Posted by plague on 9/7/2013 9:27:00 PM (view original):As it stands now there are probably 50+ total dog shiit teams open in horrible worlds..Most of the teams have been filled in early seasons with world swaps and aliases.. Why would anybody with a brain take these teams? Lets say you had 32 owners who wanted to start a new world.. I would imagine WIS would say no, we have too many openings..
I see no reason to contract a world unless their is 32 openings. Worlds will contract on their own, if 20 owners are willing to wait it out until the world fills(however long that may be) then I see no reason to force them to fold the world that they desire to play.
The theory that someone will just pick up another team is flawed. I was playing 1 GD team and I got fired and I have yet to replace that 1 team and I have no short term plans to replace that team. According to the belief of many I would replace that spot by taking on another team, which did not occur with me. If I did not get fired I would still be playing that team.
With all that said it took almost 3 weeks but today I finally filled the world I am commish. In 29 seasons I had never taken a week to fill a world and in about 20-25 of those seasons I filled the world in less than 24 hours.
If you had a team in a world which would you prefer.
A- WIS decides to give you the boot from that team?
B-You decide to boot yourself from that team?
Because that is what it comes down too. I would prefer to quit a world when I am ready to quit that world and not a day earlier.
You are always going to find owners who want to start in a new world. For whatever reason there seems to be player appeal to start season 1 in a world.
If worlds start folding I am less likely to take on a existing team in a world that has a chance of one day folding. The domino effect of folding worlds is you doom worlds that may of had a chance.
