Suggestion Box: Refer an Imaginary Friend

Ahh, the weekend. Even if you work on weekends, it has that more relaxed vibe usually, so it suits this week’s Suggestion Box topic: referring friends.

In case you hadn’t heard, SWTOR now has a refer-a-friend feature, allowing up to three of your friends to try out SWTOR for seven days for free.

So: ignoring totally your actual friends, who would you invite out of anyone worldwide to try the game out? Assume that whoever you invite will accept and play for the seven days. Be as creative / cynical / harsh as your weekend vibe allows šŸ˜‰

I’ve chosen:

My boss: in the hope I’ll then be paid to play SWTOR as a business exercise

George Lucas: who wouldn’t want to thrash him in PvP or a duel?

Julian Assange: he’d so be rolling an Agent or Smuggler.

So let’s hear yours!

Oh – and we’d love it if you could fill out our reader survey – there’s a t-shirt prize on offer šŸ˜‰


  1. Kevin Rudd – He couldn’t beat Julia so at least he can have a go at beating the false emperor Malgas.

    The Pope – As playing a sage or inquisitor they would have matching clothing style.

    Elvis – gotta have a rocking smuggler traveling the galaxy

  2. The guy who played young Anakin – Because he hates star wars now, and I need to punish someone for Lucas’ insolence.

    Bobby Kotick – Because he’s a plague upon the gaming industry.

    Stephen Reid – Because he’s the best CM I’ve ever seen.

  3. Hmmm… ok, so if Julian’s too busy, how about the old execdir of the Tor Project from when he was setting up Wikileaks? Oh right, she’s already playing – her main’s a smuggler on Lord Adrass…;)
