I do think it's a good idea and I also think it's something SSO needs - and maybe should have done earlier already. This could get them a bunch of brand new players, if more people would try to get their friends to join. Just a couple of cool rewards to the system, and we're good to go! Although it can't just be "get 5 friends to join and earn star coins", because it can be easily used by just making the accounts on your own. First thing that comes to my mind is to reward the recruiter when their friend buys Star Rider for example. Maybe there's more rewards if you get more people to join, like something for 1 person recruited, something else for 5 recruited etc. Maybe something when they hit a specific level? This way you can't just make free accounts for your own benefit, and Star Stable would get something out of this as well (the SR purchase your friend made).

Hmm, how very interesting. Star coins as a reward will surely encourage people to use the recruitment system at least. I just feel like it comes little too easy if all you need to do is to get a friend to level 4, that doesn't even require a purchase from them. I'm certainly interested to see how the other rewards will be achieved, probably along the way your recruit makes progress through the game. That frog is cute though, you're not the only one who needs it Rebecca!
WHAT THE HANG?! OMG DAT FROG SO COOL.... WHY ISN'T IT A CCCCAAAAATTTT!!!! XD Recruit a friend? Umm.... I have a full friend list is that what is means? Sorry i'm so confuse xD OMG WE CAN GET 450 STAR COINS BY DOING ALL 3 OF THE RECRUITS!!!

It is most probably meant so that you need somebody, who hasn't played SSO yet. You are supposed to send e.g. an electronic invitation to this person and via a link he/she will create an account so the system will recognise them as a friend who started playing thanks to you - at least that's how I understand this feature.

Hmmm.. I think it's a good idea for SSO and a nice reward for player, but I think it should have a better reward if the introduced friend actually buys star rider, and maybe even a bigger reward still if they buy lifetime. And I actually have some people I am trying to get to look at the game, sooooooooo.... *rubs hands together gleefully*
Just thought of this. What's to stop players from making alt accounts and taking them up to level four just to get the rewards? Will SSO have a way of telling it's not a truly new person?
I have alt accounts and was considering making one star rider over the holidays. Will I get the reward for that? I think that should be eligible, but I can see tons of newbie accounts being created (but never starred) just to get the reward. I think the reward system should be tied to membership-- even if only a recurring membership- for that reason. I can still see some people creating alt accounts and putting one month membership on them just to get the rewards, but at least that way SSO actually gets something out of it.

I think it's cheesy actually. (Not that I'd blame anybody for doing it.) SSO seems to be growing by leaps and bounds, so I'm not sure how necessary it is, either. Plus I wonder if I really want people I know in real intruding into my lovely Jorvik world? lol

With previous games I've played that have this feature, you actually have to enter your friend's email address so that would prevent people just making heaps of accounts. The email has a link in it that would direct them to making an account; this could be a way to prevent some of the problems?

Amelia, you have to create an email address (or have one) to create a new account anyway and it's simple to make a free email account. How would that prevent people from making new throw-away accounts just to get the reward?

The Magic of Winter December 07, 2023
Hey, Starfam! A snowfall has dusted Jorvik in a powdered-sugar coating, turning it into a sweet, winter dreamscape. Sleighs are dotted around the land, ready to whisk you away to the magical Winter Village!
But something’s not right!
The Winter Village lacks luster. A dullness has tinged its usual sparkle. A mischievous capran has broken the most magical winter crystal that harnessed all of winter's magic! Winter Magic has scattered across the village and things have gotten a bit chaotic, leaving the energy wild and unbalanced. It must be restored and only you can bring the Winter Village back to its former charm!
You must restore the crystal by collecting magic and channeling it properly! Winter Magic is bestowed upon those who participate in any of the numerous winter activities.
First, meet the Mischievous Capran in the Winter Village, where he will attempt to explain himself and start you on your journey.
Winter Activities Collecting Winter Magic doesn’t only restore the crystal, it also rewards Jorvik Shillings, Horse XP, Player XP, Tokens, clothes, or tack! There are many activities, new and old, to partake in:
★ Ice carving with Alex. Create a frosty masterpiece!
★ Weather reports show that the blizzards have returned! Help your fellow Jorvegians survive the snow crisis. Two snow storms will appear per day and rotate every hour so you have multiple opportunities to catch them both.
★ Collect magical snowflakes around the Winter Village to earn Winter Magic
★ Ride through snow piles
★ Randomized festivities in the Winter Village. These festivities shuffle every hour. So make sure to return often to complete them all! These can be found around Jorvik, but most are found in the Winter Village. Don’t miss the Penguin Concert and Stargazing which have been revamped this year!
The Yule Tree Step into the Winter Village and what could there be? Six wrapped presents sitting under the tree!
Visit the Yule Tree at the center of the Winter Village each day in December to unwrap a new treat. There are six gifts already waiting for you! Don’t worry if you miss a day, gifts will remain wrapped and waiting until you return. Just don’t forget to collect them all before the Wednesday update on January 10th!
Frost-Fueled Excitement The exhilarating Fast and Frosty Race, along with the Winter Village Race, are back! Gear up for an unforgettable winter racing experience.
New Game Onboarding! Our new players can enjoy a brand-new beginning to the game. This longer introduction takes you to a brand-new location, the Riding Camp! This content will match the quality of quests we make today and represents the excitement of the game to come. Players can now meet the Soul Riders at the very beginning of their Star Stable journey.
Any players who have not completed the old onboarding quests, will be reset so they can enjoy the full experience.
New Starter Tack Of course brand-new onboarding must come with an upgraded starter tack for your horse! Everyone who still has their starter tack will have theirs replaced with the new one. The original tack is now for sale at Marley’s Farm if you’re feeling nostalgic. Also, in case you deleted your starter tack, the new one is available for all in the Global Shop. Both will be at a lower price!
Retrofitting tack The Icelandic, Shire and Arabian will now be able to wear more items in game as we have retrofitted tack to be compatible with these breeds! We cannot wait to see all of your in-game pictures and edits with more outfits.
Bonus Shop! A new item is available in the Moorland Bonus Shop to all of you who became Star Rider by one-time payment! This feline Night Rider is a rebel at heart! Kitt is the perfect mix of adorable and adventurous!
Coming NEXT WEEK! The return of magic beckons newfound companions to the Winter Village. Encounter the charm of two sweet and frosty horses, the delightful Lebkuchen and the frost-kissed Vetle, accompanied by their companions, Gumdrop and Murrlan!
Have a cozy week!
Love from your Star Stable Team ♥
