While there are quite a few people who say they won't be happy unless Blizzard gives the mount to everyone who has *ever* recruited a friend, many more are looking for a moderate policy that will make anyone who recently recruited a friend not think, "man, if I'd only have waited a couple of weeks/days/hours."I think a 10 day (the length of a trial) retroactive period would be reasonab;e if it is possible.And, mount issues aside, I don't see this new recruitment policy as a pyramid scheme to get in new players so much as it is another recognition that it is a long way to the top and will soon be getting longer with Wrath's cap moving to 80.They have already increased the leveling speed from 20 to 60, but the climb, while it can be lots of fun (I enjoy questing and instances, even if they are low level), is still daunting to those just joining the game and have friends who have been playing a while. The summoning and triple xp parts of the offer are there to lessen the impact.Will the next expansion bring us to 90? The way things are going, it looks like it will. At that point, I'm not sure if even this will be enough and WoW may have to go in a new direction to remain enticing to a new recruit. But that is a ways off just yet. :)
