With that reminder out of the way, please be advised that this is an announcement thread concerning the next LAW PPV and a couple other things.
Hold up, I'm new. What is a PPV and how does it work?
For the LAW-specific PPV info/attitude - you can think of these ppv events to be official site events where you can begin or end major stories/matches for your character's character development arc. This can be the climax or a feud, title challenge, or event a significant promo that happens in Korakuen Hall where LAW PPV's take place, or even elsewhere if the story you're going for demands it. What this does on some level is allow every character the opportunity to reference, relate to, or even insert themselves into events that affect LAW as a promotion. For example, maybe your character wants to become the hardcore champ and the hardcore champ was injured in the same ppv where they were going to become number one contender. Or maybe your character and another character are friends and wished each other luck in their respective ppv matches, and they meet up later in a thread right after the ppv to discuss their two different perspectives on the same event they both partook in. By having everyone acknowledge and relate to the events of the same ppv, LAW feels more like a whole organization rather than a series of isolated stories and matches. Or at least, I hope it does.
There's also the expectation that all champions able to defend their championships at the time do so during ppv events. And we'll be using this PPV and a couple of future ones to establish and set up new championships/champions.
Lastly, there is something of an expectation that if you do participate in an official PPV event, that you finish the match or segment you sign up for before attempting to join in on official events later. To be very highly specific: if you still have a ppv/official event match or thread (not a user-run event) that is one year or older and is still in progress, you will not be allowed to partake in future official events.
TLDR: ppv's are official events your characters can join in to highlight important parts of their stories and to make LAW feel more connected as a whole. Champions are expected to defend. And rp'ers are expected to finish their ppv threads.
- Cool so what/when is the next PPV, anyways?
- Sounds good. Is there any info specific to this PPV?
Lastly, this dichotomy helps pave a way for newer wrestlers to begin in the undercard and work their way up to the main card, adding to their stories and relatability to other rookie and veteran wrestlers who would likely be trying to do the same.
- Ok I got it. So how do I have my girl qualify for the undercard or main card?
For the main card, in addition to not having a ppv match or thread in progress from a year or later, your character must meet the requirements of being an Elgible Contender/Challenger. While it's not mandatory to post to that thread for your character to compete in ppv's and championship matches, it helps the community keep track of who can and can't challenge for titles in the future. It also adds credibility/helps establish those characters. In order to qualify a character for main card competition, please have them complete 3 matches.
- Understood. So how do I go about signing up? Are there any rules for that?
