    I am a multiboxer, and have seen a few people I know receive 6 month bans for farming in the outdoor world.
    I am about to reactivate my accounts and would not ever want to be banned myself ( I have boxed since the Burning Crusade) and my account means a lot to me.


    My first question is this.. is farming the same spot a bannable offense? I was planning on farming for the Dune Scavenger mount (for personal use). Of the people I know that have had a 6 month ban have been boxing to farm.. I will avoid this if this is a cause of the ban.
    Also I know there is a note on my account that I am a boxer and I am sure that I will be reported many times for boxing. I have never had contact or action taken against me for boxing in the past, but I must admit I am feeling a little nervous about boxing in this expansion. I use isboxer, and don't use any advanced features. All I use is the ability for 1 keypress one ability, and I only box 3 of the same class to use the abilities spell for spell.


    Your feedback on this issue is appreciated.

    The response:


    He didnt say you actually had to be in front of the pc monitors either, incase they wanted to "bot check" you. So as long as you dont automate at all, you could be sitting at your neightbours house with a wireless keyboard, pressing buttons while watching a movie. And you dont have to come back to watch the monitors for many many hours.
    Their "anti keypressing bot" detection software should be able to pick up if any unhuman keypresses are happening over time, i would assume.

    Also, if some few people complain, thats no problem, its only a problem if "it distrups gameplay for a large number of players. "Large" number = dont know how many, but certainly not just from a few random complaints from angry jelous strangers passing by.

    Nice to know i guess.

    I don't know but personally I would never not be at my screen when playing.. afk is fine as I would be doing nothing anyhow. The issue is when you are performing actions while not at your keyboard. They don't have to say but I feel it's a given that you should be at your keyboard while playing.

    I dropped to 3 partly so people could still get tags on my stuff. I don't take any risks, my account is 11 years old now.

    I wouldn't contact a GM just to see if multiboxing is ok. We will never learn anything about it that we don't already know.

    You're just poking the sleeping bear.

    I haven't farmed gold in 8+ years, so I am not sure why players/boxers are farming gold. Only reason I farmed way back when was to sell for money.

    Playing normally gives plenty of gold. If you are farming gold to pay for subs just so you can farm gold to pay for subs, is that really worthy of a persons time? Is it worth any risk however minimal? If you can afford to box then you can afford to pay the subs.

    At least transfer a character over to a separate battle.net account every once and a while so you save a majority of your pets/mounts/achievement points in case you get banned so starting over anew isnt such a pain.

    I feel that ever since HBu**y went bye that there are boxers, most of them are new who are circumventing this play style for profit. Using semi=afk,afk stand still farming using repeater software on macros for dps/looting on as many characters as they can for a couple of bucks. These are fucking sad people.

    I always pay for my subs with real money, and I want to farm the mounts that drop in world & also profession mats like cloth. As I only 3 box dungeons aren't much use for it.

    I paid for my subs with tokens towards the end of legion, but now back to paying with subscription. The only farming I had to do was log into my alts parked at the OrderHall mission board.

    Hello again, ****

    When we last spoke, I'd requested some of our developers look into the situation. Because we couldn't eliminate the possibility of a mistake on our end, we opted to reopen each of your accounts.

    While you're welcome to resume playing, I want to encourage you to abandon any third party software that does anything more advanced than key cloning. The moment there is any level of outboard scripting or automated interpretation/decision making, the line between multiboxing and botting has been crossed.

    Thank you for your understanding, and I look forward to seeing you playing for years to come.Regards,

    Supervisor Borroq
