So to recap, Droth actually has no idea what's allowed and what isn't, but told us what's allowed and what isn't anyway?
No, I know exactly what the rules are.
It has been clarified that time delay macros, looped macros, and mouse macros are all considered automation and if found to be in use will result in a closure of your account.
The only thing is I cannot provide you with that in a blue font. I have asked and hopefully it is provided publicly.
11/21/2012 09:38 AMMore misinformation from drothgayder. Don't take any of his advice seriously. You can get banned and probably will get banned for anything you do to automate gameplay. G keyboard macro software creates scripts even if you tell it just to assign one button to it. Why do you think it needs third party software. IT IS AUTOMATION USER ACTIONS. don't take the risk unless your ok with being banned even if MVP douchebag here says its ok

You misquote me yet again. Your strong suit.
I said it was ok to use those macros keys to assign buttons to them. The only way you can do that is to actually create a macro and assign an actual keystroke found on a normal keyboard.
Secondly, ALL drivers are considered 3rd party software. Your OS is 3rd party, your peripherals are 3rd party. Everything inside of your computer is 3rd party... everything attached to it... everything installed...
Not once did I say it was ok to automate. I simply said it was perfectly fine for you to assign single keystrokes to those buttons and use them in game. I cannot use my Sidewinder keys in game without doing this either.
Lastly, I also know FOR A FACT that simply having those drivers installed is perfectly fine AS LONG as you're not doing anything that's considered automation.
My ignore list must have been purged somehow. I think I might reconsider using it again.
MVP's are not employees of Blizzard Entertainment. We are players just like you.
Nothing I say is Official word from Blizzard, everything is of my own conjecture.
