The question why you do you want that? So you can make hyperlink abuse the system with youtube vid or some other forms to get some "new" players in eve? this is not league of legends where you can have "advantage" over the game.

Short answer no

If there was a loyalty program, why would you get something on your first day?

How do you expect a new subscription to be eligible for some kind of loyalty program? You sort of have to stick around for awhile to be consider loyal.

That said, there is the passive SP you can earn by training skills as mentioned. ..and then, there is the potential to earn enough ISK to buy PLEX in game to pay your Sub. ..and of course, you could always buy a GTC with a free skinned Catalyst attached.

Then there are the yearly anniversary and Christmas gifts. ..and gifts for attending Fanfest, and other things. Alliance tournaments, etc..

Actually, quite a lot. Last winter I got sent up in a high altitude balloon to see what space flight might be like. Smile

I have this account since august 2007. I'm opening a second account and and I'm just wondering if there is a reward system in this case. I know it works with the invitesin the case of a trial, but what about in the case of a full account ?

for opening a second account there sometimes is "Power of 2" which gives you a second account with 180 days of gametime for 50 euro or 3 plex. currently that offer isnt available, i think it comes about twice a year for a month. don't know when exactly it usually starts

You get a free month on your first account if you sent yourself a buddy invite.

So, you have an account that has been yours since August 2007, right? And you started a second account without using the first one to extend a "Buddy invite"? Is that correct? If yes, the answer to you question in the nicest possible terms is no.

But, if that is all true, I have to ask, why in the name of all that is drone DIDN'T you send yourself a "Buddy invite" so you could get a free month?

EvE itself is the loyalty program. The longer you play the more skilled you become making for bigger and better things in your EvE career. From battles that you will remember for the rest of your life to closing multi trillion ISK deals, even spending months infiltrating corps just for that one moment of bliss when you pull off a grand heist and leave them blinking like a deer in headlights.

EvE is what you make it, so dream big and go hard son.

Play EvE how you want to play it and do not let others dictate how you play. Evolve your playstyle to protect yourself from others! Even in "PVE", "PVP" is there, lurking in the shadows.

You got it. That's all correct.

I was so excited by the process to which I hesitated five years since I've thought about that after. I then realized that the buddy invite works only if the second account to be open is a Trial one...

I petitioned that, without much illusion ..

Indeed, but you have to fund the account creation of the 2nd anyway, so it's not really gaining anything. At best, from a financial angle, it simply 'balances out'.

Also, this is an American thing where schoolchildren are constantly rewarded...ALL of them for doing either bad or well in various activities. One just gets rewarded for everything nonsensical, and we are now seeing this concept dragged into the adult world now that that particular generation is 'grown up'.

Yes, The loyalty program works as follows.

First you become addicted to the game.
Then you waste some of your hard earned money buying plex to fund your addiction.
For years you argue against the game haters and defend to Devs, no matter how bad the patches are.
You finally accumulate all the wealth you'll ever need in game, and say "I win"
You then realize that your addicted to a game that has little content for the advanced player and your isk is worthless because it can't buy you anything new.
You become a Bittervet and rarely log on your multiple accounts other than to change skills.
You become a forum troll and argue any point as long as you know it will irritate someone.
You become so bored in game you start giving stuff away to random people that you suspect might be new.


A a reward for your loyalty, you receive numerous Christmas presents that are only useful to new players.
You realize that any petitions you ever sent to CCP have been returned with "The logs show nothing" and "Working as intended".
You watch as CCP puts out another expansion that isn't an expansion, to address issues that should have been fixed years ago.

Your reward? Many wasted hours pursuing an endgame that does not exist.....Welcome to EVE! Lol





I am not, nor will I ever be...Nicky Yo.... The question you should ask is.....When will they release the NICKY!
