    You're thinking about modding which is different than botting is in a lot of regards.

    Sent you a PM with more detail. As a software developer I was interested to see what it was they were doing. It appears the bots work based on some sort of pattern recognition. The bot itself runs on a PC that then runs an emulated instance of Android. Supercell, could possibly detect that COC is running on an emulator, but that alone is not against TOS, I don't believe. Therefore banning based on that would be problematic it best. I personally use emulators occasionally to play on a big screen.

    My guess is the engineers at SC have downloaded and installed all these bots - or at least the most popular ones and logged the behavior of each one. Conceivably there could be some sort of signature that's distinct across use of each bot that's very rare outside the use of that bot. You then look for accounts repeatedly displaying that pattern of behavior.

    I know the difference, but I was under the impression that SC cracked down on bots, as well. A long time ago.

    Great job sc. Ban them.

    The warning is a bit weird though. I guess it will cause less complaints and less headaches. While it is not the best to get all the botters, it gives sc an extra I told you so if people try to argue.

    While botters did not break core game mechanics, they did hurt the game. The people who next for hours looking for good loot dont want it to be stolen by someone who pressed go on a program.

    They banned bots/mods thst manipulated the game files. I assume this ban will be for the ones running on emulators.

    What date will the "several week" grace period end... I need to know when to stop boting.

    Exact date please...🙄

    Also will this mean more dead bases to raid?
    I'm guessing yes 😁

    Won't matter one ounce. When they banned the modders after warnings the tears shed in here the following weeks could have filled the ocean.

    Looking forward to it again.

    I mean, I hope they tell us if they are banning emulators outright. They aren't supported, but previously haven't been illegal to use.

    If I were a botter, I would heed the in game warning and stop botting immediately and hope the bot app I use or used didn't modify Supercell's game files. If I "use or take part (directly or indirectly) in the use of cheats, exploits, automation software, bots, hacks, mods or any unauthorized third-party software designed to modify or interfere with the Service, any Supercell game or any Supercell game experience...," I must expect the Psychic Octopus to respond vigorously and hunt me down sooner than later. https://supercell.com/en/terms-of-service/,

    But I'm not a botter so I don't need to lose sleep and worry about Supercell sending me to banned camp.

    What the hell?

    Thank you so much sweet Supercell.
