What IS UCA? In 51 words or less:

It's an ongoing wrestling-based Epop competition, but you don't need to be interested in either to have "success" or fun here. Trash talk, start feuds, challenge people to matches and whatever else. We also have gimmick matches! If you want in, just say you're joining and vote when you can.

tl;dr version of this post

This post is pretty long, but the bare bones are: you sign up, XIII and Tom will book you in matches against other people based on what division you are in, how strong you are, and who you're feuding against. You can affect what matches you are in by challenging people to matches, forming your own tag-teams, and trash-talking other users. There's two shows a week - Ruin and Combat - and every 3 weeks there's a more important "pay-per-view", with the biggest PPV event being Epopmania in late February. We try and ensure everybody has a match at least once a week. For more information about the B8UCA, check the links in the next post.


What do I do?

The only thing you have to do to be a UCA competitor and keep your place as a competitor is vote on UCA cards every now and then. It's more fun for everybody the more people get involved, though, so you're also encouraged to cut promos, start storylines, form alliances and tag teams, and talk smack in the topics.

So there are no requirements at all?

If you don’t vote for a while - usually three or four weeks - you’ll probably purge from our roster, but other than that, you have nothing to worry about!

What's the schedule like? How long until this crashes and burns?

There are two "TV" shows a week - Ruin (posted on Monday or Tuesday nights) and COMBAT (Thursday or Friday mornings) - shows are named after when voting ENDS, rather than when it begins. In addition, we have a more important "PPV" show every three weeks, posted late Saturday nights. We generally stick to that schedule, and even when we don't, UCA has outright missed only a handful of shows in its eight-year history.

How often will I fight?

The idea is that everybody gets at least one match a week, and we rarely mess that up. The more successful and active users will tend to get more matches.

Who's in charge?

XIII and Tom with help from occasional guest-bookers. XIII is the GM of Ruin, Tom is the GM of Combat. We also have some admin help from a variety of volunteers. The project was initially founded by Icehawk and Jakyl, passed on to Tom Bombadil, then to Football and XIII as co-owners, XIII passed it to Solio, who passed it back to XIII, who then brought Tom back in as a co-admin.

What's the structure like?

Divisions dictate which singles title people are most likely to fight for - apart from the MELEE MAYHEM title, which is open to all.

There are three "divisions" for singles wrestlers - Heavyweight, Intermediate, and Slothweight. There's also a tag-team division, so feel free to partner up with a friend and have a crack at that. You can still compete for singles titles while being in a tag-team, too.

If you beat somebody in the division above, you can promote, though usually you will need to further prove your worth in that division to show it wasn't a fluke. It's a loose sorting - people change divisions frequently, especially since we try to keep them roughly balanced in numbers. Likewise, a string of poor performances puts you in danger of a "demotion" match which will see you move down a division.

How do I join?

Just say so, here or in the main UCA topic. We're always taking new people.

Oh my God, what a dominating win by Luster of a f***ING BEAR! A worthy adversary for sure. I'll really need to train hard to take on Luster at Pandemonium.

Tom this is what I posted last topic

Just to check on the card I believe we have this:
Melee Mayhem Title: CPU vs eaed vs Maniac

So the card could use some tightening up:
Tag Titles: Tom/Boko vs Sultan/David. However, this is up in the air thanks to Strife/Apollo
Undisputed Championship: With his win over Raven, I feel Stifled is probably the best contender for the championship.
LW Title: Luster won a title shot. Might as well force him to use it at the ppv.
JESTER: prof wants to purge. Perhaps we allow him to do so and put some LWs up in a match for the new jester.
Wigs could defend taybles.
gravy wants eddv for reasons


Also add WotR vs Apollo and Strife
