    What next in terms of looking at a hardware broadcasting solution? I could put up a more official post on the forums asking for a blue response, or I could just going ahead with my own tests in WoW classic. What do others think is the best way to get clarity from Blizz?

    Currently there have been 2 GM responses I'm aware of.

    I don't have the images handy, but one GM said "No", to all things that aren't manual input for each window. Meaning no hardware sync etc.

    Then one GM said they honestly don't know and it's more of a legal issue, but their final answer was anything that isn't input broadcasting software is fine.

    A few people have gotten their hardware setups up and running over the past few days, and I think the play here is to just log on and play as you normally would, and see if you eventually get a warning / if the rules change.

    My personal opinion (for anyone that cares :P) is that hardware boxing being allowed will be purely dependent on how disruptive it becomes once again, meaning if all the farmers and mass world PvPers pick it up again, it's probably going to get banned again.

    Anyway, keep us updated as per usual, interested to read your findings!

    Right now it's just a warning, the blue post stated that suspensions will follow "Soon thereafter, the warnings will escalate to account actions".
    I recon the warning phase will last at least till Shadowlands launch and I continued playing every day with HKN after I received a warning for each of my wow licenses (6 in total).

    Since only software was named in the policy update I plan on switching to hardware solution with one PC and Aster (Edit: Multiseat desktop virtualization superior to VM) setup:

    Existing Hardware:

    Slaves Display: Luckily I already own an LG 43UD79 42" 4k display with 4x 1080p PBP / PIP options, can be easily set switched via remote.
    Master: Acer XB271HU
    i7-7700K
    16gb DDR4
    GTX 1080TI
    GTX 1660

    Additional Hardware ordered:


    8 ports KVM switch USB synchronizer 8 ports synchronous controller a set of keyboard/mouse control 8 PC
    (had to order on aliexpress, no retailer has it in europe/france, amazon.com doesn't deliver it to europe T_T, kudos to jak3676 pointing towards the tech)

    PCI-E USB 3.0 Extension Card with 5x + 2x USB
    (need more USB slots for the keyboard inputs)

    16gb DDR4
    (was planning to upgrade for some time now anyway, running 5-6 wow clients brings me up to 12-13gigs, running the additional VMs with~4-5gigs would hit a limit)

    4x HDMI cable

    4x Display Port to HDMI Adapter (graphic cards have mostly only DP outputs)


    Goal

    Run 5x Windows via Aster (https://www.ibik.ru/)
    Keyboard sends a signal to the KVM switch USB synchronizer
    Each Windows receives it's own hardware keyboard signal
    Each Windows runs one wow client
    4 slaves run on 4k display via 4x 1080p PBP
    1 master on main display

    For that monitor - don't swap inputs via remote. Instead look at "Mouse without Boarders", "Synergy", "Barrier" - all essentially a software K/M switch that will automatically switch your keyboard and mouse.

    Not sure I understand Aster (https://www.ibik.ru/) - made me google it as I'm just not going to click on a .ru link. Why not run virtualbox is you want a free VM solution?

    That sounds like a good plan and as long as long as you limit 1 input causing 1 action to 1 client you are likely in keeping with both the letter and spirit of the law.

    Grats on that 'LG 43UD79' as it is younger (and improved) sibling to my 'Dell P4317Q' as that should be pretty sweet!

    What are the classes/roles you plan to run in your initial 5box?

    Are you running 4Mages+Priest (4MP) or PaladinTank+3Mages+Priest (Pa3MP) or something else?

    Just a reminder for those going hardware, Cyber monday is November 30th.

    Any sort of 4-core, 8GB RAM, Nvida 1030 PC will should be fine for multiboxing at the low resolutions and graphics detail that we put on our followers (up to 1080P). You can find these sorts of systems used/refurbished for $150-$250 if you look around, maybe 2x that much if you go new. I've paid more than that for keyboards, so its not super spendy. But yes, not as cheap $5/month

    I remember the old hardware setups posted here back in the day... it seems we've come full circle
