This is the anti-******** thread. Note that I put "cheaters" in quotes because I don't consider having multiple teams in one world cheating, whether they're using 1 team to supplement the other or not, it's not as big of a deal as people are making it out to be. I could "cheat" tomorrow and you'd never know about it...I just see no need at the moment, and I find the logging in and out to be more of a pain in the *** than the FSS benefit that I could/might get. Just the way some of the guys are carrying on about this is unreal, so I thought I'd pipe up and help remind people to look at the big picture here.
My point overall is that you make your own success in this game, and that there are too many solutions to this "problem" to be going around asking for the (second) heads of billyg, girt, alblack, emy, a in the b, etc, etc, etc...if anything, when I see them or their aliai in a world, I perk up. These guys aren't good because they "cheat" (again, I'm not even inferring that they do), they're good because they've cut their teeth for years on this game, figured out what works and what doesn't, and have made a pretty good HD plot for themselves. Nothing is preventing YOU from doing the same exact thing. The playing field IS even...get your levels out, and you'll see.
The circular arguments that fail to discuss resolutions are very annoying, and this is my black-gloved fist against it/them.
I don't want to get into a huge debate here, but I have to address one thing. Having multiple teams in a world is not necessarily cheating. Using one of your teams to look at FSS for your other team is ABSOLUTELY cheating. If people are doing that, the field is not level. I don't know how anyone can argue this point.
Regarding me figuring out what works and what doesn't: I may not be a HD legend or a forum regular but I think I've done pretty well. I have one team, no aliases, and that team recently won a national title and has finished in the top 15 for eight consecutive seasons. I'm not some losing coach complaining because I can't win. Just a guy who really likes HD and wants to beat other good coaches fair and square.
