Still don't know if we'll be screwed out of tier 10 tank (only available through the refer a friend program) if the recruit hasn't reached tier 10 by Feb 5th. Or like others have asked, will we simply no longer be able to recruit others after Feb 5th, but we can still chug away at the platooning with the recruit and eventually get the tier 10 reward tank?

 

Whats the plan WG?

Hate to break it to you, but the T95E2 isn't a Tier 10 tank.  It's a tier 8 tank.

Does anyone remember there being fine print stating an expiry date for the referral program?

 

If not, wouldn't it make sense for WG to just stop new players from signing up under the old program, while allowing the existing contracts to remain in perpetuity?

 

Why stir up a huge firestorm when you can simply grandfather people in? Or at least give them the option?

This is an example of why project management courses always talk about having a Communications Plan.  You need to keep all stakeholders (including customers) informed of what is going on, even if the news is "Still working out details".  If plans were still in too much flux to give any details, then it may have been better to say nothing at all.  That might mean that you have to delay implementation a couple extra months to give players a chance to finish off their old referrals once you decided on your plan of action.  Uncertainty and confusion is not a desirable state in any development program..

Agreed. Maybe WG figures most are more uneducated people that don't have higher level education to realize stuff like this.

 

Then again people with higher level education often have more discretionary income to blow on video games.

Just got my reward tank today !!!!  Thanks for the extension.

 

At the same time, it doesn't seem fair to cancel something without letting people know how it being cancelled.  The decision to cancel the program must have been discussed, so I assume the 'what to do with those not quite finished' talk happened as well. Is there any updated info we can get?

6 days to go, and Mr. KRZYBooP has not provided any information whatsoever.  I'm guessing we're going to get screwed.

So much time has passed and to this day I still can't find any information on weather or not those of us who referred someone back in the original 1.0 version will still get the T95E2. I hope that WarGaming actually makes a good decision for once and grandfathers the original referral commanders into the new system. By that I mean all of us who have recruits from the first iteration of the referral program will still be able to earn the T95E2 with those recruits. Coming from someone who already has all of the offered Tier 8 premiums in version 2.0, having the opportunity to earn a special tank be taken away from me after this much time of trying to get other people to Tier 10 is ridiculously infuriating. I should have just made a second account and invited that to the game.

Probably not.  There's a reason Krzyboop is avoiding this thread like the plague.  He knows that if he drops in and shares the information he has, we'll burn him alive.

My apologies. There hasn't been much news about this issue for me to share so I haven't returned. Please don't burn me. :o

Still no news on compensation for the old refer a friend program. I am still waiting on an official answer.

The new program looks better but the rewards are pretty stingy. The majority of those reward tanks are real dogs, woof!  Would it kill Minsk to throw in some bonds or a Female crewman?

I mean, having read the article and watched the videos theres bonds, and credits and emblems and styles and all sorts of stuff available as they progress. The recruit gets a free premium (when they didnt before) and the recruiter gets an ACTUAL premium instead of a reward tank that doesnt actually generate credits. This new program is way better for both parties involved.

I got the tank from one recruit. With other one we are platooning for few years now and only got 2 crew. I neded 20k xp to get another one but my friend broke his computer. It would be nice to get at least some crew members. Tank is garbage and needs all buffs it can get.

I referred a friend about two weeks ago under the 1.0 Referral setup. Will our referred friends get orphaned when 2.0 kicks in or will they be grandfathered into the 2.0 system?
