Losing 200 henchmen-defended territories to bots

Post  Walt Johnston on Thu 11 Sep 2014 - 4:10

Is this SUPPOSED to happen? I've lost 5 back home now in the last month, and I won't be there again till next year to reclaim them. Doesn't seem right. I read somewhere that bots only attack if defense is less than 40 or 60 or something like that. Sure back home is inactive, but I'm still very active in the game here in Shanghai.

Perhaps actual players put them below 40 defence and bots finished them off?

Honestly I'm not sure. They should attack over 40 defence.

In this case, I doubt it since I found out early on that I was the ONLY player in my town. Once I discovered what a "bot" was, I checked every little dot & territory in town (it's not a big town), and found no players. Only me and the bots.

The bots attack maxed out defense too. Now they can attack anything, even the squares with 200 defense. I've tried it myself.
I don't think it's supposed to happen, because Nicorr said the bots can only attack squared with 40 and under..

The problem is they attack maxed out territories AND WIN. The two that were taken when I was still home were both 200. After they were taken, I spied on them and took the territory with that spy. At that point, it left me with NEGATIVE 199 henchmen. It didn't take long to fill back up, granted. But still annoying now since I'm far from home, and don't plan to return until probably next June.

Only happens to some players. Not all.

And dead haven't been answering a lot of posts. Not sure why.

Can someone explain what a bot is?
I know a bot is effectively a non human player, how would one spot this?

Specific names such as "bot"?
Clearly means I haven't seen one then.

They also typically have strange names, and the gang intials are the same as the first 3 letters of the gang name. For example: "BoltmanHitman" [BOL].

In addition, bot gangs only have one member and when you look them up they all have a questionmark where the distance in km should be. Also, you cannot locate them (even though you can see them on the map). Another giveaway is that bots have the lowest rank and a fairly low number of points compared to the territories they own.

Btw, I also experienced the problem with bot gangs recapturing squares that had 100+ defenders and it is slightly annoying to say the least. I haven't seen a bot taking territories with 200 men as of yet, but there's always a first. Wink
