OMG not again: we're being force-spawned to E3 AND the Hub

46 replies 616 views Edited Jun 6, 2013

Folks:

 

Got a surprise when I logged into Home: a "Thanks for preregistering at E3" telling all the cool freebies I'm now entitled to on the 11th. Then got force-spawned to Hub.

 

Oh well -- time to get friends to send invites to their personal spaces ... because I don't want to spawn in Hub! Not to mention the fact that I really DON'T want the E3 freebies. With every involuntary freebie that I receive, the chance rises that something I have in inventory gets forced into storage. Not to mention the greater risk of even inventory favorites getting pushed to storage with the new cloud stuff in Home.

 

Lots of people enjoy getting all the freebies they can - and more power to them! And lots of people LIKE spawning in Hub - and more power to them too!

 

But if you want to avoid either or both, have friends send you PSN invites from their personal spaces. If they're not there, you'll spawn in Harbor Apartment. Less noisy than the Hub. And no people whose clothing items are downloading to your console.

 

Don't forget that these friend invites last a long time - so you can use them whenever Sony decides again to force you to a space you have no interest in seeing. SO save them and use them to log into Home!

 

Hope this helps a few!

It's actually a good tip to those wanting to avoid the Hub spawning, but I don't think there are any E3 rewards currently available in the Hub, to worry about clogging your inventory with. You have to go to the designated E3 spaces to get any of those, correct me if I am wrong.

I logged in with both my accounts earlier today and I wasn't forced spawned. Hope that hasn't changed.

8 more days till FFXIV beta...can't come soon enough..

I actually foolishly went ahead and bought some dances and night clubhouse last night because I am so insanely bored, and come back tonight to THIS...good thing invites work....

I literally can NOT log in without an invite, or it takes me over 10 minutes, on my main account...literally...I counted. Even after clearing cache and deleting and re-installing.

.......8 more freaking days......-_-

Same here -- it's only "late afternoon" logins where it's happening. Which is why I'm trying to warn people now :-)

The first time the E3 pre-register in navigator appeared, I spawned in the Hub, then after I did the E3 thing, it put me back in the Hub. Since then everything has been back to normal.

You only get force spawned if you pre register for the first time. Any time you log into Home after you're already pre registered, you should load into the nav.

Yes I was spawned to the Hub. Oh boooooo! LoL

 

I had already pre-registered yesterday so that's not a factor for me at least.
