Diablo® III

So multiboxing is allowed??

Cyberbard.... Honest competition? If I wanted to stay ahead of the competition I would just use the Rmah or bot.

But as it sits right now im just enjoying playing the game.

There is no honor or FairPlay in diablo 3. The Rmah and bots saw to that?

There is no fair competion for me in this game as I don't use the Rmah or auction flip. So I play "solo" and when I save up some gold I buy an upgrade from the gah.

The ones ruining this game are the ones trying to pay the bills with or the ones bottling 24/7 or the ones duping/exploiting.

One of the worst things for the game is the amount of crying on these forums. Good way to drive people away from d3 before they even try it.

I'd rather someone play four character via multibox method than bot 4 characters 24/7 (there is a difference).

one does not simply launch 4 instances of Diablo 3 w/o 3rd party software on a single PC.

so yes it manipulates the Games by disabling the 1lunch-only-on-1 pc function.

While there are slim to no blue posts about Multiboxing on the D3 forums there is a plethera of information about it on the WoW forums.

Currently they are ok with Multiboxing

I hope this information is helpful


listen you dumb as@es, this is a WOW post NOT D3! Different games, diff rules!

Again find us quotes from the D3 forums of blue posts on the subject, I'd love to see them. Since Blizzard is the creator of both games, and with the absence of blue posts here, the only thing we have to go on is their stance on their other products.

Whether you like it or not the only opinion that matters is Blizzards. Not yours or anyone elses. They're fine with muliboxing so long as they are not breaking the conditions they set forth in those posts.

Now go outside and get some fresh air.

It forbids automation and 3rd party software which alters the gameplay experience. I'd say having a program let you play 4 characters at once, and get 4x loot and exp when you play fits both of those rule violations.

if you load 4 clients and run them yourself there is no software involved....

It forbids automation

Multiboxing isn't automation

The simultaneous use of multiple game clients and multiple accounts by the account holder of said accounts is fully allowed within the game Terms of Use as long as no actual automation is taking place (i.e. as long as one keypress only initiates one action per client).

Automation

Semantics issue #1:
Is using one keyboard to send signals to multiple instances of WoW automation?
In other words, what is the definition of automation as it applies to WoW?

"Using a keyboard setup like what you're describing? Not automation.

Setting up a macro with said keyboard that would, for example, automatically press Fireball each time it was available? Automation."

and 3rd party software which alters the gameplay experience.


3rd Party Software / Hardware

Semantics issue #2:
Software (such as Keyclone, Octopus, etc) to emulate a keyboard multiboxing solution is,
by nature, "3rd party". Is "3rd party software" synonymous with "bot" or "automation"?
Are all types of "3rd party software" bannable?
Likewise, hardware, by nature, is "3rd party". What kinds (or uses) of 3rd party hardware are bannable?

"Is it sending an identical signal to all client windows or switching between them to send commands? Not automation.

Is it playing the game for you, or rather, for one of your client windows? Automation.

All hardware is considered neutral as long as its commands and features are not being used to automate gameplay."

-Belfaire, Blizzard Poster [4]

Thanks, but we are very much aware of our policies and how these programs work, more so than most.

Multiboxing is not automation (Blizzards interpretation)
Multiboxing does not change the game experience (Blizzards interpretation)

Keep in mind that the game experience is that a player gets the standard amount of items. Each hero gets their own standard (although randomized) amount. Essentially it is like playing with 3 friends and at the end, each friend gives you all of the legendary items and rares that you wanted. The game experience is still intact, it just so happens you got loot from that.

With multiboxing, you are still getting one loot per hero; it just so happens you own the 3 other accounts. Game experience is still the same.

dont waste your breath they just dont get it... If someone wants to run 4 accounts and have there own private party so be it.. Hell i know some people in wow that used to power level themselves with more then 1 account.. There is no difference. Same person could multibox a 5 man without much issue.

The person in WoW doesn't get 4 times the loot for each monster killed.

The person in Diablo3 gets additional loot for each account he runs.

This is an EXTREME difference that can't be ignored.

The person multiboxing in wow gets access to loot that a person that doesnt multi would have to group and roll between all members for. Where as the person multiboxing wow gets all the loot and all the say and no one to compete with for rolls. Look at the open world PvP advantage multiboxing gives in WoW. Its still allowed.

The fight against multi boxing is one you lose. give up already lol

Multiboxing any game has its advantages and disadvantages.

But it is allowed.
