If real crystal were used, then not otherwise anyone got any proof that this is possible without alteration of code feel free to tell me how (remember bots only).
where do you draw the line ?
And it's not just me, it is CLEARLY DOCUMENTED in Disney user agreement that you can not use any automation to play the game. (your can check out the agreement at http://www.disneytermsofuse.com.com)
Use whatever the game provides to play the game. That's fair. That's competing on equal basis. Using automation to play the game put the player at a significant advantage (if not, then why use it anyway), and that's unfair for those who can't use them (on iOS).
The world is an unfair place, using crystals also gives players advantages as well.
Anyways, when I used to use them (haven't used since the windows version were stopped) I used them at my own risk and so did my friends, it's the same as drinking wine or gambling.
I, nor my friends thought it cheating that we used simple clicking machines to train troops / collect resources (the last macro is irrelevant now since at HQ10 you get the new droid for that). It was just to make our lives easier.
I played the game (and still play) soley for fun and entertainment, and I saw problems with it :
- you can't upgrade multiple walls without using gems (a pain in the rear). So I created a simple script to do just that. (It would speed upgrade, simple macro and a loop).
- train troops is repitative, macro already told
- resource collector (it took Disney 4yrs)
These are simple luxuries and they were meant to make player's life easier. We created our own and used them.
It's that simple. None of these ever harmed anyone else in anyway, it just made it easier for us to play.
You don't need an AC to live, but it makes life easier if you live in a desert. what do you think ?
These endavors among others, were us learning (I used to suck at chess as a child, so I created an AI to beat the chess game at hard and in doing so actually learnt how to play chess)
I see a ton of members complaining on no macros or whatever, I disagree and if Disney disagrees they can delete my account (or all 8 for that matter), but as you can see I am still here 4yrs later macros, even used some for attacking (horrible idea, didn't win a single one. it was a test).
Have you never used a mod for GTA, well guess what it is way ahead of what a simple macro and according to their policy not allowed, yet millions of mods exist and they actually even support these.
If Disney releases a statement saying players will be banned for using macros to collect resources/train troops/upgrade walls etc..we'll see, so far they have not done anything against us.
