The Referral Page is back and ready to be put to use! You can now earn coins as your friends progress through the game. You will receive silver coins when your friends reach level 2 and when they become Verified; and you will receive gold coins the first time your friends purchase coins. To start inviting your friends, go to www.heroesofnewerth.com/referral.

50 silver coins per level...

and 200 for verified...

Oh well, not worth abusing I guess :P

What if your "friend" bought gold coins for you; do you still get the 100 gold coin bonus? I sense abuse.

08-19-2011, 06:03 PM
Yay! Now people will profit while smurfing!

I can't imagine the amount of smurfing that would result if you could get more silver coins on your main account by "referring" yourself and playing that account to verified level then by just playing normally...

100 gold is okay if they buy coins for $10.

But it should be 400 gold for $30 and 500 gold for $40 deal. This would make it on par with the old referral system.

Sometimes I wonder if S2 actually think their plans through before implementing them... Why would they ever encourage smurfing? It totally ruins the purpose of a matchmaking system

Why not? Some people find it fun to smurf, including people from S2 who admitted into doing it on reddit.

I donīt get why you all are complaining... in the "good old times" you refered a game to a friend and got nothing for it there were no referal systems? S2 is there a possibility to get referal Bonus for a mate I invitet after F2P? The referal was down sadly :/

you'll get 250 silver coins from a friend who reaches level 4, 50 for level 200 and 200 for level 4

the amount of games that is needed to reach this level is better spent on you account because you'll get more coins that way <.<

I would honestly refer people if the option to buy a full account is there. And really, if it were even priced as a regular game at around $40-50 that wouldn't be so bad. Not to side-track this into a F2P rant, which is not my intent, just wish both options were available. Maybe after you're verified you could have the option to purchase a full account?

I'm too tired to dive into theory right now, just wanted to throw this out there. Thanks.

I do not understand my friend I get to lvl 2 and did not give me the 50 pieces of silver I have to wait a day or something please help

Except the majority of the crashes are the results of a poorly configured system and upgrading the hardware most likely won't solve anything.

More incentive to make smurf accounts and verbally abuse teammates while dominating the enemy team? Excellent. Invite all your friends so they can denounce the game as I crush them under my smurfing heel.

08-20-2011, 01:23 AM
I thought smurfing would be great fun but once I verified my first account I went straight back to Legacy, limited heroes is good since I'm so indecisive but the kind of people you come across in unverified. . . never again

I can't tell which is worse, the griefers who do whatever the hell they want since theres no threat from RAP or the honest-to-god firsttime MOBA players who dont know what a lane or items are and will run straight through towers and use health pots to heal up their 40hp deficit *shudder*

Guys...as it is stated:
One time 50 Silver Coins for lvl 2.
One time 200 Silver Coins for lvl 5.

That means, you just get 250 Silver Coins for playing untill level 5.
But, that's not bad overall ;)

This doesn`t encourage smurfing. For getting to verified status(level 5?) you`ll get 250coins, you`d earn same while playing on your main account and not having to deal with non-verified players.

Changanigans
08-20-2011, 07:29 AM
It doesn't exactly discourage smurfing either. It discourages smurfing even less than before. Maybe if they removed the silver coins reward and rewarded gold coin purchases exclusively...

How does this even work? Where do you enter the referal code when creating an account? I can't find it.

People smurf already without any rewards, and now that you can smurf and still gain silver coins for ur main theres more incentive to do so, as there are less downsides to doing it.

I'm really stupid or something, but when you create an account there is no option to write the referal code in, how do you activate this ffs

Go to your Mainaccount and click Refer-a-friend, there's a registration link that automatically includes the referal code at registration. Copy paste it to whoever you want or use it for yourself etc.

The problem was never on our side, the problem was to convince friends to make a HoN account and play it, what to THEY get from being referred ?
Why should they use my referral and not sign on their own ?

this is a damn good idea. Smurfing is nothing new. Believe it or not, if they introduced this before the F2P switch, people would still be smurfin.

how to smurf:
A. get another PC
or
B. get a dynamic IP, install hon multiple times, be careful with registry they might add and my documents files
or
C. secret :)

They accept paypal, if you can't get money onto a paypal account your country isn't creditworthy and you probable have stolen your computer.

i've made 850 silver coins with this system

to maximize your coin earning efforts, you stop playing the account at level 2

lvl 2 needs 200 exp (.25 coins per exp point), lvl 5 needs 1400 exp (.14 coins per exp point)

also another good tip is to only play on accounts that can get the first victory of the day bonus 4 wins (30 exp each) and 4 first victories (20 exp each) equal 200 exp. So that means you just need 4 games to earn 50 coins, 12.5 coins per game is pretty damn good.

However to do this, you'd need to make multiple accounts, and keep track of which ones were able to get the bonus.
