What is the Star Citizen referral program

The Star Citizen referral program is a reward system to motivate citizens like me to tell others about the game. The more recruits that use your star citizen code the better the rewards get. Basically the program is an affiliate program, when someone registers with your Star citizen referral code they will automatically get 5,000 UEC. As a result you will get a Recruitment Point with every new backer and you unlock rewards.

How to get your own referrals?

get recruits and rewardsOnce you have enlisted and created your account you enter the referral reward program. From that moment you will have your own code. As a Star Citizen you’ll be able to share your referral code among friends. Add your code to the Reddit randomizer. There’ s a small chance that someone will use your code. The downside of the randomizer is that many people have added theirs already. Consequently this leads to a decreased chance of getting recruits.
In my opinion the best way to get more recruits is by creating content. Make some cool video’s for example and add your code, you might get something out of it.

Copy the link below and add your own code at the end of the string , now you can share the link with anyone!

Share yours right here!

Every month I will select a few comments and I’ll add your referral code to this page. This should get you some recruits. I only approve quality comments so put a little effort into it.
Think of the following (or just share a cool star citizen story!).

  1. Tell me what you plan to do in Star Citizen, what will be your role how are you going to make a living?
  2. What are you looking forward to, what is the reason you backed Star Citizen?
  3. Where did you hear about this game and when did you become a backer?
  4. Leave your code

How to use the referral code?

Go to the enlist page at the RSI website and register a new account. Enter the code and you are good to go. Keep in mind that to get the free UEC you’ll have to use a new account for it to work.

Reward program controversy

When CIG announced the referral program many backers were spamming their codes everywhere. It was a complete mess and flooded the star citizen subreddit. As a result the mods banned the posting of referrals in the Subreddit. Even to this day you see people trying to sneak their codes in conversations. Fortunately the community takes care of it within minutes.
The rewards are pretty sweet though, who doesn’t want that Gladius Gold reward? The more hardcore fans even buy them on the grey market but few people provide them.

Earn 5000 UEC

Just register as a new Star Citizen with the referral code and the 5000 UEC are yours. Fill in the form at the RSI website and you will get your reward.
If you decide to back the game don’t just buy a ship, think about what you want to do. Keep in mind that a Starter Package is basically the best deal. You can earn REC in-game to rent ships, weapons and shields and find out what works for you.

Which ship should you buy?

It’s hard to pick a ship package if you just learned about the game. It helps if you think about what you want to do in the verse. Which profession or role are you interested in? Do you like trading, exploring or maybe you’re a pirate?
I recommend any starter ship like the Aurora MR Package, the Mustang Starter pack or the Aurora MR combo Package. This is a starter pack that get you the best bang for your buck. You can always upgrade to a different ship or earn REC and use it to rent other ships. With REC you can try before you buy!
The more expensive packages are to support the game. You won’t be able to compete with a Super Hornet as the Aurora MR is not meant for dog fighting. Try upgrading this ship to an Aurora LN when the upgrade is available. If you want to compete in dog fighting in the current state of the game, the Hornet might be a better choice.
