As always, Attack Protection time is online time, it will not count down while you are offline.
If players don't want to engage in PvP, they can opt out by not building walls (keeping their timer paused) or by purchasing/acquiring Attack Protection. If you only play a few hours a day, 48hrs Attack Protection can protect you for weeks.
Attack Protection is also one of the possible items you can get in the Daily Reward, claimable in the Market, and you will sometimes find it on Sale (check Today's Sales! in the Market)
but weeks still doesn't help for the future, this just delays thigns for a while. It's inevitable that at some point you WILL be forced to play PvP even if you choose not to like some will. My biggest issue is you don't always have time to do PvP battles you may jsut be logging in to do a few things or build a bit and then go but if during that time you get stuck in a battle your choices are to fight or pay off losing valuable resources.
