and how would this ruin the game for most of the playerbase?... Whats runing the playerbase is aways sitting on the fleet half the time you are playing for the game, and having the game be so predictible. The fleet is boring, was one of the biggest mistakes of this game, I really hope it goes, and the put the "Fleets" (or what they offer) on each factions captial worlds like they were in beta, that was awesome.
I agree the fleets were a bad idea. They really did water this game down with the fleets and the removal of the ability to lose companions.
