Newbie Protection for NPCs?
« on: February 06, 2014, 06:16:33 PM »
I've noticed that newbie protection appears to be back in play.  Is this intentional?  Is this going to remain in effect?  Is this part of a phase-in of a larger change to the NPC system?

Newbie protection for NPCs is not 'in play'. It is a visual oddity as a result of the attack restriction in place.

Attack and espionage links for territories and NPC are not clickable, and when trying to attack from the fleets page I get a message "You cannot Attack that planet."

All attacks are disabled for 24 hours, so that makes sense.

This is the in game message regarding attacks

Due to the server outage we've set a 24 hour neutrality period for attacks between players that is set to expire February 7, 2014 at 16:00UTC.


It clearly states "between players"

So why no NPC attacks?
