Include Friend list menu for inviting players to new games

Postby Doc_Brown on Mon Feb 17, 2014 12:45 am

Concise description:
On the "Start a Game" page, add the "Select a friend" drop down list next to each of the player boxes in the "Invite Players" section.

Specifics/Details:
Currently, if a game already exists and you click on the link to invite players, you're taken to a page that allows you to select one of your friends from a drop-down list. I would like to see that box added to the start a game page next to each of the player name boxes.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
This makes creating games with automatic invites for friends much easier. It also improves creation of clan war and tournament games since the game creator can just add all relevant players to his friend list and quickly select them during game creation.

This is a very simple thing that I am surprised that no one has thought of it before.

Yes please to this one.

You could leave it as a text field but use the friend list for autocomplete. I think that is actually faster than a drop down.

See the below link for an example. You can type your friend's name and it will match it from the list. Or, to view the full list you can click on the down arrow or press the down arrow on your keyboard (after focusing on the text field).

e.g.
