Ok, many many threads on if autohotkey is bannable or not. The answer seemingly is yes, under certain situations.
I cant find the blue post but I remember reading that one issue was mapping one key to multiple actions (so, pressing 1=sending 1,2,3 would be bad), but that in gerneral macros themselves arent considered automatic bans.
In lieu of that, I made an AHK script that repeats 1-2-3 ONLY if you have all the buttons pressed down at once. I made the timeouts basically duplicate the speed at which I'm able to mash 1-2-3 while playing (tested with stopwatch and notepad). Tell me what you think:
Of course, use at your own risk.

No official bans have gone out for AHK, but it is most definitely bannable. However, pretty much all CM's have said it's not worth getting CTS for a game and are running it.
inb4 long AHK debate
But saying that it is 'most definitely bannable' is simply too strong a statement for the information we have at this time. It is a program that replicates the functionality of an 'Official' Diablo 3 gaming mouse, whether or not this is relevant is unknown. And that is the whole point...the current stance on this is unknown since we have no confirmed bans due to it.
Therefore it is not 'most definitely bannable', it is just unknown.
By leaving it in that gray area, they are 100% able to ban you if they decide to, however they haven't decided to yet. This makes it "most definitely bannable," however as I said, will they do it? probably not. Wiping out a whole class community would be bad PR.
Ahh, you actually meant what you said, in the way that you phrased it. That is so odd nowadays, and I stand corrected.
Definitely banable, as in something that they have the leeway to ban for if they so choose to do so. As opposed to something that they will ban for.
I wonder whether it would fit better under automation or as an unauthorized version of their gaming mouse functionality. Whether or not it is 'fair' to ban for it is a separate issue from whether or not they have the TOS freedom to do it and keep a monopoly on that functionality to their mouse.

I posted something about this in the General Discussion thread to hopefully get a clear answer on it all.
IMO: This should NOT be a banable offense. The build will see plenty of play no matter what, but who wants to get CTS over a game?
