Although Blizzard has tightened the guidelines for using software that can mirror keyboard commands on multiple WoW clients, multiboxing is still allowed. The developers have now made this clear in another post.
Multiboxers belong to WoW like Sturmwind and Orgrimmar. Whether in Battle for Azeroth or in WoW Classic – everywhere you see the small groups from mostly the same classes roaming the country picking herbs or attacking and knocking players from the other faction. So that several characters can be coordinated so well, many multiboxers use special software that transmits their keystrokes to several clients. So all characters do exactly the same thing. This type of software has now been banned by Blizzard. Those who use such programs run the risk of being punished for it.
In one Blizzard has another post But now it has been made clear that the actual multiboxing is still allowed. Every player is still free to have several WoW accounts and to use them at the same time. Only the automated programs are prohibited.
For more information on our stance about input broadcasting software, see our official news post.
With this, Blizzard announces to a certain extent that it will in future keep a keen eye on where the inputs come from that the WoW client processes. In the first place, it should probably not be so much about the multiboxers, which have a significant influence on the economy in the game due to the way they play. Because cheat and bot programs also use the technology to feed the client with keyboard commands that do not come from a manually operated keyboard. When tracking down cheats and bots, the developers no longer need to distinguish whether someone is really botting or just using a program for multiboxing – both will then be punished.
Most players, on the other hand, should simply be happy that multiboxers, even if it is still allowed, will probably be less common in the future. Because controlling several characters "by hand" is probably more laborious than with one program.
