    well, this is one way to deal with a situation like this! no idea how this is going to shake out, but i'm going to guess this will probably deter people from trying this with other games that bomb.

      It will deter some. But most will just hop behind a decent VPN and have their fun.

    Wait, what? They don't know who the defendants are but they're suing anyway and will late fill in the blanks?

        Ah, that makes sense. Didn't know such a mechanism existed.
