Maybe I'm dumb, but I can't find where I disable the fact that I'm receiving emails everytime someone sends me a friendrequest.

 

I've sent a mail regarding this to the customer support, because I'd rather not receive any mails.

I'm an active player, but the fact that this cannot be disabled can be considered a security hole regarding the privacy of users.

Malicious users can use this as an opportunity to spam others by sending friend requests.

 

I actually just want to stop receiving mails :P

I've changed the notification settings on the forum account, but I don't know if this applies to the ingame friend notifications. I'll have to wait and see.

Yeah, unfortunately, I think you may want to create an account with an email you don't use, because I don't think there is a fix for this issue yet. I also emailed customer support about this, that's what they said.

This is so odd. I was just looking at my settings wondering how to do this myself yesterday. I didn't see the option either. I'm not sure I'd call it any kind of security threat, but it is a nuisance.

I wouldn't mind the occasional friend request after a good game with someone. I often time want to visit with the person about the game. But usually, at least for me, 90% of these friend request emails I receive are from people I have never heard of. I wonder if anyone else has had that problem also.

Did you try to toggle off your notifications for friend request in your settings?
