This is why it was STUPID for the upper-management to give an exclusive ship to the referral program, as there will be people who will refer non-existant friends to the game and then those accounts will promptly close down after a month or two.

Trust me, players are not stupid, if they want to they'll find a way to get what they want.
See a great game makes you want to buy more characters on your own. O had 4 SWG active accounts at one point. No gimmick made me buy them, no trick, no new marketing strategy. You know what did it, SWG before NGE CU was just great.

A great game SELLS itself. That is the one and ONLY lesson Cryptic needs to follow and drop all these shameless smoke and mirrors.
