So I have just got back into d3 since the latest patches. I see people using MultiBoxing and loot alert programs. they Claim blizzard doesnt care... I don't beleive strangers. So is Multi boxing and loot alert allowed by blizzard and is it bannable.
any links by blizzard staff on the mattter or direct answer by blizzard staff would be greatly appreciated.
You agree that you will not, under any circumstances:
Any use of software that touches the game in any way (as noted above), could result in a ban if you are caught. Loot Alert falls into the category of third party software that touches the game. You will NEVER see Blizzard giving permission to use that, or any third party software. Ever. When asked, Blizz reps always link to the TOU.
Multi-boxing has been allowed on Battle.net in WoW for years, provided you are not using any automation software, or, for D3, macros. If you have the money to buy 4 PCs and 4 copies of the game knock yourself out. Most people do it with software that clones the keystrokes from one PC to the others. For those who are new to multi boxing, it just means that if you press "1" on one keyboard, it sends the same keystroke to the other computer with the other character. That exists external to the game and game files. WoW has some built in follow functions and macros so is far friendlier for multi-boxers to use. D3 does not and macros are not allowed so if you use any third party software to make it easier that could get you banned.
All that said, this is Blizzard's game and the TOU has a provision for them to change the rules and to ban a player at any time.
They allow multiboxing. Loot Alert technically falls into the category of bannable, but I don't believe they have actually banned anyone for it yet. There was a blue post stating that they weren't taking an official stance on it, and if you use it it's at your own risk. That post has since been removed.
thanks guys! i'll stay away from BOTH.
