Abstract

Right now, the friends list is bad. I am just going to put that out there right off the bat. I have heard from numerous players and even a community manager that it is not what it could be. In this suggestion, you will find some things that I think will improve the friends list ten fold. I was talking with CC and he has 4000-5000 friends on his list. Imagine scrolling through that to read a "Hey" from someone. Not fun. So, without further ado, lets go!

 

Floating to the top

Here you will find several things that I feel should float to the top of your friends list. First off, people online. Whenever people are online, they move to the top of your friends list for easy access to your friends if you want to send them a quick "Want to platoon?". A good solution to find who is online until this is fixed is to hit "Platoon" on the sidetab. Then, a list of everyone online will pop up. Second, all people who sent you messages float to the top of your friends list, wether they are online or not. I can't believe searching through 4k people looking for 1 message, what if you miss it? The list doesn't exactly scroll very fast either. Please make this more like when you get a friend request! You know how they are at the top of the friends list, right? Just make that, but for online people and people who sent you a message!

 

Opening Chat

We all would benefit if the chat would open right up to whoever sent us the most recent message. Like when you are in a platoon, you open up chat, you are in chat with your platoonmate. Sent a message to someone (not your platoonmate) while you are platooned but closed out of the chat? Don't worry, we will make it SUPER hard for you to find them again! FIX THIS. Make it so that it opens to whoever most recently sent you a chat message! If they are offline and you read their message, but someone sent a message before them, then you close out, reopen, and boom! You are at that older message! This would make it easier for people to find messages if they have big friends lists. Those on my stream have seen my friends list, maybe 100-150 people on it. I can't even COMPREHEND what 4000 or 5000 is.

 

Chat Rooms

Pretty self explanatory. Custom chat rooms you can make w/ your friends, wether it be a clan chat, forumers chat, or just a collection of your IRL friends! Like General Chat, but with 1000% less nope.

 

Friend Groups

A little less self explanatory. This would allow you to "Tag" or add certain friends into a group. They wouldn't know, only you. It is just an easier way to organize your friends list. Your groups would ALSO have the online and message floating to the top thing as suggested earlier. I would like it to go like this

Friend Requests>Groups>Ungrouped

That is my dream order of friends list stuff. For example, I would group 3145 and BBDx2 in "Defiant" or put Alo8ight and CC_Sly in "CMs" or whatever. Please let us make our own groups, don't just give us standard ones we HAVE to use. Those I gave are just examples of what I would use.

 

Conclusion

I would take being able to communicate with my friends and fans over a new tank line any day. I think everyone can agree, there is a social aspect to this game. It is LOADS of fun being in a clan, doing countdowns, doing platoons, and being a community. It just seems that our friends list as it is right now is prohibiting that, which is really sad. So, help me brothers and sisters, a day of a new friends list is upon us! besuretolikecommentandsubscribe

Love the idea. I hate the way the friends list is set up right now. Not trying to be a complainer but it can be really hard to sort through your entire list sometimes just to find a friend request. Please WG fix this and we will shower you with flowers and rainbows and... never mind, lol

This is a really good idea, and probably won't take much time to implement, either. Most flash games nowadays, by default, have your online friends at the top, because that's natural, after all. I add a lot of friends and at the end of every week I have this Great Purge where I delete some ~ 15 friends from my list if I cannot remember the last time I platooned with them.

I want platoon chat button... in garage! We have one in battle and it is even well-separated, yet integrated with team chat. The button for chatting in garage doesn't even need to be special, just bring up the window in the same system as the rest of my friends.

I like the idea of maybe a little chat bar right below the platoon window. Then you don't have to scroll through to find someone who you're essentiallu staring right at. 

Unifying TRIARII factors:

1.How much money we've spent on this game (not to mention the new parking garage required for all of our M 60's)

2. The amount of alcohol consumed while playing tanks. 

3. How much fun we have with, and at the expense of, each other

Both options would avoid scrolling.

 

This might also introduce the potential to add "random platooning".

The only thing I could add to this would be a platoon recognition. Easy to visualize.

 

Looking at friends list or platoon list screen...

Green dot - Online (this is current)

Red dot - Offline (this is current)

Orange dot - Currently Platooned (this would be an addition)

 

Oh, look at that. Now I can see who on my list is not platooned up yet so I know I can ask.

Please don't change a thing.  It's perfect the way it is.   All these complaints are just people that are too lazy to go in and delete people.

All good suggestions, but at the very least alphabetize the thing. It's a mess.

Many of us can't delete people. We want to keep the 100+ people from our clan and allied clans. I have loads of people from clans ranging from DFNT to Pincer and Sparta to Kreig. Also, lots of people add me from my streams, it is just a hot mess.

You're exactly like the person on facebook that has 3000 friends and wondered how her friends list got to be such a mess.   Just delete people.  They're not all your friends man.

They may not be my irl friends, but they are people who want to platoon with me or play games with me. I guess you just don't get the social aspect of the game, right? Some people are clan leaders or company commanders, and they have to add a lot of people to let them know when things are happening.
