..by the code of Honor to attack this Archon. This mighty warrior has been granted protection".


May I ask then, why and how can two of my members be attacked and this player still has protection?


I was on the game when the report came in and went directly to the attacker's city, saw the shields marking his city as protected and was confused. I thought if this person attacked, he would lose that protection.


Can anyone give some information on this?


Thanks in advance.

According to the SWOE Guide (FAQ: When can I attack other cities) ...


I'm not sure I'm comfortable with that arrangement either, I'd have to think about it (and it hurts), but that's another issue (which I'm sure will be discussed here :-).

I have just asked one of my members about this and they did not initiate the attack. The other member is a "Long Ago".

 Seems like something is a bit skewed then isn't it?

So, if I read this correctly-the player comes back to the game and has protection-he then initiates an attack and the member(s) do not strike back because he has protection? My feeling is that the "protection shields" should fall then. 

He is using the "honor" system against players by being dishonorable then. 

Also, it is my feeling that, once under protection, if the player with protection attacks-that player should lose protection, which is not happening.


Thanks for your response  Irate Penguin.

I suppose we have to differentiate:

  1. the current rule is as you have understood it -  returning players may initiate attacks without fearing repercussions (at least until his or her protection runs out) while ...

  2. ... new players will default this protection if they engage an established player:

Source: SWOE Guide (FAQ: When can I attack other cities)


But reading this carefully, it also states that the returning player is indeed subject to repercussions from any player he or she might have attacked while under protection, but not from third parties. Therefore, the significant difference is:

  • A new player loses his or her protection against any adversary if he or she attacks an established player, while ...
  • A returning player loses his or her protection only against the attacked player if he or she attacks another player.
So, in essence, IMO it means:

  • .. if you*re new, don't attack unless you're prepared to take the heat, and ...
  • ... if you're returning, attack only those you are willing to take the heat from.

As I said previously, I'm not at all sure I'm comfortable with this (and any further input would be welcome), but iit currently is the law of the land :-)
