Or is it too late, at that point?
What we've been told so far is that when a player initiates an attack against you, you have two options:
- Accept the challenge and bunker down in your fortress, ready to fend off the attacker's advance, or
- Refuse the challenge and pay a resource tribute to your attacker. The amount of the tribute will depend on your level in relation to your attacker: The more challenging the opponent, the lower the tribute required to deny their challenge, and vice-versa.
Logging out with the challenge dialog on the screen would probably start a countdown timer to automatic refusal. If you log back in quickly enough (in the case of say, a disconnection), you may still have time to accept the challenge. If you do not, you will automatically decline and pay tribute to the attacker once it reaches zero.
