One of the most popular players in my realm (Uldaman) got banned today for botting. I guess it was for this, there are no details. It sucks, I liked the guy, but cheating is cheating.The one thing that I REALLY hate, which apparently is legal, is multiboxing. Actually owning multiple legal accounts, and controlling characters on each account simutaneously. A Horde player on our server does this. Every 70 Ally knows his name. and we can't do anything about it. It's frustrating as hell trying to defend RH and seeing him rolling up on you.These ppl really need a life.

Just trap/fear one or two of his toons and take them out. Easy as pie.

So how does someone who splits their attention between 2 accounts cause you grief?Your response is exactly what's wrong with people today. Rather than enjoying your little corner of the world you have to focus on what someone else is doing. Mind your own freaking business and you'll stop gathering ulcers.Someone's running a bot? So what? Blizz will deal with them - not you (unless you actually work for Blizz in which case I say GBTW). Someone's got 2 accounts and 2 computers? Unless they're making you run on a treadmill to power the computers or something you have no reason to "do anything about it".I find your statement about needing to get a life highly ironic.You want to get vitriolic about something? Try something important like the economy, our government, or the war.

when 4 elemental shamans pick you out at exactly the same moment, simultaneously cast lightning bolts which land for no less than 2k each, and then simultaneously cast 4 earth shocks at you, it's a bit unfair. (aelli, i'm callin you out, bro.)sure, 4 people working together could do the same, but can you imagine the level of teamwork and coordination that requires? i've multi-boxed (to level 8, don't yell at me) and it's literally as easy as pushing a button to vaporize whatever you're looking at.

Multiboxing also requires a great deal of practice, hardware and devotion to develop the macros (which are legal) and configure the software to make it all work correctly.I've been multiboxing myself recently as one of my IRL friends does not have time to level but wants to continue with us into dungeons. He only gets to play once a week. He's a skilled player, he just lacks time.As for me, it allows me to use his character to heal mine so I can actually level prot, and get more experience at AoE tanking. It's extremely challenging and engaging and has made old world Azeroth a fun experience instead of drugery.Point and click destruction problems? You must be talking about PvP and multiboxing (which, seriously, those guys must be amazing). If -any-thing goes wrong while multiboxing, you die, your other characters die, and sometimes you can scrouge an escape or last minute win as you frantically try to switch screens and action bars to continue the battle.Seriously. Fear bomb them and see the chaos that will ensue.
