    Given that the server is to be reset soon, I decided to go all out with building hoplites for an attack, to try and learn more about the game.
    Unfortunately I cannot attack anyone on my island, I just get a message that says "This player is still under beginner protection". I have two questions:
    How long does beginner protection last (is it time or points based)?
    How do other players have battle points in the ranking list, if it is impossible to attack each other yet?

    To your second question: I'm guessing that the units you kill when a farming village resists count towards you battle points.

    No, they don't. Also you can see people are listed in best attackers and best defenders in the rankings, so you can tell that the attacks were people with lots of points hitting people with very few points. I'm guessing that beginner protection was not implemented at first, but that was a mistake, and it has been implemented now.

    Apparently some people were able to attack yesterday, but can't today...

    I'd agree a week is a bit much...

    2-3 days would be much better...

    I would have been happy with 24 hours... but I realize not everyone has that much time to spend building up, even if they do start on the weekend...

    I had a friend sign up and he's already doing quite well after 24 hours also, and he works 60 hours a week, plus a long commute...

    But a week is waitable...

    It's not like this server won't get reset, but I wish they would change the sub-domain and continue it...

    There is NO reason to reset it just because it becomes S1.grepolis.net....

    To all of those who spent for gold, it would be highly unfair to them as much as to the freebies... (I know better than to risk spending on a server that MAY be reset)

    The game is fun to play either way.

    Though it's less challenging if buying "gold."

    Back to the reset topic for me....

    Good luck everyone,
    WGS

    Personally I think there should simply be no beginners protection during a beta phase.

    It reduces the effectiveness of testing out features imo.

    The beta server need to be same as a normal server.
