Check trophies to see if the gamer is indeed a platinum gamer then send a mess if you played with that gamer or just delete if you don't like the name tag. Stay cool you ain't a fool . Ps4 let's go .... To the future

Their trophy level and screen-name are the deciding factors for you? Um, ok...

I don't like em'! I get them quite often. Please just send a corresponding message along with the invite at the very least outlining if I played a game with you or something. Anyone else get annoyed by this or is it just me? :smileyvery-happy:


I feel you. I don't get annoyed by them, I just don't accept them.  I refuse to accept a friend request unless 1. I know the name 2. If I don't know the name it needs to have an idea of why you are sending me a FR.  Something like "from the God of War forums" or "hey great match an hour ago in'xxxxxx game' will you add me?"

 

I get 2-3 every gaming session or so. I always follow my general rules regarding FR's above.

I should have mentioned this earlier.

 

In your account settings, under privacy, you can set it so no one can send you friends invites or set it so that only people who have one of your friends on their friend's list can send you an invite (this is what I do)

I'm one of those people who send random invites, but i add them because of Wake-Up-Club; NEAR and Online Games. (In case of Vita)

 

But i don't get the point of why get annoyed. For me when i receive random invites it's like (Who is interested on me right now) and i accept those random invites, and some of them just don't talk or even doesn't play the games i like. At the end i delete them.

 

I think that we must have to be tolerant to this people, they're like a plague that we can't control.

That's rather rare that people consider themselves to be part of a plague. :smileywink:

From my personal standpoint I find it more dissapointing/upsetting than annoying.  I feel bad denying someone who wants to add me as a friend, really bad.   However, Sony only lets our FL be 100 people and mine has been totally full since 2009 in warhawk (back then it was only 50!).    So I have to be really picky, if you don't play what I play I'm not adding you..if I did add you but you haven't played what I'm playing online in months I may delete you for someone new who does play.  

That is my issue with random friends requests, they just make me feel guilty when I delete/deny them.
