Blizzard defend recruit-a-friend changes: "we were cutting that shared experience short”


World of Warcraft’s patch 7.3.5 seriously overhauled the game’s level-up experience, introducing much-needed worldwide scaling as well as introducing Legion’s epilogue and other snazzy new features. However, due to the increase in pacing from these changes, the recruit-a-friend experience boost was decreased from 200 per cent to just 50 per cent “to ensure the experience boost doesn’t upset game balance and undermine the experience”.
