Why has EA made it difficult to delete friends? ....

Prev1
To elaborate, I can no longer access the Origin menu to manage friends, ones who no longer play.

    Thanks. I've already got it, but it's a little inconvenient. I suppose I'll have to do it that way and try to remember the names of my inactive "friends" as I close one app and go to the other.

    Maybe there was some problem with it? Who knows for sure. But it is definitely very annoying. I hope they fix this on both platforms soon.

    Deleting them is the easy part for me. How do I accept invites? :?

    Oh wait... my mistake. Your right. Accepting invites is there. I don't know how to delete friends either. :XD:

    Luckily I deleted everyone who needed to be deleted before the update happened, so... keep lettin EA know about it.

    I can't invite friends. It just says a failure has occurred. However if I go into scrabble I can invite them there. A real pain.

    So we need to install Scrabble to be able to delete friends. :? I don't know why EA didn't keep it the way it was, it was easier for everyone.

    What's funniest to me is that all of a sudden, Scrabble is going to be the most downloaded game EA ever put out there.

    Just noticed something!! I actually started to play that scrabble game, and there are ads! It pops up every little while ... For me, it's that Progressive Insurance commercial series.

    Coincidence? Methinks perhaps not.

    What are you all talking about? Just tap on the milhouse/bart icon and it comes up with pending friends you want to delete, as for deleting actual friends, as far as I know it has and always had to be done on the origins account via a pc.

    For android players, the PC was always the only route to see that list of friends. But on iOS devices, you could see it using the Milhouse/Bart icon. It was very convenient. No need to switch to PC, etc.

    With this update, the TSTO game for iOS lost that capability. But we found the Scrabble game offers it.

    Have a look at it. It's really nice. :)

    I just use origins app thats for the mac/pc and its not a problem at all.

    I can understand how someone without a desktop/laptop must feel though.
    My friend only owns a iPad and she has to use my laptop anytime she wants to remove someone.

    That worked, awesome!
    I have been wanting to delete non-players for months.

    A friend I work with both play the game and have the same friend in the game and whenever either one of us goes to that town we get kicked out of the game and have to reload.

    Why is this not available on tsto, why should I have to download a different game?
