It can be frustrating but we have had to adapt. When that update was first implemented I created a post to fight it and restore the old way but it was unfortunately denied. I have adapted to it now though and before building anything else I will build my first 3 structures.
Yeah you just have to get used to it, people wouldnt build structures in the past and spam bomb people. Its always those people who decide to break common sense rules who make the game a little fun for the rest of us. >.<
