So there is a suspicious little account near me that decided to start about 4 days ago then settled second villa not on a cropper, but on a non-cropper villa which is coincidentally fairly close to where an artifact may spawn. He is still under BP because it extended even beyond the arti release time.
Problem is, he can develop at his heart's content now all the way up til he needs to send hero, and can even send attack on a natar under BP
This, to me, is an exploit. TG needs to either make the natars not attackable under BP
Make you exit BP if you settled 2nd villa out of BP.
Cut off registration long before artifacts.
Seriously, com1 is full of dirty little shenanigans.
