Godly protection (also referred to as New player protection) provides protection for new players, often referred to as newbies, from higher level players, so that their town cannot be pillaged, occupied or blockaded until one of the following occurs:
- The player expands their Town hall to Level 5. (Level 7 if your Ikariam Plus is activated)
- The player has sent troops/ships out for the first time to attack another player.
- The player founds their first colony. (Arrival of the ships)
- The player becomes inactive.
