    This is true and something I often times forget.

    Token Price = $20
    Sub Monthly = $15

    This is all assuming that Tokens are in fact player bought and not Blizz posting them to better control economy and make a more consistent profit margin.

    This logic is so flawed and a very common misconception! No one is ever playing for free really. Blizzard makes MORE from token sales. Someone had to BUY the token for someone else to buy and use for sub.

    its exactly that..ive been talking about this for first thoughts were about it when i joined this community in 2013

    Blizzard didnt care bots until they FINALLY cracked down on them in 2016 and did a mass banwave..yet multiboxers got cucked way back in early 2013

    i ranted about this and got told by the admin himself "nah blizzard cares and likes u guys"

    see here btw that post isnt my edir but moderators

    i ranted before but let me tell you...

    i played blizzoid games since diablo 2...and like I ranted about this before but blizzoids DIDNT care about bots there at all(except like 2 giant banwaves that actually targeted bots) and literally banned legit players back in 1.10 instead of botters which was hilarious and kinda still triggers me literally 17-18 years later

    tells you their priorities

    Extremely bummed about this. Requested and received a refund for 4 of my 5 copies of Shadowlands since I still enjoy playing solo at times.

    I've previously dual boxed SWTOR so that could experience both light and dark side of the stories. Maybe i'll look into that again.

    I feel your pain - I know it's only a game but I've literally spent all day feeling what can only be described as "numb"... still can't believe it.

    I assume they will use the same technology to detect key broadcasting programs that they use to detect botting programs.

    Also player reports will auto-ban people multi-boxing in populated areas.

    If the broadcasting software is detected you'll get banned and will have an impossible task to convince low-paid, overworked human customer service agent there is a difference between what is bannable and what round robin is

    I agree - the difference between prohibited "input broadcasting software" and "input round-robin key assigning, but not broadcasting even though its capable of that software" is not a line I think anyone would want to stand on.

I haven't gotten a ban or warning from Blizzard, but given that it's only been an hour or two, I wouldn't put much stock in that.
    Well that didn't take long, not surprised in the slightest given the hatred directed to multi-boxers from the general wow community.

    Also I've read a couple of misconceptions in this thread that I wanted to add my two cents on;
    - Activision makes more money off tokens then subs. People buying game time with tokens is PREFERED by Activision as it makes them more money!

    - The percentage of multi-boxers is greatly exaggerated here, I doubt we would break double, even single digit percentages of wow population. But we have a real and imagined effect on a large percentage of the wow population which leads to reports/complaints, which then requires Activision to spend money actioning these reports/complaints. Activision wants to spend the least amount of money managing WoW.

    - As computers have gotten more powerful, the amount of toons in a multi-boxing team has gotten larger. The game has changed as well in ways like multi-tagging of mobs and multiple toons hitting the same herb/mine node. This has lead to a perfect storm of a single player being able to make a massive amount of gold in the modern game, and Activision have always worked against successful single player gold farms.

    - ISBoxer was too good! It made multi-boxing accessible and thus more people used it leading to more abuse, reports, issues etc.
