I just started this new game a few weeks back. The alliance I belong to apparently started a war with another alliance long before my time.

 

Daily for the last 5 days, the same person trashes my entire compound, waits until the protection goes off & attacks everything all over again.

 

This has been going on for 5 straight days in a row & in the attack reports, it shows this person's number of attacks. It's the same woman each time.

 

How do I stop it?

 

When I told her to please stop since their beef it with the alliance leaders & not a new lowbie, I was told to "F off & get use to it". Needless to say, this person & their alliance doesn't care.

 

This is bullying - not crying. This borders on harassement - not whining.

Don't join alliances that has started wars with another alliance if you can't handle the heat.

Your leader declared war on us first. Don't want to get shredded? Tell your leader to surrender and not run his mouth next time.

Like others have said don't join alliances that are in a war with another alliance if you cannot take getting trashed.

 

After all it is an alliance war.

 

With that being said there's a few options you can do.

 

1. Buy a whiteflag if you don't want to get raided but stay in the same alliance.

2. Leave and find an alliance that isn't in a smashwar with another.

 

Otherwise you're stuck with things how they are pretty much.

This.

 

If you don't want to be raided don't join alliances or equip the white flag.   Of course just because you're not in an alliance doesn't mean you'll never be raided -- it just makes it a lot less likely (unless someone has a personal beef with you).

 

If someone is "bullying" you your options are:

 

1) Equip White Flag

 

2) Buy protection (I wouldn't recommend this option at all, but if you're desperate...)

 

3) Leave your alliance (and hope the attacks stop)

 

4) Do nothing and only run auto missions for awhile.   If you do that, the player raiding you will quickly out-level you, and won't be able to attack you anymore.  Players can't attack other players lower level than they are (unless both players are in an alliance and a war round is active).   Regardless once a player is more than 5 levels higher than you they won't be able to attack you under any circumstances.

 

5) Do nothing and just suck it up and hope the other player gets bored/quits.

 

6) Quit game.

 

 

Balls in your court....

Someone's doing it too with my F.U.E.L, I destroyed his compound after his first attack and he retaliate after it, I retaliate it and destroy it even more and now we keep raiding each other because we both want the last raid. I hope I can out run his level faster so he won't be able to raid me again.

This time I put a big bounty of 40 fuel on him so maybe he can stop this time. He's been harrassing me since 2-3 weeks!

Putting a bounty on the player attacking you is probably the least effective thing you can do.  Some players actually take pride in the bounties placed on them, and look to see how they're ranked in the "most notorious" list.   

 

In other words, in many cases you're actually encouraging the behavior you want to stop.  

 

Add in how easy it is to slough off a bounty without much/any penalty (place your leader defenseless outside the compound and have a friend attack you, and yeah you get the broken bounty system.

 

Why I tell players never to use it -- it's a waste of fuel.

edit to add:

 

I hope I can out run his level faster so he won't be able to raid me again.

 

That's not how it works.   He needs to outlevel you -- not the other way around.  If he is one (no alliance) to five (both in alliance and war active) then he can't attack you.

 

Lastly if you continue to hit them back, the other player is well within the mechanics of the game to keep hitting you back.

if I understand correctly, you were raided first; he did not thrash you (that is, he did not destroyed everything in your compound, just for the sake of destroying it), but he did take your fuel. And you retaliated and thrashed him as a vengeance. And you both keep going.

 

If that's the case, it doesn't sound like "bullying" to me, but more like a regular dispute.

Kind of.

 

Anyway, the bounty has been collected and what I saw from the guy's compound is only a watchtower destroyed.

Plus, I did not trash him on my first retaliate, that's after he retaliated that I trashed him because he trashed me when he retaliated me and I felt like if he did not understood the lesson. Not only did I trash his compound but also I destroyed his "nest" inside the house, (which he did not understood yet that doing a nest is easy to raid with a few grenades).

We kept raiding each other, again and again and again with me still destroying his nests that he rework everytime. What he does is not only trashing my compound but also rushing for my fuel...and no one likes to see their fuel stolen after waiting for 3 days.

 

Since I put a bounty of 40 fuel on him, I stopped raiding him because I had enough. I just hope he won't restart again or I would bombard his nest again.
