FBI raids pirate Lineage II servers
Massively multiplayer game publisher NCsoft has revealed that the FBI has shut down the operations of L2Extreme – a group responsible for running unauthorised servers for the popular online title Lineage II.
FBI agents carried out a series of raids in a number of US cities, and have questioned those responsible for running the L2Extreme service, which claimed to have half a million registered users. The FBI’s estimate is somewhat lower – it reckons L2Extreme had 50,000 regular players, a number which was costing NCsoft millions of dollars a year in lost revenues.
