Before You Respond

We understand something like this can seem somewhat daunting, below are in-depth questions and insights we'd like to receive your answers and input on. This is important because we run this league essentially for you, to give you the experience you want, to provide the expectations you want, to have the kind of environment that YOU want. In order to keep a standard, to meet those needs, we need you to be willing to help us by taking the time to provide thought-out responses that provide your individual perspective. Even if a bunch of people respond with ultimately the same answers, to you that can seem pointless because why say what's already been said. But to counter that thinking, if multiple people express the same thing that tells us the majority wants/feels a certain way and we need to listen.  

The admins work very hard all throughout the year, in ways you see and ways you don't. All we're asking is that you meet us halfway and participate in this survey because your opinions DO matter. It can tell us a lot about a lot of things we normally otherwise would have to just assume. It can provide ideas we ourselves never thought of and we can then execute those ideas if it's something plausible and wanted. So with an explanation as to why we need your participation. Here is our expectation, just as you expect us to book a card, to be on time with that card, to adhere to your preference in booking such as being left off or being booked in something specific. We expect you as a member of this league to provide us 100% participation in this survey.

This Is Not Optional

This is mandatory because if you are a member here a part of you should care about the overall well-being of it and these surveys in the past have been crucial in ensuring XWL remains the league we all want and have enjoyed for going on 11 years in November.

But while it being mandatory can turn you off because that could feel like it's expecting a lot out of you...we've countered that again with a generous deadline for filling out this survey.

You will have until 5:00 PM EST on Saturday, July 20th. This will be the second Saturday of Coronation. That means you have nearly 23 days to fill out your response to 11 questions.

Failure to respond to this survey with your response to every question will result in you not being booked until you do. You cannot enjoy the benefits of the league if you aren't willing to help with the upkeep. Make sense? We hope you feel it does. And we thank you in advance for participating.

Your answers will not be held against you, we encourage full honesty in all answers. There is no bad opinion, there will be no scrutiny for any negative responses. We're all adults here and we can respect a difference of opinion and conflicting views. Honesty is what resolves issues, lies are what cover them up until they're even more difficult to fix in the future.


The Survey


What do you like most about XWL?




What do you like least about XWL?




When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?




From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?




We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed. With that said, there are two routes that we could take. This is where you as the members of XWL have a voice to let us know how you would like this league to run because after all, we are a community more than anything else. Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?




In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed. If one member put in the effort and it was not returned, then that member will automatically receive the victory for the match in question. If neither opponent can provide evidence that the match was at the very least attempted to get done, then both parties will receive a loss. This was a difficult decision to make on our part, but it was one we as a team feel is a necessary reaction to multiple (both public and private) disputes and dilemmas involving communication and matches. Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?




We have always tried to bring our members together as a community where you can post promos, do matches, and other things. Lately, other things haven’t been working out for us. PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.




The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted. This self-imposed rule is when prior to the match, opponents make an agreement not to utilize a finishing maneuver during either of the aforementioned circumstances (A and B). What are your initial thoughts on this topic? Do you think it should be made into a standard rule for all members to follow at all times? Should that rule be exclusively regulated to title matches? Would you prefer to keep things as they are with the "Gentleman's Rule?" Feel free to make a case for the permitting/restriction of both A and B, neither A nor B, or even if you're partial to having a rule put in place for A, but not B (or vice versa). We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?




Thank you

If there was a topic we didn't address that you feel is important and would like to address please feel free to include it at the bottom of your survey response. This is meant to be a community activity, where people can read each other's responses and provide their own. The end goal is discussion,progress, and everyone coming together to help better the league we all enjoy.

What do you like most about XWL?

The matches with everyone seem to be fun everytime.  Sometimes theres mishaps but the Admins take care of everything in an orderly fashion.



What do you like least about XWL?

Off the top of my head?  I wish people would communicate more often.  Make sure matches get done.


When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?  

Vince McMahon and the stooges are doing a swell job with booking BPJ and Kong as of late.  Thanks to David for being a guide some weeks for me.  Like I said communicate more often. We can all give each other feedback if asked.  In terms of variety, I would say there is a good mix of matches you guys give me.  Of course I want my characters to be booked every week. Flyin Brian will be a Fighting Champion lol.  Kong too. Yes you guys present my characters well.

I think titles are in good care.  Except the TV title lol.  Opportunities are given to the people who care.




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done.

Ok so you have someone bash him wish a weapon causing blood. Reveal the attacker to be a hardcore legend as gm. Then throw the tv title in the trash. Introduce a new title.  A title with fake blood splashed in it. Call it the Kumiti or something.  Find an exotic word for bloodsport. The champion must be a true warrior as the stip for the match would be a 15 min iron man. That if overtime is necessary then “spin the wheel make the deal happens during the match and the gimmick match proceeds.  The third title needs a stip to make it exciting.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?  Activity should be monitored but obviously some leniency is needed.  I think how things are now is fine.

Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?  Its fair.  A no show is a no show. You dont get to get paid if you dont come to work.  I have no problem communicating and neither should anyone else. It takes a minute to message someone back.

Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.  I dont watch the current product.  So predictions are kind of a thing of the past for me.  I thought i participated in the awards?  I hope others care because this league is the funnest when we all are having fun and being active communicators.

The major reversal thing is just a part of the game.  If you get cause with it then so be it.  It most likely looked cool.  Now if one uses (A and/or B) excessively then I can see how it can be looked as try harding.  But this is for fun so be smart with your reversals and stop overthinking the game.



Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

Definitely a new Anarchy Intro.  Get people pumped up.  I know it would be a lot of effort probably, but maybe a “XWL newsletter” or something summarizes each superstars prior week.  Even if they have no showed for 3 weeks.  Say it on the XWL newsletter that “Superstar hasn’t showed his face in 3 weeks.  Probably suffering from the beating from *insert last opponent here*

If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?  I can think of some additions that would be cool for XWL but that requires more work lol.

The Survey


What do you like most about XWL?
The diversity in character implementations and we all come together as pro wrestling fans united, no matter age and no matter experience within the game. We are all having fun, and when we're not, we don't start drama and we handle our real lives, leaving that outside of the forum. I have been here a while and I love this place with every ounce of me, good and bad I wouldn't trade it for the world. Long after i'm gone I hope this place is still running at high capacity.




What do you like least about XWL?
Not a bad thing to say about it, besides the PPV's not being every month or at least every 6 weeks. Sometimes you run dry with a build for a feud or you want to save some stuff to prolong it. Other than that, i'm very happy with the product.




When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

No problems, you guys have been patient and understanding, you have to be consistent to earn opportunities and I plan on doing that going forward. No more screwing up, I value this place and I don't want to be the reason of it's downfall due to my absence as a future champ. Book me every week!




From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names.

Agree 110% Keep doing what you're doing but maybe do more multi-man contender matches, for ambiguity purposes




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

Get rid of it and put in place a title that represents more fighting spirit, because that's what you wanted to give others a platform who feel left out. Elite title, to TV title, now we should go with XWL Grand Championship or something of that nature, that can be traded in for a world title shot at their choosing time & place (realistically not the day of since this is a league not irl).




We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

Everything is good but I do highly recommend that you keep PPVs 2 weeks length, not 1 week because that doesn't ever have a happy outcome or yield results. Not that you plan to do so but just my two cents into the mix there.




In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed.

Fair as hell! Yes! Love this.

I feel it all comes down to individual to individual viewing, sometimes people get motivated by certain things and then demotivated, one way to keep everyone happy is to ensure that LOSING doesn't mean you get overlooked. Promo'ing and doing your Matches are what matters here, enforce that a bit more and you'll see the community rejoicing. The driving force is knowing your audience and this survey will give you insight I know.

Fair enough if you want to go that route, I will abide by it when everyone else is on board and it's official.




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?
Bring back the show intro, I loved those YouTube made videos so much, got me hyped and a top 10 with just 1-10 and render no written out reasons as to why they are there, it's up to everyone to keep up with the show to know why.



If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

Nothing besides what is listed, we are 11 years strong almost and I can't wait for another 11 more lol.



Thank you

PostSubject: Re: The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition!   The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition! EmptyFri Jun 28, 2019 11:13 pm






What do you like most about XWL?

This answer is always the same whenever we do a survey. My favorite thing has always been the community aspect of this league. We’re a bunch of random people all across the world but we’re a bunch of random people who come together because we want to have fun, write promos, and create some fun and exciting memories. Some of us have met really good friends through this website. I don’t think there is another place out there quite as good as this as far as leagues go. I can’t say I’ve ever looked into the E-Fed side of things to see what is out there. XWL hasn’t lasted just because of it’s activity. It’s lasted because of the general behind the scenes community behind it.




What do you like least about XWL?

I’m not talking about any one person in particular when I say this because I’ve been in XWL for… I want to say about eight of the eleven years? I’ve seen a lot of members come and go but certain members have always been the worst part about this league. The trolls. The smartasses. The people who think they’re funny or cool when they’re not. The people who are more of a burden than a benefit to the league itself. People who have gone and called admins things that aren’t exactly nice because we’d get on them for not doing their stuff. Like I said, it’s not just one person because there have been a lot of them. Grow up.




When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I haven’t had any complaints in a while whenever Tyler, David, or anyone else have booked. There’s enough variety for me. I don’t ever feel like I’m facing one person so much more than anyone else. I want two characters to be booked a week which works out considering I only play as two character right now. If I ever go back up to three then please, do not book more than two of them.




From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

Obviously, considering I’m an admin and I gave the approval for this idea, I liked it. Sometimes, yes, we (as admins) need to do what we need to do in order to make a championship look good again. Sometimes we need to take it into our own hands because we cannot always trust people. It’s a shame that it has to be that way but it’s just how it is. Especially in a case like the women’s division where some of us who are really passionate about the women want things to succeed like the North American Championship. It’s the first ever championship for the women that isn’t the big, mail championship. We wouldn’t need to do things like this if people who were handed these chances would just follow through with them. It’s one thing if life gets in the way. It’s another thing to just make excuses about why you couldn’t do stuff and not care.




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

I’m currently on team ditch the championship and DON’T replace it. I think we need to focus on the championships we got. We have plenty of options and I think there’s no sense in adding another championship when we have belts that need focus such as the Tag Team Championship and the North American Championship. Maybe down the line we could look into adding another championship we have but I think what we have now is perfect. We currently have two championships for the men to go after, two championships for the women to go after, and the tag team championships to top it all off. It’s perfectly balanced as all things should be, right?




We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed. With that said, there are two routes that we could take. This is where you as the members of XWL have a voice to let us know how you would like this league to run because after all, we are a community more than anything else. Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

I’m not going to lie. As an admin who is very much so guilty of not doing his job (that Downpour banner, right?), I wouldn’t be against being told to just take it easy and look at things at the end of every pay-per-view. Going week by week can be a difficult task because some admins are expected to not have things come up so they can do these things. Sometimes they get behind and it becomes hard to catch back up because one week becomes two which becomes three and next thing we know, it’s so far outdated that it becomes a hassle to edit. Am I for the idea of admins being told to take it easy? Of course. I think all of us admins would love an easier workload… but I’m also always going to be for the idea of making sure this league is active. This league needs activity in order to thrive and someone has to make sure people are being active and inactive people are let loose. If there was no activity then the league wouldn’t be alive. We need to know when to drop the dead weight.




In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed. If one member put in the effort and it was not returned, then that member will automatically receive the victory for the match in question. If neither opponent can provide evidence that the match was at the very least attempted to get done, then both parties will receive a loss. This was a difficult decision to make on our part, but it was one we as a team feel is a necessary reaction to multiple (both public and private) disputes and dilemmas involving communication and matches. Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

It is too much but it’s what needs to be done, sadly. We hand people these chances and then they let us down. Something has to be done. We don’t ask a lot. We are just asking that you get these matches done - or at least try to get them done - and this is what we get. We get people who then want to crack jokes and think it’s funny but it’s not. I understand this league is for fun but to an extent, it’s a commitment. You are signing up and “signing a contract” in which you agree to be active and participate in weekly shows. So yeah, I think this is a fair request. Y’all don’t wanna get your matches done. At least prove you tried.




We have always tried to bring our members together as a community where you can post promos, do matches, and other things. Lately, other things haven’t been working out for us. PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

Well… considering I was the host of the awards and the one who did the predictions? I don’t have a lot to say on this topic that hasn’t already been said somewhere in the general chat. I am interested in them and care about them since they are fun little things for us to do but like the question says. If most of y’all aren’t interested or don’t care enough to do them then please, say something so I can put my efforts elsewhere.




The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted. This self-imposed rule is when prior to the match, opponents make an agreement not to utilize a finishing maneuver during either of the aforementioned circumstances (A and B). What are your initial thoughts on this topic? Do you think it should be made into a standard rule for all members to follow at all times? Should that rule be exclusively regulated to title matches? Would you prefer to keep things as they are with the "Gentleman's Rule?" Feel free to make a case for the permitting/restriction of both A and B, neither A nor B, or even if you're partial to having a rule put in place for A, but not B (or vice versa). We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

I don’t believe it needs to be an official rule of the league because there are some people who actually enjoy these things. I know David, for example, doesn’t mind the major reversals because they can “look cool” sometimes which I agree. Sometimes they can look cool… but it can just suck sometimes as well, in my opinion. It can suck to be forced to sit there and take a move and be able to do nothing about it. I like that it’s something we can just agree upon as members. Major reversals and using all of your reversals are part of the game. They are not glitches. They are not bugs. They are something that’s part of the game and are likely going to be a part of the game for a long time going forward. It’s technically fair if they happen even though some of us might not like them. I don’t think we should try and ban them because then things start to get more restricted and there’s more things to remember. It takes away the fun. Let’s just let the Gentleman’s Rule play out how it is and if people want to use it then they can go ahead but if not then by all means, major reversal away.




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

I’d still love it if someone would want to review the shows and give thoughts. There doesn’t need to be any gimmick to it. I’m guilty of it myself but there’s a lot of time where a lot of promos aren’t given any credit or anything. I also personally loved the idea of doing member interviews or Question and Answers involving the members. Something to bring us together more and get to know each other.




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

In a fantasy world, I would love to change it to be a league where everyone was active, everyone did their matches, and we all got along. That's not possible, of course, so let's say something more realistic here. I still think there should be more Extreme Rules matches booked. Not a whole lot. Maybe one a show. This is "Xtreme Wrestling League" after all and I don't think it would hurt to let the chains off sometimes. Maybe make every main event an extreme rules. I don't know. I just think we should put the 'Xtreme' back in XWL.

What do you like most about XWL?

Bang.



What do you like least about XWL?

No more Kliq.
Also, I miss Krzy.
Also, things like "do this survey or you won't get booked"



When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

My legend deal has still yet to come through. I am not ok with this.



From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

Tbh, I never seen that division needing a second title? Personally I haven't seen the need change and saying the history is lackluster backs that.
Also, putting a title in a feud just so it adds spice sounds suspect tbh.



The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done.

The exchange for a World Title shot was a good idea but you'd have to earn it, otherwise it makes it pointless. Defend it five times to earn that right.

Take it too seriously with this policy talk.
E-feds man.
If the person has a track record strip them, if it's out of the norm for someone give them some slack.

I'd always lose.

Boo it.

Theres no community feel on this site anymore. Remember when people would review stuff? Don't tell me that it happens off the board because it did way back when and people still posted reviews. Genuinely the best thing about the cards is Sam's run down because it shows someone actually read something. The board is bare empty, just promo, promo, match, match with zero banter. I used to love reading peoples feedback, whether it was for my own stuff or not. Just don't get into the "I'll half ass review some stuff so they review mine" because those people are the worst.
Sam is OG.
Be like Sam.

If people agree, then people agree.
If not, then it should be fair. Don't force people to do certain things.

Also, save a finisher.



Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

Reviews.
Maybe take some of the chit chat to the boards so this place doesnt look dead half the time.



If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

People still take this too seriously. There's probably a few of you thinking "he's not even here anymore".

The person thinking that.
You. I'm talking about you.

Lighten up, enjoy yourselves, love one another.



Thank you
You're welcome.
I will take my HOF ring now.

The Survey


What do you like most about XWL?

The professionalism, I'm still in awe of how badass this forum is after eight years and how hard the admins work to keep this ship sailing. (I was entering 8th Grade when I first joined ffs and now I'm engaged at 22, David, Sam and Austin are still kicking ass along with the new admins)




What do you like least about XWL?

The lack of community. Now the Discord server helps out in that we text each other about random shit SOMETIMES, and that we can get in contact with people to do our matches. Other than that, there's no community at all, remember when Adam would post hilarious memes after every match like he was his own one man XWL Reddit thread? Remember when Zander would basically cut a promo saying how good/bad something was? Remember mischief (Really aging myself I know) if you were to tell me in 2013 that XWL/SOOL would merge I would have marked (lol) just because the only thing it really had over XWL was that everyone would be in parties with each other, hanging out like bros and creating bonds with each other (sorry to my ex SOOL dudes if that sounds like a diss) I'm not saying we should force everyone into Xbox Live parties but I feel like XWL missed the boat big time not using the best part about Xbox Live (because the forum was lit enough with what I said earlier)



When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?'

Booking has always been spot on in my opinion even when I was a little shit back in the day, shout out to Admins!




From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it.

Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

I love the acknowledgement of needing to spice things up and give more people opportunities, its really something that has brought me back to this league. Using a feud to "jumpstart" a title though scares me, it seems counterproductive to the "land of oppurtunity" idea that jumpstarts the league to begin with. I think using a feud for a title like that should only be a "Break in case of emergency" situation.




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

The league as it stands cannot handle a third title. What I think we should do (which is off the wall in terms of XWL) is to just have a "fun" title, it still has to have promos/canon with the league, but why not have it be something where its defended almost all the time or like an Xtreme/24/7 mix (Like in 2009 if yall go into the title history) in the Discord where we could just have a lot of matches for it (with leniency on playing 100% fair to make the matches a lot more fun) rather than creating another workhorse division that XWL as we know it can't handle. It would go a long way in getting rid of the stigma that there's no community and we take this league too seriously




We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

If people don't put in effort, don't reward them but punishments should be doled out if someone is not responding at all to someone's messages about a match or don't reach out to the admin team about it no matter how big or small they are. It SHOULD NOT be swept under the rug.



In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed. If one member put in the effort and it was not returned, then that member will automatically receive the victory for the match in question. If neither opponent can provide evidence that the match was at the very least attempted to get done, then both parties will receive a loss. This was a difficult decision to make on our part, but it was one we as a team feel is a necessary reaction to multiple (both public and private) disputes and dilemmas involving communication and matches. Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

:tna: This is more than fair and I 100% agree with this new policy, I also feel like if someone forfeits their match that week cause they don't want to/wants to put the person over/shitty connection then it should be a rule where the other person just does a write up and its all cool, person who doesn't do their match doesn't get penalized.I'm saying this should be a rule just to put it into everyone's minds that this is an option and not to just fuck off cause the admins will be mad since you couldn't get your match done due to shitty connection with your opponent hypothetically. (not saying oh no I was penalized for it, just saying) I also feel like again, if someone doesn't even reach out or TALK to you about your match, that's a huge problem, its a fuck you to your opponent AND the admin team who bust their asses doing everything for your enjoyment

Please stop with the predictions contests. WWE is in the shitter and if we're not gonna do AEW ones then there's no point. I do think we should think of new creative fun things, like idk video game tournaments? I also think Storytime with Sam should just be the XWL Newsletter with everyone mentioned because I fucking loved that back in the day (if someone's a lazy fuck then just troll their ass like yall used to do to me and AVG lol)

I'm all in favor for Rule B, PLEASE don't approve Rule A. Major reversals and then hitting a big move are the best parts of XWL matches and that would completely change the style people who have played the game for years have played. If you can't hit an exciting finisher after pulling off the craziest reversal in history, why are we even playing/watching the matches?




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

If there is a better way to make them look then I'm sure admins will implement it, presentation has always been perfect.




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

I wish I could just hop into a party on Xbox with admins/members who I haven't met and play games and do whatever, it honestly just feels like we're in 2002 (the bad parts like why you know, no one uses forums anymore) Shout out to Jerry, Dash, Sloth and Bofa doing that. While Pats of all people can't snap my fingers and make us all sing kumbiya in a Party, I feel like if we focus on the community then the rest of the league will fix itself.




Thank you

If there was a topic we didn't address that you feel is important and would like to address please feel free to include it at the bottom of your survey response. This is meant to be a community activity, where people can read each other's responses and provide their own. The end goal is discussion,progress, and everyone coming together to help better the league we all enjoy.

Please try to be a community guys, if you like a promo, post a reply and let that person know how badass they are! Vote on the PPV Awards dammit, I promise to start doing this starting next week and if anyone ever needs me for anything, a feud, someone to game with or talk to about anything I'm here, here's to another 11 years of XWL!

The Survey


What do you like most about XWL?

Definitely the community aspect, all different people, different walks of life, living in different places across the globe, yet we all come together to simply enjoy wrestling with one another. It's like one big dysfunctional family that's overcame obstacle after obstacle and persevered for eleven years now, we've pretty much outlasted every other fed that operates the way we do that I know of, on xbox at least, and that speaks volumes as to how determined that people that makes the wheels go round in this place are to keep it running at a high level, and arguably even more so to the dedicated members who consistently put effort in day after day, week after week, month after month for years on end, through the bad times and good there's always at least a handful of people doing their part to make this place awesome, to those names, ya'll know who you are, I salute you and say thank you.



What do you like least about XWL?

Easy, controversy. That comes with the territory every now and again when you're a dysfunctional family like us, but most of the time a resolution is reached that keeps everyone from biting each others heads off, key words there being most of the time. It's just what happens over time, sometimes issues arise, gotta take the bad with the good, but overall I think the admins do a great job of nipping the problems in the bud when they arise.



When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

Overall I think the booking if perfectly fine, if there's a storyline that needs a certain match on upcoming cards, I've almost never encountered any sort of problem with making that happen. In regards to general booking, would more triple threat's and four way's be nice? sure, hell random tag matches for people who ain't in stories would be interesting as well, but the fact is almost everytime the bookers go out of their way to do cool stuff like that? the people don't do their due diligence to get those things done, it's an unfortunate fact but a fact at that, when people wanna show more hustle and get the cool opportunities done on time? then I'm sure more will come down the road, until then, the way it is now is perfect.

Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

I think the way things are done now is all in all the perfect balance, the right opportunities are in large part handed out at the right times and to the right people and most of the time we're rewarded with solid champions and solid feuds over titles. If the admins just gave away new opportunities at every title every month, that would be a case of them giving giving giving and getting little in return. People need to earn their opportunities, and the way the system works now in large part ensures exactly that, people who are consistent around here get opportunities where as people who aren't? unless it's an emergency scenario they don't, and that's the way it should be, you want something? go earn it, not everything should be handed to people.



The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

I know the track record of that belt has been poor but I felt it was doomed from the start, from the moment the Elite Title came to be, until the rebrand, no one outside of Lazy and a select few others made any attempt to elevate that title. I do however feel that we should have a third title tho, if both men's singles titles are in one on one feuds most of the time, I feel a third title with a little more booking variety should be out there, and it's the same title I suggested when the decision was made to rebrand the Elite title into the TV title. I believe we should resurrect the United States Heavyweight Championship. I know people have brought up the idea of maybe having some type of function where if you make a certain number of defenses of the title that you may cash it in for a world title shot, to me? I don't like that idea at all, it devalues the championship in my opinion. This title should be a title people WANT to hold and WANT to elevate to the level of the other titles, and strapping gimmicks to it like we did the Elite title when it launched would simply doom it from the start. I do believe there is a need for a third title, and the U.S. is the perfect one, it has history and lineage around here, we go off bringing in some gimmick belt it's gonna kill the thing from the start, let's bring the U.S. Title back and keep it pure.



We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed. With that said, there are two routes that we could take. This is where you as the members of XWL have a voice to let us know how you would like this league to run because after all, we are a community more than anything else. Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

I think the way we have it right now, where it's pretty relaxed enforcement is the right balance tbh. We average what one or two new people that stick around a year if that? We should be keeping the people we have around here happy as much as possible, for me personally, I'm around my computer 80% of the time when I'm not asleep, but with my current situation at home that doesn't always mean I can get a match done or type out a segment, for me to get enjoyment out of that I need to be able to focus and not be interrupted eighty times whilst trying to play a match or type out a segment, but that's my reality right now. At the end of the day I still get 95% of my things done and dusted on time and never receive flak for it. I think another big part is communication with the admins, if there's a week or two or however long where you won't be able to do stuff? Just talk it out with the admins and they're always understanding. All in all the way we do it right now is perfect imo.



In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed. If one member put in the effort and it was not returned, then that member will automatically receive the victory for the match in question. If neither opponent can provide evidence that the match was at the very least attempted to get done, then both parties will receive a loss. This was a difficult decision to make on our part, but it was one we as a team feel is a necessary reaction to multiple (both public and private) disputes and dilemmas involving communication and matches. Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

Perfectly fine imo, you gonna accuse someone of something? bring the proof to the table to back it up, otherwise save your cooked up stories for someone else. If you screwed up and deep down you know it's your fault the match didn't get done? just man up and talk it out with the admins, be honest, yeah you'll get the loss but it'll show them you have some integrity and honesty and that'll go a long way.



We have always tried to bring our members together as a community where you can post promos, do matches, and other things. Lately, other things haven’t been working out for us. PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

I think that Stomping Grounds card was just THEE worst time to bring back the predictions imo, it was a show that was the worst hyped outside of the Saudi shows in years, and half the arena being curtained off reflected that, turned out to be a decent show tho, but when it comes to predictions how the show turned out doesn't really matter in regards to getting people to fill em out. I think we should give people another chance, perhaps at Extreme Rules, maybe SummerSlam, I think the turnout will be better as a result, if it's still only like five or six people replying? then I'd ditch the predictions tbh. I also think there should be tiered rewards for the top three, maybe first place gets 35, second gets 25, third gets 15. All in all though if the idea gets canned then I don't think it's the end of the world and people around here can't say they didn't have their chance to participate. As for the awards I think they need to stay, it ties into most people's general consensus from these survey's that more feedback and interaction is needed from people around the boards, at the same time tho? if people want em to stick around? they gotta show it and participate. I myself am guilty of not providing my votes for the last show and I apologize for that. I think part of the reason people don't end up participating is alot of times our ppv's follow this format, an opener in the 1st week, in some cases NOTHING ELSE until the 2nd week, and usually 75% of the ppv's content going up on the last day, the two week fatigue I feel gets to people tbh, I don't know how to fix it per say, but I think something needs to be done in that regard, if almost nothing goes up in the 1st week? then why do we give people 2 weeks? the excuse has always been because they get more time to make the ppv stuff extra special, that's true in SOME people's cases, but that's far from the case with everyone. If you lit a fire under people's ass and said look, gotta get your stuff up in 1 week like normal shows? I feel you'd get the same turnout from people just in a much quicker fashion and at a much better pace that doesn't bog the league down in 2 week at a time slumps, it really kills the momentum at times imo.



The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted. This self-imposed rule is when prior to the match, opponents make an agreement not to utilize a finishing maneuver during either of the aforementioned circumstances (A and B). What are your initial thoughts on this topic? Do you think it should be made into a standard rule for all members to follow at all times? Should that rule be exclusively regulated to title matches? Would you prefer to keep things as they are with the "Gentleman's Rule?" Feel free to make a case for the permitting/restriction of both A and B, neither A nor B, or even if you're partial to having a rule put in place for A, but not B (or vice versa). We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

I'm gonna come right out and be blunt with this because to me it's so goddamn simple, and how some people who play this game week in and week out don't realize it, or don't care about realizing it? I just don't understand. When it comes to major reversals that lead into a finisher that either A. counts against you on the fin total or B. can cause you to be pinned in the match, THEY ABSOLUTELY 100% SHOULD BE OUTLAWED!!! Simple as that, I don't wanna hear this stuff about the reversals looking cool and it leading to cool endings, B.S., you clearly ain't played this game very much if that's the case, I touch it a few times a month and I can tell you that there's not some grand variety of major reverse animations that make a match look superb. You wanna use em throughout the match? or on a finisher that's for a SPOT and NOT COUNTING towards the fin total? by all means, I'm all for it, but the bottom line here is FAIR IS FAIR, and justifying winning a match against your opponent against a finishing move that was IRREVERSABLE due to the major reversal that happened beforehand, it's far from fair, and sugarcoating it with the excuse that it's all good because the ending looked cool? It's absolute nonsense and the most clear cut decision out there imo.

Now, where my opinion changes is when it comes to hitting someone with a finisher WHEN THEY HAVE NO REVERSALS, to me? that should be perfectly legal. And for those who can't grasp the difference between this and the major reverse finisher argument, it's also quite simple. You CANNOT reverse a finisher after you've been major reversed, it's 100% OUT OF YOUR CONTROL. It's also true that you CANNOT reverse a finisher when you have no reversals, but here lies the difference, the amount of reversals you have at any given time? it's ABSOLUTELY IN YOUR CONTROL. If you don't know how to strategically manage your reversals by this point in the game cycle, then I'd say hit the practice arena or something because it's not rocket science, it's pure strategy, and it once again comes down to being hit with a major reverse finisher NOT BEING IN YOUR CONTROL and being hit with a finisher when you have no reversals ABSOLUTELY BEING IN YOUR CONTROL.

If we keep it the way we have it now with the gentleman's rule available as long as both parties agree? then I'm fine with that as well, but in no way shape or form do I want major reverse finishers being brought into every match I play due to some rule change, it would ruin a big chunk of the fun from a gameplay perspective in this league imo.



Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

I think when possible we should keep Sam's amazingly well done stories on every card and also have a special graphic made for each week's main event. Outside of that I think the ppv and site graphics are in large part always on point, if the admins ever get some cutting edge technology in their hands and find a way to revamp this site one day in a way that won't ruin it then woohoo, but until that day comes I think things are about as good as they can get right now tbh.



If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

Right now it'd be 2 things, I think ppv lengths should be cut from 2 weeks to 1, and I think we should have a yearly NJPW G1 Style Tournament, we did something similar with the HBK Classic and although the aftermath was a letdown, in large part due to myself dropping Samoa Joe and Austin dropping Bobby Roode, I feel the tournament itself was a much needed change of pace, with the right tweaks here and there I believe an X-1 tourney every year could become an absolute highlight of this league and I wanna see it happen!



Thank you

If there was a topic we didn't address that you feel is important and would like to address please feel free to include it at the bottom of your survey response. This is meant to be a community activity, where people can read each other's responses and provide their own. The end goal is discussion,progress, and everyone coming together to help better the league we all enjoy.

If I think of something before the deadline to this survey I'll go ahead and add it in, nothing that comes to mind right now though.

PostSubject: Re: The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition!   The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition! EmptySun Jul 07, 2019 2:00 pm

The Survey


What do you like most about XWL?

100% the people. You guys are so easy to get on with and just good people in general. You guys make it so easy to want to be in this league and do stuff which is what makes me want to do this in the first place. You guys are so friendly and make it so easy for me and considering where I live it makes it so much easier to do things here because of what you guys do.




What do you like least about XWL?

The fact you guys live in America and not the UK so the timezones can be crazy to work with however you guys always go above and beyond what you need to in order to me to be involved and I can't thank you enough for that.




When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I get booked fine no complaints on my end. I know I can be more off a nightmare to get stuff done then what HBK was when he was on drugs but you guys are lenient but you guys also come down hard on me when needed (especially you david you always give me a kick in the backside when needed). My characters are always presented well so I again have no issues with that. When I can get things done you guys always give me good shit to do and when I disappear or drop off I get what I should get so for me everything is good. Match types generally for me are good. Anything that isn't a 1 v 1 for me can be troublesome but that's why you guys generally always keep me in singles matches.




From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

I think the way things are done now is perfect tbh. People who try and put effort in get chances and rewarded and that's how it should be. Again I can use myself as an example to this and I know people won't disagree. When I do promos get my matches done etc you guys reward me with opportunities like KOTR etc and when I disappear you make me work for it to gain trust back again it is how it should be.



The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

I like stunners idea here of making it the U.S. Title. I think people might gravitate to it more maybe if it is. For me every title we have means something to me. If i am competing for one I want to make it feel important and I want to hold that title. I remember when near the beginning when I challenged lazy for it and at the time we put the effort in we could to try make the title mean something or at least that is how I felt. Maybe a re branding like stunner suggests is the way forward and I do like the idea of the U.S. title

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

Again I don't think this needs changing and I can use myself as an example off this. Not many people bar probably David and maybe a few others no this but when I sort off disappeared at the back end of last year I was going through some tough personal shit and I was struggling to get things done. David always checked and made sure If I could or couldn't do shit and if it fell through always made sure that I still had something to do if I could the same for when I am away with work as long as I notify him everything's cool and when I don't put the effort in like I mentioned before I get a talking to not booked etc until I can prove that I can do shit again. This league is all about trust and trusting that people can get shit done and that trust is rewarded. However if you guys feel we need to be stricter I will fall in line with that as well and try my best to get shit done. This league has always been good for understanding stuff that is happening in peoples lives and that's down to the admins at the end of the day making this place easy enough to be around.



In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed.

I am cool with this bring it in.

I just always forget even when I am reminded I just forget to do it which is my fault not anybody else's just have so much shit going on in the background that I forget to do little things like that.



The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time.

We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

To me if you get hit by a finisher when you have no reversals left then that's your own fault for using them all up. I still can't make my mind up how I feel on the major reversal so I am gonna keep out of that discussion.




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

not that I can think off everything is good




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

At this moment in time I can't think off out

The Survey


What do you like most about XWL?

It gives me my creative niche that I need to survive. Often in life I am faced with my own issues and this allows me to escape. It's also a place to converse with my friends, those that I hold dear on another level than just XWL. It's just a community that I hold near and dear.




What do you like least about XWL?

The god damn game. Excuse my language but I am so over this game and how broken it can be. On top of that, there are certain parts of the community that really gets under my skin but that's a part of the territory. Lots of personailites.




When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

So, I was doing this. I was there. I've seen things.


Seriously though I feel it's wrong for me to comment on it considering I was in charge for so long of this during this past year. It's a hard job. Don't let it fool you.





From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it.

Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

As someone who was behind the scenes, it's hard to bring about challengers when everyone sucks. But a feud really fixed that one issue with the NA title. It's one of those situations that really sucks when two admins are in the title scene, but what can you do when they're the most deserving? Realize that if you haven't been put in a title shot, it's not due to admin abuse. It's because the admins weighed you in the discussion and you hadn't earned it. And trust me, I put several, SEVERAL people I don't like, at all, in title matches.




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

Honestly, at this point I don't see the point in a third title. Yes, it's a chance for the little guys on the card, but no one is doing anything with it and it's obviously seen as a waste of a title at this point. Back when we had the US Title and Shuggz was beating my ass three months straight, I was making this title mean something to me personally. But that was a me decision, not an admin decision. Currently, no one is making that choice. So trash it, pal.




We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

Don't change the rules, make people follow them. There isn't a problem with the rules, there's a problem with the members. When we reopened our doors in 2016 or whatever, we had like 10 guys. And it was one of the best years we ever had. I'll take 10 good guys over 20 guys who half ass everything.




In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed.

I love it. I don't have much past that.

I answer these things so I'm not sure what the issue was. I don't really care about predictions anymore, personally because I don't watch a lot of WWE sadly. But I do the ppv awards when I can. I don't think the issue is that people don't want to do these things, I think people just don't read.




The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time.

We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

Just let this be between members. It doesn't have to be an actual rule. It's in the game for a reason and there's no need to remove it.




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

More TCSI. That is all.




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

I don't have much of anything for this. I'd kill off Chad Gable and Chris Sabin so they'd die in infamy.

We're on big dysfunctional family, and it gives me a creative outlet and a reason to use my Adobe products


What do you like least about XWL?

the game and asshats some people in this league get/got under my skin and anger me greatly and the fact that opportunities are given to people but then they do nothing with it.


When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

You guys have done great with my characters, shoutout to the admins who took me out of the world title chamber to put CTE in the Tag Title one at my request and to David specifically for doing this Layla storyline with me for Becky


From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

You guys have taken the NA Title from meaning nothing to literally being ON PAR with the Womens Championship, that takes A LOT of work and David and Sam should be applauded for that. Decisions you guys have made over stripping and opportunities have been wonderful



The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

I'd like to see a Title that everyone can care about, I'd love a Hardcore Title  but thats asking a lot of people to care about. Personally I don't think we have the numbers to keep intrest in it. Plus it makes the IC Title feel more important and in association the Womens Division since both would only have two belts.



We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed. With that said, there are two routes that we could take. This is where you as the members of XWL have a voice to let us know how you would like this league to run because after all, we are a community more than anything else. Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

"Don't change the rules, make people follow them. There isn't a problem with the rules, there's a problem with the members." I agree 100% with what Tyler said here no need to change the rules.



In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed. If one member put in the effort and it was not returned, then that member will automatically receive the victory for the match in question. If neither opponent can provide evidence that the match was at the very least attempted to get done, then both parties will receive a loss. This was a difficult decision to make on our part, but it was one we as a team feel is a necessary reaction to multiple (both public and private) disputes and dilemmas involving communication and matches. Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

I think it's great, take this last week. I was super busy and didn't even try to message plus but i got on xbox after 4 days and saw he messaged 3 times so i gave him the win and stated it was my bad. That's how it should be.



We have always tried to bring our members together as a community where you can post promos, do matches, and other things. Lately, other things haven’t been working out for us. PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

I love you guys, so much but it's hard for me to care about the PPV Awards. I don't always have time to read everything so most of my votes are just spur of the moment stuff while i rescroll and quick read things. Predictions are iffy but i usually like them


The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted. This self-imposed rule is when prior to the match, opponents make an agreement not to utilize a finishing maneuver during either of the aforementioned circumstances (A and B). What are your initial thoughts on this topic? Do you think it should be made into a standard rule for all members to follow at all times? Should that rule be exclusively regulated to title matches? Would you prefer to keep things as they are with the "Gentleman's Rule?" Feel free to make a case for the permitting/restriction of both A and B, neither A nor B, or even if you're partial to having a rule put in place for A, but not B (or vice versa). We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

Between members, have them agree before hand.


Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

I need to get around to making a new intro, it adds a lot. Also I know everyone is waiting for Sami Files pt 3 FT Jay White. ALSO IF WE CAN JUST HEAR DAVID, AJ AND SAMS VOICE WE CAN ALL REST EASY I KNOW YOU'RE ALL THE SAME PERSON! WHY DON'T YOU PROVE ME WRONG COWARDS!


If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

more participation from members. thats basically it

You have my snapchat already, spud.

What do you like most about XWL?

I like expressing myself and unique storylines with the people and characters that I admire in professional wrestling. Because I don't really have anybody in my personal circle who even watch wrestling, excluding my brother, being in XWL gives me communication with a wide variety of friends that share the same enthusiasm that I do. I've made friends here that have lasted me 8 years and counting, and I don't see that changing any time soon fortunately.

What do you like least about XWL?

People saying things to each other just to be annoying or try to get under somebody's skin. That's something you can find anywhere, but it bothers me in particular especially now that I have to be professional and bite my tongue about it. We all, even myself, are guilty of it at some capacity sometimes, I just think it'd be easier if people didn't drop a comment just for the sake of being a pest and hearing themselves "speak."

When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I'm really happy with my booking. If I ever need a week off as one or more characters, it's easy to let the admin in charge of booking know. Being one of the members who has multiple characters, it can get a little hectic when they're all booked every week, but I think overall those in charge have done/do a great job at making sure that typically doesn't happen.

From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

Even though I was a part of it, none of us like feeling like we're taking opportunities away from other members. David and I taking over was an absolute last resort, and would likely not even have happened at all if I hadn't just won the #1 contendership right before it was stripped. I'm really happy with the way things have turned out with the North American Championship as a result and I hope that that continues after this feud. I think it was, again, a last resort and a worst case scenario that we had to make the best of with the two most deserving superstars at the time for the title (who just so happened to be played by two admins).

The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

I'd like to get rid of it for the time being until we can unanimously agree that we have the manpower to support an additional fun title, and then look into re-introducing a retro belt or bringing in something new.

We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

I just think the current rules need to be enforced. I think we give a relaxed enough time to accommodate the more casual, part-time members as well as the more dedicated full-time ones. Anything more lenient would just encourage the league to become a little more lazy in my opinion, and we'd probably see even less done and I don't think anyone here truly wants that to happen.

In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed.

Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

It's fair. Admit your wrongs if you have any, communicate any extensive circumstances, show me the receipts, or take your L and try again next week. Just talk to each other, never assume that your opponent is aware of your schedule and expect them to be able to comply with it on the last day of a card.

We have always tried to bring our members together as a community where you can post promos, do matches, and other things. Lately, other things haven’t been working out for us. PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

Don't look at me, I wasn't even planning on watching the PPV and I voted. I get what everyone's saying when they explain that Stomping Grounds wasn't exactly a hyped PPV, and while I agree I think this was more of a community support measure to just show that this is an activity that you actually want to see more of. Even if you weren't invested in these matches, if it was something you wanted to stick around, it doesn't take long to contribute and keep it alive.

The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted. This self-imposed rule is when prior to the match, opponents make an agreement not to utilize a finishing maneuver during either of the aforementioned circumstances (A and B). What are your initial thoughts on this topic? Do you think it should be made into a standard rule for all members to follow at all times? Should that rule be exclusively regulated to title matches? Would you prefer to keep things as they are with the "Gentleman's Rule?" Feel free to make a case for the permitting/restriction of both A and B, neither A nor B, or even if you're partial to having a rule put in place for A, but not B (or vice versa). We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

I don't have a fully developed, concise opinion on this just yet. I think the gentlemen's rule has worked out fine so far, but I also just hate major reversals. They are part of the game, but it's almost always an unintentional result that leaves you helpless. If you recklessly burn through all of your reversals and get spiked, that's on you, sister.

Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

I know it's a lot of work but I love the intro videos we used to have. It really brings more life and immersion into the league, for me at least, and it's always fun to let it the Anarchy theme song play while you read the stories (you're welcome~) and looking over the card, as well as seeing where your characters ended up in the video itself. I really do enjoy those whenever they're made.

If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

Reasonably, not much. I wish some people were more understanding and respectful of the amount of thought and effort that goes into making everything we do here equal and fair, but for every member who doesn't see that, there are multiple that do, so the good by far outweighs the bad for me. Thanks boys<3

What do you like most about XWL?

I love the ability to express myself and Wrestling ideas to a group of people that share the love for wrestling.

What do you like least about XWL?

It’s mostly the fact that people try way to hard to win sometimes instead of putting on a good show and I think that’s what it’s about in the end.

When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I like how I’m booked. If I had a problem with it I’d say something.

From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it.

The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

that reminds me of the Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins tag title reign. everyone was like, wait... they’re still champs? yeah. if you wanna be a good champ. make yourself known.

The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

The title has all the potential just not so great champions. no offense it’s just not considered as a title people want. they only want the main title it seems like but that’s not what it’s all about. Let’s all enjoy whatever place we are at and let our minds create a story.

We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment.

Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

I do believe that shit happens and sometimes you don’t feel like sitting down and writing promos. It does seem like a chore sometimes but when the creative juices flow it’s like magic. It shouldn’t feel like a job unless you want to make a big commitment

In light of recent events involving a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed.

Yes.

I don’t read promos like I should. I do enjoy everyone’s work when I get a chance. I just don’t feel like I would give you my honest pick for that so I don’t vote. Sorry. It’s not an huge deal to me.

The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time.

We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

If they’ve waste their reversals that’s their fault. but major reversals are another story. You’re helpless and all you did was try and do a move. So I think major reversals shouldn’t be used to win. No reversals? You’re SOL.

Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

The site is so fine I could call it daddy.

If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?
I just wish people looked at it like an actual show. Don’t always try and win all the time. It’s an art and a good match would be interesting to watch.

What do you like most about XWL?

Coming together with all sorts of people and creating these amazing stories. Even watching how others stories play out is really cool. Like, the twists, the turns, the foreshadowing...it's all so fun to follow.




What do you like least about XWL?

I feel like this changes depending on the week. One week it's hating how other admins can be successful but if I am there's always that one person to ruin it for me enjoyment wise. Another week it's the culture of some members who just don't seem to care about getting things done, or seeing why it's important to communicate and how easy it is to do so early into the week.




When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I'm the main booker now so it's a bit awkward for me to address this specific topic because of course I think I do okay...I do recognize however that we could try to be more spontaneous with some things, and maybe try to do specials within the shows to breakup the monotony from time to time, though I do believe it's better than it used to be. I'm of course always open to suggestions and ideas to freshen the shows up so if anyone has any lemme know.




From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

See, The North American Championship wasn't like The World Television Championship where it perhaps didn't have a place...it absolutely DID and does. The division has grown and expanded from the years prior and it's totally capable of supporting two titles. The issue lies in who we trusted to be in the position to kick this title off. Real life happens so I wouldn't really say we made a bad decision...it just fell apart after the crowning match, and unfortunately...the next champion we brought into things only drug it down even further. The N.A title never had a solid chance once it was finally introduced because the first two champions were utter flops. Which in turn makes no one care about the title because they weren't given a reason to. They saw who was representing it and had no desire to be involved because of that. Which is why the admins really wanted to use this "stripping" of the title as a way to really ramp up the hype factor of the title and who was involved.

A natural course was of course having Vince strip it and award it to the new number one contender, who funnily enough failed to defeat the stripped champion at the ppv 2 weeks before...THUS, it looks like a complete abuse of power and that is just money for an angle.

But with a classic villainous tale, you need a counterpart to that. You need someone to be wronged by the situation, someone to challenge the decision and the process itself. And when you look at my run as Alexa, because of my success as Natalya...Alexa was excluded from EVERYTHING. My first legitimate opportunity was that number one contenders match where Mandy beat me, and so since Mandy could get multiple opportunities, why not Alexa?

We could have rushed an Alexa Vs Mandy match at International Incident, but does that build interest in the match to rush it? Absolutely not. You need to create a genuine struggle and blatant show that Alexa is being excluded from opportunity. So since Mandy's story with Nikki Cross didn't get tied up because of that member dropping off the face of the earth activity wise...hey let's have that be who Mandy defends against. Because it gives Mandy some credibility, and it gives Mandy someone to face that isn't Alexa.

It was important too for us to really build the eventual legit title match, and that means the first one? Needed to be completely over the top and ridiculous. One thing Sam and I have prided ourselves on throughout our time working together with this N.A program is that we've really tried to go outside of the box and keep things fresh even if the overall topic is the same. So how does Alexa get an opportunity to challenge Mandy? BY HAVING HER BE A REPLACEMENT FOR SOMEONE WHO GOT REMOVED FROM THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER FOR HER BEST FRIEND'S TITLE...and if she agrees to compete in that match, then later on regardless of the outcome she'll get her match with Mandy the same night.

It gives the illusion of them trying to cover their ass like look you got two title opportunities in one night...and it pushes the absurdity to it's highest again when Alexa comes out that night, nearly beats Mandy and Mandy dqs herself. THEN WE ADD THE CHERRY ON TOP BY HAVING VINCE COME OUT AND RESTART THE MATCH WHEN ALEXA'S UNCONSCIOUS BODY IS CARTED INTO THE RING WHERE SHES IMMEDIATELY PINNED AS THE BELL SOUNDS TO GIVE MANDY A DEFENSE! ITS SO GOOD

Like sometimes a title needs a story, it needs something to sink your teeth into, and while I don't have everyone's assessment of what we've done I think we've given 110% to restoring this title's image and making it matter. I just wanted to give a bit of insight as to why we felt this was a correct course of action, rather than just getting rid of the title. The title wasn't the issue, it just never truly got it's fair shot at existing and that is really what we as admins try to keep in mind when it comes to titles, and the challengers for those titles.

Believe me, we want to do number one contenders matches and qualifiers, and all of that...but there's a time and a place for everything, and with everything it needs balance.

Nothing of course is perfect, so any feedback or criticism for our process is of course welcome but I think when it comes to N.A we wanted to give it the fix that we believed it needed in order to undo all the damage done from the jump.

It's kind of what we tried to do with The World Television Championship going into Final Stand, hey let's give these two members a platform to make something great with a best of 7...and it utterly sucked because of who was involved and their lack of actual dedication to own it. From champion to challenger getting the matches let alone the promos done was a disaster. So in cases like N.A we knew we had the right people (two trusted admins who were also two of the most active in the division, and a 2 PPV cycle to really make something happen.

I hate stripping champions of their titles because it's awkward and it's just never something we want to do...but ultimately we as admins try to ensure quality remains paramount because the day we stop caring is the day XWL becomes like all the other leagues that died. From title, to champion, to challenger, to the matches that are involved...it all needs to be monitored and kept to form.




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

Basically, it was a "good" idea in theory, but it just serves no purpose other than filler and it's not even like a good filler like another title could be instead. I think bringing back X-treme could be cool but as for now? Toss it in the trash and focus on fortifying the tag-team division because that is a title that truly needs love and support from those not involved in the main two men's scenes.




We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed. With that said, there are two routes that we could take. This is where you as the members of XWL have a voice to let us know how you would like this league to run because after all, we are a community more than anything else. Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

I don't want to have to change the activity expectation because I believe it's certainly fair and not expecting too much. For some members that have issues with that we have worked with so long as communication is open on both ends. It's simple, you work with us, you communicate, and we'll find a middle ground.




In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed. If one member put in the effort and it was not returned, then that member will automatically receive the victory for the match in question. If neither opponent can provide evidence that the match was at the very least attempted to get done, then both parties will receive a loss. This was a difficult decision to make on our part, but it was one we as a team feel is a necessary reaction to multiple (both public and private) disputes and dilemmas involving communication and matches. Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

I was livid with The Queen Of The Ring tournament, because the potential was so great, and the division, like EVERY SINGLE WOMAN in the division aside from the people who were picked up shortly after had something the coming month. NA/Womens/QOTR/Becky/Asuka #1 contenders match...it was great. And for two members to not really try to do their 1st round match? That pissed me off. I am patient about a lot of things but laziness is not one of those things. If you cannot do something for your characters, and have to excuse not doing AN IMPORTANT MATCH LIKE A CONTENDERS/TITLE/TOURNAMENT MATCH...by saying you did something as your other characters? You will be forced to drop down to a number of characters you can actually handle, that is basically the point we seem to be at.

Because we do tournaments so sparingly, and we had this planned to make an entire month of them really make it special, and there was just no sense in it. Read the card when it goes up on Monday or Tuesday, (BECAUSE IT LITERALLY TAKES A MINUTE) and then contact your opponent that day, DO NOT WAIT UNTIL SUNDAY.

But another member also that week unfortunately was M.I.A so that ruined another match...another match a member had connection issues so that ruined that one...it was just a hot mess. And when things like this happen it makes us not trust the members to handle things like tournaments. Which sucks because y'all nailed getting THREE Elimination Chamber Matches done.

Basically, communicate, plan, and if you do and your opponent doesn't? You're awarded the win because you at least tried, and that at the end of the day is all we ask. If any of the two members in that first match had just actually TRIED, and not just ONE day the first day of the card or the second to last from the other...then one of them would have advanced and the second round of the tournament could have been recovered.

Communication isn't hard y'all, it's really not.  




We have always tried to bring our members together as a community where you can post promos, do matches, and other things. Lately, other things haven’t been working out for us. PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

Like, I get some people either don't care about Prediction Contests, or don't have time or don't read PPVs (which really is what it boils down to) but we can't all say gee we need more of a community, and then not make the effort to actually help rebuild one,. Like, if people don't care about WWE prediction contests, what if instead we did XWL ones? I think it could be interesting to get like member theories on what they think will happen at the upcoming PPVs. And everyone here SHOULD care about XWL and what's going on so the WWE aspect doesn't really apply in that regard. Thoughts? And if two days isn't enough to read PPV/do your awards then can I get some suggestions on what it will take to get you to participate in PPV award voting? If The PPV ends on Monday at 4:30 do you need until Friday at 5:30 to vote? Is that fairer to your time/availability/desire to contribute since by that point you absolutely should have read what happened, right? Yes? No? Please reply your thoughts.

Also, can we get into the habit of doing what Matt (P1) currently is for Coronation? He's giving feedback and his candid thoughts about what's posted. I plan to fully review his Page/Revival introduction once I get some other stuff done but like, if we have thoughts or comments about something that happens on the show, can we post it in the thread so it's not as Shuggz said just a bunch of promos and matches posted with no actual community involvement? Like I MISS the old days when someone won a title, and there'd be like 5 messages afterward like CONGRATULATIONS WOO ETC. Just something to show that community factor, like discord is great and I think it's helped people communicate outside of the site/xbox...however, the site needs love too.




The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted. This self-imposed rule is when prior to the match, opponents make an agreement not to utilize a finishing maneuver during either of the aforementioned circumstances (A and B). What are your initial thoughts on this topic? Do you think it should be made into a standard rule for all members to follow at all times? Should that rule be exclusively regulated to title matches? Would you prefer to keep things as they are with the "Gentleman's Rule?" Feel free to make a case for the permitting/restriction of both A and B, neither A nor B, or even if you're partial to having a rule put in place for A, but not B (or vice versa). We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

The Gentlemen's Rule for those who aren't aware is basically an agreement that you either won't do, or any finishers you do that go against the agreement don't count to your score. Basically, finishers will not count if they're done when your opponent has no reversals (and this is that person also agreeing not to abuse not having reversals to avoid being hit by a finisher which no one agreeing would ever abuse anyways) and not when they are majored as well. It makes matches not delve into the "tryhard" side of things and those matches have been fun and gone very well.

I'd kind of like this to be the rule going forward for all title matches, and keep normal matches where the above can still be done so people who don't see an issue can do it normally, and people who do see an issue don't have to deal with it when it comes to title matches. Thoughts?




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

God, I wish I had the time but The XWL Newsletter would be a breath of fresh air. Like, interviews with people "in character" to promote feuds outside of the shows, or upcoming big matches etc. A power ranking (WHICH WHAT SUCKS ABOUT THESE IS PEOPLE ALWAYS DISPUTE IT) it would just be a fun cool thing to give the site something that isn't shows/availability threads.

We def need a show intro video but I'm incapable of doing those myself so I've been on the mercy of those who are.

Really what I'd love too and I'm probably the only one, but I'd love a monthly discussion topic. Like, something pertaining to XWL where like this survey we can all communicate our thoughts on it and any ideas we may have regarding whatever it is. Like, "hey the community aspect of XWL needs work, what are some things we all like doing that we could maybe make a thing of?"

or

"hey are you thinking of this title, do you feel like it's been supported well these past few months? what are some things you'd like to see us bring to it in the future? It's been a while since it's had a fatal four way thoughts on that? what characters would you like to compete for it?"

I just think things like that, gets everyone's input and then it's not just the admins majority of the time making all the discussions in house and the decisions. The issue with doing something like this is of course participating. Because like, we have to make these surveys "mandatory" to get 100% participation but maybe since it's one topic a month people wouldn't feel like it's too much to contribute? Can I get some thoughts on this idea or if you'd even be interested or think it's a good idea?

Hell some of them could even be member submitted topics. Like, say you had an issue with a booking decision we had, you could say hey I really didn't care for this, do you think for the next monthly topic we could talk about it and what everyone themselves thought? Like in my head it'd add so much to the site just to have everyone involved.




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

I'd like it if we could get to a place culture wise in XWL where not everything had to be a rule. Like, this past year a few things that were never issues before, were issues, and it led to us having to alter things in order to prevent them in future...and it's like, things that apply to our mindset when it comes to matches, that shouldn't have to be rules. I think we just need to have more fun, in every aspect. I want to have fun booking, I want to know that I can do a tag team match with random partners one week, and trust it will get done. Like, when is the last time we had a Six Man Tag that combined some stories that wasn't setup by you the members for a story? I'd love to be able to know that I can maybe throw The Tag-Team Champions and The I.C Champion or World Champion and have them face their challengers to close out the final show before a PPV AND THAT IT WILL GET DONE AND NOT JUST BE SOME STORY BS.


I'd like it if Sam as hard as he works on stories could have more people contribute the week before so he can keep them fresh and have variety. Because the stories are just incredible and like Shuggz said a true highlight of Anarchy shows.

I'd like it if people got together on their own, and just did random promos together one week that had very little impact on something long term. Like, none of you will remember this. But once upon a time ago there was a stable of Evan Bourne, Dolph Ziggler, and Michelle McCool. And one day they went to the local casino...and man, the cameos from so many superstars in little casino type things in that one segment was so cool and different. Why can't we all come up with an idea one week and have like an in character forum where every male/female is present and we can all get the "stage" and say whatever is on our minds about the current XWL product?

LIKE MAN, I'D LOVE TO KNOW WHAT A LOT OF THE SUPERSTARS THINK ABOUT MR. MCMAHON AND MANDY ROSE'S SHENANIGANS. Why can't there be more involvement in each other's things? Interviews from our characters promoting a big match we're not involved in, just to give their thoughts.

I just feel like XWL needs to come together, everyone has their own stories and there's very little overlapping. We need to come together and have more fun.

What do you like most about XWL?
The two main things are the community and both coming up with fun stories and reading the stories other people come up with.




What do you like least about XWL?
The game. This shit trash. I know the admins here have a lot of control over that so get on it.




When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I feel that my booking is fair. When I’m absent and not posting as much my booking isn’t great, and when I’m more active I notice my booking get better. That makes sense to me.




From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

Considering my recent history with opportunities, I can’t really complain about that lol. As for the North American Championship, I know some people have had problems with it, and it certainly isn’t the most ideal way for something like that to be handled. But personally I see why it kind of had to be done to help elevate the title, and don’t have that much of a problem with it so long as it doesn’t become the normal.




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

Honestly at this point I’d say just get rid of the third title. A lot of fun ideas have been tried, but at the end of the day they’ve ended up being just that, ideas, with not nearly enough follow-through.




We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

This is a tough one because if I say heavily enforce the rules I turn into a bit of a hypocrite because on multiple occasions I technically should have lost characters as a result of inactivity. But you also end up with characters who just disappear out of nowhere and I feel like something better can be done. So I’d say start enforcing the activity rules harsher than you are currently, but I think it would make sense to rework them in some way.




In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed.

Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

I mean “put in the effort to get your match done” sounds perfectly fair to me to be honest. I support this.

PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

I actually am a big fan of the PPV Awards and Prediction Contests, these last two I honestly just kept putting it off until eventually I ran out of time. I support them in their current format.

We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

Honestly I think I’m fine with things the way they are. I don’t see a need for it become an actual rule, considering pretty much every match I’ve been in both me and my opponent have both just followed this without even talking about it. If it’s a rampant issue in other matches that I’m not aware of then maybe, but I think things are fine now.




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

People should use the XWL.com section more. It’s a cool way to do random stuff that not enough people take advantage of. Like that’s the perfect spot to do some of that random interviews about other storylines that David brought up.




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

Make me good at this game.

What do you like most about XWL?

The atmosphere. I have fun with everyone.


 

What do you like least about XWL?

The length between some of the ppv’s. Sometimes it’s tough to keep a feud going if we have 2 ½ months in between a ppv.



 

When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I feel as if I'm being booked fairly to a sort. Now that I'm going down to one the booking should pick up.

Do away with it. Focus on what we have. I don’t see it getting any better with how it is currently going

Honestly I think the predictions are being affected main roster wise due to the fact of the storylines and overall boredom on top of it kinda being predictable in a way. So maybe go with the Big 5 ppvs and maybe the takeovers and see where that goes.

XWL.com feature, maybe it could be explained just as to what it is the section can be used for, especially with some of the newer ones around.

Personally I think if it’s just the first finisher it should be okay.  Especially in title matches given there are 3 you can burn a major reverse and give the match a nice looking spot. Regarding lack of reversals, gentleman's rule should play out.

What do you like most about XWL?

The members are pretty cool and the Discord madness keeps things interesting.




What do you like least about XWL?

Lack of activity from some. Folks will seem really excited to feud or participate in a segment, then they'll put very little/zero effort into said feud or segment.




When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I have been booked wonderfully and the booker should get a raise in their imaginary admin salary.  Razz

I don't see a problem with how you're currently doing it, but maybe a ranking system like UFC has? It could be voted on weekly (monthly?) by the community, that way no one would have an issue with who the top few contenders are seeing they voted them in those spots.

HEAR ME OUT!

Who's to say we can't keep a third title for the men, but also add a third title for the women?

Now I know it might seem like a lot of work to some having to edit their CAWs or having to make a CAW of their wrestler in a different gender in order to record matches, BUT what if we introduce an Intergender Championship? I get it that man/woman or woman/man violence is a no-no, but if you watch any wrestling show in 2019 (not named WWE or NJPW) you see intergender matches all the time. Not just that, imagine the doors that will be opened. The segments and feuds!

Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed. With that said, there are two routes that we could take. This is where you as the members of XWL have a voice to let us know how you would like this league to run because after all, we are a community more than anything else. Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

Enforce it as always.




In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed. If one member put in the effort and it was not returned, then that member will automatically receive the victory for the match in question. If neither opponent can provide evidence that the match was at the very least attempted to get done, then both parties will receive a loss. This was a difficult decision to make on our part, but it was one we as a team feel is a necessary reaction to multiple (both public and private) disputes and dilemmas involving communication and matches. Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

Maybe it was SOOL, but I'm pretty sure we had a no-show rule at some point? Like three strikes (three no-shows) and you lose your character? Maybe we could do that but with a reset on the strikes after so much time being active? The person attempting to get the match done wouldn't get a strike.




We have always tried to bring our members together as a community where you can post promos, do matches, and other things. Lately, other things haven’t been working out for us. PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

Honestly, I don't even click on the things. I used to and they were cool, but maybe I've lost interest in participating in those things? Like, it took me two weeks to even click on this survey. I don't know man.




The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted. This self-imposed rule is when prior to the match, opponents make an agreement not to utilize a finishing maneuver during either of the aforementioned circumstances (A and B). What are your initial thoughts on this topic? Do you think it should be made into a standard rule for all members to follow at all times? Should that rule be exclusively regulated to title matches? Would you prefer to keep things as they are with the "Gentleman's Rule?" Feel free to make a case for the permitting/restriction of both A and B, neither A nor B, or even if you're partial to having a rule put in place for A, but not B (or vice versa). We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

A. I personally don't like the major reversal fish out of water mechanic. I've hit finishers and signatures on opponents in this state before and it made me feel so scummy. I don't like it. Why do you make me feel this way 2k?

B. Although I don't think I'd try to win while an opponent has no counters, that's kind of their own dumb ass fault for allowing themselves to get to that position (although I've been there a lot to the point where people were begging me to stop wasting my counters). I'd say if they let their reversals get to that point, it's their loss.




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

This red crap is cramping my style. I know we changed back to the color within the last year (maybe more idk), but it's too aggressive. Maybe we go back to Green?... Blue? OOooooooo, have we tried Gold yet???

Also, get to talking about that member voted ranking system I mentioned earlier.




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

Recruiting/Advertising squad? I know this is pretty retro, but leagues used to have one or two people that would go on forums, message boards, and social media advertising the league.

Now I like the members here but when someone joins or posts a contract, they always seem to be familiar faces. I remember a time where XWL would get a bunch of new faces every month. Idk, maybe I'm just talking doo doo but I think we need some new energy in this bitch

The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition! Empty
PostSubject: Re: The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition!   The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition! EmptyThu Jul 18, 2019 10:23 am



What do you like most about XWL?

I love having a place where I can write, and be creative as well as read other people’s writing and stories. I love the people on discord, and being able to speak about topics like wrestling/video games/ etc. Members are all really awesome. Fun to meet new ones that weren’t around during my last run, and reconnect with the old ones who were. It really is a cool community.  




What do you like least about XWL?

Well going off what I said above. I like that this is a place to write and be creative, as well as read other people’s writing and stories. That being said, it seems like a lot of ppl don’t feel motivated to read other ppls stuff, and it seems like promoing might have become a chore to some. it would be nice if there were more reviews, or XWL.com exclusives where ppl had their characters be asked about the events in XWL other then their own stories, or a roundtable like in TNA would be cool, or a newsletter. Something that would get us all together in character, as opposed to only being involved in our own storylines. I think a ranking system would be cool, would make it seem like your work is being noticed.


I hate how hard it is to get matches done, and maybe it’s because ppl hate the game, idk, i just started playing it so can’t really feel the same way.. It would be cool to be able to do more tag and three vs three matches. Maybe we can find out who is on around the same times, like three different time slots. That way the admins know who can be easily booked together in random tags and who can’t. It would be cool to be able to do more feud related or title related tag matches. Like IC champ and someone vs IC Contender and the other guys feud. Or tag champs and IC Champ vs contenders etc. I feel that triple threats and tag matches might spice things up and make ppl enjoy the game a little more hopefully.

I still don’t like the scrolling recent topics lol

I wish the admins had a forum or somewhere where they could post a weekly feedback, or like a what they’re thinking after the week. Maybe with the card. Would be nice to know what’s on the admin’s minds. It seems like there is a lot of tension between the admins and members sometimes.






When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I like my booking, like a lot.
10/10




From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

I think things have been fair. Since I’ve been back championship matches have either been decided by contender matches, KOTR, QOTR, or rematches. So I’m cool with that. I think that Mandy vs. Alexa was necessary, and very well done. The title matters, and is going to be more sought after because of that. Yall better watch out when Paige decides to compete. In the meantime it’s the Tag Team Champs that need to be watching their backs.




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

I think the Xtreme Title was always interesting. But it usually fell victim to the same thing that the TV Title has. So maybe just stick with two titles? And focus on the tag?

Or do a 24/7 Title? Make some promo only stipulations for it? So it’s a promo title. Like the admins give it to someone who’s been promoing a lot. And then every week the admins secretly decide on an opponent, and if they out promo the current champ that week, then in an XWL Exclusive they can do a bit where they win the title. Or something along those lines. It would be cool to have a Title where you don’t have to win a match on 2K to win it tho. Especially for those mid carders who can’t seem to ever win contender matches and whatnot lol.




We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

Maybe a strike policy, where if you don’t promo or do your match for a week, and don’t reach out on discord to either your opponent or an admin about it you get a strike. And you can erase strikes by getting multi man matches done. And maybe 3 strikes means no title matches for X amount of time or something, and 5 strikes loses the character or something, idk.




In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed.

Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

I think that’s fair. These should be issues for regular matches, not title matches. If you can’t get your title matches done, and don’t have a valid excuse, you should get the L

Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

PPV Awards I like, I voted as best as I could seeing as it was my first week back lol. I think maybe ppl need a little more time to vote because everyone posts everything at the end of the week.

For the Predictions, I honestly don’t watch enough WWE to predict. I watch the youtube bits on WWE’s youtube page that look appealing. But I’m just not interested in WWE enough to want to predict what’s going to happen in a PPV that I didn’t even know all the matches for… Like I’d get most of them wrong. I’d do it for AEW lol.

That being said I like David’s idea about XWL predictions. For every week maybe like 3 highlighted matches. And PPV all the matches.

I’m BRAND new to this game. All these new features confuse me. I’m still used to 2K16. I don’t even know a major reversal is, or the gentleman’s rule. Tbh I don’t really want to win matches yet because I’m afraid I’ll break one of these rules lol. I’m just trying to do cool spots. Also I just found out we only do 2 finishers now.




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

Just more community based stuff as I mentioned in my previous answers. The site is solid tho as always.

Maybe when the cards are posted, and I know this is asking a lot from the admins, but maybe when the cards are posted one of the admins does the opening commentary? That way A) we get to see what the admins are liking and reading and think of the show from the open. And B) that way we don’t have that awkward 3 day pause where no one wants to start the show.




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

More chatter on the site’s threads. Like the forums.

And more XWL.com Exclusives.

The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition! Empty
PostSubject: Re: The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition!   The XWL Member Survey: 2019 Edition! EmptyThu Jul 18, 2019 8:01 pm

What do you like most about XWL?


The thing I like most about XWL has to be the people. Sure, there are some I don't talk to that often, some I may not even be "best friends" with, but those that I have had the pleasure to meet have made the entire experience worth it. I also love that there is a group of people like this, that can come together, no matter their differences for a common passion and love of Professional Wrestling.



What do you like least about XWL?

The Inactivity. there's a huge roster when you go and look, yet finding truly active characters not in a feud is a hassle? I wish we had more active members, and less members holding 3 characters when they are only active as 1.



When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

I'm on the admin team so I book myself.....JK. in all honesty I like how I'm booked. there's plenty of variety, I'm only active as one character at the moment so "more" isn't an option, and yes I'm being presented well. IMO if your not happy with how your booked, that's probably your own fault. the admin team is always listening to the voiced opinions and requests of league members. if your upset due to how you've been booked recently, SPEAK UP.



From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it.

Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

Again I'm an admin, so I'm slightly biased. However, I feel like we have done everything we can to be fair with giving opportunities when deserved. if you win and promo you WILL get number one contenders matches. if you loose and promo, you will more than likely still be put into the picture. if however, you win matches yet fail to promo, or hell fail to do your matches AND promo, then 9 times out of 10, you won't get shit. not when the rest of this league puts forth so much time and effort.



The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

I was one of the first admins to pitch it and here's my opinion. Kill it off immediately. its had no "Amazing" runs that grant it an extended stay, there's MUCH more bad history with the title than good, and its seen (in my eyes) as something people are sent after or go after when they have nothing else. that's not what a championship is or should be. I believe we should focus on 2 male title, 2 women titles, and tag titles. that's by far enough to keep enough new faces in the title picture on a regular basis.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

And here we are. Where I voice my opinion on my job and one of my duties as an admin. keeping up with activity. Weather it be match activity or promo activity. I believe I should have kept up with it MORE than I actually did. I believe this should be strictly enforced, not because I don't want people to have lives or because I want to be a dick. its because, when you think about it were really not asking to much. we as you promo one every 3-4 weeks, and attempt to get your matches done. IF you cant handle that then you shouldn't be in the league (unless under special circumstances). if you have multiple characters and fail to do matches and promo as 2/3, I don't believe you have time to be 3 characters, you obviously only have time for one. so instead of taking a character that other people may actually be active with to just sit on them, why not be super active as 1 or 2, bringing them to the top tier of XWL?

I speak for me and me alone. I personally don't care for IRL predictions and such. im here for XWL. for matches, promos, and events that happen in XWL. so that's way I basically never participate in PPV predictions, also to do with I rarely watch them. as for voting, I dropped the ball and lost track of time, but love the PPV voting and think its an awesome league feature.

keep things as "Gentlemen Rule". its a feature in game so I don't think we can fairly "ban" it, yet most would rather it not happen. therefore have gentlemen rule and those that don't follow it will gain a bad reputation through the league as a try harder. tbh I thought this was just a "Silent unwritten law" of XWL that everyone just kinda knew, accepted, and followed.



Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

I wanna say I saw this a while back, but maybe a "superstar of the week" on the home page. or a scrolling "XWL Power rankings" 1-10? idk, I think its good as is tbh but more could always be added



If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

to end the Admin Abuse Bullshit. Nuff said

What do you like most about XWL?

World building for sure. I love the "Lore" I guess you could say. To be able to go back and look at certain angles and matches that people hold in high regard is super cool to me.



What do you like least about XWL?

I will answer that later on in greater detail. But from a broad spectrum? All my complaints come from the insides of matches.



When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?


Ive been exclusively a tag team wrestler the past few months and the booking staff has done a great job with what they have. The division isnt the biggest and 4 people for a match compared to two can be a task in of itself. But I have no complaints at all and enjoy being booked regularly.


From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it.

Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?


This one is pretty simple to me. Its obvious who earns opportunities. And who doesnt. Some may complain sometimes that Admins are in more titles matches then others. I'm not one of those people.  



The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

This place I feel has too many titles as is. Some may disagree. Some may not. Seeing as Ive been exclusively on Tag team things as of recent and Have really no desire for titles currently on the singles end. I feel as I am not the best judge of character for this kind of question. But i digress. I see the appeal. More opportunities. But i feel it just waters down the other titles.


We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

Being on both sides of this coin in my time here. I see both sides. But I handle my business the way I always have. If something comes up. Give them notice if you can. Handle your life and come back when your ready. David has allowed me back multiple times after ive dropped numerous feuds and "Balls". I thank him and everyone for that. Things happen. I think if theres interest and a person wants a character that is dormant and nobody knows whats up they should be given a chance for said character. Not a "Lets not say anything so it looks like we have more people here on the roster page then we actually do" Kinda thing.



In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed. If one member put in the effort and it was not returned, then that member will automatically receive the victory for the match in question. If neither opponent can provide evidence that the match was at the very least attempted to get done, then both parties will receive a loss. This was a difficult decision to make on our part, but it was one we as a team feel is a necessary reaction to multiple (both public and private) disputes and dilemmas involving communication and matches. Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

If one team tries and the others do not. or other singles competitor? that seems self explanatory.

The predictions for actual events mean nothing to me because I never watch WWE anymore. Thats not to say you should scrap it because its a neat idea and I'm sure some would enjoy it. I just dont enjoy WWE in the slightest (NXT doesnt count) So i dont do that.



The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted. This self-imposed rule is when prior to the match, opponents make an agreement not to utilize a finishing maneuver during either of the aforementioned circumstances (A and B). What are your initial thoughts on this topic? Do you think it should be made into a standard rule for all members to follow at all times? Should that rule be exclusively regulated to title matches? Would you prefer to keep things as they are with the "Gentleman's Rule?" Feel free to make a case for the permitting/restriction of both A and B, neither A nor B, or even if you're partial to having a rule put in place for A, but not B (or vice versa). We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.


THIS IS WHERE I AM VERY ADAMANT about my feelings. I feel it is absolute bullshit that we have this "Gentlemen code" thing floating around here that if you have no reversals you cant be finished. I get the idea and was for it UNTIL. I was in a match and the person or persons ( I will not disclose who or whom did this. proof is there) proceeded to burn there reversals dry the entire match because they knew they couldnt be hit and finished. But in the process the person who didnt burn all theres is susceptible to be hit because they still have to block? Thats not right. It should be looked into. This is about fun and enjoyment. But that shit is cut throat (Pun not intended. I'm not funny) If thats how people wanna go. We can do that. But id rather a solution be found.



Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?


presentation is second to none. Kudos to everyone on graphics cards etc. Thats what drew me here. I like shiny things. I'm essentially a cat. I liked the Superstar of the week thing. Its like employee of the month only better.




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

Nothing really except certain gameplay styles and I just wish people spoke more on mics. Thats where I got some of my closest bonds with people who are in my life not only because of Wrestling but actually my personal life too. People like Stunner Strum Tyler and Lazy. But i get some people dont like hearing there own voices. AMEN BROTHER. Pretty sure I sound like an angry baboon.

But I miss that. thats nothing against this place as a whole I just miss the camaraderie i had with people. Discord is fine. But what can ya do?

Off of sinisters reply. My favorite times in leagues was when I had a group of ppl who had mics. We would play the matches and talk and bond, but also want to play other games or just for fun matches even if the game wasn’t the best, it was still an outlet to talk about wrestling, leagues, and just whatever. I miss that. I saw you mention certain ppl who are comfortable being on the mic. Maybe we should make a new forum or whatever on discord for ppl who want to just go on live and chat and play whatever in parties and talk about XWL. It’d be really cool if this could eventually evolve to like an XWL like podcast or whatever where ppl discuss XWL Zoe whatever and record it but that’s a push. All I’m saying, is that if there are ppl cool with talking in parties and doing the whole league community thing that way, maybe we should all get together so we all know who’s down and who isn’t

The Survey


What do you like most about XWL?

The thing I like most about XWL is that the community does not put down the ideas of other members, but instead gives constructive criticism and words of advice on a direction a character should go in. Another thing I like about XWL is the inclusion of every member on a weekly basis.




What do you like least about XWL?

The thing I like least about XWL is nobody in discord can detect my sarcasm and whenever somebody spams a strike after being countered.

Another thing I dislike about XWL is that while I admire and applaud the members that put the time and effort to make their promos the best they possibly can, it is possible to have a great promo without typing out The Great Wall of Text, and I feel that when promos are of such length, it becomes difficult to maintain focus all the way through, and are often times skimmed through. Sometimes short and sweet is better than long and rambly. Quality > Quantity




When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

Yes I believe that there is enough variety when it comes to booking. I’m not facing the same people every week and I have been given/earned three separate chances at a Title Match/#1 Contender Spot.




From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it. One example is Alexa Bliss versus Mandy Rose for The North American Championship. The division absolutely can handle two titles, but unfortunately the first two champions of this title did nothing for the long term success of it, so we felt it needed an established rivalry to peak interest. Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

For the same reason I stated above, I believe title matches have been handled fairly since I have returned.




The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

Keep the Television Title as it is, or turn it into a gimmick match title like TNA did the King of the Mountain Title. Hardcore Title that can only be defended in Extreme Rules Matches.




We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed. With that said, there are two routes that we could take. This is where you as the members of XWL have a voice to let us know how you would like this league to run because after all, we are a community more than anything else. Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

I would say do not be as strict about activity, as sometimes emergencies can happen and screw up an entire week’s plan. However I feel that new measures can be created and enforced, such as implementing a rule that states a member that fails to participate for x amount of weeks in a row cannot contend for a title for x amount of months. This will drive incentive to be active for as long as people care about titles.




In light of recent events involving  a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed. If one member put in the effort and it was not returned, then that member will automatically receive the victory for the match in question. If neither opponent can provide evidence that the match was at the very least attempted to get done, then both parties will receive a loss. This was a difficult decision to make on our part, but it was one we as a team feel is a necessary reaction to multiple (both public and private) disputes and dilemmas involving communication and matches. Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

Next Question (sure it’s fair)




We have always tried to bring our members together as a community where you can post promos, do matches, and other things. Lately, other things haven’t been working out for us. PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

While I understand the concern with people not voting for PPV Awards, the PPV Prediction Thread is really not that big of a concern tbh. To me, make the PPV awards mean something in the long run. Maybe if a superstar wins 2 or 3 in a row they receive a title match of their choosing. Cuz right now there isn’t a lot riding on the votes + not everybody reads every single segment/match.




The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted. This self-imposed rule is when prior to the match, opponents make an agreement not to utilize a finishing maneuver during either of the aforementioned circumstances (A and B).

We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

No matter how many times it is explained to me, I will still never understand the Major Reversal counter rule. I’ve been told the person turns Yellow, but that’s not something I’m looking for in a match. I agree that you should try and avoid these but I don’t have any issue with them being done to me. Either be smart with your reversals or don’t put yourself into that situation is my view on it. We shouldn’t be coddling people cuz they used 4 reversals in a row but got countered as well.




Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

Some form of XWL Trivia would be pretty fun.




If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

I’d make me commish/world champ/tag champ/etc/etc.

I’d also maybe have some scheduled vacation time for shows every once and a while. 52 weeks in a row gets tiring and boring and makes it easier for people to burn out (I burned out after 3 months when I returned last year).

If I earn the right to be the #1 Contender as say Chris Jericho in my case, but I grow tired of promos or somebody else opens up that I would like to be, I shouldn’t lose all my hard work and effort I put in as Jericho because a guy I feel ill have more fun with and produce better work with became available. Having me start from scratch is a real momentum killer and kills any incentive I have to work my way back up.

The Survey


What do you like most about XWL?

How well it is all put together, from the website, to the cards, right down to the graphics and the posters that are made for the show - there is a lot of time and effort put into this place and that is why it makes it stand out from anywhere else that does this same sort of thing.

What do you like least about XWL?

There is not a whole lot, but sometimes people get a vice like grip on titles and it just kills it. There is skill level as well when it comes to this game, we all know that. I would hope that there would be more chances for new people to get title shots. Like the world title - should only be for the best, defended when it is needed, but other titles - they could be defended more.

When it comes to booking, what is your overall assessment of how you've been booked? Is there enough variety? Could there be more? Do you want all of your characters booked every week? Or do you want them sporadically booked? And most of all do you believe we're presenting your characters as best as possible, or could we do better? If so, how?

Never had a problem with the booking. Sometimes when I really want a match I am not on the card and other times when my week is tight I am lol. Maybe a booking thread, on here or on discord to help with matters.

From previous feedback we've received from you the members we've tried to spread opportunity wide and far among as many members as possible when possible. We've especially tried to incorporate number one contenders matches and matches of that nature rather than handpicking the names. At the same time we've also tried to recognize when moments call for us to make those executive decisions when it comes to stripping a Champion who falls below the standard, or even forgoing a contenders match and approving a long term rivalry over a title that desperately needed a jolt to bring excitement to it.

Do you agree with our recent handling of opportunities, and knowing when and how to execute them or could we do better? If so what you suggest we could do to improve upon it in the future?

Not everyone is going to be champion - I think we all know that, but we all join here to write, to have matches and hopefully hold gold. I have said before - opportunities are handed out very fairly, but there are some champions and members that are god like with there characters and going against them, your just going to get killed. More chances for more people - as in three ways and such would be a good idea.

The World Television Championship has been one disaster reign after the other, from champions/contenders not promoting it enough to the matches somehow almost not getting done. The admins are at the point of deciding that something needs to be done. Effective immediately the title has been vacated. So we currently have two options on the table, ditch it and the third male singles title concept entirely...or get rid of it in place of another title. What would you like to see us do?

Keep the TV title. Now you cannot do something like the 24/7 title as great as that would, but you could make it a weekly title defended every week against multiple people who are not going to get to that world title.

We understand that every member has a personal life that takes priority over XWL. This league is meant to be a hobby after all, not a job, but in order to continue to function and prosper it does require some minimal commitment. The issue presently at hand is that of activity, or lack thereof. Over the last few months, we've become lenient in this regard due to the internal struggles of the Admin Team and with this more compact team in place, we plan to ensure that activity will be more closely monitored and warnings will be distributed as needed.

Would you prefer the present activity rules to be closely monitored and enforced as they should have been? Or would you prefer to have more leniency regarding those activity rules, and newer policies to accommodate less active members?

I am a less active member, but when I got a match on the card, there is no one here that can say that I don’t try and get it done. Time zones and such are a pain, we have members from all around the world here with different connection types and speeds. Some people are really active and good for them, others are not - but should not be punished if effort is made.

In light of recent events involving a lack of communication between members who are booked against one another, notably those in high profile matches (number one contenders, tournaments, title matches), members will now be encouraged/required (whichever word you guys wanna use) to provide quoted evidence that they attempted to make contact with their opponent in the event that the match is not completed.

Do you think this is a fair request? Is it too much? How would you handle the situation differently?

This is a fair thing to ask

We have always tried to bring our members together as a community where you can post promos, do matches, and other things. Lately, other things haven’t been working out for us. PPV awards for Downpour were dreadful and when we tried to bring back Predictions for real life events, while the turnout was better than the awards, it was still not enough. What’s up? Are you guys not interested in these things? Do we not give you enough time? Do you just not care? Be honest because if people don’t care then we can put our efforts to other ideas and jobs instead.

I liked the predictions games and such, but other sites have a section just for talking about things - we have discord and that kind of kills it, but like - a counting game, a guessing game, a trivia game, these are all things to get people on the site

The admin team has been in discussion recently about a potential policy being put into place regarding the execution of finishers while your opponent is either A) unable to defend him/herself due to a major reversal, or B) unable to defend him/herself due to a lack of reversals at the time. Some of you may be familiar with this issue by usage of the "Gentleman's Rule" that several of the members have adopted.

We'd love to hear your opinions on the matter as we advance towards making this decision in an effort to positively effect our regular gameplay.

This Gentleman's Rule should remain within the hands of the members. This is a game after all, with characters having overalls and reversals and perks. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen a finisher reversed and then get smacked with one and not being able to do anything about it because you have no reversals of your own. It is a good idea, but these are legit matches that we are trying to win - above all else we all want our characters to win matches and we all play how we play, forcing this rule would be a mistake.

Are there any features that you think the XWL shows/site could have to improve the overall experience or presentation?

More polls would be a good idea, other than that the page looks amazing, the graphics are high level as well.

If you could change one thing about XWL, what would it be, and why?

Make the TV title weekly and give more people a chance at titles.

We have some new admins one of which was on vacation last week and we plan to discuss everything brought up now that everyone’s around and we’ll do an official admin reply once we have. One immediate thing is we have tried to make cards more “xtreme” since the first time it was brought up and we plan to continue to prioritize that

Greetings loved ones~

The admin house has taken a few unexpected hits since this survey was initially posted, but rest assured we have not forgotten about it and are still in discussion about the necessary alterations that will accurately reflect all of your honest responses. To start, in response to the member consensus of the first 2 questions: What do you like most/least about XWL? The admins have reached the decision to implement the following changes:

Beginning at XWL: Warzone, admins will now be conducting a pay-per-view review for each of our monthly Special Events. To accommodate this, Warzone will now be a 2 week event instead of the previously planned 1 week. Being as the weekly stories are regulated to the Anarchy shows and are lacking from our Special Events, we have agreed on this alternative in an attempt to create a more feedback-oriented environment in which nobody’s work goes unnoticed. In addition, following each and every Special Event, an Anarchy Town Hall will take place. This new outlet is our version of a character forum for you and your peers to voice your opinions to the staff and roster, whether they be gripes, praises, or ambitions, all through the voice of your chosen characters. Everyone is encouraged, but not mandated to participate.

Please stay tuned in to this thread in the coming weeks as we'll continue to provide updates while we chip away at these responses in our ongoing attempt to reach the most beneficial and enjoyable solution.
