Scroll few posts up, there’s a screenshot. Raid Shields defying the purpose of a leaderboard
So basically, you can be locked however long you want, let’s say 12 days. Then it expires, so you can’t be shielded for 12 days from that moment on.
Another thing, let’s say you buy for 7 days - and then raid 3rd day. I read this as - cooldown is now 3 days and your protection gone forever.
However, it can be also that your 4 unused days are saved and when you are permitted for next protection, it may automatically continue or it can be activated manually or with buying new shield,
That par is not clear.
Also, if you buy a lot of them, like several months worth, then your trophies are saved. And when it expires, for the same months you can’t protect again.
In short - whales can be untouchable indefinitely, so I think they will put some restriction for maximum allowed time at once. @Petri can you clarify this maybe even now?
Also, will this player be attackable or completely removed from matching but shown on leaderboard?
Maybe shields that protect you from falling out of current arena would be better solution?
Or removing them from leaderboard completely, but use this saving as when they return that they can continue where they left off.
