You would still have to wake up to active the clicker as far as i know. But I’m not expert on cheating devices.
From my understanding of how a clicker works:
A player would still have to login every 4 to 6 hours in order to active the bot and not miss out on any flags
And autofarming is simply look at phone, click, look at phone, click, etc some phones even have split screen features which allow you to still text, Line, read forum(like I’m doing now), while still autofarming
You can autofarm while working, driving, watching a movie, doing house work, just about anything with very little extra effort. So i wouldnt see a huge advantage of a clicker.
I’m sure there are advantages I’m not seeing. But not sitting through autofarm and watching it, wouldnt be considered cheating in my opinion.
Cheating would have to constitute an unfair gain or advantage
There are already apps that keep programs runnin while phone screen dims or goes off, without being clickers or even being noticed by the game. My phone actually goes black while autofarm is running without any kind of apps or modifications. Actually annoys me at times.
But if devs say clickers are banned, clickers are banned, they have their reasons, and we should just respect it and let it rest
