Using 2 characters to cut 1 fence does not make it go any faster. It just makes him an idiot fot chopping 1 fence with 2 characters.

No. Multiclienting is when you use more than 1 client to control the same character. He is using more than 1 client to control more than 1 character.

I don't know why it is that way, whether intentional, or a freak of the programming code, but it has been that way as long as I can remember.  From personal experience, two different characters on two different computers chopping the same fence seems to SLOW DOWN the process.  I know it does not make it faster.

I don't think it has ever been 'illegal.'

What I have heard is that you can only chop 1 fence every x amount of seconds. I've also heard that x is 5 seconds, but that seems kind of long to me. So with 2 people chopping 1 fence at the same time, it only allows 1 chop per 5 seconds, so one of the people is chopping for no reason.

basically, it has to do with delays and client refreshes and the like. I don't remember if it's freak programming coincidence or not.
