Hey everyone,

Due to the odd nature of this issue, one of our developers has asked us to post this on his behalf in order to clarify what is happening:

The network call in question is from a 3rd party library we use as part of our launching system. The call is intended to optimize the performance of a P2P feature of this library which we do not use and do not intend to use. Note that the call is to a public stun protocol server which is, in fact, hosted by the University of New Hampshire. A future update to our launcher will disable this completely.

We hope that answers your question!

the game is sending our information to some unknown group that has a server at this university?

so its just as likely this is actually being used to secretly send end-user info to a undisclosed third party source?

it may just be some p2p mistake, but um, I don't tend to just believe everything I am told. if this player hadn't found out about it we would not even have been told by this dev that they are giving our info to some unknown entity.

i don't like this at all

Dont worry, just make sure your tinfoil hat is securely tied to your head and they wont be able to scan and catalogue you.
