    Jak, Very sorry to see you go as you helped so many people. I cancelled my subscription renewals back on the day of the previous November announcement though some of subscriptions lasted till March or so... I am not happy right now and I am also semi-pessimistic and am only considering coming back for TBC-Classic because my brother and some friends (all non-boxers) are and because original TBC and WoTLK were really our "gaming heyday" (and when I really got into boxing)... If they were not playing Classic-TBC I would be done... I am likely going to try to 5box in a hobbled but hopefully compliant manner on 5 separate accounts from my primary/original account because I have little faith or trust in Blizzard anymore and want to protect my original account... If I get banned on those extra 5 accounts (or just hate boxing in a hobbled way by trying to be compliant) then frankly I will be done boxing on Blizzard Servers... I may still play TBC-Classic on my one original account some just to be with friends/family but it will be with even more sadness than I have right now...

    I do see lots of folk trying to continue boxing by, since Blizzard is being so hostile/difficult, moving to be boxing on Private Servers... While I used to speak out against that I frankly now don't blame them and no longer feel compelled to speak out against that... I don't know if my change in feelings is because of anger toward Blizzard or because I don't care anymore or because people tried more than reasonably enough to be complaint or something else (or a combination of all or those) but frankly that is the way I feel currently... I suspect my feelings have not gone through all the stages they will go through yet but that is where I am now... I am a long time loyal Blizzard customer who is very sad...

    I have been playing WoW since 2006 and soon discovered multiboxing. Real-life friends played. In fact, one got me into the game, but for some reason they never wanted to play with me. I have had many in-game friends come and go and one guild after another died.
    The only constant had been my ability to multibox when I couldn't find a good group.
    I didn't connect OMB with streamlining, but I figured that since they changed their stance on hardware quickly, it would only be a matter of time before they took back their last semblance of reason.
    Usually when I see complaints about multiboxing it is unimaginative things like "It's the same as botting!" or "It's cheating!" Usually I find endless comments about "Every multiboxer herb farms all day, every day!" and "Every multiboxer farms hyperspawns all day, every day!"

    Obviously those two are mutually exclusive, but I never did either. I only farmed nodes if the materials weren't available at a reasonable price, but usually I waited. There are times when I get OCD about collecting all of the free nodes, but then I get annoyed that I am gathering, not adventuring, and start ignoring them.

    I hate farming!

    I don't understand why vast multitudes of people care deeply about what others do that doesn't affect them remotely.

    I also don't understand people that intentionally spend hours farming. My main has two crafting professions. I buy materials, craft, post, and log out.

    I find it strange how often people complain that they cannot farm because someone flies in with 5 druids and gathers the nodes. They always act like they were there first, so why didn't they gather first?

    It sounds like people complaining just because they were slower.

    How come people keep saying "You can multibox, you just cannot control more than one character at once, just Alt-Tab!"

    Isn't that the definition of not multiboxing?

    I don't know that multiboxing gives much of an advantage with herbalism. Don't you still need to click on the node 5 times?

    I swore that I would stop playing in March. I was positive that I had disabled payments, but all of a sudden I had multiple $78 charges.

    That's how they get you! Then the sudden and inevitable betrayal by the GMs or blues!

    By the way, some Classic players were banned for alleged botting. They marched on Blizzard headquarters and got their ban lifted: https://classic.wowhead.com/news/pla...-317670?page=2

    They could have handled this a lot better than they did.

    1. Make it so concurrent active accounts flag each character for limitations such as:
    2. Gathered mats become BoA.
    3. PvP is disabled.
    4. Damage and healing might be nerfed in PvP (as another option).

    Instead they phoned in the effort and treated all of us like those 2x4 farmers. Liked dungeons? Liked arenas? Liked any part of the game that wasn't trivialized by multiboxing but instead was a handicap? Too bad. You don't count. Only the "majority" does.

    Like the in game cinematics about Shadowlands everything since 2020 has felt phoned in. It's not an accident. Just a look at the company reviews tells you everything you need to know. It's not Blizzard anymore. It's just any old corporate dump now.

    Because that would have cost time and money and Bobby is all about spending zero on either so his stock price soars hence why everything is automated as much as possible requiring as little human (cost) interaction as possible.
    The games a whale cash cow atm and will never be right again.
