Friend List Empty

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

title pretty much. It seems like it's not being loaded or displayed etc. to the client as sending a request to an "ex-friend" gives you the message that you're already friends with that person. 

My block and spammer lists seem to be fine though.

Cheers.

 

PS: The issue is quite rare. Nobody from my raid group seems to have it. I just know of a redditor that reported it as well

Hi @aKaidesu,

 

we weren't able to replicate this behavior on our side, hence we would need more information. Are you still encountering this issue right now? And if so, could you please let our Customer Support Team know that you are having this issue? They will have a look.

Hi @Baskerville,

Yes the issue is still present. I will contact support. Maybe send some more people their way when they need more data.

Cheers

ive been stuck with this bug for several months and im rather saddened that this is still a probelm and yes i understand you cant replicate this but there must be some reason why a few players are still experiencing this problem to this day and why these players have gotten this problem in the first place id happily send my bns data to you if it means i can sort my problem but all i got when i asked with support was this is a known issue and we are working on fixing it well seems like this issue is still here nearly a year after i got it i know its not your fault but its just frustrating

I got hit w/this this month, so did another friend who asked me if I had deleted them from my friends list -- told them no, and told them mine had been blanked.  Asked if they still had any entries but they didn't have any either.

 

FWIW, I did clean out both of my block lists recently, but that was a few weeks ago.  I don't think I'd done that before.  It's possible I hadn't added any new friends to the list though, since cleaning it -- maybe I added a friend more recently though, and it cleared the list soon after?  Not sure .

 

Question: where is the friend list stored?  I noticed files (in my Documents directory, under dir 'BnS', under dir 'NCWest', i.e. if ~==my home dir, and my documents dir is just named "Documents", then at

"~/Documents/BnS/NCWEST/") that seemed to contain a block list for each character, but didn't notice anything resembling a friend list.  Seems like it would be common to all characters on an account, but nothing looking like a friend list.  I was hoping the friend list would be there along with the block lists, but either it was in a separately named file that was gone all-together, or it isn't kept in the same place.

 

Does anyone know if the friend list is normally in the same place (different filename) as the block lists?  The fact

that the file was missing, entirely, might indicate why it was empty in game.  I was hoping to find the friend file to see if it was empty, but in absence of any file looking like a friend list, could mean

1) I have the wrong location or

2) whatever deleted the friends in game resulted in an empty friend file that may have been deleted because it was empty.

 

It's possible it wasn't supposed to be deleted and something isn't recreating the file for friends to be stored in, but just guessing.

Also got this problem recently. I've heard NCsoft support has replied to others that they have absolutely no clue what causes it with no fix. Very unfortunate they're demonstrating this level of incompetency.

I had this issue for more than a year since the first server merge. It was one of the reasons I gave up and quit bns. I've tried it with three different computers and my friend list still appeared empty.

 

It is hard to support a company that can't fix what is a core issue to an MMO.

I also got this bug. I hope I could make friends playing on this server since I'm new coming back. It'd be nice to be able to get help and do dungeons with friends.

Hello, I would like to report a fault in the game which occured after your last update. I am not able to find my friends and cannot add friends to F4, they are basically not showing up. I am aware that you have reseted players F4 but after all, I am not able to see my friends which I have added. My friends can see me F4 but I can't see them. I am not the only one who has this problem. My partner is also having issues with this. Please fix this problem 
Thank you

An update on this -- mine started working when 2 people asked to be friends -- I approved, but nothing happened for

a while -- but that's because they weren't on -- cuz when they got on, they appeared.  And here's what else I noticed.

Was talking w/someone about this in chat, and they complained that they never knew when I was on because my

indicators in 'friends' always indicated I was offline.  So we thought I'd might try to friend him again -- and i got message that I was already friends w/him (even though he wasn't on my list since I lost the list).  I told him to try unfriending me and redo it, he did -- and then he could see me, but he still wasn't on my list. so had him try again, but let me invite him this time.

Was able to invite, but still couldn't see him -- but later he changed characters, and when he came in on his new

character, I got message he was on line -- and checked and he was now on my list.

 

So you might try getting someone who has you on their list to drop you, then try inviting them again, and then if it doesn't appear, have them bounce back to lobby and re-enter.  I don't know if my list will still have anyone on them when I go back in (as lost connection a while ago) and couldn't relog in -- wierd...

 

Anyway, just thought I'd update this w/my symptoms...the fact that game still thought I was friends w/somone who hd

been on my list seemed significant -- i.e still there, but just not on my list...
