I had a conversation w/ Trescool this morning and for those of you who do not read the FUN forum, I have copied his post from there to toss out here. I happen to agree w/ him and if we can't have interleague tournies, then possibly we could at least play in one room like we used to w/ family only this time it would be FUN and Cases...its a thought. I would love to host/play in large tournies again. I miss those days and I miss alot of the peeps that left Cases. Just my opinion =) Debi
Here is his post =)
Let me rant for a minute.
As you know, I have been a TD in this league practically since it became a league. I have made many wonderful friends and play here exclusively. I am wondering though how much better off we would be, now that we have been here a year and established ourselves as a great and viable league, if we tried to merge and become one league instead of the 3 or 4 that exist. I sincerely miss playing the folks that never switched over to our league. I am wondering moreso what would be thought of if we could have interleague tournaments somehow. Kinda like the world series for the American and National Leagues in Baseball, or the AFL and NFC in Football. I want our tournies to be large like they were when I started playing and make it truly an honor to be in the top 20 out of 300 players vs about 100.
I have beenthinking of going back and rejoining the other leagues but then realize that I have a large number of bux built up here and that is likely the reason no one wants to leave whatever league they are in. These bux as we know are useless other than for tourney participation but a lot of pride is gained in getting them. Also it is nice to see the stats and player record over long periods of time play. Is there some way to rejoin the league and make it very viable as ONE league with ALL players competing nicely. Or is it just that too many players want to be TD's and not enough time and space to let them all host. should we consider having multiple tournies held at the same time if some do not want 2-3 hour long tournies?
I am just ranting here and all input would be greatly appreciated
