The Activity Tracker was the first player facing feature to use Quasar in it’s infancy (before we really knew it would be what it is today).
There are a lot of things we want to change around that behavior to use the more mature aspects of Quasar, because they simply didn’t exist at that time.
The client uses the same technique as the server: a separate thread for transmission and serialization.
Chat is a more complex problem and a good example of why Quasar is so important. Chat is not actually separate. There are tentacles from the monolith that are still attached which result in the issues that are present. We are definitely targeting those.
