

I don't trust dice/rng on general principle although I do adore it, and dice/random shaming doesn't work. ^_^' they've shown they'll do it once before, wouldn't put it past them to do it again. ^__^''

....I don't wholly see the point of a round robin with a roster this small, unless it's done directly after an Exile/FoF PPV to give a higher chance of fresh match-ups. Otherwise it just ends with a bunch of matches that've already happened several times before. We don't have the history to make long-running rivalries a focal point for that. I will legitmately set myself on fire AGAIN, on PURPOSE this time if a certain one you might've considered after that sentence ever happens, as a note.

....If the TMW would actually be easier than EC than yeah okay ^_^

Current leaning:
Cut: FoF, EC, Triangle, BFG
Add: Pyramid Thingy, NoC, Gift of the Gods, Summerslam equivalent
