Not allowed to have a recruiter unless you pay for the game?

So I tried to get my friend into Faeria, and told him that the game was free to play and to set me as his recruiter. He downloads the game, plays the tutorial missions, and puts my name in the recruiter box only to receive the message ‘you cannot have a recruiter unless you purchase the full game’. Not only that, but once he purchased what was most likely the steam pack, he put in my name, but neither of us has received the rewards. Can someone tell us what the hell is going on here?

I moved your post to feedback and suggestions, hopefully someone from Abrakam will see it and help you out.
