TCommander Bot Security – Bot Detection – Avoid Ban

Our top priority is to make TCommander Bot as undetectable and save as possible. It is being developed to simulate a human being interacting with game server in behalf of you by making every feature as human as possible.

However, despites TCommander Bot acts almost like a human, there are certain rules that you must consider in order to reduce the risk of being detected by a Multihunter:

 

Online Time – TCommander Bot Security

No human can be awake 24/7. That is why Multihunters can be attracted by your account activity if you are online too many hours in a row every day, at least from the same PC.

You must avoid being more than 12 hours of online activity per day from the same PC if you want to avoid ban.

By default TCommander Bot is set to get offline and online automatically every certain number of minutes to avoid being detected my multihunters. However you can increase or decrease offline and online random times respectively as you wish.

In top menu go to “Settings” / “Main Settings” to open “Main Settings” dialog box.

Default online and offline values are recommended settings to have TCommander Bot connected to game server as longer as possible in 24 hours.

This is how it works:
If bot is offline, it will be disconnected from game server but waiting random minutes as set in “Offline Time” settings. After offline random time is reached, it will connect to game server and start doing all automated tasks. At this point it will be waiting random minutes as set in “Online Time” settings (while doing all automated tasks). After online random time is reached, the bot will disconnect from game server and start waiting random offline time again like first step.

TCommander Bot will repeat this process indefinitely (being online and offline some random time) and at the end of the day, the total online hours should be less then the time needed to avoid bot detection.

You should NEVER disable automatic offline/online activity, otherwise the bot could be online more time that the recommended one, and your account could be banned.

 

Also, it is very important that you make sure “Human Emulation” checkbox is enabled. Human emulation is used to add random time to certain automatic tasks.

 

Using External Web Browser

TCommander Bot has been developed to run while you are not playing in the PC and do automatic tasks in behalf of you. So, it was not developed to be used with another web browser at the same time with the same travian account, otherwise it could malfunction due to wrong village activation and/or if you cancel tasks from external web browser .

Also running TCommander with an external web browser at the same time is a suspicious behavior and can increase the risk of detection by Multihunters. So we recommend to click “STOP” button (this will logout TCommander from game server inmediatelly) while you are playing with any external web browser and then Click START button when you are done with your web browser.

 

How to simulate different persons playing with same account (Dual Accounts)

If you want to be online for more than 12 hours a day, there are two ways to achieve it:

  1. Use different PCs and set different scheduled online time in each PC. You can run TCommander Bot in any number of PCs with the same license. This way you can simulate different persons playing with the same account from different PCs.
  2. Use one PC with multiple instances of this travian bot by using proxy. The same simulation can be done this way. Just run any number of TCommander Bot instances in the same PC with different proxy settings in each instance and different scheduled online time in each.
    To do so, just set proxy settings while you login:

Human Behavior – TCommander Bot Security

Despites TCommander Bot behaves almost like a human, there are many game actions that cannot be emulated, at least not with current Artificial Inteligence technologies.  For example, answering IGMs, chatting with friends in alliance, not to study the ratings and profiles of other players, etc.

So, there is no 100% warranty to use TCommander without being detected by a Multihunter. All we can do is reduce the risk of being detected by improving current features and adding more features to simulate a human player.

For example, we are planning to add a new feature to help you to reduce detection risk if someone sends you an IGM and you do not respond quickly while being online with TCommander Bot. This feature consists in setting an email address to receive TCommander Bot notifications, so you will be able to receive a notification when an IGM is received and you will be able to answer it sooner.

You can also suggest other features to reduce the risk of being detected by Multihunters in our Contact page. Our top priority is TCommander Bot Security.
