After much deliberation, we are proud to announce the 20 owners!
We would like to thank all the 37 applicants, who took the bold leap of faith towards ownership. For those of you who applied to be owners but were not chosen, you can still participate in the game as a manger or scout. If you were wanting more of a leadership role, feel free to talk to an owner and see if they need/want additional assistance. In particular I’d advise you to consider a manager role as the manager serves as the owner’s right hand man and fills in for the owner as needed. However there are no rules on how each team runs itself, and the responsibilities of each role were just suggestions. For example an owner could decide to involve the entire team in all the executive decisions and make choices by a team wide vote or select one or two scouts to be part of an “executive committee” with him. Those are just two examples but you can organize your teams in any way that the owner and the team agrees upon.
Starting immediately the owners are allowed to begin recruiting for a manager and head scout (required positions) and can also recruit additional scouts if they so chose. Just a note, owners can continue to hire new scouts throughout the course of the game. There is no limit on the number of scouts a team may have as we welcome anyone and everyone in this game.
