I'm glad Fark filters IP addresses:

***.***.***.***

Just type in your IP and Fark will filter it out with asterisks when posted

I just checked and my IP address is 127.0.0.1. Will the FBI be by later to talk to me?

I'm sure both people that play it are devastated.

Bet they're wishing they had just kept Marvel Heroes Omega going instead of this now. Curious to see what this XCOM-like Marvel game is going to look like though...

If this was an X-Men game I'd be playing it right now and I wouldn't care how boring it was

I couldn't give even a single shiat about an IP address showing up on what is intended to be viewed only by you. If you choose to share your screen with tens, hundreds, thousands of strangers... I can't claim to have a lot of sympathy when done of those people are assholes.

I've seen a lot of games that have codes to join lobbies or debug misses that show FPS, server time, IP address, etc. And streamers just cover it with their cam or an overlay and move on.

Even if you IP is leaked, most streamers don't have static IPs, so cycle your modem, get a new one, and move on.

\Non-issue

I don't remember ever having this problem in single player games before.

It says username... Which is visible in a lot of games constantly. Avengers, it's visible in loading screens, grouping, etc. Showing a username is not even problematic.

I understand the theoretical issues with an IP being leaked, but a username has none of those issues, and is already visible at various places in the game.
