Riot Games' lawsuit against the League of Legends botting service Leaguesharp has come to an end with a $10 million payout for Riot, and the legally-mandated shutdown of Leaguesharp's services. The suit, filed last summer, alleged that Leaguesharp was a "gamebreaking" service that let unscrupulous players earn money by "creating and selling accounts that have been artificially leveled," and that Leaguesharp itself pulled in hundreds of thousands of dollars per month on it.
The lawsuit settlement was actually reached in January, according to an earlier Score Esports report, and Leaguesharp was given until February 28 to cease operations. The victory came despite efforts to avoid the hammer that Riot claimed included setting up a shell company in Peru, destroying evidence, and doxxing at least one of its employees. Eventually, however, Leaguesharp was forced to concede the loss.
But the final settlement, as reported by Dot Esports, also grants Riot a $10 million payout, a court-ordered ban on the software, and control of Leaguesharp websites.
