Creating new account inherits pending friend requests from early access
I had an account during early access.
After offiical launch, I created a new account with the same name as before.
As soon as I clicked “create”, I received two friend requests.
I assume these were pending friend requests from before the official launch.
Which means that if someone creates a new account with the same name as a previously used account during early access from a different user, the new user might inherit friend requests from the early access phase.
Steps to reproduce:
- Have pending friend requests on an account from early access.
- Create new account with same name as old account.
- Immediately receive old friend requests upon account creation.
New accounts should not inherit anything from old accounts (as they might be a different user who just coincidentally chose the same name).
