Recruit Friends

★★★★ Novice

Myself and another player both have accounts and play already and are trying to add each other as recruits but are unable to. It seems as though you can only add a recruit if they initially download and start the game from you invite message? Is this the case? If so okay I guess, just seems crazy that currently players can’t be recruits with one another.

Hello zzithifty,

It's like you said. As a Commander, you send out an invitation to your friends via one of the offered social channels. Once they join the game, they become your Recruits. 
Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

I'm not able to send out invitations at all. What am I supposed to do?

Would you mind elaborating on what exactly is wrong?

Do you get an error message of some sort? Or are the invitations sending out, but not being received by anyone? 


It would help me greatly if you could capture your invitation process for me (screenshots/video) so that I can see what exactly is wrong there. 


Thank you for your time & have a great day! 


Kind regards,
