Do you have 88 Million Dollars? Run a Private WoW Server!
If you have 88 Million Dollars lying around collecting dust you could use it to run an illegal World of Warcraft server. You may make a bit of money in the beginning but at some point you may need that 88 Million to pay off Blizzard!
A private server company, Scapegaming run by Alyson Reeves, lost a lawsuit and was ordered by court to pay Blizzard Entertainment over $88 million in damages.
Scapegaming was operating illegal World of Warcraft servers which earned him just over $3 million.
The other $85 million of that settlement was for ‘statutory damages’.
