  I would also add that while the Devs might be frowning till their eye brows reach their chins, they often say it is completly within the ToS or EULA or whatever. Atleast until their customers start leaving in droves.

  Basicly its a cost benefit analysis going on.. when will it cost less to fix a mechanic or enforce a policy. And sometimes it is individual GMs making policy as they decide what is banable and what isnt.




What game had a sudden drop in population because of multi boxing?

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

There's a tipping point where multiboxing is so widespread that they will never do anything to hurt multiboxers.

In Everquest multiboxing is so widespread (50% or more are multiboxers) that not allowing it would cut in their proftis way too much

As far as multiboxing, multiboxing hurts everyone except the people who multibox, from the market to the game balance, PVP, etc

Many MMO use Gameguard and hackshield.

... Pull up the terms of service of a game in which it explicitly says that. I'll be here waiting to see proof from a game.

According to your logic, if you are logged on a game on two computers, that would be bypassing anti-hack software. A VM (or a different computer as it acts) is NOT bypassing the anti-hack software, its using it on another system thus not disrupting it. 

 

Try not and have a course tone with someone as if they are stupid, its quite rude. Just since I make a point you are not fond of doesn't mean you need to act hostile towards me.

 

 

 

With all due respect, this person isnt using multiple computers. This person, is violating the TOS with 3rd party software which is against the Terms of Service agreement. Pressing 1 button, causes 10+ characters to act in unison, be it movement, or using predetermined skill sets.

Exploit.

Have you sent in a message to them, asking them if this was a cheat? and what their stand is? Because i have. And they told me as long as some one is behind the wheel, it doesn't count as an exploint. Also i watched that video. Did you see the players that rush him knowing they would going to die? They are called bots, and yet you say nothing about them?

I have also faced a 6 person boxer and beat them, take out the leader the others fall. I think basically you cant beat them, so you are complaining. End of story, end of post

Seeing so many tears here about it i love it.

Fine, we'll compromise. I'll get my way & you'll find a way to be okay with that.

Glad you brought this up. THIS wasnt a multibox issue, this was an issue where the diminishing return from killing a specivic player would reset by trading kills due to a bug, which.. Funcom fixed by resetting most of these exploiters pvp xp and levels to 0 and took away every single pvp assosiated piece of gear.

#1 The players rushing him and dieing are not bots. Those are players that are getting killed in one GCD. This is something even the most elite of premades cannot coordinate. Nobody, anywhere, can fire off exact same abilities at the exact same second across 10+ different players.

 

#2 You have faced a 6 person box and beat them, taking out the leader makes the others fall? Apparently you didnt watch the video or you use crap multiboxing software. After the first dies its extremely simple and easy to switch to box 2 in the blink of an eye. You think bascially i cant beat them so i complain? I would like to see you beat something that kills you in one GCD. Tell me, exactly, how you would react or defend when after one skill press and you are dead.

 

#3 No, it isnt the end of story, or the end of the post.

Its kind of pathetic people even defend this style of play. It really shows you where this genre is headed and if it stays in that direction MMORPGs will cease to exist because absolutely nobody will play them.

Proper aim in an FPS can lead to a one shot kill which definitely correlates with player skill and muscle coordination. One shot kills in a tab target MMORPG are absolutely retarded.

was playing RIFT yesterday doing a zone event and there was a guy with literally 10 characters.  Dropped the zone boss in like 2 seconds, it was ridiculous.  Saying it doesn't affect PvE is also wrong.

Im reserving my feelings towards multu-boxing for myself but as ussual the youtube linked doesnt show the problem with Multi-boxing. its those 1-2 players running into a full group and die, wether 5-6 seperate players wont coordinate is besides the point, these players would have died ratther fast even if it was a group of seperate players.

2nd you are right, seperate players wont coordinate as well timed as a multiboxer but with the proper macros you can get darn close to it.

As for the guy who was griping about a world boss dieing rediculas fast.. again with 10-11 simular geared players would have died just as fast..

They may not call it an exploit, but I would and I would not support a company that allows it.  How many players like me can they afford to lose?  Some gaming companies have the smarts to nip this sort of thing in the bud, knowing from the get go, just how much it can cost them subscribers / cash shoppers.  I used to respect Trion, but after the Defiance fiasco and now this, I have very little interest in patronizing them now or in the future.

I have waited for this post to go a ways before I put some input to it.  I believe you the OP have experienced fighting a match in pvp with someone who is botting. For as long as mmos have been around botting has been a part of them. From Asherons Call to EQ to SWG, DAOC WOW, EQII, there have always been bots. The reasoning for them differ. Anyone who has botted has done so for a specific reason. In EQI botting takes place not because the botter is trying to take advantage of someone else. But in part because at lower levels finding a group is difficult. In Dark Age of Camelot Realm vs Realm brought botters specifically to buff his or her main. These are just examples.

 

While I personally do not promote botting. Saying it is a exploit is completely out of bounds. Now to Rift. I dont bot in Rift. I have multiple characters and see no point in botting. In pvp botters would not like to meet me. As I am whats called a minimaxer. I believe you are fairly new to Rift. Complaining about someone who is botting will have little effect of it changing. What you can do is learn how to best effectively play and equip you character. Rift is a somewhat gear centric game.

Also, instead of worrying what(X) player/players have or dont have. I would stick to worrying about yourself. Having friends in game is very important. A good guild, a good social network.  People to enjoy the game with. Having that enhances your game experience. Makes those pvp battle much more fun when you have partners with you.

I would not worry so much about a botter. In my case a botter usually means stacking my stats. I would think about getting your characters to that point. As the reality is its your character/characters. What you make of them and the environment around you is up to you. Complaining really does you or anyone else no good. Take advantage of the situation to better your characters.

 

Hope you take my advice to its fullest extent. Good Luck!

It's been like this in quite a few games. The thing is, it isn't that easy to be good at multiboxing. You have to have the characters set up properly to even do anything in pvp, usually if a group of people is as large as the persons multiboxing group then the players will win over them, simply becuase while multiboxing you can't really react to certain situations that well because you can't take control of characters like a team with individual players can, you just have to spam a button and hope one of your characters can land it. 

 

In wow there was a 40 boxer on my server, named aredone. He ended up leaving becuase he was constantly getting annihilated by groups less than his 40 man group. I'm not saying it's fair in lower amounts of people, but I'm saying it shouldn't be that big of an issue. Every game has multiboxers, there are people who thrive on that kind of stuff. It isn't exploiting, it's just multitasking with a program, and at the same time people sometimes treat it like botting. Which is arguable to whether or not it is, but in my opinion it isn't. Simply because it is really not all that viable. 

In the MMO I play the most Lineage 2, multiboxing has been pretty much a necessity because of buffer classes, but it isn't like this. Usually someone would have 1 character they play, and 3 buffers that he would idle somewhere else and run back to when he was needing more buffs.

 

It does look like he is playing all the same class, so I'm sure if you had people working together it wouldn't be all that hard to take him down.

In case anyone else is interested--as I was--on how this issue was "resolved," they removed the auto-follow ability from PVP scenarios and Warfronts.

It doesn't eliminate multiboxing from PVP since it just makes it a tiny bit more difficult to get all your characters in position. But once you have them all where you want them, you can still fire off your 10 nukes from 10 characters with just one key press.

At least its some recognition that there is a problem.
