I didn't realize there was an in-game system to reward players for proper grammar like there is for gaining Legacy experience. Can you please tell me where it is?

Theres titles for everything in this game. Get to level 5 and youre a captain

Yet getting to legacy 50 and expecting something for it equates you to an undeserving elitist *****. Some of you guys should really learn how to troll better.

The only thing that changed was the number next to your character. That would, I think, be a broken progression system, and that's essentially where the legacy system is right now. Every legacy level gained past 25 is presently useless.
Bioware could only benefit from acknowledging those players that has spent alot of time playing.

This is all about positive thinking, unless someone gets jealous but each and every player can reach max leagacy level. There is no exclusion at all.

I recognise that they have no life.. Is that good enough ?
"If someone had came up to me in the 80s and said we will
be playing games with 1000s of people at the same time.
My response would have been,"but I only have 2 joysticks"

Do you say that to every player that does something extraordinary in a game?

Usually those players are rewarded somehow, look at the successful games like WoW or Starcraft 2 to name a few.

They all acknowledge their most dedicated players with some kind of recognition.

Bioware needs to rethink this and not let legacy fall into something that could have been a success but turned into a failure.

This has been said so many times, and on two of those occasions the Devs have actually responded. It's another "Soon", "We'd like to do that" issue. I've been legacy level 50 for 5-6 months, and it's a source of great irritation that still there isn't the smallest thing to acknowledge it.

I honestly wouldn't hope for anything soon. If a Dev responds to this it'll be a cookie cutter response taken from a template, with the same level of appeasement that they push out through all their communications. The bottom line will be now; why reward the veteran players with exclusive content (even something as small as a title, or a crystal), when you can sell it to everyone in the store for greater revenue.

They aren't prizing those who stayed, they are wanting to find new ways to milk those still to come.

Na, he says that to everyone who plays more then half an hour. How I know? Well look at this guy. Everytime he logs in he tries to continue questing, dies, rages and logs out again. Spent time for every ragequit session he plays: 30mins.

Pretty sure with all the people who abused the legacy "poorly thought out mechanics" when it first came out there are plenty of Legacy 50s.

It isn't that special.
This is my signature.

I agree. The legacy system as it stands feels like a "Congratulations! You have won access to another part of the store where you have to blow all your money to get anything! Don't you feel special now?"

Compare that to, say, Rift's Planar Attunement where xp gets you points, and you spend the points on very minor character upgrades. One's an alternate leveling system, and appealing. The other is just more gating before you can buy convenience unlocks.
