    -Will Post SS Here-

    battle for gilneas @ level 89
    Horde - 8 Bots
    Alliance - None

    Got Raped. The bots "Defended" Mines by attacking anything that came close. Alliance player just kited them away and capped.
    Me level 89 monk and a level 88 warrior, took LH after losing Mines and then WW which caused us to lose LH because 1 warrior cant solo 5 hunters.

    When there are more bots than players its a problem. When you cant kick them because there isnt enough players to vote kick, its a problem.

    Not a bot. Aredone is a well known multiboxer. He plays on my server, US-Kil'Jaeden. I see him around from time to time, actually a nice guy to talk to. He's been known to camp alliance PVP vendors for hours, lol.

    Notice how everyone in his guild has the title, "the Bloodthirsty".

    I absolutely hated the one time I encountered him in AV, though ironically enough I think we actually beat him after a really, really long knockdown dragout fight. I also take comfort in knowing that he can't really do this with any other BG effectively (if you look at his stats on his characters they all have massive amounts of AV wins and very few in any other BG). I haven't played any of the new BGs yet, but at least for the old ones there is no other BG like AV where you can just keep defending towers while picking off the entire other team and beating them by resources alone (even IoC would be next to impossible for him because he can never go on O and the boss doesn't have much HP and no warmasters to buff him).

    Multiboxing /= Botting. A bot is a BOT, as in Robot. It runs automatically, on it's own, with no input from a user once it has been started up.

    A multiboxer is someone running multiple toons simultaneously by clever use of keybinding and key-cloning to send one keypress to multiple machines simultaneously. They ALL require user input to function, even if it is just one guy giving parallel input to multiple toons. If the multiboxer stops giving input, they ALL stop functioning. Exactly the same way a single character played by a single person would stop functioning if that person went AFK.

    Again, Multiboxing /= botting.

    He is multiboxing 39 characters? Does that mean he owns 39 computers and pays for 39 WoW accounts every month?

    Wow... so much clarification in this thread. There you go OP - they weren't bots, they were a multi-boxer. That makes you feel better right? Still had a good ol' time in that BG i bet - really kicked some ass with the multi-boxer..? I like how most posters think this is absolutely fine.

    It's not automated because all the program does is copy all commands you make, and share it with the rest of all active WoW accounts... I multiboxed two accounts for a couple of months once, was quite fun.

    If multiboxing was actually botting, then the first person wouldn't need to control anything either.

    "Well it's not bots, so it's not a problem."
    I don't see how there is anything wrong with multi-boxing for as long as you give all the commands to all the characters? It's quite easy to defeat one if you have something like aoe fear, thunderstorm or the like... The following accounts can only follow with the follow command, if separated they are going to have trouble catching up again...

    You can edit it so the program also copies WASD movements, but it's not nearly accurate enough and the characters will quickly stray off course. It also won't copy mouse movements.

    every encounter i've had with him hes been a total douchbag and a real sore loser.

    .... he's also not that great at multiboxing. the only thing that makes him impressive is the sheer number of toons, his actual fine control and multitasking ability is absolutely awful compared to some boxers i've seen play.

    Aredone is a well known multiboxer on KJ. He is hated by every single Alliance, and from what I've heard, the Horde also hates him just as much. Always griefing Alliance cities, and fucking up Horde/Alliance World boss kills.

    Last I heard MultBoxing isn't botting... perhaps they should ban those that dont know the definition of botting...

    Bots or multiboxing, who cares if it is not the same thing.

    Both botters and multiboxers ruins the game and makes it unfair.

    If you keep letting botters and multiboxers fill up all BG spots or camp rares, then eventually it's going to piss people off so much they are not going to want to play anymore.

    just throwing this out there for discussions. 2 points id like to acknowledge.

    1) most multiboxers are controlled by one main "master" controller right? in my experiences (when coming across someone multi boxing with 2 or 3 toons) killing the "master" basically turned them into drones and thus not able to do anything until the master respawned and set all his stuff up. in this case, id almost have to imagine that it would be difficult to control all of the acounts all the time, thus resulting in some afking going on. how many cases would it take against these multiboxers for blizz to throw them the ban hammer?

    2) this is the first 40 person multiboxer ive ever heard of, but i have heard of lots of people multi boxing 3 or 4 at a time. also i know of quite a few people that have multiple accounts. that being said, and forgive me if this is considered derailing, how many of the supposed 10 million subscribers are actually individual people/accounts? i dont mean to turn this into a "WoW's subscription number is a lie" thread but it does beg the question as to how many of those 10 million subscribers are one person with multiple accounts

    This. Aredone is a hero to the Horde, and a terrible nightmare to the Alliance. Although some guilds have been known to easily kill him. Back when I first came to KJ I heard something about him running 6 computers to do all this.

    He isn't doing nothing against ToS. He's known to be camping Alliance in Valley of the Four Winds nowadays.

    I will not say that I am guilty, for that denotes shame. Nor will I protest innocence, for I claim no such. Let the comedy begin.

    This is one of the issues right now. Not botting itself, but false reports of "botters" when players are just 1) multiboxing legitimately 2) AFK'ing / on follow 3) Just plain bad. I cringe everytime a loss is blamed on bots, just accept the team or even your own contribution was poor.

    Blizzard has said time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time again that most botters don't give any money as they use stolen details, which ends up costing blizz money in the end.
