Hold up here guys. I don't know that the "n+1" situation always means an easy battle.
Several times I've seen people mention how they are considered by guys they have no interest in, which could result in the appearance of n+1 when in fact that's not really the case at all.
Additionally, the person you decide to battle for a recruit you think is the weakest of the bunch may decide differently and put up a bigger fight than you expect.
Personally, assuming it doesn't happen by accident when I didn't intend it, if I have an n+1 scenario and someone decides to fight me, I'm only giving up easily if I was already planning on dropping that particular recruit anyway. Otherwise, be prepared for an onslaught.
So I caution anyone who thinks someone else with an "n+1" means an easy battle.
Great, but if I'm going to battle, I'm much more likely to go after an n+1 than an n-2, as spasticity said.
I know going in that it might be a battle, but I also know that you have no choice but to drop one recruit. Then, all of a sudden, you are n+1 AND in a battle, and that signals to other coaches that you are going to leave someone else unprotected. Then it starts another battle. If people are paying attention, and your recruits are good enough, you end up in a situation where you are having to fight for all your recruits.
