I'll say one

WZ Idle is a branch of Warzone, and not the main game.
Warzone, is the main game, and was released before COD: Warzone.

Well, let's count!

There are apparently two free-to-play Warzone games in the market right now and both of them were released around the same time.

Warlight/Warzone was released way earlier. Count: 1

The first is obviously the battle royale phenomenon by publisher Activision. The second though is web-based incremental strategy board game “themed around conquering the world.”

If they're talking about the order of release, then this is obviously wrong. Count: 1.5

The said web-based game is called Warzone Idle and was released by publisher Hasbro in 2020.

Not going to explain that one... Count: 2.5


Anyways, the article says the following:
"According to a complaint filed by Activision in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, the web-based Warzone.com game has threatened the publisher to seek “massive damages” for trademark infringement in addition to restricting the publisher from using the Warzone name or using trademarks in relation to the name.

Activision has hence sued the maker of the incremental strategy board game and wants the Los Angeles federal court to declare Call of Duty: Warzone has an independent intellectual property and which does not infringe any trademarks."

Does this mean Fizzer has threatened Activision for using his game-name? That would be extremely interesting.

Warzone, the real one, was last confirmed in October 2020 to be catering more than 80 million players worldwide.

That must have taken so long to write.

Anyways, I'd like to say, who the hell writes the website.

By the way, they are literally saying COD is the real game.
To heck with them.

Yeah, that article is not objective in any way.....

They clearly are either incredibly stupid or ignored some easy to find facts cause it would ruin their case.

I think they are saying COD is the real one because they are a mainly COD online magazine.

I've read through the whole court case Activision is filing. Looks like it's going to be a tough ride for Fizzer. Let's hope he wins!

So this the real reason for creating idle. Baiting them into a frivolous lawsuit that will blow up in their faces... hah, genius!

Yikes, scary fighting a big company, knowing that they can afford to create an expensive legal battle.

It might be a very uninformed opinion, but imo this can only really mean good things for Warzone (the real one 😉).
Afaict, worst case scenario is that Activision wins and is allowed to use the Warzone name (which they're already doing anyway) and Fizzer has spent a fair bit of money on legal support. But Fizzer would get a fair bit of publicity for WZ.
Best case scenario - Fizzer gets a lot of money, publicity, and the name.
But I'd be interested to hear people's opinions on who has stronger legal ground to stand on!

Hm... I don't want to jinx anything here but when there is a "Norman" lemonade on the market it's probably a bad idea to bring out a "Norman" whiskey while a "Norman" car brand is OK. What Activision seems to be going for is indeed a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declaratory_judgment
