The WWE 2K series has been a staple in the world of sports video games for decades. With every new release, fans eagerly anticipate the new features and improvements that will be included. With the upcoming release of WWE 2K23, there are a few features that I’d like to see included.
Ignore Ref on Rope Break Submissions/Corner Strikes (5 Count to DQ)
One of the most frustrating aspects of WWE 2K games is the rope break submissions and corner strikes. If an opponent is close enough to the ropes or in the corner, it can be nearly impossible to keep them down for the count. While technically a valid strategy in real-life wrestling, this can be incredibly frustrating in the game. One solution would be to allow players to ignore the referee during rope breaks and corner strikes. This would give players more control and make the game more enjoyable.
I Quit Match
Another feature that fans have been requesting for years is the I Quit match. This match type is a staple in WWE history and would add a new level of excitement to the game. The I Quit match is typically a one-on-one match in which the only way to win is to force your opponent to say “I quit” into a microphone. Adding this match type to the game would be a great addition and allow players to recreate some of the most iconic moments in WWE history.
Special Ref Match
Special referee matches are another feature that fans have been requesting for years. In these matches, players can choose a superstar to act as the referee. The referee-superstar can then decide to help or hinder one of the competitors by quick counting or slow counting. Adding special referee matches to the game would add a new level of strategy and excitement to the game.
4 Man Tag Entrance for 8 Man Tag Match
Currently, the game only allows for four competitors to enter the ring for tag team matches. This means that if you’re playing an 8-man tag match, half of the competitors won’t get an entrance. This might seem like a minor issue, but entrances are a huge part of the WWE experience. Adding a 4-man tag entrance for 8-man tag matches would be a small but significant improvement.
Increased Superstar Limit in Matches
Most WWE matches feature anywhere between 2-6 competitors. However, there are some match types (such as Survivor Series elimination matches) that require 10 or more superstars. Unfortunately, the current game only allows for a maximum of six superstars in a match. Increasing the superstar limit to 10 would allow players to create more realistic and exciting matches.
Managers Start with Finishers
In the current game, managers don’t do much beyond accompanying their superstar to the ring. However, adding a new feature that allows managers to have finishers would add a new level of excitement to the game. Managers could interfere in matches by hitting their finishers on opponents or helping their superstar to hit their finisher.
Overall, these are just a few of the new features and improvements that I’d like to see included in WWE 2K23. With these additions, the game would be even stronger and more enjoyable for fans of both the WWE and the WWE 2K series.
