    Default How do you deal with all the hatred towards multiboxers?

    Hi all,

    I decided to 5 man box for the first time and am enjoying the stress test. IsBoxer and EMA are both marvelous.

    However, i realized i'm more or less hated by everyone. People randomly come to me and spit on me. Some called me names and hurl insults. I even avoided main questing areas so that I dont get in the way of the quest givers....but the insults never stopped.
    How do you guys deal with all these hatred? I really like open world grinding/kill quests.....perhaps I should just hide and level in the dungeons.

    I don't mind that people rage when they see multiboxers.

    The only issue with people hating multiboxers is that it could hurt you if the premades/raid guilds go like "oh that guy, I have seen him multibox, we hate multiboxer, you aren't allowed to join our group!", so it could potentionally be harder to get in premade bgs/raids.

    I don't know if you can report people on blizzards servers for being offensive to multiboxers although I assume so (I have only 2-3 boxed on blizzards servers in the past). It is not allowed to do it on PS so fun to write a quote of rules when they do and everyone quickly becomes silent.

    Quote from blizzards rules: "You may not use language that could be offensive or vulgar to others.
    Hate speech and discriminatory language is inappropriate, as is any obscene or disruptive language. Threatening or harassing another player is always unacceptable, regardless of language used. Violating any of these expectations will result in account restrictions. More serious and repeated violations will result in greater restrictions."

    It is the same on retail too. I find most people literally stop in their tracks when they see a big boxer lol.

    You can mind your own business and people still whisper insults, follow you around, start debates in general about "cheating", call you a bot and they're reporting. - Just so you know I have probably been reported 100s of times and no contact from Blizz was ever made so you don't have to worry about the false reports.

    You grow a thicker skin over time. I do respond to haters that whisper, politely just stating it isn't against the rules, just to cut down on the potential reports that wastes Blizz's time. Don't let others make you feel ashamed for boxing, it is perfectly legal and it's their problem not yours if they don't like it.

    Get it all the time and have done for years.

    I do alot of wPvP in areas alot of Horde and Alliance gather on my (BFA) server shard.

    The ones that do get you are people who have been friendly for a long time and try to jump you during a big fight or turn for no random reason and start spurting off.

    I hang around Gurubashi alot so sometimes faction lines change with free for all PvP flags

    I've only had a couple people over the years and the hate was minimal, the majority of people I interact with are pleasant with me. Retail is certainly fine with multiboxers for the most part.

    I have even had people stand up for me. Very recently I was in a warfront and someone said "A multiboxer lets kick him" and someone else said "Why he's pulling his weight." and nobody kicked me. Same with all the group world quests, people see me helping and are OK with it. If I see someone soloing a rare I stop and help and they /wave or /thank.

    I drop a bling6k then drop five bling5k so they fight and people are like WoW thats awesome. When I hearth I put on a show, spread my team out and use an assortment of the hearth toys and people are like Wow cool!!

    If someone is mean and continues being mean I just put them on my ignore list, but currently there is nobody on it. I'm just not seeing the hate you see.

    I had both the hate pm's and then asking why I do it and they were the ezey bunch too deal with lol.. But the hard 1 for me was the people I was in a guild with friends with on facebook. I started multiboxing was so we could raid has a guild.. Sadly in away they walked out of my life heheh... But the other side of that is I found a awesome and fun way too play WoW♥ And a awesome group of people that all are here for one another

    I did not see any multiboxers, it doesn't seem like we'll be more common in classic than in retail. And its a stress test, why wouldn't they just assume you're stress testing? I just don't get the hate.

    I was questing with three other multiboxers (one 5x, one 2x, and one 3x) in the stress test last night just in the couple hours I was on, though arguably that will be different when it goes live.

    As for people hating multiboxers, eh, the opinions of mental midgets are just not worth spending any brain cycles on.


    I've been reported so many times, the GMs stopped asking me anything other than "Yo, you multiboxing?" "Yep!" "OK, happy hunting!"
    Now playing: WoW (Garona)
