Mecko's TEW Mod: Paradigm Shift

Recommended Posts

Hi there,I was thinking about how I've played this game in the past and I thought why not try to make a TEW current day mod where it actually feels like you have some choice in the direction that you can take your companies in.

No more of those saves where you are forced to book Becky Lynch as your Women's Champion because of her stupidly high popularity that is so far away from everyone else in your company that you can't really build anyone towards her. I want to try and eliminate the linearity of the saves you can play instead allowing you to have an element of choice in this ever growing wrestling world. Adding a somewhat even playing field and more accurate depictions of the wrestlers are what I believe will make the experience more enjoyable because you will feel like you can actually run with the people you want to run with instead of the ones that you are almost forced to use because of popularity or in ring ability. A particular gripe of mine is the inaccuracy of certain things which isn't a fault of the mod creators but I have noticed especially when it comes to the Women's divisions,there are a rare few that have decent psychology which can be a pain when booking matches.

The mod currently will be starting in October 2019 but if people enjoy the mod,there may be more updates to the save potentially in monthly increments or quarterly I'm not completely sure yet. I would appreciate suggestions on companies that you would like me to include as well as particular wrestlers. Currently I have Dragon Gate,WWE(including NXT and NXTUK), AEW, New Japan and Impact in my bubble of companies that I'd like to include.

I hope people are on board with this idea and would love to see your opinions.

I very much appreciate it.

November 2019 progress update

As you all know I began working on this mod about a month ago as of today, and I have to say there has been progress with the companies that are currently in the game which are listed below. If there is anyone on the forums who think I should be adding more companies to this list feel free to reply to this post. 


Speaking of progression, I can confirm that myself and few others who have been kind enough to chip in their opinions have completed the Women's Division for both Raw and Smackdown with their own individual pictures. Stats have been adjusted accordingly but the main point to get from this is that I want everyone to be usable so even wrestlers lower down the pecking order such as Dana Brooke are able to grow and potentially get to the peak some day. Championship pictures have been included also so that means if you crown a certain wrestler as a champion,there will be an image in the backlog to show they are the Champ.Raw_BG2.jpg


As for right now,we are currently running through the Men's Roster of WWE then after that we shall be moving to NXT to do the same. Personalities have been considered as well so that means that people such as Renee Young or CM Punk would have their own special background. Because CM Punk has not been confirmed to actually wrestle yet,he will only be available as a personality at this point in time.


Many thanks to @FDS , @Sheridan, @Hans and @Alex Costa to giving me insight on things that I am not so knowledgeable of. Without them,this mod would be much further back than it actually is.

Love that you kept it up Mecko and I would love a mod like this, would help me  as when i play i always want to try and take a smaller known wrestler whos look and style i like and try and build them up but find it almost impossible. I would say if its not to much add Lucha Underground in as well.

Paradigm Shift April 2020 Update

As you all know in October of last year I began the development of this Paradigm Shift mod alongside a few of the other people on the forums. I am still planning on developing the mod but development has slowed down due to everyone being busy with their real life issues,myself included. With time not producing the mod and working on it,we have been able to figure out a few things.

Firstly,with how early we had started developing the mod we hadn’t truly figured out when the starting date would be and as a result of this it had been a struggle to adjust stats and popularity as we hadn’t established a period in which the mod would begin. Figuring that out was a key focus because it would allow us to have a true idea of what the wrestling world would be like. We have come to the conclusion that it would make the most sense for the mod to begin in April 2020 after the events of Wrestlemania 36.

I know there will be a few questions about if certain people will still be under contract, we are taking into consideration the mass WWE releases so as a result of this, people like Rusev and Drake Maverick will not be under contract so if you are planning on doing an Impact,ROH or AEW save you would have the opportunity to snatch them up provided that New Japan don’t sweep in because that tended to happen quite a bit with TEW2016.

Another thing that I am going to announce is that I will be making a Discord server dedicated to the mod because whilst the Discord Group Chat that is set up is nice, I feel having a discord server would allow things to be more organized and we did set up a Google Spreadsheet too but it’s likely that this will be revamped. Do note that it hasn’t been set up yet but if you are interested in assisting development do let me know.

One last thing that I would like to say is that when the mod is created, I would like a few people to test the playability of it potentially on the forums because whilst some ideas may have worked into TEW2016, it may not work in 2020 which has it’s public beta released today. Any feedback would be appreciated especially when we begin to release monthly or bi monthly installments of the mod.

This last message is more a favour to the more graphically talented members on the forums is if there is a possibility somebody could help me design a logo for the Paradigm Shift mod because it would allow it to have some identity.

For now you may enjoy some of the Wrestlemania Graphics,thank you for reading I appreciate you tuning in for this long overdue update.
