Oh dear. Over on f13.net, a post claims that City of Heroes players have been contacted via private in-game messaging and the forums by Cryptic asking if they would like to join the Champions Online beta.

Following up, Massively found a post on the City of Heroes website stating:

“It is unfortunate that people do this… but we also recognize and accept the fact that ultimately, we do not have control over the messages our customers with valid accounts send one another. Although we cannot stop someone from initially communicating with you – whether it be RMT (real money transaction) related, another game company trying to lure you to their competing product, or general spamming…we are in a position to investigate the situation (and potentially take action) once a solicitation has occurred, for it is a direct violation of our Rules of Conduct and EULA (End User License Agreement).”

Remember: rumor.
