    Default RIFT's stance on multi-boxing is... OK

    I just can not believe RIFT support staff thinks muliti-boxing is ok ... are they trying to lose customers - I guess so as I am ready to quite because of it!!!

    I think they need to tighten the "rules" on people having more than one account that use them for PVP - they should make separate warfront just for multiboxers lol just like Blizzard did for twinks and it died off as it took skill to PVP like this it most people just like killing the under-geared people easily...

    Below is taken from: https://support.trionworlds.com/app/...~/multi-boxing

    What is In-Game Support’s stance on multi-boxing?

    It is perfectly valid for a player to play the game on multiple accounts at the same time.

    While we do not condone or tolerate unattended gameplay or botting, if a player is actively in control of all of their characters, they are not in violation of our Code of Conduct.

    I have seen hundreds of people leave the game and none of them have ever told me they are leaving because of multiboxers.

    Thanks for bringing this issue to the forums though, we haven't had any multiboxer threads here that I know of.

    1. Use CC
    2. Use damage
    3. Apply 1 and 2 intelligently with 4 other people
    4. Add healing
    5. Win

    If five people cannot defeat five characters being controlled by one person, that is a l2p issue.

    What constitutes a 3rd party program violation?

    Trion Worlds strictly prohibits the creation of clients or modification of our client in ways that would allow for automated play (generally known as "botting"), or modification that negatively impacts the experience of other players. Using any programs that can bypass normal gameplay mechanics is also prohibited. Such creation, use, or modification of this kind is in direct violation of Code of Conduct'

    A description of our Code of Conduct Violations can be found here. A Use of 3rd Party Programs Violation is considered a Major Violation.

    this might help you win the war.

    I mean today , I have a server sitting next to me and it had 10 virtual computers running on it, I could install and play 11 seperate instances of this game concurrently. but as far back as 2001, yes thats before some of you were born as erie as that sounds, when computers were big old clunky things that cost 900 bucks to make back when that was a months rent........ multi boxing was FINE back then too (team wizzy LOL)

    nobody complained about multi boxing in daoc or in warhammer because those games had less insta cast spells. multi boxing was a problem in wow and a problem here because you guys keep asking for easier and easier to use and more insta spells, to this is the result.

    Threads about multiboxers are kind of like multiboxers in game; They're annoying and take up space.

    No one HAS to read or respond to these threads. It is a problem in low level WFs. After blizz disabled auto follow in randoms, it came here. Blizz saw the error in this, trion needs to follow blizz on this one.

    do you see a multiboxer that is one shotting people? Here is a simple solution, use a yank/knockback/etc on the one in front that is being controlled and BAM, they can no longer auto follow and fall into disarray.

    Other useful methods: brospear, heavy AOE, marking them for focus fire, arrested presence, sheeping multiple ones, running away til above are possible, etc...

    Did I mention brospear?

    There's this lovely game mechanic called moving that allows you to go the opposite direction of other people that I find extremely useful for avoiding certain players. As a rogue I feel it is my duty to explain this to other callings.

    So I logged in and played my warrior last night, ran into the "N" bot group. Used group summon and destroyed them. Looks like more trouble than its worth tbh, all it takes is a pull spec to ruin the group.
