From SmokeJumper on the EQ2 Forums:
Until now, veteran rewards were only accumulated by subscribers. That seemed fair because, we, we were all subscribers back when the program was created.
But now, there are a lot more options available to folks, and it just doesn’t make sense that a Free or Silver player shouldn’t be able to accumulate veteran rewards.
So starting from today, that’s what’s going to happen. All players will get veteran rewards based on the date of their account creation.
It’s already happening now. You’re accumulating time as we speak. Enjoy!
UPDATE from SmokeJumper. This change is NOT retroactive. So if you played EQ2 at launch and were hoping to login and get 1-8 year vet rewards, sorry Charlie.
This change doesn’t do anything retro-actively *at all*.
The veteran time that you’ve accumulated to-date is still valid and is preserved.
The change mentioned is from that date going forward. So everyone is earning time now, but this changes nothing at all for the vet time accumulated to-date.
