Activision Blizzard is suing the Germany based, game cheat providing website EngineOwning. The video games publishing giant has accused the website of distributing malicious hacks and cheats to players. According to the lawsuit, the publisher is seeking $2,500 for each violation, from the website.

Established in 2014, EngineOwning sells cheats for several major games. These cheats, as per the website, are undetectable. The website also prominently features the Call of Duty series of video games from Activision Blizzard on its landing page. Amongst other advantages, the website offers various exploits and cheats such as enhancements for player and radar detection, rapid fire and aimbots.

Activision Blizzard, in its lawsuit, claims that is has been committing a large amount of its resources for combatting the rampant cheating that happens in all its games. However, the continued efforts of the cheat providers have resulted in the video games publishing giant a significant loss in terms of its revenue as well as its reputation.

The EngingOwning website displays as its mission statement that, “everyone should have the ability to win and enjoy online matches”. However, using cheats in competitive multiplayer games such as the Call of Duty: Warzone, often tends to ruin the experience for a majority of the players who play them. Cheats are often responsible for breaking the gameplay mechanics. It also undermines the competitive aspect of the game for the players not availing these cheats.

Players, who are the most affected, in turn, vent their anger on the developers of the game for their inability if these issues of cheating go unaddressed for long periods of time. Reddit users have applauded this news of Activision Blizzard suing EngineOwning on /r/CODWarzone. Many even expressed their hopes that the outcome of this would in turn be a positive one for the players.

Recently, it was reported that the anti-cheat system, Richochet had banned about fifty thousand players in a day, on Call of Duty: Warzone. This only goes to show how serious of an issue this has become for the games. With websites such as EngineOwning profiting from selling cheats for major games, this problem keeps on aggravating.

Despite all the measures taken, cheaters seem to still find a way to bypass the system. Some of them even openly hacking the measures with usernames such as “@YesImHacking”. Call of Duty: Vanguard, too, since its launch, has been facing such issues of cheating. This has led some to even question Activision Blizzard’s approach to the issue as well as the effectiveness of the Richochet anti-cheat system.

Other major studios too have been facing the issue of hacks and cheat and are starting to get more and more proactive in the way in which they deal with the cheaters in multiplayer games. For instance, since last year, Rockstar has been hiring more number of cheat analysts, to deal with the problems that are persisting in its games Read Dead Online and Grand Theft Auto Online. The studio has also started taking stricter measures against the players who have been caught in the act and even suspending accounts of the offenders, in many cases, as well.

This latest move from Activision Blizzard could be bad news for those who like to experiment with these cheats and hacks. And while such hacks could be all fun and entertaining in certain situations, in the case of competitive multiplayer games, it is mostly detrimental and damaging, spoiling the essence of the game and the competition.

Such efforts on Activision Blizzard’s part will hopefully be beneficial for the Call of Duty: Warzone community that has been most affected by the players implementing cheats and hacks from websites such as EngineOwning. It is also hoped that this action will also benefit games that have also long since been targeted by such websites.
