In the macros being discussed, there is no assessment of what the base is like, or how good it is. The program simply deploys the same troops in the same corner / edge spot every time, on every base it attacks. It only succeeds as a strategy because the units it's deploying are many levels above that of the base they are attacking - eg level 7 or 8 attack units attacking a level 4 base.
