    New Mentor Rewards?!

    One of my disciples just graduated, my 7th and all have given me a 5 star rating. The first 6 times I have got Hunter Mentor Edition armour parts, mainly gloves and normally below 3PED TT.

    This time I got ....

    1x

    Neurobiotic booster A4 10mg

    Value 0.02
    Increased skill gain 40%
    For 36000.0s

    Has a mistake happened?

    I spend hours a week helping new players most of which aren’t my disciples and in addition to answering many questions I give lifts all out of my own pocket. All in the hope the player base will continue to nicely grow.

    However I find this “reward” a little insulting

    It is a small reward

    Mentoring is reward in itself as you see your disciples grow and help others.

    Yeah if you actually play the game that pill can be quite useful, worth more than shitty 2 PED armour piece

    This.

    You don't want the mentorship gifts to be too nice and issued all the time because then you start getting people trying to add noobs as disciples the minute they set foot in game before they know any better all in an effort to rake in some free stuff for ZERO effort other than answering a few basic questions.

    On another note though, MA needs to implement an affiliate program.


    • Affiliate referrals to the game that spend $X and gain X skill should result in some sort of one off material gain for the person referring them.
    • Mentoring on the other hand should only be done for the intangible reward of helping others grow. If a disciple feels the mentor has helped them they can certainly offer the mentor something in return as a "thank you".


    IMO I feel it makes more sense for it to be up to the disciple to reward the mentor rather than MA.

    I recall hearing about this but thought it was just a small few that were able to join for a breif period.

    I was thinking more of a public program where everyone is able to be an affiliate would be better.

    You need to be able to confidently bring in hundreds to thousands of people to join, otherwise it's not worth the hassle for MA to setup, and the ease of abuse. If someone made an affiliate alt account, they would probably be able to hunt for a profit based on how the affiliate system works (giving a portion of decay back to the affiliate that referred the user)
