This game is very complex and the most fun you will have is by joining a league with experienced owners that are willing to either teach you directly or teach you by letting you screw up and learn that way. You will learn by rebuilding a team or taking over a franchise that you can tweak and see effects (and ask questions, even if people make fun of you when you ask them). You will not learn by starting a world, and in fact, your world will only be worthwhile if you get people who are committed and/or very good owners already. These people will not spend $25 per team to join a world started and being run by somebody with no experience. (Unless they are your friends and family, clueless newbies lime me or your 24 other aliases). I can see the appeal of joining a new world (I did that with my second team) where there is no baggage from different styles of management, but join a young world or new world if you want, just don't start your own. You probably already figured out that when you join (or create) a new world, not all teams are created equal. Players are randomly generated and you could get a good team, but you could get a crappy team, and these guys already have good and bad contracts assigned. This is not better than being able to pick a team in an ongoing league...
