When a faction is friendly to your faction and your faction does not reciprocate, the names of members of that faction should appear in blue, just as if your faction had non-reciprocated friendliness to it.

In other words, instead of how it currently works, name coloring should work like this:



Reasoning: In Nexus War, factions could set a potentially unlimited number of other factions as friendly. If you were genuinely allies with a faction, there was no cost to reciprocate friendliness and so one-way friendliness didn't mean much. But in Nexus Clash, you can have only five friendly factions and so choosing those five necessarily excludes others that you would like to have as allies. It means so much more for a faction to have spent a share of its very limited portion of friendliness on you. The interface should reflect that.

This would make seeing a blue name nearly meaningless, since they might be a faction you don't know who set your faction to friendly just to avoid being killed.

Isn't it rather meaningless right now anyway? A list of people you might want to avoid killing but who will not hesitate to do the same to you.

Actually, this would nicely fix that issue, since you could now see who has set you Friendly, and thus avoid killing them. Ideally "You are Friendly To" would be a different shade of blue than "They are Friendly to You" but even using the same shade would be an improvement.

As the OP, I'm dumping this suggestion since one of the base assumptions behind it (finite amounts of faction friendliness) no longer applies.
