Buddy Reg Code FAQ

 Where can I buy a Buddy Reg Code?

So, if I get 6 people to join Earth & Beyond, and they all name me as the person who referred them, I'll get 24 skill points and 2 million credits? Plus 6 points and 500K credits for each additional person I bring in?

Can I buy a buddy registration code if I don't live in North America?
Not at this time. We are working on billing solutions that will allow us to offer this program to the rest of the world. Stay tuned.

How will I spend my bonus skill points and credits?
When you bring a character into the game, a window will pop up asking you if you'd like to spend your bonus on the character you're playing. If you don't just click no. You'll be asked about spending your bonus skill points every time you log into the game until you spend them.

Are you allowed to split your bonus skill points and credits between multiple characters?
Not at this time. We are working on that functionality, and it should be available in a future patch.

What's keeping me from buying a bunch of Buddy Reg Codes, using them to strengthen a character with bonus points, then returning the Buddy Reg Codes?
There are no refunds on Buddy Reg codes. You can buy as many as you like, but there is no way to refund your money. This would be a very expensive way to build up your character.

There are no refunds if I buy a Buddy Reg Code?
No. We apologize for this inconvenience. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you verify that your PC can run Earth & Beyond before buying a Buddy Reg Code.

It costs $21.99. It costs less than the boxed game because you're not paying for the box, manual, CDs, etc.
