Two different approaches are considered: The first one extends the proposal by (Dunne et al. 2011) and accounts for other aggregation functions than sum in the objective of relaxing attacks. The second one shows how weights can be exploited to strengthen the usual notion of defence, leading to new concepts of extensions.
