During early-game farming, it is very important to loose as little troops as possible. When hunting for farms in the early game, if you notice that a player has stopped growing near you at 100-250 pop but you aren't sure about their troop count, you can check their def/off rankings along with their hero rankings to see what their activity looks like. If you notice that they have 0 points in both, there is a good chance that you will face no resistance in that village when farming. Then you can scout safely & find a juicy farm to help you grow.
