True but the argument says the game created damages. Based on his reputation prior to the game, I don’t imagine it was damaged sufficiently. And for that matter, most of the people playing the game likely assumed he was a fictional character, which would also suggest no damage was made. The damage argument will be tough sell (as well sales based on his name and likeness being in the game), I think, but using his likeness without permission is still not cool in my book.
Yeah, the points also contribute to the prizepool. There are some who have massively leveled compendiums in the 100s, some in the 1000s while most people remain around the 50 mark for their levels.
