Call of Duty Cheat Vendor Apologizes (and Closes?) After Lawsuit

A post on Reddit captures a Discord message from CxCheats after the cheat vendor was sued by Activision for offering Call of Duty cheats (thanks PC Gamer). The website and their Discord have since shut down so the message is no longer available, but it offered an apology for the "pain" they've caused:
As some of you may know, Activision Publishing, Inc has filed a lawsuit against CxCheats.net and has made it clear to us that our services violate their Terms of Use. As a result of our lawsuit with Activision, we have agreed to cease development and support for Call of Duty related products or services sold through the site. These products will not be returning to CxCheats in any form. You should also be aware that using third-party tools in Call of Duty may result in suspension or banning of your account by Activision Publishing, Inc or the games developers. We apologize for any pain we've caused to players of Call of Duty.

Imagine if Epic games could actually do something with their Easy AntiCheat acquisition and all of that money instead of suing everyone.

They only care about making money, not interested in terms of service or regulations. they'll just mark up as a different company and off they go again.

i have no sympathy for the cheat sellers, but why would they be bothered by Activision's terms of service? As far as these are binding, don't they only relate to Activision customers?

Hire them to find the flaws in your system that get exploited by cheaters.

Indeed. This sort of cat and mouse game is unwinnable, there is way too much financial incentive and many of the hacks are from poor countries or countries with governments that give zero fucks about our IP law like Russia/China. The money is better spent on preventative measures rather than reactive litigation.

That's not how EA sees it.

Well, this was Activision, or were you referring to something EA-specific?

I know I had a stroke but I think I read that correctly.

That was my bad... To save wear and tear on my tendinitis I've taken to using speech to text translation to transcribe the numerous pictures of text statements that have become so commonplace on Twitter and other places. I just failed to proofread the output carefully enough. Sorry about that.
‘caused to players‘
That’s hilarious. I’ve been using text to speech when I text on my android phone and also when I type on my iPad.
My texts are so bad it’s just a joke between me and my friend.
I tend to think that the Apple product does a better job of translating than Google. But that could also be due to the fact that I’m outside sometimes when texting and it has problems with traffic noise, which is understandable.

It's amazing that this news isn't more common, Blues should have its own daily section of hack sellers being taken down. Videogames are multi-billion dollar industry, bigger than film and television combined. hack sellers directly attack that bottom-line. Why isn't there a more concerted effort on this front?

My guess is that the dinosaur legal system you have to navigate through is filled with non techsavvy people in general, so approaching any old lawfirm and asking for an injunction against this stuff might make their heads spin.

There should be a squad of lawyers who actually understand tech that can cut through this rather simple problem like a hot knife through butter.

It's not like an insurmountable problem. You'll never get 100% of hackers, but 99% of them are just script-kiddies who download something from a website that makes their aim perfect. That shit should be open and shut.
For your transgressions you shall be labeled a shill, called an idiot and anytime you mention facts or disagree with a tribe member you will henceforth be known as a troll. The best you can hope for is that the labels won't haunt your offspring. -RedEye9
