    The majority of permanently frozen accounts are frozen for being a shared or alternate account. This is something we actively investigate, and we appreciate players reporting suspicious accounts to us.

    If you have any questions or comments about a frozen account, please direct them through Support as the Forums are not the place to discuss account freezes, because of the sensitive account information involved.

    Happy weekend, players!

    Recently we noticed some players talking about meeting up in real life, which led to @mi7ch and I having a bit of an argument.

    I love the social side of our games. It's great that people can talk and help each-other, forming lasting alliances, friendships, even relationships! So I think it's awesome people who have gotten to know each other though the game are interested in meeting in person.

    My compatriot doesn't disagree, however he does have some reservations. For example, he is a bit uncomfortable with the idea of you guys using the forums to publicly organizing meetings, just in case somebody tries murder you and make a suit out of your skin.

    I certainly can't fault anyone for thinking about safety first, so we ask that players not try to organize meetups through forum posts, as this would make information about your location public. We'll be removing any posts like this that we see in the forums or games.

    You can choose to organize meetup through private channels such as PMs. HOWEVER, please make sure you do so safely! There are a wide variety of resources available that discuss this topic, and I highly recommend doing some reading before attempting a meetup.

    Here are a few essential tips from us:

    • Choose a public place
    • Bring a friend (or two!)
    • Make sure a few people know when and where you are meeting this person
    • Do some research - use social media to get a better understanding of the person you are meeting
    • Don't give out personal info like your phone number or home address
    • Trust your instincts, and don't be afraid to bail if you are not feeling comfortable.
    • Have an exit plan - something like another engagement set up for later so you will have a legit excuse to leave if you wish.

    Have fun and be safe!

    Terrible Joke of the Week

    Here's your lame joke of the week!

    Two birds are sitting on a perch.
    One says to the other, "do you smell fish?"

    That's it for TGIF this week, everybody! Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

    Great tips on meeting.

    I've met several friends through the game. Any meetups that have been considered that i've seen have always been organized at neutral locations not attached to any slayers and in public places.

    Having had several shall we say interesting folks try to find my exact location, I couldn't agree more on the be safe out there!

    But Raids arent the cause, maybe they should make it so you have to have had an acct 1 month before u can join a raid, just in case people are setting up accts to kill raids, god forbid

    Banning meetup talk from the forums is an odd thing to do. They're your forums, but I think you're letting your imagination run a little too wild.

    thanks for the opportunity to have input through the survey. nice change of pace. it would be interesting to see what everyone likes/dislikes or other peoples suggestions.

    Yeah, nice to be able to offer some feedback. The level-independent Location idea mentioned in the survey sounds very interesting. I hope that gets some traction on your side!

    Is there a forum topic about the level-independent Location idea already? i wouldn't mind see what other people think about the idea, and how things would play out.....

    Not yet, that was just to gauge interest on that idea. Once the surveys are in and we review the results we can talk more about it. :)
