Is it Bots against Humans? AviaGames Faces Legal Hurdles Over Allegedly Using Bots

Seems like the publishers of Pocket7Games, AviaGames are in a bit of a pickle. Gamers are enraged to learn of a class action lawsuit against the company accusing them of using bots. This is a major setback for the company since it’s already battling with Skillz over a copyright issue. Keep reading to know more!

What’s the Scoop?

Players have claimed they were deceived by secret bots posing as human players. The lawsuit has been filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of California. It states, “Avia users collectively have wagered hundreds of millions of dollars to compete in these games of ‘skill’ against what Avia says are other human users.”

This lawsuit follows the copyright litigation by Skillz against AviaGames. The mobile game platform pointed fingers at the latter, accusing them of copying ads and games like Big Run from them. Skillz also alleged that instead of pitting players against each other, Avia pairs players with robots to ensure the house always wins.

In May this year, the case took a wild turn when AviaGames had to hand over around 20,000 internal communications files. Skillz claimed they found proof from these files that Avia used bots. AviaGames has been tight-lipped about the entire mess so far.
