Any particular reason why you and justan00b think it's stupid?
I think it creates a great opportunity to work through a backlog & at the same time utilize the benefit of gamesharing. It is much easier to form groups when games are released. Also, it is more likely for groups to form when only 1 resell is needed. So it makes sense for someone w/ a backlog to form a group this way. I will definitely try to form groups such as this in the future.
