    Re: BACK IN BUSINESS XII PROMO DISCUSSION THREAD

    Grim was asking for some critique of his Humanity promo-
    You thought it could be longer- I think it was just to right size. I really liked the fact that it was a bit different than most, it really stood out especially with the match Humanity is in (my character is in the same match). It stood out because of two things, to me at least- you could have gone down a list of all your opponents, said something about each one, or even referenced them all but you didnt. You just spoke of the one that mattered Parr. And you kept it a bit mysterious - not revealing it was Humanity talking the whole time until towards the end. I mean I knew who it was because I knew that Humanity was your character, but still.


    As far the others , meh...


    Just kidding, as usual, as I know Tommy from another forum, he always has done good promos, so it was nice reading yet another one.

    I also know Graves from that same forum, and I think he is doing pretty good with his promos here too, but I think formatting them in the standards you guys have here would make them easier to read.

    Sin City Vultures- really liked it a lot, but my only nit picking - sme for a few more with multiple people talking, putting the characters name in front of the text (the characters talking) makes it a little easier to keep track of who is who- but really it's not that big of a deal. It just always bugged me when I was writing shows on my old forum way back- of course ours were a way different format than here.

    Starr- yet another person my Hanz is in a match with. You did list all your opens one by one but you did it very well- lol at Book of Jobbers. And the rest of the promo was vry well done and flowed pretty well

    The Olympians, forgive me for not knowing all the usernames that go along with the characters- your promos have always stood out to me my very short time here as they are, well just very creative and we'll written.

    The Mike Parr promo, very well written and pretty much gave me a quick history lesson on the character

    Wraith- eh I spelled his name wrong in my Hanz promo, oh well. The promo was good but could have been better tbh, least to me. You listed and talked about your opponents one by one, I just think Starr did a better job doing that

    And I have to go back and read the rest. Luckly I have time to kill, am away for work and just killing time at the hotel

    Edit- way too much to read in one sitting for te rest.

    I liked the Mac promo- never mind that it was not as long as most others- it was short and to the point pretty much. Not every promo has to be very long.

    Heartbreak Express- really liked the promo and really like how their manager/mouth piece controls everything. My only crique, would have liked to hear from her team too.

    Those are the only other two that I read- will read the rest and reread the rest later this weekend and try to say something about them

    Re: BACK IN BUSINESS XII PROMO DISCUSSION THREAD

    I was late submitting my promo - don't know if it will count - I had no laptop last night in my house and had to wait until I got into work this morning to finish the promo and code it. It was always going to be maybe two hours late but it ended up being 3 and a half hours late ... wtf is after happening to the coding on the site? I used to be fine copying and pasting as plain text and coding on site but when I tried to do it today it was eliminating line breaks and merging words together. It was hell trying to code it and separate it and in the end I just posted it. I don't know if I caught everything so ifyouseesomewordslikethis that's why! Just a heads up.

    Apologies for the lateness. Great turnout.
    LUCHA! LUCHA! LUCHA!

    I dunno, wouldn't both promos technically be DQ'd as they were posted outside the deadline? Just a serious question.

    Re: BACK IN BUSINESS XII PROMO DISCUSSION THREAD

    Theres always been a grace period, though, of about 10 minutes. I advocated allowing Galloways from a few weeks ago, and Im guessing since it was decided for that not to be allowed that we would have to follow precedence here butvwe'll talk about it

    15 minute coding grace period allows for promos to be posted up to 15 mins past deadline. Anything posted or edited afterwards is DQed.

    We're not that harsh and realistically, there's an extra half hour for any emergency at the last minute or whatever.

    I just want to say regardless of whether or not it gets counted that when people talk about Tigs potrntial...that promo is what theyre talking about. That promo felt genuine, heartfelt, andis the most realistic promos Ive read here in a long time. Tig is a phenomenal fucking writer and not to rag on his vices, but couldve and shouldve been a World Champ at least twice. Truth is, talentwise, he deserves a higher calibre opponent than me. I appreciate the fact that you brought it, Tig. I appreciate the fact that you brought the fire one last time. Thanks, buddy.

    Cheers for the kind words. I really enjoyed your promo, I think if both graded it's going to be really tight ... and I enjoyed a lot of others. Everyone brought it. If anyone - particularly the newer guys - are looking for a promo review, lemme know.
    LUCHA! LUCHA! LUCHA!
