SocialService Invites don't set FollowUserId

SocialService Invites don’t set FollowUserId

Using SocialService to prompt game invites does not properly set the FollowUserId property of the players that join the game using the invite.

Reproduction Steps

  1. Use SocialService to invite a player
  2. Check the FollowUserId property of the player once they join the game
  3. See that their FollowUserId is 0.

Expected Behavior

I would expect that if a player accepts a game invite from another user, they would have that user’s UserId set in their FollowUserId property. Currently, this does not occur.


Bump, I get the same result. The FollowUserId is only set if they click follow on the players home page, not through an invite.


Bump again, is there any chance this is going to be resolved or acknowledged? Kinda kills the point of rewarding players for inviting their friends to play with them because it only works if they join off their friends profile.


This occurs when you invite someone through chat and when they join through that chat button FollowUserId is not set : ( kind of pointless to have this feature if it gets sent through chat when a player is invited



Bumping again because this really needs to be looked at. Defeats the whole purpose of inviting friends into the game.
