    Default referral

    That's a fabulous idea, now all you have to do is convert the t-shirt slogans into actual tshirt winners and DDO will be in the black :P

    Fantastic move, thanks Turbine!


    Hopefully this will help us bring more new blood to the game...and if nothing else, it should help you sell a few more mule/2nd accounts to existing players

    Question Quarion.

    What about buying subscriptions for friends. Like a give the gift of DDO for a friend?

    I have a friend that is in the military and coming back in January. He was worried about paying for another 6 months of subcriptions. As a gift I wanted to [ay for his sub. Is there a way to do that?

    I have done that for friends, too. Is there anyway of reconciling those new subs with the referral program?

    Good Question!
    Here's your answer:

    The referral program only works if the referred player is not already subscribed, so if I understand your situation right, it wouldn't work for you, unfortunately. It sounds like your friend is already a customer.

    However, you can refer new friends with the referal program and as long as they have upgraded to a full version from trial sometime after your referral, and start a paid subscription you'll get credit.

    Now here's the tricky part... you want to pay for your friend's subscription (and probably the upgrade too.) Here's how we suggest it be done:

    1. Refer your friend, and see if they like the game.
    2. If they choose to keep playing, you can visit our store at http://store.turbine.com and purchase a digital download key for theme to upgrade with.
    3. There are two ways you can pay for another player's subscription. A: Visit our partner site at www.paybycash.com/ddo and purchase a game time code for them to use during their upgrade process. This will allow them to upgrade and grant you referral credit.

    or B: Have your friend use his or her credit card during the upgrade process (they will not be charged for the first 30 days.) and then immediately call our Account Support department at 781-407-4020 and ask to make a "One Time Payment" on a friends account. You will need your friend's account username, and your own credit card. This will not apply your payment information to the friends account, but process a one time payment.

    Remember, never share your password or credit card information with another player, and never offer to put your credit card on another players account via the website! Doing so can result in non-refundable charges and the account becoming banned. The above two methods are the only way to properly receive a referral credit when paying for a friends account.

    Hope this helps!

    Can i have my referral credits in the form of tasty ham?

    Yummy...Ham....

    I figure the exchange rate of DDO days to Tasty Ham to be about 3.45 Tasty Hams per days of DDO credit. Maybe 3.24 bepending on the strength of the Japanese yen, im not totaly sure.

    Clearly our graph indacates a dramatic raise in player happyness based on a steady diet of ham.


    A good deal of Tasty Ham
    A so so amout of ham
    Small amouts of ham
    No ham at all!

    History has proven time and time again the great need for Tasty Ham.
    For example the time ranging from 476 to 1000 AD. Fell dark when scholars belived the amouts of Tasty Ham where not suitable to sustain the growing world.
    We also know that during the time of From 1347 to 1351 AD, Asian, Africa and Europe were all devastaded by mass Ham shortages.
    Look it up!

    I hope you consider my humble request and i look forward to a favorable responce from the dev team. Thank you.

    This is a nice program Q. But... you couldn't have gotten it out to us a week earlier? I just got my brother to sign up last week over Thanksgiving. Oh well.
