I am sure I'm not the only person here that have this problem and it is highly irritating from time to time.
When I open friends list to check what they are doing, to see if i can invite people, spectate, most of the time there's a massive delay (~5 min) where it wouldn't show accurate detail of them.
For ex. I open the tab
See my friend In Game, but he's not actually in game
See my friend Online, but he's actually qued, in game, or offline.
See my friend Offline, but he's actually online.
To many people, this might just be a normal thing, but for me it can get quite frustrating.
I'm sure it doesn't take that much of an effort to update the system that manage this, to refresh the detail of my friends at much faster rate.
