    Default Larger friend list please

    I have quite a few friends I run with when I see them on and at my lvl, plus their alts if I play with them. Today I got a message saying my friend list is full. I searched online, and saw this has been an issue that many people have asked about over the past 8 yrs. Can the friend list please be enlarged ? There are abt 2000 players per server. Most with alts as well. Such a small friend list is not working. Here are a few suggestions about the friend list that I found in the forums :

    I don't know what the friend's list limit is, but when I want to add somebody I'm finding it harder-and-harder to decide who to delete!

    Please give us like 100 more or something? It's really annoying.

Many people play DDO on a casual basis and I like questing with those people when they are on. I also have many friends from specific guilds and there are a lot of guilds and I don't want to miss out on anyone, especally if I really like the guild. People also have different characters in they play. I like to be able to catch all the characters they play. I now have three main characters I play. So if everyone had three and I wanted to keep all my friends characters, I could only really be friends with about fifty people. If a server had only fifty people on it, it would probably be closed down. Finally, I play at all hours of the day and night. Lots of different people play on certain times. I want to keep all of those friends with all their characters so I am never without. That would be great.

    So that all of Bob's characters end up in one location/folder once I add them individually. Would help to know if Bob is on as people tend to play with people as opposed to characters.

    From what I understand, the devs are trying to recruit new players, and keep old ones, by offering incentives such as the buddy bonus and such. They want the game to be more social than what it's becoming. One way to promote the social aspect of this game, is to not limit how many friends we can have on our list. 150 is just not enough. I have a lot of players on my list with just one of their characters. Quite a few people on my list, I have 1-4 of their alts as well. This enables me to play with them with my different leveled alts as well. You can't realistically expect us to remember the names of every single character we like to run with, and chat with, over that limit of 150. I can remember my regulars, sure. But not the ones that I've only run with a cpl of times, but that asked me to add them to their friends so we can group together again in the future.
