hughes - consider the difficulty of allowing multiple teams on an ID. its easier to allow just 1 team per ID total. but they had to expand that - they did the work to allow 1 per world. still, it takes more effort still to manage multiple teams in a single world on a single ID! how do you control each? what if you play yourself? managing the sessions can get tricky there and I dont blame them for keeping it simple.
the reality is we dont know if the reason it was designed for single teams per world was just because it was easier, because admin didnt really think about people wanting multiple teams, or because admin didnt want them in the game. for you to claim you know which of the three it is, that is what is absolutely outrageous!
besides, regardless of how it was designed, the issue was quickly raised by, you know, guys having multiple teams. and as has been made ABUNDANTLY clear, old admin was fine with it. his great in-game friend is famous (at least among the older crowd) for once running 26 teams simultaneously. old admin was perfectly informed of the situation and allowed multiple teams. people had multiple teams in the same conference regularly and that was fine for years. eventually, a rule was put into place to only allow 1 team/conference, but teams could be 10 miles apart or in the same division, or anything really - and multiple teams/conference was still very common - but people only got in trouble if they did something wrong, AND someone complained. key word - AND. for example, throwing a CT title game with one team to get your other team in the NT, you could lose a team for that. but nobody, to my knowledge, was kicked out without the notion of impropriety. as with all of the multiple team rule changes, there was never an effort by site staff to immediately enforce those rules, and the sentiment was always that coaches who werent abusing the situation were not the concern.
if you think about it, you really are being a total hypocrite - you are essentially saying everyone else is talking out their *** - when YOU are talking out your *** yourself! you have no idea what happened in the first several years of this game, when old admin established the original rules. if you did, you wouldnt make such ignorant claims.
i still dont understand the ignorance with respect to why people would want 2 teams in a world. YOU HAVE 3 TEAMS IN 2/DAY WORLDS. dont you want them all? for years, if you didnt want 2 teams/world, you could only have 1. if you wanted more, you had to pick them up in tark. are you seriously so closed minded that you cannot even understand that others might have wanted those extra 2/day teams? i mean seriously, its so basic, its just a ridiculous drum to continue beating!
