Those who managed to get recruits (either new or returnees) via the referree-program. How many of those are still active after a couple of weeks?

I managed to get 4 people referred to the game (2 returnees, 2 new people, all via Reddit), but after a few weeks, only one of them is still playing semi-regularly. The others managed to get between 40 & 340 points, before going silent.

 

So I was wondering, how is the situation at your side (you can check it here)? Is there a problem with retention (of both new & veteran players)?

Actually I've recruited just one - a guy asking for referral link on reddit who played NA but wanted to play on EU. He is damn active and I am saving to send him the biggest container.

One returnee playing activly (recieved a small and a medium container from me so far) and even recently refered his own recruit.

Two other returnees came back on their own without an invite. Also currently playing on a semi-daily basis.

 

The game just isn't for everyone. Those who enjoy it do come back.

When the game first went into open beta I managed to convince 6 good friends to try it out and they were pretty regular but they all lost interest with update 0.8.0 and not one was willing to try playing again. 

 

So I can understand why others are having difficulty getting friends to return.

So far have only one and he's still playing (that's .... five? six? weeks or so). Mostly plays on weekends, since I get a bunch of recruitment points (between 150 and 300) when I log into the game on monday.

 

Hasn't reacted to any contacts so far (probably wants to be left alone, I guess).

Not referals but out of the 3 irl friends I used to play with none are still active. Two lost interest (they never were seriously invested anyway, so that was expected), one left because of the CV rework.

I showed my friends this game and said it was boring as hell and had stupid mechanics (objects turning invisible based on certain conditions).

 

they went bak to black deeeesert onpine because the combat was far better in terms of fluidity and speed.

 

makes me wonder if they expected queen elizabeth to karate chop and final flash everything to death in 2 secs on teh maps.

 

oh well.

I used the referral program to invite a real life friend back to the game as he hadn't played in years but had expressed an interest in returning. He played a handful of games and then drifted off again. Haven't seen him online in weeks now.

So only the bots have stuck it out.

 

Nah, they all left as soon as the monetary rewards stopped. WG can't even get bots to keep playing their game.

Back in 2015, i started the game together with 2 friends. Both of them left when the first big captain skill rework happened. To me they said that they didn't want to invest hours into planning and respeccing, but i think that it was just the last straw that broke the camel's back. They wanted to leave and now they had their reason.

 

I invited one of them some months ago so he could collect his free Warspite, but on the very next day he said that it wasn't his cup of tea any more. He hasn't logged back in since then.

Same here. 3 irl friends I played with, all quit with the CV rework (I also play substantially less); only one of them I can sometimes convince to start the game again.

Of all the people I referred (you could refer people back in the days when you got some coal for it for the first 3), and the 5 I currently have in this program, only 1 still plays. IIRC, I referred 9 or 10 people in total... that's just sad.

Well, having added 157 BOT players in total, I switched the program off, but but but, my AI was too good and they still continue to play of their own volition.....
