Popular League of Legends Script-Maker Shutdown, Must Pay $10 Million Fine

Riot Games has won a settlement against League of Legends subscription cheating service LeagueSharp.

Riot said in the initial suit that the company was "dedicated to destroying the LoL player experience, harming the LoL community, and subverting Riot's game (and its community) for its own profit". "We apologize for any pain we've caused to players of League of Legends". As a result, the game company filed a lawsuit, where U.S. District Judge Ronald S.W. Lew recently ruled in favor of Riot Games, Dot Esports reports. Additionally, all of LeagueSharp's software has been banned.

Armenian reports aimed at disrupting ongoing humanitarian operation, Azerbaijan says

The service charged between $15 and $50 per month, allowing players to execute scripts to alter the game, speed things up to insane speed and ultimately level up League characters more quickly.

It was reported that LeagueSharp, through its charges for its cheating tools, was earning monthly revenues that reach hundreds of thousands of dollars from tens of thousands of subscribers.

Little Tikes recalling pink 2-in-1 Snug n' Secure Swings
Parents should stop using the swing immediately and contact the company to receive a credit toward another Little Tikes product. The company can be contacted by phone at 888-284-1903 or online through the product recall page on the company's website.

The lawsuit is another manifestation of a get-tough policy Riot is bringing to bear on those who either violate the game's terms of services, sell League of Legends cheats, accounts or services on the side, or both. It took seven months for the United States court to sign off on a settlement injunction, awarding a $10 million payout and control of all websites under LeagueSharp to Riot Games. According to Engadget, LeagueSharp reportedly attacked Riot's servers and revealed the personal information of a Riot Games employee. Riot was also granted ownership of Leaguesharp's website (though it's not clear what they'll be doing with it). Riot's complaint says that after it contacted Kaufman, when he was operating the site under another name, he agreed to comply with Riot's policies but then changed the site's name to DivineSmurfs and continued the business as before.
