Why this decision? 

Nothing was said in the patch notes

1. Future cross-platform support. Which was openly discussed by the developers long before the update released.

2. Everything was said in the Patch note. You just need to actually read it.


Server Administration and Multiplayer

To future-proof our game, including allowing us to use the latest anti-cheat and expanding to other platforms later on for future crossplay capabilities, we added Epic Online Services (EOS) to the game. For regular players this should not have any noticeable effect, you do NOT need an account on Epics platforms. EOS only knows your SteamID which is public anyway and matches that to an ID for EOS that is only valid for 7 Days to Die.

The change for server administration is in the user IDs that are used to store data and reference players, i.e. the filenames of user files, IDs in the serveradmin.xml or console output / commands which now refer to the user’s EOS ID.

I usually play 7DTD in Steam offline mode. And I found today that this Epic Online Service is constantly flooding game console with its http requests. Of course, EOS can't reach its server from my offline PC but it is trying nevertheless.
