Henceforth to be referred to as "Regular CowBelle"?

I'm ready to get this done!

Ditto!

Seriously when is this going to happen?

OK lets be honest here.

Joey Belle is now down to 14 owners and they ALL are for a merger.

It isn't that admin won't merge worlds, they will (albeit, reluctantly), as long as EVERY owner in the world is on board AND the numbers work.

Right now Joey Belle is in the drivers seat.

Regulars is basically out of the picture at this point. With one owner voicing that he is NOT wanting to merge, that pretty much kills the idea. WIS will not forcibly remove an owner who has been there for 4 seasons. End of story, unless you can convince him to leave of his own accord.

More Cowbell, I believe has every owner on board to merge, but have 4 too many owners for Joey Belle. Now they have just recently (like over the last week or two) picked up a couple of new owners and they also got a couple of the other type of "new owners" right away when they first went public.

If kcatlantis can convince 4 of the 5 new owners to pull out of the world, THEN a merger can happen. That's the easiest path as of today.

Problem is no one wants to give up their current team.
Secondly, there is a reason no one has been interested in most of the open teams in Joey Belle. 

Talking someone into abandoning their good team from an imbalanced world, to take a bad team in another imbalanced world is very very unlikely to ever happen.

I remember when all three were considered decent worlds, sad to see them fall apart.

I would think that a 'merged' world would have a increased number of good teams and be extremely competitive.

Merged worlds have largely been a failure because of that.  Seems that a lot of owners were attached to winning and not necessarily the team.

Are merged worlds really more of a failure than a world that sits with 10+ openings for 2 + months?

I don't understand why starting a world from scratch is so popular, but merging is so unpopular.  Don't people realize that a merged world starts from season 1?

That's sort of what the merged worlds became after a few seasons.
