Extreme online gaming: World of Warcraft "Dual-Boxed"

Until today I was unaware of a rather fascinating thing called "Dual Boxing" which might be interesting for those of you who like computer games (or have a dual/multi monitor setup at work ).

In Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPG) a player can win many challenges only in a team, sometimes a rather big team is advisable.

Apparently some players play these quests with more than one account simultaneously, for fun and to become less dependent on other players. This can require multiple computers and high subscription fees. One gamer states that he annually pays over $5000 in fees.

Two extreme examples with some impressive photos:
1 gamer, 36 accounts
2 gamers, 46 acccounts

With this performance, I can only hope they don't start trolling on EF.

None, that particular genre never sparked my interest.

Forum accounts on the other hand...
