The Friends system in Tanki Online lets you keep your friends even closer than before!
On the upper bar you can see the Friends button.
By clicking on it you open a menu that stores the nicknames of all your friends.
If a player has already been added to your Friends List, his or her nickname will be highlighted in the battle statistics table, battle info and in the chat.
Also you can look through all the "incoming" and "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 the chat.
To create a new request, you need to:
- Enter a player's nickname at the bottom of the "Sent Requests" menu;
- Make sure that he or she has been found in the database;
- Click "Send".
Only a person that has confirmed your request will be added to your list. You can always see the list of players that haven't confirmed your request yet in "Sent Requests" menu.
This tab is used for displaying all the incoming requests sent to you by other players. You can accept each request or deny it. You can also use the search function to find a specific player from the list.
A context menu can be opened by left-clicking on a player’s nickname wherever you see it.
You can use the same menu to send and accept friend requests. You will also find additional functions in the chat that allow you to copy a player’s nickname as well as send him or her a message. Experienced players can use the "Ctrl + left click" combination to send a message to a specific player without using the context menu.
An indicator appears on the "Friends" button when you receive a new incoming request or another player accepts yours to make sure you don’t miss anything important.
How to find a friend in the game
If your friend is in a battle or just in the game, you will see a link to the battle or the server in your Friends menu. Battles with your friends in them are always in the top of the list and show the number of friends in them. Currently, the nickname of your friend over his or her tank in the battle itself is not highlighted.
Removing players from your friends list
You don’t need a confirmation to delete someone from your friends list. If you decide to remove a friend, then you will be automatically removed from his or her list as well. Keep that in mind.
Inviting friends to battles
Update 196 added a new feature to the friends system. Now players can 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. Choose "Invite" to battle in it.
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.
Finally, now you can see a number of the server next to each battle link in the friends menu.
