SGWF Rules

Written below are our formal rules for the SWGF. While we will adhere to these rules as best we can, there will certainly be circumstances that are not covered by these rules. Additionally, these rules are subject to change as determined by Stone. The final say is by Stone in all matters.

Roster Rules

  1. Any VIP or Subscriber may have one wrestler for no pebble cost.
    1. Additional wrestlers may be purchased for a cost of 25,000 pebbles (our in channel currency – NOT TWITCH CHIPS).
    2. FAQ: Why a Sub: Typically a sub is required to help mitigate “drive-by” guests that will show up, create a wrestler, and then never EVER appear again. Exceptions can be made for folks that are in frequent contact by Stone or have been invited to create a wrestler by Stone.
  2. Player-owned wrestlers (POWs) will be kept on the roster for at least 6 months.
    1. Prolonged absences could result in your wrestler being removed in favour of other Player-Owned wrestlers being added to the roster.
    2. Breaking our chat rules (or just causing drama in general) will get your wrestlers removed from the roster. Let’s keep it fun, folks!
  3. Creating a wrestler is subject to Stone’s availability.
    1. If you can create your wrestler in WWE2k19 (PC version), please do so.
    2. If you do not have WWE 2k19 (PC version), we will arrange a time to create the wrestler together, or you can go ahead and check out the Create-a-Wrestler rules and send me your list of wrestler details.
    3. Stone has final approval of all wrestlers. Any POWs create to be super wrestlers (folks, we already give you max attributes), will either be modified or rejected from play.
  4. At any time, should a member violate our SGWF rules or the twitch rules (don’t be a dick: this is a game!), your wrestlers will be subject to removal. Yes, we’re reiterating rule 2.2.
  5. Tag Teams: Your CAW can form a tag team ONLY with another POW, never an unowned wrestler.
    1. Exceptions can sometimes be made, per Stone’s discretion.

Wrestler Rules

  1. POWs (Player-Owned Wrestlers) will have an overall rating of 100.
  2. Ned Flanders and Marge Simpson will always have a rating of 36 (lowest possible). These are kept low for POW debut matches.
  3. Venom (men and women) will always have a rating of 100 and a weight class of (men) Super Heavyweight (350 lbs) and (women) Heavyweight (275 lbs). These are kept high for POW boss matches.
  4. All Non-POW wrestlers will have a rating of 90 overall.

Power Rankings (World Championships)

TLDR: We calculate points on a rolling 30-day period. Excel takes care of it for us.

Match Winners: Winners of all matches will receive 5 points.

  • Championship: Winning a championship belt earns your wrestler extra points. Defending the title does not award any extra points.
    • World & Tag Team Titles: +5 points
    • Canadian Title: +3 points
    • Twitch Title: +2 points
  • Non-Title: If you are NOT a champion, but you defeat a champion in a non-title match, your wrestler receives extra points.
    • World & Tag Team Titles: +2.5 points
    • Canadian Title: +1.5 points
    • Twitch Title: +1 points
  • Boss Bonus: Defeating a boss will earn your wrestler an extra 1 point.
  • Multi-Person Matches: There is no bonus for defeating extra challengers.
  • Over-The-Top-Rope Matches: There is no bonus for defeating extra challengers.

Match Losers: Losing a match will award a wrestler 1 point (exception is below).
8-Person Battle Royal Matches: Being eliminated 1-4 will award a wrestler 1 point. Being eliminated 5-7 will award a wrestler 2 points.

Draws: Matches ending in a draw will see both wrestlers or teams earning 2.5 points.

Match Assignments

Typically matches are assigned on a random basis unless there is a specific story-line or contender match that needs resolving. In most cases, all POWs will appear on each show every week, however, for PPVs, there are chances there may not be room for all POWs as they may not be in contention for a championship.

Free-Per-Views (FPV): Once a month there will be a free-per-view (think Wrestlemania, Royal Rumble, etc) where all championship matches will be on the line. Some matches will be assigned to determine #1 contender positions throughout the month and may not necessarily be randomly assigned. Player-Owned Wrestlers (POW) will be favoured over NPC wrestlers.

Championship Matches: Each Championship title will be defended once a month against the #1 contender. There are no automatic rematches should the title change hands. After losing their title, a previous champion may not necessarily be the #1 contender.

Twitch Championship: The Twitch Championship title will be defended each week against the winner of the a battle royal (this consists of eight wrestlers chosen at random). There are no automatic rematches should the title change hands.

Canadian Championship: The Canadian Championship will be competed for once a month by the Champion and the most recent winner of The Gauntlet.

Canadian Championship Gauntlet: Each week (except for FPVs) a 4-way Elimination Match will be held to determine who will challenge the current Canadian Gauntlet Holder. The initial Gauntlet Holder will be wrestler coming in second during the inaugural Canadian Championship matches. After each FPV, the Gauntlet Holder will be whichever wrestler lost the Canadian Championship Match. If a wrestler loses the Gauntlet on they will be granted a spot in the next Gauntlet Qualifying Match.

Non-Title Matches: POWs that are champions may wrestle on a weekly basis in non-title matches. These matches will allow the POW to continue to accrue power ranking points. This is up to the owner of the POW. If no firm decision is reached by the owner, Stone will make the decision for them.

Purchasing Title Matches: Anyone in the chat room may purchase a title shot for 50,000 pebbles (use the command !titleshot in the chat). The user may select any wrestler on the roster to award the title shot to; this could even be a wrestler not owned by the user and it also does not need to be a POW.

A purchased title match does NOT guarantee a one on one shot against the champion. In fact, if there is a scheduled match already in the works, the match will be updated to include the new wrestler. So if there was already a triple threat for the championship it would be updated to become a fatal four-way. In some scenarios the title shot may be awarded immediately or may need to be deferred to the next show. Scheduling decisions are up to Stone’s sole discretion.

Money in the Bank: MITB will be held only once a year. If the MITB briefcase is held by a POW and the owner has not shown up, the POW will be treated as a non-POW in terms of random cashing in. Non-POW’s will have a 10% chance to cash in their MITB shot each week: Stone will manually roll this each week, but keep the results hidden until match day.

Match Rules

  1. Earning Pebbles: VIPs and Subs will earn pebbles if their wrestlers win matches. Quantities are determined at match time by Stone. Typical pebble rewards are:
    1. Singles / Tag Teams: 500 pebbles to the winner.
    2. Multi-Person Matches: 500 pebbles to the winner.
    3. Battle Royal (3, 4, 5… opponents): first person eliminated gets 100 pebbles, 2nd gets 200, 3rd gets 300, and so on. Winner receives 800 points.
    4. Championship and other special matches: pebble rewards are subject to Stone’s determination. Typically for these special matches, rewards are doubled.
  2. Twitch Championship: matches will have a maximum duration of 10 minutes. If there is no winner after the 10 minutes elapsed time, the match ends in a draw and the champion retains the title.
