Wow, you're an idiot.
That strategy is only possible on Alpha with its misplaced and inept sense of civility:
Player 1 attacks Player 2's base, pillaging it and taking the derbs generated. While occupying Player 2, due to Alpha's unwritten rules, Player 1 keeps Player 2's trade routes intact (except for Player 2's self-trades and trades between fellow guild members, those are fair game). This allows any pirate to swoop in with a scout ship and eat the TRs for amazing profit for no work.
Due to this being a violation of Alpha major powers' unwritten rules agreement, the player eating the trades becomes KOS to all, and said powers would normally perma-farm that player off the server. If that player remains under level protection, there is absolutely nothing said powers can do about it, except try to get a sub-level 40 guildmate to try to attack that player. If the violating player has multiple layers of planetary rings and shields in place on their bases, very few sub-level 40s would be willing to smash their entire mobiles just to take 1 base...
As I said before, this strategy only works on Alpha and nowhere else, because no one on any other server is stupid enough to play with one hand tied behind their back by denying themselves profit that is rightfully theirs. People on other servers will even drop guild after a base hit just so they can eat trade routes going to their own guildmates, and then immediately rejoin the guild afterwards.
