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 the first Omega/PLEX purchase each recruited accounts makes, as well as the total number of accounts he recruited.


Recruiter Rewards
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 account’s 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.


Recruiting Existing Accounts

If you have an existing account and want to have it linked as a recruit, use the recruitment link from Recruit a Friend and find this option near the bottom of the page:


There you can log in with your existing account and it will be linked as a recruit of the owner of the recruitment link.

When you log into the game again you will find your skill point token in the redeeming system.

You can also create your own recruitment link. Keep in mind that a recruit cannot become their recruiter’s recruiter.



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 have 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.


Can I send my referral code to already existing accounts?

Yes, you can!


Will I receive rewards for the recruitee’s past purchases?

You will only receive the Recruiter Rewards but not the Recruiter Benefits for past purchases, see the rewards structure above. You are only eligible for Recruiter Benefits when a recruit upgrades to Omega for the first time.

Terms and Conditions

Recruitment Program

The Recruitment Program is intended to encourage players to invite new players to join EVE Online as well as reap rewards for controlling multiple accounts.


Recruitment Linking

Any active EVE Online account (Recruiter) with a verified email address may be used to generate and share Recruitment Program invitations via a custom link provided on the Recruitment Program Website. Once another account (Recruit) has been created or authenticated using that link, both accounts will become linked and eligible to receive Rewards.


Existing accounts can only be recruited if they are not linked to any Recruiter accounts. Each account can only be linked as a Recruit once, and a Recruit account can not be a Recruiter for its own Recruiter account (no cross-recruiting).



Once the Recruit account has been created and/or linked, 1,000,000 Skill Points will be sent to the redeeming queue of that account.


In order for a Recruiter to be eligible for rewards, the new Recruit's account needs to achieve set milestones and commit further to EVE Online. The reward structure is divided into two parts: the rewards a player can receive per Recruit that upgrades to Omega (Part 1) and the rewards a player can receive as more of their Recruits upgrade to Omega or purchase PLEX (Part 2). For Part 1, a player sending the invitation can receive each listed reward once per Recruit that upgrades to Omega or buys PLEX. For Part 2, a player can receive each listed reward only once.


For a complete list of rewards and milestones, please visit the Recruitment Program Website.


Reward Eligibility

For either Recruiter or Recruit to be eligible for Rewards when Recruit accounts achieve set milestones, the custom link must be used to link the accounts. Accounts created via other channels will not be eligible for Rewards.


The milestones include the Recruit upgrading to 1+ Month Omega and the Recruit buying PLEX in the official EVE Store. These may not be paid using Direct Debit or any in-game currency, 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. For a complete list of rewards and milestones, please visit the Recruitment Program Website.


Once the Recruit account has reached the relevant milestones, the account that sent the invitation is eligible to receive its rewards. No substitutions are permitted. The rewards will be sent to the redeeming queue of the Recruiter's account. 


Please note that once the Recruiter or Recruit account is eligible for rewards, the reward may take up to 24 hours to be delivered.


Rights and Restrictions

CCP reserves the right to change rewards and milestones at any time at its discretion.


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 client log-in time of the account sending the invitation.


Violating the stated purpose of the Recruitment Program in any way, shape, or form is prohibited. Abusing the Recruitment Program (such as by creating multiple accounts that are discarded later to farm rewards) is considered an exploit and will not be tolerated. EVE Online Customer Support will handle violations of these terms and will take action against players who violate them, including, but not limited to, warnings or bans of the offending accounts and confiscation of ISK and other items.
