Heads up!

The /follow removal from WoW bgs has opened up a can of worms that's headed this direction.

Here's a quote from some Multi-boxer on WoW named HonerKiller. Better remove /follow from SWTOR asap or there will be fire-storm of gamer-rage brewing.!

The name of this post is: 40 boxer to leave WoW and go play SWTOR

"You heard it here first. 40 accounts times $14.99 per month is $599.60 that Blizzard entertainment has been getting for the last 6 years. With the recent change made concerning the removal of /follow in battlegrounds, this leaves me no choice but to look at other games which support my style of game play.

Given that phasing was implemented which added much more lag to world player versus player combat and many times lead to a server crash, this recent change makes it even more difficult to continue playing this game using this style of game play.

Is the game designed for this style of game play? Yes, because the game mechanics, rules and functions within the game allow it. Players don't determine what is cheating or not, that's up to the game manufacturer set forth in the Terms of Use and End User License Agreement.

Everyone has choices within the free world and free market. When features are removed from a game that has been there for over eight years, players can choose to leave to go play something else. That's the result of removing features and functionality to a game that had many players enjoying the game for what it was and had been prior to the change. Many have voiced their concerns over this recent change and there are some that seem to think that there is a small number of players that will actually leave the game as a result of the change in removing /follow from battlegrounds. Without this feature, the multiboxer will not be able to progress like the rest of the players in terms of Player versus Player (PvP) gear because the best PvP gear is rewarded in this manner.

If there is another way to reward the best PvP gear without doing battlegrounds or arena while maintaining /follow, the multiboxer can continue to progress and enjoy the game as all others of the game would be. This suggests that multiboxers won't be playing battlegrounds or arena but if there were some other method to reward the best gear that currently is from doing rated battlegrounds and arena with conquest points, it would allow the multiboxer to continue progressing. Just a suggestion. Maybe some special world pvp event or something that allows rewards in an equivalent fashion that battlegrounds and arena offer."

End quote.
