Is this some subtle hint from CA telling us to wait for the Steam release?

    I won’t let that troyan horse filled with Chinese Spyware into my City.

    Thank you but no thank you.

    The Empire still hasn't gotten their FLC LL. We need Marius Leitdorf of Averland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him? For a Middenland DLC with Boris and the Ar-Ulric!

    Every wrong is recorded. Every slight against us, page after page, ETCHED IN BLOOD!

    Queek could smell their hatred, ratcheted to a degree that even he could not evoke in their simple hearts. He stepped over the old orange-fur’s body, eager to see for himself what it was they saw. But he heard it first.

    Haha maybe this is ample compensation for excluding the Trojan horse from the game itself, which obviously made a lot of people disappointed. Now it looks like we're getting our fabled horse after all! (Albeit in a different, but still Epic, form)

    What spyware?

    I hear people throw that around as if it's a cold, hard fact, so what's behind that claim?

    For example, Epic Store USED to worm its way through your STEAMdata...

    Valve's already sold all my data to whoever, so why should I care about that now? So did Amazon and whoever else I bought stuff from in the last fifteen years.

    I hear constantly this chain of argument: "Tencent is beholden to the Chinese government, Tencent holds shares of Epic therefore EGS installs Chinese spyware on computers".

    I want someone to actually support that claim.

    I will provide that info as soon as people stop saying "it's freeeeeeeeeeee so shut up!"and "Why is everyone upset with this?"

    Right.

    Because you totally have proof that EGS is filled with Chinese spyware and yet the US govt hasn't cracked down on them in the current environment.
