What is a Ceasefire, why it appears, when and for what results?
ceasefire means that while active no attacks on other players are allowed. it includes starvation stop for the duration (and a day after iirc). usualy its during celebratory days (christmas to new year, or eastern for instance) so people can spend that time with family without worry that their accounts get screwed/starve while they are away. in this case the icon was wrong iirc and it was "only" the no starvation thingy, attacks were and are still possible. the reason for it to be active was to prevent players from starving due to not being able to login if they didnt immediately accepted the new ToS or something like this
Well I'm being attacked quite a lot during the current ceasefire
