Whats fair about getting hit by four toons in perfect synchronization? Game is over after the 2nd hit because 2 of your team are lying face down. Ive had the unfortunate experience of being 1shot killed by Zin and his "box" (Azin, Xzin....). Boxing, IMHO, would seem to violate rule c4 of the Rules of Conduct... "Using or exploiting errors in design, features which have not been documented, and/or "program bugs" to gain access that is otherwise not available, or to obtain a competitive advantage over other players".

What undocumented feature or bug is he exploiting, exactly? he has 5 computers. He rapidly switches between 5 wireless keyboards. He uses in-game macros.

It is an exploit, because four regular players can't achieve the synchronization that multiboxing achieves via a third-party program sending its input to other accounts.

You can do it with 4 players. Use in-game voice chat, and have somebody yell an enemy's name, then say "Go!" On go, everybody casts a chain lightning on that enemy. Bam, people will think you're multiboxing.

"He rapidly switches between 5 wireless keyboards."*cough* LOL?You have no friggin idea what you are talking about, have you? You can connect one keyboard and one mouse to several computers at the same time. He presses 'space' on the keyboard, all five characters jump. He presses his main attack keybind, the main character starts casting Chain Lightning, the other three element shammies activate the macro to assist him and cast CL as well, while the resto casts a chain heal. Easy as pie,. The hard part about multi-boxing is having the dough for it, and the devotion to do it, As for being an exploit - You guys are just envious that you can't do what he can do. Get your heads outta yer asses and wake up. This is NOT an exploit, that is Blizzard's OFFICIAL stand in the matter. http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=2856144935&postId=29491813990&sid=1#16http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=5288579356&pageNo=1&sid=1#2

he is NOT switching between 5 keyboards!!!!! all four toons cast at the exact same time time. i would say he has one keyboard and mouse tied to 4 boxes. which is why they are all the same class. id be impressed if they were all different classes or even 2. imho this guy is just another loser who figured out how to use his money to gain an advantage. ban-hammer this sucka!!!!
