I have multiboxed for multiple years now and something that has bothered me ever since the policy change to multiboxing (not allowing it in competitive modes) is that i am totally locked out of content i would be perfectly capable of playing in, put actual value to my server and enjoy.
I get it... "real" world vs world has a limited amount of spots, having multiple accounts logged in can skew the population values. Yes.... there could be specific character comps that would be pretty degenerate and annoying to encounter as an enemy. But there are still positives and negatives. A multiboxer can never manouvre his accounts as fast as someone who plays single account, a multiboxer would not have the upper hand on open field and would get easily shut down by an enemy player.
I WvW is not all about fighting enemies, face to face, even if some people like to think so. There are alot of player vs enviroment elements in WvW, such as taking structures, scouting, etc.
I can do tier 4 fractals, DRM CMs, strike missions any open world event with my accounts but trying to flip structures in WvW is a big nono. I get it that multiboxers generally have a bad reputation of afking or leeching but some of us actually want to play the game actively.
Some of you will say "just play on 1 account" thats fair but multiboxing to me is something that keeps me interested in the game, and makes the game alot more enjoyable. Multiboxing in itself is challenging if you do harder content and its not super easy to manouvre. The idea of trying to take a tower knowing that at any time enemy can show up and mess things up is exciting. People who try solo towers solo doesnt do it because its the easiest way to flip towers, they do it because its challenging for them (i would assume).
Some of you would say "you just want extra rewards" personally i would gladly literally destroy thousand of gold if this policy changed. Yes there are items in WvW i need. I am trying to get the legendary ring on all my accounts, if i did them seperately it would take about 44 months if i maxed out tickets every week, vs about 7 weeks if i did them at once. But i am not doing this for gold.
Here are some of my propositions how to change the multiboxing policy in World vs World:
EDGE OF THE MISTS
EOTM is literally the most dead gamemode in the game, you can run around the map and not see a single player. Here is a video of a matchup were literally 4 structures has been captured in 234 minutes https://streamable.com/2lysfi
Not allowing multiboxing in EOTM makes literally no sense to me. 99% of the time there are nothing but npcs in there, why am i not allowed to try flip a tower for daily or kill some veteran guards it doesnt affect anyone negatively.
Lastly, PVP and WVW should not be having the same policy, they are different gamemodes entirely. WVW is huge maps with alot of pve elements and you can actually be useful in there. There is no way a 2 man multibox in ranked or a 5 man multibox in tournament could ever have a chance vs other players. Multiboxing in pvp was and is a gold farm and it made perfectly sense why its not allowed in there. Have you ever seen a 5 man multibox in ATs actually try win the game? no, they sit in spawn, or log off all accounts but 1.
