Here's how it goes.
In Fenrir, we reported two accounts being sold on a website, accounts changed owners and it was apparent not just from gameplay, but from the fact that the new account owners didn't even speak the same language as previous account owners.
Feel free to check Fenrir CR section and you'll see that pretty much every second-third CR is a push, it may not seem apparent to someone who doesn't play there, but when two players play together, play in same alliance, one player vmodes and comes out of vmode 3 months later and gets crashed by his previous guild mate and friend, it's an obvious push (just one example).
Then one player posts his discord info on the forum saying he wants to trade accounts, we get a screenshot of him offering the account to one of our wing alliance members for 50$, then more people chime in with same screenshot, nothing.
Number one account was sold (one of the accounts that I mentioned before), along with his whole alliance except only one member.
I don't mind a tweak to mechanics here and there, it's a good idea. I wouldn't like new ships I think. What I mean by no changes is how players keep saying on forum how this business model GF turned OGame into is enjoyable for no one but for GF exclusively.
We come to a new universe, invest our time and some money to play and just as it gets interesting uni dies off because yet another one is opening and we're left to wait for a merge to play in an uni that is again, going to die off within 3 months of the merge.
