Rift + Storm Legion + 1 month game time = Free

redekaredeka Sherwood Park, ABPosts: 5Member

There is a great promotion going on over at Raptr gaming right now. If you play Rift while their desktop app is open, they will set you up with Rift, Storm Legion, and 1 month free game time. I can confirm it works, as I just received my free copy and got my GF set up :). Here's what to do:

1. Sign up and Download the Rift client. (Note: This is my ascend-a-friend referal link. If this is against terms, I can change it to a generic link.)

2. Download the Raptr Deskop App. This must be run in the background while you play Rift.

3. Log enough hours and collect your free goodness (I simply left my Rift game open over night and in the morning I had enough hours to collect the bonus).

4. Enjoy!!

 

I am on the Faeblight server, and my name is Redeka (defiant faction) if you want to play together.

 

Edit: As mentioned below, you may be sent back to the character selection screen if you idle for too long, but as long as the game remains open Ratpr will continue to add  hours played.

    So....the game didn't kick you out because of inactivity?

  • redekaredeka Sherwood Park, ABPosts: 5Member
    Yes, it kicked me out of the server and back to the character selection screen, but as long as the game is open, Raptr counts it as playtime.

    Indeed. Here's is a guide on how to get the hours without any trouble: http://riftmaniacs.blogspot.com/

    Hope it's useful. 

    Cheers.

    PD: For those wondering if it's fake, it's not. I actually get the free stuff and I'm having lots of fun playing Rift with friends. All of you who didn't know this game, it's time to give it a try! :)

    STFU n00b !

    I got storm legion on my current account and 30 days gametime, is an awesome promotion to try out the new content.

  • redekaredeka Sherwood Park, ABPosts: 5Member
    Yes it is great, I can't beleive its totally free. SL is like, 40 bucks retail...
  • AcidonAcidon Salem, ORPosts: 797Member

    Just verifying that this does indeed work.  I got my hours when raptr first came out, so all these goodies were automatically awarded to me when they came out.  This is the only reason I have SL on my 2nd (mule) account.  I was able to fully migrate to Tempest Bay (yay). 

    The Raptr pet isn't bad either.  The stone shoulders would be cool if you could dye them.  Oh well, still unique.

    I'm thinking about doing this.  It would be a really easy way to upgrade to SL.  I'm just really leery of installing rapr, xfire, or any of those third party tracking programs.  I sort of consider them bunkware.

    How hard is it to delete raptr and remove all traces of it from the machine?  Do they spam your email?  As in do I need to make an email alias just for this?

  • redekaredeka Sherwood Park, ABPosts: 5Member
    I was a little concerned as well. The program is nicely stream lined and easy to use. I have not received any spam in my inbox yet, but using a disposable email can't hurt if that's kind of thing keeps you up at night. I haven't tried uninstalling it yet, so I can't comment in that. I do however, use the program more than I expected for its social features.

    any ideas if these codes expire if you dont use them?

     

    i already own rift + Storm Legion, but i got this promo code and i also have another raptor code for rift + SL from the previous promotion they did when SL first launched. So now i have two codes and i want to know if they dont expire so i can trade them for 2 other games.

    I'm like you.  I don't like programs like this, xFire, even Steam.

    But I'm in a unique position.  This is how my oldest boy and I keep track of each others gaming habits and keep in touch.

     

    It's extremely easy to uninstall.  Don't worry about that.  I've had it installed for months this time and no issues.

     

    Take that as you will.  =)

    woops, missed this.  Should have multi-quoted.  Yes these codes expire around the middle of June (iirc).  Just for reference.

    I'd had heard about Raptr before, but never downloaded it due to them using Adobe Air (LOL!) in early versions. 

    I downloaded it for the RIFT deal, tho, which by the way, I claimed yesterday and it worked like a charm. But Raptr is actually a really neat, lightweight tool. The social features, like many others, I use more than I imagined I would.

    I did uninstall it once before I made my mind up that I was going to go ahead and go for the RIFT deal and the uninstallation was absolutely painless and was completely removed.

    There are only 768 left at this time... guess i won't make it. I would soooo love to get a storm legion key...

  • redekaredeka Sherwood Park, ABPosts: 5Member
    At 768 I would still give it a go. Just leave your game on the character selection screen overnight and you will have your key in the morning. If you get the disconnected message from the server don't push ok and simply ignore the message. Raptr will still count it as time played as long as the game is running.
  • TorvalTorval Oregon CountryPosts: 7,209Member Uncommon

    I've installed raptr and have collected the cosmetics.  Hopefully I'll have the unlock in the morning.

    Just a note.  It seems they have added more keys so don't let that discourage you from trying.

    So far the raptr client has not eaten my children, consumed my soul, or caused the illuminati or Templars to come crashing through my door.  Email and privacy controls seem reasonable.  There are features could be improved (like the ability to link to Facebook and control the posts manually), but it's not bad.  The browser is sort of weird, but whatever.

    Thanks for the heads up. I had the client running and RIft opened over night and claimed my rewards this morning.

    They have stocked them up again, Sl+30 days is back to 3100 remaining, while it was ~700 when i started yesterday.

    I just want to clarify that these codes DO NOT expire around June.

    What happens in June is that this promotion will end, or before if all keys are taken.

     

    But if you have the keys, you can use them today, in July or next year.

     

    The expiration date is just about when the promotion ends, not when the keys expiry (they dont).

  • VyethVyeth Fayetteville, NCPosts: 1,459Member

    I kinda think that this promotion is a test... They are gauging reaction for "free" or in other words "F2P".. Now they are going to give it a month and see what kind of retention they have for the "new" crowd that got in for free.. If many remain subbed, I could see them trying to convert sometime this year..

    Basically its " how many people will play the game and sub if we removed the initial barrier for entry?"

    I'm also shure there is more about it then just giving out say 6000 keys for free, which wouldnt make a difference in population.

    Considering that you can easily hit the required ~12hrs on a free trial account just by testing some classes and goof around in the starting areas and then upgrade to the full game + expansion + 30 days for free as well...
