Court documents obtained by Polygon target several individuals behind “SNG.ONE,” a website that sells DDoS subscriptions. With tiered memberships, their website reportedly allows individuals to easily target Rainbow Six Siege services, alongside other top titles like Fortnite, Call of Duty, and FIFA. Ubisoft reportedly looks to see the services shut down while granting damages and fees.
“The DDoS Services represent an enormous threat to R6S and Ubisoft. The DDoS Services have caused, and are continuing to cause, serious and irreparable harm to Ubisoft, its valuable player community, and its business interests,” the document claims.
“Defendants are well aware of the harm that the DDoS Services and DDoS Attacks cause to Ubisoft. Indeed, Defendants have gone out of their way to taunt and attempt to embarrass Ubisoft for the damage its services have caused to R6S. For example, a Twitter account operated by one or more of Defendants has repeatedly mocked Ubisoft’s security efforts, including Ubisoft’s efforts to ban individuals utilizing Defendants’ DDoS Services.” The lawsuit also claims that defendants published a fictional seizure noticed on a website, in an effort to “hastily sought to conceal evidence.”
The lawsuit follows various efforts to combat player frustration in Rainbow Six Siege, tackling hacking, boosting, exploits, and more throughout 2019. Legal action marks the latest step in this initiative, as Rainbow Six Siege prepares for the Year 5 kick-off in February.
