apparently yes. I would go for the new TD! Since i don't have any premium TD, it'll be really nice.  :great:

Thank you WG. :)

Why don't you give the recruiter and the tanks of the recruit to choose one? They would have more tanks to pic for their "effort" an you accually would not give more tanks to the program.

100 points per day? So to avoid any "unexplained bull$hit" ? What a lame excuse!

Hey what will happen with a referral program in progress? I am in the middle of the second stage now with my recruit, will we be able tp finish it once the new season kicks in or we will have to start over from zero?

You’ll be Ok, don’t worry. The progress won’t change and you’re able to finish it. 
Additionally, you’ll have two more new slots for recruits.

As for Recruits, the conditions for them haven't changed. They can be recruited by a Commander if either of the following conditions are met:

  • They are a newcomer to World of Tanks or have played 200 or fewer battles
  • They haven't played within the last 60 days 

 

So, if you've been recruited before but haven't finished the program, you can be recruited again.

We don't like for people to abuse the system, or rush to the rewards. It worsens the qol for the rest of the players and/or misses the point of the program.

Yes, about 100 points... it’s a huge inconvenience... I like to get free t8 premium tank, 

few times I found recruits, but also once I did it myself with a second account ( it’s not against the game’s rules btw). 
I grinded fast Luchs and BT-5 that time, put optics,  food and play for medals... (Exclude Himmelsdorf and Abbey maps).

I earned 100 points in average for 7 battles (Scout, patrol duty, confederate and pascucci/ orlik medals) , one of it it’s like almost every battle, two of them every 3-4-th battle...Especially, now with OP scout equipment which cost a little credits for low tier.

I would recommend (who cares though, but if thinks from player side) - do it top-10 instead 12 ( so players will not go yolo), but make it 250 points a day (like one stage) if you still need this limitation after top-10 politics:honoring: 

 

14:14 Added after 6 minute
Anyhow good news, I should make a new topic about Kjp 105 to ask people about:P
Also, I remember, with referral season 3 same time started marathon for Renegade:popcorn: and it’s also time for that, you know, coincidence?

I've edited the post a bit to make it a bit more pleasant on the eyes. Please don't mess with making the text size larger and whatnot, just making it bold is enough to emphasise your point.

In this way you will kill the commander interest, This process has really over extended the program. I had an early experience with a recruit where you have to beg him to join the game, then wait for his highness to give you the ETA, after login it was upto his mood whether to play one battle or 20 battles. And now with this 100 points limitation, it seems there will be less recruits.

WTF mate....you are such a [Edited]... I can invite again and again and get TIER 8 premium TANKS!!! ALL OF THEM ( 2 each season) . 

I dont know how you can call this abuse...

Inviting other players is abuse....not BEING INVITED!!!

The recruit is importand! 

Abusing is when you invite players for TIER 8 premium tanks.....

You are such a [Edited]...typical WG customer!

"We’re introducing a daily limit on Referral Points earned. Starting from Season 5, you can earn no more than 100 points per day"

 

This is a good detterent for people who run bot's to farm referal points, as commanders are only allowed a limited number of recruits at a time. 

 

However I don't think it goes far enough, any commander that has been involved in the recruitment program should have the referal accounts linked to that account checked, and if script like patterns and activity are noted eg battle numbers in their hundreds in 24 hours, then sanctions be applied to the commanders account.

 

It help to address the problem but doesn't solve it, and plenty of damage to the economy and legitimate players  has already taken place.
