The Friends system in Tanki Online lets you keep your friends even closer than before!


Friends list

In the lower bar you can see the Friends button.

Clicking on it will open up a menu that stores the nicknames of all your friends.

If a player has already been added to your Friends List, his/her nickname will be highlighted in the battle statistics table, battle info and in the chat. You can also look through all "incoming" requests.

Sent Requests

The Friends system supports a search function that allows you to send requests even to players that you don't see in battles or in chat.

To create a new request, you need to:

  • Click this button: AddFriend button.png
  • Enter the name of the tanker you want to send a request to, then
  • Click on this button: SendFriend button.png

NOTE: Only a person that has confirmed your request will be added to your list.

Incoming Requests

This tab is used for displaying all incoming requests sent to you by other players. You can accept a request or deny it. You can also use the search function to find a specific player from the list.

Once you add a friend, an exclamation mark will appear by the Friends button. Once you click on it, your friend will appear at the top of your list and the system will register that you have seen the name of your new friend. The next time you open your Friend list, he will then be placed alphabetically with other friends.

Attention! {{{3}}}

The above means that if you already have 50 requests in your inbox, and a player tries to send you a new friend request they will get an error saying your friend requests are full right now. At the same time, the list of all friend requests sent will be removed, to improve performance.

[[File:You can have 300 friends in your list at the maximum. If someone tries to send you a request, they will get an error saying that your friends list has reached the maximum capacity. To add more friends once you reach this limit, you will have to remove some existing friends from your list.|50px|link=]]

Context Menu

A context menu can be opened by left-clicking on a player’s nickname wherever you see it. If you are in the Lobby, the menu will look like this:

You can use this menu to:

  • send a message to that player
  • copy the player's name
  • send and accept / deny a friend request to / from that player
  • invite that player to a battle (only for users in your Friends' list)

When you receive a new incoming request or another player accepts yours, an indicator appears on the "Friends" button. Make sure you don’t miss these notifications.

If you are viewing the Friends' list, the menu will look like this:

You can use this menu to:

  • copy the player's name
  • invite that player to a battle (only for Friends currently online)
  • view the associated profile

How to find a friend in the game

If your friend is in a battle or in the game, you are able to see what mode and type of battle they are playing in at the moment in your Friend's menu. You can also join a friend's battle directly from the Friend's menu if you happened to get an invite but missed it.

Removing players from your friends list

You need a confirmation to delete someone from your friends list. If you decide to remove a friend, you will also be automatically removed from his or her list. Keep that in mind.

Inviting friends to battles

Update 196 added a new feature to the friends system. Now players can now invite their friends to battles.

To do that, just enter the battle or select it in the list of battles. Then open the Friends menu and left-click on the nickname of the friend you want to invite.

A context menu will appear. Click "Invite to battle".

Please note that you can only invite friends to battles that are available at their ranks.


If someone invites you to a battle, you will get a notification in the top right corner of the screen.


If you don't want to receive invites from your friends, you can always disable notifications in Settings.
