It'll be a couple years before this really becomes cool. Should have only been available to people who logged in the first week or so.

I would have to agree, because as it stands now at least a million and a half people could potentially get the title. Nothing special about that until the game starts to die out in 10 years and then you have the equivalent of veterans sitting around in a cantina sharing pvp stories and reminiscing about the 'good old days'.

It is just a reward for paying for your sub past the free period off the bat. Fairly decent marketing scheme, really. As for rarity I remember how rare WoW's vanilla PVP titles quickly became. (even private/scout which you could get for 1 HK over the first year of the game) It'll be slightly easier to maintain than those, of course, since it'll be available to any and all alts too.

Yeah it does seem fairly pointless at the moment...but I look forward to the old man chatter.
