Ok just my opinion...=)
If you want protectorate it is same as joining in a aliance/clan/guild... or...
if are in different aliances or anything else.... you can always have a deal with others.... each time he defends your base you can give him tribute.
This deal between players, not a obligatory protectorate, is better cuz he wont be always online... it is possible he wont be online always to send soldiers to you before you will be attacked than you are giving him a tribute for no reason + he may fail if one from his alliance attack you.
So i guess no need for protectorate... you can have a deal by yourelf and x person(s).
(i dont remember right but at travian there are deals that players do between each other and nt with protectorate and it is doing fine.... there unbalance .. here with the numbers of attackers/defenders would do good i guess)
