Default Game Center friend request spamming?

Wondering if this just happened to me or if it's a wider scale issue, but I generally try to respond to friend requests fairly regularly. So last night I had two requests. Didn't respond to them (one reason being it takes FOREVER for GC to open the request page on my 3GS).

Woke up this morning and there were 96 new requests! I was like WTF? I know I'm not that popular.

Anyone else have this happen to them?

Did you set a #1 score anywhere?

I am number3 on the Swordigo leaderboard and regularly get friend requests because of it. =/

I became quite famous after being such a big loserz in Real Racing 3. Since everyone wants free coins cause I suck, everyone wants to be my friend.

Coin diggers!

Are they all real requests? Sometimes the GC app bugs out on me and throws up random high numbers that don't pertain to actual requests.

Are you sure it's friend requests though? Maybe someone got a game that auto-spams challenge invites?

I used to get terribly confused when my GC icon showed (X) but no friend requests, until I figured out it was challenges.

Challenges should be removed from iOS.
