LeagueSharp was in the business of “helping” some League of Legends players by providing access to a number of bot scripts which would perform tasks that can be difficult to execute for normal people. For this “help” the site asked for between $15 and $50 per month.
Last year the developer of League of Legends, Riot Games sued the site alleging that it provided the scripts to people who levelled up accounts and then sold them.
Riot Games did originally look to settle the whole thing out of court but LeagueSharp wasn’t having it and malicious behaviour was carried out against Riot. The lawsuit claims that either people working for LeagueSharp or people doing it in their name started
disseminated personal and non-public information about a Riot employee, threatened that employee, and posted offensive comments on the employee’s social media.
Once it was confirmed that the whole thing would be going to court, they began
quickly and carefully destroying or concealing evidence such as their most incriminating online posts and purporting to hide behind a Peruvian shell corporation created solely for the purpose of evading liability.
After losing the lawsuit in January, the site was served with a notice to cease operations at the end of February. The LeagueSharp site now includes a notice under the login.
