Hey all,

 

I don't understand this... I bought some fuel to buy some protection to get a little peace time. It's now run out so I went to buy more but find there is a timer counting down that blocks me from buying more protection. All it reads is "Cooling Off Period" and displays a digital clock counting down to [I guess when I can buy protection again].

 

What's this about and why is it there? I now have no protection displayed on my screen. Can I be attacked? This has me baffled.

Why am I being blocked from adding additional protection time to my compound?

Thanks,

Rowdy

There is a cool-down if you looked at the protection in the shop.

Sorry I couldn't get to ya sooner, but Jackie Chan told me this example:

 If you buy 7 days of protection, you have a 21 day cool down.

 If you buy the max protection, it's only multiplied by 2.

It's there to avoid the exploitation of buying protection immediately after it expires. The other exploitation is when raiding someone and buying protection or using the white flag after you finish the raid. And yes, you can still be attacked if you have the cooldown timer.

This all makes sense, especially using the protection as an exploit.

There's always one in every barrel who'll exploit something to heighten their ego.

 

Thanks for the answers folks.

Good luck out there and happy Zombie hunting!
