Activation has taken action against another Call of Duty Warson chat distributor, which seems like a monthly recurrence. The major publisher has filed a lawsuit against Engine Ovening in the state of California, claiming that the company “damaged Activision’s games, its overall business, and the experience of the COD player community.”
The lawsuit alleges that several members of EngineOwning have violated DMCA rules by distributing fraud, claiming that the company may not be able to sue. EngineOwning’s website prides itself on selling “high quality fraud” and that “everyone should have the ability to win and enjoy online matches.” The website is a hoax for various games developed by Activation and nothing more. The company’s offerings include 2019 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Vanguard, Battlefield V, and Hello Infinite Fraud.
The activation lawsuit does not specify how much the company wants from the engine oven, but rather states that “Activision is entitled to financial damages, restraining order and other equitable relief, and penal damages against the defendants.”
For activation, it has become common practice to take action against publishers, fraudulent developers and distributors behind the Call of Duty franchise. The company has previously removed a number of fraudulent distributors, either through legal action or by threatening to sue through ceasefire and withdrawal letters.
Legal action has been one of the main weapons of activism in fighting the seemingly never-ending flood of Call of Duty Warzone fraudsters. The company’s second tool is a new and improved anti-chat system. Called Ricochet, the new system is actually taking advantage, with players praising activation after finding fewer cheaters in their games.
