Since the last week i've been getting invitations non stop i tried to pest the spammer and also enabling online privacy in options but the game just crashes due to the overflow of invitations. It would be nice if someone made a patch or mod that blocked invitations or something like that

Hello, it unfortunately appears impossible to circumvent, even through a patch - our dev team has worked hard to find a solution, but didn't succeed. The attacker is exploiting a vulnerability of the ESO server itself and overloads it with invite requests, which ESO then sends to you. A patch would need to happen on ESO itself to fix this, and only Microsoft can release such a patch.

Ah ok, I had hopes that someone could fix it somehow. But thanks for the explanation

There is one man who might be able to help you... The Caped Norwegian, a 25 year old no lifer that used to be pretty good at age of empires. He turned his back on the flaming life and learned to become a motivational speaker, fighting invite spammers in the depths of the online servers of 13 year old video games. @tibia

Aiz showed me the wai of the elifent. To counteract it, use ESC to cancel the invites cos u can spam it faster than pressing the "no" button meaning you dont get overloaded as fast, u can green up inbetween it too, just gotta stop pressing esc when the game has greened up and lanuching and pray it launches fast enough. Need online privacy off to cancel them though ofc

No worries, as long as ESOC is safe this is what matters

Pressing ESC is indeed a good (temporary) solution.

Gibson taught me one of the best hacks: holding ctrl while choosing new cards. I am forever indebted to him and his sexy nipples.

OP, wasn’t there some „ESO tips and tricks“ thread? Should be added there.
