3. Even though I'm glad this trade was undone, let's not forget that MFN-1 is not a real league. It is a "testing" league. I don't really care what happens here as far as the outcome of games/seasons goes. For me, it's just a league to use as a guinea pig to test new strategies, etc.
I couldn't disagree more with that statement. We have a lot of long time owners in this league and would challenge that MFN-1 is just as competitive as any other league. The only difference here is that we have JDB in with us and have first crack at updates and game feedback. I have seen several posts where people ask which is the best MFN league, and I wouldn't hesitate to put this one right in the mix. How an owner treats this league is something else, but it is as viable, if not more, than any other MFN league.
My opinion that is is a "testing league" is based on the actual description of this league, which reads in part:
"This is the bleeding edge beta league
. What this means is that as new features are considered stable enough to introduce into the game engine, they will appear in this league for real-world testing
immediately, whether that is in the middle of the offseason, in the middle of the season, or even the day before the league championship. By participating in this league, you must understand that it is possible - likely, even - that these updates could cause unexpected results for the games in this league
, sometimes for extended portions of the season".
