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. When someone registers with your referral you will automatically get 5,000 UEC. You can spend these credits in Voyager Direct. As a result you will get a Recruitment Point with every new backer and rewards will be unlocked. Below are a few of the rewards that are currently available.

How to get your own referrals?

So how do I get my own Star Citizen referrals? Once 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 will able to share your referral code amongst friends. Additionally you can share your key on my Facebook page and also add your code to the Reddit referral code randomizer. There is a small chance that someone will use your code in the randomizer. 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 your own rewards 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!

How to use the Star Citizen 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. Remember that if you already have an account you can’t use the code, you have to enter the referral code on registration.

Reward program controversy

When CIG announced the referral program many backers were spamming their codes everywhere. It was a complete mess and the star citizen subreddit was flooded. As a result the mods forbid 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 code. Most noteworthy is that you don’t have to buy an expensive package. You can earn REC in game to rent ships, weapons and shields and more to test what suits you best. I have written an article about Electronic Rental Equipment if you want to know more.

What can I do in game if I buy this game now?

There’s missions, multi-player and lots of things to do. It’s not a full game at the moment to be honest but you can see the potential. There is a game and it is quite enjoyable. The graphics are stunning even at low settings! Remember that this is just the first step towards a game that probably won’t be finished for another year or two. Furthermore new content gets added to Star Citizen about every 2 months. Remember that the game is in alpha and full of bugs, it won’t be a smooth experience.

The mini Persistent Universe (PU)

The mini Persistent Universe is only a glimpse of the final multiplayer game. At this moment there are several things you can do other then gazing at the stars and beautiful scenery. There are several missions available, FPS combat (still very alpha) and an outlaw station called Grimhex.
Don’t forget to put on your space suit, you will choke if you enter the decompression rooms without one!

Which star citizen package should i 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 want to be a trader, pirate, explorer etc.
I recommend any starter ship like the Aurora MR Package 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 an try before you buy!
The more expensive packages are to support the game. It has to be said that you won’t be able to compete with a Super Hornet as the Aurora MR is not meant to be a dog fighter. 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.
