Blizzard Starting to Send Out Bans to Multiboxers Using Input Broadcasting Software
Following the recent announcement that Blizzard has
updated their policies
to take actionable offense against input broadcasting software, Blizzard is now banning multiboxers that remain in violation of the terms of service.
LetMeSpoilThisForU on the Classic subreddit shared an image from the Earthshaker (EU) discord of a popular multiboxer's banned accounts.
was posted on the Earthshaker (EU) discord.
The guy is a well known 20+ char multiboxer on that server who just got all of his chars perma banned. The pic only shows 8 of his accounts, but he said its all of them. He obviously didnt want to stop using keystroke replicating software, so blizz just acted.
If you also got people like this on your server, keep reporting, blizzard is actually doing something against them now.
A few days ago, we reported that
Blizzard sent warnings out
and it looks like things are escalating quickly. While multiboxing is not against the Terms of Service as
Blizzard recently clarified
using input broadcasting software to command multiple accounts at the same time is. Multiboxers will need to adapt to other methods as Blizzard is making good on their promises to issue bans.
Here's Blizzard's exact policy below:
As World of Warcraft has evolved, our policies have also evolved to support the health of the game and the needs of the players. We’ve examined the use of third-party input broadcasting software, which allows a single keystroke or action to be automatically mirrored to multiple game clients, and we've seen an increasingly negative impact to the game as this software is used to support botting and automated gameplay. The use of input broadcasting software that mirrors keystrokes to multiple WoW game clients will soon be considered an actionable offense. We believe this policy is in the best interests of the game and the community.
We will soon begin issuing warnings to all players who are detected using input broadcasting software to mirror commands to multiple accounts at the same time (often used for multi-boxing). With these warnings, we intend to notify players that they should not use this software while playing World of Warcraft. Soon thereafter, the warnings will escalate to account actions, which can include suspension and, if necessary, permanent closure of the player's World of Warcraft account(s). We strongly advise you to cease using this type of software immediately to maintain uninterrupted access to World of Warcraft.
Thank you for your understanding.
