Is there a world where beginners actually have time to build up their city before being conquered? I just started the game about a week ago and I've been spending that time building up my city (which is about 1200 points). As soon as the beginner's protection wore off I was inundated with attacks and now I've lost my city and have to start over. Why bother if it's going to happen again? I know there will be comments saying "well, stop bitching and just join an alliance". I tried but being so low in points no decent alliance would take me. And the alliance I am in wasn't helping (I'm not sure they could) and now I'm back at square zero. So, is there a world where the protection lasts longer? Or where small cities that beginners have just started building up are left alone? Because I just don't see a point in spending any more time (and certainly not spending any money) on this game if not.
