    Ok, time for internet sarcasm.

    Knife makers make people stab people irl.  They are so readily available and sharp!

    Convertible car manufacturers make people steal cars.  Never was it so easy.

    Produce stands lead people to steal fruit. It's just right there next to the street.

    Surfboard makers are responsible for drowning and shark attacks.  People never wanted to be that far out in the surf before.

    GPS makes people drive into walls.  But it told me to turn left!

    Video Games can be played on phones while driving.  Its their fault I wrecked!

    People break the law and blame someone other than themselves.  Oh wait this isn't sarcasm.

    It is not a total surprise that a company so big is being sued for something that They Did Not Do.  If a Pokemon Go site is located in the ocean it is up to the user to either ignore it or find a way to get it.  If they drown, are they not complete idiots or at the least unfortunate and a victim of their own actions?
    But there is a massive flaw in your logic here. Niantic REWARDS you for breaking the law or, as you say, stabbing someone or stealing something. Also, a lot of users are minors, it seems you are talking about responsible adults only.

    If a manufacturer of knives was selling said knives telling their buyers they would get a nice cash reward for stabbing someone with them, the manufacturer should, and would, sure as hell be sued. Especially if those knives were also being sold to children....

    And yes, people are stupid, adults and children alike. Unfortunately many studies have shown that people will do anything to be rewarded or if they are being told to, in real life or virtually, this has been known for centuries.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    'This does not apply just to ED but SC or any other game. What they will get is Rebirth/X4, likely prettier but equally underwhelming and pointless. 

    It is incredibly difficult to design some meaningfull leg content that would fit a space ship game - simply because it is not a leg game.

    It is just huge resource waste....'
