    Yes, but it didn't work even before.

    I'm pretty sure round 3 just ended. There was a notice that said last one to tap at 4pm BST would win, which is probably their round 3, even though it wasn't called round 3.

    I was wondering about that too. As I found many references to "squad" and "squadscore" in the code. I assumed there was meant to be a group stage but that they ditched it because of the bots?

    I did exactly that. ;) But you don't even have to be "as close as possible"... You can do it exact. My "final taps" were send 2 days before the end of the final tap event, because you can send exactly timed taps with my bot, even into the future. And the server accepted them because my count did go up so... So my final tap was set 1ms before the event was supposed to end. (17pm British Summer Time. I hope that was :p ) 2 days before we actually got to that point ;)

    I think I would probably just make a group of 4 of my own accounts, spin up 4 bots and do it that way... That would be my first guess.

    ----
    By the way, my bot was still getting softbanned every +/- 100K taps.
    But after my last tweaks it has been running +14 hours without softban, gaining +2.3M taps in that time.
    I even set it to stop automatically 1second before end of the "last tap" event because I thought the whole event ended at 17 BST...
    (As you can see here: https://imgur.com/a/PFKW9zc.
    It says 18 o' clock because I'm in different timezone)
    Restarted it now as it seems the total event is not over yet. But now I at least know it's 100% stable.

    Probably not the best idea to admit you're using software. also, maybe it's different for different locations, but it said 4pm BST, which is 16:00 BST. Here's to hoping software user's don't win :)

    Good for you. I got no connection to the site. It worked fine about an hour before the end.

    Looking at the numbers for the top ten, they were steadily increasing by 20 or 40 every so often. The last digit was always the same after every refresh of their score, except for one user. Seems fishy or that's just how OP programmed the interface.

    Any thoughts on that @Pym C.?

    Technically you can never be sure you were there at the exact time it closed i.e. network connectivity, time to run the command, etc. Many factors come into play, which is why I think they did the contest this way. Regardless, getting your computer time synced reduces a few factors that would come with the lack of precision of my stubby human finger taps...

    No, you're wrong ;) There is a timestamp recorded for each tap that your phone sends to the game server... So if you set that timestamp 1ms before the end of the game it will be there when they go check it ;)

    Oh lol :D:D:D That means I failed, because I thought I read 17 BST and that's where I put my final taps... One hour to late that means :p

    Have you seen my previous post? ;) Even though I switched the bot to my official account now, the bot is far to slow to gain on the top 10 ;) (And that's why I made this temporary forum account)

    In this case I feel like: there are so many people with bots here, it would be stupid not to try it. Don't work hard, work smart youknow ;) I made my bot in an efford to learning something and having fun. If any prices come with it that would be a fun reward for the research efford, but if a manual tapper would win it would be even better. ;)

    It's ok. I wish they better handled bots though (it's not that hard to calculate what's the maximum taps person can do in the given period). However, they tried so I give them some credit for that. And, shame on those that did/tried to spoil the game for others that trully tried to play fair.

    Agreed. They should have set more rules to ban the people ruining the competition for the people who are actually tapping.

    The milestones do not guarantee a prize. It just unlocks a chance to win the item.
