ISBoxer Will Be Updated to Comply With Blizzard's New Multiboxing Policies

Recommended Posts

53670-the-end-of-multiboxing-in-warcraft

ISBoxer, the most popular WoW multiboxing software, will get rid of input broadcasting capabilities soon.

On November 3, Blizzard posted an update on the use of input broadcast software that mirrors keystrokes to multiple game clients. They think the use of such software hurts the game, and players who continue using it for multiboxing have started receiving warnings that can eventually lead to harsh penalties and even account closures.

As World of Warcraft has evolved, our policies have also evolved to support the health of the game and the needs of the players. We’ve examined the use of third-party input broadcasting software, which allows a single keystroke or action to be automatically mirrored to multiple game clients, and we've seen an increasingly negative impact on the game as this software is used to support botting and automated gameplay. The use of input broadcasting software that mirrors keystrokes to multiple WoW game clients will soon be considered an actionable offense. We believe this policy is in the best interests of the game and the community.

We will soon begin issuing warnings to all players who are detected using input broadcasting software to mirror commands to multiple accounts at the same time (often used for multi-boxing). With these warnings, we intend to notify players that they should not use this software while playing World of Warcraft. Soon thereafter, the warnings will escalate to account actions, which can include suspension and, if necessary, permanent closure of the player's World of Warcraft account(s). We strongly advise you to cease using this type of software immediately to maintain uninterrupted access to World of Warcraft.

Thank you for your understanding.

One of the most popular software solutions when it comes to multiboxing in World of Warcraft is ISBoxer. Recently, one of the developers revealed they would work on some software that doesn't have input broadcasting capabilities to comply with Blizzard's policies.

Our workaround is to work on some software that does not have input broadcasting capabilities.

We need to wait to see how this all pan out for multiboxers and whether ISBoxer will still be prominent without input broadcasting capabilities.

I don't think this is enough because whole point of removing key cloning was to fight the bots and remove all kind of programs interact with WoW. Before due to MB was legal it was hard for them to distinguish Multiboxing with Botting. If Blizzard allow this kind of programs to work again they are buying new problems for themselves. Anyway this new change with ISBoxer should make it legal because they removed key cloning now. I really don't know how this will play out but botting increased in WoW to a boiling point and it is super ridiculous and really hurting WoW economy. Blizzard really need to hire a few ppl to track and kill bots immediately as soon as they appear and this is only way they can remove this parasites from WoW. It is now clear from past experiences in 16  years that current way of Blizzard dealing with bots is NOT working at all.

This change has had 0 effects on botting, from what I've read on it, botting is done using multiple machines themselves running multiple virtual machines with each running scripts for each bot. Thus stopping or banning multiple input software like IS boxer will only affect multiboxers, and not touch bots at all (at least the big ones that do the most damage)

The thing is playing WoW on VM or Cloud-Steaming VMs is against the Blizzard EULA, Those scripts needs some sort of program to compile and run them at the least it needs an application of any sort batch or exe or ... to make it work and Blizzard can and should be able to detect them, The important part is it needs to be stopped at all costs right now at cost of legal actual Multiboxers and this empowered bots instead of killing them. Look at Crimson Fen it is weeks now since start of pre-patch and bots crawling the place and Blizzard done nothing stupid bots with stupid scripts walking like mongrols same regular path again and again, This cannot be stopped with warden or system it needs actual human brain a bot hunting team should be hired by Blizzard. Current way of dealing with them is ineffective tagging them and banning them every 3-6 months and they made enough gold to buy 10 more botting accounts, In achieving this by Blizzard methods actual normal players with peculare but "OK" play style getting hurt.

Botting is itself is against ToS, the how they do it doesn't really matter since what they're doing is bannable anyway.

You're right, it does need stopping, and warden and their current methods are not up to the task. They won't hire people just to sit and detect bots though that's what is needed.

My point was simply that anyone expecting this particular change and clamp down on multi boxxing to have any effect on botting is in for a bad time...

ok so i knew i guy that botted about 5 or so years ago and at that time i just started multiboxing and when i asked him if he did both together he said it dosent work , that the botting software is designed to run one toon only, now he did have more than one computer so he ran a bot on each one. So you really cant say thet multiboxing goes along with botting. And remember that botting dosent require anyone at the keyboard after its started, but to multibox you have to have a person at the keyboard.

      The eighth week of Shadowlands Season 4 ends with the weekly maintenance on Tuesday, and we're looking at how the Mythic+ tier list has shifted, based on the data from Subcreation.
      DISCLAIMER
      The following post is based on statistics provided by Subcreation, a website that gathers various Mythic+ data from live servers. Please note that the tier list is biased toward the top end because it only looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix and it doesn't look at keys below +16 and untimed runs.
      Therefore, the data presented in this news post will always differ from our Mythic Tier Lists maintained by our writer Petko.
      Data Reliability
      The data used in the post comes from Subcreation, a site maintained by Alcaras. Subcreation provides statistical analysis of Mythic+ dungeons, raids, and PvP in Shadowlands, and the data is provided via the Warcraft Logs API and Raider.io. If you'd like to support Subcreation, you can check out their Patreon.
      How the Data is Calculated
      The site looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix across all regions and examines their raider.io scores. For each dungeon and specialization, the site takes the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval of the top 100 runs for each specialization. The site then averages these lower bounds, one per dungeon, to get an overall average lower bound for each spec, which is finally used to create the tier list.
      The site takes the lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval calculated and then clusters them into 6 buckets using the Ckmeans algorithm. You can find more information by reading the site's FAQ.
      Tanks, Healers, Melee, and Ranged are all on the same scale, they're just shown separately for easier comparison across roles.
      Mythic+ Tier List in Shadowlands Season 4 Week 8
      The specs are ranked based on their lb_ci which stands for the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval. If a certain tier is missing, it's not occupied by any specialization.
      Tank Tier List
      Based on 26,165 runs, ranging in difficulty from +16 to +34.

      Starter Builds are preset talent builds created for players who prefer not to choose their own talents yet, but want a decent build that is suitable for most content.
      For now, Starter Builds are only available to Evokers on the Dragonflight Beta, but all classes will have them when the new expansion launches.
      How Do Starter Builds Work?
      Switch to your desired Specialization. From the Loadout Tab dropdown, select Starter Build.

      Dollie and Dot, our favorite alpacas from Vol'dun, are returning in Dragonflight!
      The alpacas are well-known from Vol'dun, the zone native to the Vulpera. Back in Battle for Azeroth, Meerah was singing to Dolly and Dot while they were riding a caravan to the Temple of Akunda in Vol'dun.
      In 2019, Blizzard even sold a Dottie plushie and to this day, you can buy Dottie in WoW as an in-game pet.
      If you're a fan of Dolly and Dot, you'll be happy to hear both will be returning in Dragonflight! Samuraislider found them in the Dragon Isles.
