How it works

  • Step 1

    Send invite, or post link

    Send a custom invite via email or post an open invitation using your personal recruitment link.

  • Step 2

    They upgrade

    Your recruit subscribes to EVE Online at any point during or after their trial.

  • Step 3

    Choose rewards

    Your Recruits and Rewards page keeps track of invites, recruits and new rewards to claim.

Reward Eligibility for Recruit Invites made from Trial Accounts
  • To be eligible for rewards, the new Recruit account needs to be activated and the subscription fee for the Recruit account received by CCP. The Recruit account subscription fee may not be paid using any in-game currency or other game credits, including (but not limited to): PLEX, CD Keys, including CD Keys or CD-Key type Starter Packs purchased or received from non-CCP sources and online stores such as, but not limited to: Amazon Starter Packs, Gamers Gate, and Game Stop.
Reward Eligibility for Recruit Invites made from Active (Paying) Accounts
  • Eligibility for Active Accounts is the same as above, but they can also use PLEX to pay the subscription fee.
Terms and Conditions
  • Any active EVE Online account with a verified email address may send Recruit Program invitations.
  • Recruit accounts must be created using the links provided in the Recruit Program invitation email or that provided on https://secure.eveonline.com/recruit/invite.aspx. Be sure your friends use a Recruit Program invitation to create their account in order for you to earn your reward when they subscribe to EVE Online.
  • Once the new Recruit account is established and the subscription fee received by CCP, the player submitting the invitation may receive their award. For players having a paid account for EVE Online, the reward will be PLEX or 30 days' additional game time. For players having a trial account for EVE Online, the reward will be 30 days' additional game time. No substitutions are permitted. CCP reserves the right to change the rewards from time to time.
  • To claim a PLEX reward, you will need to have an active, paying EVE Online account at the time your friend purchases the EVE Online Recruit subscription. Users with trial EVE Online accounts are not eligible for PLEX rewards.
  • CCP reserves the right not to reward you with PLEX (such as when a new Recruit account is upgraded using PLEX)
  • To claim a 30 day game time reward, you will need to have an active or lapsed EVE Online trial account with a verified email address or an active or lapsed paying EVE Online account with a verified email address at the time your friend purchases the EVE Online Recruit subscription.
  • Reward eligibility is further determined by the Recruit account's activation method and other criteria listed in these Terms and Conditions.
  • Please note that once your friend purchases an EVE Online subscription, your reward may take up to 24 hours to be applied.
  • CCP reserves the right to restrict eligibility for some rewards according to other criteria stated in the Recruit Program, including but not limited to minimum account age or minimum client log-in time of the inviter.
  • The Recruit Program is intended for you to encourage new players to join EVE Online. Violating the purpose of the Recruit Program in any way or form is prohibited. Abusing the Recruit Program 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).
  • Only the first method of payment is taken into consideration for this program and no subsequent payments provide eligibility.
