i think 64 slots is quite enough,cause what's the point of buddy list if you will add all the people as buddies xD :roflol:

I was quite angry when i had to delete 2/3 of my tmu buddies out of my list, after updating to tmuf ( guess that was in the betatests)
and I will be very soon in a new conflict, as a limit of 64 buddies is nothing :S
at this point im quite happy that I have tmu though, because 16 buddies out of 600 000 people is .. nothing

In the old tmn days i had around 500 buddies, and there were like 100 people online at every day-time, and ~40-50 were playing on a server, so it was quite comfortable to join a server with some buddies on it
nowadays, out of those 40 buddies i have collected yet, there are like 4 people online, and when im lucky, theres one person playing on a server
so this makes the buddy system quite useless for me :(
I also loved the menus of the good old tmn, because you could easily see on which server the buddies play on and check out, if some of your buddies even play on the same server
also it was very nice to see the server infos by one click , where you could see who and how many people were on the server and see the upcoming tracks.
I really enjoyed this, and i miss this all in tmuf
and guess what, playing online has reduced to 1/10 of the time in tmn for me and its for sure not getting better, because it is really annoying to check out all those servers, having nadeo-tracks from "10 sec- acrobatic" up to "1 min dirt-bug madness" with the same timelimit
and once youve found a server with good tracks, there are only a couple of players on it
when i have buddies, i mostly know what tracks they like so I can trust them and join by the buddysystem ;)

its a shame that theres a restriction for buddies in a game liek this, having the best community ive ever seen in a game
after all i really hope that nadeo will give us the "infinite buddies-list" back to have more fun playing online (and maybe give us the old tmn menus back :roflol: )

Just curious, if it was technically possible to have a large buddy list in TMN/TMU, what could have changed on Nadeo's side so that they suddenly limit it in Forever ? I can't imagine that they suddenly store so much more information about buddies, and storage prices go down all the time...
Maybe it's a marketing issue to make TMUF more attractive because of the higher limit, but then 64 seems too low for some.
I also had 20-30 in TMN and TMU, which I collected over the months/years. It was always nice to see someone online again after a while, will miss that. Can't even find my old buddies at all anymore, as the old TMN site and old TMU player page have been replaced :(

I don't mind the 16 cap on TMNF at all. It's a free game. They want people to buy the full TMUF game which gives you more features including a larger buddy list. Although I don't foresee myself having 64, I can understand raising the cap for those that support Nadeo by purchasing their game.

Then of course there is also this solution that we use quite a bit at The Older Gamers:

this is..impossible
honestly, my memory for -names- is so bad, there is absolutely no chance i could remember a server's name or location if i wasn't a regular user there.. and of course i can't become a regular user on most servers i'm new at, because i forget their names+location ... i totally rely on "external" memory when it comes to names :mrgreen:

So I buy a game at the highest price it was sold for, and I can only have 64 friends. That sucks :grmblz:

edit:
how about this:
tmnf-64 friends
tmuf-200 friends

Florent?
