Protection is a very important element of Backyard Monsters, giving players strategic advantages over their opponents. In this article you will learn everything about the different types of protection you can get in the game. But let’s start by answering a common question: what does the Backyards’ Monsters protection mean?

Well, it’s quite simple: while under protection, a player can’t be attacked by other players (but wild monsters can attack the player!). Protection can also be lost before its deadline if you attack another player. Now let’s see the different types of protection in Backyard Monsters!

1. Starter Protection

This is the protection period everybody receives when they start the game. It lasts for 14 days and it would be really wise to use it to build up your base, stack up some resources and train your army.

2. Damage Protection

This type of protection is activated automatically when your base suffers too much damage. If your buildings are destroyed or damaged to a total of 30-60%, then you get 12 hours of protection to rebuild your base. If the percentage is greater, you get 24 extra hours of protection time. You will also get a one hour protection time if your base has been attacked four times within an hour.

3. +24 Hours Protection

This can be only purchased from the Shop and it costs 25 Shiny. However, use it with care since you can only buy one every 5 days!

4. Holiday Protection

If you decide to go on holiday, this is the protection you’ll need – it lasts 7 days and can only be purchased every 14 days for 200 shiny. But at least you won’t suffer any heavy losses!
