I have never - ever - suggested to people to be part of a larger fleet - look way back in my posting history - you will see a dozen threads about the problems starting in June - before the launch of S6 "Starbases - the beginning of the END"

In there I stated something that i knew would happen in large fleets - even more drama - and dissatified players - who are in effect just building a king his personal "space castle"

There was no "flaw" the system was designed to take a long time for the Avg size fleet and very long OR NEVER for a very small fleet.

This last part is something that you don't seem to understand - they were NOT designed for small fleets - Period - there is no "flaw"

The Officer daily was infact an "exploit" to get around this design - you have got it backwards.
