Nexon, gameforge, aeria, trion, EA, mycom, Hi-rez (except smite). Those are definite. I personally also avoid Ubisoft, but that's personal :D

Trion CCP, Steam, IGG, Firefly Studios, Frontier Developments, Cloud Imperium Games, and any other awful companies that either ignore you, change direction do what they want, spy on you and hide hidden marks in your registry.

qotw: The guys behind I:SS (aka WarZ), if i'm not mistaking the dev and publisher for those games are the same people. I don't follow what they do, but they can change names, make new companies, it does not matter, they are still easy to avoid because, luckily, each time they put out another garbage you can easily find out just by reading the steam comments and i always read the comments.
P.S. Not a disgruntled customer here, i never bought anything from them and while i consider everyone redeemable, i don't think they will ever redeem themselves or even care to try. The fact that all their games are garbage only makes it easier for me.

Artix entertainment since they seem to not know their priorities about managing their games. But I'm not trying to single them out I've said things about them to friends and family and on social media alot to the point they told me to shut up. But I try to avoid most if not all F2P since they seem to mostly want $$$ anymore.

Free to play developer i would say i stay away from turbine and nexon mainly because either lack of updates or the steeep p2w aspect..

Other developer im currently avoiding i would say is EA after battlefront and they way they treat other titles atm its loosing its good name.
