For the last rule of Damage Protection, we feel its still necessary to allow players the one-hour of protection for those that are repeatedly getting their docks hit with rockets and/or snipers (SFB3). Also, if you attack another players fleets or base, the number of attacks made against you within the past four hours will be reset to zero and remove the bubble from your base (if already under Damage Protection).
so you cant have fvf if your under a bubble thats a bit unfair tbh if you get a 36 hour bubble you will need most of it to repair so basically all you can do is collect salv when your bubbled i think this will add to the problem of people only logging in once a day.

Sounds good enough for me. But I still don't see the need in the 4th rule though.
Just one rocket every 4hrs will keep you out of the game so they only ever have to use one of those 8 attacks every 4hrs. So the rule seems pointless and therefore unneeded.
Alternatively this will never put a final end to buddy bubbles. People will just start to buddy bubble each other by doing 25% damage to the defenses to give them 12hrs DP. But that comes with the problem that they won't be able to give each other bubbles without taking damage.

Wow the whiners are finally getting their way..... Unbelievable.... Don't you think you should wait till the alliance system is implemented before a change like this? We have only been waiting for months for that. I never get bubbled myself and half the time when i'm hit i don't get the 25% to even get that bubble but i feel that the bullys in the game need to be battled some way. They will just be able to keep people out of the game as long as they want this way and that is wrong. With the proposed alliance system at least their friends can try to protect their base and fight off the bullys. In the end i know all that matters is the players that spend lots of money but us light coiners are players too.....

Attacking a FLEET removes a bubble now? So those who have been hit can't help defend another's base? That leaves them nothing to do while repairing but salvage and watch. Granted, it is great against those that hide in a bubble and go hit fleets for no reason, but for someone to have taken enough damage in their base to warrant a bubble, that puts them out of the game.

No FvF battles will not be involved..you will still keep your bubble.

To improve interaction, and avoid non-sporting exploits where some players attack and then immediately hide in buddy bubbles:
1. Eliminate the 10-hit bubble or reduce it to 1 hour (leaving the "damage bubbles" in place).
2. Remove or sharply limit the ability to lock people in their bases by attacking the base and then sitting in a corner doing nothing.
3. Implement a "scaled" ship launch ability if the dock is partially repaired. For example 10% repair, can launch fleets up to 10% of dock weight or something like that to prevent players being locked out of the game for hours at a time if their docks get damaged.

25% needs a bump to 30%. Bases are over powered and 25% really isn't anything with a well built base.

Ok what what about this situation, your under damage protection and still repairing. You go out hunting for blue prints and someone attacks you, do you loose your bubble and leave your base open to an easy attack?

You obviously don't play this game, do you? Ever since the sc became available, and people bought blitz fleets, there is no such thing as a base that can't be gotten into anymore, like there used to be. They come in, and snipe 1 turret on the side, and my first 3 turrets in 3 or 4 attacks, and then, come and blitz my base with 5 sc's and use a large bb to kill one of my du4 turrets. At that point, how can my base compete? The 5 needs to be changed to 3, but instead, now they have 4 hours to prep my base 8 times....stupid!

No, YOU have to be the one that initiates combat. Someone attacking you will not pop the bubble.
