    My avast antivirus is blocking the download of the new lobby. Avast is reporting it as an Win32:MdeClass infection. This, plus the fact that the lobby has to be ran as an administrator in order for it to even work has me concerned. Any explanation?

    Seems a few people had a couple problems with their anti virus/firewall for those who still use it. Running as admin is a given, you should do it with any game/comms etc that you run. Actually a lot of issues are solved simply by running things as admin. Either mark the game as safe if you have the ability to do it or just disable your avast for the time being.

    My guess would be a false positive flag on the client because it has not been downloaded by a large enough group of people using Avast to claim it as 100% safe. I can assure you there is nothing malicious about he game/files

    I found a program resembling a large wooden horse and got a weird message that said "Bloodscar was here". After that some of my cooking recipes went missing.

    Avast is shit. Uninstall, turn on windows defender, and you will have no issues. It's that simple.
