Recruit a Friend

The Recruit a Friend Program allows players to send invitations to friends, family, and fellow gamers so they can register a free EVE Online Alpha account, and receive a reward for their referral.

Please note that specific Terms and Conditions apply to the Recruit a Friend Program and it is advised to read them before using the program. The Terms and Conditions can be found at the end of this article.


Reward Structure

A recruiter collects rewards for both each new recruit, as well as the total number of accounts he recruited.

For each recruit the inviter can receive:

15 Days of Omega Game Time

First time the new recruit buys 
1+ Month of Omega Game Time through the Account Management Site.

4 x 24hr Accelerators

First time the new recruit buys
 PLEX (any amount).


For the total number of new recruits that upgrade
 to Omega, the recruiter will receive:

Unique Triglavian Apparel

For 1 upgraded recruit

Pacifier and unique SKIN

For 2 upgraded recruits

30 days of Omega time

For 5 upgraded recruits

Enforcer and unique SKIN

For 10 upgraded recruits

2000 PLEX

For 20 upgraded recruits

Marshal and unique SKIN

For 40 upgraded recruits


Claiming the rewards

PLEX rewards are added to the accounts PLEX Vault.

Omega Time rewards will be directly credited to the inviting account, and added to any existing Omega time.

All other rewards are added to the redeeming system of the account that sent the invites, once the conditions are met. Please note that there may be up to 24 hours delay between qualifying for a reward and it being added to the redeeming system.





What do you mean by „eligible“ payment?

Only the payments a new recruitee makes directly through our account website will trigger the rewards for the inviter.

This means that upgrading with PLEX, 3rd party codes or any other payment method will not create a reward.

If a new recruit upgrades his account with an ineligible payment, the system will simply ignore it and wait for an eligible payment. So if a new recruit first upgrades with a 3rd party code it will not result in a reward, but the first time a payment is made through our website, the appropriate reward will be created.


I‘ve already invited 40 friends. Now what?

Our reward structure currently maxes out at 40 friends. All recruits after the 40th only create the individual reward, and are not a part of the total recruits reward structure.

However, we will monitor the program and further rewards may be added at a later time.


What if my friend wants to create his new account via Steam?

While existing Steam accounts can send invites to others and get rewards, it is not possible to create an account linked to Steam through an invite.


Why can‘t I send the email from the website anymore? Now I have to copy the link and send it myself.

Due to GDPR policies, we can no longer send an email on your behalf to a 3rd party, not even to your friend. You receive an invitation link instead, which can be shared on social media or sent out privately. This invite link does not expire and can be used for all your recruits.


I‘ve already sent my old invitation link to all my friends. Can they still use it to sign up?

Invitation links created before July 11th will continue to work fine, however it must be stressed that new recruits MUST join via a recruitment link in order for their recruiter to be eligible for the rewards from the new recruitment program.

Terms and Conditions

Reward Eligibility

In order to be eligible for rewards, the new Recruit’s account needs to be activated and the fee from these new Recruit accounts received by CCP. The new Recruit’s account fee may not be paid using Direct Debit, any in-game currency or other game credits, including (but not limited to) PLEX or CD Keys, nor items, packs or CD Keys purchased or received from non-CCP sources or online stores. Please note that once a player is eligible for rewards, the reward may take up to 24 hours to be delivered.

Terms and Conditions

Any active EVE Online account with a verified email address may send Recruitment Program invitations.

New Recruit accounts must be created using the custom link provided on the Recruitment Program Website: In order for the player sending the invitation to be eligible for rewards when new Recruit accounts achieve set milestones, the custom link must be used to create the accounts. For a full list of rewards and milestones, please visit the Recruitment Program Website:

Once the new Recruit account and character have been created, 1,000,000 Skill Points will be sent to the redeeming queue of the respective new Recruit’s account.

Once the fee from the new Recruit’s account has been received by CCP, the player that sent the invitation is then eligible to receive their rewards. No substitutions are permitted. The rewards will be sent to the redeeming queue of the Recruiter’s account. Please note that once a player is eligible for rewards, the reward may take up to 24 hours to be delivered.

The reward structure is divided into two parts: the rewards a player can receive per Recruit (Part 1) and rewards a player can receive as more of their Recruits upgrade to Omega (Part 2). For Part 1, a player sending the invitation is eligible to receive each listed reward once per Recruit. For Part 2, a player is eligible to receive each listed reward only once.

CCP reserves the right to change both the rewards and milestones at any point in time at their discretion.

To be eligible for the rewards, the account sending the invitation needs to have a verified email address. Reward eligibility is further determined by the Recruit account`s activation method and other criteria listed in these Terms and Conditions.

CCP reserves the right to restrict eligibility for some or all rewards according to criteria other than that stated in the Recruitment Program, including (but not limited to) minimum account age or minimum client log-in time of the player sending the invitation.

The Recruitment Program is intended to encourage players to invite new players to join EVE Online. Violating the purpose of the Recruitment Program in any way, shape or form is prohibited. Abusing the Recruitment Program (such as by creating multiple accounts to farm rewards) is considered an exploit and will not be tolerated. Violations of this rule will be handled by EVE Online Customer Support, and action will be taken against players who violate this rule, including (but not limited to)warnings or bans of the offending accounts and confiscation of ISK and other items.
