    Default Click to move on BGs

    I know that following on BG is disable.
    But i also know we have another option for move our toons. Its click to move + ISboxer.
    So is it forbidden, or bannable on BG?
    Or its also disable? Anyone trying this?

    So, if anyone believes that CTM may be a viable method of moving around the game world, when the follow command is unavailable, then I urge you to try using it to move around in any environment (it doesn't have to be a battleground). After trying it out and becoming comfortable with its, at best, inefficient and inaccurate results, the next step would be to simulate a hostile environment by having another player begin to CC your party members, either with single-target, or multi-target CC.

    At that point, my question would be: How would you ever recover from that without the follow command?

    Now, depending on the team comp, someone could have some limited tricks up their sleeve, sure, but follow's been removed from the game for almost 7 years, and if there hasn't been a guide made to show how to efficiently use CTM without follow, then it might be safe to assume that one does not exist, and that CTM may not be viable, in the absence of follow, after all.

    However, I always like to leave it open, and if anyone wants to put in the time and effort to prove me wrong, then I'm certainly not going to stop you. I'm sure those who want to PvP in battlegrounds would love to have an answer, but know this: Every efficient workaround that's been found, and made public, has been broken, so even if someone had an answer to this, they're keeping it as close to themselves as possible.

    If you know me you know I love to tinker with isBoxer and occasionally come up with unique solutions to problems, and I have looked into this issue.

    MiRai probably said it best with "someone could have some limited tricks up their sleeve" but thats it. I still have all my research and I add to it occasionally for when I try again. But I just don't think they want us in there so best to stay out.

    I'm may not be the best person to figure out the problem because I do not care for instanced PvP. But I have tried, I'm looking out for you guys.

    My concern is that any workaround that someone comes up with that makes boxing successful in battlegrounds may result in Blizzard reacting and breaking it and then that breaks boxing in other areas.

    Not worth it in my opinion.

    i press click, and all my toons move to that point? also all toons turn around with click lol.
    it can be very easy, especially if your setup is mages and priests and u play lineage 2 before. u need only 1 button that called arcane explosion (and holy novas).
    if target too far away, u can press frostbolt allways.
    i dont wanna do BGs, but if i do i dont wanna go 60 lvl bgs, but maybe 19-49
    I just wondering, if this is working on BG, so blizzard make a huge mistake becouse i still can enter bg and pwn

    My apologies - I didn't realize it was so easy. Now that I'm more informed, I, as well as many others look forward to your library of videos where you're successfully multiboxing in battlegrounds. I will add that many players are interested in this and they would love to be shown how it's done, so I will ask that your videos include things such as moving throughout the battleground, properly recovering during a fight where you're being CC'd, gathering your team up after a partial wipe, and navigating towers, bunkers, and other structures, since a montage of sitting in a single area, such as the flag room or The Field of Strife, and acting as a turret, one-shotting a few players before things quickly go south, is quite boring.

    I am certainly looking forward to this!

    There are so many choke points in AV you probably could get away with just sitting in one location and farming honor.

    Hiding around a corner and spamming arcane explosion any time somebody tries to get through to Drek, for example. Pretty boring way to play though and I'm sure you'd get reported a billion times.

    Without using Click to Move, you can sort of function in a BG. I have a couple of games played in AV / Arathi Basin recently, but honestly it just wasn't fun. Without /follow, the aggravation/hassle is really too much.

    We all want it to work like it used to. It was a big part of what I did in WoW. Now I just leave war mode on for the World quest bonuses and ignore the other faction unless it's for the weekly "Against all Odds" quest.

    Agreed.

    Personally, I'm just playing casually and doing a little world PvP when it pops up.

    Hoping they will announce something about a "classic TBC" at some point in the near future.
