With EAs payout changes, should we defend houses at all now?

The one major flaw is that in a very short time, there won't be any attackable houses left because it takes too long to fully destroy them since most people attack with just one nerd. I already have several neighbors who rarely have anything to attack in their towns because they're letting their houses collapse (and they don't have house farms). It might be good for them and their other attackers, but it's not so good for me.

ITMT, yes, I've taken houses out of storage or bought new ones... I'm sitting on millions, so what the heck. I like white houses because they fit on deleted roads. I'm a "temporary house farmer" for this event.
Maybe it'll work, maybe it won't.
To be clear, I am not saying Boo-urns.
Comparing my gold count to my 60 neighbors, I'm doing pretty well. Only the forum regulars are beating me and i know these people are playing the every 2 hour method, i am doing about a 4-8-12.
I didn't think i was earning much but seeing the comparison I'm pretty high in rank so I'll stick with the defensive plan.
If I remember correct from my historylessons there was a number of houses inside the outer castlewalls. So brown housefarming here I come. The brown color would fit more with the period of pillaging(just an fix idea).
I have a small housefarm now just to do this and it is enough. Dont have to go overboard.
Make sure your strategy takes into account random attacks. You could be accidentally shouting out good neighbors unless your house farm is truly vast. Several of my neighbors are leaving their towns undefended and most days will have nothing left to tap.
When I do find a tappable house in an undefended town, I throw multiple nerds at it so it will clear faster for someone else to attack.
I will always have the last word. :twisted:
If I remember correctly, during the Stonecutter event, you earned Emblems mostly by people visiting you. While you did your visiting it did that stupid thing FPs do where the ones you earned dropped precipitously, and you did a lot of visiting mainly to get people to visit you back. I think that's the idea here. Yeah, you get a little bit from your nerds wrecking stuff, but your neighbors reciprocating is where the bacon really meets the road. (I'm pretty sure that's not what I meant to say, but you get it, right?)
