They just couldn’t get away with a fine
A group of three who fabricated cheats for Genshin Impact were convicted and sentenced to prison and fines. HoYoverse filed a criminal complaint against this group in 2021.
Accordingly, this group, which was founded in 2020, was selling cheat software that allowed players to have unlimited amounts of Primogem and other valuable in-game items. It is thought that they have made approximately 40,000 sales to date, which means approximately $ 300,000 in revenue.
The leader of the group, who pleaded guilty during the trial, received a four-year prison sentence plus a fine of 50,000 RMB (approximately $ 7500), while another group member was sentenced to 3 years 10 months and 50,000 RMB, and the third member was sentenced to 1 year 6 months and 10,000 RMB.
Earlier this year, HoYoverse banned a person who leaked information and images about the game from the game and received $ 78,000 in compensation.
