Referral Program, Where Hast Thou Gone?
 
Captain's log, Stardate -310848.45988919254.

Encounter with cosmic anomaly resulted in destruction of shuttle craft stranding me on a world that is curiously similar to the known history of the planet Earth. Specifically, the early 21st century. I find myself thanking my academy instructors for their insistence on the important of historical knowledge. Never has the phrase "the past is the guide to your future" been so appropriate.

I have discovered that this society has a primitive holodeck-like simulation of Starfleet; however it requires a resource for access which would not seem so strange to me were I Ferengi. The exchange medium of this period, "money", is used to access this Starfleet simulation. It is my hope that by participating in this simulation mistakes made will be dismissed as "role playing", a type of play-acting popular in this era. My participation as such will not risk violation of either the Prime, or Temporal Prime, Directives.

However, in my efforts to adapt myself to this curious situation I have discovered an inconsistency within the expected parameters of this simulation. Therefore...


:confused: Does anyone know what is going on with the referral system? :confused:

Any assistance would be appreciated as I have, by fortuitous circumstance, come to be acquainted positively with several natives. They, interested if not engrossed within this cultural matrix, would make powerful allies within my now simulated career as a Starfleet officer and I would like to provide for myself via the "referral program" through my effort to allow these individuals to experience some of the wonders of a career in Starfleet.

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

BranFlakes stated they took it down until Cryptic can decide how they want to handle it now that the game has gone FTP. For example, things like the buying the game bonus no longer apply.

...and the fact that the photonic officer and photonic tribble are now available all over the exchange.

unfortunately, the Referral program is pretty much redundant under F2P.

Apparently, I have access to the Courtier title even though I only recruited one player. I was really hopping I could get five so that I could have the Dreadnaught Cruiser for free. Do I simply have no choice but to buy it now?

As of now you can only buy it. Even if Cryptic implements a new Referral program there's no guarantee the Dreadnought will be part of it again. They might stick something else in as the Reward.

Riot Games disagrees with that statement.

... but still
 
Personally, I don't care if it is free or not but I still want to be able to send invites to people I know who don't play yet. Actually, I'm even more inclined to send an invite now because it is F2P. What I liked most was the fact that we were instantly friended and that we could transwarp to each other.
