Can you imagine a guy multi-boxing 8 toons and going into a warzone, he could only attack one location at a time since he couldn't split up his little army... It would be pretty funny.

Since SWTOR has ZERO open world PvP, multi-boxing is pointless in this game...

/nofollow was removed by Blizzard!

This headline tells less than 1/2 the story.

1) It was only removed from BATTLEGROUNDS. (PvP) It's sine been clarified that Blizzard have NO INTENTION of removing it from openworld PvP or PvE at all.

2) It was removed to prevent BOTTING not multiboxing.

3) It was an experiment and they have already intimated that it may be back in the next patch or two (or may not)

4) Blizzard mods and admins have not only cleared dual and multiboxing (many years ago and many many many times since) some of the mods who have been with Blizzard for 8 years plus DO IT THEMSELVES and openly discuss it

5) It is more than possible to dual box Swtor with a single PC. The software is available for $9.99 per 3 months and does it right out of the box.

6) People have seen me dual boxing (I run Heroics to level or PvE to level ONLY - on my own - minding my own business with no other players present) I get "Botting - reported" type messages that show that
a) The person involved has no idea what botting is and ...
b)Those reporting are wasting their time. Had a chat window from admin open once and tell me I had been reported and that as long as I didn't gank I was fine.

So report away. I'm playing a game I love the way I like. I don't interact with other players and playing more than 2x the subs for the priviledge. If that annoys you, then maybe you should get out more! It has precisely ZERO effect on your playing.
Paid up till April 20th. Please give us more to do than just combat between now and then. Interactive professions... decent trade mechanics... secondary professions... decent guild set-ups... anything?!

The world isn't all about PvP
I've played MMO's for 13 years and detest PvP in all it's forms and styles.. I PvE only and multiboxing is a decent boon for that. I can run Heroics alone, level "slightly" quicker (you share XP rather than double it so the benefit here really is rather small..5% maybe?) But running heroics with a Tank/Healer or Tank/DPS combo is what it's all about.

Love Swtor - love the gameplay, the atmosphere, the graphics everything. Just no interest in ever playing with others. At all.
I have a full time job, sports and a family to interact with others socialising in a game rather than real life seems pretty lame to me. When I want to socialize - I do - for real .

Was it ever a doubt? WoW is not that good.

With all that on your plate you need to start spending your money elsewhere. You can take your family on vacations or to fancy steak dinners rather than wasting cash multiboxing.

I multiboxed... everquest, when i was a nerdy preteen. Never again, even getting a few beers with my mates is a better way to spend my money.

How inept does one have to be to need to multi-box in TOR?

Do these people have to google "walking" to remember it is right-left, right-left?
