Excessive Tracking in Avalanche Games

In this Generation Zero example Generation Zero, players are spied by in-house trackers throughout the game session. In addition to an active heartbeat function, Avalanche takes the right to record every user action. The products include online coercion, a paywall that was subsequently implemented, as well as a function for displaying advertising.

 Involved Adresses

Avalanche products use a number of different services and platforms. While theHunter: Primal uses the multiplayer functions of Steam, for example, theHunter: Call of the Wild ™ is equipped with the Epic Online Service (EOS for short).

Second Extinction uses Microsoft's Azure Playfab, which is in no way inferior to the Epic Games, Inc. service.

Incidentally, connections are hidden with the help of Cloudflare, Inc. Behind the social components are telemetry services, combined with online coercion without which Avalanche products can only be used to a limited extent. But the term social always sounds better.
