ClashBot Dead Base Issues and Questions Explained


Why am I not getting as many dead bases with the new ClashBot?
This issue is not because we have a new bot or because the C# bot is not the Autoit bot.  Everyone is experiencing this issue  because Supercell has removed a lot of the super inactive profiles from the matchmaking system. Another reason your bot is not finding as many dead bases is because when Clash of Clans updated, a lot of users started playing again to check out the new update.  This could be to get the new buildings or just because when they updated it they decided to check it out. Either way, right now there are less dead bases and this would be the cause of you not being able to find as much of them. Over time there will be more and more dead bases available due to players quitting again, lack of interest, etc, so just be patient :).

What is ClashBot doing about it?
In the next update users will be able to use an option to “Attack Slightly Dead” bases. Basically, this reduces the criteria and allows for more dead bases to be found. The only downside is these dead bases may not have as much available loot. A good side to this however is that there will be more of these bases than dead bases. These types of bases could be a result of the player not getting on for 2-5 hours, so they are not completely dead. Seeing as there will be more of these types of bases, depending on someones trophy and TH level, you could be receiving more or just about the same amount of loot as you would with dead bases. (Do not worry, with this option checked it will also attack completely dead bases as well).

Dead Base Detection
Many users have been telling us that the dead base detection in the bot is not ‘up to par’ and it skips many dead bases. If you wish to test how good the dead base detection actually is, go to the ‘debug’ tab on your bot and check the box that says ‘screenshot dead bases’. This will screenshot all bases with fulfill your loot requirements (so active bases need to be allowed for this to work). After a screenshot  has been taken it will be named either ‘Active’ or ‘Dead’. These screenshots can be viewed in the debug screenshots folder wherever you extracted the bots files to.

What is a dead base?
A dead base is a base that hasn’t been active by the account owner and all of the gold mines and elixir collectors are nearly full. This is beneficial for us because these mines and drills are typically very easy to get because they are located on the outside.

The way we can tell this is by looking at the elixir collector’s fullness. Look a this image to see all collectors and their respective fullness. elixer from empty to full

If the bot sees that the collector is nearly full and it meets your search requirements, it will attack.

Clash Of Clans Bot Update

Greetings ClashBot community,

As we all know, Supercell updates clash of clans regularly, and implements more content into the game. When these updates are released, certain features of our clash of clans bot will stop working & need to be updated, and some featured may need to be added into into our program to ensure our bot is up to date with clash of clans, and will run as efficiently as possible. Therefore, i am here to inform you how our update process works, and how we aim to stay up to date with all of Supercell’s actions.

Why is the bot going to malfunction when Supercell releases an update?
Every time clash of clans adds in-game content, we also need to add an update in order to make sure our program is cooperative with the new version of Clash Of Clans. If Supercell adds in-game content, and we don’t update our software, our program will become out of date, and will not be able to handle the new features that Supercell has added into Clash Of Clans.

How is ClashBot going to handle each new update & how long will the update take?
When we receive word that Supercell is planning on releasing new content into the game, we research as to what this content will be so that we can plan ahead and get a feel for what we will need to code into our program. After the update is released, we will go to work straight away in effort to make sure our program  will be updated as soon as possible, and before any other competitor site that may chose to run against us. Once we have finished updating our program, a new topic will be made regarding the new release, and it will also contain a download link to the latest version, which will be compatible with Super cell’s latest update. Furthermore, Within the days leading up to the new update Supercell is going to be releasing, we will notify our users of any downtime by posting an announcement, and you can follow the discussion from there. When we update ClashBot, it usually takes no  more than 48 Hours, however, if we feel we may need more time to perform the update, all VIP’s will have an extension added on to their subscription, as a form of compensation for our downtime.

When is the next Clash Of Clans update?
The next update for Clash Of Clans is due to be release this upcoming week, and will implement a variety of in-game content, so of course, ClashBot will need to update. The following content is set to be released.

We are currently in preparation for these new updates, and will strive to update our bot as quickly as possibly, so that you’re not missing out on precious botting time. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask them on our official announcement thread, which is coming soon. We thank you for sticking with us through these times, and we value your cooperation.
