The 155-page complaint was actually filed in a California federal court last year, and contains a laundry list of game elements and mechanics, such as the map geography, buildings, weapons, pre-game lobby, air jump/parachute mechanic, shrinking map size, the “Total Look and Feel”, and more.

The suit ends with PUBG requesting NetEase stop distributing each and every version of RoS and KO, as well as stop supporting and developing them.

According to the original article, NetEase has not made any comment yet. Moving forward, it’s up to the courts if PUBG’s case holds any water.

ROS dipped themselves to a game that required permission from PUBG. Instead they took the idea and made money for themselves. Disregarding ethics. ROS MUST PAY THE PRICE. Ignorance is no excuse.

Lol cunts, get your facts right, PUBG was released first on March 23, 2017 whilst ROS was released on November 15 , 2017. And since PUBG is a paid game it has less cheaters unlike ROS which is free, if ur account gets banned then just make a new account.

Yeah I admit ROS and KO has no rights to copy the mechanics of the game, well lets say that ROS is an oppurtunity to try the land of battle royale game of the gamers who cant aford the PUBG. So i think just request the NetEast to cange or remove mechanics copied from PUBG , plss dont shutdown the GAME T^T plss..

They can copy the mechanics, but they shouldn’t copy the words and other things that PUBG has.
Fortnite should be sued if they can’t copy the mechanics. It’s allowed though, but Fortnite is entirely different.

Who says Original is the PUBG and ROS? Never heard of DayZ? They really started the idea of ??games like ROS, PUBG, H1Z1 and more. Yes, the big difference of DayZ to others. There is zombies here. But same gameplay as ROS and PUBG or Fortnite or any games like them. So those who say that PUBG is the first of the ROS, and ROS only copied to PUBG, Remeber Dayz. Dayz is still developing. Skl (I just fought is, in the PUBG and the rest. Sorry if I still do not know much earlier than DayZ)

DayZ server is dead Brendan Greene made DayZ battle royal mod and a Arma 2 and Arma 3 Battleroyal Mod and until he partnered with bluehole and made PUBG and until Netease saw Battle royal genre is Popular then they made ROS and Knives Out. PUBG is suing them because they almost copied PUBG there trademark and the gameplay its not different like Fornite Fortnite is a Battle royal too but they did not copy the trademark of PUBG
