    Not sure if this has been raised or considered (can't see it in the threads).
    My idea is that whenever anybody deploys the City Shield option from the Tavern, each time it successfully repels an attack, this is recorded in the event history.
    Most players will utilise this when they are constantly being raided by one or several players and currently, there is no way of knowing how successful it was and whether the cost was worth it.
    Should be simple enough to implerment.

    Hmm, isn't city shield a mere attack prevention? Or does it eat up offending units?

    Just attack prevention, maybe something like so-so was prevented from attacking in the event history will be nice to have feature. This way the player can figure out if he really needs a shield.

    I thought you couldn't even try to attack somebody with a city shield.

    When the attacker clicks attack icon, game shows pop up message. It's not like attack option is disabled.

    Yep, in this case +1, I'd like to see a message like "PlayerX tried to attack you but was stopped by a city shield" with a shield icon.

    I can click on the swords as often as I want when a city shield is active

    so: yes

    and actually if we are 100% accurate: an attack is never repelled

    because an attack would be if a player clicks attack in the open army management after clicking the swords

    but the city shield already prevents opening the army management with the attack button

    so to be 100% accurate:
    the city shield already prevents to open the attack army management

    and so I don't have a 24 hour waiting time for the next try on the city shield
    (I often aid if the city shield is longer than 24 hours because if I cant attack at least I want my chance of 20 goods for aiding because of my Seed Vault. once I even got 50 diamonds thanks to a city shield of a neighbor. which I never got without his city shield)

    :P

    In this case, the city shield mechanics might be changed to actually let you attack, then generate a defeat. This will make your life even harder if you have a DC without losses active. :)
