Interesting, I was wondering if this would happen. What better way to disguise a decreasing player pool than to increase it with inactive accounts to avoid repeat spawns.
Hopefully someone can confirm.

Come to think of it I’ve been seeing more & more pvp with holes for 3 prototypes but none deployed. That might explain why. 🤔

I think this is sufficient evidence that inactive accounts have been brought back into the player pool

OK, raids started 7 days ago, I only returned to the TF and looked at the account yesterday.
So 6 raids over 3 days by different players prior to yesterdays activity, about right for that base level.
day 66 raid was probably a remnant on some map.
before that it had been 127 and several hundred days since I had been in that account in kwityerbichin (screen grabbed that too just in case)

Just thought, if inactive players have been put into the pool again to spawn on maps then it follows that inactive players could be spawning active players.
Anyone notice their raids decreasing slightly? My figures are off due to not having time to play last cycle.

looks like the first new activity was Dr T spawn 7 days ago, followed by some raids. Then a several days of nothing until Hammerman.

I am doing a similar experiment.  Three weeks ago I ran my Capt Nasty Too account up to 1365 vp and ran out of PP.

I parked Capt Nasty Too in a place holder TF that I created. I signed out of the Game Center account that Capt Nasty Too is stored under and have not accessed that iTunes account since. 

I am monitoring the intel and VP of that account by searching for the TF and only viewing the information that is publicly viewable.  I am inferring attacks by tracking intel.  Since the account is not being played or accessed anymore, the only means of increasing intel is via an attack that loses enough troops.  VP can be lost from PvP raids or raids on resource bases.  With tribal boosts, statue boosts and protoweappns expired, this is a very weak base that anyone at ~1250vp should be able to plow right through.  The base only has a DBD MP and BH MP for blues.

What I have observed is that I was getting attacks through this past Saturday.  The attacks slowly trailed off during a two week period.  The last attack against the account was this past Saturday evening right after the TF stats reset.  In the 4 days since the last attack,  the account has held steady at 1268 VP and 1 intel.

I interpreted the attacks after 48 hours of inactivity to be from players who had saved me on their maps.  As my tribal boosts, statue boosts, and proto weapons expired I believe players were taking advantage of the weakened base. 


I also believe some of the VP loss was due to Resource Base losses.  I owned all of my RBs when I shelved the account.  I could see where expiration of my statue boosts could have led to some of my resource bases being taken.
