As long as it doesn't give you an unfair advantage. This means wiggling and struggling macros are totally fine. Here a Screenshot of the email:
That's not what they said. They said to contact the game developers directly (clearly they didn't understand you were asking about Dead by Daylight specifically), and the game developers have said not to use them, IIRC.
I have macro built in my mouse and its fine :P
Im always using it when struggling on hook
Ofc you can. You always could.
"EAC is only interested of the use of 3rd party programs which give you an unfair advantage"
Wiggle and struggle macros do not give you an advantage, therefore it's fine for EAC. It's 1+1 right here, no rocket science.
A while back some people were complaining that they'd been banned for having used a specific wiggle/struggle macro. So go ahead and keep using them, see what happens.
They also say that developers may have specifically banned certain tools that are not being banned for by default by EAC
Using macros is a dumb idea. Since you are claiming that they are fine you should be able to provide proof that the devs allow macro use
I've used a macro for my whole 2 years of playing this game and I have yet to be banned. I just don't wanna destroy my keyboard mashing buttons
Or they were lying and used other stuff.

I. Rules of Conduct
While participating in the Game, you also agree to comply with certain rules of conduct that govern your use of the Game (“Rules of Conduct”), for example you may not:
• Use or distribute “auto” software programs, “macro” software programs or other “cheat utility” software program or applications.
The email states that developers may ban certain tools at their own discretion. It appears that by default EAC does not care about macros. The EULA however specifically mentions that macros are not allowed.
You are therefore breaking the rules by using macros and are also encouraging others to do the same.
This unfolded on another forum that was responsible for spreading the macro. Literally dozens of people complaining about having been banned, all having only the macro in common. I don't think they were lying.
Also, as Madjura pointed out, and as I mentioned earlier, the devs explicitly state that you're not allowed to use macros.
It might be beneficial to get a mod in here to clarify this. The use of a macro doesn't give you any advantage, and I actually did end up breaking my spacebar by struggling. I had to rebind it to right shift.
(Yes, I tried the "set it to mouse scroll down" trick. Doesn't work for me, and I have no idea why.)
The EULA doesn't state that it needs to give an advantage to be a violation of the rules. If that is not the case then the EULA should be updated to reflect this. The way it is currently written means that any macro use is a clear violation, regardless of what it does
I met someone in their first week of play who got banned that week for using a wiggle macro.
If you need more info on that topic, you can contact support, because ultimately it's a developers decision to allow something like that or not.
Closing the thread.
Macros are still a grey area. The EULA specifies that you're risking a ban by doing so. Like EAC, we're only concerned with situations where macros could be used to gain an advantage (e.g. botting).
If you're worried about whether or not what you're using it for is okay, you're better off playing it safe and not doing it.
