Blizzard plans to sue Shanghai-based developer Lilith Games over its mobile game Soul Clash.
The title was published by Longtu Games in Taiwan and China as DOTA Legend, which also translates to Turret Legend. Unlike Blizzard’s Dota, the game is actually a card collection and battle game rather than a MOBA.
As well as obviously infringing on the use of ‘Dota’ in the name, Blizzard says the game plagiarises elements of both Warcraft and World of Warcraft. Many of the characters bear likenesses to the familiar races of WoW.
