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