More Multiboxing Drama in WoW

Recommended Posts

15102-more-multiboxing-drama-in-wow.jpg

Oh yes, it's that time of year again. More drama surrounding the same multiboxer as before!

 

For those of you that aren't aware, there has been huge uproar surrounding a single player, who controls 60 accounts at the same time. He has been camping certain areas on the Emerald Dream RP realm, killing all the NPCs and essentially lagging out the area. Players complained on a number of channels, but nothing was done. 

 

It seems like this has gone straight to the head of the player, since he has now begun reporting people for fun. A video from his stream shows him dead after being killed by a group of Alliance. He then proceeds to report people for a "non-RP name on an RP server", despite his characters having names such as Hunteleven, Drutwo and Magone.

 

A thread on Reddit has erupted over this new revelation, with over 750 comments flowing in extremely quickly. It seems like it's just going to continue climbing. The community is becoming increasingly fed up with the antics of the player and it will be interesting to see how Blizzard deals with this.

 

One of the comments on the threads relates to the fact that, for some reason, Blizzard only allow such extreme cases of multiboxing on the US servers. Within the EU EULA, there is a section that reads:

 

"The maximum number of Accounts that a person may register on the Service is limited to no more than three (3) Accounts." (source)

 

This section was actually removed from the US EULA sometime towards the end of 2015, hence why this player can do what he does. Will Blizzard re-instate this section for the US players, or will they continue to allow the player to mass report people for no reason?

Hi, I'd like to start off by saying that I'm a multiboxer myself, but I'm not replying here to defend against the mass-multiboxer in question. I'd just like to clear up a few things that are/were happening, and are mentioned in this article.

 

It seems like this has gone straight to the head of the player, since he has now begun reporting people for fun. A video from his stream shows him dead after being killed by a group of Alliance. He then proceeds to report people for a "non-RP name on an RP server", despite his characters having names such as Hunteleven, Drutwo and Magone.

The character he reported the player from was on Darkspear. You can see that there is an asterisk next to reported player's name on their unit frame because the character was from Emerald Dream, and he was on his character from Darkspear.

The large-scale multiboxer also has characters on Emerald Dream, yes, but most of them have already been flagged for a name change at this point in time.

Whether he reported the player "for fun" or whether the name reported was RP-compliant or not, are both debatable. I'll also point out that you use the word "people" twice in your article, yet only one single player was reported in the video.

 

One of the comments on the threads relates to the fact that, for some reason, Blizzard only allow such extreme cases of multiboxing on the US servers. Within the EU EULA, there is a section that reads:

 

"The maximum number of Accounts that a person may register on the Service is limited to no more than three (3) Accounts." (source)

This section was actually removed from the US EULA sometime towards the end of 2015, hence why this player can do what he does. Will Blizzard re-instate this section for the US players, or will they continue to allow the player to mass report people for no reason?

The section was not removed from the US EULA, it was amended to reflect what it really meant:

 

D. Game and Battle.net Features.

i. Battle.net Features:

2. Battle.net Balance:

As an active Account holder, you may participate in Blizzard’s Battle.net Balance service (“Battle.net Balance”). Battle.net Balance can only be used to obtain certain products and services offered by Blizzard; it has no cash value. Blizzard grants you a limited license to acquire, use, and redeem Battle.net Balance pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. Regardless of how it is acquired, Battle.net Balance is non-transferable to another person or Account, does not accrue interest, is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and, unless otherwise required by law or permitted by this Agreement, is not redeemable or refundable for any sum of money or monetary value from Blizzard at any time. Battle.net Balance does not constitute a personal property right. Battle.net Balance is not a bank account. And, while you can register and play on multiple Accounts, you are not allowed to have more than three (3) Accounts with Battle.net Balance.

Vrakthris, over on the Blizzard Customer Support forum, also recently commented on this:

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/19973187263?page=1#2

The EU EULA has not been updated to reflect that change because over in the EU, there is at least one large-scale multiboxer who has been playing with more than three BNet accounts for some time. He's also been reported a lot, and has never had any action taken against him because of it. Here is a video from 2014 showing the player speak directly with a GM about how many reports have been submitted about him, and while the video only shows he has 24 characters, he has since increased his numbers beyond 30, as can be seen in his more recent videos.

I point this out specifically because if the EULA in the EU actually meant BNet accounts, and not BNet accounts with BNet Balance on them, then the EU mass-multiboxer would have been told he couldn't use more than three BNet accounts.

I'll also point out that there are plenty of people 4-boxing Diablo III in the EU, which would require four BNet accounts seeing as you can only have one D3 license per BNet account, and there is no known action that has been taken against any D3 multiboxer in the EU because of this particular line in the EU EULA.

Ultimately, what I'm getting at is if people want to "fight the fight" against this particular person mentioned in your article (or mass-multiboxing in general), then you have to do it correctly. Creating a mass of misinformed people who are going to turn around and spread that misinformation to others, as well as create misinformed threads on Blizzard's forum is not the way to go about it.

Thanks for the reply, just a question about your comment regarding the EU EULA.

 

If it is that they simply haven't updated it to its "true" meaning, how can it take 12-14 months to make the same changes to the EU document? Since those changes took place around November 2014-January 2015, surely they can just as easily change it on the EU EULA?

 

They very specifically state numerous times that they can change it whenever they wish, so why is that still in the EU terms and not the US, if it is that this is the true meaning?

 

In regards to the player and reports, he has on numerous occasions reported people on stream, such as Malseph, after being wiped by them. He claims to be reporting them for crashing the server, yet as you can see from numerous videos, everywhere he goes there is server lag. The multiboxer in the first article and server lag are like fish and chips, they go hand-in-hand. I was simply referencing the video that was found in the Reddit thread, hence the single report.

 

In regards to the GM conversation, surely one GM doesn't represent Blizzard's ruleset? Look at the countless times that GMs have told players certain programs that alter visuals aren't a reason to be banned, yet plenty of others have said it's a third party program and therefore is grounds for being banned.

 

My point in this article, while perhaps not articulated properly, was to address the fact that the multiboxer is going out of his way to ruin the provided service. His army of characters is essentially a raid boss when they enter a town, but when Method downed Archimonde, do you think Archimonde put his hands up, laughed and crashed the server? Archimonde doesn't die and then stay dead, letting us loot him while he reports the raid group, does he?

 

He goes out of his way to deny the service of playing to others, not by killing them, but by making areas of the game completely impossible to play in. There are plenty of multiboxers out there that do what they do, but they don't go out of their way to crash the surrounding zone.

Sure, they can change it whenever they'd like, but documents that sit in a dark corner of the site can easily be neglected when it comes to being updated—no matter how important, legally, they may be. The US EULA was not updated for quite some time (months) to reflect that it was specifically aimed at BNet Balance, and not strictly having BNet accounts in one's name.

I don't have the answers to your "if-why" questions and we can go back and forth on those all day long, but I imagine that the EU Blizzard Customer Support forum reps can assist with this. I don't have an EU account to ask, but anyone who does is more than welcome to create a thread in reference to that one line in the EU EULA for clarification on the matter. I'll also post a thread on the US site to see if they can give some insight as to why the EU EULA gives a general statement, when the US one does not.

 

In regards to the player and reports, he has on numerous occasions reported people on stream, such as Malseph, after being wiped by them. He claims to be reporting them for crashing the server, yet as you can see from numerous videos, everywhere he goes there is server lag. The multiboxer in the first article and server lag are like fish and chips, they go hand-in-hand. I was simply referencing the video that was found in the Reddit thread, hence the single report.

I've been following (from the outside) most of what has been happening on Emerald Dream because it bothers me that one of the things that I like to do in WoW could be in jeopardy due to the behavior of a few toxic individuals. The entire situation is a very convoluted story of he-said she-said, and neither side is innocent when it comes to who is to blame for whatever is supposedly happening.

However, the flip side to this is that there are plenty of times where people do band together, fight the mass multiboxer, and win (and then proceed to camp him). Blizzard has always taken a "find a PvP solution to your PvP problem" stance when it comes to world PvP, and people are indeed showing that there is a solution to this supposed problem. So, should Blizzard intervene when there is a player-solution that has been demonstrated time and time again? I certainly don't have the answer.

Also, for the record, Vrakthris has confirmed that the server is not crashing.

 

In regards to the GM conversation, surely one GM doesn't represent Blizzard's ruleset? Look at the countless times that GMs have told players certain programs that alter visuals aren't a reason to be banned, yet plenty of others have said it's a third party program and therefore is grounds for being banned.

The video I linked with the GM conversation is 1.5 years old. In the past 1.5 years, I'm sure there have been more than enough GMs who have reviewed tickets that were submitted against the EU large-scale multiboxer, and if he was doing anything wrong in terms of breaking the EULA, then action would have been taken against him.

 

My point in this article, while perhaps not articulated properly, was to address the fact that the multiboxer is going out of his way to ruin the provided service. His army of characters is essentially a raid boss when they enter a town, but when Method downed Archimonde, do you think Archimonde put his hands up, laughed and crashed the server? Archimonde doesn't die and then stay dead, letting us loot him while he reports the raid group, does he?

As I stated in my first reply, I'm not here to defend him, or others, who partake in any sort of toxic, or disruptive behavior in the game , but when people see the word "multiboxer," they then tend to associate one multiboxer's actions with all multiboxer's actions, when in reality, there must be less than fifteen people, globally, who play more than 15-20 accounts, in World of Warcraft. However, I will also say that this person in question has been playing 40+ accounts since the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, and Blizzard is well aware of him as a player.

EDIT: Removed an unnecessary apostrophe.

Just for anyone reading the comments here, please don't take this article/discussion as a slight on multiboxers in general. I never intended it to be so.

Just in regards to the comment from Vrakthris, doesn't it seem strange that the multiboxer in question brings incredible lag wherever he goes, to the extent that those around him will mass-disconnect? I'm not an expert on this matter, I'm by no means amazing at understanding how the servers actually work, but it just seems strange that people around him consistently disconnect. There are plenty of multiboxers that I enjoy watching that have previously never seen problems with disconnecting and such, yet when they turn up to see the multiboxer in question, it seems like they immediately have problems.

 

All I can say is, I have no problem with people multiboxing, but I do think he is taking it too far. Not in regards to the number of accounts, but the manner in which he plays. The things that he does are specifically set out to grief players. There are plenty of instances of world PvP in which streamers have gathered up large forces to battle multiboxing gankers; it turns out to be one of the most amazing things to watch, yet there is no crashing, no grief, just simple, raw, world PvP fun.

To actively sit inside one of the busier areas of the expansion and purposefully drop the most intense spells/toys whatever to cause those around you to "lag", that's what I think should be bannable. Not multiboxing.

 

Edit: Also, just to say, watching his stream is beginning to indicate that he really does think he is "god". That he is immune from punishment due to the amount of money he spends, so he doesn't care what he does.

I hope I'm not talking down... hope also I'm not talking out of my butt. But these are the various issues at play, as I understand them.

 

The server's stability is how it handles all the information coming from and going to the individual clients, and the math necessary for running the game. If it's not crashing, then nothing being done is overwhelming to it.

 

Lag is traffic between your computer and the server, like the streets between you and your local store. Traffic can be hell at any point in between, but both ends be quiet and clear.

 

FPS is your computer's ability to handle the incoming and outgoing data. This sounds like the most likely culprit, many users with computers that aren't able to handle and render THAT MUCH data, especially keeping up with its constant motion. It's why a lot of people have problems with large raid groups, particularly in combat, and why Blizzard is trying to suppress effects from others' spells and abilities while enhancing your own. If your system is so bogged down it can no longer communicate with the game server, it gets disconnected.

 

I have a decent gaming rig with video that was well prepared for WoD and raiding, but the screenshot you posted above would very likely bring my system to single-digit FPS, making it stutter and perhaps disconnect.

You have a general idea of what involves the stability of a server, but are wrong of what lag and fps means.

 

We talk about LAG (Network Lag) when there's a significant delay between a server and a client. This can happen because of packet loss, slow connections or low line quality.

 

FPS simply means Frames Per Seconds. It's the amount of frames that your video card is displaying every second. For modern video games on PC, the acceptable amount of frames before your eyes begin to notice a delay is 60FPS. Some people don't notice a drop between 50-60 FPS, but most people notice choppiness from 39FPS and below.

 

FPS and LAG are not tied at all. You can have 10FPS and very stable latency of 100ms, you can also have more than 60FPS and random disconnects or actual LAG (more than 299ms).

 

What these people are expriencing is disconnects from packet loss. The server is sending more data than what the clients can handle (because there's too much stuff happening at the same time). Their computers simply drop the packets they can't handle and these packets are sent again by the server. This creates LAG and eventually a disconnect. A really good internet connection with a good computer could handle this, but not everyone has access to that. This player obviously has a lot of money, specialized equipment and of course a good internet connection. He uses that advantage to abuse and ruin other players experiences and I bet you he's completely aware of what he's doing.

 

Blizzard didn't design these areas to handle that amount of players with that many concurrent connections. That's why they had to implement phasing and to some extent, cross-realms. Isle of Giants anyone?

      Visions of N'Zoth is Battle for Azeroth's final major content patch where we take the battle to N'Zoth himself and visit Ny'alotha. Our hub covers everything important you need to know about Patch 8.3 and helps you stay on track if you haven't been playing the game for a while.
      Patch 8.3 Release Date
      While nothing has been officially confirmed, we think the patch is going to hit live servers in December 2019. Datamined sound files suggest that Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid might be delayed until Patch 8.3.5 and not open immediately when Visions of N'Zoth goes live, which would delay the new Mythic+ Season as well.
      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas talked about Visions of N'Zoth in the latest Content Preview on October 7. We learned pretty much everything about the new patch and in the following section, you're going to find its main features:
      Assaults
      Invasions return to the game once more, and this time, they're called Assaults. The Vale of Eternal Blossoms and Uldum will be periodically under assault by N'Zoth's forces and your goal is to drive them back by completing quests and interacting with various objectives to complete the "emissary". Blizzard uses technology and everything they've learned from Mechagon and Nazjatar in this new iteration of Assaults to ensure dynamic replayability. Assaults are mandatory if you want to enter Horrific Visions.
      Initial Preview of Assaults in Visions of N'Zoth Horrific Visions
      Described as alternate realities where N'Zoth's power is ascendant, these are 1-5 player "scenarios" of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, where you need to complete various objectives for rewards. Horrific Visions revolve around a new mechanic called Sanity, which starts draining as soon as you enter a Horrific Vision. Your goal is to complete as many side objectives as possible and defeating the mini-boss before your Sanity is completely depleted.
      To help you with that, we've got Wrathion with a new Legendary Cloak and a Titanic Research Tree for Horrific Visions with perks that gradually trivialize the feature.
      Ny'alotha, the Waking City
      We will be facing N'Zoth in Ny'alotha, the new twelve-boss raid located in Uldum. It comes with a raid skip quest after you defeat the first boss and new sets up for grabs:
      Ny'alotha Cloth Sets Preview Ny'alotha Leather Sets Preview Ny'alotha Mail Sets Preview Ny'alotha Plate Sets Preview We've also covered the continuation of the story in Patch 8.3 and what happens in the raid in the articles below:
      New Forsaken Leadership in Patch 8.3 (Spoilers) Azshara's Bargain and the Key to Defeating N'Zoth (Spoilers) I'lgynoth's Whispers in Patch 8.3 (Analysis) N'Zoth's in-game model has been updated multiple times.
      Rewards Updates
      Visions of N'Zoth comes with two new factions, six new Essences, a brand new Mythic Season, a new Seasonal affix, Profession updates, and more that we'll cover soon.
      Heart of Azeroth will have a new Minor slot, two Stamina nodes, the maximum level increased to 85 (was 70). Coming in a later PTR update, Blizzard will be adding an additional infinite progression slot to aid you against N'Zoth's corruption at max level (whatever that means).
      New Allied Races: Vulpera & Mechagnomes
      Another pair of Allied Races will become available in Visions of N'Zoth. Alliance players will be able to recruit Mechagnomes and their Horde counterpart are the Vulpera of Vol'dun.
      Official Mechagnomes & Vulpera Preview Mechagnomes & Vulpera Racials Mechagnomes & Vulpera Unlock Requirements Vulpera Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome & Vulpera Dance Animations Vulpera Tidbits: Racial Mount, Shaman Totems, Hunter Pet New Heritage Armor: Goblins & Worgen
      Goblins and Worgen received new models and animations in Patch 8.2.5, but no Heritage Armor, which is added in Patch 8.3.
      Goblin & Worgen Heritage Armor Sets Preview Auction House Overhaul
      The Auction House will be completely revamped. No more lag caused by the system being clogged with single stacks. Stackable items are no longer purchased or sold in stacks, copper is no longer displayed in the Auction House, but used for calculations. If you regularly forget the name of goods, you can create a shopping list, and more!
      Auction House Revamp Preview The Removal of Titanforging
      Ion teased the removal of Titanforging in Patch 8.3 through something "dark and corrupt". We found some interesting Corrupted Rings from Ny'alotha with various Kiss/Curse Effects. Maybe we'll be able to cleanse the gear somehow and remove the curse effects. Note that this is pure speculation and we'll need to wait for Blizzard to drop more hints on what will be replacing Titanforging.
      Class Changes
      No patch would be complete without some class changes, right? You can find all class changes planned for Visions of N'Zoth here.
      Allied Race & Pandaren Death Knights
      We found encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Mograine together with Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren, and new Death Knight Swords of the Ebon Blade.
      We think Allied Races and the Pandaren will be able to roll Death Knights in the near future and there is at least a partial revamp of the Death Knight starting area planned now that Bolvar is the Lich King. Given that the files are encrypted, it's likely that this bit will be unveiled at this year's BlizzCon.
      New Mounts
      As usual with every content update, there are multiple mounts coming with placeholder descriptions, sources, and whatnot.
      Alpaca Mounts - Presumably, new reputation mounts available for purchase at Exalted. Chalcedony Cloud Serpent - A new recolor of the existing serpent, possibly tied to the Assault on Vale. N'Zoth Serpent - New Stormsong Valley Rare Mount from the Adherent of the Abyss. Aqir Flying Mount - Mythic N'Zoth mount, maybe? Ny'alotha Allseer - Ahead of the Curve reward? Island Expedition Vendors
      In Patch 8.3, you will be able to purchase Island-specific and Invasion-specific crates for Dubloons.
      New Dubloon Vendors Selling Island Expedition and Invasion Crates 3 New World Bosses
      Blizzard is adding 3 new world bosses to the game which drop item level 445 loot.
      Miscellaneous
      Other minor things planned for Patch 8.3 include:
      A new PvP event where players can serve N'Zoth, similar to Talon's Vengeance. Heroic difficulty for the Darkshore Warfront. Division of Operation: Mechagon into two wings, each with Heroic and Mythic Keystone difficulties. Darkmoon Arcande, allowing you to play your favorite mini-games at the Darkmoon Faire. Deepwind Gorge updated to be a capture point map. New Battle Pets and Pet Battle Dungeon - Blackrock Depths. New Story Quests: Rie of N'Zoth ...and more! We'll be periodically updating this hub with more details!
      Vision of N'zoth is the final major content patch of BfA and here's our hub with everything you need to know.
    • By Stan
      We're revisiting Pandaria in Patch 8.3, so Blizzard added a new soft pink recolor of the good old serpent mount to the game. The source of the mount is a placeholder and unknown for now.
      Chalcedony Cloud Serpent
      The gentle Chalcedony Cloud Serpents love to play in the petals that fall in the Arboretum, coloring their scales a soft pink hue.

      Hallow's End has arrived on live servers and there are no notable updates this year. The Headless Horseman's loot has been adjusted to item level 395. Check out our Hallow's End guide for more information about the event.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1
      Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 20-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added 2018 toy:
      Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
      Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
      There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed.

      Ny'alotha, the Waking City comes with a raid skip and once you defeat the first boss, you'll receive the raid skip quest and must collect 4 Corrupted Flesh Samples from the raid's penultimate boss to gain access to the skip.
      Players on 8.3 PTR discovered that once you defeat Wrathion, you will receive the "Ny'alotha: MOTHER's Guidance" quest, which unlocks a raid skip, granted that you've defeated the raid's eleventh boss, Carapace of N'Zoth, four times. After that, you should be able to skip straight to Carapace of N'Zoth without having to deal with the rest of the bosses.
      Ny'alotha is a twelve-boss raid and it's a good thing that they decided to include a raid skip.
