Friend List Change Suggestions

3 posts in this topic


I find it difficult to determine who people are on my friend list.  The reason is that it frequently only shows the family name, yet when I interacted with the player, I was using the character name.  Occasionally, when the player is online, it will show the player name in parenthesis next to the family name, but this is not always true.

My suggestion would be to store the character names under the family name so you could remember more easily.  Additionally, it would be great to be able to assign a nickname and/or notes for each friend.  For example, I could enter a nickname of "Nick" to remind me that was my friend Nick, or I could add notes such as, "player who helped me ____".  An additional feature that might be helpful is if there were some quick categories (such as guild mate, friend, someone who helped, etc) that would just leave an icon for quick reference.

All of these suggestions could be added with either a hover over a name or click to get to another detail menu.  I think this would make friends much easier to manage and further encourage the social aspect of the game.

For reference, I have included a screenshot showing a friend who is online, yet I cannot see the player name.

Same here, its pretty confusing.
