"It was YOUR time to shine, and you delivered. These are the answers to all (well most) of your questions for WWE '12's Universe Mode!

If our @WWEgames Twitter page were a phone yesterday, it would have been ringing off the hook! Your overwhelming response to Part 1 of "Inside WWE '12 Universe Mode," was much appreciated. We're really happy that you enjoyed what you saw, there. But I know who you guys are. You want the "meat" of a feature, the heart and soul.

Well let's get right down to it, then. No fluff, or clever comments by me (except for the previous paragraph), just results. Without further ado, here's your WWE '12 Universe mode questions and answers (SPECIAL THANKS to WWE '12 Universe Designer, Jon Durr):

Q: (@TeamRealMFTalk): How many matches per card are there on a SmackDown, Raw, or PPV?

A: Monday/Friday = 4, Thursday = 3, PPV = 6

Q: (@ShazzyNortje): Are we able to create new matches on the day of a card?

A: You are able to edit the matches like in SVR 11. But this year you can make any match a title match.

Q: (@gardner_ebooks): Are we able to change the match type of an existing championship match, and keep the it up for grabs?

A: Yes.

Q: (@Novak1986): If you create your own show, are the WWE Superstars and Divas put on that show eligible for the WWE Draft?

A: Yes. But you can also choose to turn the Draft On/Off.

Q: (@JohnnyHilton): Is it 3 full brands and Superstars, or just 2 full brands and Superstars?

A: With the Edit Show feature, you are editing the existing show. Basically that means that Raw and SmackDown are full brands with championships that belong to it (you can select what title you want for the Major, Minor, Tag and Diva categories). The Superstars show however, is a combined show shared between Raw and SmackDown, and does not have its own titles. The reason for this is to keep the integrity of the scheduling/ranking logic working in Universe. 

Q: (@JohnnyHilton): Can we set music for the opening pyro of our created show?

A: Not this year, but I like the idea!

Q: (@DivaCaws): Do we have the ability to create our own championships?

A: You can set what championships you want to use from the list of 23 titles that we provide in the game.

Q: (@rjrothell): Does performing multiple finishers, or weapon strikes automatically result in injuries?

A: No. There is only a chance that an injury will occur.

Q: (@rjrothell): What are the 12 monthly PPV in WWE Universe?

A: Noted below:

January – Royal Rumble
February – Elimination Chamber
March - WrestleMania
April - Extreme Rules
May - Over the Limit
June - Fatal 4 Way
July - Money in the Bank
August - SummerSlam
September - Night of Champions
October - Hell in a Cell
October - Bragging Rights
November - Survivor Series
December - TLC

Q: (@rjrothell): Due to match-flow, can you still re-book an entire show?

A: Yes. You can re-book an entire show if you elect to return to the Universe Menu after every match. If you choose to go directly to the next match, you can either play or skip the match suggested by Universe, and then go to the next match.

Q: (@Dave_1307): Can you switch injuries on/off, even after a Superstar is injured, at anytime?

A: Injuries are always on.

Q: (@MrStorylines): Will Divas have their own Universe cutscenes this year?

A: Yes, there are cutscenes using Divas.

Q: (@AhMed_K1NG): Will Superstars or Divas have voiceovers in Universe?

A: No.

Q: (@TeamRealMFTalk): Can you change any match to a #1 Contenders match?

A: Technically no. But since you can create any match to be a title match, you could theoretically tell yourself that the winner of this match will be my new #1 contender, and then book them in the championship match.

Q: (@NickNitroV2): Can we have Superstars/Divas tied to more than one stable in Universe?

A: No.

Q: (@deangoodsell): Do you have the real TV show intro, or do you go straight to pyro

A: Straight into pyro for TV shows, BUT on PPV's, before the pyro, we have the intro animation with the voice over "And now WWE presents, ".

Q: (@Cantzon): Will we be able to change our attributes on our own, or only rely on momentum in Universe?

A: You can adjust your attributes if you get the Attribute Customizer. The Momentum feature has a max impact of 10 points per attribute (Speed and Agility are 5 points).

Q: (@Yash_Shukla): What are the options for interference?

A: You can choose to interfere in 1 on 1 matches. You are able to select any Superstar to interfere. The "Superstar Select" screen for choosing who to interfere with, will show if they are "Allies" or "Rivals" with the people in the match. When you interfere, you have 1 minute to cause mayhem. You can either help 1 person out or hit your finisher on both people if you want.

Q: (@Yash_Shukla): Can we insert our own created storylines in Universe? 

A: No, but we do have over 100 Universe Storylines (with branching depending on who wins).

Q: (@jrpbroski97): Can you replace WWE brands and PPVs with create-an-arena?

A: Yes.

Q: (@0johncena0): Can you have more than two participants in an already established singles championship match?

A: Yes. Book the match that you want with the champion in it and make if for the title.

Q: (@NSR19): Can you setup a created show, and save it for later?

A: When you Edit a Show, you can save it.

Q: (@0johncena0): Can you choose which championship you go after if you win the Royal Rumble?

A: Yes. There is a storyline for that.

Q: (@0johncena0): If a champion gets drafted, do they take that championship?

A: Champions will not be drafted.

Q: (@0johncena0): What month does Universe mode begin?

A: January

Q: (@viddyclassic): Is the championship history tracked?

A: Not this year, no.

Q: (@MattieLegend): Can we remove PPVs in Universe?

A: No, only replace.

Q: (@ur_captn): Can you switch championships on brands?

A: Yes.

Q: (@ahmed_deedoo): Can we make our own show on any day of the week?

A: Not this year.

Q: (@AnimeKing2005): Can you turn Universe mode on/off like last year?

A: Universe mode is now separate from Exhibition. Exhibition tracks its own champions (you can also vacate titles that you don't want present in Exhibition). If you don't want to play Universe, just don’t enter the mode.

Q: (@Si1927): How long are injuries usually?

A: Injuries can last anywhere from 2-6 months.

Q: (@FellaMcFellersn): Can we have an undisputed championship?

A: We do have the Undisputed Championship

Q: (@jgaflwwesickbro): Are there 2 MITB matches?

A: Just 1 MITB match at the Money in the Bank PPV.

Q: (@FlyinShoeMan): Can I change rankings?

A: Not this year.

Q: (@Big_Evil_66): Can I use injured Superstars/Divas in matches?

A: Not while they are injured. However, injured Superstars are not injured in Exhibition.

Q: (@BeldigoVinck): Is there a screen in Universe to display current feuds/alliances?

A: Like in SVR '11, this is displayed in the Superstar Information screen.

Q: (@Kamaria_chan): Can we make any championship have a ranking associated to it?

A: No, just the Major, Minor, Tag, and Diva championships.

Alright, I think I got all of them. If I didn't, then you can catch me on Twitter @stephensonmc and I'll try to make it up to you. Also, there were a lot of repeate questions, so if you asked one of the above and your name is not associated with it, it's because I used someone else. Don't be offended, the question is still there!

If this wasn't enough for you guys, then I may as well throw this in too. Here are the 23 championships available in WWE '12:

Posted Image

1. Hardcore Championship
2. Million Dollar Championship
3. Unified WWE Tag Team Championship
4. ECW Championship
5. Attitude Era Heavyweight Championship
6. Champion of Champions Title
7. Classic WWE Intercontinental Championship
8. WWE Light Heavyweight Championship
9. WCW World Heavyweight Championship
10. Undisputed Championship
11. Classic ECW Championship
12. European Championship
13. WCW Championship
14. WWE Championship (WCW spray-painted)
15. WCW World Heavyweight Championship (WCW spray-painted)
16. WWE Championship
17. World Heavyweight Championship
18. WWE Tag Team Championship
19. World Tag Team Championship
20. Cruiserweight Championship
21. Women's Championship
22. United States Championship
23. Divas Championship

I think that's enough for today, but that's not even close to everything in WWE '12. We meant it when we said "BIGGER, BADDER, BETTER," and it looks like you all are coming around on that notion. Until next time, you're welcome!
