GameCenter "Challenge Spam" :/

Is this the death of GameCenter? I thought GC was just kind if getting off the ground and starting to resemble a real multiplayer community (minus some very fundamental shortcomings like messaging, etc), and ever since the jerks who developed Extreme Road Trip 2 decided to add the "challenge everybody" button, it seems like the new "thing" to do. I used to love getting challenges in Super Hexagon etc, but that's because it was limited to who received the challenge, and was purely for games I ACTUALLY OWN. Now, I get challenges to beat people's shitty scores in games like Can Knockdown and Happy Street 375 times per hour. Is this the beginning of the end of Game Center?

I hope it's not the beginning of the end of Game Center but they definitely need to sort it out. The excessive challenges for games I don't even have on my device or own is ridiculous and bugs the hell out of me.

I have had this problem is well. They really need to limit challenges only to games you have installed on a device.

Currently Playing: Pocket RPG, Tentacle Wars, Oh My Heroes, Minigore 2, Mini Motor Racing, Eufloria, Swordigo
