Zeno was erasing universes because he thought there were too many and most of them weren't meeting standards. That's a point the anime and manga have in common so it's a good indication that's the real reason. If you leave Universe 7 as it is that does nothing to address the mortal development being well below standards (and worsening in the manga continuity). It goes from being the second worst of 12 to the worst of 5, and unless Shin and Beerus suddenly get a huge injection of hypercompetence and perform a miraculous turnaround, what's going to happen the next time Zeno is feeling antsy and decides he might have too many universes? Universe 7 surviving won't be down to Shin and Beerus, it'll be down to Goku and friends bailing their butts out of the fire.HeroR wrote:I don't think the option would make Zen'o happy, otherwise he wouldn't be erasing universes to begin with. Zen'o also made that deal with Bergamo knowing he had no real chance of winning since Present Zen'o has seen Goku fight. Why do you think they told Goku not to hold back if they thought Bergamo posed a real threat to Goku to the point that Goku had to used his full power.BlueBasilisk wrote: And I think people overestimate how cruel and fickle Zeno is. Just ask him if it's okay and see if there's an option that makes him happy. Bergamo addressed him directly and he had no issues with it and he has likewise shown that he's fine with Goku talking to him on multiple occasions.
As for Beerus, he doesn't really get a say. The wish is what the winning fighter wants, not what the winning universe wants. If Beerus and Shin were doing their damn jobs like they should, Universe 7 wouldn't even be in this mess. They'd be free and clear. So, either keep the gods around and have them split the workload with Beerus and Shin since they clearly aren't doing things right, or just make them retire or resign. We know that they can.
Again, why should Beerus and Shin take in the losers from other universes, including their gods. They had just an equal chance to survived and they blew it. All the lower universes are loser who didn't do their jobs, so it isn't like they're can look down on Shin and Beerus. And to be blunt, I don't think anyone in U7 give enough of care about the other universes and will probably listened to Beerus and Shin when they point out all the problems they will run into if they start smashing universes together.
Then you have the other point which which came up in this arc but has been hinted at in the RoF arc and all the way back to Jaco: Universe 7 is very barren when it comes to life, thanks again in large part to Shin and Beerus being too incompetent to do anything about Frieza and Buu. It leaves very narrow room for growth and development and it really hampers the storytelling potential of the universe as all the noteworthy warriors are present except for Buu and Uub, and the only real threat left to offer is...Frieza. There are the other four universes but we know jack squat about them to say what they might have to offer.
Of course, there's always the possibility that the tournament won't finish as expected too. I still think there's a decent chance U7 might lose somehow.
