The player list is about to receive some quality of life changes. Here’s a list of the visual improvements that are going live on Wednesday, October 30th:
- Your own username is now highlighted in the player list
- The highlight color when clicking on another player’s name is now white instead of blue
- We added a hoverstate when mousing over other players’ names
Here’s a video demonstrating those visual improvements:
There were some icons that we decided to remove because they were redundant and confusing - here’s that list too:
- Friend Request pending icon
- The user is following you
Additionally, the icon will now be used for all situations where you are following someone, including when they are following you back.
Only one icon will be displayed on the player list at a time. That means you’ll no longer see, for example, the Friend icon and Premium icon side by side.
With this change, we also updated the priority of icons. Here’s a helpful table showing you the default priority of icons:
|1||The owner of the current game|
|5||You blocked this player|
|6||This player is your friend|
|6||This player sent you a friend request|
|7||You’re following this player|
|7||You follow each other (same icon as above)|
|8||This player has Premium|
All of this is in preparation for a brand new look for the player list, including a redesign for the icons. We’re also bringing the player list to mobile so every platform can view it.
