USA Lineage II player Craig Smallwood is suing the publisher for $3 million dollars because he found himself playing Lineage II for 20,000 hours over a period of 5 years. At times, his average play session would persist for over 11 hours, crippling his life and ability to function. A federal judge is allowing the court case to go forward, stating that the plaintiff has a claim for negligence and gross negligence against the publisher.
