Destiny 2 Cheat Seller Loses Lawsuit and Now Owes Millions of Dollars. Bungie, the developer of the game Destiny 2, has won a lawsuit against a seller who provided cheats for the game. As a result of the lawsuit, the cheat-seller, a Romanian individual named Mihai Claudiu-Flortentin, is now required to pay $12 million in damages.
The accused individual was responsible for creating and selling the widely–used cheat software, VeteranCheats, to players of Destiny 2 seeking an unfair advantage. The software enabled users to achieve super-accurate shots and provided the ability to see through walls.
Bungie has stated that cheating has significantly reduced the game’s enjoyment for players who play fair. It has also impacted the company’s potential revenue from in-game sales.
The lawsuit filed by Bungie against the Destiny 2 cheat seller included various charges such as copyright infringement, breach of contract, intentional interference with contractual relations, violations of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and violations of the Washington Consumer Protection Act (CPA). The damages sought by Bungie amounted to $12,059,912.98, out of which $11,696,000 were statutory damages.
