Never establish a rule that you cannot enforce with considerable accuracy.

Have you ANY experience in the real world. That would negate most laws and legal systems.

Props. You are going to see a pretty nasty sub hit from this. However, this is necessary. I just hope you can recover those subs quickly.

It just shows that CCP values players over bot accounts.

No, but the fact I am running Mac OSX and it provides these functions, how would the distinguish between legal and illegal actions. I run 6 monitors and typically have 12-25 clients running, i can see every client on the screens simultaneously, so clicking from screen to screen and pressing keyboard buttons happens super fast and I can broadcast to multiple clients or a single client, but clicking from one to the other is instant.

The default would be ban first and sort it out later. I dont' have that kind of time, it took me 5 months to get a simple reimbursement thru the CCP bureaucracy, i can't imagine how many years a petition here would take.

Just thinking outloud, I could make a script to cycle the windows and do the commands a window at a time, them I am not broadcasting to multiple clients - this may work after all

Haha isnt this guy the one who went on and on about how people need to adapt and put in more work when the reprocessing and jump changes went in?? Sounds like you need to practice what you preach bud Smile

You are quite correct. It makes his lamentations all the more enjoyable.

A little overboard with this change don't you think? Your game is far to slow for most activities.

While I can understand taking down the 30 man IsBoxer fleets, you should consider allowing small groups of 2 or 3 to multi-broadcast.

Better save links to this thread. We will need these links a whole lot over the next year!

I just logged in one last time to say, "Thank you."

It was a brave decision for any corporation to make, and I understand that completely. Well done, and very intelligently executed.

Reddit, Twitter, and other forums I've stumbled across have exploded with cheers.

Again, thank you.

So is-boxer is banned?

edit: I Honestly dont care about is-boxer or what it can do, since i've never used it, or met anyone who uses it. But the OP is not very clear on it.

isboxer isn't banned. Some of the things isboxer can do are banned.

isboxer has just been officialy banned *Snip* Please refrain from personal attacks. ISD Ezwal.
. logging in 12 clients at once is something i dont necesarly care about rofl. not being able to do what isboxer enabled me to do. warp all at once, and generaly clone the input to all at once for mining/etc will screw it tough.

As someone who actually ISBox's bombers I'm a little upset.

The problem isn't ISBoxer. The problem is that bombs as they currently stand are completely broken Sure isboxer exacerbates the problem significantly, but you can still get 30 dudes into a fleet easily and go kill anything with 4 waves that isn't a T3 or a faction battleship. I'd be happy to see my bomber accounts become useless and de-sub them if it meant I didn't have to worry about getting hell bombed every other fleet.

Yours and all your isboxing mates tears are sweet. For a few years now you have had risk free PVP, and although CCP may not have nerfed bombers with the cloaking mechanics your personal abuse of software input has finally been stopped.

You are the problem, CCP has the cure.

As was noted in the CSM Summer Summit Minutes, I pushed hard for this change and I am delighted to see it finally implemented. The grey area that was simultaneous input commands needed to be killed off and I'm over the moon to see CCP go through with it.

No because that would save the interceptor ratter hunters. If you cant control multiple windows manually then play one account like normal people.

if minerals go up and mining gets profitable again, maybe real miners will start mining again.
