Well, that is what the Dev Discussions are, we ask you the community on various questions of the development so that we can see what you like and dislike.
Our goal is to clean the game as much as possible from such abusive practices and bad mechanics.
So on the topic, yes there won't be any Multi-Boxing allowed or other 3rd party apps helping in abusing the systems :)
How do you plan to make sure no abuse is possible? I consider this difficult.
Similarly: How will you make sure botting wont be an issue? Do you have good solutions in mind?
World of Warcraft for example is facing severe botting issues since a decade, not being able to stop it.
soooo, i did multibox for several months in WoW and i always liked playing around with it.
like, the setup and getting everything to work perfectly was always more appealing to me than actually using the whole thing for profit.
but i gotta say, even tho i do like it - i wouldn't like to see it in your game, let's keep it clean ;)
For me multi boxing just will kill the game, cause for me the main goal of a mmorpg is to play with different peoples, create friendship... if u implemented multi boxing people will just stop to play together and they'll only use her others characters, that's what happened to Dofus
I'm new here and I've only browsed the official site (not much info on systems). To me the multibox question, it depends on how the other systems are. For example If I chose to farm / collect rare items with my time and there's a limited inventory system in place (where it would force me to pick and choose which item to bin/delete/drop), I would want multiboxing so that I can store the items I've worked hard to obtain.
If items/loot are bound to a character / can't be traded then muiltiboxing would not be needed (but in this case, would limit any market / auction house system)
Multiboxing is so annoying and bad for many reasons. The Economical aspect (World Reccources etc.), PvP, Questing (nearly impossible with multiboxers around) and Powerleveling. In my opinion multiboxing only has a negative impact.
I think every important aspect was already said.
I just want to give my vote against Multi-Boxing! :)
Every player should be able to enter only one acc that's my opinion i hate to see games full with afk staying and afk farming people or crafting from few acc's at simular time you should not give too much options to the players. The options should be limited soo they can chose what and how to play otherwise they will join the game from few acc lvlin up few profesions at same time while their guild is supporting them with the materials in no time and where is the point for me to work my time to lvl up profession when the other player will lvl it up in no time.There is similar system in games like albion online and rise online where evryone is farming and trading all the loot to the crafter and my profession is worth nothing and i stop doing it.
Multiboxing would only harm the aim of the game being community oriented, what good is it to allow one single player to have a whole party by themselves effectively discouraging them working with others? And it would start a vicious circle of others having to do the same to remain competitive with those able to hoard a party's worth of ressources by themselves. It can only lower the game experience.
