Has anyone else had this problem?? With the new patch for EWR 4.0, the Mcmahon Turmoil and FWF in particular although I haven't tried the other yet, I'm not sure what I'm doing but out of nowhere Chris Benoit and Edge lose all morale. I don't hire anyone that they have a bad relationship with, it just goes down. In fact, it seems it happens when I hire staff members. It's always the same two people, and never anyone else. Does anyone know why this happens or how I can fix it??
In my current game (with the latest patch and Adam's stats), Chris Jericho and Brock Lesnar dropped big-time in morale that I had to release both (I'm going the Steve Austin route and letting both cool off before rehiring them, assuming TNA doesn't get good enough soon to hire them). I think Jericho was upset that I used Goldberg as cannon-fodder for his feud vs. Hurricane, but I'm not 100% sure why Brock was upset.
I don't think there's a bug though, because with the guys that were upset in my game, I can see why they would be. In your case, perhaps Benoit and Edge were upset at someone's backstage behaviour (Undertaker perhaps?).
I've had a similar problem with Spanky, Steve Corino, and Jay Briscoe in my RoH game. Their morale has plummetted lately, and no amount of using them in matches seems able to raise it. Jay Briscoe is already to the point of not expending much effort in matches (which is a shame because he's killing my efforts to make a team out of him and Paul London). I think part of it might have to do with my turning Mark Briscoe heel so the brothers could feud, but I can't turn him back since he's been out for the last six months with a knee injury. I can only guess that Corino is upset that I'm not using Lucious enough. I don't know what's bothering Spanky, however.
I'll jump on and say that in my opinion, EA Sports has outdone themselves this year. Between NBA Live 2003, NCAA Football 2003 and Madden NFL 2003, EA Sports got like $150 of my money in a three-month period. And I don't begrudge them a dime...
