Well you haven't been very effective your way. I would think you would welcome the help.
That or you have been effective and this is your idea of a good sim, in which case you NEED the help.
haven't been very effective? ive influenced a ton of things that i am happy were influenced in the way i influenced them. you have accomplished nothing except that everyone hates you, although for some reason, seble keeps letting you back eventually, expecting different results. i'd say thats the definition of insanity of this point, but... well, actually, yeah, i would say that exactly. so seble is insane, and the rest of us can't stand you. could you back up a step and explain to me how this qualifies you to give advice on affecting change? you did affect a lot of change, in the sense that none of us knew you, but now we can't stand you - but that's not really the kind of change im going for. note that i have plenty of material to work with, should i decide to go that route, thanks to you.
often, the problem is seble has good intentions, he just goes wayyyyyyyyy to far, not appreciating the subtlety of this game. that definitely has bit us all in the ***, and lead many of us to want to avoid major overhauls at all costs. suffice it to say, the last couple did not go so hot. seble's last major overhaul caused the game to shed a full 1/3rd of the d1 population, because of his d1 recruit generation changes. i want him to attempt to fix it, yes - ive been pushing for years - but the outcome of that event surely makes me not want him to overhaul other areas of the game. i can tolerate HD as is, i don't know if that will always be true. its a shame because on some level, i really like seble, and respect his openness and a variety of other things. but i just dont think he has the player-level appreciation of the game to make the kind of adjustments that are required. i really think he needs to pick up some real teams and compete to the best of his ability, to learn what its like to be a competitive player, before he makes another major overhaul to anything. i actually said that the first time 3 to 4 years ago. so i think you are largely failing to recognize the historical context many of us have, that leads us to such different conclusions than you. you don't know the facts or the context, but criticize us for reaching different conclusions all the same - there is something seriously wrong with that. that should be obvious.
