A few different fleets I know say that their fleets have completely disappeared. Anybody having these issues?

Not much of that in our group. Some left early on for fleets that were further along with the starbase system, but many of them returned to our ranks. We did not get the customary influx of returning players that a season update normally sees, but I attribute that to the rather cold reception of much of the community to season 7.
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.

No, I mean like... 4 fleets I know members of say their fleets just disappeared tonight. Like... all of it. Not like their members leaving or logging off, like the fleet completely disappeared.

Then my doomsday device works! Seriously though, I hadn't heard of that one yet. I will keep an eye out for the total destruction of my fleet at random. If this can be confirmed, that really sucks. I hope they weren't far along on their starbase before that happened.

Have your friends tried to contact the other fleet members?

I have never hoped harder that someone was having a public joke. Are there any details you can share? Anything you can remember prior to this happening may help others avoid it.

That is indeed ackward. I know that recently since the game has gone F2P, there has been an influx of account hacking, Gold Selling, and the old but not new "Bank Jacking." It may well be that these Fleets you are referring to have been hijacked by someone in their own roster.

Technically the Fleet is still there, it has NOT disappeared, if not so, this forum would have been on fire like the City of Rome.

It is highly possible they fell victim to a hostile take over and all members have been excommunicated from the Fleet roster.

This is not the first time a hostile take over has happened.

CRYPTIC should impliment a system in which the creator of a fleet gets an automatic mail when a fellow co-leader tries to demote the original leader in an attempt at a hostile take over.

or

The original leader should be allowed to have a personal password to remain as co-leader, just in case there is an attempt at a hostile take over - of course the 30 day inactivity policy should remain in effect for an instant demotion.

Besides, many Fleets have now a democratic leadership where two or more players run the Fleet - I really think CRYPTIC should try to place a failsafe system of some type.

Giving the actual Founder or player that first created the Fleet to bypass any hostile take overs.
