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!

dat..its not the time for this indeed

40 points for the new guy doing the basic tutorial.

100 points for the new guy doing the adv. tutorial.

5 points per mission if the new guy plays solo.

15 points per mission if the new guy plays with the guy who invited him.

After he clicks the link in his email it should verify it from there. And the system takes a few minutes to update from your end.

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.

Still hoping for confirmation on this.

I accidentally clicked cancel referral just after I sent it to my friend. Now it says I already sent a referral to that email, but my friend has not recieved any email. Did I just waste one of my referrals?

This is quite possibly the weirdest timing you guys could have gone with for this.

 

Also, I already referred a few friends to APB and they weren't exactly in love with the experience, so I won't be getting any points for this little exercise. :/

Can anyone confirm if the full 600 points can be earned even if you never play with your friend?

 

Sadly, no.

 

I called a friend over tonight and told him about this thing, and he agreed to help me since he's been like a brother to me because we've known each other since elementary school (bless him for going through this torture for me, thank you Cliff!) 

We just got done getting to the 600 point limit after grinding APB missions for way too many hours in one sitting x_x

 

I don't think you'll be able to solo your way to the 600 point limit. We were doing missions together as a group, but eventually we stopped getting points. But then, when he started playing in missions without me in his group, we started getting points again. SO it seems like the referred person HAS to play with the referrer in order to get to the 600 point limit. It seems like each way for points is a role, and to get to the max point cap, each individual role must be maxxed out

 

the roles would be:

-basic tutorial

-advanced tutorial

-solo points

-grouped points

 

So each role would have to be fully completed to get to the max point cap. There's limits in both the solo point role and the grouped point role. The solo point role can't compensate for the grouped point role (and the grouped point role can't compensate for the solo point role). Each one has to be done to get the most points possible. I hope this clears things up for most people.

 

While we were playing, we didn't find any bugs or glitches, none that we noticed at least. Everything has worked fine up to this point. So far so good!

 

WELP. WE'RE TIRED AND EXHAUSTED FROM THIS. WE'LL PROBABLY BE TAKING A DAY OR TWO OFF FROM APB, CAUSE THAT WAS TOO MUCH APB FOR ONE NIGHT. We're going to sleep now!

 

Goodnight everyone, and I hope this helps and explains things well enough about what needs to be done

Off to sleep  :sleep:

Sadly, no.

 So basically I'll never be able to obtain the full 1800 points, since I have no friends and I can't trust random people on the internet.

Thanks to the 3 referral limit, I cannot participate in the RAF program.
Good job Reloaded, you've shot yourself in the foot yet again.

That isn't what this is. It's still only got 2 slots, it's basically just the JMB Cap40 without the Piercing mod.

Yeah no friends to refer here too, and i know alot of people.

APB is so broken right now, especially for new players. I completely understand why no one wants to give it a try.

Just use your current friends and "exploit" the system, cant even say i would judge for that since this game is really far down in the sink hole.

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. 

 

You literally cant stop it, not even based on IP tracking. People have siblings or college room mates that share a router or PC for playing. It is not a crime if I introduce the game to my younger brother/sister or room mate.

 

What is really sad though is that this is working for only new accounts. I have invited a few steam friends who I met in Rust and they were quite interested in the game for a while until it got to the part in progression where they understood that in F2P mode there is no future in this game.

 

There should be a possibility that they can now inform the player name who invited them and the progress will be linked to your account now when thr program is alive.

Seems a bit complicated in how it works, but still interesting. I am going to wait before referring anyone until the engine upgrade and matchmaking overhaul.

The biggest problem I see with the refer-a-friend program is that most of us veterans don't have any new friends to refer. Our friends are already playing APB, have already quit APB, or just aren't APB material. I have one friend specifically I could probably talk into coming back to APB, but it wouldn't be a new account unless he rerolled (which would be a possibility since he never played more than casually).

 

Suggestion
 

It would be nice if you extended the refer-a-friend program to not just new accounts, but accounts that have been inactive for more than 6 months (or even a year). This would give some of us more of an opportunity to get friends back into the game that used to play it without requiring them to create a new account and lose any progression and ARMAS purchases they may have made in the past.

Which basically makes it worse than the jmb cap40 because piercing is a straight downgrade if you can get a 2 slot cap40 ( reduced hard damage) and not really that many people relay on shooting through stuff. unless the jmb cap40 gets a 2nd modification slot its going to be a straight downgrade to the refer-a-multiaccount cap40 same goes with the huntress - the blue mod doesnt add that much value to it and the refer-a-multiaccount huntress seems to have ir3 inbuilt which makes no reason to really buy the jmb one unless they add a 2nd open slot to it

Well what if i refered a friend that still plays the game, we have played 100s of missions together ( playing since 2012 ) - i cant refer him because the system is gosh darned up but i will obviously make him do a new account so we can earn 600 points as i refered him to the game just before and later i will do the same for him bcuz gosh darn it.

Not sure I understand what you are asking / saying. Are you saying you just recently referred a friend who had played before, but had been inactive for a long time?

If this is the case, then you would need to find a different friend for the referral program if you want to be on the up-and-up about it. I personally, will not cheat the system anymore than maybe asking an old friend who used to play to come back and create a new account, but I'd prefer that RG included referring inactive accounts as part of the program so I don't have to ask my friend to start from scratch.

I am not going to ask active players to create new accounts just to cheat the system because that is missing the whole point of the program. By doing so you are not helping the game or growing the playerbase. Sure, I want the refer-a-friend rewards as much as everyone else, but I do not feel entitled to them and I am not going to just steal them.

You can put down G1/RG (why not? they do deserve it), but you are not helping the community or the game if you do not actually try to bring new or inactive friends back. So before you start scamming the system (just because you want the goods and it is so easy), consider actually using the program as it is intended and help grow the playerbase. I would suggest waiting to use your referrals though until the engine upgrade and new matchmaking are released.

I don't know what is the profit for the new player in it, besides the horrible traumatizing game experience he will get thanks to current community behavior, but Now that I have actually checked the refer a friend rewards page in Armas I really don't see much to sweeten the deal for me either

 

The only things I could use from there are the Future Tech skin, Bishada Spectre kit and 4x4 Vegas account wide. If I only refer one friend I would have to skip out all other rewards for the 4x4 Vegas.

 

I would have expected the Future Tech skin and Social Animal title would have been rewards for Tier 1 free level since it is not so much in my position to make the game play enjoyable for the new player - I cannot change how this community is and the community is like that because how RP is acting with us regarding all the answers, changes, updates and anti cheat.

For me, the best things about Piercing are being able to shoot people behind doors and pallet stacks, and being able to mow down people that get bottlenecked in hallways.

That's why I would love to have Piercing on a marksman or sniper rifle. :D
