Well, I care, but I had already come to the same conclusion myself, but it is nice to have detailed data. I do have a smidge of defense from the Pond of Fall, but that's because it is pretty and I like seeing it in my city. I do deploy the ultimate defense though: Collect On Time!

I enjoy reading this thread and seeing the different play styles. While I’m in the “can never have too much defense” camp I like learning about other city styles.

finally get to posting my final numbers.
recorded a solid 6 months of data from multiple game worlds. sampling various ages/hood positions/play styles.
all with 0% defense of 8 current age troops .

*important to note that hood position has strong impact on attack / plunder numbers. i tried to keep the sample balanced with various hood positions to get a reasonably accurate overall picture.

183 weeks of 6 day event history. [1098 days. 3+ years]
average hood position 34.5 of 73.2 (47.2%)
79290 possible attacks.
769 attacks
409 retreat
360 breaches
183 plunders.

90.1%-100% in hood - 12 weeks. 177 attacks [14.75 attacks per 6 day week]


in 3 worlds i left valuable buildings uncollected for the entire sample period. so if any attacker breached my 0% defense they would always have something to plunder.
in 78 weeks of data from those 3 worlds, i had 202 breaches and 134 plunders.
meaning 33.66% of the time people did not plunder when they had easy opportunities right after their breach.


plunders per week from 183 weeks of data:
weeks with 8 plunders: 2
...7 plunders : 3
...6 plunders : 2
...5 plunders : 3
...4 plunders : 6
...3 plunders : 8
...2 plunders : 16
...1 plunder : 39
...0 plunder : 104
That's great work. Thank you very much for all the work you done. I love statistics and those up rock.

I loved mostly the number of attacks based on your hood place. My experience was the same, but it is nice to see it as statistics that prove that point.

Top hood in Z world can be rough for bottom half but people have over 400% defense and it doesn't deter me in the least. I also have troops from 2 eras ahead so moving up isn't going to work either.
190-1182 defense = Free city shield
I stopped wasting space on defense a good while ago and haven't regretted it. Still fill in space with flames and watchfires where appropriate but no problems deleting them to move things around or add a SoK. One person in my hood has 800%+. I'm gonna break it sometime, CDM at 21 and moving up :)
