In the latest patch, Noelle at gbx said the below statement about monitoring gameplay and adjusting things as necessary.
I’m curious if anyone understands this more clearly. For example, I understand that SHIFT accounts probably feed data like player stats and build information to gbx, but how do they monitor bosses? Are they simply watching YouTube uploads or does SHIFT share more details about specific bosses, such as engage time, etc?
Also, is it possible they’re peaking inside our actual gameplay without us knowing, using the spectate feature that is implemented in the Takedown when a player dies? I actually assume they’d be allowed to based on some term of service or another, but I was just more curious than anything if there’s info out there explaining this.
