Being one of the most popular live service games in the market, Fate 2 It’s no stranger to all kinds of cheats, especially when it comes to its many competitive playlists, like Trials of Osiris. However, Bungie has taken a somewhat proactive approach to dealing with cheating lately and is intent on suing cheat developers whenever the opportunity presents itself.
One of these cheat makers for Fate 2AimJunkies, try to respond to Bungie in a somewhat roundabout way. Namely, AimJunkies has issued subpoenas to Valve, PayPal and Google in hopes of showing that its deception does not infringe on Bungie’s intellectual property rights, only for a judge to dismiss it all outright.
While some of Bungie’s lawsuits are against fate The hackers were dismissed in court not so long ago, it seems the company has a better case against AimJunkies. Specifically, AimJunkies claims that Valve’s Steam Overlay is functionally similar to its cheat software. On top of that, the company also claims that someone purchased his cheater and handed it over to Bungie for decompilation, in violation of its terms of service. However, the judge found no merit in the cheat-maker’s arguments and dismissed them for “lack of personal jurisdiction and improper venue”.
Bungie explained its approach to Fate 2 Cheaters earlier this year, when the company announced that all of these litigation efforts are part of its strategy to strengthen and improve its community by removing harmful and toxic elements. Annoyances are also targeted to some extent, though cheat development services are the obvious priority target for any game with competitive playlists, especially the live service title.
While Bungie has been in conflict lately, cheaters aren’t the only malicious element the company is going after. In June this year, a fate The YouTuber has sent out fake DMCA takedowns against the admin fate The media and a number of content makers, only to receive a $ 7 million lawsuit soon after. The situation initially painted Bungie itself in a negative light, with community members assuming the company was cracking down on it fate YouTubers in general, which would have likely ruined his reputation in the short term.
Of course, the fact that Bungie is going after cheaters is especially relevant now Fate 2 The expansions are free to play for a limited time, and attract more players to the game than usual. Since the developer is keen to sue the creators of cheats, it is hoped that the odds of cheaters themselves joining the game and spoiling others during promotion will decrease, making Fate 2 More fun for casual players across the board.
Fate 2 Available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
