Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

October 12, 2008 -

By way of Ripten comes the story of "Bradster," who claims to play 36 separate World of Warcraft accounts on 11 computers, dropping nearly six grand per year in subscription fees.

If the picture at left is genuine, it's quite a hardware setup.

Of his obsession, Bradster writes:

A lot have asked me, why create so many? The main reason is to invade Stormwind and Ironforge when they reach top level. I’m sure the Alliance will put up a big fight when that happens. We’ll see how it goes...

 

It costs me exactly $5711 in subscription costs per year with 36 accounts on the 6 month pay schedule. Not bad considering I’m looking at it like it’s a hobby and there are more expensive hobbies out there than World of Warcraft... When Wrath of the Lich King is released, I plan to be at the store when it opens and will purchase 36 copies of it. With tax, it should be about $1500 for all of them...

Via: Gizmodo

GP: I've seen individual WoW players control a chain of characters before, but 36? Sounds almost superhuman.

I knew I'd find something I didn't like about Obama. Damn his anti-gun policies. He seems intelligent so why can't he understand that bans on guns are not needed and shouldn't be around? Oh and do you have a link to his voting record? I just want to be sure.

The first has a majority of his votes, but seems to only have 4 of his votes on firearm-related issues.

An NRA run website that includes pretty much everything Obama has said about the 2nd amendment and most of what he's voted on since he became a politician.

Read both, the first has most of his votes on issues, which is interesting when compared with his 'stances', and the second has his real thoughts on your right to bear arms.

And that doesnt include the cost of all that hardware. I would personaly like to know what the specs on those latops are and how he aquired them.

Seriously, I need to know; does he live in his parent's basement?

Seriously, do you honestly believe, that someone that can shell out 6000$ annually for subscription fees for a video game, play that game on a dozen high-end machines, with commensurate power consumption and internet connectivity and call that "not bad, it's just a hobby aftter all" lives in anyone's basement?

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Yes.  It's much easier to afford that kind of hobby when you're not paying the power bill.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Because there's that many people that call 6000$ subscription costs "not bad", that can't pay their power bill themselves.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Let me put it into perspective.  I have 12 computers/tvs/consoles in my 8000sqft house.  My monthly bill is 1200 give or take (summer its higher, winter its lower).  His is probably near that as well, just for his computers.

Now, I work 14 hour days most weeks.  I don't have the time to play 36 fucking accounts and still make the money to support that kind of bullshit.

So the kid is either A) living at home with parents who foot his amazing energy bill or B) inherited money from his parents and footing the bill with their money.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

know what you're right, there is no possible way that he could make 250k a year and support his habit, if you call it that, he doesn't say how much time he uses on it... could be a an hour a day to ten, if you play em all at once u don't need to play 36 hours a day to get an hour in on each account, only one -{response to the money comment}

now on to your money... no one cares how much the total D-bag who lives next door makes unless they are gonna get something out of it, i don't think i'm making much money off your "8000 clusterfuck house" or "14 hour days." the average person works 8.

There are also plenty ways to make money without having to work "14" hours a day and 7 days a week, investing can make you almost instantly rich, if you're lucky and smart.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

It is interesting that you make this player out to be someone that is wasting his money and yet just about everything you mentioned could be looked at by others as a waste of time and money.

In addition you speak of the type of person that makes a great deal of money would not do something like this.  Yet you do have "12 computers/tvs/consoles in my 8000sqft house".  In many circles that would be an over the top amount of electronics or home square footage.

Perhaps we should look at this as someone who is a fanatic about WoW.  Then realize that fanatics about other things could be looked at as just as ridiculous. (aka. gun collecting)

Or C) earns more money that you an hour.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

I'm gonna go ahead and suggest that's wrong, but mainly on the basis that I don't have 'hourly' earnings.  Also because I make quite a bit of money.

Another thing I notice among people who earn the kind of money I do, we have the tendency to realize that doing one thing 36 times (even if you're doing it all at once) isn't 'fun'.  Its repetitive and tedious and boring.  I have much more fun turning on my own high-end computer and playing an hour of insurgency as my WoW-playing friend does playing 2 WoW accounts on his computer.  Chances are, if this isn't a hoax, the person involved did it for bragging rights, which is pretty fucking pathetic.  If the only thing you can do to stand out is spend money and run a program, you need to re-evaluate your life.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

"Also because I make quite a bit of money." - Nobody cares.

"I have 12 computers/tvs/consoles in my 8000sqft house." - Still doesn't change the fact that your mother should have swallowed.

Really, she should have swallowed.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

You're making a fundamentally incorrect assumption here.

"we have the tendency to realize that doing one thing 36 times (even if you're doing it all at once) isn't 'fun'."

He's not doing the same thing 36 times.  He's doing a new, different thing once.  The experience of playing this game with an army is definitely different from the experience one gets by playing one, or even a small handful, of toons simultaneously.

I don't see how this is any less valid than any other 6k/year hobby, of which there are quite a few.  Seriously, since he IS playing them all at once, he could be sinking no more time into this than any other single-account player, and have the same social life any of them do.  In fact, I bet he may have an easier time than a single player getting stuff done in a time-efficient manner because he'll never have to wait to find a group for anything...

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

He's not doing a new different thing once.  He's making everyone do basically the same thing with some slight variations.  So he's doing one thing 36 times (just doing it simultaneously). 

You REALLY don't see how this is any less valid than any other $6000/yr hobby?  Other than the fact that he took a game about socialization and teamwork and decided he'd rather spend upwards of 10000 dollars to not socialize or work with a team?  Most hobbies involve at least some interaction, whether it be via a chatbox in-game or face to face during competition. This isn't a hobby, its sad.  He spent what some people make in a year getting 36 characters to control simultaneously, so he could play one game with 36 characters at once and not have to interact with people.  Oh man, what a great hobby.

Honestly, if this isn't a hoax, then its a good bet that he's just doing it for the bragging rights, which, as I mentioned earlier, is pathetic.  Normally, I don't care what people do with their money, but this is absolutely stupid.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

You know you call him pathetic but really its you who is coming across as the pathetic one here. You talk about the good living you make,

"Also because I make quite a bit of money"

You rule out the possiblilty that he may make more than you and suggest he lives at home, but by looking at the picture on dual-boxing.com he is clearly not in a basement, if you add up the subscription fees, hardware costs, software costs, it is very unlikely that he is working some $25K/annun job and just saving on the rent. He probably makes a good deal of money or is provided for in some other manner. His level of writing is fairly high, so we can infer that he is probably intelligent. Also, take a look at his attitude on the amount of money he spends,

"It costs me exactly $5711 in subscription costs per year with 36 accounts on the 6 month pay schedule. Not bad considering I'm looking at it like it's a hobby and there are more expensive hobbies out there than World of Warcraft."

Also, you talk about how not many people make the kind of money you do but for some reason you feel entitled to speak for them,

"Another thing I notice among people who earn the kind of money I do, we have the tendency to realize..."

You have no way of knowing how much fun he gets out of his 36 fucking accounts. You say you have more fun playing your favorite game for one hour then your friend has playing for 2 hours on WoW, but again, how do you know?

You don't know. Actually, there is a very easy way to see who is having "more fun" or at least who places more value on their computer game. Lets see, we'll start with you, Pompous Ass, or PA for short. PA goes and works his hard 14 hour days then comes home, fires up his high end gaming rig and plays shoot 'em up for an hour.

PA's Costs: One hour of time, hardware cost for one uber rig, software cost for one game, energy used(~.16kwh)

Now lets look at Obssessed Addict, or OA. OA comes home from whatever the hell he is doing to support himself and his ungodly game habit. He needs to level up his 36 characters so he spends several hours grinding into the night. The room is humming with the sounds of more than 36 little fans whirring away, keeping his gaming machines from over-heating. Around 12am he realizes that it is getting late and he shuts down his computers, which from the picture provided at dual-boxing.com, are clearly NOT in a basement.

OA's Costs: Five hours of time, hardware costs for 36 laptops/desktops, software costs for 36 instances of WoW and expansions, energy used(~108kwh)

Well, looks like for whatever reason, OA value's his playtime more than you value yours, which one could say is roughly analagous to level of fun.

Of course there is nothing we can do about the small level of enjoyment your wife gets from your, umm, nether regions, is there?

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Allow me to quote you from earlier in this thread: "You take a very good point then go an ruin it by being stupid."

I happen to agree with your stance on Austin_Lewis' reaction, but the ad hominem attacks aren't doing anything but undermining a potentially valid point.

And again, people are making this assumption that he's wasting more time playing the game than a "casual" player, or even a hardcore player with one account.  If he's playing them all at once, I don't see how that is, and as I mentioned earlier I think there's a good chance he actually wastes less time getting things done than most players.

There's a decent amount of empirical evidence that the guy is pretty self-sufficient, and this is what he has decided to spend his disposable income on, because it makes him happy.  I really don't get why people feel they need to attack him.

" Other than the fact that he took a game about socialization and teamwork and decided he'd rather spend upwards of 10000 dollars to not socialize or work with a team?"

Who says he doesn't? I don't play Wow but I bet someone who controls 36 characters would have people begging him to join a guild.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Holy shit, your one of THOSE!! Seriously though, I am a recovery addict (drugs, not video games) and I was curious, would you characterize your playing of those MMORPGs as an addiction? Was it hard for you to stop? Did other areas of your life suffer? Did your grades drop? I've heard from people who would like to classify game addiction as an actual medical condition (as is substance addiction, but there is research to back up the claim that drug addiction is a disease) but I have always been hesitant to classify it as such. I should also mention I am studying to become an addiction counselor.

Well, Cheers!

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Gotta say.. there's nothing about that much WoW that can ever be impressive. This man is sinking more money than any person ought to on a game and nothing else. Nearly $6000 is just what he spent for the accounts alone. That doesn't include what he spent buying each copy of the game, the multiple laptops, monitors, hardware, keyboards, and every other little ammenity that this man had to spend in a bold affront against common sense and human interaction. I really wonder what this guy does for a living because that much money and that much time going into WoW means he can't be doing much else... His health is probably in the shitter as well, now that I think about it.

But, I'm eager to read the follow-up article where this guy gets all 36 of his accounts banned for abusing the system,  gold-farming, and power-leveling since those are the only ways this fool could make enough money for him to support his addiction

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

You take a very good point then go an ruin it by being stupid. While yes, this is impressive the same way a car wreck can be beautiful, no one should really be applauded for investing so much of themselves and their resources into a computer game.

As for where you go south, you are missing the big picture. We see the money he is willing to invest in yearly dues, software costs, hardware costs, time. If anyone if willing and able to invest the time required to level up 36 characters it is this man. He is the epitome of that guy from the South Park episode, the one who we only ever see on the computer, chips falling onto his shirt as he click, click, clicks.

Yes, sometimes I am an ass ladies and gentlemen.(though really, how many ladies are reading?)

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Well, you're assuming he NEEDS a job.  He, or at least his family, may very well be ultra rich.

And that's an assumption on your part about his health.

Remember, he's playing most, if not all, the characters at the same time.  He can, as a group, take on some heavy hitters, jump a level or two after a few hours, then stop and come back later to play, once again, as a group.

obviously I'm not heavy, or even right now lightly, into WoW.  But the skill on his part is just manipulating the personal army of characters he has to work in unison.  That can't happen with someone whose mind is bogged down with bad health.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Generally minds don't get bogged down with "bad health" bodies do. To address your point, it does take a lot of skill to successfully manipulate that many characters in unison. I don't think anyone really questions that. Its the priorities one has to set in their live that I think some people here are questioning. It is a fair point to make. I am someone, who like many on here I would imagine, spends a lot of my time playing video games. It would propably be better for me if I cut back, I'd meet more people, accomplish more(provided I also broke my TV).

But to go as far as this guy has gone, it seems like you can't put this much time and energy into one aspect of your live without the other parts suffering.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

I don't think there's one thing you've mentioned that I didn't agree on.

On another note, the only skill in WoW would be man hours. Anyone who has an account could easily be skilled if they are logged in long enough.

No offense, but i'd like to see some dude who is big in WoW play Starcraft on 5 different PC's simultaneously. Now THAT would be impressive.

Its also copyright infringement

Stupid blizzard and their mdy case.

Since hes doing one/all/some of the following, hes also breaking the EULA, which in turn means hes commiting copyright infringement.

Conspiring with another race (alliance/horde) (can he conspire with himself?)

Using a "third party program" to "automate keypresses across accounts"

Using multiple accounts not unique to user.

Im also willing to bet one of the char names is similar to "roflcopter"

 

Will he get banned? Of course not. Does blizzards EULA need to be updated? Desperately.


Re: Its also copyright infringement

Wow, umm, wait, I wasn't saying WoW, I was saying "wow" you are a little bit stupid, eh? Its no great offense. Of course as long as it isn't percieved to be harming Blizzard or the gaming community and causing uproar amoung the other paying customers Blizzard will take this guy's six grand a year. Companies are run for the money baby, and this particular company WISHES it could squeeze six grand out of ALL of its customers per year!

Re: Its also copyright infringement

hes also breaking the EULA, which in turn means hes commiting copyright infringement.

How does that follow?  He *pays* for 36 accounts.  Nowhere does it say he torrented them or anything (not that that would help anyway as you'd need a CD key to register an account).

Using a "third party program" to "automate keypresses across accounts"

This is not against the ToS as repeatedly stated by GMs every time this comes up.  Google for multiboxing.

Using multiple accounts not unique to user.

Not against the ToS and it's the first I've ever heard that it could be.  *sharing* accounts is illegal but he's not doing that - the opposite in fact.  I know lots o people with multiple accounts.

Im also willing to bet one of the char names is similar to "roflcopter"

Only a problem if he's on an RP realm.  On non-RP realms you can call yourself anything you like within reason.

 

Re: Its also copyright infringement

Please explain what copyright he's infringing upon.  He bought 36 copies of the software and pays for 36 accounts.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Very impressive.

Sounds less like an obsession and more like major goal oriented.  Let's face it, he wants to do this alone in a multiplayer setting.

What I didn't read is:  Where's the money coming from?  It's gotta come from somewhere.  Hey, even if he's independantly wealthy, that's cool.

Nah, this isn't really an obsession, unless the obsession is actually to do the act he's trying to pull off, instead of the game itself.

I know the first reaction is to call this guy the world's biggest loser, but honestly I find it pretty impressive.

I've never played WoW before, and most likely never will, but I'd be lying if I said that I've never dreamed of having the perfect setup to play my favorite game. Most PC gamers have. But how many of them actually went the distance and did it? I wouldn't even know how to begin to set something like this up. It's awesome!

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

i multibox 5 characters and i can tell u it's entirely possible. no automation, automation on the live realms will get u banned. its done through a number of programs, one of the most popular being one called "keyclone." what it does is send all your keys from your keyboard to each instance of wow. he prob uses another program to send signals from one computer to another, considering i dont see 11 keyboards. not to mention the use of a lot of macros for follow and focus. check out www.dual-boxing.com it's where the story originated and where the multiboxing community hangs out :)

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

There is a nifty little thing called a KVM switch, witch allows you to control multiple systems with the same mouse/keyboard/monitor setup. I could imagine him using that, what with having that many computers around.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Multiboxing is legal - so you can have the same keypress go to multple machines.

Can't see the point myself.. you have to level multiple characters, pay multiples of the monthly fee.. and end up with a static group of characters that can only do the same things as each other and are easily defeated by a team smart enough to realize this and force them to have to do differeint things to survive.

 

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Well, multiboxing like that usually has all the characters as the same class with the same action bar setup. And in this case, it holds true too since Kotaku mentions them all being shamans and has a picture of them in a group to go with it.

He should have gone with druids though. Shamans may be a bit OP, but druids win every time.

Re: Report: Obsessive WoW Gamer Juggles 36 Accounts

Multiboxing does best with classes that frontload lots of DPS. You basically want a class so that all of them can react to the a situation with the same action. With druids, when one of them needs a heal (if you can even keep track of information at that small of a level), you either need to let them die or have all 36 druids heal, wasting mana on the heal and a shape shift.
