Bluemouse brought up an idea like this during a chat one day. Kel had had some similar thoughts and after some back and forth, we helped to put together what we think will be a fun idea for Tension.
We're calling it Duos right now and it works like this:
Girls and guys get paired together in Tension. It's a team but it's not a tag team. It's more like a team of individuals. It makes it so that a girl and a guy can fight or rival with whoever they like and always have a m/f match up.
The two will be like placeholders for one another. If, for example, there is a tournament and a guy would be pit against another guy, then his duo would wrestle instead. She'd wrestle the guy and if she won, then the guy would advance and face the next opponent (if it's a girl)
If a girl has a title and a girl wants to challenge, then the challenger would fight the guy. If the guy won, then the girl of the duo would still retain the title.
Everything an individual accomplishes in a duo belongs to the individual. If a guy was put up in a championship match for his female duo and won, then left the duo, the female would still be champ.
It's almost impossible to really get anywhere in Tension because if a single guy or girl tries to move up in the ranks, then they will almost inevitably be waiting until the right female or male is around to be able to challenge or feud with. If a member has a female character they will be waiting until there's a male champ. If there is a female champ, then they will only get to fight males until they lose their title.
Having said all that, we feel like it will definitely bring a lot more drama to the table. A REAL chance for people to start REAL storylines in Tension and hopefully have a lot of fun with it. The idea is done with having two different members each controlling a member of the duo and not just pairing up your own characters. It could be lovers that duo. It could be friends, it could be rivals looking to gain something off their partner.
In Character, duo's would be something that would be put in place by management, something that would be enforced with the OOC idea of creating storyline romance, friendship, rivalry, hatred... etc between wrestlers.
Any thoughts? questions? comments? Does it sound intriguing? stupid? exciting? Please tell us if you think this might be a good idea to help spark some more interest in Tension! Thank you ^ ^
I like all of the idea actually " title="Smile" />
It can make things annoying if you have trouble with your duo partner but I suppose that's part of the point " title="Razz" />

But, It DOES sounds fun to have your char partnered with someone they won't like. THAT part sounds fun and interesting, I like that, all the forced character encounters. Tension lacks that.
The title rules however are stupid and only appeals to those who are afraid of punching something with a cock. But I guess that makes some of you happy.
It's not always easy to depend on someone OOC, I might not even like that person, they might not like me. I could hate the way the write. And they could take longer than me to post to a match when the are duoing for this person.
Further more, And this is more of a hypothetical scenario. What If all the Contenders are male and don't want to fight my char who is champion? Do I have to spend that year having my char's title run be made up of pitch-hitting?
And I'm aware this is all for fun but we're actually keeping char strength consistent for once. What if you're trying to win a tournament or a title but your duo happens to be a jobber. IC wise "Management" might have done that to pick on that dominant character so they gave them a jobber. But what if you're not a "Dom or jobber" char? What if they're a switch char? Couldn't they be held down by their jobber partner? That's not even counting the pressure thats going to come with...
"YOU BETTER WIN TO KEEP MY TITLE."
Fun concept, but title wise, I dislike it. (Big shocker right?)
Alright. I'll get my haters gonna hate gif on standby.
Edit: Long story short. Some people don't like to depend on others or have to be depended upon. You might say "Well that's your problem, Lobo." And it is. My single opinion won't change your plans anyway, but I'm being honest for myself and potentially others as well. We like being individualists.

Yes, that means not going at it randomly and being disappointed when you don't win.
But that's how title matches should be anyway. Everyone involved (with the duo system, all 4 people involved) should come to a unanimous decision about who will be the victor. That would solve that problem pretty easily. Of course, this is also implying that everyone involved would be willing to take the time to plan out the match. Or is even willing to have it planned out at all.
"Well I like to wing it and see where it goes."
"Well I wanna plan it out so no one gets upset about the outcome."
"Well then it's no fun if I know how it ends."
"Well then I can't work with you."
"Well rabble rabble rabble!"
You can't make everyone happy. But I think if you aren't even remotely open to the idea of either A:) planning the outcome of the title match for everyone's benefit, or B:) losing said title match and losing the title, then you shouldn't be involved in a title match in the first place.
Anyway, that's just how I feel. I know I don't want to have a match with someone who's unwilling to compromise... [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awzMuxs1bfc:3lt1v5bb]Just saying.[/url:3lt1v5bb]

It sounds like a rather good idea, my most used wrestlers are tension based so it'd be good to get more interest in that brand. Not sure about the whole thing with titles but otherwise it seems cool " title="Smile" />

As far as titles are concerned, should someone who doesn't want to have mvm or fvf matches not be allowed to vie for titles in Tension?
This is a way to sort of alleviate that in an ICly way.
The emphasis of this idea is more on the storylines that this will set up rather than having an alternative for tournament and title MvM matches... But I would say that not wanting to do Male v Male should be looked at in the same light as someone not wanting to do furry wrestling or a death match. Some matches on this board just isn't for some people and there shouldn't be a case that a player has to do one of these matches when they are not interested in it

Of course, this is also implying that everyone involved would be willing to take the time to plan out the match. Or is even willing to have it planned out at all.
As ThunderFox eluded to, all title matches and PPV/tournament matches should be arranged before hand so the problem that Lobo has mentioned should be identified way before the match actually occurs and dealt with... Swap around so that different duos are facing each other; come up with some kind of interference to get a jobber to win; make out that the challenger isn't interested in continuing the match after a while so walks out (throwing the match). If it is all discussed before hand you can actually turn a problem into an interesting match/storyline twist.
I want to point out that we would not be forcing the secondary duo partner into the match OOCly.. If the duo member isn't interested in the match or the outcome, then they don't have to compete.
[quote="Lobo":719nr29y]Further more, And this is more of a hypothetical scenario. What If all the Contenders are male and don't want to fight my char who is champion? Do I have to spend that year having my char's title run be made up of pitch-hitting?
If your champion was male and you were happy to do male v male... But the contender had a male character in the #1 contender spot and they didn't want to do male v male. In *most* cases my suggestion would be that the contender is the one that has to swap with their duo... But to be honest, this situation is kinda rare... and with moderation we wouldn't have a situation where an entire title reign was defenses by your duos (unless that is what you wanted to do as part of a storyline pitch)
This is not a rule that all title matches HAS to be male v female... this is an optional "ICly mandatory" plot device to give you an opt out of some undesirable male v male matches (or undesirable female v female matches... ... what? someone on here might not like it... " title="cookie" /> )
