Any macro users who consider their use legit, post your account name under my quote. There is no need to hide behind a poll.
Well... We are living in a wonderful world... 35 years ago we played Atari with joysticks with 1 button. Now we have programs that play for us complex game of strategy while we are working or sleeping... One year ago, I learned about Auto-Clickers to keep your base online and you can't be attacked. This week I learned about Bots, Macros or whatever they call that crap...
Using one or another is cheat, doesn't matter for what purposes they are, and collect resources my ass. If you are not playing the game for your own, you are cheating. If you are asking for friends to play with your account in conflicts to have more victories while you are off, you are cheating too.
I agree with the comment about the "Save/Load SWC Base Layout" and the "SWC Defensive Log Tracker". Everything created to give you some advantage in the game over normal players is cheating. I never used them and I won't use. I have a base that works great for defenses in PvP and HDs without change anything in the layout, only some items in the Armory. And I don't need to know each 5min if my base was attacked. I'm attacked rarely, so I really don't care about my defenses, but using Bots/Macros is a shame.
Who agrees and say here that are using them not only is proving his dishonesty but his own incompetence to get a reward that you can earn just playing fair. I'm in UC on Tatooine with only 37 attacks/15,900 pts (1820) while the player in the 2nd place has 600 attacks/101,000 pts! I'm getting the same 32 frags for IAs. So why to use Bots/Macros if you can get the reward with just a few attacks? Only to have your name at the top of the leaderboard?
Wonderful and weird world we are living now...
