I can attest that I fell for it also. but then again, i had just moved a planet a few hours prior so really had me puzzled lol.

And yes was a nice joke. I even messaged back asking what it was for and received this in reply lol

It could have been much much worse... and I think BFG knows it.  Personally, I'm surprised that it was even possible to make an account with that name... let alone other possible names which could lead to mass confusion/hysteria.

An interesting outcome (until word got out) was that players initially, and not surprisingly, were curious as to why they were being investigated.  When told that the investigation was on-going and that the first message they got was automated, most players expressed their thanks for having been notified.  This might actually be something that BFG might want to consider doing... I would certainly have appreciated knowing when BFG was in my account messing around in the past

It's also worth noting that most players were quite friendly after realizing it was a prank... I was really surprised how many people genuinely thought it was funny :) 

Of course, there were a couple folks, such as the folks at BFG, who weren't amused.

Thats because you have to have your sense of humor extracted as a new hire ..  Dont care what anybody says, damn fine, and damn funny!

“And he who wields white, wild magic gold is a paradox. For he is everything and nothing. Hero and fool. Potent, helpless. And with one word of truth or treachery, He will save or damn the earth. Because he is mad and sane. Cold and passionate, Lost and found”

(feeling just a teensy bit disappointed at not being important enough to be included in the joke)   :-\

Also wondering how many felt a sudden restriction in blood flow upon receiving it.  8)

spamming from the leaderboard ain't easy... it's 6 clicks to send a message after all.  Besides, we all know that there are no newbs in the top 100 that would fall for such a scheme like those around the rest of the game *rolls eyes*

The sad thing is, there are still people out there that would like to speak to support... and would even like to be friends (see pic below)!

Well my crew got it as well and all I can say is; See what happens when the boys get bored, BFG?  Let's get some action in the game....
