Hey gang, Is there a way to manually start score wars? I feel like I'm missing something here...

I was wondering that too. Maybe it's part of the PC hub/Facebook integration, which I'm not planning on fucking around with (also I don't have a FB acct anyways).

@beard_of_zeus Yeah, you can do it through Facebook, but that really shouldn't be the only way. My Xbox live friends/ Facebook friends/ friends who have RB Blitz venn diagram has veeeeerrrry little overlap, so that sucks. All the Facebook stuff should've and could've been in the game.

You can start randomly suggested score wars through the in-game recommendations, but to choose a specific opponent and/or song, you need to use the Facebook app.

Yeah, it's kind of lame.

It's confusing...I accidentally started a score war with MildMolasses (who's gonna kick my ass) and the only way I could start a score war with another dude was to pick some "iCarly" song I never heard of.

Thanks for clarification about the FB thing.

I agree. Limiting the Score Wars and features to a Facebook app (that, even if I still used Facebook, friends aren't into games) is dumb. I understand there's free advertising to be had, but c'mon. It also reeks of the RB3 account linking that was ultimately less practical to use than just having those features in the game itself.

Has anyone else been given random non-friend people to challenge in the Recommended tab?

@sofacitysweetheart Yep, that's happened to me a couple of times. It makes no sense though because I've already got friends playing it... Eh, flaws. Still love the game though.
