#1 - 2013/11/13 10:28:00 PMOkay, I've struggled to like the "Recruit A Friend" system for years now, and found that it has more loopholes than the Federal tax code. I had a couple friends last year that I lobbied into playing MoP. They hadn't played in over two years. I personally took them on realm tours, showed the raids, the new UI, etc., and got both of them to sign back up.
What did I get? NOTHING.
Why? Because they used the "play for free" system first. The system that took no money, and did nothing to close the deal.
And what would Blizzard have lost as a result of compensating me? A digital bit on a hard drive saying I have access to a mount. Wow, big sacrifice...great there are so many loopholes to shelling out rewards.
Until the recruiting system is a simple policy of "Refer a friend with your account code, and get them to start paying $15 a month from either a new account or an account that's been dead for x-amount of months." I'm not helping.
