The new Chat and Friend list came out yesterday, but I couldn’t post, because I was at my school’s homecoming football game. Anyway, here’s some info on the new Friend List:
Buddy List (Now called friend list)
The things circled in red are new things. One, best friends. You can now select best friends so they’re always at the top of your list. Two, it shows a picture of your friends, and their location. The find button on the player card is now useless. Something I forgot to circle, the find penguin bar.
You can search for any random penguin and make a request. I even sent a request to one of CP’s random penguins that they use in videos, called Your Player, and one called Tour Guide. There is no longer a limit on friends, and the only way to see your ignore list is through settings (now looks like a gear on the chat bar). See above post for info on Chat.
