QUICK FAQ AND GUIDE ON SKILLS, FIGHTER CREATION, AND TACTICS


What are some help files or links i'll always need starting out on MMATycoon?


How exactly do skills work?!?

Every single skill and quality a fighter has (except stuff like name and hometown, etc) goes from ZERO (0) to ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY (150). The game does not usually give you a precise number. They are expressed to you in terms of describing words (from Useless to Elite) and there's a beginner mode to let you know which one that is. Is Superb better than Remarkable? Is Wonderful worse than Exceptional? Use the spoiler below. This can generally be enough for a manager to get an idea of their relative skill. VIPs get a tool which will add --,-,+,++ to the visible value. Say you see "Useless++". That means you're probably at an 8 or 9 and ready to "pop" to Abysmal.

I'm done reading this sounds dumb/awesome.

Wait! Listen! There is more you need to know. There are four types of skills.

I want to make a fighter like CB Dollaway!!!

Sounds great. Let me show you some example builds and go a bit more into detail about fighter creation. I will probably screenshot this later when I make my next fighter but it's fairly simple anyway.

Tactics!

In case you are like how I was my first week or so, you will want to learn as much about setting tactics (also called sliders) as you can. They are how you win or lose fights. Fighter skill plays a part of course but with tactics David vs Goliath fights can happen and melt your face with awesomeness.

If you have not read the TACTICS HELP FILE <----- then please do before even bothering to set them. If you don't feel like taking the time to read that file you better hope you're either a savant or have really good luck because a lot of losses are in your future. There is no joking at all in that. Read the tactics guide. Now.

It may sound crazy but a good way to develop slider skills is to switch to cellphone mode. Instead of a moveable slider which allows for too much variance IMO you can set a specific numerical value for each tactic. It takes longer but forces you to think more about each tactic and how it effects the other. 0.82 Punching is much better to see than something maybe 82% of the way leftward.

Spoiler


This is what you will see if you have your font zoomed out too far to capture all of the sliders. JK, but these are the 'sliders' will let you set EXACTLY AND PRECISELY what your fighter's EXACT gameplan is for each fight. Your opponents will be doing the same thing so it makes for some excitement and psychological warfare.

Thanks yal :D

I just added the tactics example guide and pushed common links toward the top so it's more of something you see as part of the guide rather than an afterthought.

Also, the entire guide has been polished slightly and added to. It is a constant work in progress

Lordweird, thank you very much for taking the time to explain these various aspects of fighter creation. I definitely misunderstood some of the physicals and their benefits and use for a fighter. Frank Shank looks like he has adamantium fists! Droppin' people like bad habits and in very quick time, like old school Mike Tyson. Very impressive. Did you begin Frank as an 18 year-old and train him up the entire time until he reached 19, or did you have one of those 3 fights while he was 18?

you should go to map. then there are plenty of options. one of them is move base.
btw that fighter will lose some morale on changing base.
