    Next to that. he pays for all his accounts, so he deserves to do w/e he wants to do. It's lovely to see little kids rage over it though.
    Which logic do you use when you think that defeating the main character, it - "somehow" - automatically cripples other 10 characters?

    Nothing that is allowed by Blizzard is cheating. Of course each person has his own definition of "cheating". Some call cheating a rogue that uses Ambush, I mean why the fuck isn't that coward coming out of the shadows before hitting you in the back?

    I think people are jealous of multiboxers because they have enough money to do that shit in the first place. I don't see no other reason, because why would you care if someone can do some content alone, or fuck you up in PvP? What is the difference between being fucked up in PvP by a multiboxers or being fucked up by a better geared / skilled player? No difference.

    Cheating? Blizzard says no.
    Anti-social? Depends on the player, but often yes.

    So if Blizzard allowed botting that also would not be considered cheating because "Blizzard says so"?

    An advantage. Not cheating. Again how is one person controlling the action of 10 toons differs from 10 player controlling 10 toons?

    Does this seem right?
    And this person is paying for 10 accounts for the privilege.

    A keystroke usually counts only for the active window. Using tools which bypass that mechanic by extending the keystrokes to several windows is cheating for me. Like someone said "ONE keystroke for TEN actions".

    Keep in mind that you can use such tools for other useful things. You can do quests, raids or something else with a char while a char on another account automatically destroys pots in the Obliterum Forge with every keystroke.

    Don't forget that the Legion loot system is an advantage for multiboxers, too. Every char in the group gets his own loot.

    However, I can understand the other side. Multiboxers pay for each account and the initial keystroke is real and not from a bot.
