Just to clear this up:   Last week, I said "Not this week, or next week".   That now refers to the week of 22 March through 28 March.  I also said "thousands" as in over 4000. I don't know, may

I've died and gone to Bellessaria Heaven. My new place is better than I could have imagined. Roads on 3 sides, with an edge of protected land so it gives the illusion my yard is huge. A river mou

I think there are only a few really nice ones there along the west coast line.... I had hopes of grabbing one of those but I was not online when it was released... 

I should correct myself here.... they are all really nice but there are only a few prime spots..

I think it's popular, there were actually lots of visitors before the release. My guess is that there are a few homes there with no ideal settings, and those are the ones being abandoned

Me with an unpopular opinion, but what @Chloe Dolores is saying is so true in my case: I don't want to stay in a region that keeps changing parcels ownership constantly. I prefer when stability gives the impression that you know your neighbors (a --fake-- sense of community perhaps?).

When I was looking for my own plot in Bellisseria (I decided to explore Belli quite late, in mid-December), frequently I would get a parcel in a region already full (probably a recent abandon), would look around and see the same names or groups everywhere I landed (a clear sign of the same people with month-old alts hopping from sim to sim) in the campers around me, occupying the most appealing places I couldn't get, and then finding two days later or so they had abandoned them. It became discouraging after some time and even let me to abandon a few less-than-appealing parcels out of frustration. I got a decent parcel later on (maybe not prime, but nice) and settled in,  but who knows how many people felt equally frustrated/annoyed with the behavior of some "game of homes" players (is that how it's called?), and decided to leave Bellisseria behind...

Give it a few weeks and the new regions will settle down as people who want a permanent home get them. If you're playing the long game, a few weeks is a drop in the ocean compared to living in that house for years.

There will always be GOH players it is addictive and fun for some time especially with new region excitement and new themes - until all the themes are out the game will still be played and probably some time after. It's not a game against others in my opinion just one against yourself and the system. But it can make things difficult if people scoop up more than one in the same region and keep them for a long period - this will always seem unfair. They can do that though as they have paid per account. As a hopper (one who came to find a community) I am now seeing the benefits of finding regions where people are sticking and also to find a home on my main account for ease of use.

Yep, I agree with this.  I've never seen a region where most every house stayed with an original owner, even with lots next to my Vic I thought were "perfect" were not their "Perfect", hedge/no hedge, sand only, grass only....everyone's hunt for their perfect is different.  House hoppers are just looking for the home that makes them happy.  There will be thousands of more houses coming, but it also takes time for the Moles to make them.

@Xeriko Melnik Agreeing with this above, and @Mitch Merricks . This is a random allocation system, it takes a while for people to find what suits them, and it also takes a while to work out what you want from what is available...and what , if any, the compromises need to be. Don't forget you can move too!

Oh, don't worry people, I understand how the game works. I was a GoH player for a couple of weeks too, after figuring out what was going on (it didn't take too long). I was just trying to agree with @Chloe Dolores in terms of settling in+down to give regions the time to become stable and maybe form communities (as time zone differences permit), and giving more people their own chance to find their dream parcel.

I will be putting someone's dream trad back in (next five minutes) in Donovan. Check the location! https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Donovan/228/112/0

This is the first post that has really made me regret that I'm no longer hopping.  I would LOVE to have that one!

I ALMOST made an alt premium yesterday (GOH withdrawal!), but then I totted up what I've spent on Belli and said "no, girl, go work on your taxes!".

^^ This..... well, except for the 'working on taxes' part - I'm still putting that off.
