The table above shows the total starting amount players will start out having both with and without using the referral code. The referral bonus grants 5000 UEC bonus to the amount that comes with the game package.
This information is for when the game is released and the in-game currency persists. During Alpha the game package UEC IS NOT the Alpha starting balance. More on that below.
Alpha UEC Starting Amounts <- Important
For Star Citizen Alpha 3.8 and on players have access to the Bonus aUEC plus any UEC in the account. UEC from game packages is NOT INCLUDED which means that the Starting Amounts for Star Citizen Alpha is reduced.
This means that players wanting to test the Star Citizen Alpha will start with 0 aUEC credits UNLESS they use a referral code when they create the account. This makes a huge difference as 5000 aUEC is a great boost to be able to buy weapons, armor, supplies, and even potential fines for new players starting.
Since during Alpha the account balance is wiped periodically on average every 6 weeks (see article on Star Citizen In Game Economy for more info on wipes).
Important Requirement For The Referral Bonus
To qualify as a referral you must spend $40 or more. Sometimes a year CIG / RSI releases discounted starter packs for $35. If your package is gifted or you bought a discounted pack for less than $40 you will not count as a referral nor will you receive the referral bonus.
Where to add your referral code when purchasing Star Citizen
Be sure to enter the referral code on the Enlist page at RSI and use the referral code: STAR-H3MY-F5SH to earn an additional 5,000 free UEC when you purchase a game package for the first time.
You will not get another chance to insert the Star Citizen Referral Code after creating the account so it is important to fill it in when you sign up.
Star Citizen New Backer Checklist
Key points before you back Star Citizen
- The game will probably take at least several more years to make
- Alpha testing can be a very rough play testing experience
- System requirements might get steeper
- You only need to buy the cheapest starter pack
This game has no monthly fees and all the game packages (from Aurora MR to Constellation) grant access to the same content in game. The difference being the starting ship, items contained in the package and the starting in game currency amounts - UEC. The referral code grants significant more amounts of UEC and is a great starting boost for all the packages.
