But using programs like loot alert, that's something i don't approve.

It is an issue if and when multiboxing automates gameplay, but as long as the player who is multiboxing is the legitimate account holder on all the involved accounts, and as long as all the characters being played are 100% under the player's control without any kind of automation involved, then we are okay with it... if we use air planes as an analogy: it is fine to pilot one plane and remote control other planes, but it is not fine to switch on the auto-pilot on any of the planes.
But you can't launch Diablo3 x4 times, you need 3-third part software to do...
Interesting Juhazzz, you don't support something like loot alert (why the hell do people even need this, blind and deaf!?) but you support multiboxing!?
In my opinion it is like botting and should be bannable.. It's like cheating, because you play with 4 chars = 4x the loot and you need a 3th party program to launch D3 4 times and also you are just directing 1 char the others are being macroed or am I wrong here?
I unfollowed a streamer because he was multiboxing, matzejiin or whatever his name was.
Again, the question of whether or not multiboxing is permitted is a very hard one to address.
You are free to play more than one character at the same time using more than one client at the same time, but each character must be played the same way you would play a single character normally in a single client. This means that one character must not react and perform actions automatically based on actions performed by another character. You can send commands and instructions to multiple characters at once, which is fine of course, as long as each action performed by each character is a result of direct player interaction and player choice.
Multiboxing characters must be controlled 100% by the player!
Edit: Edited the post for clarification purposes.

There is. They allow the legendary glow to opaque on the screen so they just look for the legendary glow, click on it, the account that had the legendary picks it up, while the other 3 just walk over to the empty space.
They don't bother picking up rares, but they get 400% gold and legendarys and farm at amazing speeds.

Yes, and other software can make only what you want to be visible show up on your screen. Still perfectly legal because all it does is make what you want to be visible and doesn't give you any additional information.
Its a loophole that blizzard desperately needs to look into.
