Riot Sues Makers of League of Legends Cheating Software
Riot Games last Friday filed a lawsuit against LeagueSharp, a cheating software for League of Legends that automates gameplay, locates enemies and boosts accuracy, allowing players to gain experience at an inhuman rate. In the lawsuit, filed in California, Riot alleges that its 67 million LoL players per month are disadvantaged by LeagueSharp, an “enormous threat” that they say has drawn tens of thousands of players.
Our take: This is interesting, in that I believe it is the first time I can recall a larger entity outright suing a cheat/exploit maker. Usually settled out of court, so this will be an interesting one to track.
