If you wanted to wait for more cowbell to come up, you would wait. If you didn't care what world you join, why not force you into ABU or the other one? OK make it three.
Still applies. If I don't want to join ABU because they always have 15 openings but I do want to join More Cowbell because I think that was a funny skit, I'm not joining ABU because it's one of the two available worlds. I'll wait. That's not good for business.
Goes back to my post about good worlds/pro-active commish. While it was only 4, I was shocked to have that many(100% retention the previous season). Fortunately, we had three on the waitlist from the previous season so it wasn't that big of a deal but. had I waited until the last minute, I'd have been scrambling for an owner.
And I disagree about forcing owners(or attempting to force) into signing up for worlds by limiting availability.
