Thanks for that explanation. I don't use bot programs - wouldn't know where to start - so must be the Guardian thing at the end of the month when you suddenly have 1000 extra energy for city on each server which I get rid of manually as fast as possible killing multiple warlords at same time.
I also use a lot of rapid clicks for elysian position tournaments as lower level positions (1-31 in my case) only require 1 hamippo or 1 dimacha to clear.
If we don't know how many clicks in a single minute activates this kill switch then we have no chance of avoiding it. if it's due to game lags then there is no way of avoiding it even, as you suggest, if you click more slowly.
PS It would be nice to have a link to contact support within the game as it usually takes half an hour or more to find relevant info which is frustrating
