    Default 3x Warriors TOS question.

    So I entered Ashenvale as horde earlier to get the first flight path north of the barrens. A lvl 16 night elf was running past.

    My comp is DRuid/war/war/war/sham

    Druid runs as bear and has swpie as the 1 key.
    All three warriors use charge on the 1 key.
    Shaman uses flame shock on 1.

    When I click one, all three warriors charge in. This isn't really a red flag, but the night elf that I squashed made a valid point that the broadcast of the key to the other screen might be a bit questionable. I wanted to come here and clear things up.

    It has me questioning things.


    Any opinions?

    To keep it simple I do not think that it violates TOS because you are the one pressing the button.

    I think the TOS issue is whether you are commanding each action (you are by pressing a key to make X characters perform one action) or if you are performing multiple actions in serial (one after another) with a single key press (you are not, one key = one action) or if you are automating actions/botting (having your characters scripted to perform actions without your input (you are not, you are directing each action individually with a key press).

    Replicating input to multiple game clients—either on the same computer or multiple—is literally the current-day definition of multiboxing, and people have been doing this, in WoW, for fifteen years.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    It is fine and they generally allowed though they removed follow in the BattleGrounds to hamper it there.

    pretty sure that was just a side effect of combating botting and nothing to do with multiboxers.
