How could anyone in good conscience refer this game to anyone any more!  Your trying to fix this with the personal greed of the recruiter. Its true we need new players to continue the game but WG is killing this game.

No thanks, wouldn't recommend the game to anyone in this current state even if it was the only game they could play.

@Hapa_Fodder, For returning players the requirement is:

"Returning players — win 25 battles playing Tier IV–X ships."

 

Does this have to be in randoms or could it be done in co-op?

Guess stopping giving you money for your game (used to whale a bit in the past) is not a decision I was alone in making...

Listen to your player base, fix broken things before trying to add more and people will refer the game to others (as I used to) without financial incentives....

why does WG keep pushing this in our face ... theres more players leaving than joining  and i wouldnt waste me time trying this

isnt  promoting the product   the job  of the company  and not its buyers 

we dont get paid  to do your job in promoting . ive read so many posts in the past year that rewards have been missing , late or not appeard at all

stop pushing this crap in our face  

NOT AIMED @Hapa  btw but at the orginisers

I don't want to lose my friendship for 25$.

And I don't want to create a new account and invite myself to grind start from 0, for 25$.

Maybe you tried to recruit someone in one of the previous events? Might be why you are trying to find someone you are on speaking terms with :Smile_trollface:.

As for the contest itself, it's nothing out of the ordinary, albeit with the current rework and the weird way low tiers have turned out to be It's kinda difficult to convince people. Besides, don't like the monetary reward as it feels a bit schemy; a choice between ingame goods or a 20$ coupon  would be a bit better in my humble opinion.

In practical terms, this isn't much different from a regular advertising deal; it might even be more cost effective than simple banner ads that are probably going to get blocked or YouTube spots people tune out.

But wait, there's more.

Typically one of the largest barriers to converting F2P to a someone WG is actively milking is is getting F2Ps to link payment and make the first purchase... which is why WG is working so hard to break those barriers down.

There's a reason why WG took the effort of programming the armory shop interface to sell coal and steel ships instead of tweaking the existing tech tree way to sell ships - and why it's exactly the same as the in game premium shop interface. They want you to get used to the process of using the shop.

And now, with this, WG is trying to get you to link a payment method, so that when the impulse to buy something does hit you, there's one fewer (major) barrier between your wallet and WG.

I'm willing to bet that this is as much a reason WG is running this campaign as simple advertising is, if not more so. WG's actions have already made it pretty damn obvious their focus now is more on milking the playerbase they have than trying to build it up further.

I'd like to see rare ships as a recruiting reward. I'll get you 50 new recruits for a Missouri and I can do it in a week. I don't really care about money as I have plenty in real life but there are certain ships money can't buy :)

Yup sounds like some desperation from WG.  Get rid of 2 CVs at lower tiers, (but removal would be better) Fix radar so it doesn't go through rocks, and is only for the ship using it, Remove CVs and subs to their own game modes (fixes so many problems, and convinces me to buy a premium sub to attack convoys)  Listen to the community on Captain skills and while your at it FIX the meta of the game so broadside armor is the strong armor, and bow tanking, stern backing all go away and the game become WAY more dynamic.  Then WG maybe we can talk about recruiting my enemies to this game... oh I mean friends.

@Hapa_Fodder In the Recruiting Station page it says that players who have played fewer than 15 battles are counted as new players, but in the event it says that only players who have NEVER played World of Warships are counted as new players. Is this a mistake?

Because this is a specific drive, the rules of the drive apply to the event.

Is it generally considered a good sign for the overall health of a free-to-play game when, following a string of questionable (or at least controversial) decisions by the leadership and development team, they start literally paying people to play it? Asking for a friend...
