Definition / Prohibition:
Pushing means to send resources to another account without evidence of an immediate return of resources. This is only allowed when the account being "pushed" has a lesser total game score than the account sending the resources. Pushing does not only cover the simple sending of resources, but it has a few EXAMPLES that are also considered:
- intentional accumulation of resources in one (or more) building(s) for later retrieval by another account using (multiple) attacks;
- additional means and possibilities where one account gets resources without sending back some.
