Welcome to Lords of Pain Wrestling,
I am your host, the LPW Sign Up Thread. I'm here to get you started with the key facts about what you need to know and do to join the LPW eFed.
Firstly, you'll need to reply to me with your sign up information. You'll find this at the bottom of my first post. In order to correctly sign up, you'll need to answer every question with the correct coding. If you quote this post, then delete everything other than the sign up information at the bottom, this should make it easy. This sign up thread is much simpler to what current members of the roster are asked to do. This is to give you as many options as possible to explore your character, and give you a lot of wriggle room as you're finding your feet.
Once you've done this, the next thing you'll need to do is start participating. The best way is to jump into the trash talking threads and start talking it up with the other characters. Introduce us to your character, and find your feet with the others here.
Eventually, if you keep participating, you'll be contacted by Morpheus, Al or Eddie B to sign you up for Insanity or Pyromania. These are the two brands of LPW, and where you get signed to is where you will primarily compete. This isn't a sign that you should stop participating though. The more participation you engage in, the better chances you'll have of getting booked to a card. If you don't get signed, keep participating, vote on a card, or comment in the OOC thread. The more you can do to show you're keen to participate, the better.
When you do get booked on a card, this is where the magic of competition happens. You'll be required to cut a promo (or a role play as other eFeds may call it), presenting a compelling arguement as to why you should win. It's quite difficult for me, a sign up thread, to explain. The best way to get a handle on this is to go back into the archives and read what other people have written. The more you read, the better understand you'll have of what we do. I mentioned voting before, and I'll cover it again. Voting happens as the second part of our contest, and helps determine the winner. Everyone who is involved in LPW may vote, whether they've been here for 10 years or 10 seconds.
Matches are determined on a combination of a voting and promo score. Votes are counted as 0.1 points for each vote. Your promo will be rated on a scale of 5 points by a team of raters. Add these two totals together, and you'll get your score. If you get a better score than your opponent, you win. So if you get an average promo score of 4.0 (APS), and 15 votes, your score will look like this
NEW PERSON (4.0 APS + 1.5 Vote = 5.5 Total)
That's pretty much all you need to know to sign up. So you don't accidentally delete the sign up coding, I'll add some stars. Delete above the stars, and the "[/quote]" code at the end, and you'll be good to go. Good luck, and welcome to LPW.
