It's flamebait but it reeks of what most people "see" which is two computers - oh well they must be botting on one. Which is entirely not the case. You have a different play style of course when you are 5 boxing and yes, it does look a bit odd.But still - botting and multiboxing are NOT the same thing. I encourage you to take a look at exactly what goes into a typical 5 boxing setup. sure, the $5,000 or so for starters but then you need to think about cooling your computers, how to power that many, monthly fees, setting up macros, custom UIs, custom keyboards, etc. Some people restore cars, some go boating, some play WoW. I choose to play WoW in my spare time and I enjoy the challenge of making all of these complex things function together. Sure, enjoy playing too - but the process of figuring it all out and putting it all together is also quite enjoyable as well.Seriously though - don't expect every single player to be 5 boxing anytime soon. Even dual boxing, while much easier to do - is still quite involved to do with any reasonable skill - and some classes just do NOT lend themselves to boxing very well in combination.So, a bit of sensationalism going on here for sure but I do urge people to avoid jumping to conclusions without understanding everything that goes into 5 boxing.
