A new report has revealed that Bungie won the lawsuit against Romanian cheat-seller Mihai Claudiu-Flortentin, which was filed in 2021. Now the latter has to pay $12 million in damages.
The accused was the one to develop and then sell the popular cheat software called VeteranCheats to Destiny 2 cheaters. It would allow them to gain an unfair advantage over other players. It offered super accurate shots and let them see through walls.
Bungie stated that the cheating has diminished the enjoyment of the game for those who did not. It has also reduced its potential revenue from in-game sales.
The lawsuit includes copyright infringement, violations of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act or DMCA, breach of contract, intentional interference with contractual relations, and violations of the Washington Consumer Protection Act (CPA). Bungie sought $12,059,912.98 in damages which included $11,696,000 in statutory damages.
