View Full Version : Global Friends!

I would love to see DDO revamp their friend list options, and allow players to add friend by character AND by account.

Currently, players have to manually add each and every character a friend has to see whether they are online. If that friend creates a new character or is playing on a different server, then you are left completely in the dark! Given that DDO players often have many alts, often across several servers, I believe Global Friendlists would be of great benefit to most players.

Another popular MMO (I'll refrain from using its name, just for safety sake) manages to make amazing use of Global Friends options. Players can even chat across different servers, in order to coordinate better ("Hey Bob, haven't seen ya all week. Wanna switch over to your level 10 on Kyber and run Tempest Spine with us, since we know how its your favorite quest?").

This Quality of Life addition would make great strides towards a more cohesive community, and a good step towards tweaking DDOs basic mechanics to be more competative and current.

Wold love to be able to at least have a cross server friends list if not chat too. I have a friend from another MMO game and he's been playing with different toons on different servers and it's a pain to log on to one server to see if he is on there and if he's not log out and log back in to another server. It would be so much nicer if I can log on to one character and look at the list of my friends toos and see what server he is on if he's on.

The downside is people wouldn't be able to get on another toon if they just wanted some time to themselves.

There is always /anon mode. Besides which, anyone you kinda are friend with but "not really", you could simply have them add your character and not your account.

This is really just a convenience and quality of life issue, but it is a very important one to me. With so many players having so many alts, and with myself playing characters on multiple servers, it would simply be *fantastic* to be able to see when my "Super best Buddy Who I Always Duo With" logs on Sarlona, even if I'm on Orien. Y'dig?
