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 action 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 10 hours of online activity per day from the same PC if you want to avoid ban.
By default, TCommander Bot will generate a valid random schedule if you have not defined any schedule. This way you avoid to start using the bot 24/7 if you forget to setup online time schedule the first time that you use your game account in the bot.
In top menu go to “Settings” / “Main Settings” to open “Main Settings” dialog box.
There you may see “TCommander Online Time” setting to schedule the time to be online and offline.
By pushing the “Generate schedule” blue button, you can generate a new random schedule automatically again.
However if you want to setup your own personal schedule you can do it manually by clicking each hour number to make that hour online or offline respectively.
Each number in the online time scheduler means 1 hour time interval. For example, number “1” means the first hour of the day, which is from 12:00 AM to 1:00 AM. Number “7” means the 7th hour of the day, which is from 6:00 AM to 7:00 AM, and so on.
So, if “1”, “2”, “3” and “4” are red, the bot will be offline during that period of time from 12:00 AM to 4:00 AM. If “17”, “18”, “19” and “20” are green, the bot will be online during that period of time from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
When TCommander goes offline automatically, it will stop doing all automated tasks inmediatelly. In that stage you will see the green “START” button in upper right corner again. You dont need to push that button again manually if TCommander stopped automatically because it will start again automatically as soon as online time is reached.
If you are going to setup online time schedule manually, you need to follow certain rules in order to make your schedule save and valid to avoid bot detection. If you dont follow these rules, TCommander Bot will notify it.
Rules to set Online Time manually to reduce risk of bot detection
- Set maximum 10 hours online.
- Minimum offline hours in a row should be 2 hours.
- Maximum online hours in a row should be no more than 5 hours. So being online many hours in a row every day is also suspicious. No human can do that every day.
We suggest to destribute online time to be more like a human behavior (3-4 hours online, then come back online after 2 or 3 hours being offline, etc).
You always must follow our suggested rules to set online time to reduce risk of bot detection.
The following sample settings are wrong because the do not follow our suggested rules:
Wrong Settings Sample 1:
Sample below is risky because it has 11 hours online. It breaks rule #1 that says that you must set maximum 10 online hours per day:
Wrong Settings Sample 2:
The following sample is wrong because it breaks rule #2. Hour 16th and 23th are only 1 offline hour in a row. And the rule says that you must set minimum 2 hours offline in a row:
Wrong Settings Sample 3:
The following settings are also too risky because it breaks rule #3. From 17th to 22 hours there is a total of 6 online hours in a row, and it should be no more than 5 hours in a row:
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 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 10 hours a day, there are two ways to achieve it:
- 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.
- 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.
