ISBoxer has been used in World of Warcraft for well over a decade. Multiboxing has been allowed in World of Warcraft since virtually its inception.
ISBoxer isn’t automation. It allows for key replication for keystrokes. You may deem it as automation as much as you’d like to, but the reality is that Blizzard allows it and has always allowed it. It’s not some gray area that they haven’t touched base on, they’ve known about third party apps like this since they’ve been released over a decade ago.
In fact, one of Blizzard’s very own FAQ’s refers players to a third-party site that gives more info on how to inquire about third party apps for multiboxing.
More people seem to be complaining about it lately probably because of the Brutosaur mount. That’s why you probably see a lot more people multiboxing now than previously.
Blizzard isn’t going to magically stop allowing multiboxing or third party apps that allow key cloning or replication. It’s not against their own terms of service.
They allow it. There have been false positives of multi-boxers being suspended, but it doesn’t happen that often.
I’ve been multiboxing for months using ISBoxer third party app. I’ll say it freely on here. I’m not breaking any terms of my digital agreement with Blizzard/Activision. I am playing in adherence to their own terms and conditions.
People might huff and puff at people like me, but I honestly stopped caring what people thought years ago. I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since I was in my twenties, I’m now in my 40’s. Multi-boxing has been allowed through that lifespan of my life… it’s not going to be disallowed because some people don’t like it.
It’s not hard to make gold or one up the multiboxers. Buy low, sell high in bulk. I do it all the time and make tons of gold. Even before I multiboxed I never had any issues making gold at will.
I don’t PVP or do any competitive gaming. I run myself through old dungeons, raids, world bosses, weekly events like visions and the 2000 gold a pop chance for the events in Uldum and Vale.
I don’t harrass people, I don’t take over big areas of the game and kill mobs until my fingers are red. I don’t farm mobs, I play the auction house. It’s what I enjoy doing.
People getting up-in-arms about multiboxing and third party apps like ISBoxer isn’t something new. It’s happened since I was in my 20s, still hear the same yammering in my 40’s.
I freely admit to multi-boxing and I’m sure people will say I’m an idiot, or my username sucks or that I don’t play according to their standards, so I’m a cheater or a loser. Cool… I… am… having fun and it’s allowed by Blizzard, so try and rain on my parade all you want, I have my hefty umbrella wielded and ready at all times.
It’s your right to not like multiboxing. It’s your right to show your disdain for it on the forum. That’s what the forum is for… for discussions about the games many different topics. We don’t have to agree and that’s fine by me. I’m not making claims that I’m right and every one else is wrong, I’m just stating facts… the facts are that it is allowed by Blizzard 100% and the fact is I enjoy multiboxing. Those are facts I’m not ashamed of… one single bit. Period.
