Multi-Boxing Policy Inquiry

LUL… remembers back to KUSION ban. Also, see my other great twitch vids with Kusion… not winning

Oh look it’s this guy again; unimaginative, ill-informed, ignorant, and with a full on robot chubby for gankers.

To wit: https://forums-archive.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=512384. IIRC we covered how people manage to gank with multiple clients in that thread, without them resorting to input broadcasting or any of the other forbidden methods.

Erich, crawl back under your bridge.

Oohhh, so it’s just a hater.

He’s upset CODE. started killing empty freighters today just to troll Erich about not being able to stealing any loot drops.
I’d say it worked, behold this honeypot.

Tl:dr: You can’t do it, so they must be using hax.

You’re just garbage dude.

With that said, you have other ganking fleets such as Gimme Da Loot / Goons that gank with actual fleet members working together to provide the DPS it takes to bring down a freighter. They do it for the corp, they all get a cut, who knows but they seem to be playing the game the way it is supposed to be played where a number of people are each controlling their own 1-3 accounts.

No one gets a cut, I keep it all for myself.

If you have 2 or 3 monitors and a program like EVE-O Preview v3.1.0 “Lykoi” (multi-client preview / switcher) (perfectly legal) you can lock and fire as fast as you can move the mouse. Fitting 6-8 in a single server tick really isn’t that difficult.

If CCP hasn’t banned them, it’s because they haven’t caught them doing anything illegal.

It’s allowed lul

What’s not allowed is delaying beyond that i.e. dropping a ton of shuttles and whatnot :joy:

You’d think little anti-gankers would be more clever than that tbh

One would think people would be smart enough to figure out that, when it’s written right there on the webpage, that it is most likely not illegal, else CCP would have ran all over you guys.

@Arcanith_Lionheart hmmm? :slight_smile:

As has been mentioned here, it’s very possible with some creative keyboard mapping, and some preparation of the UI. And you will occasionally see someone who’s multiboxing DPS in this way fail to lock or fail to fire on one or more of their clients, because of how fast they are going.

Having you overview prepared, and possibly having some of the keys mapped to extra buttons on the mouse will certainly help with that. Knowing a few things about how the UI works will also help, because the EVE client itself will combine certain actions like locking, approaching, and activating prefired modules. Mind you, this sort of thing isn’t just useful for suicide ganking, it’s also how a few people still multibox bombers very effectively without broadcasting.

There’s been twitch streams of this in the past showing exactly how quickly it can be done, someone’s probably made a youtube video of them somewhere.

I thought that threads like this had died with the old forums :wink:

is there a way of having a omega and a alfa logged in at same time but on different laptops? - they are probably sharing the same IP from my home - is this ilegal?

According to what I read it is not advised, you are only allowed to use multiple characters if you have all Omega, theres no way in knowing if people use a simulated pc box or something for their benefit.

Also remember that ccp bans the characters and not the person, which is really useful :slight_smile:

It’s funny that the first sentence in your program mention state that it is “a tool to that helps you…”. Specifically if you read line 21 of the TOS, its states “No Extras or Tools”. Just watch the video and its clear that tools are being used.

But that is not the real issue here, because that is not what you are doing. Post a video of your keyboard, mouse and monitor and show that you can window switch as fast as the video does and conversation over.
