Hi all:)

Anyone know how you get rid of this , that's if you can.


Its the "invite friends and get rewarded" box that pops up on the screen if you are inactive for literally a few minutes.

Its very irritating.

Nope, no amount of anti malware can rid you of this.

Hello My dear Lord.

The ''''invite friends and get rewarded'''' pop up is a security feature that is aimed at Bots program, automation programs and similar cheats. Since such programs use scripts that run best in timely process, the random pop up message will make such program ''confused'' and thus stuck to continue its process. 

Human players can easily avoid such by going to league/global chat, if your league chat/global is active, then the pop up likely no occur./ be delayed But will occur after sometime. 

Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.....Gedleyihlekisa: Oracle the postremogeniture

and yet it doesn't really work to hinder bot's and said use of bot software. If they wanted to throw a spanner in the works for bots, they should make captcha login mandatory for every new session.

That actually sounds like a good idea. Why not add it to the Suggestion thread?

Actually it's not a security feature, it has no affect on bot programs (any decent programmer can easily make the bot account for the pop up, it only takes a few lines of code).  The pop up is to save plarium's servers on computing power, because it pauses certain game calculations that are run when an account is logged in.

I suggested that to plarium about a year ago, not sure why they decided against it.

By punishing violators we should not punish fair players. Don't forget that any additional clicks and pop ups could be annoying for players ;)

I don't mind a captcha login between sessions if it greatly helps vs bots. About any online game I play got a login procedure, doubt you would annoy much with such that is more or less a norm everywhere.  

Your invite a friend pop up flashing all the time is far more annoying. Actually all the spam I get in Email from Plarium is annopying too.  Particular when the unsubscribe option doesnt work.

What email service are you using?  My Gmail account automatically blocks their mails as spam I think, because I've never received any.
