New Player Protection will be set on all newly installed players for 1 week since installing the game. During this period, attacks received and against enemy players will be limited by your xp attack range. This means you can only attack and be attacked by players near your level. For Punches and Hitlists, enemy players must be either less then 2 times your level or greater then half your level. Players under new player protection will have the freedom to explore and learn the game with similar experienced players. They will not have to worry about getting into unknown features or interactions which could result in taking a beating from more advanced players. Anyone under protection will have the opportunity to opt out if they are familiar with the game before the protection period ends. A time based approach will give all new players the opportunity to level up at their pace without the use of strict level thresholds which won't scale for each player or be manipulated by other players.
