    Ea cant read pm. Pms are not readable not even for admins unless they read the phpbb and that still violates privacy. They do read the forum and also remember they can create accounts and ask for pm as a user and get the info

    Very true! !
    I notice from former fight clubs there was a fix the same day I spread the knowhow true PM on my neighbors.
    Now I did not spread and still no fix also with the mountain move knowhow.

    So between my neighbors there is a EA guy/ girl I think.

    **** still very happy with the cyberattack fix !!!
    Woohooo! 8)

    Thanks OP for the second edit to the first post. Your question is legitimate (ie. is the glitch an easter egg), but the level of detail wasn't specifically needed to pose that question, so thanks for that editing. Now if we could just get subsequent posters to modify their posts....

    But I have to agree with most, I can't see how this could possibly be a feature/egg. It essentially defeats the purpose of this entire Act.

    Always looking to add active forum members! But please PM me first.

    All you have to do is request a PM in the Act 2 Mystery Thread. 75 pages of people's requests is far from being exclusionary and cliquish.

    I agree.

    And aside from that enough detail from this thread is being spilled that anyone reading it would probably be able to figure it out. What gaps were missing from the OP have been filled in by subsequent posts.

    I'd be surprised if anybody didn't know how to do it after reading this thread honestly. :roll:



    Some people just have to ruin it for others... :roll: :roll: :roll:

    There's realistically a 0.01% chance that EA didn't know about this issue/glitch well before this thread was created. I mean, a nearly 80 page thread of people requesting PMs...I'm sure that caught their notice.

    There's no question this glitch makes it easier to finish this Act, by a lot. But to truly reap big rewards, you have to have a tremendous tolerance for tedium. Huge help for the event, but only the true masochists among us will turn this into a giant payoff.

    For all those who feel left out and excluded...How hard is it to request or send a PM. The regulars here spend a lot of time helping people with issues, many of us by direct PM to not clog up threads. To start posting details and whines works directly against the community here. Its not that you are excluded, but that you are excluding yourself. Every person who directly PMd me was responded to.
    To start threads that are pure boasts or attempts to put out detail, such as a number of other threads have, offends our sense of community. Its not that people are being excluded. Discussions are great and part of what makes this forum fun to be on.
    Unsolicited friends requests are all denied.Please PM me.

    I wouldn't mind receiving the PM out of sheer curiosity.
    Act1 was the first time in my 4 years playing this game that I had to rush a final task because I couldn't reach the goal in time (despite already purchasing some of the premium items)

    edit:
    Thank you all for the PMs

    Can someone pm me a person that I can do this with? I don't think I can use any of my neighbors.

    With the patch, it is confirmed.

    This was a mistake.

    I don't even know why this post exists. It serves no purpose but to gain attention. I bet it is posted after the advantage has been fully used.

    Fight Club was a bit of a miss for me, early on asked for a PM, nothing, then I PM'd a few that said it was working for them (and were online) and got no reply. Eventually just by reading the thread I pieced together exactly what you had to do and this was within the first 6 pages so if I could figure it out then EA could too.

    In the end I did get a PM reply from one person and I forwarded it to 5 others that were asking, figured I'd pay it forward.
    But my mum says I'm cool

    Wow.

    I go offline for an hour and someone crashes the party, and then the authorities show up. Party's over.


    If this WERE FightClub, we'd all want a round with you NEXT, OP.. :roll:

    Admittedly, I did talk openly about the amount of currency I had, but I did NOT ever talk about how to replicate the glitch or how to get it, only in PMs. And I even edited messages that included what people had quoted.

    Unfortunately, the OP had how to do the glitch up on this thread for at least 4 hours before finally removing it all, after we requested numerous times. So, there you have it!

    Oh well, just laugh and move on. Be happy that it happened, not that it's over. 8)

    The problem with asking on the thread was that it moved so fast at times. With the CAPTCHA, there was no way to do mass broadcasts at once to everybody that wanted a PM, so some people were missed along the way.
