Riot Games Receives $10 Million in LeagueSharp Lawsuit

The lawsuit that Riot Games filed last summer against the League of Legends bottling service LeagueSharp has come to an end with a $10 million payout for Riot, and the immediate shutdown of LeagueSharp’s services.

The suit accused LeagueSharp of “game-breaking” in a manner that allowed unethical players to make money by “creating and selling accounts that have been artificially leveled,” and thus enabling LeagueSharp to pull in hundreds of thousands every month.

After concession, LeugeSharp posted the following statement on their website.

“As some of you may know, Riot Games has filed a lawsuit against LeagueSharp and has made it clear to us that LeagueSharp violates their Terms of Use. As a result of our lawsuit with Riot, we have agreed to cease development and support for LeagueSharp and any other tools related to Riot Games – You also should be aware that using third-party tools in League of Legends may result in the suspension or banning of your account by Riot Games. We apologize for any pain we’ve caused to players of League of Legends.”

In addition to the massive payout and court-ordered ban on the software, control of the LeagueSharp websites were handed over to Riot.
