Give a Gift of the 'Verse
While we do have ways for citizens to send gifts to their friends, we're making it simpler and easier than ever before. A new set of pledges have been created that will allow a player to send one of these select items directly to a friend immediately after check out with no waiting period.
Currently, when these types of pledges are made available the list of pledge gifts includes Gift Cards in varying values, but for certain events we may add additional items to this list.
Gift Check-Out Page
The initial flow for making a pledge remains much the same for these gift items, however there will be one new page to confirm where the pledge should be delivered as shown here:
In order from top to bottom:
- Recipient email - Your friend's email address. Your friend will need to login to their RSI account to claim the gift. They should create an account before you send them the gift.
- Confirm recipient email - Same as above to ensure that a valid email with no typos was provided.
- Name of the gift recipient - Your friend's name, or their nickname, to be included in the short message when the gift is sent.
- Enter a gift message - A personalized greeting or other message that will be included in the gift email that is sent to your friend.
All of these text boxes must be filled out before the gift will be sent and the pledge order completed. Be certain to double check
Pledge Gifts - FAQs
Can I use store credit to pledge for one of these?
Pledge Gifts are only available on the pledge store for cash. Store credit orders will not be allowed.
Can I send a pledge gift to myself?
No. These pledges are specifically designed to be gifted to another RSI account and you should receive an error when attempting to send it to your own email address.
If you have somehow managed to send a Pledge Gift to yourself, the pledge will not function and you will need to contact RSI support for assistance.
Can I gift these to someone else if I receive one?
No. These items function exactly like a normally gifted pledge would and will be bound to the account that accepts it. RSI support staff will not assist with transferring one to another account.
For information on gifts in general, check out our guide here.
Are these pledges reclaimable?
Yes! The gift cards specifically cannot be used until they have been reclaimed on the recipient's account.
Do I have to make separate orders if I want to send gifts to multiple people?
You do not! Multiple instances of the text entry fields shown in the screenshot above will appear on the page along with the name of the pledge. You can enter multiple recipients all at once if you are sending multiple Pledge Gifts to multiple people.
I accidentally sent the gift to the wrong email address!
If the gift has been claimed by the recipient, then unfortunately RSI support staff will not be able to assist. This is why it is very important to double check the recipient email to make certain it is being sent to the right place before completing the order.
If the gift has not yet been claimed, you will need to place a ticket to RSI support for assistance.
