This page will introduce you to the rules that are in and outside the NCPW Ring. This includes the discord chat, and your in-ring video game performance. This will go over every rule in the book that NCPW has. It will start from ring performance to the chat. It may also answer many questions people have such as the banned ability that we have in the league. It will also show you a little bit on how we perform as a league, and we like to run our leagues. The rules will be split up into different sections that are divided like subcategories. You will know the start of the next category as the next roman numeral appears. This is to inform everyone in a way that everyone will know the rules to the league.
II. Banned Moves, Abilities And Realism
NCPW has a short list on the banned moves and abilities. The list will be very specific on if the move is banned as a regular strike or grapple, and maybe just in general. We like to keep our league in a general fair playing field, and to entertain others that are watching your match. The level 2 payback known as “Hacker” is banned from being used, and the payback is from the final 2K Originals Pack. In addition, The moves Superkick 5 and the Hart Stopper are banned from being used in the league. The spear is also banned as a regular move, You can still use it as a finisher or signature. We have banned those ability and moves for the fun and quality of the match, and for the length of the move. There is also no submissions allowed in NCPW, and the pinning of signature moves. When you are in a match you cannot spam or constantly repeat a move, and in addition you cannot stay outside the ring the whole match, or a time period waiting for reversals. You also need to keep your characters move-set realistic. You should not see a heavyweight or super heavyweight doing spring boards or flips, and having fast momentum for there size. You also will need to talk to the owner of a finisher to use it as a finisher. You will be able to use someones finisher as a signature and vise versa, but if you both want to have it as a signature or a finisher you will have to sort it out between the owner and you.
III. Resiliency and Break Ups
NCPW has banned resiliency in certain match types, and we have banned it regular one on one matches that have no title defenses, number one contender, or qualifying. We have banned it to keep the show moving an a regular pace. In addition, WWE 2K20 has a better kick out bar with a better chance of kicking out so resiliency is not much more needed. In a championship match, You are able to have 2 resiliency’s because it is a match that has a title on a line, and it is more needed for the challenger or defender since there is value on the line. In qualifying or number one contender matches, There is only one resiliency to be used, and it has been a much more recent rule that has been added to give people chances into reaching their gold or match type they are qualifying for. In Regular tag matches, they get only 1 break up per team. Tag Matches are always long so adding one break up is not needed, but however you are relying on someone, so you don’t want to lose over your other teammate. In Tag Team number one contender matches or title matches, you will receive 1 team break up and 1 resiliency per person.
IV. Match Endings (Ladder Match, Steel Cage, Split Screen)
NCPW has faced multiple split screens between competitors, and undefined rules on Ladder Matches and Steel Cage matches. When there is a ladder match happening, you must hit at least 1 finisher to climb the ladder and get the item hanging from the arena rafters. There has never been a rule on Steel Cage matches in NCPW, but people like to end this match type early by escaping, and or walking out the door, but you will need to at least hit 1 finisher to climb and or escape by door. There also has never been a rule on match split screens but depending on the situation, if both competitors split when the match is declaired as the “beginning or middle” , then there will be a rematch at that moment. If they split towards the “end” of the match then it will be considered a draw.
V. Other Unspecified In-Ring Rules
There are other NCPW rules that have not been listed under the other categorys, and these might be some of the most important or least important rules in NCPW. NCPW is all about fairness in the ring, and not always it can be like that, but you must give your competitor ring curtsy. That is when you let your competitor get in the ring without any attacks, and this rule is only in Normal One on One matches and normal tag matches. If you fail to give this rule, your opponent will get a free move that is not a signature and finisher. When there is no ring curtsy, you cannot hit your opponent immediately with a finisher or signature. You also cannot stall your moves such as waiting more than 2-5 seconds to hit a finisher or signature. In addition, You cannot throw your opponents into the ropes, and throw them into the air for a catching finisher. You may however use your catching finisher when they jumped, and or did a springboard on their own. When your opponent is grounded you may only hit 2 or less stomps before you have to do a strong strike or grapple. Roll-Ups are also allowed, but however they must be realistic so you cannot spam them. You are now allowed to pin off Rare Moments that don’t occur often. This includes devastating OMG moments that take a finisher, to top rope grapples that are not done much.
There are set overall requirements in NCPW. The basic overall for every regular superstar is a 85 Overall. A mid-card champion is allowed to have their overall at a 90 Overall since they earned it by holding a championship. A world champion is allowed to have their overall at a 95 overall since they are representing the league or their respective brand. In addition, you will not need to have any type of submission stat, so it is recommended that you put it at the lowest to up more stats.
VII. Promos and Party Chat
There has not been many problems with promos and party chats in NCPW. There should be no racism, discrimination, sexism, anti-social or vulgar behavior, cyber-bulling or slander in the party, and majority of the behaviors listed should be left out of your promos. In addition, you are playing and talking as a character there should be no personal things brought into the promos. This will include family members, death, diseases, and etc,. When it is show time or it is a PPV, then all conversations should be revolved around the show unless their is downtime at the time. This is not a dictatorship, but we ask that all people watch the matches and not talk about other topics just as respect for people who watch your match. There should absolutely be no talking during show intros, commentary, and promos. The talking during matches should be reactions and or commentary. We try not to be strict when it comes to party chat, but we just ask for respect out of everyone. There also will be given downtime during every show.
VIII. Appearance and Creative
You will receive 2 days off a month and 1 emergency day off. These days could be extended on what is going on around you such as illness, death, family events and such other. You should use your days wisely or not at all. Your appearances will also effect your creative booking on building you up or finding a competitor. You also can tell the Creative Team or the GM of the respective brand on what story-line you would like to do or aim for, and they must be reasonable.
IX. Theme Songs
You must use your theme for a considerate amount of time. A reasonable length would be about 1-3 Pay-Per-Views.
X. Discord Chat
NCPW has very basic rules to the discord chat, and some that have been very undefined. NCPW has gone threw some moments in the past with the chat. There should be no racism, discrimination, sexism, anti-social or vulgar behavior, cyber-bulling or slander in the chats. This will include PM’s as there should be no reason for a war to break out because we are all here for the same reason, and it is to have fun, have matches, meet people, and etc,. If the behavior above is violated it could lead to no booking to a indefinite suspension. If you leave the discord chat, then you can consider yourself fired until you hear back from creative team. You also need to post your stuff in the right chat such as themes into the right chat with characters name, and moves go where your moves go with your characters name on it.
XI. WWE 2K Game & DLC Releases
NCPW has held game and DLC releases differently. There has been sometimes where we will do a draft to moves, but this rule has further changed. There will not be a draft, and it will be available to the first person to claim it. You will not be able to claim moves before the games release date. We also do not switch over to the new game until everyone has it or 2 weeks after it’s initial release. In addition, You must upload your character to the community creations, so the people in the render division can do their work.
