Friends - left corner of screen

I find that it is not useful at all that all my friends are now listed under friends in the left corner.
I only need to see friends there who are on-line. Now I have to scroll the list to find them. I use this list when I want to whisper a friend- and when they are not on-line, I cant do that anyway.
It does look nice with the pictures- but it takes up a lot of room - and that again makes the list longer. I prefer functionality - and it was much better as it was before.

I agree about the avatar picture part; that takes too much space.

I don't mind the offliners being there (that saves me 2 clicks [because that nasty FSP reward screen is default in friends section..] if my buddy is not online and I have to write a telegram) - but offliners should be at the bottom. Sort the list first by online status, then alphabetically.

I like seeing everyone on my friends list there, however, onliners should be put to the top of the list.

I 100% agree with you, Bluep. It's very useful to have all your friends in the list and not just onliners,
but to make it more user-friendly it should be sorted by online/offline status. That would probably make
it more attractive to those who only use the list for whispering as well, since they don't have to scroll
all over the place to find the friends who are online.

Agree, but I wouldn't mind if the offline ones weren't shown either...

I HATE THIS THING...

If i want to know the class i will check the profile, if i want to know if they are online... i know since there nick shows there.
Get the older image back. Only the small point (green, gray and black) and the nick.
Now with a room with 75... it takes forever to go down the list trying to find if someone is around to send a whisper.
Get the chat list back to what it was on the 2.03. The remaining things got the chat better, but this one... no thanks.

...right, character class & level (maybe even additionally profession) should be back in the popup only.
Name, online status as a dot graphic (and town rights hat for town chats - but maybe only when there IS a hat) is sufficient.

We have two optimizations on the list:
1. Show only online friends on the bottom left list
2. Optimize the chat player list for small chat windows


Thanks for your feedback!

Alright at least for now:

  • Contact list will be reverted to the previous look.
  • Friends on chat container (bottom left) will still remain as it is except for sorting.
  • Might consider to fold offline users on chat container.

I need only to see to online stats from a friend, so I agree with this:

1. Show only online friends on the bottom left list

No improvement :( An improvement would be if you showed my friends true activity when I login. Not that they are all online/offline. Most I find should be stated unknown.

I also don't need you to tell me they are offline ;)
