    League issues

    I've been playing here quite a while now and I enjoy it. However, recently, it's been obvious that we have too many leagues/too few players. Leagues are being paused for months because of not enough owners, and even a lot of running leagues have 8+ missing owners. I'm not sure what to do about not enough owners.

    I do wish there was a way to consolidate leagues or take a team to another league. I have a couple of teams in paused leagues that I SO much don't want to lose. Has there been any talk between the devs on this?

    Okay, no comments?

    Maybe instead of letting people create new teams and put them in greek leagues, they just have to pick an existing unowned team. Also, no new mentor leagues, since they tend to die after the 5 season period is over.

    a few years back, they did a lot of league mergers where owned teams in dead leagues were brought together to form a new league. problem is you lose all the history of merging leagues (player stats too) and it was a cumbersome process to implement.

    i know at one point a long range desire was to make teams portable in some way to transfer them to different leagues (making all leagues a part of one universe) but that is a major overhaul.


    I think if a group of owners who had dying leagues they wanted to save go together, they could do a lot of "take a team in my league, i'll take a team in yours" and save a bunch of leagues.

    Simple Rules:

    1. Stop recruiting new owners for your half dead crappy leagues. Your efforts would be better used looking for a stable league with owners who actually care about their teams. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or a superstud player, then dont take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."

    Lawn Chair was full at the beginning of the CSFBL year and now we have 13 openings. One of them we know had health issues, the others?
