    Because no matter how you spin it, a multiboxer still plays the characters. If he doesn't, he's breaking the ToS.

    I tried dual-boxing once (to farm transmog in a raid that was still no cakewalk to solo), and that was annoying enough. Not sure how some manage to maintain 10 characters.

    People selling gold will just get more accounts during that time. Every account is a burner-a ban is just a business cost.

    I'm ambivalent about this personally. Too many bots and the game is shit. On the other hand I don't like being told what I can and can't do, especially by an organization as greedy as Blizzard.

    Highly debatable. If a keypress is replicated across multiple clients it is obviously a form of automation. The real reason Blizzard don't ban MB is that it makes a fuckton of money for them.

    Btw I'm guessing you are totally ok with Blizzard using psychoaddictive techniques redolent of casinos/carny sharps to hook minors like laboratory rats...I'm sure that's different for reasons...

    You were giving orders, and I'm 100% convinced you believe yourself to have authority as well. It fits a certain profile.

    And when I'm told that standing up for what's fair on quite an objective topic is "idiotic", I only know to dismiss whatever comes from that individual in the future.

    Whether a specific incident proves to be a mere rumor (this has been sent out by Blizzard themselves), I still maintain my attitude towards cheaters. I'll delight whenever they're caught. Seeing the effects of their actions in-game, ensures that fact.

    /More definitively Bye Now.

    It was a simple point I was making. The last time Blizzard released a statement like this no one was actually violating the T&C's. People like you - in fact I think literally you were frothing at the mouth excitedly at the thought of imaginary bans of people who didn't exist.

    People didn't know what was really going on then (Blizzard being fooled by a troll) and they don't know, so unless you want to double-down on stupid you might want to be quiet.It is your choice.

    i havnt seen any herb botters in najz. plenty of "multiboxers" though. but having multiple accounts isnt illegal afaik, as long as you dont use some sorta 3rd party program to steer the other accounts.

    I rly dont think its a money thing,just a rule set that they dont wanna deal with,by that logic why do they ban bots?yes those people buy new accounts and its a business cost,but cant the same be said about multiboxers?

    Now if only this rule could apply to multiboxing.

    That is what a cheating andy will get, I'm sure it was no surprise to them. I wonder how long bans you get these days? I remember getting perma'd when I botted back in vanilla or tbc to level fishing.

    Yes, it wont give you advantage over the same amount of people, since one person cant outplay 2+ (unless they suck ballz in that case they had it comming). Just learn to fear and you should be good

    They just assume you press a magic button and the game does everything to you. The fun part is knowing that one person is able to outplay them twice.

    "The most serious offences" certainly don't get "3 months", because that's not how Blizzard's penalty system has ever worked. Three months is one of those penalties you can basically only get if you've already been in trouble repeatedly, and you could get it for abusing people in /general if you did it enough times.
    Fishing bot first offence will only net you 6 months. They don't like to perma if they can help it, something about if you perma someone they'll just buy another account, but if you suspend they'll think twice about botting on that account again, or something.

    Are you really that surprised you'll likely get infracted for flaming another user? How is it hard to understand after 2 years?

    Multi Boxing is not against tos as some would think in here. So no they will not get banned as along as they are playing. Boxing is not unfair advantage when you have to control all toons and be there doing it.

    Now ? is the people selling mythic+,Leveling and raid sells. For gold is that type getting banned? Cause to be to the point technically speaking thats unfair advantage. Don't get me wrong i think non of these are against tos and should be GG. But not going to lie most say sit there and get gear.

    How is it not an unfair advantage getting 5x the herbs as another person would?

    Not really. Classic has been losing players at a steady pace for 6 months now, I'm not sure how much we can take before there aren't enough players on the servers

    Every multiboxer (3+) is using tools to automate steering toons on the boxed. Flame on.

    Now they just have to take care of the multibox bot-teams in Nazjatar, my realm (Tarren Mill) is swarmed by them and you can easily tell they are using bots since they fly very stuttery in a waypoint-type of pattern. All we can do is report them, but its really annoying trying to farm herbs when these bot-teams make them despawn.

Rince and Repeat.

    People lie. A lot. About everything. Even trivial things to strangers on the internet.

    Those programs are legal because they only emulate what you can do with hardware

    Please be reminded that using third-party programs to automate any facet of the game, exploiting bugs, or engaging in any activity that grants an unfair advantage is considered cheating.
    Uhm, multiboxing? Windows natively accepts input for 1 foreground wow client, duplicating those inputs and sending it to 9 other clients is kinda automation, dont you think??
