I wanted to first thank you for taking the time to review my concerns/requests. Along with every other player I am aware of the recent changes to the input broadcasting software/hardware policy made by the developers. There is a large community was alienated and discarded by these changes even though the stated change was to mitigate botters and automation (bots are going to bot regardless of these changes).
I have been an active subscriber but not always an active player (we do take breaks lol) of World of Warcraft for a long time. I cannot even begin to describe how disappointed I am in the way that it is being managed. I have grown to really like the style of Multibox game play. This could have been handled in a much different fashion and I still have hope that your developers will come to their senses.
It is my opinion that the pendulum swung way to far. Anyone who multiboxes knows how challenging it is to push higher level content on your own with game play becoming more skilled over time, but we choose to do that because of that challenge and various other reasons such as personal time constraints. But you effectively took away the tools necessary to achieve this. It would be nice if Blizzard continued to allow the use of input broadcasting software/hardware and went after botters specifically.
I can only imagine there are so many other ways to do this other than the recent announcement. The ability to flag as a Multiboxer or have a separate set of rules when logged into multiple accounts. I do not think I ever enjoyed WoW as much as I did while multiboxing than at any other time and I find it very unfortunate this is the stance blizzard has taken. The developers of various broadcasting software have reached out to your company without response. I have read the input broadcast post in its entirety, and I know that multiboxing is still okay, but you have effectively removed our end game content which is sad.
For the record I am completely against PVP grieving but defending yourself if attacked first should be a no brainer. I am also against standstill farming. I also disagree that Multiboxing yields an economic advantage. If you have more characters, you need more resources to support those characters. You all need to do something different than you have. I really do wish a developer would see the overcorrection and make additional adjustments to the current policies. There is a better way! And I have faith in your team to be able to figure out that better way.
