My experience in the global chat

curious about others's experiences.

i've been in the game for a while. been active in alliance chat but haven't really used the global chat until yesterday.
in these 2 days, i got the following:

just by entering the chat and saying anything:
  • people invite me to their alliance
  • random people send me friend requests

people send me friend request, i accepted immediately. they never said anything, or only said "hi" or similar, once.

people invite me to their alliance after i told them i already am in one

one guy sent me a friend request only to ask for my gender (at this time i have an avatar of the opposite gender, i can't help it D: )
i assume he was a man (and had a punisher avatar. how manly...) , i am a man (and had a gwenpool avatar. how manly...) , told him i'm a man, he didn't ask anything else. sorry, i have a 4 star antman and i wanted to have him as my avatar but i'm missing a catalyst to rank him up. it's not my fault D:

one guy sent me a friend request to ask if i wanted to trade my other account for his secondary account (i never said anything about having another account, and no one in chat mentioned anything about anyone having multiple accounts, he just randomly added me and brought the subject out of nowhere. and yes, he literally started the conversation with "hey, want to trade your other account with mine" (something along those lines, i forgot the exact words) and for a good few seconds i was like wtf, and when i told him i only had this one account, the last thing he said is it didn't matter anymore because his second account was better than mine (man, if you're reading this, that was NOT cool :( ) )

people add me to ask me for help to recruit (yes, being aware i have an alliance, they ask me for help in recruiting for theirs)

sometimes i enter the chat, say anything, and someone randomly sends me a friend request. when i accept, some of them never say anything, others only say hi.

people add me to ask to merge my alliance with theirs

one time, i get a friend request. it's only one friend request. i immediately go to accept. i lift my finger and am about to tap the "accept" button. when my finger reaches the screen, i see i have accepted someone else. yes, they're so fast, by the time my finger reached the screen to accept someone's request, someone else managed to send another request in that fraction of a second.

whenever i enter the chat, almost all of the posts are people looking for an alliance, or people recruiting for their alliance.

when recruiting, some people just copypaste the same message over and over

most recruiters look for people to clear AQ map 5 (what about map 6? )

ocasionally i see people that are in an alliance, looking for an alliance to join

one time, someone added me and the first thing they say is "i know you're the leader of your group". (you know that feeling you get when someone has been watching/following/stalking you for a while? yeah)

for some reason no one has been capable of giving a proper answer whenever i ask how to get tier 2 alpha catalysts

my experiences visiting the global chat the past 24 hours. can't wait to see what other stories the future has in store for me :D

    I've had similar experiences. I even get friend requests/alliance invites just by posting on here or by posting screenshots on FB.

    I avoid global like the plague. Never find anything useful there except maybe a duel target for events (but Trucos posts that on their FB page).

    I actually joined my current alliance thanks to global chat. was looking to leave the alliance i had spent a long time in since i more or less outgrew it. had spent a day or two checking recruitment on the forums and started going down the list of alliances only to realize most had already filled up. jumped into global for a sec and saw a group looking for someone around my level doing the exact content i was looking for. so much happier now.

    It's good for recruiting in low tier alliances but after that it is garbage

    *voice dripping with sarcasm* Global Chat? I've never heard of any Global Chat... I tend to stay away from global, just because, you know, you can't be sure of anything there. It generally talks about alliance recruitment, which I don't need, and whatever is trending at the moment, which I don't need to know about.

    I usually just troll in Global...I was testing out the Kabam word filter one time by putting alternative characters to see if Kabam filtered it or not... and shortly after, Kabam banned me from sending in game messages for almost a week.

    Theres a lot of trolls, pedophiles, hackers in global. Just make sure you don't reveal any personal information on global, otherwise s*** will happen.

    @HeroBoltsy, avoid using orange and goldenrod since they are the colors used by the mods

    I usually just send them my credit card info and they leave me alone. But then I get these weird charges on my card.

    Anyone know how to get rid of those?

    Contact your bank and see if they can track down activities from your bank account.

    I've never come across a pedophile. Must be too old.

    Should have been around during the Gifting Events, or as I like to call them, Begapalooza. Lord. The amount of neediness is real.

  • Back when having a featured 5 star dupped was a big thing, I jumped onto global chat for about 10 mins when I got Ghost rider as my default avatar. I got alliance invites, friend requests and felt worshiped as if I was a rockstar.

    Probably the best experience I've ever had on global.

    Otherwise i usually see the trolls trolling the n00bs. And in early days I use to troll the trolls.

    These days I stay away from it. I think that's were you catch things...

    Global chat in a nutshell:
    -Any gurls on????
    -Join my ailance(that's how they spell alliance), we promote officers
    -Give me a 4* champ please
    -Who wants to tra7de accou7nt add me

    But SOMETIMES, it's actually useful, my current alliance leader found me because I was looking for alliance on global chat
    When I didn't know Mcoc Trucos or Mcoc infobot, global was my reliable duel target source
  • A what chat? I only have an alliance chat. Never tried the global thing.
  • GunzoGunzo Posts: 719 ★★

    Yeah, I use cyan now. I was just curious if orange would work since the mods use it.

    1. This is one of my favorite threads on here in a long time
    2. I reached a new level of begging last week when someone I do not even know private messaged me directly here on the forums with "can you send me a gift?"...that was the complete message....

    Global is pretty toxic depending on who is on or not. I know Im always recruiting on there because I need members who will fit my alliance's needs. Recruiting from a leader's stand point, is very tiring and very boring. There is almost no point in it at times.

    Yeah, global chat is cancer now, but it's still better than Forged to Fight, the clone of Mcoc
