Batch-scout script for Rabona

in Programming/Dev2 months ago (edited)

I'm a fan of automating. I really hate doing things manually if there is a way to automate them. And if you're playing a blockchain game, then there are a lot of actions that can be automated.

The scouting aspect in the game is one of them. I scout a lot, like really a lot. Every time I click the scout button, I wait for the game to process, then check the player stats, then repeat. This is very time-consuming if you scout let's say, fifty players at a time.

This python script automates these actions:

  • creates a custom JSON op to trigger scout
  • waits until the game processes the transaction
  • prints the player stats if os > 60

import argparse
import json
import time

from lighthive.client import Client
from lighthive.datastructures import Operation
from rabona_python import RabonaClient

rabona_client = RabonaClient()

    PLAYER_TYPE_DEFENDER: "defender",
    PLAYER_TYPE_MIDFIELDER: "midfielder",
    PLAYER_TYPE_ATTACKER: "attacker",

def create_custom_json_op(username):
    scout_json = json.dumps(
            "username": username,
            "type": "scout_players",
            "command": {"tr_var1": username}

    train_op = Operation('custom_json', {
        'required_auths': [],
        'required_posting_auths': [username, ],
        'id': 'rabona',
        'json': scout_json,
    return train_op

def get_signable_player(trx_id):
    signable_players = rabona_client.signable_player(trx=trx_id)
    if not signable_players.get("players", []):
        return get_signable_player(trx_id)

    return signable_players.get("players")[0]

def scout(total, username, pkey):
    lighthive_client = Client(keys=[pkey, ])
    print('> Will scout %s players for %s.' % (total, username))
    for i in range(total):
        op = create_custom_json_op(username)
        trx_id = lighthive_client.broadcast_sync(op).get("id")
        signable_player = get_signable_player(trx_id)
        if signable_player.get("overall_strength") > 60:
            print("> Scouted: %s. Type: %s, OS: %s, TP: %s" % (

if __name__ == '__main__':
    parser = argparse.ArgumentParser(description='Batch scout tool')
    parser.add_argument('username', metavar='U', type=str,
                        help='Your team\'s username')
    parser.add_argument('count', metavar='N', type=int,
                        help='How many players do you want to scout?')
    parser.add_argument('posting_key', metavar='P', type=str,
                        help='Private posting key')
    args = parser.parse_args()
    scout(args.count, args.username, args.posting_key)

Requires Python3.6. lighthive, rabona_client python libraries must be installed.

You can run it like:

$ python <username> <amount_of_players> <private_posting_key>


nice one!
you could even speed this further up and save a few sleep(3) by sending up to 5 custom_jsons per trx/block :D

good suggestion but not sure if the game backend parse the custom jsons like that :)

!!!!!! THIS IS THE WAY !!!!!! I love it!

Really seem to be into this game

yeah, it's a kind of challenge for me. :)
