Riot Games, publisher of the massively popular League Of Legends, won a $10 million lawsuit over the weekend involving a cheating ring, which includes a court-ordered ban on the company’s websites, which Riot are now in control of. The case came against LeagueSharp, who were sued by the company back in August 2016 for creating a scripting bot that allowed LoL players to essentially “gamebreak” their way toward heavy paydays by creating accounts that they could heavily level up and sell them off to the highest bidder to get in on the game with an incredible advantage. The case was actually settled back in January and the company had until Feb. 28 to cease all operations with the bot.
LeagueShark is no saint in the matter, either. The company was cited for using a Peru-based shell company to delete vital server information and even went to great lengths to doxx an employee at Riot as some kind of vengeance over the matter. But eventually, they were forced to concede the fight, which included this now deleted quote (which is still a visible page source at joduska.me) from the company.
