Corwin: yeah, it's impossible from a single datafile. If you build up a history from the files correlating the cities with the same coordinates over time, you can track down captures, except for the cities that a player exodused shortly after capture (before the next town file update).

I've got the datafiles going back over a year so in theory I could work out things like changes of ownership during that period but it's a lot of work.

Would it be possible for the devs to find that information back to tge beginning of the server? The title legendary city seems more fitting for a town that exists for 7 years and has changed owner several times then a prestige build town that's only 3 months old. It' also interesting to know who's controlling the towns of the players who long left the game.

Possibly but that is something you'd have to take up with them. Personally I don't think they'd be willing to devote the time/effort required but it also depends on how the data is structured on their server if the still have that info.

Kumo is player id number 10.  I never heard of the people before him except the devs are the first few.

Sarky is the only one ahead of Kumo that still has towns and he is player Id 3. Which means he is the first actual player besides the Devs
