Introduction:

Hello, Supercheaters. Its me again. And guess what? I've figured out how the whole career mode
goes. You may have read this before from my last guide. But incase you didn't I'll say it again.
Why go for one title,when you can go for all of them? Well, this guide is sure to help you out a
bit. Cause I just beat it today. So, if you want to read along then feel free. Just don't steal 
this. Cause it took me along time to fill all this out. So, anyways this guide is all about the
Career mode on Smackdown vs Raw 2009. It's alot different then Road To Wrestlemania. So, just 
read along and you'll figure it out.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Getting Started:

The main idea here is to have your chosen superstar or diva take the path and reach
the ladder of success and overcome the impossible by collecting all the titles of
WWE. Which in real life WWE is impossible for any WWE superstar to do. But choose 
carefully. Because you can only have one saved file at a time.

* Note that Career Mode seems to use its own difficulty levels.
While the sliders seem to have some effect, overall the game starts
off being extremely easy and winds up being extremely hard. When you start
things off in a lower title, the opponents are not very aggressive and rarely
reverse anything you do. As you go up in the rankings however and start fighting
for upper titles (especially the top two), opponents will reverse a lot more
and take the fight to you. As such, you can pretty much go all-out against
the early matches, but you'll have to take your time and work on your reversals
for the late ones.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Star Ratings:

After every match in Career Mode, you're given a match rating from one to five stars.
But it ain't easy like a piece of cake. You have to build up three traits.

--------------
Match Results:
--------------

Depending on the way the matches turn out. If you use variety of moves and taunts. Then
pick up the win then your match results are sure to be good for your ratings.


----------------
Crowd Reactions:
----------------

Crowd excitement goes up as you do successful moves, taunts, high risk moves, kicking out
of pinfalls and (in the case of Extreme Rules matches) setting stuff on fire like tables.
The more excitement you build for the crowd, the higher your rating scores.


-----------------
Technical Merits:
-----------------

Technical goes up as you do a wider variety of moves and do more damage to the opponent.

* Note that the more the damage you afflict on your opponent the higher your Technical Merit is.



If you want a five-star match, take the opposite approach. Use every move in your arsenal.
Work on your opponent until each of his body parts are red. Break both announcers' tables.
Use every grapple and every form of each Ultimate Control grapple. Just beat on him
like his name is Chuck Norris (just kidding Chuck!!!),
and you'll get a five-star against anyone on the roster.

*Note that the star rating also seems to get a bump when you fight special match types,
so avoid the plain Singles Matches if you want a maximum rating.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Attributes and Abilities:


After selecting an opponent to fight and what type of match you want to be in, your performance
in that match will increase your numbers once you're done, win or lose. 
The attributes specifically increase as you do a related action, as follows:


----------------------
Durability (defense):
----------------------

Increases as you take damage. You'll find this jumps quickly in the upper two titles
because of how often the opponent will reverse something and damage you.


------------------------
Strength (attack power): 
------------------------

Increases as you perform strong and ultimate control grapples.


-----------------------
Speed (running speed):
-----------------------

Increases your running attacks and grapples.


----------------------------------------------------
Submission (damage and length of submission holds):
----------------------------------------------------

Increases your submission holds to make your opponent cry for his mommy.


-----------------------------------------------
Technical (window of time to reverse attacks):
-----------------------------------------------

Increases as you pull off reversals. This is tough to raise early because 
opponents are passive, but easy to raise late when they get aggressive.


----------------------------------
Stamina (total stamina available):
----------------------------------

Increases as you do anything, but especially grapples.

 
--------------------------------------------
Charisma (momentum increase during taunts):
--------------------------------------------

Increases as you successfully taunt.


--------------------------------
Hardcore (weapon attack power):
--------------------------------

Increases the damage you afflict on your opponent with a weapon.




Now those are the Attributes you must raise on your superstar. Everytime you win a match,
depending on what type of match and how well you did. Your attributes will increase.
And at the bottom of you will see your overall attribute. Its a great way to build your CAS.
But that's not the only thing that will help you in career mode here are the following 
abilities you can unlock:
