Yes, in my case it amounts to bullying. Still get hammered daily by 10 or more with attacks coming minutes apart by most, same with plunders. I have no way to defend myself, replay of the attacks show I may get 1 or 2 ticks off of one unit. This has been going on for several months now. I have found a way to protect myself as far as goods though. I have been rotating collection times to times I can be there. They only get me once or twice a week now. I'm happy, I can finally advance my city again. This does not happen at all in any other worlds I play, very strange.
