❕New GameCenter Friend Mgmt in iOS 11.3+❕

Postby Livinez » Sat Apr 14, 2018 12:45 am

In iOS 11.3, Apple finally introduces a way to delete individual Game Center friends–something we’ve waited for since Game Center became a service instead of an app!

Previously, you could only "Remove All Game Center Friends" from the "Game Center" preferences in the Settings app. Now, you can see the # of friends you have as well the ability to tap on "Friends" from the same menu and delete them individually instead.

How do you know if they still play PB or not other than by checking friend's bar?

Hey Umm,
There’s been no activity on their island, they don’t ever show up in the market, they haven’t leveled up in forever, they never have dives etc...there was no real harm in having them on my friend bar, but it would take me forever to scroll through them to find some of my newer lower level friends. So it’s nice to finally clean that up.

For my active GC friends, I’ve been keeping an eye out on Facebook for them and have an able to connect with a few.

Happy to have helped! ;)

I meant to post this a week or so ago but with b2b TF...it kinda got put on the back burner. :lol:
Just thought it would be nice for folks who had inquired as to how they could unfriend some peeps.
Sidenote:
It says I have Gamecenter 134 friends but I know they all don’t show up in my games Friends List.
If you recall...there was a time long long ago when ALL your GC friends appeared in the game. Then, some time later we saw our “in game” list of GC friends cut nearly in half! :o
I just logged out of Facebook for a bit and counted the friends on my Friends Bar. Subtracting bookmarked islands only 65 of the 134 appeared on my game’s Friends Bar.
For continuity, I just removed anyone who wasn’t showing up in my game anyway. So now the GC settings says I have 65 friends; which matches my Friend Bar. ;)

Maybe some of those Game Center friends came from other games and don't play PB.

I was glad to see they let people clean up their lists, but was hoping they had also added back a way to add friends.

PB is the only game I play through GC and all my GC friends were added strictly for PB. ;) :P

Thank you so much for posting this, Liv. Unfortunately when I go to my Game Center on my iPad, it just says "Friends" with no number before it. When I tap on "Friends", it doesn't show a list as you've shown above, it just gives me a search bar to look up friends. I've tried looking up friends I know are on my GC list but it just gives me "No results found."

Wah, wah, wah... oh well - it was worth a try! Thanks again.

And just to throw it out there... has anyone heard any rumblings about when we might FINALLY get some new levels and the new crop and mill? It's been listed in the PB Wiki for a couple of months now. We have been waiting much too long and at least 80% of my friends are at Level 75.
