I see a bunch of codes being thrown out but no instructions in how to use them. I looked through google searches and mog station and the support to figure this one out but nothing. They say just to download the trial which is done but no where to enter a code. Any help would be appreciated...

A man who fears nothing is a man who loves nothing; and if you love nothing, what joy is there in your life?

this one for PC at least, if i remember correctly.. Go log into Mog Station -> Account Services tab on top left and there should be a button to enter it.. something called like.. "enter recruitment code" or something on it like that. cant see the button myself as my account is long since beyond new.. :)

 

also a shameless plug for a unused code i got, feel free to use it if you want to: A4E9JCUD

I see no option of this, just enter a serial code, so confusing lol.

Well, I don't even get those options. Only wants me to put in a license for the game. As far as the email goes the info is limited as well. Tells me who my friend is that wants to me to play, which server, and the code. Gives a link to mog and thats about it. The wording make it seem like you need to purchase first before even using the code at all, which doesn't make sense.

hm.. the forums and reddit wasnt much help on this as i been digging info.. but it could be that you need a game serial code before you can enter it.. which is sort of wierd and on one point makes sense but that friend code would need to be entered before getting game time on the said account (the 30 days that comes with game purchase does not count)..

I'm looking into this as well, waiting on the confirmation email for a dummy account. Maybe you need to purchase the game, but not purchase any game time?

Logic, reason and fact do not supersede human nature. Ignorance reigns without justice.

People bypass entire systems to get these codes; they are supposed to put their friend's email in the recruit a friend section of their account, but they instead send an email to themselves to get a code and then place it in forums hoping someone will snag it.  This oft leads to them not even telling people what is int he email they got, and those who want to try get frustrated.

 

Personally, I've been having people just message me with their email and I send them a legit code and email that doesn't bypass the system as a whole.  It's a lot slower for both parties, but it gets the job done.  Though I have had a person or two ask me why I needed their email since others just give codes outright.

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

That's why I decide to post the codes; I wouldn't give my email address to a stranger either.

Here is a copy of the actual recruit email:

Friend recruitment codes are for people that are purchasing or resubscribing to the game. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I believe signing up for the trial is a separate matter.
