I'll be hoarding mine for the unlock sale too...lol, or decos, they are my main weakness...lol

Proud owner of 'Endwalker' , the first non SWTOR item I've ever pre ordered.
It's a sign of the times, my swtor sub has been used to sub a different game.

MMOs are supposed to add content, not remove content: *Galactic Map - 3D planet models, satellites, and home stars or mother planets shown, similar to Mass Effect's map, *Tython Captured Padawans - dead Padawan in cage missing that triggers mission *Advanced Class NPCs *etc., etc., etc.

I'm hoping they do bring it back, but without the cc's, or if they do have cc's, maybe a limit on how many you can have active. It was handy for a lot of people, and I know people who subbed (or came back) , just because they got that free week
My cookies are nearly out, and with everything else going on in the forums, and game, etc. it's time to walk away

Some people here must be related to mods, they get away with everything

is it not better to fix the problem about getting CC then remove it?

we know that the problem with the refer a friend program was that sub players can use the refer a freind link will that not is mean for.
more for pref and free to play players was it mean for to become sub 1 week and not that somebody that was all sub can use it to give the other guy free CC.

i think still fixing the problem is much better then what there have done now by remove it.

For the few days left of my subscription this time adding in my two cents.

I definitely will admit the RAF didn't get me to bring in new players, as if I knew anybody to give it to, they were already in the game, and likely already subbed as well. However, the referral did give me more reason to subscribe with some of the rewards that it brings after a subscription ended. Honestly, one of the main reasons I subbed in the first place was because the referral link permitted a week of sub time every 3 months, allowing me to go around the credit cap occasionally so escrow didn't go to waste. It didn't replace sub time, as my hope/intention was to sub for about 1 month twice a year, or only when interesting content was released, and use the referral just to get a little extra time with my credits or to hide head slots. If the referral hadn't existed the way it did, there's a good chance I'd never have bothered subscribing at all, as there'd have been a certainty I'd lose access to credits regularly.

It also does kind of put a damper on future subscribing from me, as I'd be put in a position where in order to actually do most things, I have to regularly subscribe, rather than occasionally. Which is something I am simply not capable, nor willing, to do, regardless of the referrals existence. Which means less entertainment, which means less chance of subbing again.

I'm not saying this will impact every person the same way it would me. But just that there's a near certainty that I (and thus possibly people like me) would never have subscribed at all without the referrals system.

Maybe they should at least have removed the various adds and places on website that still shows refer a friend and then takes you to an error page.

I know you're trying to insult the webmaster, but you also insulted every web designer in the developed world in the same post. (Yes, I know you used sarcasm.)



All of you whining about the Referral program, it's over! You can thank the exploiters for ruining it for everyone else.
