Friends managementEdit

Icon dwarfmegaphone

Invite more friends.

How to establish a friendship and put someone on your friendslist:

  • the in-game option of sending a Sign of Trust, but those are expensive and many find this function useless
  • at the bottom of the screen is your friendslist/friends bar: to the right of it is an Invite button. That gets you a window that allows you to invite a friend via various networks. The magnifying glass symbol gives the option to search for users already registered; just type in the name (it makes suggestions as you type), and click invite. (Note the names are the Plinga account names, which may not be identical to the names displayed in the game.)
  • Plinga management bar
  • Plinga management bar (OLD)
  • Manage player friendslist
  • Settings
  • Plinga's Friends management ('two people with plus sign' button above the game screen) opens a menu with three tabs: Invite, Accept, Manage. Invite shows a random selection players you can add as friend (this feature is not recommended since it is not sure whether those players are active or play the game you want them for.), and allows to search for people by name. Accept shows friending invitations by other people to you which you can accept. Manage shows a list of all your friends, and allows you to delete people from the list.

Friends can be added and dismissed as Idols, Admirers and Betrotheds by clicking on the friend in the friend bar at the bottom of the screen. Up comes a menu where you can appoint to and remove the person from idols, admirers, or betrothal.

Finding friends, active or otherwise of interest to you, for adding via above methods:

  • look at the Bulletin Board for currently online players
  • check the weekly victory lists for active players
  • check Matchmaking section in the wiki's Forum
  • keep in mind that your Plinga account's friendslist is for all Plinga games, so you already have all friends you made in the other games, or can go and friend someone in another game to gain them as a friend here.
