First and first I am not a legacy fan boy. I couldn't really care if they did or not but with the recent info on all the pirate stuff and the fact that my Youtube subs are talking about it a lot I figured I would brain storm the way I would like to see them implemented if they were to actually ever do it.
First step would be to make it a paid service, I do not mean a sub for just legacy a flat one time payment at the beginning of the season (i will go into that soon) on top of keeping an active Live account. So you would not have to pay monthly for the legacy as well as a monthly for live just one sub and a one time a year payment for legacy.
Now what I meant by seasons is at the bottom of the server list page when you boot the game up you see at the end PVP Tournament. This is a paid service that you buy your way into for the season. You pay for a character and then nothing else other than your live account fee. This would be the same for legacy, because the content is limited they cant really build onto the content from 13 years ago, so how to keep it fun and fresh? Well season it. Open registration up for it and you pay some where between 10-30 dollars to get a character for that season. The seasons last a year give or take the length that Vanilla was live before BC showed up. During this time they will stagger the content releases. Each Tier a race and a leader board. As guilds and teams pass these check points they get rewards for their live account. Once all content has been released and a certain amount of time has past the world is shut down Toons are wiped rewards are given out in live and its refreshed and started again. For another payment of 10-30 dollars.
What would this do? It would create reason for those of us who have no true interest to show some interest. It would create a competitive idea around the legacy as well as bring bonus to the characters we do truly care about our mains. Now this would just be one server type.
In total each region will be given 4 servers for legacy PVP-Ranked/Non-Ranked, PVE-Ranked/non-ranked. The non-ranked servers will be constant and be where the Ranked characters are Transferred at the end of the season. Making a non-ranked character still cost the 10-30 but it is forever yours.
At the end of each season you could get awards that are based on your rank. Participation and high ranking. Mounts, pets, titles things that can show people in live you a Nostalgia bad ass.
Now Obviously this is just a idea not 100% it would work and it would of course need work, but it would give the people who want legacy a way to play it, it would draw in people who would want benefit from it, and it would be something that could make blizzard even more money on WoW.
What are your thoughts? What would you add or remove? How long would a season be? Let me know.
