I don't know if its possible for me to create a good or great club within the current restrictions so honestly i don't know , also i don't think the current way of doing it will be sustainable as it doesn't cator for multi layered playing and has a meta which i never experienced previously and its rooted on having feeder clubs and a constant influx of new teams that sell and disband or eventually do , my general feeling is that its not sustainable but time will tell however Conradij believes it is so .
The problem with your statement is that if i wanted to i could be a cup winner or get the top spots etc however i didn't play that way i created a virtual world to escape in and loved my players however in your mind that is a problem , wut ? why do you have that type of mentality , however i cant say much as i got caught up in it , it was never a numbers game or anything like what you guys do and no it isn't a competitive game its a free to play browser game with 150 or so active people so big fish small pond thing , i don't need that neither do i care for it however i did care for my players and playing like you guys took that away big time and the general idea i have is not many of you are actually happy or filled with enjoyment which might be just a reflection of how i felt in the last 2 seasons .
Games should be multi layered and sustainable for those multiple ways of playing the game and not just built off elite or elite minded things it is a virtual world . I have no idea how you guys are able to approach it in this manner as the absolute ridiculousness that i adored turned into frustration and i refuse to be like that any longer .
I have said my peace and this is beating a dead cow . both our opinions will only be proven or dis-proven in time .
OK granted, I understand that you play for fun and that winning is a nice secondary.
However, there isn't anything stopping you keeping these bonds with players and still being competitive and doing what you've done for many seasons?
My team hasn't been competitive for a very very long time but I've worked up around players I like and have done OK. Its the fun of building the team that has made it for me. Winning the title is secondary but its always nice to win and that ultimately is my aim, to put my team building into a successful position?
What I find hard is that you don't think you can continue to enjoy the game because of the merger but this will not stop you from playing the game as you have done previously. The ONLY thing this changes is making leagues more competitive which means teams cant get free wins in low population divisions, it changes very little else. So basically from my point of view you are no longer happy you can play for fun but not get a massive advantage over other managers because of this?
Call me whatever you want, elitist or whatever, its all a bit mean don't you think, for someone who is trying to understand your point of view?
