Players should be allowed to sell their fleets to other players instead of scraping them

Players should be allowed to sell their fleets to other players at a price determined by Kixeye or at a higher price agreed to by both players. Since the transaction would have to go through kixeye, they should get 25% of the selling price and then credit the seller gold with the other 75%.  In my opinion, this would be good for kixeye and the smaller players. The smaller players would be able to gain better fleets faster and kixeye would benefit from the sell and the update done to the fleets by the buyer. 

Let me know if I am out in left field please!!

    Maybe even leasing a fleet to a fellow Alliance member.

    You cant sell ships, because they are the property from KIXEYE. You own nothing.
    You only have the permit to play with the pixels from KIXEYE.
    You only pay to get things faster...you are paying for TIME.

    So that idea is against the TOS.

    Time to read the comment again -  It says kixeye will determine the price and they take 25% of the price. Nothing can be done without kixeye permission. IF you don't think I can sell my base, you would be sadly mistaken. A person could buy it and I let them run the game from my log in. I wouldn't do that, but it can be done.

    You remind me on the "supersmart" guys, which we had during the "glitchrepair" era.
    They did also think outside of the box:" That glitch is part from the game, so it must be allowed to use it...!"

    If you "buy" a account from an other player, you are on the top list for the banhammer.
    It isnt allowed to share a player account with other players, smart boy.
