War Z devs copy-paste League of Legends EULA

Well, this is embarrassing. After being accused of copying the idea from DayZ and copying the weapon interface from Crysis, War Z developers Hammerpoint Interactive have now been caught-out copying the terms of use agreement from League of Legends (and, more egregiously perhaps, totally forgetting to cover it up).

The agreement has reportedly since been modified to remove reference to League of Legends, but not before users over on Reddit took screenshot evidence for posterity. Under the “REQUIREMENTS” section of the terms of use agreement, the text read:

“In installing and using the Software and playing the Game, you acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree with the terms of this License Agreement. You must also: (i) read, understand and agree to the OP Productions Terms of Use http://www.leagueoflegends.com/legal/termsofuse (the ‘Terms of Use’).”

Maybe the most shocking news here, though, is that somebody actually bothered to read the terms of use agreement. I mean, who does that? Not even the developers, apparently.
