First - I love that this is starting up for the sake of building the community

Second - I love that some missions require platooning, which will help prevent botting

 

Several thoughts:

 

A)  Consider making a series of recruiter badges - ones that not only look kewl next to one's name, but also give an idea of how many people have been recruited.  They don't have to display them, but if they do, maybe it makes them more approachable to ask for help?

B)  Consider giving the recruiter the option of several low tier rental tanks for a long term.  I know there was a point where I didn't have a collection of tanks, nor the slots, nor the funds to go back and buy a few lower tiers to play with others.  Later this wasn't an issue. But, who's the target audience for the recruiter?

C)  Consider the rewards a little further.  A few bonds?  The recruiter might be interested in bonds, and nice camo options or "stickers".  But, the recruited? Maybe camo or stickers to match their friends?  But, bonds?  Did you survey any newer players that have stuck with it as to what they might have wanted?

D)  And most importantly - advertise this - a lot.

E) oh, and one other item - allow newer players one free name change!

Howdy Boom Jockies! 

 

As some of you are aware from my last Post about closing Refer a Friend 1.0 from November. This was postponed to help with some players to finish their grind to get to tier X before the closing. I understand that not everyone was able to complete this and still have questions about compensation. Sadly, I don't have any updates on compensation for players that weren't able to complete it within 3 months. With that being said be sure to check out the new Refer a Friend 2.0 that was announced officially today. I personally think it's more dynamic then the last one and allows for greater rewards. What do you think of the Changes? 

 

 

 

 

 

Any questions or feedback on this is more than welcome. 

 

HEREis the link to the updated Article for refer a friend. 

 

While this isnt technically related to the new program... can we see about giving the T95E2 premium credit making? That'd be great...

Keep in mind, that if you become a commander first, you can't be a recruit in the future.

So what I'm getting out of all of this for the existing people with recruits is that the update is there is no update.

 

Do they at least have a timeline on when they will have this information that they probably should have had already???

 

Yes at this time I am still waiting on information to share. There is no ETA, but it's something I am still looking into on behalf of the community.

There is no progress showing on the progress bar in the game client. I have played 2 games and met the criteria to have earned 16/500 and it shows nothing. I sent in a ticket to support, with screenshots attached and am waiting for a response from WG Support.

You know what would be nice?  A way to "buy" our way to the T95E2, with a discount based upon how high our recruit got before the changeover.  Mine got to tier 8 and burned out.  So it'd be nice to get a "oh hey, your recruit made it to tier 8, here's a 80% off discount towards the purchase of the T95E2".

 

But I get the feeling that won't happen, as I log in and see that my Tier 8 recruit is no longer considered a recruit of mine.  So I guess all that badgering of him to play was for nothing.

 

So I was right.  The people who didn't get to tier 10 are screwed.

Does the new referral program bonuses after each battle include front line battles as well?

This is what's happening on my end as well.

I've read the conditions of the refer a friend. Don't have friends, It's too confusing, awards are definitely too hard to get for someone who only plays occasionally. I'm just going to take a break like I did last year for six months. It's just not worth the time. Thank you.

Will the T95E2 still be available through the recruitment program for reaching the final threshold(s) of playing with friends? Sort of as an exclusive to the program?

You should be able to complete the missions in Frontline.

The T95E2 is not a premium tank and is not a reward for completing the RAF 2.0.

The specific problem with my recruit has been resolved (1.4 dropped, he had less than 200 battles and the invite mechanism worked). But my question is still valid and would like to know if WG can handle those cases.

SOLVED
Hi StoutCrux,

Thank you for updating us Commander!

We have check with our team and we were informed that the Recruiter and Recruits for the Referral Program 1.0 will not be automatically paired.

We understand the frustration this may cause on your part. At this time, we are working with the developers to determine what if any compensation will be made available to you and your recruit.

We hope to have news for you soon. Any announcements regarding Referral Program 2.0 or compensation will be posted here.

Thank you for your understanding.

That's nice.  4 years down the freaking drain.  It's my own fault for thinking that Wargaming would make a game that would appeal to everyone, and not just die-hards.

Disappointing to say the least. Not a great precedent for when refer a friend 3.0 comes out.
