Ubisoft is suing cheat provider Mizusoft for allegedly promoting “hundreds of thousands of dollars” worth of Rainbow Six Siege cheats.
As spotted by Polygon, the French studio created the accusation in a lawsuit filed on October 23, and claims that MizuSoft operators are promoting a selection of cheat applications that give players unfair positive aspects by boosting weapon harm, expanding their field of vision, and highlighting enemies.
MizuSoft has created no attempts to hide the reality it really is a cheat provider, and claims its a leader in the field that creates “highly effective but user-friendly computer software,” and has also boasted about obtaining a clean detection record.
These practices, according to Ubisoft, have triggered it “irreparable harm and harm,” with the studio adding that its organization depends upon its games becoming enjoyable and fair for all players.
“The Cheating Computer software destroys the integrity of Rainbow Six Siege (R6S), thereby alienating and frustrating reputable players. Defendants’ sale and distribution of the Cheating Computer software, in particular in the United States, has triggered serious harm to Ubisoft, which includes irreparable harm to its goodwill and reputation. Defendants are nicely conscious of the harm that the Cheating Computer software causes to Ubisoft,” reads the lawsuit.
“In reality, Defendant J.V.L not too long ago bragged to the media that his Cheating Computer software ruins R6S for other players. He also readily admitted that if he have been to be sued by Ubisoft he would have a ‘tough time’ defending his conduct.”
Ubisoft is looking for maximum statuary damages for the alleged violation, and is also demanding that MizuSoft cease all operations. At the time of writing, the business seems to have bowed to the latter demand, with a post on the MizuSoft site explaining it will be ceasing operations as of October 24, 2019.
