What next ? Achievements ? I mean come on. Not elitist, but the nature of this game is such that do we really need gifts because we play ? The client and updates are free, the cost to play is in line with other MMORPGs. I'd rather have them spending time making the game play better and reducing lag and such than giving out titles or oddball ships or a skill only 2003 players can have.

WoW and EQ and UO ----> That way.

While it'd be cool, I'd rather be spared from the "I WANT MY BIGGER EXPLOSIONS AND CCP DENIED ME" whinge all over the forums

how about they make that chars can randomly forget skills. and the older the char is, the higher the probability is?

i mean, the older you are, the more forgetfully you get, right?

edit: on a serious note. didn't veteran players just get certifies, to brag around with all their accomplishments?

What, our fabulous wealth, T2 BPOs, rare event items aren't enough?

The fact that veterans have had more time to play and grow than the rest of us is reward enough. grow some balls and keep playing or gtfo.

What if you're an old player but have never had any of those? Confused

also, i'd say no to anything that could affect gameplay. Medals and Ambulation accessories and stuff are okay though.

There is already a veteran reward: Skill Points. Massive amounts of Skill Points.

My thoughts exactly on this subject.

The veteran rewards with Tabula Rasa were just bits of pretty fluff. But nice to have anyway. But like everything else they will soon (and not a CCP soon) cease to exist.

If I had to choose between veteran rewards or a working server, I would choose the latter.

I agree with above poster.

Allot of games have veteran rewards, and ones that were around long before WoW. Its not a bad thing, they are usually useless items anyway, like Guild Wars gives minipets every birthday.

I'm not saying no, I'm just trying to think about whey someone would want a reward. Elaborate about why some of you feel you need rewards for being around a long time? Are you having no sense of accomplishment? Are you feeling you deserve it? Do you want to just show off to the young players? Get to the heart of it and think why do you really want those rewards and let us all know the answer.

That being said, it sounds fine to me. Maybe they should reward people just for the fact that it makes people all fuzzy inside.

I tell you something that I would like to see. I would like see something akin to the little t2 diagonals they have on ships and modules on avatars, so that in forums and ingame people can very pbviously see how long you have been ingame, so with just a I to appear when you have had an account active (so not counting offline periods) for a year, II for two years and so on.

Yes, I know. people can check employment history but the noobs rarely bothere to do so. I get sick of being told obvious stuff by people who have been ingame three months.

If like a Slaver Hounds head for wall mounting.

Ability to smoke a pipe and add leather elbow patches to my character would also do it.

thanks in advance.

The word is A LOT


not alot, not allot.

"Allot" usually means to move money in budgeting.

I don't really see the point, to be honest. Vets already have significant tangible advantages over new players, why do you feel the need to have extra recognition?

yes... just like WoW give me a little pet bear that can follow me around... wait... can a bear exist in space?

How about every year they nerf a random object to nothingness...

Give us all Unique Items or clothes.

Something that will show in Ambulation would be good. An item of clothing that's unique to players over a certain age, something that stands out like a Jacket or shirt with the Eve logo printed on the back and front. On our characters birthday, we get something else to add to the wardrobe similarly marked and unique.

Someone talking of medals reminded me, I hope that they can be pinned on the chest in ambulation. What's a medal for if it can't be paraded in public?

It's likely someone has stated this already, but your "veteran rewards" are MOAR skillpoints.

I don't think it's a bad idea, providing it is something which dosen't give a player a competitive advantage.

Also, it would have to be rationalised as to not effect immersion. Some kind of reward per year of being a 'pod pilot' could make sense from an RP perspective, also it would probably help to a build a long term players attachment to the game, which CCP should want to encourage.

A different noobship would be nice.

Can i just say Chribba should have an aurora of Veldspar dust around him at all times? Ala Tinkerbell and pixie dust.

Ok, back to the shrooms....

i fully agree a veteran trofee or somehting like it would be nice when ambulation hits :) or a picture of you taken in the first months of you flying in eve published in a nice frame wich u can put somewhere in your quater :))))) then again not all have screen shots of something that old.. but a funny idea anyways.. would infact be funny regardless if they add soemthing like that.. ohh mann ambulation will revolutionice eve.. theres just so many aspects to eve wich are to be unflded :==)))) cant wait..

A water bowl for my slaver hounds would be nice, I take a couple of them wherever I set up for missions.

By the way, they're like most dogs, just want to hang around and go for a walk every day.
