Rel-04-Refer-a-Friend-Facebook-Banner-(b

 

 

Today we're pleased to announce a way for you to get free exclusive items, just by introducing your friends to APB! Send invites to your friends using the new Refer-a-Friend (Beta) page and help them climb the ranks in San Paro to earn skins, weapons, clothing, vehicles and kits!

 

You can find the Refer-a-Friend page at the top of Armas:

Just follow these three easy steps to get started:

 

  1. Send your friend an invitation and guide them along to create their first character. Once they created their character you will start to earn points based on their game activity.
  2. Help your friend achieve the goals in the progress tracker to earn points. You will earn 3X more points by playing missions with him/her!
  3. Save or spend your points to redeem rewards from the collection. Higher tier rewards are more valuable, so choose wisely!

Guidelines

  • You may refer up to three (3) friends for the lifetime of your account
  • You can earn a maximum of 600 points per referred friend (1800 total)
  • You can refer only one (1) friend at a time. The invitation form will only be available if you are not currently referring a friend
  • If a friend has not created a character after three (3) days of accepting your invitation, you will be given the option to remove them as a referral. This will not count toward your lifetime referrals
  • If a friend has been inactive for seven (7) days after creating a character, you will be given the option to remove them as a referral. Warning: removing a previously-active referral will count toward your total lifetime referrals, and you will miss out on earning the maximum points from this referral! We recommend that you instead simply encourage your friend to complete their game goals.

 

This is an open beta test period so your feedback is very important to us. We will be making tweaks and improvements to the system in the following weeks based on that feedback.

New accounts.

This makes me sad. I just had a friend sign up a month back, and they have spent some money on ARMAS. Can't go asking them to remake an account.

Laugh and take pride that they require coded counter measures to handle all your awesomeness, because their sad, little ego just pales next to the greatness that is you, a true gamer.

On the 'leak' before RAF was out, the display banner was free. Is it still like that?

I really wish you could roll out this system right after overhauling matchmaking, i've invited few friends of me to APB but sadly they didn't stick around due to the frustrating experience they encounter by the matchmaking.

Anyways, That looks promising!

Is there anything in place to prevent people from exploiting this? Say, for example, current players just making new accounts to help each other gain points?

Yes, you must refer a friend before you can obtain that though.

If people have to stay for a while just for me to get 600 points, what's in it for them to stay?

Engine hasn't been upgraded yet;
Matchmaking hasn't been overhauled;
Server performance is really hit-or-miss;
Client performance on average is still crap;
There hasn't been any F2P additions to the game outside of events and the abortion that is Joker Distribution.

The only things new players can look forward to are things that are broken: weapons, matchmaking and servers.

This was horribly timed, and not well thought out.

People do that in EVERY game with a refer-a-friend system. You CAN'T stop it unless G1 is willing to ban half their playerbase.

"Time for my friends and I to make alt accounts for each other, because all our other friends already tried and hated APB!"

 

I imagine that'll be the most common way to get the rewards.

Really, this should've been delayed until the threat overhaul, and maybe another tutorial overhaul, seeing as this game is still hell for new players. Not to mention, I'm gold, which forces any new friends to instantly become at least silver, which they shouldn't be. And if they're bronze, I can't even help them out with people their skill level, instead, they have to fight people my skill level, so they get stomped and hate the game.

 

GG.


Mad? No... I'm the only sane one left!

I play Dota and Dark Souls these days... APB is a "Watch to see if it turns into anything decent" game now.

true , but what I did mean is do not have all friends on those programs emails asking for them is one way to go about it , but asking for email is a bit strange to somebut to be honest I never check my email unless I know something is being sent, or to activate new accounts for things

also suggestion for later : be able to refer more people and aquire G1C or Gold not large amount

I see a new version of the VBR in there... sounds and looks like you had this on the cards before you re did the guns so when this one was show cased / shown off it wouldn't be so crap... 

 

O well I can convince any of my friends to reroll unless they are getting the stuff aswell... so till we get clear information I am still going to steer clear of apb atm..

nvm found it on armas

 

Perma stuff is always worth it. Jobs, will it ever be possible to get a mod or something that makes spawning vehicles for free? Its the reason Ive not bothered to buy kits from armas, the only vehicle i drive is the han veo even though I have other vehicles.

I dont get it, where is the list of rewards and point required to get them?

On armas.

 

This is really another thing that should have been here from the start, but I guess it's still a success that we have it at all.

 

Not too crazy about the system that makes you force your friends to stay until you get the 600 points from them. It's a little harsh to punish someone because they didn't manage to convert the friend they invited.

I'm not referring any friends to APB just yet, waiting for the game to be fixed first, or well maybe less flawed.

It's under major changes, which I'm still excited for, however in its current state, not very appealing.

They should have waited until the engine update too.  Plus I find a lot of the descriptions very incomplete, and the fact that kits cars and clothing items are awarded account-wide incredibly frustrating when there is no Armas options for most of it.

Can anyone confirm if the full 600 points can be earned even if you never play with your friend? Unlikely to ever come up, but is important information nonetheless.

Also, why is the RAF weapon skin not free like the banner? The actual gosh darn Jobs.

Be interesting to see how they handle exploiters, cuz we all know there are probably already people referring and creating new accounts.

 

What happens when a referral ends up being a cheater?
