It really boils down to experience with boxing, and that doesn't give the writers too much leeway.
Wrestling, you can write about more easily because the sport itself involves a slew of genres of strikes, grapples, and anything we've seen on TV.
I don't know. All I'm saying is that since boxing seems a little more one-dimensional, compared to another sport that involves alot more variants of attack, like wrestling, I don't know how we could write fiction on it without seeming a little repetitive.
Bah, what do I know. " title="Razz" />
I took boxing before just because my uncle owned a gym, but I still don't know that much about it.
[quote="luffy316":bvefqe2f]laced up my gloves for my own char in the league! few more in mind, but so goes the story of my life. and there's always room for amateur hour too, Iffy. might be fun to write a wrestler trying to pick up boxing
Time for me to slate cyber boxing and reveal why I never did this in the past.... Iffy is actually refering to a couple of things :
1. Repeatitiveness: In a wrestling match, you start off... whats your opponent going to do? she might charge out of the blocks and go for a clothesline, or walk up and try to grapple with you, or pretend to go for a grapple where as instead she'll try to knee you in the stomach.... There is an equal amount of counters for all of them eventualities.
Whereas in boxing you start off and its a pretty safe bet that your opponent is going to try and punch you as their first attack... Then after that they are going to try and punch you again... Sometimes they'll pretend to try and punch you, whereas in fact they will try to punch... Its so very bland and its the reason why I don't really cyber box (that and the fact that in wrestling I don't actually like strike manuevers... so its like a wrestling match where the wrestlers can only use the one move that I dislike.)... Infact, now that I've remembered why I don't cyber box, to hell with this boxing league!
lol jk, it is only going to be a side thing, I'll probably only play a couple of matches before the novalty wears off for me... Then again I might be surprised and find it more interesting then I thought and I figured that others would feel differently to boxing then I do
2. skill and tactics limitations: I can tell you that if a kawaii went up against a big power house character, most likely their only chance would be to use quickness and agility against the slower opponent.. use the ropes, get behind them, take them off their feet and try to keep them down on the mat and so on. It is very easy and interesting to have your character use tactics in a wrestling match this way (particularly when each character has their own style that they'd also adhere to), in a boxing match that is harder to convey because at the end of the day you are going to be trying to do the same thing (ie punch an opponent... rather then cleverly trip your opponent to get them on the mat, or run around behind them etc.).
If you are a cyber boxer with quite a bit of expreience, you might have built up some skill at it... but as most of us are cyber wrestlers, there probably won't be a multitude of skills and tactics used in the matches.
I'm not sure if there is much value in creating multiple characters for this boxing thing... In terms of boxing styles there won't be that much difference (at least in comparison to wrestling). I'd strongly suggest you just stick to one and if you have 2 or 3 matches and still want to make another character, then add one more
