The maker of the most popular bot for Black Desert has been forced to take his creation offline following a lawsuit started by Daum‘s European branch. Reddit has uncovered the lawsuit, which is requesting 500 euros for each client using the bot as well as personal information regarding clients, presumably to ensure that the players can wake up to a nice shiny ban.
The bot creator’s site has been taken down for the moment, with an apology to users and a promise that something else is being worked on in the near future. It remains to be seen how far the case will be brought, although there is now some legal precedent for suing and shutting down popular bots with online games. It’s good news for players who dislike bots and bad news for people who like them, in short.
