I guess the fact that I stop by the main forum roughly 1x a month now nearly had me miss this gem of a thread. It's a real shame, because I've had specific interactions with most of the guys on both sides of this thread. The fact is, you can gain an advantage by having 2 teams in the same world, as I also do. But the more important thing is, that if you are actually doing it, then it's going to be obvious and you should be kicked out of the game for it. Likewise, if your panties are in such a knot that you really think someone is running multiple teams for that purpose, then you take this game way too seriously.
For those that don't know, I did have someone go to CS about me running multiple teams because they deemed them to close... and to this day, that person(s) never had the maturity to confront me personally. It's a shame that someone would be so paranoid and spineless over a sim game.
I skimmed some of the comments and had to laugh at things like "the only reason you'd have 2 teams is to cheat!" Really? That's how you think? You must be a very sad individual (sorry, not taking the time to find out who it was, and frankly I don't care). In my case, it's because A.) I'm playing for free on 1; B.) I joined up with the other for a little contest and good conference fun; and C.) By having both teams doing the same stuff at the same time, it's much more convenient.
Some of you guys really need to get away from your online worlds and relax a little.
