2nd Anniversary Rewards are underwhelming

Even designing a special event would be more fun I think, like some celebration in-game of sorts. I don't really need items at all, I more want the experience of some milestone passed.
Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

I agree an in game event to commemorate the 2nd anniversary could have a lot of potential for fun for the community. A lot of other mmo's have them and I have always enjoyed myself during those events.

Just be careful how you word that though. Saying you "want" something around here quite often gets you slapped with the "self entitled" label by the local forum police / thread derailers.

That's extremely underwhelming. Considering the constant balancing act between what to permit for free for F2P players and giving subs reasons to stay subbed, it seems like BW would be better served by having a veteran rewards program for subs as opposed to only have these periodic minor rewards for everyone, regardless of length of time played. CoH had a pretty good veteran rewards program which had various benefits at every 3 months of sub time that got better and better the longer you subbed. I realize that this is just a reward for the anniversary of the game and not only for subs or based on length of time subbing, but it just highlights that some people have been subbing for 2 years now....and maybe they ought to think about throwing subs a bone in terms of some kind of veteran rewards program. Let's face it, not only are the subs actively contributing money to this game each month in terms of sub fees, but they are the ones spending most of the CM money too. F2P aren't spending any money and preferred people aren't even paying for a monthly sub so I doubt too many of them are the high spenders on the CM. It's not a make or break type of thing, but just seems like it would be good PR for a game that could use some PR.
Step one: Appeal to a Veterans Appellate court located in your state (if you live in the states)

Step two: Spend an outrageous amount of money employing a lawyer to write a half page brief about why you think you should get veterans rewards

Step three: Receive a harsh denial and a note of stupidity for asking an Appellate court (which has little to no original jurisdiction) for a ruling when their job is to make sure that court cases from lower courts were fairly distributed

Step four: Spend time sulking because you don't have enough money left to employ a lawyer to take your case to a General Trial court.


And that is how you get veterans rewards

How about they do nothing? None of this stuff is interesting or useful anyway. All it does is bring out QQers on the forum. Might as well just let it go without any acknowledgment.
Be a lamb and click on this referral link, would you? You get free stuff and I get free stuff. Nothing to lose.
