It's barely noticeable in my experience. And as the poster above said, may as well do it sooner rather than later.

Nobody is saying Boble didn’t work hard. Nobody is saying the org was not good.
What I have been saying from the beginning is that in MMAT this UFC swallow all business model is flawed as running an org takes a lot of time. An org with 350 fighters is like running 2 big orgs.
This isn’t like IFC with just a few divisions, this is much more work and bound to fail. All while taking down smaller orgs by buying entire divisions.
Now, unless some dude with lots of time on his hands takes it, we have a problem in this bracket.
Hope that clarifies.
I think this is where we see things very differently. So what if running an org with 350 fighters is like running two big orgs? If someone is comfortable and motivated to do such a thing then it is down to them as a paying and active member of the game. No one is saying that you or anybody else has to run such a monster. It's simply your personal preference. You're making it sound like Boble did something wrong when quite clearly he did something pretty right for a good chunk of time.
Also, my org doesn't run every division it's true but I do have around 230 fighters and prefer to have huge divisions. Why? Because I personally think it is very cool to have the opportunity for fighters to work their way up from the bottom of a 50 man division all the way to championship glory. I also feel that it makes the IFC belt extra competitive and something very meaningful (possibly just my own delusions there but whatever lol) Another big reason why I think having bigger divisions is better is because it is so much easier to arrange fights. It's really boring fighting the same people over and over again and having a big roster makes the chances of this less.
The size of the org isn't the reason that Boble is finishing up. He says he doesn't have the time (no doubt some of the BS that comes with running an org contributes too) It was no more likely to finish then your own org. You will get bored in time and you will close up. Same as me. Same as every org here.
Boble has now said that he won't sell it. I understand this completely. I'd probably feel the same way. He has given a heads up though so anyone who is thinking about or interested in running an org there is a POTENTIAL gold mine here but then there has been for ages after NJMMA and CCF and countless others in the ID range (all smaller than SyFi) closed shop because the owner got bored/didn't have the time. Even then it's no guarantee that it will be a good org. I left NJMMA with two or three months worth of booked and paid arenas, a decent roster and 500k in the bank and the guy who took over still messed it up.
Lastly, if no one does decide to step up and create an org it will barely register as a blip. There will be no problem in this bracket. The game will carry on no problem. Just as it did with 310k and Kings MMA leaving The Global Colosseum as the only org in the ID range, just as it did with 315k when The Beat Down left IFC as the only org in the ID range. The fighters closest to 322k are welcome in IFC and will just put on more shows to cover any roster increase. The fighters 325k and over have other choices. Hell, The Global Colosseum has just signed Rick Piano to it's open weight 320k division. It's already happening.
Have faith Monsieur Camara!

Anyone with 2 brain cels could have seen this coming to be quite honest.
The biggest loss here is the 320K bracket , you idiots absorbed entire, healthy orgs to create a 350 fighters monster and now its bye bye
We should sign a petition to rename the Evil Empire to The Idiot Empire.
What are you talking about? It was the best ID org in the game from it's start to it's finish and it lasted a good while longer than some of the other shitty org's that have come and gone in it's time. The dude obviously worked ridiculously hard with it and the fact that pretty much no one has a bad word to say about it says it all
