Tracking cookies in EverQuest(1)
31 July 2013
Posted in EverQuest II
Being tired or the treadmill Lineage II is right now, I decided to take a break of it for 2-3 weeks. But being a MMO-junky I wanted to play something else and decided to install some MMORPGs from the SOE stable. Those included the old-school EverQuest(1), the more modern EverQuest II and the semi old-school Vanguard.

Last night I've ran my weekly virus scan and when I checked this morning I was quite durprised by the findings...

I mean really..? SOE planting tracking cookies inside the EverQuest(1) in-game browser..? How bad have things to become when a game publisher is dropping those inside their games? They already keep the logfiles from the games for ages (and giving them away for study) and now they're adding tracking cookies as well in the games itself? Doesn't SOE have enough data of us already..?

Though I have installed EverQuest(1), I'm not sure if I'll be playing that one. The game itself might be very old-school and what I'm looking for, the UI is something that kinda kills it for me. It's one of the worse out there and very confusing for me...
