Damn, that almost makes me want to sign up 5 new dummy accounts, except I couldn't justify spending $120 or so dollars to do it.thankfully I have a couple of friends that may be interested, well interested enough for the first month anyway.
Nothing but a poor copy of the CoX (City of Heroes, City of Villains) rewards, for paid time.
None of these things matter, other than maybe a respec. That's it. RA/BG5 don't give a crap about XP/SP, unless you're allowing them to go over the cap.
Very interesting read indeed, please let us now when the new "Refer a Friend" system becomes fully functional ASAP and also, Rekhan please can you tell us whether the Lifetime Subscribers will get the Veteran Rewards instantly or will we get them after the specified number of days of play.
When did you start recording how many days we have played?
Does it work by recording total accumulative hours per day?
Well, I have to say this is the first of these "special offers" that has come around that I have a real issue with. First, I do not "recruit" people ... ever. I'll mention I play the game and give them my thoughts. But I will not ever "recruit" them regardless of the rewards. Second, having such an iconic and requested ship as a recruiter reward just puts a bad taste in my mouth. It could be a really expensive C-store item and I wouldn't complain. It could be a special boxed set reward and I wouldn't complain. However, as a recruiter reward I will complain. I think it's wrong and don't appreciate the attempted bribe to get players to push the game onto their friends. If you aren't confident enough in your game, why should I ask five friends to play it?
Bad form. Bad PR decision.
Umm, you DO realize that these days EVERY MMO (even Blizzard's World of ********) has a 'recruit a friend' program that gives rewards to the 'recruiters'. Yep - guess Blizzard must really have NO CONFIDENCE in World of ******** any longer either.
