To unfriend someone go to your Friends list page, hover over your friend’s screen name or avatar and click the ‘Unfriend’ button.

If I unfriend someone, will they be notified?

No. All friends’ links are reciprocal, which means that players need to bilaterally agree on being friends before the relationship is established. So, you will be removed as a friend from their friend list as well.

How do I block someone?

Block is a one-way action that prevents another player from any kind of communication. You can block a player that is not your friend and you can block a player that you are friends with too.

If I block someone, will they be notified?

When you block someone, we won’t proactively notify them. But since blocking someone limits the interactions that player can have with you, they may figure out that they’ve been blocked.

Where can I see the players that I have blocked?

For a list of the players that you have blocked, there is a blocked panel on the Friends list page that contains the names of those you have blocked.

How do I unblock someone?

To unblock a player, please return to the Friends list page with the blocked panel in view, you will have an option to click on a player to unblock them.
