Look guys, if you think the worlds are 2/3 empty now, just wait until v3 is installed. If the last 7 months of beta testing, and what has been done to fix this disaster, is any indication close to the final product, WIS will be a wasteland. If some of you have been around as long as I have, if you remember, everybody disliked v1 and the job Joe Conte and Tarek Kamil were doing. But, the worlds were full, and it was difficult to move up to the next level. I remember when N. Carolina was the first human team taken in Rockne. The world forums were full of chatter, with great competition, and the game was fun. Then Joe and Tarek left for a new venture, v2 came in with all of it's many changes and WIS started its downward spiral. Sure there have been a few spurts of interest, but not because of anything WIS has done. A couple of years ago there was an attempt to fill up Heisman, and it was filling up for a while. There was even a cardboard trophy that was mailed around the country and Canada, to the D-1 Champ. Currently in the 3 worlds that I belong there are 563 humans coaching 1836 teams, that's 30.6 %. I took a D-III team last month to generate some interest for myself, and I didn't play another human until the playoff semi finals. When beta testing started in Feb, by the time I found out about it, some of the new worlds were actually full. There was an interest in v3. I wanted a team so I wouldn't miss out on anything. But now coaches have dropped out of that, and some don't even recruit. But I got a team, and after 7 months, haven't learned a thing. Nothing has been accomplished with the game, only window dressing.
I say bring back v1 ( they say that can't be done), or fix the things that are wrong with v2. But I'm afraid that v3 will finally make the scene (2015??), and there will be 562 humans, I'll most likely be gone. But I can say that in the last 8 years that I have made some great friends, and we speak, or e-mail each other, and I'm thankful to WIS for that. But it's funny, none of those friends were made in the last couple of years. WIS has really changed, and not for the better. In my opinion, consolidating the worlds will only aggravate more coaches, and force them to leave. If anyone takes away my Okla team after 72 seasons, they can have all of my teams. R.I.P. What If Sports.
