Title: Referrals on Paradox to Unlock Content for Bloodlines 2?
Post by: DarkProphet on March 23, 2019, 02:59:14 AM
Okay, so apparently there are unlockables you have to get "blood points" to unlock stuff like outfits in the game. It seems you're required to "refer" people by having them click on a link. For example, the one they gave me is below.

https://www.bloodlines2.com/?ref=975cef1f5cea

Do people have to buy the game for you to get the points? Or they have to set up an account? Or just click the link? If it's the latter, I'm not sure. If it's just clicking the link, I say we all just have a topic and post our links and click everyone's so we all have the crap. If it's making people buy the game, though, that's pretty uncool of them to require that for unlocks...

They take the marketing abit far on this one i'd say, already seen people hating on them for selling DLCs ahead of release.

I think you just have to make an account. :) People who signed up for Tender seem to already have one.

For example this is my referral link! https://www.bloodlines2.com/?ref=568f6e477dd7

Thanks, but sadly it did nothing. I have a feeling this may only work for new accounts created through it...  :irritated:

Sorry to double post, but I think this is of import: I'm not sure what all is required, but my account is up to just over 600 points now. I'm not sure if just clicking on someone's referral does it, or if setting up an account from their referral link does it, but yeah, my points skyrocketed just recently and I haven't even been whoring my referral to anyone else. =/

MMO in singleplayer? doesn't sound like a good strategy , I rather play without cheats.  If before I thought of preorder , now I'll wait.

Here's my referral link:

https://www.bloodlines2.com/?ref=5b1737666daa

I noticed I've got more Blood Points than I should have, having only done the quests to find the 5 + 1 Blood Packs - but I'm at 285 now for some reason, rather than 160 or wherever I was at before, when I'd just done the quests.

Do they give you more points over time? It does say "50 days since you were turned", for me, which I think refers to when I created my Tender account.

Post by: DarkProphet on April 02, 2019, 07:37:22 AM
I clicked everyone's referral links in case it might help. My page tells me that like 12 people have been "embraced" by me, so I dunno but I guess it's working?

Everything seems to be cosmetic thus far, but most everything isn't revealed yet.

I'm unsure how the Tender Beta might play into any of this, or if it does.

https://www.bloodlines2.com/?ref=5b67726bde43 (https://www.bloodlines2.com/?ref=5b67726bde43)

But at the moment it doesn´t matter there isn´t  current anything to unlock that require more than 120 blood points.

It's not working for me either. In fact, I believe it may just be for preorders....  :irritated: My counter was at 0 so I actually asked someone I knew didn't have an account to use my link to make one and I was told there was no option to, only to preorder.

DarkProphet, you must have gotten lucky somehow!  :smile:

That sounds kind of like Deus ex selling Praxis kits, I think its overkill marketing for a game like this.

Until we see something that affects gameplay (i.e. skill bonuses like Praxis Kits grant), I wouldn't compare it to the Human Revolution stuff.

Can't say I care much, I never pre-order really.

Though it should be fine with just an account.

I've tested it with some of my friends and only those who made an account gave me some blood points - clicks don't seem to count at all, unfortunately ^^' I really wonder what kind of unlockables will there be besides the Tender t-shirt and the bodyguard outfit! :D Here's my link: https://www.bloodlines2.com/?ref=0446f68b6c42

Maybe they will tie with in-game achievements as well. If so, then for the first time I might see some actual use for that feature in videogames.

Well, I believe you only get points when someone signs up through your link, unfortunately :C As I said, I did some tests with my friends - whenever someone would simply click on my link, I wouldn't get anything, but the moment someone registered through it, I would get the points immediately.

I hope those mannequins aren't an indication of what the in-game male body model looks like.  I want my vamp to have definition and musculature.  Jack was way more muscular than that with strong looking arms.  Plus wasn't Jeanette a bit more...curvaceous than that?

No with bloodpoints you can unlock Rewards / Mini DLCs on the official homepage.
-For 10 blood points you get  a Tender-Shirt for your character.
-For 120 blood points you get a Tender Bodyguard Outfit for your character
-For 170 blood points you get a Haven Decoration Brujah Clan Sign

But you have to register and make a Paradox Account.
If you don´t mind you can use my link to register and in theory i should get 50 points for
"Embrace: Turn your friends by inviting them through 'refer a friend' "
Maybe this time it works and i get atleast 50 points for one embrace.

I wonder if the haven decoration pieces of other clan signs will come as the next unlockables, probably as the next clans are introduced? I really hope for a Toreador one, though maybe the unlockables for other clans will be something different than haven decorations? I can't wait to see what it may be :D

It would be lazy and predictable for them to have clan decorations for the other clans. Therefore, I would imagine the other unlockables will be clan decorations.

Oh, definitely a rose...'cause that's the Toreador clan symbol. XD

Lmao I thought about trying to describe it, but that's almost exactly what I would say. Oh my...I just Googled it, and it looks like the Tremere symbol changed! Now instead of a ball-square-triangle thingy, it's a whole shitload of balls, squares, and a triangle!

Oh, and the Ventrue clan symbol has changed since Bloodlines 1. It's now a scepter AND a sword, crossed over one another at a diagonal. Nossies still have their weepy drama mask, Malks still have their broken mirror...I haven't looked at the V5 Gangrel symbol, but I imagine it's the same. Ah here we go: https://whitewolf.fandom.com/wiki/Gangrel_(VTM)

Okay so basically it looks like all the clan symbols are more or less what they used to be, just with new artwork...though I would say the addition of the sword to ventrue has some "oomph" to it.

I'm reading about it and it's quite the complex piece of math and alchemy symbols. Goddamn tremeres !

On the bright side, it sounds like that blood-bond-to-the-higher-ups no longer exists in V5, which makes Tremere sound much more interesting from a pen and paper game perspective. I always hated the idea of playing a Tremere in the older versions of the pen and paper because I would expect to be doing secretive shenanigans with my clan, then my grandsire comes along like "Yo, tell me your secrets" and I have to due to the blood bond unless I can pass a willpower roll.

Then again, any Kindred with Dominate could force any other Kindred who fails a roll to do as they please, but it was especially bad for Tremere since they have their own clan society and it wouldn't be uncouth to do such things to progeny, whereas it could be seen as hostile with a Tremere Dominating another clan member, at least "publicly."

They are quite the amazing clan actually. Unsung heroes of the World of Darkness when they battled the Tzimisce during the Dark Ages. Shame a few tumorheads like Bertram Tung don't seem to remember that !

I think the reason Kindred don't trust tremere is...well, two things: one, they are more devoted to their clan than a cause than most other clans, and two, they can do some really frightening stuff with their Disciplines/rituals. For example, there's a ritual they can do to create a stake which actually KILLS Kindred. Oh, and if you fail to hit the heart? A splinter will be inside the Kindred, wherever you stabbed it...and the splinter will magically move through the Kindred's body without it necessarily knowing it's happening, until the splinter pierces the heart...giving instant Final Death. You have to have another character attempt to remove the splinter, or lop the body part off (provided it's not in your head or your torso, in which case that's not a survivable option, really).

And what's worse, since it's a ritual, that means it's prepared in advance...and the Tremere doesn't need to wield the stake. The Tremere could give it to a Brujah or someone else with great melee skills to ensure that the attacker has a great chance of actually pulling off a good staking.

You might say "but the Tremere is putting his life on the line by even creating that stake! The Brujah could kill the Tremere with it! Oho, you'd be right...if not for the fact that another ritual allows a Tremere to turn his/her heart into stone, so it's impossible to be staked. XD

The list goes on of the crazy stuff Tremere can do. Heck, and that's just listed stuff in the manuals. Supposedly, you can simply tell the Storyteller what kind of spell/ritual you would like to do, and most anything is possible, though you would need certain components, etc. I think Mages can go to further extremes, like shifting gravity and teleporting willy-nilly all over the place, but Tremere can go much further in terms of a variety of abilities than any other Kindred clan.

That's just way too overpowered xD ...

I know, right? And in the another topic, I just posted that they have a ritual to automatically wake them up if they're in danger during the day. Other Kindred are just screwed if they get found by a Hunter or rival's ghoul in the afternoon. XD

Oh, and you can make a one-way teleportation circle that you can take one person through with you as a ritual, too. You do have to prepare the entry and exit ahead of time, but you could totally have your escape teleporter in a back cubby of your haven in case you're attacked, with the exit in a storage shed you rented under another name to pop out in with a buddy. Then just mess up the exit circle after you're through, and no one will find you.

Ha, or same ritual, but you could do a big, epic heist/assault to acquire a relic from the Sabbat and have your teleportation circle prepped in a hidden spot like a sewer just off to the side of their building, then come running out of it and make a getaway for you and your ally as you're being pursued...or be a total jerk and salute your "ally," stepping into the circle at a dead end of the sewer as the enemy rushes up, making a snarky remark and teleport away by yourself, leaving your "ally" to suffer at the hands of the Sabbat who were pursuing the two of you (assuming your "ally" pissed you off a while back and you've been waiting for epic revenge, etc.).

The next unlockable reward is the Haven Decoration Tremere Clan Sign.

So that means very likely that Ventrue, Toreador and Nosferatu/Malkavian also get a Haven Decoration Clan Sign.

Lazy, but at least it's free, I suppose.

Hopefully some cool stuff! Could you imagine a visiting Kindred's reaction if they came into your haven and saw that you were flagging a Tzimisce clan symbol? Like...in the mortal world, that would be like going into someone's home and they've got a huge Nazi flag hanging from the wall. XD

Can't have Tremere guests in that case. Lol.
