Veterans Rewards

Veterans.jpg

The Veterans Points Reward program was implemented in Patch 15.9 and made available a special set of items for players who pay for the game. Players with paid accounts accrue points every 6 months that can be used to purchase items out of the Veteran terminals found in Tir, Borealis and Omni Entertainment

Gameplay Features[edit]

  • Players will be awarded veteran points based on how many months their account has been active. Months paid for in advance are not counted in advance.
  • Veterans points are awarded as follows:
    • 6 months = +1 Veteran point
    • 12 months = +2 Veteran points
    • 18 months = +3 Veteran points
    • 24 months = +4 Veteran points
    • 30 months = +5 Veteran points
    • 36 months = +6 Veteran points
    • 42 months = +7 Veteran points
    • 48 months = +8 Veteran points
  • Veteran points will apply to every character on an account, even newly created ones. So if a veteran player elligable for 10 veteran points creates a new character that character will have 10 veteran points ready to spend
  • Each character on an account can spend the total number of points so veteran points are not spread out across all your characters, if you are eligible for 10 points every character gets to spend 10 points each.
  • Veteran points will be used to buy items from the special veterans vendors

Design Considerations[edit]

The aim of the veterans program is to provide veteran players with some unique items reserved for those who have played Anarchy Online for some time. Some of the items are fun cosmetic items that we think our veteran players will appreciate and are in keeping with the sense of humour and style that Anarchy Online is renowned for. Secondly there are items that make the veterans life easier on their alternate characters (or even their main character in some cases). These include the option to use veterans points to purchase a low requirement Yalmaha or even some tokens to boost your token board. What we did not want to do was create a them and us situation where veteran items were seen as in some way essential to have a good character. To that end you will not find any items in the veterans program that make your characters more powerful or add stats. The point of the veterans program is to provide some fun and to help veteran players with some of the repeatable tasks on their alternate characters. Its also worth being aware that We may also be adding more items over time so players should be aware of that when spending all their veteran points.

Aspect of the Quabbit Aspect of the Quabbit The quabbit is a timid, indigenous life form that is native to Rubi-Ka. While some people profess their ability to commune with nature by altering their appearance to match other life forms, very few possess the skill and patience needed to charm one of these little creatures.

During a recent Omni-Tek gala event, renowned celebrity and philanthropist, Luther Kazmierczak; was seen with a seemingly tamed quabbit on his head. Not to be outdone, several others who operate in Kazmierczak's social circles sought similar headpieces, and just like that, a new market was born. This quabbit is a genetically modified version, made to be less skittish and energetic, allowing for anyone to keep it on their heads without fear of it running away.
