Poll + Bonus Dev Discussion - Multiboxing
Glorious Ashes community - it's time for another Dev Discussion! Dev Discussion topics are kind of like a "reverse Q&A" - rather than you asking us questions about Ashes of Creation, we want to ask YOU what your thoughts are.
Our design team has compiled a list of burning questions we'd love to get your feedback on regarding gameplay, your past MMO experiences, and more. Join in on the Dev Discussion and share what makes gaming special to you!
This bonus Dev Discussion topic came directly from community feedback during our recent AMA with Creative Director Steven Sharif! Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the thread and/or poll below.
Bonus Dev Discussion - Multiboxing
What are your thoughts on allowing multiboxing, and why? If multiboxing is allowed, are there restrictions that you would prefer to be in place? How do you prevent false positives on enforcement for families and friends who play from the same home?
Multiboxing - Playing multiple separate characters at the same time.
Current Intrepid stance - Players are allowed to own multiple accounts, but may not launch multiple game clients from the same computer. Players may not use any software to automate character actions or mimic keystrokes.
Keep an eye out for our next Dev Discussion topic regarding quest breadcrumbs!

I believe there should be more restrictions, but do not agree with banning multiboxing completely.

I believe there should be fewer restrictions, and multiboxing on the same computer should be permitted.
