It is more friendly to the working folks I find. Instead of being CS'd while you sleep or work you come back to find you have 12 hours to stack against or snipe an incoming CS(s).
Just one caveat to sniping, players with experience will send more than one CS and hid them in clearing waves in-case you do try to snipe. Once RED phase starts any cs that lands will make your city go *poof.* Yes, even if you have to be the guy to post in your alliance forum that you lost a city to the cS that had 500 swords.
