Hey everyone. I've been missing from the scene for a while now as the hex dev's fix the bugs and get everything in working order. Well, Today i received an email that brings me back.

It's titled "HEX North America registration email subject", from noreply@gameforge.com

and the body of the email says "HEX North America registration email body with parameters email validation link:" and contains a link that I will not post here.

Did someone try to log my keys, or was this something I should be clicking?

Nothing in my email (Europe though). This sounds like a scam, which is a little surprising at this stage.

Nothing either but again I am Europe. It is conceivable that account registration is starting soon, and it would make sense to stagger registration. The @gameforge.com address adds some credibility. Perhaps fishing for personal information, link to harmful site, or maybe looking for confirmation of the transaction ID to dispute ownership. I think you are wise to post here first and wait for a response from CZE. I would have thought if this was happening then the Friday Update would have given a nod to it at least.

Looks more like a bug in some software on Gameforge's side, but it's impossible to tell without the link.

Nothing in my inbox (east coast US). Did you ever use Gameforge's site to log a ticket?

I'll check in on this. Can you please provide your player name (family name), beepharoni?

I am beepharoni in game, as well as on the forums.
I accidentally clicked that link this morning when someone from gameforge sent me a private message.. if it's a keylogger, i'm screwed :(

the link led to nothing, and i instantly ran a spyware/virus check.. so I am hopeful that I am safe.

Shaq, if you want I can forward you the email so you can see it yourself...

Hey all. Yesterday a handful of emails went out to players during a hardware test from Gameforge. Those emails were sent by accident, but were legitimately sent by our system. You can disregard those emails. Thank you.

Heh, figured it was some test for when beta comes around and need codes/etc. to be sent out.
