Maybe they should do a sticky for such things or a request forum.

In regards to players spamming buddy key invites, we will most likely clean those up and add a forum policy if it gets out of hand. Currently there is a possibility that it will go away on it's own, so I'll hope for that for now. If we still see "offering EC for referrals!" after the weekend then we'll most likely need to get a bit stricter about it.

You might consider a "referral" board for people who are looking for recruits as well as the interested people looking for a key.

Could always do what some FFXI forums do: Create a sticky or subforum specifically for sharing buddy keys.

what about offering cash value rewards in return for people subscribing? Condoning that can make you party to pyramid marketing which will get you a slap in the EU.

Get stricter about it?

This monster was created by Cryptic's Marketing Department!

They come up with a ridiculously sought after in-game ship, with special features that no other Federation ship can have.

They make the ONLY way to get this ship, through a referral processes.

The only way for players to get 5 new players to...purchase the game, then resub for a month after the first 30 days....is to offer them something.

For those of us who can't afford to buy 5 boxes, and then pay for 5 x 2nd month sunscriptions, is to offer in-game items (ECs) in exhange.

Now there is the threat that "stricter actions" will take place if we try to function in this system that Cryptic has created!!!

This is beginning to sound an aweful lot like SOE's screwing around with SWG.......Cryptic Devs, divorce your marketing department before the destroy this game!!!! If you agree with them on this scheme, bang your head against the wall a few times, until your senses return to you.

Do not try to over market STO, keep doing the development you have been doing. Your steps towards Season Two have been great so far.......If you develop it, players will come......schemes never result in satisfied, long term, customers.

My idea is better than your marketing depratment's....Make the Galaxy X:

1. Tier 6 ship class
2. Give other classes of ships the same abilities (Science, Cruiser, Escort)
3. Make it unlocked at RA 10
4. Make it cost 1000 Marks of Exploration

1000 Marks of Exploration will take a player 200 days to earn = 7 months of subscription time!!

5. You can still keep your referral reward in place, for those that can get 5 people and whom want it now.

My way, everyone wins!!

That would be the best idea for people trying to get a Gal X.

There are around 10 active ones concerning this. Not an exaggeration.
