Greetings all. I've been away from the community and the game for almost two months, and upon returning tonight and logging in, I have been utterly bombarded with spam chats by players with random user names. I've enclosed a screenshot - be aware that I've already closed most of the chats that were waiting for me. Most of them were advertising for someone else to play my account and earn money etc but some were blank.

 

Has anyone else had this? Has my account somehow been hacked or compromised?

They all think you are a soft touch. Send them some gold and they will go away.

Well I was in a battle just now where a teammate got killed early on and spammed the map for the entire battle from that point all the way to battles end. It was annoying for a while but then I started wetting myself laughing he just kept going and going and the players were all rage reporting CLIK! CLIK! CLIK! CLIK! CLIK! CLIK! "report!!!" CLICK! CLICK! CLICK! CLICK! "***** idiot!" CLIK! CLIK! CLIK! CLIK! CLIK! CLIK!

Works for me, just a quick transfer of gold and I'm gone

I guess they get your name from low tier games, avoid those and you'll be fine.

Well they gotta get their name from somewhere to spam it. I've not seen a single one. But the lowest I've gone of late is tier 4. And the old gold sellers from 2013/14 when they were an issue last did spam everyone they faced on tier 1 games. Tho, most that have posted here have not been on in ages. And they see 5+ messages in the garage after being away for weeks. So then it's gotta be a website somewhere they have been to. Who knows.

 

Then again. I suspect using the block PM option works. As in only ppl on your friend list can send to you.

I haven't had any spam. I don't even have imaginary friends. :(

It's not. Even a casual browse of the first couple of pages of the forum should net you half-a-dozen threads complaining of the same issue.

My imaginary friend keeps giving me bad advice...especially after a few beers, they are more trouble than they are worth.

He said to tell you that no, he doesn't and by setting the fires you'll be helping them out in the long run. HTH

My imaginary friend said "Don't come back to tanks, play Dark Souls 2 instead, it's more fun."

 

Today's games ended with one win and eight defeats. My imaginary friend might be right: we might finally have found a game that's actually less fun and more frustrating than DS2 :hiding:

Dark Souls two is a cash in game, map is dead end corridors and come back again drivel. The original Dark Souls is a masterpiece of flowing multilayered maps and an fascinating story with no absolutes as such. Prior game Demon Souls set a solid foundation but Dark Souls is imo one of the finest games ever made introducing a really interesting PVE PVP combination with pros and cons for taking each path. Gank options and troll options, sure.... but I used a cracked claw thingy to draw more PVP. Want to get schooled? Press the red eye and prepare to get parried ;)
