It's not going to. Maintenance mode. No new updates. The 'focus' is on Fenix now. (Ehehehe)

No, cause the ads are delivered by spotify itself. You may try Ad-Free (Werbeblocker für Spotify) - https://f-droid.org/app/ch.abertschi.adfree

Spotify can yank your account if you block ads on there as per their TOS. I wouldn't recommend it as it's best to pay up for Premium.

Not really. The ads are served directly so hosts blocking can't work.

Search the thread for alternatives.

That was the culprit.
Thank you very much.

Not sure where the right place to report issues with the hosts file is.

My router has ad-blocking software which blocks ads at a network level, and one of the hosts files it uses is the AdAway one.
It recently added the domain "ns.exitgames.com", which is used by the Photon multiplayer platform. Blocking that domain breaks any multiplayer games which use that provider.
I noticed it on Distrust, a PC game (and it worked last week, so the change must have been recent), but it sounds like the provider also provides multiplayer to Android games as well.

Did you submit this as an issue on AdAway's github?

No, not yet.
The two categories for bugs seemed to be bugs with the Android app (which it isn't), and bugs with compatibility with other Android apps (which it isn't), so I wasn't sure if the bug tracker was the right place to put it.
