    1st Investigation:

    2nd Investigation:
    https://twitter.com/RomireVids/statu...07061688938497

    Someone is going to owe a lot of money to various game developers... At a glance I could recognize at least 4 games they stole art assets from.

    Back when I was on MySpace, there was at least one game that stole Warcraft assets (human mage)

    They used art assets from Heroes of Newerth, League of Legends, World of Warcraft and Hearthstone to create a game of their own. If they did not have consent from the developers of those games, they can expect to be sued for quite a bit. If they take it to court and loose, they will most likely also have to pay the fees for the companies involved.

    check the trailer, they may have recolored a few things in photoshop but you can easily recognize characters such as Ashe and Garen, and as you pointed out they have WoW characters on the loading screens.

    https://www.facebook.com/4playgamers...type=1&theater
    That link clearly shows a Dwarf from WoW in Ironforge with parts of the character creation UI from wow. Granted they used different icons, but those were ripped from Heroes of Newerth.

    https://www.facebook.com/originsoforder

    the character in front clearly has a badly cropped Varian Head. And one of the cards in the background is clearly the same image as Freljord Ashe with Woad Ashe coloring.

    They also claim on their facebook page that they did not steal any assets...http://50.18.219.198/forum.php?mod=forumdisplay&fid=92

    cropped varian head is used for one of the forum icons.

    Think that IF pic is a fake as it's just an image. They wouldn't be that stupid for sure, lol. It even says alliance and horde.

    True it may be a fake... but the official website has tons of images from other games. They even have the ashe ripoff in the trailer.

    Varian has a privilege to be featured even on the MAIN site. As a mage, yay.

    And I'm pretty sure that the middle of the 3 bottom screenshots features no-one else but Garen from League of Legends, but well... the character itself is pretty unimaginative, so it could be just generic handsome knight in shiny armor and a big sword.

    Noticed this game earlier, showed it to a few friends, we all laughed, we're awaiting the lawsuits from several game companies just going to slam them to the ground.

    Is coming up with new ideas really all that difficult?

    I swear, I should get in on the mobile app business... Pull a candy crush or angry birds and rip off some popular easy puzzle game genre that takes a month or three to program and push through and then be set for life. At least they had the decency to not steal art assets... (Actually, that's not 100% true in Candy Crush's case...)

    Is that picture on facebook actually from the game? Saw this trailer and it doesn't look anything like it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pVDY02OOxM

    Makes you wonder if this stuff is even real. If it is, the award for "insert silly name here" go to them. Or something.

    DOubt it, probably some Chinese or Russian company that created this and probably not worth the effort of suing them since the laws over there are not as strict as they are in US or Europe for example. Look at all the clothing, jewelry and electronics knock-offs that come from China. Damn near impossible to sue them.
