The streak...is over. At 21-1, aptly enough.



After bringing in the best Super Heavyweight fighters in the world, only for Sigauskas to hold them against the cage for five rounds, I finally put him against someone 140 pounds heavier so he couldn't do that.

Of course, now I need to get the belt off Novak, since he'll be just as dull.

If you introduce a new title, how do you find the first champ? Do you always run a tournament, or do you just put #1 ranked against #2 ranked?

I had Rennaya Rives go undefeated for 5 years. No one could take that title from her.

If possible, I just do the no1 vs no2 if they are established enough. You can shape it into a reality show to compensate for the lack of pop. I always do that for the FW division, which ends up being Ziskie vs that long-haired Japanese dude. That way you get a stacked tournament where the winner gets a huge momentum boost and gets the first title shot. It's way cooler than random tournaments using nobodies where the only thing you can do is award them 100K or something, as a title shot is nowhere near. The reason I wouldn't suggest a tournament is because you want to establish the division ASAP to start boosting the title, and a tournament (unless it's a one-day tourney) will drag it out long.

Rives also was a top3 female star in my recent save, but she did get beat sometimes. At the moment, there's no one really undefeated in my gameworld. It's all xx-1.

I've experimented with this in my ALPHA-1 game (currently in 2023). If there's established fighters in the division but no clear #1 and #2 I'll usually mix the top ranked poached fighters in with homegrown ones moving to the weight class and do an 8 man grand prix over a year or so.

If it's an entirely unestablished division (I opened up women's flyweight, and populated the world with a lot of regens) I have two one night tournaments on television to determine the two title contenders. In the meantime I'll book a bunch of other flyweight fights to get someone to at least two wins in the meantime, who can challenge for the belt afterwards.

Populating the world with tons of regens is really fun and keeps the divisions very fresh but I have at least a minute's full loading between days now, sometimes a lot more if there's at lot of AI shows that day. There's only a handful of pre-gens left, and the only one of consequence is Ukiyo, who is easily the greatest of all time in my game with an almost decade long title reign and something like 15 successful defenses. I think his record in-game is something like 35-5 (two losses to da Silva Ramos in a tetralogy he won 3-2, loss to the light heavyweight champion, and two losses to the middleweight who took his belt). He lost his title but he still beats everyone who's not the champion. Legend.

I own my own broadcaster, but I'm considering opening another one, but an (enormous in all regions) internet based to broadcast shows filled with my lesser/developing/unranked talent. Not sure though, because I might just make a larger regular broadcaster and I'm not sure how running shows with unknown/untalented fighters will effect my popularity.
How hard is it to find talent for a weight split like that? Because I think I'd like to do it. Does the search automatically find you workers that fit or are those just default, and you've got to research workers a bit more to make sure they'll fit your weight class?

Like I said in the small questions thread: Because he doesn't want to fight him. You have to get him more over.

I've just started a save with ONE FC, which is a little out of my normal comfort zone, but I'm really looking forward to it... Gone on a hiring spree to bolster the roster (as I always like to book at least 4 shows in advance).

Iím 3 years into a default GAMMA save and itís been a ride. Iíve raided ALPHA-1 of basically any notable talent. By the end of 2005 I will run GAMMA 100. Foster retired after he lost a nuclear hype match with Gladstone Lopes. Rav Kapur has cemented himself as the best heavyweight with the belt. Affonso Villar is injured for the year but he holds the light heavyweight belt. Mike Watson lost it to Marlon John but worked his way back to the interim bout defeating Matthew Dean. Oh, Matthew Dean has been dominant in the middleweight division only losing to Darling which he immediately won back. Brubacker has shocked the world and held on the welterweight belt beating Rugerio, and is set to face da Guia. Lermontov was a dominant lightweight champion until he got crushed by OíBreen. Obreen isnít a respected champion yet for some reason but will be defending against Sukarno. And Lamont Banner has been tearing up featherweight, and is going to defend against Jokichi. Kel Ryan was dominant as a super heavyweight until Renato to put an end to that. On my phone but will post more in depth history when I get to my computer

Just started a new save, as my own company. Starting from scratch as low-level regional. This is gonna be hard... GAMMA and Alpha-1 are gonna come for all my talent after a few shows.

I basically make my titles called "Heavyweight King of the Indies" and when they stop poaching me I retire the titles and create my official ones.

I'm currently in 2022 of my XCC run with an added Women's flyweight and a Welterweight division.

Ollie Rockmetteller was my breakout star, completely owning the Bantamweight division and making 27 straight title defenses from 2002 to 2016. He lost two straight to Martin Backlund (who is in his second reign with 10 total defenses) and then retired. A great fighter and the first inductee to the XCC Hall of Fame and he even made the MMA Hall of Fame.

My big regret is that I didn't capitalize on my second biggest star, Lightweight Shusui Ikoma, and didn't run enough shows in Japan. The dude was a prennial champion making over 15 total defenses over 4 reigns including his final reign which spanned 5 years and 12 defenses and always avenged his losses. He's dropped his last 4 matches though and I think it's time for him to retire.

My Welterweight division is definitely weak and we just had our first champion to make a single title defense and he barely scratched it out.

I'm having fun with the regens and we restarted our reality show, Next XCC Titan. My big problem is that it takes like 5 minutes to sim in between shows.
