Blizzard Sues a company over a cheat tool to give players advantage in Overwatch. I have to say am glad that the CHT never made anything for this game. But also I think we should remove any other trainer/editor for any other Blizzard game on here. Just in case... Because I do not wana see CH being sued. I know some folk would be like meh. But I rather be on the safe side. This article came from the BBC News Tech Section (Link).


Games developer Blizzard is suing a German company over software that offers gamers advantages in its popular first-person shooter game Overwatch.
It is taking legal action against B******d at a court in California over the "cheat" tools for that and various other titles.
It said that the tools lost it millions of dollars in sales and ruined the game for legitimate players.
But the German company said a US court would have no jurisdiction over it.
"Blizzard's business depends upon its games being enjoyable and fair for players of all skill levels, and Blizzard expends an enormous amount of time and money to ensure that this is the case," the games developer said in a statement.
"The B******d hacks destroy the integrity of the Blizzard games, thereby alienating and frustrating legitimate players and diverting revenue from Blizzard to defendants."
The B******d cheat tool W*******r T****t offers Overwatch players variety of features, including making enemies visible.
Blizzard already has 10 other continuing legal cases against B******d in Germany.
But the chief executive of B******d, Zwetan Letschew, told news site Torrent Freak (Link) that he was surprised by the latest legal action and asked why it had taken "five years" for Blizzard to act.
He added B******d had not yet received the latest complaint.
Howard Rubin, a partner at law firm Bird and Bird, said the US court would have jurisdiction over B******d, because "it is likely that the licence agreement is subject to US law".
And Blizzard has previously won similar cases - notably against MDY Industries, which creates similar tools.
But Mr Rubin said Blizzard would nevertheless face an "uphill struggle" in its case against B******d.
"They are pursuing the contractual angle - that this is a breach of the end-user agreement - and that the use of cheats induces a breach of contract, but I don't think that they will be successful," he said.

**Edit**
As requested I have censored the company name and the tool name. Even though these can be found via the links provided. Note I do not advertise or condone cheating on MP games. I have mailed user awaiting response if none I shall put the names back. (Response received).

Yes, they have done this before with some of their other games like WOW which are also strictly multiplayer. We have never created cheats for any of their games that are strictly multiplayer or in which variables are stored on their servers. We made single player cheats for their games until they started adding anti-cheat and banning players for using them in SINGLE PLAYER MODE, after which we retired the titles. We have never been approached by Blizzard to remove or stop producing any cheats for any of their single player oriented titles, which of course we would have done so immediately.

As always, our policy is to not create cheats designed to work in a multiplayer environment. Never have and never will.
