I am not sure if this would necessarily work out or what the negatives would be but might it possibly work to offer some sort of credit to each owner in a world that has 0 turnover? For example, if all 32 owners return, each owner gets a $5 credit or something along those lines. If even 1 person does not return, then everyone is ineligible to receive it. I'm sure there will be some opponents to this but just an idea...

I think, mostly, that is addressed with the credits you get for staying 5 seasons (and then every 5 seasons after).

It is a motivation for a cheap skinflint like me

I like the idea of offering a special deal to an owner willing to commit to (and prepay for) multiple seasons.

They already give a discount for buying multiple seasons

I know but that's not what I am talking about. If a world has 0 turnover it's obviously a very good thing. They should, IMO, try to promote/encourage full worlds sticking together...

Too easy to manipulate.   "Hey, re-up, get your credit and we'll replace you after rollover."

Re-up for $25 just to get a $5 credit back, and then leave?  Seems like you're out $20.

How does that work?

New owner sends old owner a credit or GC.    It's been done before.

OK.  I'll buy that.

Don't you still get the world filled with 32 owners who want to be there? Is that such a bad thing? If you know an owner is leaving you could also have them replaced before the end of the previous season so technically there is no turnover. Either way, its not a temporary fix like finding a replacement owner is now. People might be finding a loophole, but like I said, it still leads to a world filled with 32 owners who want to be there which is what we want after all.

Well, if you're asking WifS to give away $160, it seems like they wouldn't want to be manipulated.

Do you like it when someone screws you out of money by "playing games"?

Individual loyalty to a league is already rewarded, as mentioned earlier. Not sure how the happy circumstance where everyone renewed is further rewarded.

Good point, Mike. Although, if they didn't want to be manipulated, I have to wonder why they'd have instituted that "new" owner pricing...

I don't think they should allow an owner to leave a world after sign up. Owner impatience adds to the trouble in filling worlds.

I tend to agree but the world is better off with an attentive owner than one who'll get bored.    I'd rather an owner leave before the season begins than during ST.

What about leagues with an MWR? Owner turnover isn't always a matter of owners not wanting to stick around
