Let’s just prove exactly how hypocritical the EULA is when referencing multiboxing. How many things does it break I wonder?
“Cheats: facilitating the gameplay, including exploits of any in-game bugs, and thereby granting you and/or any other user an advantage over other players not using such methods”
Multiboxing gives you an advantage over other players not using it.
“Bots: that allows the automated control of a Game, or any other feature of the Platform, e.g. the automated control of a character in a Game”
Multiboxing gives you automated control over accounts you normally wouldn’t be able to control.
“Duplicated Items: Create, utilize or transact in any in-game item created or copied by exploiting a design flaw, undocumented problem, or program bug in the Platform.”
Mining nodes with a multiboxing army essentially duplicates the resource. Same thing when you loot anything tied to personal loot.
“Disruption / Harassment: Engage in any conduct intended to disrupt or diminish the game experience for other players”
What is more disrupting to gameplay than watching a train of multiboxed characters stomp you in open world PvP, tagging all the NPCs so you can’t kill any, manipulating the in game economy with loot generated faster than any solo player can farm on their own, or disrupting battlegrounds? In addition for multiboxing taking up more server space on servers than a regular player would on days high queues are needed to stabilize gameplay.
“Blizzard reserves the right to terminate this Agreement at any time for any reason, or for no reason, with or without notice to you. For purposes of explanation and not limitation, most Account suspensions and terminations are the result of violations of this Agreement.”
This basically just means anything else stated previously in the EULA is redundant and pointless because they can ban you at anytime for any reason they wish and there’s nothing you can do about it. So why people bring this crap up like it’s supposed to be some written in stone gospel of god is beyond me. The thing changes constantly and there’s never any formal or notarized signature between you and Blizzard for “agreeing” to it. What is okay one day may not be okay the next day.
The best way to ensure that it’s not something they’re okay with is if it negatively impacts their bottom line. Which is exactly what I’ve been saying in all my posts. So all you multiboxing heroes out there shouldn’t get too comfy. One day it may get to the point where there’s an uncomfortable ratio of multiboxing players and real players that discourages the real players from continuing to subscribe to their games. And that day is the day they cut all ties to the “method of play” you hold so dear.
