    Default Is hardware boxing legal?

    Greetings, dear boxers!

    I've been playing 5man team on TBC since release. My first 2 months of playing was absolutely legal (i clicked win+1-5 then skill button).
    Then I've started to use keyboard macro to switch between boxes and cast similar skills faster (my fingers a bit tired of that win+x spam )

    It seems that blizzard stopped paying attention to people like me (of which a minority).

    I received a lot of rude PMs from regular players while leveling up and promises that they would report me for cheating/botting etc.

    So, my boxes are still alive and SOM will be released soon.

    Has the situation really improved in the case of hardware boxing? or am I just so lucky

    *I can assume that blizz stopped checking multiboxers because of their problems with law suits etc, but they banned a lot of bots (in steamvault, brd etc).

    How is your tbc multiboxing going? any assumptions regarding SOM multiboxing bans in future?

    Using keyboard macros to string multiple commands together to fire off in a sequence with a single key press is against the rules of the game.

    As of now, the rules relating to "streamlined" multiboxing have not changed.

    It's highly unlikely that the workload of customer support is affected by any ongoing legal battles at Blizzard.

    We would prefer not to direct any discussion towards bans, simply because it's entirely speculation and tends to lead absolutely nowhere in terms of useful conversation.

    Other than that, there are still plenty of people multiboxing without any penalties, simply because multiboxing, in the most basic sense, is still allowed.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.
