Is Fire Promoter a separate game, or is this a mode within Fire Pro?
I'm looking to get started with Fire Pro via Steam - but this promotor version you're describing sounds infinitely more interesting than the regular game itself!
Any and all info appreciated!
It's a separate DLC purchase and exists as it's own mode within the game. I haven't delved into it as much as I would have liked, but I'm pretty sure you'll have access to all of the Workshop content in the mode too.
Dragons, Emus, and Wolves are all hearing impaired. Sounds about right.
I'm completely new to Fire Pro Wrestling Fire Promoter, having picked up the original Fire Pro Wrestling World game I used to just have matches in offline mode and see what outcomes I could get LoL! I remember thinking ''this would be great if I could actually run a proper promotion and book venues and go against other federations'' and here we are. I don't actually know if this thread is still active but I did find it via google and took the time to sign up to the proboards thing so I could share my experience on it.
Right, so I saw something on YouTube where it says you can manipulate the roster at the beginning and I decided It would make it too easy to do that if I could just bring anyone in right away. I wanted to grind out the first year so that it felt like a genuine struggle at first. The game gives me 6 guys on my roster and my federation is EMPIRE WRESTLING FED. I have 2 Stables: 1 Babyface which is 'Noble' and 1 Heel called 'the Hood'
Because I skipped ahead on the YT video I watched, I sort of knew what to expect early on. I wanted to get in a few things first. It doesn't look like any of the wrestlers have any previous history? So I guess I could build that myself, and they don't have titles either but the titles in the fed are currently vacant? I tried to book a tournament but it said I need more experience at booking standard events first, okay so I run with the 6 guys I have, 3 faces and 3 heels. I did a quick scan and read through of my roster and here it is: Babyfaces 1) 'Hollywood Hunk' Jack Howard - 29yo USA, 6'5 260lbs (Babyface) / Salary: $1,200
Popularity: USA:B Japan:C Latin America:C Europe:C
2) 'The Divine' Matt Robinson - 26yo USA, 6'3 246lbs (Babyface) / Salary: $1000
Popularity: USA:B Japan:D Latin America:D Europe:D
3) 'Antigravity Kid' David Houston - 28yo USA, 5'10 233lbs (Babyface) / Salary: $850
Popularity: USA:C Japan:D Latin America:D Europe:D
Heels 4) 'Hell Knight' Mickey Williams - 33yo USA, 6'6 275lbs (Heel) / Salary: $850 Popularity: USA:B Japan:D Latin America:D Europe:D
5) 'Brilliant Devil' Thomas Walker - 41yo USA, 6'5 286lbs (Heel) / Salary: $650
Popularity: USA:D Japan:D Latin America:D Europe:D
6) 'The Convict' Bill Bullock - 22yo USA, 6'0 238lbs (Heel) / Salary: $650 Popularity USA:D Japan:D Latin America:D Europe:D
So the first thing I thought of here, making my first match card in January? I didn't want to book someone against someone else where they were outmatched too much? For example. Antigravity Kid is 5'10 and 233lbs but Brilliant Devil is 6'5 and 286lbs, it's not at a point where he is completely outmatched physically but it just made sense for me to go with something a little more even and balanced. My first card: (L) Convict Bill Bullock VS Antigravity Kid David Houston (W) Flying Rollup Pin by Antigravity Kid > Match Rating: 92% 12m 19s
(L) Divine Matt Robinson VS Brilliant Devil Thomas Walker (W) The Devil drew blood from Matt Robinson using a fork in his head, Thomas Walker wins despite a heroic fight back from Matt Robinson, Euro Uppercut > back hook leg pinfall > Match Rating: 85% 12m 58s
(L) Hollywood Hunk Jack Howard VS Hell Knight Mickey Williams (W) Hell Knight Mickey Williams drew blood from Jack Howard using a fork, Hell Knight Mickey Williams wins with a KO on Jack Howard Match Rating: 66% 7m 39s
So in review: Attendance: 1479
AVG Card Rating: 81%
hmm, I was disappointed with the end there only 66% I felt like the CPU jipped me because the first 2 matches were pretty solid? I also paid for advertising which is a big no-no this early but wanted to experiment with how it influences the attendances.
I'm now into February! I decided on the back of that disappointing Main Event I would need to shake things up a bit, maybe kick the boys into touch by improving the GYM? Gym Upgrade: $30,000, I was advised another good way to bring in extra revenue is to produce merch so I decided to go with a snack product. Merchandise: Branded Snacks $1000.
A Promotion is only as good as it's roster right? I decided to Sign a new Wrestler: I had to pay $1000 + $7,500 sign on fee > but we landed 'Bomb Squad' Alan Brown - 39yo USA, 6'0 224lbs (no affiliation) / Salary: $1,200
Popularity: USA:A Japan:B Latin America:B Europe:B I forgot to take off the Advertising: Poster, I should of done this before but left it on by accident. :-/ my finances took a big hit this month. Never the less we're able to put on a decent card!

I wasn't disappointed by the event this time, or at least the ending? 78% isn't terrible but I have Hollywood Hunk who is a class B popularity in the ME for the title and It only brought me a 78%? Another thing here was I did a rage in the cage frightful february (sort of like it was an exclusive) so all of them were cage matches (rookie mistake) by me. I learned it can injure your wrestlers quicker so won't be doing another until I have a bigger roster.
