No, thankfully they haven't. But they could if they wanted to- as could ea and mythic... and I doubt that whole "well it's mostly our code and the game was kind of sort of f2p" will hold up in court- which is what people are saying and where the whole gray area comes in to play.Yaliskah wrote: ↑Tue May 22, 2018 5:12 pmEpo wrote: ↑Tue May 22, 2018 4:54 pmBut you still need the car body (the aesthetic) which is the IP, which is what people are trying to put across. As there is no legal right to it.
Wrong. No need of the client to dev the server. But obviouly without a client a server become pointless... You could run the server without possessing the client. Where is the IP infringement then? But i see your point and we admit this project is placed in a grey area. As you can see, we don't use GW illustrations anymore, there is no mention of WARHAMMER anywhere to avoid any kind of confusion, we have a About page who explain CLEARLY our purpose and origins... and since 5 years, no one from GW has come here asking us to stop, even this project is well known by their side.
It sucks that azarael's and lando's code was stolen. They put a lot of time and effort to make this game better than it was.
