It’s never fun when an online game goes offline, right? It’s made even more frustrating when this server outage is done on purpose by individuals who have nothing else better to do. Well, it seems Ubisoft is going on the offensive and has filed a lawsuit against Rainbow Six Siege DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attackers.
Ubisoft has filed a lawsuit against the owners of a website specializing in DDoS attacks for games. The lawsuit was filed in a California court, and has named multiple people. The DDoS website is called SNG.ONE, and actually sells subscriptions ranging up to $299 for “lifetime” access to the server, with monthly subscriptions ranging for $30. Other potential targets named include FIFA 20, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
According to Ubisoft, site owners are fully aware of what they’re doing and have even wernt as far as to taunt Ubisoft for the harm it has caused to games like Rainbow Six Siege. You can check out the lawsuit filing below.
As one might imagine, Ubisoft has requested the court to shut the website down, and also award damages and fees.
As someone who loves playing online games, I don’t understand the logic on why anyone would want to do this and just spoil people’s fun. Is it for attention? Money? Whatever the case is, it doesn’t justify inconveniencing other people and depriving them of their game time, no?
