    Stop the spam friend invites

    There is no way I am being friend requested by players EVERY TIME I LOG IN.

    How can I disable my profile from being spammed from friend requests???

    It IS very odd. I went ahead and accepted a load of unfamiliar names and found that most of them were playing fortnight. How do they even get our names? And why bother? Does Fortnight give you some kind of ELO for being popular?

      The kind of people who play fortnite are, I theorize, more like MMO types for whom more friends = easier time gathering a party for X objective. They become UT4 lookie-lous for a few hours, spamming friend requests along the way and then go back to the safety of crowd-based games.

        Makes sense. I would personally rather have actual friends on a friends list. Then again, I've never played an MMO so what do I know.

          also I think a lot of us here were in the first wave to create Epic IDs. So most of us have the easier more desirable names, instead of P@yB@C|< or something stupid, I just have PayBack, which I think a lot of people who might see PayBack_ or something and not realize the underscore.

            Can I get a spamly friend request

            But seriously: If ya'all werent so good, no one would be carin'.

            But even more seriously: Linux players get no friends on UT. (Social functionality disabled.)

              I once got a friend request from some random account called FREEUT4CHEATS4YOU, or some equally trolly variation of it.
              Otherwise all my recieved request have been from real and serious players, to some degree at least, a few are Fortnite players for sure.

              If I was a Fortnite player who stumbled alone into UT4 for the first time, i'd probably try to friend someone who seemed to know what he/she was doing to.
