And then you handed the account to someone who's only goal is to ruin the game.  There were good players willing to pay for it, but you sold it to a hack.  He has already driven it to 3rd, and one day, he will have trouble staying in the top 100.

That's where you would be incorrect.  Zx was playing the game long before you came on the scene.  He's one of the original players that first started the game, and knows how to stalk and hunt a player.  If you mean destroying the game by turning it back into a war game from farmville in space, then yes,  that could happen.  The game was never intended to be farmville but with the NPC's that's what it has become, one big game of farmville.

You know even though I am in dmode doing a ship build it is exciting to see players ducking and dodging the big BAD Empire pack

Hardly ducking.  Fleetsaving, but I still run attacks 24/7/365.  I was playing this game before they expanded the number of galaxies, to give you and idea of my longevity.  I remember every change they made, and was against every one because it changed it, but I adapted.  If Zx was that good, than he would have been able to hit more than a small bit of fodder, but he hasn't been able to do that.  His skill set is lazy, just as he is.  Anyone who has to buy rank is lazy.

A number of large accounts have changed hands during the past few months:

Silent Bob -> Zx -> J.T. Kirk

WGW -> John Fury

(Rich) Shinzon -> (Don Woods) Shinzon

And several more.  The common result of each of these moves is that the acquirer has not been able to hold rank.

It takes a certain set of skills, interests, and personal characteristics to gain and hold rank at the top.  If you are interested in acquiring the account of a retiring major player, with the intention of advancing it, feel free to reach out to guys like Bruce Mays, Treakle, Steve Carlston, and me.  We'll be glad to talk with you about what it took for us to get to the top.  The hope is that this information will help you determine if you are suited to a major account.  Some people are, some aren't.  There is nothing wrong with not being the type of player who can keep a top account moving forward.  It takes a LOT of hard work, and it doesn't fit everyone's play objectives.

I am not sure, but it might be doing ship builds that are past the max the game will allow.

I found out the hard way, with a large build, and the builds continued, but actual fleet number stayed the same.  So my ships beyond the game max, are phantoms.  I got credit for the cost of building, but don't have that fleet.

Had I moved what was built to the moon, the others would have been added to my overall fleet.  If I were to combine them again, the number of ships would drop to the game (per location) max.

Treacle i do not know how you can call anyone. The only thing i seen you do in game is try bully a small rank saying they leave the df for you or you will hit the heph. Or several times i seen you get hit in pvp action. Now you got a chance to repair your tattered game reputation and hit the guy back for blitzing you. That is if you are capable. Big difference between i run attacks 24/7 on a stupid green thing that sits there for 10 hours till your zeus hit it and attacking a live player that can blitz you. Try it treacle its a whole new game and you might end up enjoying it and doing more. My admiration goes out to the guy that took your ships out with ease and no comeback. You are a bad sport crying someone bought the account and hit me with it. After all you was buying resources of others for a long time which also makes you a hypocrite. Stop crying and attack him back you big girls blouse. Zx is a good player and he can also be hit. Me and him had some good action once when the game was fun.
