    I would just like to point out that Mesanna specifically outlawed what she called "multi-boxing", that is simultaneously commanding multiple clients to do exactly the same action. This allows you to run multiple identical characters and have them all attack simultaneously, etc; obviously, a total abuse of power. I cannot find the specific UOHerald post regarding this, but you can read about it here.

    Well, it seems a certain person is now using a stealth archer in this fashion, five identical ones to be exact (the same ones we killed whilst they afk macroed their skills on Bald Island). Of course, we will not give the character name or their better-know name on these forums, but we have reported this and will continue to do so if it persists. I encourage anyone else who experiences this to do the same.

    However, I am sure we will not see this again. The GM/Commanding Lord of this player prides himself on how honourable he is and is very quick to call out others who abuse the rules, and I am sure he will see that this practice will now cease. After all, this person is quite legally providing him with 30-50 votes in the TB elections so that he can continue to deny members of that faction any silver, so why stoop to anything illegal?

    Are the Lithuanians at it again!?! I thought they only played on Baja. I hate it when a group of stealth archers all pop out at once and AI one target killing him. Just bad PvP

    So your claiming these people multi boxing is me? I am the one with the votes and I am truly offended by this accusation please remove this non sense it hurts my reputation as a reputable broker in these lands. Until you have further proof to back up this accusation to call out the offender, put the blame else where.

    Thanks,

    accusations and assumptions is what you should rename your guild there mr hoffs.
    why dont you clean up your guild first before you start slinging it at others. You want the Bo to start naming the people in your alliance that are running speeder cause there certainly is enough of them..
    oh yeah and btw the bo is too dumb to comment on anything else right kelmo

    "...five identical ones to be exact..."

    Member of the Jury, I would like to point out that his .sig is composed of 5 identical characters!!!

    I rest my case.

    The quote specifcially says "Multiboxing is not illegal". Its people who abuse it in combination with macroing. It can be taken several different ways. Regardless, you can run 2 clients at once if you run one with UO Assist (An approved program) and then just open a 2nd UO client directly. This is not considered illegal. If you use an unapproved 3rd party program, then it becomes illegal.

    I don't know any thing about multiboxing but this all sounds like a great reason to get rid of factions once and for all.

    They are getting rid of factions. There will be a whole new system in place so no one will have to worry they can argue about the new system when it comes out.

    multi-boxing isnt necessarily illegal but the 3rd party program they use to control all three off these clients at once is. atleast now instead of killing one baddie i get to kill 3 at once \o/

    Whoever it is, I'd say it looks like a job for the GM's and the Ban-hammer... but that's just me. I don't like it when folks have to cheat to feel like they can win.

    And this thread is being resurrected, why?

    I am also curious as to why the mods around here let this happen when it is directed toward a certain guild, yet jump all over closing a controversial thread involving another guild, which shall remain nameless, of course. :rolleyes2:

    I agree with you in choosing not to use such a thing. Simple fact is there are good people on the shard that simply act with honor even in a game because that's what good honorable people do. Then there are others that do not have the ethical fortitude it takes not to cheat. It's what people without honor do. I have mentioned no names nor guilds. It is a simple statement of fact.
