Blizzard seeking $8.5 million in damages from cheat-making company

Blizzard has filed a lawsuit against German-based company Bossland, a major manufacturer and distributor of cheats for the Blizzard game Overwatch, for $8.5 million.

Bossland has allegedly been selling various programs that allow players to cheat in Overwatch. In the motion Blizzard filed Friday for default judgement, Blizzard seeks a minimum statutory copyright damages of $200 per exploit sold, and Blizzard argues that there were at least 42,818 sold.

This isn’t the first complaint that Blizzard has filed, as it filed one last year 2016, but Bossland failed to reply in the 24-hour ultimatum, and has yet to defend itself in any manner.
