Breakfast Topic: Skeletons in the closet

Amanda Dean

It looks like Blizzard is busting out the ban hammer in full force. Last week is was on point sellers (and buyers) in the arena this week they're bashing down Glider users. There was a lot of noise on the forums last week from folks that felt they were unjustly punished. I'm sure we'll hear similar stories as a fallout from the glider events.

It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy all over when cheaters get their due. But it also makes me worry that the witch hunt might go too far. Here at WoW Insider we make it a point to be kind of hush hush about exploits, since we have no desire to lead anyone astray. (This is why we said very little about things like the Fire Nova Totem or Snake Trap exploits). The way I see it is if you don't do anything wrong, you don't have anything to worry about. We've all repeatedly agreed to the terms of use.

I make it a point to play by the rules. I have been known to multibox, but only when I'm in complete control of both characters (using only follow and assist macros). I only use follow and assist macros when running two computers. The rest is done by a ridiculous pose with one hand on each keyboard. Blizzard says that running multiple accounts is acceptable as long as it doesn't involve botting. Then again, they also said that creative arena strategies were acceptable, at one point

Has the harsh punishment of recent weeks made you nervous about any skeletons in your closet?
