I did notice a few small things that did not spoil my enjoyment but you may wish to know about.
It's kind of a shame you need to select the first 8 guys in game since it removes the surprise of the early entries.
Selecting the additional wrestlers is pretty quick if you already know who you want to include but it would be quicker to browse if they can be filtered by organisation and stable like you can in the MOTR mod. Also, the ability to select randomly from a group would be of use. Similarly, being able to select a surprise entry from a group would be fun.
I noticed a small typo in the results screen. I think it says Rumbe. Also, eliminations don't always name the person who did the eliminating. I think it's when they throw over the rope instead of going over with a suplex or other move. Lastly, if eliminations happen close together one line of text sometimes overwrites the other.
Just for stat nerds like me it would be cool if after the Rumble it can say who was in longest, who was in shortest and who got the most eliminations.
Just a few thoughts that I appreciate you may have already had and disregarded or that may not be possible.
I fixed the rumbe typo.
I addressed sorting by organization on Discord...I would have to re-write the entire selection process. It's not that it would be impossible to do, it's more that it's not something I want to do as it would be tedious work.
Eliminations that use the "throw over the top rope" animation don't store who did the throwing, and so when they're told to include the name of the person who did the eliminating, you end up with things like this: "Bret Hart eliminated by Bret Hart", which I find to be more annoying than just not having that information included for the time being. I've been looking for ways to get around this...and when I do, you can bet I'll include it.
The mode is already a memory vacuum, and tracking stats for each wrestler would make it even more so, so while I do like the suggestion, it's probably not feasible.
Because lots of other people have also asked for group sorting, I decided to go ahead and rewrite the selection routine. I'll be sure to include the random and mystery options.
