All these random friend requests from players I have nothing to do with in the game is annoying, giving noobs a list of suggested friends is spamming our friend requests.


Please remove this item and let them invite friends from their respective leagues and people they actually communicate with in the game.


Thanks

Do you mean in the game or on game portal?

I get a couple dozen friend requests from players I have nothing to do with that are playing games I don't play.  Plarium has added a feature that "suggests" friends.  I don't want random friend requests.  I have to delete them every day.

Could you please illustrate this feature with a screenshot so I could make sure I understand what you mean and pass it to devs?

I agree!!!  I have enough people on my Friends list legitimately without getting spammed by random players looking to fill their list.  At least give us a way to DELETE people we don't know and don't want to deal with?  It seriously messes up the trading and makes the "Friends" filter pretty much useless.
I think, therefore I game.

I agree!! I have to delete at least 10 a day if not more. If I don't know the person or in the same league or alliance then they have no business being on my friends list

You see, I have no clue who are these guys and why was it recommended for me. Now, by pressing that green button anyone can send random friend request. Imagine getting friend request from bots lol.

I have over 600 friends so unless someone sends me a friend request I ignore the suggested friends. A beginner might use this before joining a league after that my suggestion is simply ignore any Suggested Friends.

that does not STOP the annoying friend requests we receive, we have to clear them out constantly, i have 25 sitting there since my last log in, we get new members joining our league and i have to weed through the garbage to find them.  Its people using the suggested friends feature that are sending the requests.  That is the problem and most of them don't even play on Stormfall or the Stormfall server I am playing on.

It's seems you misunderstood my statement. Read the second and third sentence carefully. And find the correlation with the posts that I quoted.

Thanks for the screenshot. That's exactly what I needed to know. I will ask how those friends are suggested.

@Jezebel, There are many development teams in our company, and each one has different responsibilities. I needed to know where exactly do you see suggested friends to refer this issue to a corresponding team.

Our devs say that you see friends of your friends in Suggested. That's if you have any friends of course. 

If you don't have any, you will see there people who were active during the last few weeks and don't have any friends or have few of them.

yes at least do this please http://prntscr.com/cd2faa 20 more after clearing 25 earlier, these are not friends of my friends they are low level players and a lot do not play the same game


this feature is not required when a player joins a league they can send friend requests to those people as is required by most leagues

I'm still hoping for a DELETE option so I can clear out some of the inactive's or totally irrelevant "friends" I currently have. 
I think, therefore I game.

You can delete them, but only within your Profile. It won't work from within the game.

It all started when you added the suggested friends feature.

Remove that and the problem will go away.

I will add my voice to the people extremely annoyed by excess and unwanted friend requests. Its also a topic that comes up within the league quite regularly. From my experience it is a hated feature. Have yet to find anyone that likes it.
Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation
