I just wanted to duel my toons agenst eachother and just mess around. Not involving other players. Just kicking my own ***. xD

I do it for story/RP reasons; for example I have an Agent/Sorc team or a Guardian/Sage team that I play through with at the same time. Lots of headphone switching for story missions

On one PC I use the keyboard, the other PC on a gaming mouse so I have 12+ buttons. Can't really see any strategic (or cheating) possibilities to it though, I'm not skilled enough

In game I have had people ask me about it. When toon B is following toon A and not doing much else it's pretty obvious what's going on. The people complaining, in game, say it's a way of cheating extra conquest points for a guild, extra conquest rewards...anything else really...

It's practically the same as if I were playing with a 2nd person sitting next to me.
Just without the 2nd person.

And my guild doesn't get enough points to even make it on the leader board, let alone give anyone a challenge for the top spot.
If you choose to fight in the sewer you can no longer claim to have the moral high ground.

My left hand (with the mouse) is usually Heal/DPS and the keyboard hand is most often Tank. Takes me longer to do content than it would if I just played through twice but it does add a certain challenge.

Results vary, but I wouldn't invite both hands to an Operation unless they were only controlling one toon
