While you're at it, remove Snowabe and all his 200+ refer a friend smurf accounts from the Tribunal forums. Helps to remove the people who have already blatantly abused the system for a badge, as an example to those who might use it properly

Don't know what kind of fraud could be so effective with current limitations, but I guess if you see someone with 20 lvl 10 never play again referrals that's indicative. I've refered a bunch of friends who failed to utilize the li.k I sent them, perhaps you could allow existing players to recognize their referral, beyond that, I'm far from caring, none of this applies to or matters to me.

Then don't make exclusive **** that promotes exploiting the system please. That Twitch skin has me drooling in my seat. I almost bought automated referrals that would of cost me two hundred dollars.

All of that just for that Twitch skin. I have many games played as him so....

What if I have in the past created smurfs to play w/ rl friends and some of them (maybe 1/3 of them) were done w/ a referral link?

My friends all suck at this game =/

It is probably best to start all over and just assume all your previous accounts will be banned.

Wait people have already probably used the "fraud" or "Bot"

Do you ban those current ones?

How is this going to work? Aren't you guys suppose to put this in consideration at the first release of refer a friend...

If you don't want refer a friend smurfs than stop making us do your advertising when the goals are impossible for a normal person to reach.
