Though i personally do not use a bot more and more i think about it not the cheap speech text auto heal crap but for farming Lvl5's. I have seen more and more posts in resent days and weeks with both sides of the story people complaining and people defending the use of bots.
Evony could fix a large part of this by simply setting up a supported in game Bot that allows you to attack coordinates of barbarian cities to a select city and auto send out attacks you would input and add all the coords as well as what to send for each attack and a pecking order of what heroes to send etc. This would allow players alot more freedom to do other stuff in the game and or RL.
any and all ideas on the subject please feel free to contribute and lets avoid the flaming.
before you get gungho on me calling me a noob let it be said i farm 20+lvl10s a day from all my cities the amount climbs daily almost now and between 25-30 lvl5 barbs from each of my cites every day.
I have played on S1 since april 3rd of this past year and grew to the rank of princess had about 1.8mil prestige would have more but was a noob for way to long and took a number of extended breaks from the game.
currently i play on S103 and have aprox 1.2mil prestige and ranked marquis
i dont mind the farming i know my willingness to do it sets me above and ahead of the average gamer and i feel more accomplished then a bot user but it would be a nice addiction that would let me as the Vh and diplomatic officer of my alliance concentrate on that more and farming less
