    Just terrible. Less content for the same price as last year.

    I get the large on-disc roster, but this isn't worth $30 for 10 characters. Hardy Boys or not, this is kind of awful. Even If you add in the Cena deluxe edition and Kurt Angle pre-order, it's not enough content.
    So, we gotta go a full year without half the Cruiserweight division (if they are all still signed next year) and key NXT/British figures like Almas, Bate, Dunn & Seven?
    Why?
    I love a large majority of the on - disc roster, but the DLC packs are really, really disappointing.
    Asking us to pay half the price of the game, but giving us 1/3 of the value.

    - Missing a ton if cruiserweights does suck.
    - UK guys are not signed to exclusive deals, so they can't be in the game. However, rumors has it that their heads will be in the custom heads in CAW to make them easier.
    - I am thinking the source/rumor of Almas declining to be in the game is now correct. No reason for Lars to be in and him not.
    - I'm fine paying for everything, but you're absolutely right. $20 max for this year - $30 is a bit extreme...even for Team Extreme...sorry.

    Did we ever figure out the source of that rumor? I don't see why Almas isn't in the game, but assuming everyone who should have been in the game that isn't is due to them declining is a weird slope to start down. Sometimes people just don't make it in for whatever reason. Like Ellsworth - the guy's on TV for the last year. Do we think he declined the game too?

    Meh to the Season Pass, but I'm the guy who already bought the Deluxe because I knew I'd get it anyway.
    They would usually charge $10 for a HoF Showcase DLC, and this year the Pass includes the career attribute boost that they also normally sell separately for $10, so they probably see it as a swap for "equal" value. I disagree with it because the Showcase would come with a bunch of guys and some new arenas...but then again, most of last year's DLC characters are around this year. It balances out in the sense that we're getting way more characters on-disc, but less through DLC.
    Big mistake by them to not adjust to price accordingly though, because they've already established what a $30 value was for the Pass, and this year doesn't meet that.

    - Honestly, I would have to look again. It was from a decently "famous" Twitter person. Ellsworth also stated he was sad he didn't make it in I believe, and most others that don't make it in are either in lawsuit or just simply didn't come to terms with 2K (legends). I mean Almas might have wanted more and rejected it since they didn't give it to him? I'm not sure either, just speculation.
    Same. Deluxe is the best way to go regardless. And basically agree on the rest of your post haha.

    Wasn't there about 20 unique DLC wrestlers last year? I'll admit the DLC this year is great but only half of the pieces of DLC, all things considered I kinda wondered if we were gonna get less DLC due to such a large on disc roster, still and all I can't see how 2K can justify the same price point on the season pass when the content is lesser then last year

    Do they even have to negotiate with him? For alumni, sure. But I would think by now WWE has options for games, toys, and all that crap built into the contracts for current roster.
    Is it possible he asked to be left out and they honored that? Sure. It just seems like a random rumor to me though. Either way, hopefully they'll have his animations in to makes CAWs a little better though.

    That it's 2017 and roster editing is still behind a paywall for this game is insulting.

    Even more insulting that 2K raised the price once they took over the series. But there isn't a lot of games media focus on wrestling games so it doesn't matter. Imagine the uproar if Madden, NBA2K, or The Show did something like this.

    I believe this is one of the reasons WWE changes newly signed talent's name, so they can have control over their likeness.
    On-disc content looks excellent, so far, but this downloadable content is unacceptable.  I guess trust is out the window, next year  we're going to have to wait and see before we commit our deluxe edition dollars.

    All the talents get royalty checks from game sales so I don't know why he would turn down the chance to be in the game.
    Shocker, the DLC guys are all pretty much "must have" characters that have been on the roster for months now and should clearly be in the game anyway.  Surprised Bobby Roode wasn't on the list. 
    I'm pretty close to jumping on the 2k boycott bandwagon at this point.  I know that DLC is all the rage nowadays, but these guys really take it to a disgraceful level.  NBA 2k18 is a pretty good game on the court, but honestly I regret my purchase now because of the incredibly distasteful business tactics 2k has exhibited via the microtransaction.  I love wrestling games but I'll stick with my beloved Fire Pro if a $100 glitchfest is the alternative.
    Won't cancel my preorder this year, but next year I will be waiting till more info is released before I purchase 2k19. They've given me no reason to believe in them after this paper thin DLC roster

    i canceled my pre-order after seeing this thread just now...this is exactly what i have been saying with these gaming companies making these games now... look back at 2k14 on ps3 and look at the roster, the features we had in that game and the creativity and of course all of the dlc, the 30 years of wrestle mania alone was worth the price of admission by it self! then look at 2k15 - 2k17 and of course now, yeah the overall game looks to be polished but they must be crazy if think ima spend that kind of money for a half butt product... im done and i mean it...not buying no more games until i really see something worth my money and time...
    I mean, this is like 2k18 making LeBron James a dlc. Or Madden making Brady a dlc. Hardy Boyz have been on the roster for almost a year now straight, no reason for them to be bought separately, other than the fact that they know fans want to play as them and are willing to pay extra to do so. Glad I hadn't ordered any version yet. I'm still undecided

    This may have made my decision for me to sit this year out. I'm not impressed. I've always purchased the DLC but this year it is laughably thin and yet they are still asking the same amount for it. I don't see me picking up the game this year unless something is released in the next week or so that shows this a must purchase item. At this time, I'm not impressed with the info out of this game and with some many other titles coming, I think I'll be skipping and waiting until next year.

    Thanks. And that season pass is like getting access to all the DLC when they come out, correct?

    Yeah. Day one, you'll get the career kickstart and game accelerator (unlock all and edit attributes). You'd also get the two Cenas, Batista, RVD, and Angle right away if you do preorder the deluxe.
    The other DLC they didn't give dates yet, but it's usually one pack per month.
