Hi,

Please state clearly what the policy is on parcers such as MOX.

I am tired of people starting rumors about people getting banned for using them.

Cheers,

Reevax

Their policy is you are allowed to use third party parsers as that is the point of the out-of-game combat log file. People like to blame something other than the real reason they got banned...it's easier than admitting they were caught cheating in the game.

I would like to hear from Bio/Ea as people are still starting rumors about people being banned.

They are not being banned for using combat parsers, they are getting banned for cheating and not wishing to admit why they got banned.

I am sure you are correct but official word is still needed.

Do you honestly think these same people will believe anything? You could have official word, and they'd simply say BW is lying.

Having said that...sure, why not.

... they made the combat log file update in real time so players could create out-of-game combat parsers that work in real time. How is that not enough evidence they allow you to run third party combat parsers while the game is running?

What more official word do you need that that the MOX parser has a thread that is left alone by mods when many others are removed?

There is an official word already...
They confirmed this at PAX East, by announcing that the whole point of saving them to your HD was to use third party programs.
Don't waist dev. Time by making them re-confirm something ten times.

It's called google. Do a little research.
