Yeah, that was in fact a bit of luck on my part. I thought when I went
for the springboard moonsault that Beth Phoenix would move out of the
way and Kelly Kelly would just splash into the matt, serious screw up
there, or that I'd knock Beth down, but not be able to capatalize on
the move. As it happened Beth was stunned long enough to go for a
victory roll and pin her to the mat for a full three count.
Now, one thing I'd like to do here is work on the general AI system to
play to an opponent's strengths. That is if a wrestler is good in a
skill set to tend to favor those moves over other less skilled moves.
For instance, Beth Phoenix is a strong female wrestler and tends to
favor powerhouse moves such as powerbombs, various bodyslams, and
suplexes. In fact, her finisher is the Glam Slam which is basically
just a press slam.
Now, someone like Kelly Kelly is small and light. She's almost 50
pounds lighter than Beth Phoenix, and she usually does well with hit
and runn attacks such as small punches, spin kicks, missile dropkicks,
etc. Also her small size and stature makes her more naturally built
for arial type moves like flying crossbody attacks, springboard
moonsaults, etc. You have to play to a performers strengths if you
want to win a match.
