    Well I'll be damned - I guess the people who were constantly panicking and insisting the sky is falling for the last 10+ years were finally right!

    Now to figure out a mechanical/non-software way of doing the same thing

    Probably someone should invent a keyboard with 5 usb cables.

    This 100%
    Back when Blizzard removed follow from battlegrounds, that's when I stopped using my team for PvP and only killed players in self defense. I switched to PvE focus and kept my teams away from the public eye as much as possible. Nah, the software made multiboxing too accessible to the general masses, and inevitably you got some buttheads with serious epeen issues trying to stroke their egos by abusing multiboxing and terrorizing solo players. Was fun while it lasted, RIP.

    Such things already exist, so that would be A solution if someone used multiple PCs.

    Could just run multiple VMs on a sufficiently beefy machine and then just have them all receive input.

    Between that and a combination of EMA and GSE you could get pretty close, it just raises the technical bar high enough that the players who are the most visible (yet, funny enough, least frequent) part of the problem will be just fine because they're already spending a ton, while the people who aren't particularly problematic will be unable to play much.

    I'm going to guess that it'll be a very short hop to "no more multi-boxing, period" when Blizzard sees those unintended consequences.

    For me, I'll at least check out Shadowlands, and if it's at all fun then I'll keep one account for a bit, but singleboxing just isn't a very interesting playstyle since everything gets analyzed and optimized to death. C'est la vie!

    Fuck! Had a long ride but it's game over. Five Classic subs cancelled and saved me buying 5 of the new retail expansion.

    I just bought my copies. I'm trying to get a refund now. Fingers crossed they'll let me refund the games and six month subscriptions.

    Yeah, if players are going to circumvent this new rule with hardware solutions, Blizzard surely will adapt. Yet, this change will make multiboxing even more niche as it was, probably those very exotic implementations would not get onto blizzards radar.

    Blizzard obviously does not want Multiboxing to be popular. And this is their solution.

    This is caused by people farming the hell out of BFA.
    In the link you posted, they will begin issuing warnings, which means, presumably, no bans yet.
