Probably one of the strangest lawsuits League Of Legends has ever been involved with, parent company Riot Games has lost a lawsuit in a Dutch court to former soccer player Edgar Davids. Davids sued the company over using his likeness without his permission for a skin in the game. The character called “Lucian” pretty much looks like Davids, as you can see below from the dreadlocks and the signature glasses he used to wear on the field.
Riot tried to argue their way out of the situation, but a 2014 tweet from the former Riot QA analyst Baconhawk did them in as he made the comparison three years prior. As of right now, the court is demanding that Riot reveals to auditors how much money League Of Legends has made off their skin and will determine the appropriate amount of compensation based on the sales. Considering it was one of the most-purchased skins when it was launched, that may be a pretty penny! Or, in this case, a glittering guilder.
