I was going to join a private world....but I noticed 3 owners left "their" old team to take over teams with much better talent. This throws a red flag up in my opinion. If owners has their teams for 5 or 6 seasons or more than bolt to fill open teams with better talent ...... is this a normal thing in HBD? I mean if they don't like their team after running it for that long....why go to another team and do the same there. I think I read a remark from Miket23 about respect and caring about your team and world. Many owners have been in this world for 15 or more seasons......again I ask should I be alarmed or give it a shot?
gbuck, are you refering to guys leaving their team while the world is waiting to fill, or just generally speaking at the end of a season?
Sure, plenty of people move around. Myself included. I have never left one team expressly to take on a "better" one, though. My teams exist in vacuums for me (I leave them when I feel it's time to leave...for whatever reasons, and they are varied).
If you're referring to guys bolting while waiting for the world to fill, the suggestion I proposed is intended to stop just this sort of "grass is greener" bolting,. If people were locked in, the world would fill fatser and they would not get antsy waiting or even see those better teams as options.
MikeT, because he's just talking and not listening, is advancing the fallacy here that (if my suggestion did what I intend for it to do), worlds would take just as long to fill but you'd be stuck waiting while they did. Logically speaking, that doesn't hold up. In the worlds where I've experienced owner departures of the sort I'm describing, we've wound up in some cases with enough owners to fill all the openings twice by the time we actually get started. How much sooner do you think you'd start if every new guy lowered the number of openings? Worlds fiill more quickly the closer they are to filling.
