Destruction of your city?
It is my understanding that a player cannot be completely wiped out. I hope this is not the case as I rather enjoy the challenge of keeping my kingdom/empire together...The chance of being completely annihilated gives the game an edge. Kingdoms rise and fall in real life...why not have that mimicked in this game?
At the very least I hope the devs adopted a system similar to that of tribal wars---where you start anew in some far off land away from the person(s) who destroyed you?
I've searched the FAQ and see no concrete answers on this issue other than some resources can be plundered and some city buildings can be destroyed.
