I made another alt a while ago, just to mess around with a totally different playstyle.
Can anyone explain to me why Blizzards’ default, built-in friends list is not shared amongst all of the same faction characters on a server?
This is not a statement about addons. Talking about what some 3rd party independant programmer came up with will not advance the discussion at all.
Why did Blizzard implement a friends list… and then make it so, if you make an alt, you ahve to manually write down every friend name and then create them on your alt?
I applaud that, after three years, they finally let us add notes associated with the names of each person on our friends list. Occasionally, I’ll talk to someone that has a recipe or pattern that I know I’ll need crafted some day, and I’ll ask them if I can look them up sometime in the future to ahve that crafted, and they say “sure”. It’s nice to be able to add them to my friends’ list, with a note that says “Can craft Bracers of Deep Thought” or “can carve Solid Star f Elune” or whatever.
And it’s also nice when I have a friend with 7 alts that do not follow any kind of naming convention (I’m looking at you, Melpo and Tikky) to be able to note “Tikky alt”, since they might only log into them once every two months.
My friends list is full. We could talk about the bullshit behind that, but later.
For now, think about the sheer bullshit involved in ahving to go in, write all those names down, and then enter them in for each alt.
They’re my friends, right?
Unless I am a freaking spy, behind enemy lines, deceiving everyone on a stealth alt and hiding from the world, WHY the hell would I NOT want to have my friends list on my alts so I can se when my friends log in and out?
