This is a re-post from the "Un"Official Board
Since this is the start of a new board, I'm going to start posting my Early Classics results
Having played since 1989, I was all the way up to 2106 in my fed (around a few years ago), but the sway of Legends was too strong and I pretty much shelved COTG to concentrate on Legends.
I began hearing the talk about Early Classics and this really peaked my interest back into the GWF. I mean, did I really want one of the biggest Legends of all time, Omega, to have a winning pct. of .350!!?? And what about being able to play Morpheus...something we didn't get to do in the original game
So I decided, when time permitted, to restart my fed and begin with Early Classics to fill in the gaps. The first year of playing, I was really feeling out the characters since, while Mike did a good job of writing, his space was limited. So while we knew certain backstories like Sam-Torpor or the Guardians-Dorado Sundown, really playing the cards gave me a feel for the newcomers
So the first year, it was basically guys who made their way from the POW to the newly formed GWF, feeling each other out and begin building towards rivalries toward the future.
When I get into Year 3, that's when it really started to get fun, along with Year 4, where I'm at now (I was never a Silvar fan, but he's really been fun, making him into a Santino, from the WWE, character).
So thanks to Mike and co for Early Classics...here are some of the results from Year 1 & 2:
EC 1: Early Sept
Omega & Morpheus came out to a mammoth ovation at the Deimos Intergalactic Arena as fans were salivating at the prospect of professional wrestling coming back after a nearly 20 year absence.
Omega explained to the crowd what their goal was in forming the GWF: To provide an outlet to get out your aggression with the hope that, in re-instating wrestling, this would be the perfect outlet. Omega explained, unlike the old days of pro wrestling, this isn’t about “good guys” and “bad guys”, only wrestlers representing their home planets.
Morpheus added that while what Omega said was true, he hopes it doesn’t deter from the wrestlers aggression in the ring as they want to give the fans their entire monies worth, especially since many have waiting this long for pro wrestling to return.
1) Defiance beat Cross Currents by DQ when the ref DQ the watery duo for not leaving the ring during the mandatory five count on the double team.
